Lorgar: Bearer of the Word (The Horus Heresy Primarchs Book 5) Kindle Edition
On the world of Colchis, mighty religions rule a decaying society in the name of absent gods – until the arrival of Lorgar. Primarch, prophet, leader of destiny, the Golden One is raised by Kor Phaeron, priest of the Covenant, to be his weapon in a quest for power. As religious war spreads across the planet, spearheaded by the Brotherhood of Lorgar, the primarch is plagued by visions of the future and the coming of the Emperor. To find his place in this new order, he must reach balance between the teachings of his adopted father Kor Phaeron, and the fate that he knows awaits him among the stars.
Read it because
We've seen Lorgar's fall to Chaos and rise as the high priest of Horus's rebellion, but for the first time, the full story of Lorgar's time on Colchis and Kor Phaeron's part in his childhood is told.

I'd like to think that Phaeron is right in teh end, that Lorgar was in control all along.

Gav Thorpe has, with this book, done a very good job in characterising Lorgar and showing the evolution of his personality as he discovers his powers and matures. Also good is the related and parallel changes in the relationship over time between Lorgar and the rather infamous and Khor Phaeron with the later starting as the master, then as the protector and surrogate father, then as the right-hand man.
The ways in which Lorgar, initially a defenceless child, is manipulated and put to use in Khor Phaeron’s interests leads to a warping (no pun intended!) of his personality. A related feature of Lorgar’s character is his delusional and mystical sides. He is, at times, naïve, credulous and idealistic. The combination makes him into a dangerous and self-righteous fanatic who – rather desperately - needs to believe in a cause and/or a religion. It also makes him blinkered at times, with a tendency to believe only what he wants to believe and a somewhat selective memory. At times, the flaws of the character appear clearly, including his inability to see Khor Phaeron for what he really is.
A further feature of interest is the rivalry between Khor Phaeron and another of Lorgar’s early companions who genuinely loves him and sees Khor for the manipulative and unscrupulous creature that he is. The opposition between evil and good, self-interest and real generosity, unscrupulousness and loyalty is clearly displayed throughout the book till the end, until one of the two triumphs once and for all.
Four strong stars.
