Publisher's Summary

A Horus Heresy audiobook anthology

When Horus rebelled against the Emperor, the ensuing civil war nearly destroyed the Imperium. War raged across galaxy, resulting in a struggle where death was the only victor.

Listen to it because:

Events from the Great Crusade and the early days of the Heresy are explored in a series of short stories covering the Space Wolves, Word Bearers, World Eaters, Dark Angels, Sisters of Silence, Custodian Guard...and the Emperor himself in a unique tale that will you have questioning all your assumptions about the Master of Mankind.

When Horus the Warmaster rebelled against the Emperor, the ensuing civil war nearly destroyed the Imperium. War raged across galaxy, pitting Astartes against their battle-brothers in a struggle where death was the only victor. But long before that, the Legions struggled with their identities and the demands of the Great Crusade. From battles with alien invaders to conflicts within a Legion, and even dealing with a wayward primarch, these stories show the battles fought as the Great Crusade draws to a close and the Horus Heresy begins....

Not worth an Audible Credit

Gareth Armstrong, Toby Longworth and Jonathan Keeble should be the only narrator's used by the Black Library. everyone else? Not a fan. The stories were, in my opinion not the best in the Horus Heresy series.

Amazing 40K stories!

Loved it. Easily the best book of the Horus Heresy so far. Something about the short story format really allows the grimdark future of the 40K universe to shine and come through. I may have favorite characters from previous books but these are my favorite stories so far.

truly excellent mix of stories.

my favorite was the one that shows the veteran terran Dark Angels vs the new prideful Caliban born ones and the friction when they make contact with what is essentially 20th century earth, UN and all. they poke fun at the uselessness of this UN😂

Good short stories

The Sisters of Silence story was good but the last two were great. Revelation, 2nd to last, ended different than I expected but you need to hear it if you are a 40k or HH fan. I was so sure he would convert.

Angron's tale was perfect for someone like me who knew little about him or the World Eaters. I was sure Khan would die. A great tale to end the Anthology.

The Space Wolves story was so sad I had to take a break.

I wish most of these were full novels.

Last 2 stories ate pure gold

Good book all round with good performances. The last 2 stories however are at a next level, giving insight in the emperor and his view on religion as well as the origin of the world eaters.

Great collection of Stories

This was something I felt the Horus Heresy series sorely needed. Small side stories to help expand the true scale of this massive event. Seeing how Horus' betrail shook the very foundations of the galaxy.

a pack of decent stories

I tried to read the phsyical book of this particular entry in the series once before but I was never drawn in as I thought I would have been. Listening to them now, however, I was drawn in the no more than 3 no less than 2 of the 8 stories. they all had something to offer, but the ones I ended up enjoying were the stories of woth characters I knew or were familiar with. With that being said, I did like 2 stories that had new characters in them that I hope I'll see in future installments. The only reason why I managed to finish this book in its entirety was because of the performances from the readers. A few of which I had never heard read personally before and I loved them.

overall: decent couple of side stories, i can see how the stories explain or coincide with the series but it felt like filler that I'll be glad to have read but not return to. Amazing performances though, especially in the last chapter.

Great little collection of short stories.

Really loved it. Great little collection. And for the first time a female narrator for the horus heresy at least. really gets you immersed in the story of the sisterhood. also by God I loved the wolf story so much I listen to it on repeat 3 times.

Good collection of stories

I like the books made up of short stories, although I wasn't that keen on one of them the rest more than made up for it.

Nice format

The short stories format well suits the style of the series and lets lots of ground be covered quickly and efficiently in what is already a long anthology
