Publisher's Summary

Siege of Terra, Book 2

The Solar War is over. The Siege of Terra has begun. As the Traitors unleash their deadliest weapons, the defenders of the Throneworld face nightmare and plague - but Terra must stand.   

Read it because: discover the lengths to which Horus will go to claim Terra as his own - and the horrors he is willing to set upon its defenders.  

The story: on the 13th day of Secundus, the bombardment of Terra began. With the solar defences overcome through the devastating strength of the Traitor armada and the power of the warp, Horus launches his assault on the Throneworld in earnest. After withstanding a ferocious barrage of ordnance, an immense ground war commences outside the Palace, with every inch gained paid for in the lives of billions. The front lines are beyond horrific, and the very air is reduced to poison and blood. Bodies are thrown into the meat grinder, but the outer redoubts cannot possibly hold for long, even with the loyal primarchs to reinforce them. 

For Horus has his own generals to call upon. Between the plague weapons of Mortarion and the fury of Angron, the defenders face a losing battle.  

Written by Guy Haley. Narrated by Jonathan Keeble.

Not quite enough.

While this story follows interesting characters that hook me in well enough, it seems to meander around mysteriously without actually doing anything. I'm intrigued, but through the whole novel I feel like I'm waiting for something that happen that never does. It feels like Guy Haley was writing one big book and an editor cut it in half and gave us this little one.

The ending is unsatisfying in that it is clearly setting up a sequel that we all knew was coming but I feel that that's no reason to leave every question unresolved in -this- book.

That said, it's got good characters to follow and does a decent job of describing the boring parts of a siege in an interesting way that includes the science fiction elements without breaking immersion. As an audio medium, Jonathan Keeble does an admirable job putting a different nuance on each character.

No cracks in this wall

written well and another grand performance. Guy Haley defiantly captured to essence of the legions and Primarchs with his writing style. Jonathan Keeble continues to bring his artistry to bringing the characters and setting to life. a true one man show of voices.
a great audiobook.

One star for a missing chapter

Seriously, is it that hard to check and make sure it’s done right? I’ll change the rating when it’s fixed.

Missing chapter 16

The story and performance are great, but it's missing chapter 16. In its place, it just plays chapter 17 twice. I've submitted a support ticket, but you should probably skip it until it's fixed.

Ongoing war

The second book of the siege of Terra was better than the last in my opinion. Action with no flashbacks to possibly confuse readers, I thoroughly enjoyed the interactions of Horus and his brothers as well as the POV of primarchs, space marines, normal humans, etc. Once I heard Angron talking, I was reminded of the Decepticons and I couldn't un-hear it. It brought a touch of humor to his parts which were macabre (understandable because you know...Angron.) I'd recommend this book for sure.

Never judge a book by its cover.

The cover art on this book is fantastic. Kind of set you up for a massive letdown.

Typical Black Library

You’d never know that space marines were superhuman amazing warriors with how badly written they are.
Black library writers need some understanding of war, small unit tactics and both armed and unarmed combat before they try and write about it

Exceptional

One of the best entries in the Horus Heresy and I imagine will prove to be one of the best in the final Siege of Terra run. So many iconic moments - the overwhelmed human conscripts desperately clinging to life, the Primarch in-fighting on both sides with an absent father who's presence is still a incredible weight, the nefarious plans of the Alpha Legion still at large, and D E M O N S!

As ever J.Keeble delivers an amazing story with incredible talent.
One issue, it misses chapter 16 and gives us 17 twice! WTH?

Great second chapter to the siege!

For people who thought Solar war didn't have enough bolter porn action have no worries here with Lost and the Damned, it goes through great lengths to give you a picture of just how monumental the scale of the fight is and at the same time it's still very clearly just the start with many characters and threads being left for the future books.

I knocked off a star because fo some reason there's a technical glitch with chapter 17 being repeated and thus the book not being as long as my app says it is. Should probably get that looked at.

they stretched it again

i guess there will be a couple of more books till Sanquinius makes a dent in Horusis armor... a total skipp. You dont learn anything new and revealing. The most intrresting story is the one of Skraivok... its starting to turn into a disney star wars. i dont get how anyone can give it 5 stars.

A great sequel to the Solar War. The Warmasters hordes at last set foot on Terra and the epic struggle continues. A superb story which is enhanced by another stellar narration by Jonathan Keeble.

slow burn that really comes together

worth it for the raldoron vs skraivok sass alone, but it's fascinating to see the siege from the viewpoint of a lowly conscript, a spy, a primarch, besiegers and besieged all at once.
