The Khan returns! After the events of 'Scars', the White Scars Legion have chosen their loyalties. Now, after years of battle against the traitors, it's time to return to Terra and prepare for the inevitable invasion. But first, Jaghatai and his warriors must brave a gauntlet of enemies and the terrors of the warp...


READ IT BECAUSE
It's a brand new chapter in the Horus Heresy and begins the march to Terra – though perhaps not in quite the way you'd expect.

THE STORY
For too long had the Vth Legion ranged out beyond the sight of the wider Imperium, remaining ignorant of the Warmaster’s rebellion and the war that inevitably followed. Only once their primarch, Jaghatai Khan, had satisfied himself that the path before them was just and true did the White Scars choose a side, taking the fight to the traitors on every front. But, four years later, the Legion’s unfettered spirit has been broken by relentless attritional warfare against the Death Guard and the Emperor’s Children – the Khan’s Stormseers must find a clear route to Terra if they are to take part in the final, apocalyptic battle.

----------------------

Looks absolutely promising! With how epic Scars was, I am looking forward to sinking into this one.
A brand new HH novel for once, instead of an anthology.

This looks fun. Most of what I've read by Wraight has been pretty good, and he certainly did well with Scars.

Finished it. Pretty pleased with it. Starting out at a casual place and winding up all the way through the book to an absolutely explosive finale. Which draws in elements from all of his previous white scars stories and several other ones. This is definitely one of the better Heresy books and a worthy sequel to Scars.

But a certain guest of the white scars steals the show and I am quite curious to see whats going to happen to him in the future.

Though ill say that theres intriguing new insights into a very special device and its doings. Which clearly seems to be a lead for the Master of Mankind novel to come.

Sadly the double hit of the Eisenhorn and Night Lords trilogies has cleared my book fund out. Might be a while till this one gets read :(

Woah, they are really putting out a lot of HH novels this year. They even silently released the Tales of Heresy and Nemesis hardbacks.

Ooohhh boy, some Emperor's Children! Last I saw of them they were a bunch of incompetent gaggling idiots barely able to formulate or stick to a battle plan in Angel Exterminatus. Is this still the case?
