Publisher's 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?

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.

An awesome story and a return of fan favourites

The XVI legion is back and in prime focus for this story that centres on Horus and his Sons attacking Molech; a Knight World that guards a secret so powerful that the Emperor erased the memory of it from his Primarchs. It is this gap in his memory that motivates Horus to descend upon Molech. He believes that the Emperor gained his godly powers from the planet and plans to reap the same power for himself. At the same time, Malcador dispatches an elite squad of Knights-Errant to infiltrate the Vengeful Spirit in a potentially suicidal attempt to subvert Horus' march towards Terra.

Anyone who loved the first three books in the Heresy series because of the focus on Horus and his legion will love this book. Old characters return: Abaddon, Aximand, Loken, Qruze. And more, including a Death Guard warrior thought to be dead. There is plenty of dialogue between Horus and Mortarion, who has joined Horus' attack on the planet. But the best part is that we see the inner workings of the Sons of Horus now that a number of years have passed since the Heresy began. They have changed, but still retain similar personalities to what we remember, although they're far more uncaged. The interaction between Horus and his Mournival is also a welcome return.
