Publisher's Summary

With news of Horus' treachery spreading across the galaxy, the Great Crusade grinds to a halt as the primarchs and their Legions decide where their loyalty lies - with the Emperor or with the rebel Warmaster.

The Dark Angels, too, face a time of testing, both among the stars and on their home world, Caliban. Luther, once Lion El'Jonson's trusted second-in-command, now languishes as an exile in all but name while his master struggles to thwart the traitors' advance upon the forge world Diamat. But an ancient evil gathers its strength beneath the surface of Caliban, and the First Legion will soon be thrust into a deadly conflict where all that they know will be cast into doubt.

A lot better than I had expected.

So, before I started reading this one, I had heard a lot of people saying it was one of the weaker horus heresy books, and so I went in with it with some strong reservations... I have to say though, it really was not one of the weaker ones.
There are multiple parts in the book that are completely fresh, ideas and themes and action that had previously not been seen in the heresy, and quite simply, I really enjoyed it.

Its good

This was a better Dark Angels book than the Decent of Angels. Unfortunately it leaves you hanging but in a good spot to help build suspense.

Another good Dark Angel HH novel. Half the book about Lion El Johnson and half about Luther.

Needs more Horus in these novels but still good.

The lion

Read very well, great performance. The story was hard to follow at times and ended with me on the edge of of my seat, the apprehension for what's next is great!

Laborious reading

The narration was very good but the story should have a been typical BL short story, at most a novella, the story meandered and dragged and if wasn’t for the narrator being good I would have stopped listening

Lore rich

have always enjoyed tales of the dark Angel's and learning upon their dark secret in such a detailed way is thoroughly enjoyable.

looking forward to the next book already.

Uninspired, like Descent of Angels

Writing is uninteresting with little that surprises, performance is thoroughly unconvincing, still very confused why the narrator seems to refuse to speak loudly, anytime there is the direction 'he shouted' he instead does a strange hoarse whisper. Didnt enjoy nearly as much as other Heresy novels.

By far one of the best in the series. The joint story lends itself well to the narrative

Essential Dark Angel Material

For anyone with even the smallest interest in the Dark Angels split from Luthor this is a must. Nicely tied to the Heresy too. Epilogue is worth waiting for!

Unexpected Second Coming

I remember being left a little wanting by the first Dark Angels entry, now I’m pleasantly surprised by the evolution of their tale.

We get boots on the ground for near enough all that old guard, the greater conflict rolls on and the mysteries roll out.

I'm probably being a little generous with my stars, there’s still some convolution to wade through but the flavour holds true.

A let down

I really wanted to like this Audiobook as much as I like the Dark Angels and their lore. However it is poorly written. Unlike many other novels in the HH series, this was boring and predictable. Time and again I found myself cursing in frustration over repeated poor dialogue and storyline. The narration didn't help either. Two of the main veteran space marines sounded like scared, timied little school boys always out of their depth. It could have been great... in the hands of another author and narrator. So disappointed.

Cold Blooded

I lost count of the times a character’s blood “went cold”, or got a cold shiver down their spine.

Not bad overall, but could have been half the length.
