Publisher's Summary

Born to a life of political conflict, Perturabo was always considered a child prodigy among the people of Olympia - indeed, his philosophical and scientific works were beyond compare. But then, after his rediscovery by the Emperor and decades of thankless military campaigning on the Great Crusade, the primarch begins to resent his Legion's place in the Imperium.
When word reaches him of turmoil on his adoptive home world, he orders the Iron Warriors to abandon their campaign against the alien hrud and crush this emerging rebellion by any means necessary....

Emotion in a Warhammer book

It constantly amazes me that a story about a universe of war can envoys such a deep level of emotion. The characters feelings and the timing in this book are phenomenal.

some are tragedies

Some stories have happy endings, and in an odd way this one does as well, although it over all feels like a tragedy that even the Greeks would be proud of.

Needs more Dantioch

Perturabo runs exactly as you'd expect. A promising enough beginning gives way to the standard tale of a disillusioned Primarch and sets up the premise for his eventual role in the wider Heresy.

Part of the problem is the format - the Primarchs books are substantially shorter than the full length novels and in the case of Perturabo it's entirely for the worse. The early years on Olympia and his own campaign of Unification are fascinating so it's all the more disappointing that our time with the Primarch is cut short to address the (entirely unnecessary) motivation for his betrayal. The final speech by his adopted sister crystallises what took Haley a third of the book and again, it's to the detriment of the novel.

That said, Perturabo marks a very welcome return for Barabas Dantioch. The Warsmith's story is woven in with the Primarch's and its the latter who suffers. Dantioch is fascinating and his brief appearance here makes me long for more of the crafty ancient. Compared to his gene-son Perturabo comes off as little more than a cypher and while not as useless a creation as Angron, he's certainly no Lorgar. Perfectly read by Jonathan Keeble, Perturabo is by no means a must but worth it very much for Dantioch alone.
