Description

Siege of Terra, Book 2

The Solar War is over. The Siege of Terra has begun. As the Traitors unleash their deadliest weapons, the defenders of the Throneworld face nightmare and plague - but Terra must stand.   

Read it because: discover the lengths to which Horus will go to claim Terra as his own - and the horrors he is willing to set upon its defenders.  

The story: on the 13th day of Secundus, the bombardment of Terra began. With the solar defences overcome through the devastating strength of the Traitor armada and the power of the warp, Horus launches his assault on the Throneworld in earnest. After withstanding a ferocious barrage of ordnance, an immense ground war commences outside the Palace, with every inch gained paid for in the lives of billions. The front lines are beyond horrific, and the very air is reduced to poison and blood. Bodies are thrown into the meat grinder, but the outer redoubts cannot possibly hold for long, even with the loyal primarchs to reinforce them. 

For Horus has his own generals to call upon. Between the plague weapons of Mortarion and the fury of Angron, the defenders face a losing battle.  

Written by Guy Haley. Narrated by Jonathan Keeble.

"Top pick" series

I would highly recommend the "siege of terra" series to any fan of Warhammer 40k or "The Horus Heresy" Johnathon Keeble does a great job narrating this marvel

Missing chapter 16

Chapter 17 is repeated? It’s missing chapter 16, story is great but I say fire the guy in charge of proof listening this audio book.

One star for a missing chapter

Seriously, is it that hard to check and make sure it’s done right? I’ll change the rating when it’s fixed.

Missing chapter 16

The story and performance are great, but it's missing chapter 16. In its place, it just plays chapter 17 twice. I've submitted a support ticket, but you should probably skip it until it's fixed.

Ongoing war

The second book of the siege of Terra was better than the last in my opinion. Action with no flashbacks to possibly confuse readers, I thoroughly enjoyed the interactions of Horus and his brothers as well as the POV of primarchs, space marines, normal humans, etc. Once I heard Angron talking, I was reminded of the Decepticons and I couldn't un-hear it. It brought a touch of humor to his parts which were macabre (understandable because you know...Angron.) I'd recommend this book for sure.

Why three stories?

Not sure why BL is trying to turn every novel into the last 15 minutes of Phantom Menace with 3+ stories going and none of them done well, but it's a trend and it's time to stop.

There are interesting parts, but besides the Primarchs no one gets developed properly. It's not that they're not distinct or they're not developed enough, it's just that every scene is separated with the next scene from a different story and it's almost entirely unnecessary to do it.

Just present a book with three shorter stories. If the timelines need to coincide, use a chronological landmark.

Typical Black Library

You’d never know that space marines were superhuman amazing warriors with how badly written they are.
Black library writers need some understanding of war, small unit tactics and both armed and unarmed combat before they try and write about it

Great Book, Great Read

awesome book really enjoyed reading it. you get a really good idea of everything that's going on in the siege of terra near the palace. Jonathan Keeble does another excellent job narrating the story from beginning to end, a real superb job.

primarchs for the win

primarch action is always appreciated. Here you see Sanguinus and Jahatai clash vs the forces of chaos, and you get the first taste of how epic and rough things will be in the future books. Also, the Angron mini arc is hilarious.
