Publisher's Summary

As the Horus Heresy divides the Imperium, Corax and his few remaining Raven Guard escape the massacre at Isstvan V. Tending to their wounds, the bloodied Space Marines endeavour to replenish their numbers and return to the fray, taking the fight to the traitor Warmaster.

Distraught at the crippling blow dealt to his Legion, Corax returns to Terra to seek the aid of his father - the Emperor of Mankind. Granted access to ancient secrets, Corax begins to rebuild the Raven Guard, planning his revenge against his treacherous brother primarchs. But not all his remaining warriors are who they appear to be.

The mysterious Alpha Legion have infiltrated the survivors and plan to destroy the Raven Guard before they can rebuild and threaten Horus's plans.

Great listen

Thoroughly enjoyed Deliverence Lost. Gareth Armstrong was great as always. The Alpha Legion are a favorite. Gav brings a perfect balance of intrigue and action to the story. A favorite in the Horus Heresy so far.

Walked in optimistic, walked out disappointed.

This is the 3rd 40k audiobook I've listened to and it's easily the most...middle ground(?) of the bunch. It isn't terrible by any means, but it does genuinely feel dull. I had little understanding of what the Raven Guard are about before reading this and was hoping this book would shed some light on their ideals, morals, standing after Istvan and how Corax deals with their loses. Unfortunately, after the entire book, I still feel like I don't know much about the Raven Guard. I almost get the feeling the author wanted to write a book more about Alpha Legion than Raven Guard considering the main Alpha Legion character seems to always get what he wants and needs, up to a point. Again, this book isn't terrible but I was a little disappointed in it. Corvus just feels bland and the entire Raven Guard feels bland as well. I'd recommend it just for the story threads this book goes into but if you're intending on learning more about Raven Guard, I'd pass.

Spy vs spy

I was wondering when the ravenguard and alphas were gonna go toe to toe (in a manner of speaking). Awesome story as always. Great narration. Two thumbs up.

exceptional book for the Horus heresy series

this book was well-written and the storyline was thoroughly thought-through before being placed down in pain. overlapping stories Espionage and secrecy was great. Had me guessing who is who and there's several surprises at the end that I did not see coming. Very good book, well written all around

Quote the Raven

It is a good story allowing one to understand where the Ravenguard came from and how they are during the heresy.
