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.

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.

Great stuff

Awesome story, man do I hate Erebus. Love the series because you can empathize with the different sides and can get a more complete picture of the different perspectives and motivations.

Great stuff! i thought i was gonna dislike it.

But the story about Khan and Argel Tal was amazing, there is more to theese legions than meets the eye. This book was great at depicting the World Eaters and Word Bearers in a more "humane" way than just butchers and sadists...it was more about honor, brotherhood and loyalty.
It was also greatly narrated.

Amazing

The best horus heresy book I have read and one of the best ADB books around. The ability to humanize Angron and the insanity committed by the villains in this story is top notch. Jonathan keeble gives a great performance as ever

Best book the Heresy series

This is one of the better books in black library and the Horus Heresy series. The story is well paced, the action is good. it provides a lot of insight into some key characters in the HH. The narrator is great as well, excellent performance.

Angron the Oathbreaker, Angron the Betrayer!

Cannot recommend this Horus Heresy novel enough, ADB is fantastic in his writings as always and the amped up level of comedy alone makes this a great novel in its own right not just one of the best in the series. Jonathan Keeble also really sells the characters to a point of near realism. Like First Heretic Lorgar is a greatly interesting character usually keeping his machinations close to the chest, his obsession with truth(however ugly) leaves him a semi relatable demigod in good contrast to Angrons depravity from The Butchers Nails. Angron is simply amazing, wont even describe because everything about him is central to the plot and Lorgars plans of both brotherly love and supreme conquest. This is an absolute must for those plowing through the series and easily rivals ADBs near perfectly executed Night Lords trilogy.

Skulls for skull throne! A must listen.

An action packed thrilling story that won't let you press pause. Has everything you want from a Warhammer 40K story. I couldn't recommend it anymore. Also a brilliant performance from the reader, he really brings it to life.

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.
