After Desh'ea

A Horus Heresy unabridged audiobook

The War Hounds Legion have been reunited with their primarch. It is a time for rejoicing... isn't it? The masters of the Legion gather to discuss their new master, while the primarch, Angron, lurks in the darkness. Can Khârn unite master and servants?

The World Eaters make a lot more sense after listening to this tale of the first meeting between the Legion and its primarch. And of all their commanders, only Khârn has what it takes to calm the maddened Angron... a marked contrast from the defining image of the Betrayer.

With the discovery of the lost primarch Angron came violence and confusion, and what should have been the defining moment of the War Hounds Legion instead became a humbling embarrassment. As their senior officers fall one by one to the rage of the newly freed gladiator-king, it seems that they are doomed – perhaps their last chance for redemption comes in the form of the Eighth Captain, Khârn. Will this calm and level-headed warrior be able to lead his father into the Emperor’s light, or will he join the rest of his Legion in death?

Written by Matthew Farrer. Running time 1 hour and 7 minutes. Read by Toby Longworth.

The prose version of this tale is available in Tales of Heresy, book X of the Horus Heresy series.
