Every two weeks we read a new book in the WH40k universe and discuss it on our podcast. We invite you to read along with us and join in on our conversation via comments, Twitter, email, or vox cast.
For this episode, we’re reading Helbrecht by Marc Collins. You can purchase it at Amazon, Black Library, or Audible.
From the back of the book:
An heir of Sigismund has been reborn.
The Shrine Worlds Crusades are over. The Rubicon Primaris has been crossed.
Chastised by Guilliman, the Primarch Returned, and guided by a vision from the holy God-Emperor Himself, High Marshal Helbrecht is called to the ruinworld of Hevaran. Forged in the fires of the Scouring, Hevaran is sacred in its desolation, condemned never to rebuild… Yet hidden upon its barren surface is a sacred relic. Questing to reclaim it with but a few select souls to aid him, Helbrecht must trust in his skill, his wrath, and his faith as an ancient enemy returns to test him as never before.
Questions to ponder after reading Helbrecht: Knight of the Throne:
- Did you like the book?
- What parts stood out to you?
- What do you think of Helbrecht as a character? As a Templar? As a leader?
- What did you make of his journey of discovery? Was Guilliman’s chastisement the right thing?
- Do you like the Templars as a chapter?
- Warsmith Vakra had some … opinions. Do you understand his point of view?
- Where does Helbrecht–and, by extension, the Black Templars–go from here?
