Publisher's Summary

Unaware of the wider Heresy and following the Warmaster's increasingly cryptic orders, Roboute Guilliman returns to Ultramar to muster his Legion for war against the orks massing in the Veridian system.

Without warning, their supposed allies in the Word Bearers Legion launch a devastating invasion of Calth, scattering the Ultramarines fleet and slaughtering all who stand in their way. This confirms the worst scenario Guilliman can imagine - Lorgar means to settle their bitter rivalry once and for all. As the traitors summon foul daemonic hosts and all the forces of Chaos, the Ultramarines are drawn into a grim and deadly struggle in which neither side can prevail.

Incredible.

Truly incredible. A must have. The narrator was very good and certainly helped bring the intense atmosphere to life. A great story to listen to as an audio book from start to finish. Highly recommend.

Great.

I recommend reading/listening to this after First Heretic, which is also really good. As it adds just enough context to Lorgar and the Word Bearers to appreciate what's happening.

I love how the tone of the story changes as things become more chaotic.
It's a little difficult to follow some characters as it jumps around a bit. But it's got a lot going on, condensed into It's chapters that make it worth a go.

Great tell of betrayal and confusion.

I'll keep it short. I love Dan abnett. he's probably my favorite 40k author. he sometimes describes things too much though and I found myself lost once in a while with this book. but still a super story

Lots of action, great narration

Narrator was exceptional, he performed lots of distinctive voices for each character. The story had a nonstop pace and was full of action. I always enjoy the Roboute Guilliman and Oll Persons characters.

Best Horus heresy yet.

I loved this book and won’t bore the review reader with specifics. Though it starts slowly there is a constant slide as the enemy of mankind sets nefarious plans in motion. By the middle of the book, Dan Abnett assails the reader with some of the thickest action and fighting ever written for black library. A story filled with heroic deeds and fantastic character portraits that faithfully depict the ultramarines lowest and highest moments in turn. A great listen.

A Great Story of Betrayal.

This is a great WH book. Telling the tale of the betrayal on Calth It is like the assassination of Julius Caesar, 911 and Pearl Harbour rolled into one great betrayal that shatters the galaxy. I enjoyed the cinematic progression and present tense reading. Awesome book!

one of the good ones in this arch

I wanted the book to keep going. the ending to the story felt like when the Japanese attacked pearl harbor but then left after they had such an overwhelming victory. It makes no sense. oh well guess that's the nature of chaos.

Basically Dirty Dozen set in Warhammer 30k

pretty good listen. Best description is it's The Dirty Dozen. well worth the time. I enjoyed it. doesn't really have any bearing on anything major. nice look into inter chapter relationships.

Must read/listen

One of the top 5 HH stories to read. You could argue this is another, great "Beginning" of the HH novels as it's the starting point of the Ultramarines induction into the war. Brilliant pacing, great climax, and awesome ending.

So I’ve done a lot of miles over the past week and having this to listen to in the car has been awesome. It’s a truly epic rendition of a fantastic story and I have been left thoroughly pleased with it all. Great stuff.

A different take to all the other books before but if you can stick it through the first 1/3 of the book it really picks up pace and is well worth it

Goose pimples after first 2 chapters

Understand building story which early chapters did, but 20% to much detail in early chap, but a really good read in the series, glad i stuck with it , any other author i may have given up.
So to others, stick with it, definitely worth it.
