About this deal

It’s also interesting to see that while he’s a tactical genius he’s still very conventional and favors frontal attacks and straightforward techniques. While I’ve read The Buried Dagger, I’ll be honest that I don’t love the “he had no choice” answer offered.

The parallels between the enemy that he fights in this book, the tyranny that he fought on his homeworld in the past, and the monstrous entity that the Imperium later becomes is a clever plot device which works really well in this book. I did enjoy this book quite a lot and particularly liked diving deeper into the personality of Mortarion.

Why does a primarch so vehemently opposed to oppressors side with a chaos god who is not only brutal in his efficiency (you might say he’s … contagious?

Fresh from blowing the character studies of Vulkan and Guilliman, Annandale takes the chance to reflect.Sanguinius and Horus decide Mortarion screwed up and this is not what the Emperor wanted and that he is censured and what Mortarion did will take lots of times to undo. The fifteenth instalment in The Horus Heresy Primarchs series, The Pale King tells of the atrocities committed by the Reaper in the name of justice – and the consequences of challenging his methods. The parallels he saw between Galaspar and Barbarus were compelling (although not entirely convincing at times) and reflected his character well. By the end, Horus is also disappointed in Mortarion’s brutality, and they caution him to show more restraint.
