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 Angron: The Red Angel by David Guymer. You can purchase it at Amazon, Black Library. and Audible .
From the back of the book:
In the darkness of Imperium Nihilus, across half a million worlds cut off from the dim light of Holy Terra, a beacon is lit. The Red Angel returns to an unsteady galaxy and his scattered sons heed the call to slaughter. Aboard the World Eaters’ flagship, Kossolax the Foresworn, self-appointed lord regent of the XII, fights to keep the old dreams of the Legion alive, but finds the return of his hated father both an opportunity and a threat to the warriors’ fragile unity.
Marooned on a worthless moon with a rag-tag band of traitors as despicable as himself, Ortan Leidis of the Angels of the Grail dares to dream of something greater.
Half a galaxy away, Graucis Telomane of the Grey Knights has been readying himself for this day, and plans six centuries in the making are finally set in motion – plans that will see the eradication of the Emperor’s greatest mistake once and for all…
Questions to ponder after reading Angron: The Red Angel:
- Did you like the book?
- Which parts stood out to you?
- Do you like Kossolax as a villain? Is he a going to be a problem for the Imperium going forward?
- Angron seems … well. Do you like him as Big Bad?
- What did you think of these Grey Knights? Did you like Graucis? Dvorik?
- The book spends a lot of time in the past. Is this effective? Did you like it?
- Was their plan/trap “worth” it, in the end?
- Conjecture time! We know the Lion is coming to kick Angron’s butt. What next?
