The funniest 40K audiobook I’ve listened to. The author nailed the Orks, making them really enjoyable and fun yet menacing at the same time. My only complaint is when it takes you away from the Orks to give you the human perspective, which is really boring in comparison to the the Ork bits. The narrator deserves praise for their work with the Orks, sounded awesome. I can imagine doing that accent would be a strain!

Very enjoyable

One of the strongest Heresy Books I've listened to so far. It has some genuinely good payoffs towards the end as well as funny moments. Story lacked in some areas, but I enjoyed the fact there were no regular human characters, just marines and Primarchs.

The story is great. My only gripe was that the first quarter/half of the book felt like a rehash of themes from the first book, especially with regards to the 3rd Legion and people wanting to rebuild it. The plot points that lead up to the main thrust of the book felt identical to many in the first book. Once this story gets its unique plot points its great.

Gripping from start to end

As other have said, this story grips you at every moment and is probably one of the best paced of the Horus Heresy novels, if you are doing the whole series you cannot skip it!

Amazing

Great exploration of Unifcation era, really grips you and great characters, great insight into what the imperium is/was meant to be.
