LET THE GALAXY BURN!!!!!!!

#Audible1 This book picks up where the second one left off with another change in authors. Ben Counter did a fine job in writing this story and is able to capture the personal drama of those loyalists struggling to survive in a fleet filled with traitors and agents of the Chaos entities. the book sets up a number of story arcs that will come to the forefront of the series several books later however it is this book that begins the divergence of many different tales that must be told. Toby Longworth is again at the narration helm and as always brings his dramatic presentation to bare giving to the story a sense of dramatic storytelling that few other narrators can. I found the book to be a very good listen. A must for those who wish to know what happened at Istivan 3

Predictable ending... but I don't care.

The thing that makes this book so great is (if you know the history of the heresy) it can only end in one way, but you've grown to love the characters so much that you still hold a futile hope that they will triumph.

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.

Heretics, loyalists, planetary bombardments, collosal warriors wielding chain axes. what more do you need to know?

The treachery unfolds...

Great voice acting, great narration and prose...

Treason is in the open. Brother will fight brothers.. oaths will be broken.. and ambitions will come into the light.

Volume balance

Balance the volume. The musical interludes are blaring compared to the narration.
Otherwise a great performance.

We are once again the Luna Wolves!

The great betrayal. A few suprises and some very memorable moments on Istvaan 3 give insight into the strength of the bonds of these brothers in arms. I found myself clenching my fist and quietly cheering on Garviel during the incidents on the ground.

loved it.
