Now that the news of Horus's Treachery is in the open, a time of testing has come. Some Legions have already declared allegiance to the Warmaster, while the loyalty of the others lies firmly with the Emperor. As Horus deploys his forces, loyalist Astartes learn that the Wordbearers are sending a fleet to Ultramar, home of the Ultramarines. Unless they can intercept and destroy it, the Ultramarines may suffer a blow from which they will never recover. Battle for the Abyss continues the epic tale of the Horus Heresy, a galactic civil war that threatened to bring about the extinction of humanity.

This was also a good background to the Heresy. It shows how some of the space marines of the thousand sons (Mhotep) and the world eaters (skraal) were betrayed by their own legions. Their two stories were compelling. There was terrific heroism on both of their parts.
As I said in a review of Legion, for those who hated the last books, there is more to the Heresy then just Horus and the battle for Terra. It is a large story that needs a degree of patience to unfold and it will be rewarding.

The book was ok and idk why everyone saying that it had nothing to do with the Horus heresy because this was one of the battles Horus planned out before the battle for Terra. plus this takes place right after the book Fulgrim.
