Far out on the Eastern Fringe, the realm of Ultramar stands alone. Having weathered the Word Bearers’ attack on Calth and the subsequent Shadow Crusade against the Five Hundred Worlds, the Ultramarines primarch Roboute Guilliman now draws all loyalist forces to Macragge as he contemplates a new future for mankind. With the arrival of more and more fugitives from the war that has engulfed the rest of the galaxy, all distinction between friend and foe is lost – isolated from Terra by fearsome warp storms, is Guilliman making a bid for power to rival even the renegade Warmaster Horus?


  • Finally..

    I'll get the clichés out-of-the-way: could not put it down, amazing story incredible imagery baba blah. This book is amazing to me because of how much it brought together. The individual trials and stories that are happening all through the Horus Heresy storyline, simultaneously and you don't feel like you're getting anywhere, even going back into the past, in some instances. It feels like a crossroads, I don't know where it's going but I can't wait to go on that trip.
  • Absolutely phenomenal

    By BostonDaemon
    Once again Abnett strikes gold! The complexity of interwoven plots is astounding. Pulling the "human" threads from a group of Demi-gods is art, and also where Abnett excels. Being a true Warhammer addict for over 20 years, I appreciate all of the little gems and clever references that make me remember. Thank you for your art Mr. Abnett Cheers
  • Wow...

    Not only possibly the Best Novel Dan Abnett has written but also the best 40K novel written.
  • Eye opening

    By Guardian general
    Loved it, its certainly a must but for horus heresy fans, it gives so much depth to vulkan, corax and guilliman and the lion, it also explains alot of clif hangers, ONLY discrepancy i had with te novel the perpetual john grammaticus is suppose to be an outrageously strong psyker with a legendary ship and weapons, and before men rose to power was a champion of chaos...but hes not any of this in the novel
  • Very good read

    By Blackops559
    Not much to say but that the book was a great read. After reading some of the early copies of the Horus Heresy I found myself saying I need another great read like that. This fill that gap for me. Enjoyed the read, and highly recommend.
  • Good work

    This story is really pulling together the series. Looking forward to what is next.
  • One of the series' best!

    By jenolen2161
    Abnett's Unremembered Empire is not your conventional 40K book. While it ties up (or further explores) lots of different ideas from the series, it's real achievement is that it's a political thriller rather than 40K "bolter-porn". There's intrigue, fears and aspirations, politics, assassination attempts, and so much more. You do need to have read the previous books in the series to get the most out of this book though, as it is a piece of a greater whole. That said, this is a great book with a clear and crisp writing style, with terrific ideas and an eye for detail that any 40K fan will be thrilled with!
  • A must buy....

    This was off the hook. Konrad Curze stole the show. Brilliant.
