Plot Summary

In the strategium of the Vengeful Spirit, Warmaster Horus appears to talk to himself as he ponders his invasion of the Imperium. He expresses regret that, despite the righteousness of his cause, only the worst of the primarchs have joined him, describing them as broken monsters with which he must remake the galaxy. He wishes that Roboute Guilliman was on his side and compares Alpharius unfavourably with Corax. At the end of his speech he is revealed to be addressing the skull of Ferrus Manus.
