Audio Review 87 // Twisted by Guy Haley

Continuing this run of Horus Heresy. I have a goal to finish the entire series, and I can almost see the finish line. It's so close.

Title: Twisted
Author: Guy Haley
Since he was crippled by rebel treachery on Sixty-Three Nineteen, Maloghurst ‘the Twisted’ has continued to serve Warmaster Horus as his closest aide and confidant. His loyalty has remained constant, but the XVI Legion has changed – rivalry and personal ambition run rife, and although Horus’s authority is supreme, his equerry’s is certainly not. When a daemonic plot to infest the Vengeful Spirit comes to light, Maloghurst reluctantly turns to the few allies he has left: the mysterious Davinites.

You can’t beat a good mystery, and Twisted delivers one with plenty of suspense and cunning. Maloghurst, the equerry to the Warmaster, is searching out the culprits who have brought aboard vile spirits. His resolve to see things to the climatic end is shocking.

A very surprising short tale. Maloghurst the Twisted has been pretty quiet since appearing early in the series. But now he is back, and we get to join him as he fights to prove his worth and hang on to his role in a rapidly changing Legion.

This happens as a Neverborn (daemon) stalks him through the Vengeful Spirit, whispering false hopes and promises. All Maloghurst has to do is succumb to the joining. This is a great follow-up to the Vengeful Spirit novel by Graham McNeill. And it also seems to make The Twisted role the dark mirror image of the Sigillite. It is strange this character is not featured more in the stories. Enjoyable tale but I ultimately need more!!
