This is book 13 in the Horus Heresy series (16 if you count the audiobooks), and finally a book I haven’t read in the series. I went back to the beginning as there are numerous authors writing the series, there is no obvious timeline and they’ve been at it for years. As an idea of the timeline if you burned each of the FDO’s podcast’s onto a seperate disc, didn’t label them, threw them up in the air, scooped them all up and started listening to them from the top of the stack, that’s what its like. It was about 14 pages into this book that I decided to go back. Characters that hadn’t appeared since Book 3 had suddenly turned up again and I had no idea who they were. This time around I’ve created a massive timeline summarising each book.
