    Huron Blackheart, the Tyrant of Badab, has a longer history in 40K than Abaddon the Despoiler, the Tau Empire and the division of the Inquistion into separate Ordos. Huron has featured, memorably, in several stories, but only now is he getting to ‘star’ in one. Mike Brooks has shown himself to be one of the most economical authors in the Black Library stable- and once again he manages to squeeze a lot into fewer than 200 pages. Readers hoping for an in-depth recount of the Badab War are going to Huron Blackheart, the Tyrant of Badab, has a longer history in 40K than Abaddon the Despoiler, the Tau Empire and the division of the Inquistion into separate Ordos. Huron has featured, memorably, in several stories, but only now is he getting to ‘star’ in one. Mike Brooks has shown himself to be one of the most economical authors in the Black Library stable- and once again he manages to squeeze a lot into fewer than 200 pages. Readers hoping for an in-depth recount of the Badab War are going to be disappointed- that conflict is (hopefully) being saved for a series in it’s own right. Instead, we get a study of power. Blackheart is, both literally and figuratively, opposed to the Imperium of Man and this book shows us how he has managed to (Tyrant’s) Claw the significant power he has. The Tyrant of Badab is no longer able to count upon the implicit loyalty of his followers, instead having to rely on charisma and psychology as much as feats of martial prowess to maintain his empire. Some of my favourite ever 40K books focus on Traitor Astartes- they’re intrinsically more interesting subjects for fiction to me- and this sits comfortably alongside them.

    Fantastic book and a really good look at the imperium from the outside. Huron is a typical anti hero and someone you can’t help supporting despite his obvious malice.

    A rather short read, but it was entertaining. Makes me want to read more about the crusade started by Roboute. As well as further books dealing with The Red Corsairs and more importantly Huron, which is a great character who should be explored more in Black Library fiction.

    I liked it. It stands as a clear cut political intrigue novel with the traitor Astartes at the forefront. It is good to have a book about the bad guys that can give a lore fan perspective.
