Yes, it should be released early next year at the same time as the hardcover.

Loving this book so far. On chapter 8, and it really does reveal a hell of a lot more than any other recent books about the relationships between the primarchs themselves and their father. Some good stuff about just how big, devious, widespread and long planned the Heresy was. Also a couple of hints back to the old Missing Legions chestnut. Hopefully get it finished tomorrow.

The novel has a nice balance of combat and interaction/drama. I feel that is actually has more of the latter, which will definitely please those readers who are tired of "bolter porn".

I would've really liked to see more combat between the White Scars and traitor marines. We'll hopefully get a lot of that in the books covering the Siege.

A bit of a speculative question...but who do you think would've won if the Khan and Mortarion had engaged in that final exchange? The Khan seemed more fatigued but Mortarion seemed to have suffered more wounds. However, it's kinda hinted that Mortarion's power has increases since Ullanor thanks to Nurgle.

Maybe, but I keep thinking back to the flashback of the Khan, Mort, Sang and Fulgrim chin wagging on Ullanor. Mort says that unless they actually fought you couldn't pick a winner because they were all made for different fights. I'm inclined to go with the Khan though, as it was more like the kind of fight he seems to have been made for.

The subtle hints that a primarch had already killed a primarch was an interesting easter egg about the missing legions as well. Also, the fact that the Khan didn't seem surprised when he was led to believe that Russ had turned traitor was an interesting fact as well. It was like he thought that would happen eventually.

To me, all the hints regarding "a primarch killing another primarch" seem to be referencing Ferrus Manus vs. Fulgrim.

When Mortarion confirms Ferrus's death, that confirmation alone is enough to wrongfoot the Khan, who is momentarily taken aback. I don't think the Khan would've been that shocked had another primarch already died by the hand of another primarch early in the Crusade.

I think the HH series is very vague on the topic, whether intentionall or unintentionally. Another primarch (Lorgar IIRC) views Ferrus's death as evidence confirming that primarchs can indeed be killed. That doesn't jive with the idea of the second or eleventh primarch being killed by Russ (or by any other primarch)

I wish they'd let those who got the individual episodes, get the full book for free.

Especially as those who bought it in instalments paid 18 for it in total, 6 more, without the illustrations or authors afterword.
