Lorgar: Bearer of the Word (Hardback) $19

Primarchs Book 5

Long before he brought Chaos and war to the Imperium, the primarch Lorgar was raised on the world of Colchis, used as a weapon by the xealot Kor Phaeron in his bid to control the whole world. But Lorgar’s destiny was far greater…

READ IT BECAUSE
We’ve seen Lorgar’s fall to Chaos and rise as the high priest of Horus’s rebellion, but for the first time, the full story of Lorgar’s time on Colchis and Kor Phaeron’s part in his childhood is told.

THE STORY
On the world of Colchis, mighty religions rule a decaying society in the name of absent gods – until the arrival of Lorgar. Primarch, prophet, leader of destiny, the Golden One is raised by Kor Phaeron, priest of the Covenant, to be his weapon in a quest for power. As religious war spreads across the planet, spearheaded by the Brotherhood of Lorgar, the primarch is plagued by visions of the future and the coming of the Emperor. To find his place in this new order, he must reach balance between the teachings of his adopted father Kor Phaeron, and the fate that he knows awaits him among the stars.

Written by Gav Thorpe.

  • Moonsaves

    With Guilliman back, Calgar feels more than a bit redundant.

    • ZeeLobby

      Yeah. I wouldn’t be shocked if he just died at some point to make room.

    • georgelabour

      Oddly enough Calgar actually feels that way too.

      It’s covered in the novel Dark Imperium if you’re curious.

    • Ronin

      Well, Guilliman isn’t really around Ultramar as much since he’s a high lord and has to take care of the greater imperium so there’s still a place for Calgar to lead the Ultramarines.

  • No mention of Ravenor being in audiobook format now? Or Black Library audiobooks finally being on Audible (at least 40 of them)?
