    Description

    Amidst the galaxy-wide war of the Great Crusade, the Emperor castigates the Word Bearers for their worship.

    Distraught at this judgement, Lorgar and his Legion seek another path while devastating world after world, venting their fury and fervour on the battlefield. Their search for a new purpose leads them to the edge of the material universe, where they meet ancient forces far more powerful than they could have imagined.

    Having set out to illuminate the Imperium, the corruption of Chaos takes hold, and their path to damnation begins. Unbeknownst to the Word Bearers, their quest for truth contains the very roots of heresy.

    The Word Bearers are actually likeable!

    I've read about 10 books and the Word Bearers are always painted in a fanatical chaos light. However, I was surprised that the characters in this book were the funniest and most likable of all the legions thus far. That's what makes their fall all that much sadder. Like the Thousand Sons their fall to chaos is a tragedy.

    Oh Lorgar....

    Loved the book, a very cool look into a legions fall and their gene loyalty

    But oh Lorgar you loathsome piece of piss, you who think of yourself as compassionet, yet sacrifice your own Sons in your desperat quest, you who betray your Sons, just as you feel betrayed by the Emperor (although he, as always, does seems like a grade A arse)... And worst of all, You a Primarch let yourself be manipulated by your own Son and a Mortal... Oh Lorgar you weakest of Primarchs... I Body , Mind and Soul....

    Fantastic!

    Amazing look inside the fall or ascension, of the Word Bearers Legion. A must read book for any 40k/30k fan. I literally did not want this book to end.

    Best Horus Heresy Book Yet

    Deep characters and amazing story telling. I loved this book from start to finish. I can't wait for the series to pick these characters back up.

    Essential piece of the series. Wonderful narration

    This book tells one of the most essential tales about the Horus Heresy. The culture, philosophy, and mission of the Imperium are pushed to their breaking point, and then broken. Dembski-Bowden's The First Heretic has become one of my favorites in the series with wonderfully artistic writing and a strong set of fully rounded characters. Gareth Armstrong does an outstanding job narrating and he give texture to every character's voice. It's almost as if they're right there next to you.

    Critical piece of lore

    Great story, great narration. One tiny gripe is the narrators portrayal of the femal voice. It's kind of... Silly. Still, a very good story overall

    An Excellent Intro to the Word Bearers

    This is one arc of the Horus Heresy that I knew very little about. Now, I am hooked and can't wait to start Know No Fear. I personally didn't like how it jumps around at times, but once is I finished I see now that it needed to complete the story. Overall, this is a great book, and another awesome reading by Gareth Armstrong.

    Excellent writing, bad narration

    This is one of the best, and arguably most important, books in the Heresy series. The authorship is masterly, Dembski-Bowden does an excellent job combining the sci-fi and fantasy elements of the 40k universe, and really establishes the Word Bearers place in the storyline. His style is somewhat classical, sometimes feels like it was written in the 18th or 19th century. However, Gareth Armstrong is one of the worst narrators on Audible. He has such a nice rich voice, great for plain narration parts (and you would think also for the deep-voiced Space Marines and Primarchs). Unfortunately, he is not very adept at character voicing, most characters sound the same, especially women (of which there are several in this story). Bad guys rarely sound like anything other than goblins, regardless of who or what they are. He also utilizes an unusual "yodeling" voice for certain characters that is simply ridiculous. Again, he is excellent when simply reading scene descriptions (and, to be fair, the occasional character) but overall hurts an otherwise amazing book. I would love to hear him narrate a non-fiction book with no dialog. When a book has such a mix of characters, I think a narrator along the lines of a Simon Prebble, capable of maintaining a large range of unique voices, would be far more appropriate.

    Best book in the entire Heresy

    Dembski-Bowden once again proves why he is one of the best black library authors.
    The story flows well, the characters are likeable and in the end on can truly sympathize with the Word Bearers.
    The First Heretic is simply a good book.

    Amazing story

    Mixed feelings, betrayal, loyalty, honor, hatred, lies, truth.

    The characters and the story made me sad, laughing, grinning, filled me with hate and sorrow. Brilliant

    Heretically good

    Die Story ist spannend, packend und mitreißend. Vieles, das bisher in der Reihe angewchnitten wurde, wird in diesem Buch erklärt und die Hintergründe aufgearbeitet. Die Charaktere sind einzigartig und man möchte sich von keinem trennen. Der Sprecher ist erstklassig, ein absoluter Genuss, dieses Hörbuch zu verschlingen.
