Since the earliest days of the Great Crusade, Sanguinius – angelic primarch of the IXth Legion – was ever among the closest and most loyal of Horus’s brothers. But the Blood Angels have long kept their true nature hidden from the rest of the Imperium, and when the Warmaster hints that the key to their salvation may lie in the ruins of a conquered world, the sons of Sanguinius race to claim it. Now, as the revelation of their betrayal dawns and the traitors’ hand is revealed, the Blood Angels must face all the warp-spawned armies of Chaos, as well their own personal daemons, upon the blasted plains of Signus Prime...

A good addition
Surprising it took this long to get round to the blood Angels in the heresy series - I suppose they have to try and explain away why they vanish for most of the 7 year conflict and nobody wanted to dive right in with that! This book does a fine job of evoking some of the more epic religious style imagery you expect from the Horus Heresy - rather than too much emphasis on battle tactics and tech fetish nerd detailing. On the downside the Blood Angels and Sanguinius do come across as a bit dim witted - falling for just about every trap no matter how obvious. But they can't all be geniuses as well as soldiers I suppose. Definitely one of the better Astartes-kill-everything stories so far.
This book definitely shows the angel and how his men operate.
Amazin book, loved every milisecond of it!!!
