Publisher's Summary

Terra stands upon the brink of Unity. The armies of the self-proclaimed Emperor of Mankind have waged their bloody wars to bring the whole planet under his rule, crushing all traces of outlawed religion and worship from the face of this now secular utopia.

But even the mighty Thunder Warriors cannot cow Uriah Olathaire, last priest of the Church of the Lightning Stone, as he goes about his empty, hollow rituals - and only one last and thoroughly unexpected visitor can bring any hope of a possible reconciliation.

Profound and Compelling

This is a wonderful reading of a superbly written book. A philosophical and intelligent examination of the morality and personality of the Emperor and the Imperium of Man.

Great insight to the mind of the Emperor...

This title was a great insight to the Emperor's purpose. The final unification of Terra before beginning the Great Crusade.

One of the best

The best Warhammer short story I’ve read/heard so far. Takes you back to the beginning of it all. Highly recommended.

An amazing story!

You do not need to know anything about Warhammer 40,000 or the Horus Heresy to enjoy this story. Like all good science fiction it has an underlying theme that is important to us today. It speaks of the centuries old debate of religion vs reason. McNeill expertly weaves a tale that is enthralling. A great story from a great author.

Fantastic

This was phenomenal narrative to listen to. Although the Horus Heresy series, and the larger Warhammer 40,000 universe, is known for its violence and well crafted war stories this story provides an insight for a different aspect the series I didn’t know we needed. Graham McNeill does not disappoint in this short but engaging novel which I would highly recommend.

Good book, awful interface.

I have nothing to say about the book insomuch as I have to say about my ability to play it. When I clicked to download my copy of the audio book, Audible shoves its garbage MP3 downloading software down my throat instead of just giving me an MP3, and what's worse is the piece of shovelware doesn't even work, I gave it all the necessary information to link it to my account & nothing. Good, now I'm forced to play it from my browser. At least when I buy music from Amazon they give me the option of a direct MP3 download when they're shoving their garbage media player your throat.

The book would've been certainly worth the money I paid for it if the service weren't broken & worthless.

be warned, one short story, only.

Look for Tales of Heresy, at it contains the other shorts in novel Length. This particular entry is just the one short story. It's a good short mind you, but no warning that it's the one short story unless you go looking for it.

The story of the Emperor continues

Another insightful look into the mysterious back story of the BIG E.

An entertaining tail of the last church before the commencement of the great crusade.

Another great performance from Johnathan Keeble and 90 minutes of lore and back story to one of the most mystifying characters in 40K.

Worth a listen.

Wow

Even though its a short story from the tales of heresy it is still one of my favourite books of the horus heresy, truly enjoyed it
