Unaware of the wider Heresy and following the Warmaster’s increasingly cryptic orders, Roboute Guilliman returns to Ultramar to muster his Legion for war against the orks massing in the Veridian system. Without warning, their supposed allies in the Word Bearers Legion launch a devastating invasion of Calth, scattering the Ultramarines fleet and slaughtering all who stand in their way. This confirms the worst scenario Guilliman can imagine – Lorgar means to settle their bitter rivalry once and for all. As the traitors summon foul daemonic hosts and all the forces of Chaos, the Ultramarines are drawn into a grim and deadly struggle in which neither side can prevail.

Superb instalment in the Horus Heresy series
Dan Abnett ahs proven time and again that he is a master of sci-fi writing. With his latest instalment in the HH series he spins a marvellous, rich tapestry of the Fall of Calth and the unbelievably bloody war between the Ultramarines and the Word Bearers. From titan battles to tank fights to ruthless hand-to-hand combat no stone is left unturned and you cannot help be finish this book in one sitting. He needs to come back and write more for the HH series. We are being starved for good stories by GW and aerated at least one more.
