Publisher's Summary

The Shadow Crusade has begun. While the Ultramarines reel from Kor Phaeron's surprise attack on Calth, Lorgar and the rest of the Word Bearers strike deep into the realm of Ultramar.

Their unlikely allies, Angron and the World Eaters, continue to ravage each new system they come across - upon the garrison planet of Armatura, this relentless savagery may finally prove to be their undoing. Worlds will burn, Legions will clash and a primarch will fall.

Wonderful

The books in the Word Bearers/Ultramarines storyline always seem to be a cut above, and Betrayer continues that trend.

The author again does an excellent job with Lorgar and his sons, and the narrator is fantastic - I wish GW had gotten Jonathan Keeble to do First Heretic.

Glorious!

A grand story, intense, tragic, heroic. The characters are artfully molded and given life with their own personalities, views and beliefs. Love me a tale about Warhammer^^

Excellent

The story stands up there with the best in the series. narration is good. Would have loved some auto tune or something on the dreadnought voices though. I really am developing a bad habit of listening to these too quickly though.

Incredible that’s all I can say

The relationships and the character building in this book was amazing. I would actually like to go back for another listen soon simply to catch everything I could of possibly missed.

Best Book of the Horus Heresy Series, Bar None

Absolutely fantastic writing and performance. ADB and Keeble continue to show why they are the dominant duo in the Black Library collection.

Absolutely terrific!

The deept of characters that Aron is able to portray are simply fantastic. The brotherhood among the XIIth Legion is an interesting and appealing part of the Eaters of Worlds that had yet to be shown. Yet the faults of the Word Bearers are overwhelming, with Erebus and Logar remaining the greatest trash bags of all time.

Eye Opening

This book was the 1st I read that priced into the heart of the World Eater's Primarch, and what a eye opening insight it gave. I never thought I'd agree with Angron.

Excellent look into the World Eaters and Angron.

A great look at Angron and his band of warriors. A tragic tale to be sure.

Great first book to listen to on audible

Great story from a great writer, if you know a lot about the lore you know where it ends but the journey is well worth it and the subversion of the title was a good twist.
