Publisher's Summary

The Heresy came to Calth without warning. In just a few hours of betrayal and bloodshed, the proud warriors of the XIIIth Legion - Guilliman's own Ultramarines - were laid low by the treachery of their erstwhile brothers of the XVIIth.

Now, as the planet is scoured by solar flares from the wounded Veridian star, the survivors must take the fight to the remaining Word Bearers and their foul allies or face damnation in the gloomy arcology shelters beneath the planet's surface.

In the novella-length Calth That Was, Graham McNeill highlights the fateful encounter that will alter the destiny of Captain Ventanus and shape the face of the Ultramarines Chapter for 10,000 years to come. The battle for Calth is far from over.

Awesome Compilation

These short stories are fantastic, insightful and entertaining glimpses that add yet more depth to the betrayal at Calth and surrounding story lines. Highly recommended so long as you have read/listened to the other books surrounding Calth.

Excellent Stories

i was put off by the other reviews but took the risk and was not disappointed. these stories fill in some gaps in between know no fear and other books in the series and the last 2 stories involving the athem and Ol Pierson give more human color and depth to the multi millennium conflict that is going "just as planned"

awesome

really good book I really like the battle for Calth. Anyone who likes the ultramarines will like this book. As for narrations I think J.K. hits it out of the park with his narrations he's the best.

Weaker of the series

There was one or two good stories but overall that could not save the book all together. Just a weak book.

So so at best

Not the best in the series by a long shot! Not the worst either. Couple early short stories are decent, most of the middle can be skipped, and the last two are the best!

Wasn’t entertained

Out of all the Horus Heresy I’ve read or listened too this was the least entertaining. The performance was great. However it was the Word Bearers stories I found to be lacking.

Great but not the greatest

I genuinely love all of the Horus Heresy books but this one, although interesting, didn’t quite hit the mark for me. I saw some other reviews that said this collection was worth skipping but I don’t think that’s true. It fills in some of the gaps for the aftermath of Calth and it expanded on the story one of my favourite perpetuals.

A mixed bag...

If you're working your way through all the books, you can give this one a miss. Doubly so if you've not read any of the others... the only saving grace is the last two short stories, and even then, you can probably skip this book.

Enjoyable but not the best

Id say only 1 story contributes to the overall timeline, enjoyable but not amazing, get it if you have a spare token.

Anthologies are always a mixed bag.

There were some really exciting and interesting stories. A couple dragged, but the betrayal at Calth is one of the aspects of the horus heresy that I really enjoy reading about, so I do recommend it to fans. Newbies to the Horus heresy are better off starting at the beginning of the series.
