It's a hard task to write a book that basically reads like a race against time... and ends on a downer note (so sad, you didn't make it in time!).

Also, quick question. The force being split off to go to ...

... is that being led by Belal (new name to me), or maybe Belath, from 'Call of the Lion'? Also, who is writing this short story?

Cheers,
P.
I'm also still dearly hoping the Lion and Russ meet up before the end and head to Terra together. Despite all the other huge and epic events of the Heresy that we knew of before the novel series, one of the most memorable and iconic images my imagination was, Horus being informed of the inbound loyalist fleet, then cutting up a massive loyalist fleet with the Lion and the Wolf stood side by side on the bridge of one. So strikingly iconic I guess, due to the it showing that in spite of the enormity of the betrayal, with the closest brothers turning on eachother, here you had to huge rivals stood side by side in unity on their way to break the Seige. I'm still holding out for it though, especially with Corswain having been ordered to find Russ.

It's Belal, who on a check of all the other First Legion novels, appears to be completely new. I'd also had to double check on Belath. It's written by Gav Thorpe.

Where have you got a fourth Primarch from aside from Guilliman, Sanguinius and the Lion?

in the quote on the first page abnett says " the lion hasn't punched guilliman yet, but the fan and the faeces are going to meet when the two of them find out which of their brothers are present in macragge city."
now this cannot be sanguinius as guilliman met him when he dropped out of the warp at the end of fear to tread. so who is it?

Either or. Nothing is creating regarding the twins. There's already signs of potential division between them which pretty much means anything could happen with them loyalty wise. Rule nothing out.

I definitely think its one of the alpha twins as they are probably the only ones sneakey enough to get into macragge city in the first place.

*Sigh* I really wish Jaghatai would show up. Would love to read Abnett's rendition of him and the Scars
