Publisher's Summary

Driven almost to the brink of self-destruction at Isstvan V, the Iron Hands now seek vengeance for the murder of their primarch Ferrus Manus.

Gathering survivors from the Raven Guard and the Salamanders aboard any vessels capable of warp travel, these Shattered Legions wage a new campaign of annihilation against the traitor forces across the galaxy - a campaign masterminded by legendary warleader Shadrak Meduson.

This Horus Heresy anthology contains 10 short stories by authors including Dan Abnett, Chris Wraight, John French and many more. Also, in the The Seventh Serpent, Graham McNeill revisits the ragtag crew of the starship Sisypheum as they are drawn into a war of subterfuge against the Alpha Legion.

A Fine & Relevant Collection

As the name implies, this covers the legions shattered at the Drop Site Massacre and related stuff but in a series of short stories that are mostly unconnected. While it doesn't involve the Emperor going on about his life story or anything particularly profound, Shattered Legions does offer perspectives of the Iron Hands centrally, Raven Guard, Alpha Legion, and a bit of Horus' boys.

Certainly worth a listen.

Good Pulp

The 40k universe remains a fun and enjoyable universe to indulge in. No need for high art. Just a chain blade and bolter.

Wow!

This was a pretty solid adventure into the 40k universe. I was blown away by the pacing of the story, before I noticed I was inching up on 30mins left and was lamenting the ride was nearly over. It doesn't have a strong focus on the rest of the Heresy series, it's more like a spotlight being shown on the survivors of the drop site massacre and the effects on the greater narrative. Still, it's become one of my favorite books in the series. Give it a read if you love the Iron Hands.

All good 'cept the SHOUTING!

Good & varied stories in the Warhammer 40,000 Horus Heresy universe. The anthology books in the series are greatly underappreciated.

Only prob was one of the narrator's tending to lostsa shouting of the lines. I get they're exclamations, heat of the battle stuff but makes it really hard to listen to when I'm going to sleep. Can't imagine listening on headphones...

Love the change in the story lines of the different characters

Very good story. Horus’ betrayal really shook these guys up to the core. No wonder their ticked off and confused.
