Fantastic

Great Book, narrated masterfully. As a science fiction lover I have high standards, this has met them in most areas and surpassed them in a few others.

The Music in-between parts of the book is way too

The Music in-between parts of the book is way too loud, had to take off head phones at parts of the audio book because of this.

Really good read/listen. Highly recommend, especially if you like the 30k/40k lore. Had me on the edge of my seat the whole time.

Slow start but solid drama at end

After listening to an excellent book 1 and a very decent book 2, I initially struggled with the third book as the author's power of description was less compelling for me, little dialogue or drama. This was a shame as I had gotten to like the central characters and the dilemmas they had been facing but the book significantly improves after the first half dozen chapters.

Another month to find out more, really?

Lacks for some meaningful dialogue; perhaps some "where did it all go wrong?" philosophising between the loyalists, something that would make the protagonists - into whom we have invested over twenty-four hours - more human, and thus their murders more tragic.

Third book in a gripping series

I am now into my third book in the series all have been well written and well presented. The only reason I have not given five stars is the length of the books at around 8 hours this is not great value for money. I have smashed all my credits in 3 weeks.

Another brilliant instalment.

Betrayal, gripping dialogue, brilliant imagery through brilliant narration and great plot to keep the story of the Horus Heresy moving forward. Three books in now and I can't get enough of this series!

Good listening.

I thought this book to be weaker in terms of writing than the previous two in the series but still a good story and great narration.

Narration is first class

This book is a great example of Gritty SciFi set in the Warhammer universe. A “conclusion” to the arc started in Horus Rising.

Tony Longworth’s narration is brilliant and helps lift the text into audio art.

Another great book

This is an other great book in the series. the narration is spot on. the story keeps you engaged the whole way through. it builds up a familiarity with the characters and you start to care about what happens to them. the only down side I would saves the huge volume increase with the music at the start of chapters when wearing head phones.

Carnage of Betrayal

Saddening downwards spiral of brothers betraying one another, and the realization of everything the characters know being turned against them. Beautiful proformance by Toby Longworth from start to finish, realizing the true emotion of each of the characters.

Shorter then the others, but still good.

My only real criticism is that it's several chapters shorter then the previous books, but despite that it was awesome.
