Publisher's Summary

A galaxy burns and brother turns on brother as the conflict brought about by a beloved son’s betrayal reaches its fateful end. The Warmaster Horus has triumphed. His massive fleet at last nears Terra and the patriarchal Throne of his hated father. Many have fallen to bring this moment about; their tales are the ashes upon which the Heresy was born and prospered. Others have played their own small parts, drops in an ocean of war and blood. 

None of it matters. 

Terra looks to the skies as it raises its defences. Armies muster, heroes raise their swords, citizens cower. The war is coming. And nothing can stop it.

Phenomenal

An absolutely phenomenal collection of short stories. The standard sense of dread is taken to 11, especially in the last story, as Horus approaches and faith in the emporer wanes. Haven't been this excited to start the next story since Horus Rising.

Great Book!

This one goes quick! "The Board is Set" was AMAZING! Jonathan Keeble is hands down one of the best narrators for GW and the Black Library, matched only by Gareth Armstrong in my opinion. This one will not disappoint you. This one creates the sense in the listener that a great and Epic story is coming to a close. What ever will we do when the Horus Heresy series ends? 🤔

Amazing short stories

I really Enjoyed almost every aspect of these stories. great writing as always, great characters and the narration is superb. Any faults i.e mistakes in narration or writing is overshadowed by the story itself. if you are a fan of the 41st millennium this is a great book ah's i'd you are a fan of the 31st millennium this is even better for you. I highly recommend this novel to any Warhammer Fan.

Riveting epics entreched with fathomless depth

Another well crafted masterpiece. Belongs in an opera house. Kudos to those who helped in this project. Would love to hear this group do an adaptation of the Word Bearers Omnibus by Anthony Reynolds. Death to the Corpse Emperor!!! Glory to the True Gods!!!

Each story is worth a novel

Except maybe Painted Count and Soul Severed. Also a great preparation for Solar War.

Short stories

Short stories but all relevant to lead upfor Siege of Terra. Different narrator for one story was somewhat off putting
