What was the justification for frontally assaulting a fortified position? No other option?

Pretty much. The Night Lords wanted the Pharos and to access the mountain where it is they would have to bypass that position. And leaving it active would just be idiocy.

Hum. Makes me think. The Silent King was in selfimposed exile in the void, until he discovered the Great Devourer and came back to the galaxy to set up a defense against it. He claims he met Sanguinius and tried to warn him about the threat, and had a death mask forged in his likeness. Taken from the short story The Last Word of the Silent King.

I daresay that the Pharos event might have woken up Szarekh as well and having an encounter with the devourer, before fleeing home. And comming to where he sensed the Pharos event.

Enjoyed the book. Really liked the story of the two brothers and the human sergeant.

I believe in Pharos, non-rage mode Sanguinius without power armour evenly matches Curze with power armour

have you read it, if so please elaborate ? From the spoilers I get a different impression, it is not that I really mind the stand off between the two (although I do feel that Curze his martial prowess is a little over the top after reading UE), it is just that I would have liked to read about Sanguinus brushing the red thirst,
