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.

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.

truly excellent mix of stories.

my favorite was the one that shows the veteran terran Dark Angels vs the new prideful Caliban born ones and the friction when they make contact with what is essentially 20th century earth, UN and all. they poke fun at the uselessness of this UN😂

Good short stories

The Sisters of Silence story was good but the last two were great. Revelation, 2nd to last, ended different than I expected but you need to hear it if you are a 40k or HH fan. I was so sure he would convert.

Angron's tale was perfect for someone like me who knew little about him or the World Eaters. I was sure Khan would die. A great tale to end the Anthology.

The Space Wolves story was so sad I had to take a break.

I wish most of these were full novels.

Last 2 stories ate pure gold

Good book all round with good performances. The last 2 stories however are at a next level, giving insight in the emperor and his view on religion as well as the origin of the world eaters.

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.

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.

The short stories format well suits the style of the series and lets lots of ground be covered quickly and efficiently in what is already a long anthology

Gives character to the Heresy.

Enjoyable snacks of heresy. Not nesessary to read but gives the heresy some colour. Tales ranged from decent to exiting.

EPIC

excellent stories, erotic almost, my warhammer hardon was strong with these short stories. I enjoy the bundles like this book rather than buying separately

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.
