Publisher's Summary

The Shadow Crusade has begun. While the Ultramarines reel from Kor Phaeron's surprise attack on Calth, Lorgar and the rest of the Word Bearers strike deep into the realm of Ultramar.

Their unlikely allies, Angron and the World Eaters, continue to ravage each new system they come across - upon the garrison planet of Armatura, this relentless savagery may finally prove to be their undoing. Worlds will burn, Legions will clash and a primarch will fall.

Excellent

The story stands up there with the best in the series. narration is good. Would have loved some auto tune or something on the dreadnought voices though. I really am developing a bad habit of listening to these too quickly though.

Eye Opening

This book was the 1st I read that priced into the heart of the World Eater's Primarch, and what a eye opening insight it gave. I never thought I'd agree with Angron.

Incredible that’s all I can say

The relationships and the character building in this book was amazing. I would actually like to go back for another listen soon simply to catch everything I could of possibly missed.

Angron the Oathbreaker, Angron the Betrayer!

Cannot recommend this Horus Heresy novel enough, ADB is fantastic in his writings as always and the amped up level of comedy alone makes this a great novel in its own right not just one of the best in the series. Jonathan Keeble also really sells the characters to a point of near realism. Like First Heretic Lorgar is a greatly interesting character usually keeping his machinations close to the chest, his obsession with truth(however ugly) leaves him a semi relatable demigod in good contrast to Angrons depravity from The Butchers Nails. Angron is simply amazing, wont even describe because everything about him is central to the plot and Lorgars plans of both brotherly love and supreme conquest. This is an absolute must for those plowing through the series and easily rivals ADBs near perfectly executed Night Lords trilogy.

The Final Duel is Catharsis of the Best Kind

ADB again does a magnificent job of making the traitors nuanced and complex. Argel Tal and Kharn have a true friendship.

Brotherly Loyalty

I came away from the story not caring much about Angron but the author does a good job of helping the reader to understand him more and empathize with him and his scarred legion. Lorgar’s presence throughout provides a lot of clarity to the bigger picture. The story has great action sequences but also solid dialogue and character development. At its heart this story is clearly one of brotherly loyalty and although Lorgar, Angron and their legions are on a bloody genocidal rampage through Ultramar (with a purpose to be revealed at the end) their brotherly bond still leaves much to be admired. The theme is also strong between Kharn and Argel Taal, etc. Solid narrating. Solid action. Solid characters. And just a great and intriguing story. Definitely recommend.

Five Skulls for the Blood God

Angron alone makes this a must read. If you wanna dive into how the World Eaters wage war, pick this up. If you want to hear lines like "bring me 300 skulls, and build me a throne" pick this up. Blood for the Blood God, then pick this up.

too lopsided

struggled to finish this one. without letting out any spoilers it felt like a giant loyalist snuff story. the ease at which at which the opposing side is killed is just annoying but the ending makes it worthwhile I guess.

Brotherhood and betrayal

ADB has crafted an amazing story that pairs the World Eaters and Word bearers in a way that you never thought you'd be interested in. The author has an amazing talent when it comes to writing about his characters, you sympathize even as they do the unthinkable and deplorable. The ending will leave you stunned and heartbroken, something you couldn't think possible in a story where there main characters are 8 foot tall genetically engineered superhumans created to slaughter. My favorite book in the series by far.

Mental Illness, Love and chainaxes.

A book about depression and love, dressed up as a 40k novel. Brilliant stuff, ADB is the best Black Library author by a country mile.

Wonderful

The books in the Word Bearers/Ultramarines storyline always seem to be a cut above, and Betrayer continues that trend.

The author again does an excellent job with Lorgar and his sons, and the narrator is fantastic - I wish GW had gotten Jonathan Keeble to do First Heretic.

Glorious!

A grand story, intense, tragic, heroic. The characters are artfully molded and given life with their own personalities, views and beliefs. Love me a tale about Warhammer^^
