After thousands of years of expansion and conquest, the human Imperium is at its height. His dream for humanity accomplished, the Emperor hands over the reins of power to his Warmaster, Horus, and heads back to Terra. But is Horus strong enough to control his fellow commanders and continue the Emperor's grand design, or will such incredible power corrupt him?

A surprisingly good introduction to the story of the Horus Heresy, thick with deep characters and deeper, darker plots. A familiarity with the Warhammer 40,000 world is helpful, but not required, so this book would be good for military sci-fi fans in general.

I say surprisingly because Dan Abnett hs a mixed reputation among some readers- this is my first read of one of his books. He comes from a background of comics and light fiction, so this daring and detailed book is a welcome break from this reputation.
