BoLS Book Club – Knights and Scars and Heresy
This week: two Imperial Knights and a heck-ton more White Scars fight Chaos.
Not together–though that WOULD make for an amazing story (call me, GW)–but this week’s releases do consist of a double dose of ruinous powers getting what’s for. Whether it’s at the hands and titanic weaponry of two Knight pilots (Knight Riders if you will), or at the pointy end of Jagatai Khan’s own cadre, Chaos is in for a world of hurt.

The Khan returns! After the events of ‘Scars’, the White Scars Legion have chosen their loyalties.

It’s a brand new chapter in the Horus Heresy and begins the march to Terra – though perhaps not in quite the way you’d expect.
For too long had the Vth Legion ranged out beyond the sight of the wider Imperium, remaining ignorant of the Warmaster’s rebellion and the war that inevitably followed. Only once their primarch, Jaghatai Khan, had satisfied himself that the path before them was just and true did the White Scars choose a side, taking the fight to the traitors on every front. But, four years later, the Legion’s unfettered spirit has been broken by relentless attritional warfare against the Death Guard and the Emperor’s Children – the Khan’s Stormseers must find a clear route to Terra if they are to take part in the final, apocalyptic battle.

An Imperial Knights novel
When a tragedy occurs and an Imperial retribution force is shattered, two young Imperial Knight pilots must work together and learn the ways of war if they – or the world of Donatos – are to survive.
READ IT BECAUSE
It’s war on a larger scale – Imperial Knight scale! Two novice Knight pilots against an entire world of enemies – sounds like a story for the ages.
The Knight Houses of Adrastapol are both noble and righteous, and when the Imperial world of Donatos falls to the heresy of the Word Bearers, they are foremost in the vanguard to retake it. Led by High King Tolwyn Draconis, the Knights are peerless in battle and strike deep into the enemy’s ranks. But the war soon turns when a terrible tragedy strikes, casting the Imperial campaign into anarchy. As desperation grows, unblooded Knights Errant Danial and Luk must quickly learn the ways of war to prevent an unholy ritual or Donatos will be lost and all the noble Houses of Adrastapol with it.
