A Horus Heresy series anthology

There were a couple of short stories in this collection that I enjoyed very much, a couple of good stories, and a couple that just seemed to miss the mark for me.

Prince of Crows was my favorite story in the anthology. It was also nice to have The Lightning Tower and The Dark King collected here. There are some elements in the stories that seem at times ambiguous and at other times to contradict or confuse the overall timeline of the series. Overall, the stories are still enjoyable.

This anthology does seem to have a heavy leaning toward the Imperial Fists and Night Lords but the Raven Guard and Iron Warriors make respectable contributions in the stories. Most of these stories tie into other events and are almost background information for arcs appearing in many of the full novels.

My least liked story was The Kaban Project which is an Adeptus Mechanicus story which ties into the novel Mechanicum.

Good series of works

I enjoyed the simplicity of the stories and how they all give a glimpse into different story lines.

Doesn't Add Much

Most of the stories don't add that much to the overall Horus Heresy. If you are interested in Konrad Curze (aka the Night Haunter) and Jago Sevatarion (aka Sevatar), you might like the last story, "The Prince of Crows." It gives a peek into the motivations of the Night Haunter and the 8th Legion. Sevatar is a complex and interesting protagonist and you almost empathize with the Night Haunter (...almost). This is the best story.
