Publisher's Summary

A Horus Heresy audiobook anthology

When Horus rebelled against the Emperor, the ensuing civil war nearly destroyed the Imperium. War raged across galaxy, resulting in a struggle where death was the only victor.

Events from the Great Crusade and the early days of the Heresy are explored in a series of short stories covering the Space Wolves, Word Bearers, World Eaters, Dark Angels, Sisters of Silence, Custodian Guard...and the Emperor himself in a unique tale that will you have questioning all your assumptions about the Master of Mankind.

When Horus the Warmaster rebelled against the Emperor, the ensuing civil war nearly destroyed the Imperium. War raged across galaxy, pitting Astartes against their battle-brothers in a struggle where death was the only victor. But long before that, the Legions struggled with their identities and the demands of the Great Crusade. From battles with alien invaders to conflicts within a Legion, and even dealing with a wayward primarch, these stories show the battles fought as the Great Crusade draws to a close and the Horus Heresy begins....

Not worth an Audible Credit

Gareth Armstrong, Toby Longworth and Jonathan Keeble should be the only narrator's used by the Black Library. everyone else? Not a fan. The stories were, in my opinion not the best in the Horus Heresy series.

Somewhat Regurgitating

Most of the lore insights had already been covered and some of the parts are really not worth the money.

Not unlike other HH collections

It makes sense that the short story collections vary in quality, but that isn't to say any of these particular stories are bad. A few are forgettable, but there are bits that really add to the larger story arc at play.

Great overall, varying quality

The First and Last stories are truly great. The story of Angron first meeting his legion and the hammering down of the idea that the anguish at the loss of his gladiator comrades and the denial of perishing with them is as much a source of his anger if not more, than the Butcher's nails implants. It brought me to tears. All the voice actors are great but Toby Longworth is in a league of is own.

fantastic book.

The last church, wolf at the door, and the world eater(i forget it's title) are just amazing. The other stories were good too, but those three were some of the best short stories from black library I heard.

good short stories

A great collection of multiple short stories that help bring the the larger picture of the story line into view. Filling gaps and back stories and keeping everything fresh.

Amazing 40K stories!

Loved it. Easily the best book of the Horus Heresy so far. Something about the short story format really allows the grimdark future of the 40K universe to shine and come through. I may have favorite characters from previous books but these are my favorite stories so far.

Great little collection of short stories.

Really loved it. Great little collection. And for the first time a female narrator for the horus heresy at least. really gets you immersed in the story of the sisterhood. also by God I loved the wolf story so much I listen to it on repeat 3 times.

Good collection of stories

I like the books made up of short stories, although I wasn't that keen on one of them the rest more than made up for it.

An excellent selection of short stories!

I really enjoyed every one of these short stories. However, I particularly enjoyed Blood Games, Wolf at the Door, The Last Church & After Desh'ea. There's such a wide and dynamic range of storytelling here which opened my eyes to a lot of how the early days of the Imperium, as well as the many sub divisions of administrations and chapters all work cogs within the greater Imperium of Man. I found this to be a nice little palette cleanser and semi-conclusion to the first 10 books of the Horus Heresy series and am eagerly loading up book 11 to carry on my journey into the Heresy. Highly recommended - especially for Space Wolves fans - Wolf at the Door is a must!

Interesting anthology.

The contents of this anthology are as follows; Blood Games by Dan Abnett Wolf at the Door by Mike Lee Scions of the Storm by Anthony Reynolds The Voice by James Swallow Call of the Lion by Gav Thorpe The Last Church by Graham McNeill After Desh'ea by Matthew Farrer A very interesting selection of stories, from various times of the Imperium. A couple I found to be weaker than others, but none were bad. It will come down to personal preference as to how the listener rates each tale. For the record, I think The Last Church was a wonderfully crafted story, and possibly my favourite. Very recommended for fans of 40k books.

A good mix of many

This was overall a great mix, with some minor bits here and there that in general does not fully live up to the quality of a full novel. Nothing horribly bad, but only due to stories being compressed and as such loose some of it's depth. Very digestible however due to shorter stories, so can be a good place for people to start.

One of the better anthology books

In my opinion this is a very good anthology of heresy tales, I have found previous ones to be hit or miss but I really enjoyed every tale in this book and the last church is superlative

Good short stories

Overall really good but the narrator for the first story has a bad habit of overextending the S at the end of words, not a major problem but it grated on my ears a little.

So much lore you need to know!

From Sisters of silence to space wolves, emperors children and world eaters. If you are looking for a book that has lore from the Horus Heresy that you want to know about, but haven't been able to find this is the book for you!

All 7 stories were good

I really enjoyed all the stories, of course some were better than others but none were boring for me. The shortest was roughly 1hr and the longest roughly 2hr45mins so none felt insubstantial or rushed. Every narrator did a wonderful job as always. This is a good anthology book to listen to.
