Summary

Primarchs Book 8.

For long years, the White Scars have fought for the Imperium, bringing worlds to compliance. But when a new project, to embed psykers in the Space Marine Legions, seems likely to come to fruition, Jaghatai Khan must decide if he will comply.... 

Listen to it because Chris Wraight returns to the Khan of Khans with a tale set at the height of the Great Crusade and showing the momentous decisions that, in some ways, led to the darkest events of the Horus Heresy.

Good Book- good lore and chat

I liked the book - fleshed the scars out somewhat. Liked the Primarch discussions and wished there were more. Some drawn out fight sequences, which i am not a fan of, but not too much. Does raise lots of questions though. The timeline starts to get confusing too.

Mid tier for the primarch series

I would have preferred the story to be more on Jagathai's background before the Imperium, but I did enjoy the part about the beginning of the legion on terra and the dialogues of the primarchs. I would rate this mid tier of the primarch series and if you like the White Scars, this is still a "must listen".
Narration was great, as in pretty much all the 30K (and 40K) books.

what can do it? the khan can.

despite being one of the most easily forgotten people in the 40k universe, Jaghatai Khan carries a great presence here (hence the title of the book) but it's a great listen. you'd think a story about one of the primarchs you'd see space marines being overshadowed by their gene father, not here.

My Favourite Primarch

... All the other Primarchs tend to be gits, in some shape or form (either evil, deceitful, unstable or pompous) - but the Khan remains noble. This was a great listen, and hopefully Warhammer will produce more books about him. Recommended.

God its boring

I've read through most HH material to date but this thing is just a load of guff. Largely disposable characters droning on about nothing important that hasn't already been said better in former WS books . Demand better, people. These BL authors churn out books fast, and their quantity over quality approach really shows here. If you manage to make moustachioed future biker superhuman Mongolian cavalrymen BORING of all ​things, you have failed as an author

Good but could have been better

I struggled to grasp the big thread of the story. Battle sections where to long, rather had the focus on the Khan.

For the Khan!

Any fan of Jaghatai Khan, the White Scars, Primarch's or just Black Library in general, should definitely read this book. The Fifth Legion fmgets so love and deep insight, not just into there methods of war but also there culture, history and psychology. Also, an excellent reading by Johnathan Keeble, who pronounced a lot of very difficult names with barely any issues.

More jagatai please !

My third book about the white scars courtesy of Mr Wraight, in my opinion ADB and Chris Wraight are the best BL writers and this book is yet another superb tale about a legion I had not known much about before last week now I have listened to 3 books about them and I have found my Primarch

Great Read

Jaghati is my favorite Primarch and they did my boy justice. I'm only missing one more book in the White Scars series.

The Khan is center stage in this one.

This is the third book I've read in the Primarchs series. The other two, Roboute Guilliman and Leman Russ, were the story of a campaign. In that context, we learned more about each Primarch. Jagataghi Khan stretches from the Khans initial time on Terra to the very beginning of the Chondax campaign more than a century later. The story is broken down into major events during that time frame making it a little disjointed. There isn't really an overarching story. The only common thread throughout, is the White Scars philosophical conflicts with the Imperium and their views regarding psykers and the Librarius. That being said the book is a lot of fun to read. Wraight focuses entirely on the Khan and his closest advisors. If, like me, you enjoyed his previous White Scars stories you'll enjoy this.

My New Favorite

I went into this book with apprehension. I disliked the 5th Legion for being the motorcycle Legion. This book changed everything. White Scars are now my favorite. Their sense of freedom and unwillingness to be shackled is well developed here. Jagathai Khan is probably the wisest of the Primarchs and I had no idea! Lots of revelations for me here. As always Jonathan Keeble does a great job narrating.

Fantastic!

A great look into the mentality of both the primarch and the legion. If you are not a White Scars fan, you will be one after listening to this book.

A forgotten Gem

We don’t really look at Khan and think this guy can be interesting. This book puts the khan in a very different light. Good listen and a grand story.

The Khan at last

Ever wonder about Jaghatai? His story? What drives him? This is the book that has done him great justice. I wish Vulcan had a book just as long (major Sallies fan) but it's a great edition worthy to be in my library!

If you don't know you soon will.

If you don't know who the white scars are, if you don't know who Jaghatai Khan is then this is the book for you.

The Khagen reigns supreme!

Great book! A very uplifting performance from the voice cast, the writing though is where this book shines. The author gives a primarch that has had little to no backstory a amazing bit of fleshing out. Jaghatai Khan is amazing in the hands of Chris Wraight. He exudes confidence and pure leadership. His men follow because he is everything they dream of. The Warhawk the spirit of Chogoris maybe the deadliest primarch of all.
