Publisher's Summary

Imperium Secundus lies revealed as a heretical folly. Terra has not fallen, though it remains inaccessible. Sanguinius, Guilliman and the Lion El’Johnson, the primarchs of the Triumvirate, must reach Terra at all costs. They seek to defend the Emperor and to atone for their sins.

But the Ruinstorm, a galaxy-wide maelstrom of chaos, hides the Throneworld from the primarchs. Now the fleets of three Legions depart Macragge, and the primarchs will stop at nothing to overcome the Ruinstorm. Yet an insidious enemy watches their every move, and plots against the weaknesses of the errant sons of the Emperor. Each has his own inner storm, and each marches towards his own ruin.

Unmissable Action and Advancement

Imperium Secundus is over. The Triumvirate forges ahead in an attempt to reach Terra. The trials are unforseen, unexpected and beyond imagination. The Avenging Son, The Lion and The Angel all face their own tests and challenges brought by Chaos. All narrated by Keeble at his best! Can't miss this one!

The worst Horus Heresy Novel

This novel is a contraindication as it feels bloated as it repeats itself over and over and yet is one of the shortest in the HH series. If the author was struggling with the length maybe he should have written a second draft or at least written a B storyline

A forgettable Odyssey

A somewhat stumbling journey of three Primarchs banging into daemonic obstacles over and over till a final battle.

A couple of good moments, and some decent fluff reveals for Blood Angels fans, but the story was pretty dull IMO. A story with three Primarchs and it was lacking character and excitement.

If you enjoy the random "Its the warp, this is crazy but go with it" over and over that the HH series seems to love lately, you might enjoy it more than me.

Solid book.

The story is a little complex and some what cluttered. It does have some strong sections that are enjoyable. it is worth the time if you are fans of Blood Angels and Dark Angels.

Space Adventure, slash, pew, slash!

Very good, didn’t expect to love it so much. When the trio of Primarchs make it to the giant space castle, oh my. Also, I’m glad that I listened to Damnation at Pythos, I always wondered what was gonna happen with that.

Wait for it...

Pros:
- Snaguinius’ storyline
- Annendale’s absolutely stunning descriptions
- The last hour

Cons:
- The plot leading up to the last hour has the subtlety of a brick
- The Lion and the Avenging Son are both very much out of character

I want to like this book, and I like the end very much. However, the path to that end is full of poorly plotted mishmash where primarchs make nonsensical decisions and chaos is just lazy. I love Annendale’s work, this is not even close to his best.

On to Terra...

This in my opinion one of the best books leading up to the siege. The voice acting is differential so you know who is talking. It truly shine not in the voice used per say bit in the delivery of the lines in my opinion. Worth a read and a must have for your Heresy collection.

Sanguinius is a chad

Almost anything with Sanguinius in it is 10/10. I’m also a huge fan of when primarchs are constantly interacting with each other it’s the highlight of the Horus heresy and this book has plenty of both in it.

Damnation of Pythos 2: Electric Boogaloo.

I honestly don't know who approved this but they want to to be shot. I honestly can say this is the most boring book in the entire series. It's so slow. I get that weapons have names but He sounds like a kid trying to pad a word count by the amount of times he puts "the blade encarmine" etc It's unnecessary.

Awful Story

This is a typical Annandale story, the characters HAVE no character and the story is incredibly boring, I have this as a book and was so fed up reading it I got the audio book and it STILL bores me to tears 😂

Sentence after sentence of hyperbole.

Whilst the overall story of the book was good and tied some loose ends up, the execution was very poor. Every line was over the top, so when it got to some climaxes I was underwhelmed. the author forgets that less is more, and that the characters make the books compelling. the narrator was fantastic yet again. Final plot view without spoilers: the end with Kurze didn't make sense from a military standpoint even with the emphasis on fate.

Honestly found it quite boring and not gripping.

Struggled with this book. I love the Horus Heresy Series but this one is my least favourite, feeling like its just pushing action down your throat for no reason other than action. I think it's the pacing I have issue with.

An overblown mess

This novel should have been a novella at best. The author seemed to have an ending but had no solid story to get there. The language is a hyperbolic mess and it is full of set pieces that are so ridiculous in their scale that they lose any meaning as they vie to trump each other again and again.

I’m glad I can return the book and get my credit back because this novel is a chore that adds nothing of real worth to the series.
The voice actor does his best but I’d never listen to this bloated mess ever again.
