As the Great Crusade crushes the Imperium’s foes across the galaxy, the Word Bearers are castigated for their worship of the Emperor as a living god. Distraught at this judgement, Lorgar and his sons seek a new path, devastating world after world, venting their fury and fervour on countless battlefields. But at the very edge of the material universe, they encounter ancient forces far more powerful than anything they could ever imagine – having set out to illuminate the Imperium, the corrupting forces of Chaos instead take hold of the XVIIth Legion, forging for them a new and much darker destiny. ** Read it because ** The dramatic backstory to the Horus Heresy is revealed at last.
