READ IT BECAUSE
It’s a deeply personal tale of two brothers, as Konrad Curze shows his love for Vulkan by, er, torturing him relentlessly and killing him over and over. Dark and twisted, and revelatory. Also features maybe the best use of a hammer in the entire Horus Heresy.
In the wake of the Dropsite Massacre at Isstvan V, the survivors of the Salamanders Legion searched long and hard for their fallen primarch, but to no avail. Little did they know that while Vulkan might have wished himself dead, he lives still… languishing in a hidden cell for the entertainment of a cruel gaoler, his brother Konrad Curze. Enduring a series of hellish tortures designed to break his body and spirit, Vulkan witnesses the depths of the Night Haunter’s depravity, but also discovers something else – a revelation that could change the course of the entire war.
