Mustering for war against the orks, the Ultramarines Legion is attacked by the Word Bearers on the planet of Calth, and the forces of Chaos openly reveal their part in the Heresy.

Unaware of the wider Heresy and following the Warmaster’s increasingly cryptic orders, Roboute Guilliman returns to Ultramar to muster his Legion for war against the orks massing in the Veridian system. Without warning, their supposed allies in the Word Bearers Legion launch a devastating invasion of Calth, scattering the Ultramarines’ fleet and slaughtering all who stand in their way. This confirms the worst scenario Guilliman can imagine – Lorgar means to settle their bitter rivalry once and for all. As the traitors summon foul daemonic hosts and all the forces of Chaos, the Ultramarines are drawn into a grim and deadly struggle in which neither side can prevail.
Dan Abnett is one of the Black Library’s bestselling authors with hit series such as Eisenhorn, Ravenor and Gaunt’s Ghosts as well as several Horus Heresy novels, such as Horus Rising.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dan Abnett wrote it, so its great I'll be the first to admit it, I don't like the Ultramarines, I also love the Word Bearers. If you feel the same, this is the perfect novel for you. Essentially this novel is the Word Bearers showing up at Calth, the Ultramarines thinking "oh hey man, we're all good right?" and then at the last minute the Word Bearers betray them and start slaughtering Ultramarines in the (tens of?) thousands. Most of the novel takes the perspective of the Ultramarines and their desperation to survive and come to grips with the psychological grief of the situation. The characters are surprisingly likeable and were enjoyable to read. Overall an excellent novel with great writing.
