A Horus Heresy novella
After the Triumph at Ullanor, Jaghatai Khan led the White Scars to Chondax and then vanished from all sight. Only after years of war against the orks does his story become known...
READ IT BECAUSE
This is the first time the White Scars have been shown in any detail in the Horus Heresy series. In this book, their trademark method of war is demonstrated to brutal effect against the unfortunate remnants of an ork empire. And a unique structure contrasts how the White Scars see themselves and how the Imperium views them.
As word of Horus's treachery spreads to fully half of the Legiones Astartes, Terra looks to the remaining loyalist Space Marines to defend the Imperium. One group, however, remains curiously silent in spite of apparent efforts from both sides to contact them - the noble Vth Legion, Jaghatai Khan's fearsome White Scars. In the ork-held territory of Chondax, a bitter war has been raging since the Triumph at Ullanor, and only now do the sons of Chogoris return their gaze to the heavens...
Written by Chris Wraight. This story is also available in Legacies of Betrayal, book XXXI of the Horus Heresy series.
The audiobook edition has a running time of approximately 4 hours and is read by Jonathan Keeble and Penelope Rawlins.
