Book Review 216 // The Path of Heaven: The Horus Heresy, Book 36 by Chris Wraight

Time for the final book review of 2022! It's time I feel to read a full-length book about the Horus Heresy, I've been treading the path of the audio junkie for too long. Unfortunately for me, the next book is a White Scar title which is a legion I have little love for. Wish me luck!

Title: The Path of Heaven (The Horus Heresy #36)
Author: Chris Wraight
Blurb: For too long had the Vth Legion ranged out beyond the sight of the wider Imperium, remaining ignorant of the Warmaster’s rebellion and the war that inevitably followed. Only once their primarch, Jaghatai Khan, had satisfied himself that the path before them was just and true did the White Scars choose a side, taking the fight to the traitors on every front. But, four years later, the Legion’s unfettered spirit has been broken by relentless attritional warfare against the Death Guard and the Emperor’s Children – the Khan’s Stormseers must find a clear route to Terra if they are to take part in the final, apocalyptic battle.


Yep, still not a fan of the White Scars lol. But that didn't take away from is a great novel. The novel has great pacing, with plenty of action and mystery to keep me intrigued throughout.

It's hard not to talk about these novels without releasing some spoilers so you have been warned (but also this is an old novel so those in the know, know already).

Up first you have hopefully read Scars the earlier title, if not start there. But it would seem the White Scars have been a busy legion. Due to always being on the outskirts of the known galaxy they have found themselves on the wrong side of the enemy lines. Always one to make the most of a bad situation the Khan has been using this chance to harass and destroy the Warmaster's supply lines. Unfortunately for them, this has finally annoyed the traitors enough and a hunting fleet has been sent out to destroy the White Scars.

This book does a great job of moving the story along, finally the plot moves once more! The author Chris Wraight is for sure a great writer, his work on the traitor forces in this title is amazing and makes me wish he would get a chance to do some of them instead of the Scars. I am glad I read this as it feels like a revitalization has taken place and it is time to push on!

Up next would be the Silent war but I am already working through that using audible, so it looks like Angels of Caliban is next, I'm excited for this one as I am a fan of the Dark Angels, the Nightlords and Gav Thorpe!

Audio Review 133 // Heart of Decay by Ben Counter

Time for something a little different, a story about two chapters I rarely read about. I hope it will spark my interest in them to paint one...
