A mixed bag of stories

While there are some gems in this collection, a few feel more like fillers. However, there is more than enough to keep the avid HH fans happy.

The best compilation of Horus Heresy short stories

I simply could not get enough of these excellently written and narrated short stories. As soon as I finished I just wanted to press play again. Definitely cannot go wrong with purchasing this audiobook.

A great collection

I genuinely enjoyed this audiobook. Usually short story collections can be a bit eh and some can be not very important... Boring... Covers nothing.. This one however is not the case. Very good collection, definitely well worth it.

A Horus Heresy series anthology

There were a couple of short stories in this collection that I enjoyed very much, a couple of good stories, and a couple that just seemed to miss the mark for me. Prince of Crows was my favorite story in the anthology. It was also nice to have The Lightning Tower and The Dark King collected here. There are some elements in the stories that seem at times ambiguous and at other times to contradict or confuse the overall timeline of the series. Overall, the stories are still enjoyable. This anthology does seem to have a heavy leaning toward the Imperial Fists and Night Lords but the Raven Guard and Iron Warriors make respectable contributions in the stories. Most of these stories tie into other events and are almost background information for arcs appearing in many of the full novels. My least liked story was The Kaban Project which is an Adeptus Mechanicus story which ties into the novel Mechanicum.

good, but....

The cover is a little bit of a bait and switch since there's only one Jonathan keeble narrated book and it's the very very last 1.

Bits and pieces

As usual, not a great fan of the shorter stories, since they usually open up more questions than they answer, but of all the short novels so far in the series, this one is the best of them. Some are very short, so if you struggle with these collections, save them for last.

Great collection.

A thoroghly enjoyable listen, though I skipped Gav's story, the man can't write a believable plot, hence the 4 stars for story. Especially the last story about Sevatar from the Night Lords was great and sometimes hilarious.

John Banks is awful as a narrator.

Which is a shame, his uninspired, droning voice ruins some great stories. Seeing his name will always make me refrain from purchasing an audio book from now on.

Some essential HH reading

The Crimsom Fist is the only depiction of the Battle of Phall, and The Prince of Crows is the closest you'll get to a depiction of the Thramas Crusade. And they are both good, good enough alone to give this a listen. And then you get a few short stories on top of that.

Good stories all

Generally i don’t like the short storys compared to the longer books but all of these where great and connected well to not only eachother in a way but also to some of the earlier books in the series but not far off. So the give a some extra meat on the bones for the books you’ve just read/listned to if you’re like plowing through this series!

love Prince of crows

While I do prefer the version of the Dark King featuring Danny Webb, the rest of this audio is impeccable. Well written, good performance and excellent stories make this a compelling addition to any 40k reader.

diamond in thehe rough

I am not a fan of the short story collections after all they are just fillers that answer a few questions but don't make any headway in the saga. However this book is worth it a thousand times over for The prince of crows which introduces my new favourite character Sevitas. excellent story with rye humour superbly performed absolutely loved it.
