Summary

Once the brightest star in the Imperium and always first among his primarch brothers, Horus has dragged the Space Marine Legions into the bloodiest conflict that the galaxy has ever seen. While their allies wage war on a thousand different fronts, the XVIth Legion descend upon the Knight world of Molech - home to the ruling House Devine, and a principle stronghold of the Imperial Army.

The forces loyal to the Emperor stand ready to defy the Warmaster, but just what could have drawn Horus to attack such a well defended planet, and what might he be willing to sacrifice to fulfill his own dark destiny?

Masterful!

A tour de force by McNeill and Armstrong both; one of the most epic and riveting descriptions of legion warfare in the series and a captivating description of heroes & villains, tragic and noble in their own ways. It made me question the motives for rebellion among the lower cadres, why follow Horus instead of the Emperor. It made me realise the bravery among the traitors, the insurmountable odds that they knowingly face and the willingness to face them head on, regardless. The martial pride of the Sons of Horus and their desire to master their own fate, even if it means facing oblivion, is inspiring!

good performance

I wish the characters were more likeable. but I didn't like most of them. Horus, the phoenician and mortarion were ok. so was Locken Rubio and the spacewolf. But most of the imperial regiment were very very forgetable. The story or objective first both horus and the grey knights should've been more meaningful. the way it was explained , that is the execution of the narration should have been more dire or elevated a little more.

world eater and psyker

alright so it's well known that world eaters don't like psykers, because it causes them physical pain to even be near them, so how could mae sa varin, the world eater sergeant possibly work together and be near the ultramarine librarian? and this isn't even mentioned in the book, the world eater doesn't even seem like a world eater, he has no sense of individuality, he just seems like some standard space marine, i guess that's my only gripe with youre book is that the world eater didn't seem like a world eater at all, no mention of the nails, he didn't seem hyper aggressive at all and he didn't try to murder the psyker i guess, besides that the book was good.

Seamus is here

Gareth is my favorite of the horus Jersey narrators his voices sound gritty and hard how I imagine the voice of a warrior bound to a life of eternal war should sound

Horus Heresy Book 29.

Good Book. In depth story revolving around Horus and Mortarium. Lokken returns as well in this tale. One of the better books in the series so far.
