Publisher's Summary

A Horus Heresy audiobook anthology

When Horus rebelled against the Emperor, the ensuing civil war nearly destroyed the Imperium. War raged across galaxy, resulting in a struggle where death was the only victor.

Events from the Great Crusade and the early days of the Heresy are explored in a series of short stories covering the Space Wolves, Word Bearers, World Eaters, Dark Angels, Sisters of Silence, Custodian Guard...and the Emperor himself in a unique tale that will you have questioning all your assumptions about the Master of Mankind.

War raged across galaxy, pitting Astartes against their battle-brothers in a struggle where death was the only victor. But long before that, the Legions struggled with their identities and the demands of the Great Crusade. From battles with alien invaders to conflicts within a Legion, and even dealing with a wayward primarch, these stories show the battles fought as the Great Crusade draws to a close and the Horus Heresy begins....

Some amazing short stories set in the Hersey era.

Loved it. Stories were informative and quick, really enjoyed the final tale; After Desh'ea. With Angron and Kharn, with the birth of the World Eaters

Not worth an Audible Credit

Gareth Armstrong, Toby Longworth and Jonathan Keeble should be the only narrator's used by the Black Library. everyone else? Not a fan. The stories were, in my opinion not the best in the Horus Heresy series.

Somewhat Regurgitating<br />

Most of the lore insights had already been covered and some of the parts are really not worth the money.

Not unlike other HH collections

It makes sense that the short story collections vary in quality, but that isn't to say any of these particular stories are bad. A few are forgettable, but there are bits that really add to the larger story arc at play.

Great overall, varying quality

The First and Last stories are truly great.
The story of Angron first meeting his legion and the hammering down of the idea that the anguish at the loss of his gladiator comrades and the denial of perishing with them is as much a source of his anger if not more, than the Butcher's nails implants. It brought me to tears. All the voice actors are great but Toby Longworth is in a league of is own.

fantastic book.

The last church, wolf at the door, and the world eater(i forget it's title) are just amazing. The other stories were good too, but those three were some of the best short stories from black library I heard.

good short stories

A great collection of multiple short stories that help bring the the larger picture of the story line into view. Filling gaps and back stories and keeping everything fresh.

Amazing 40K stories!

Loved it. Easily the best book of the Horus Heresy so far. Something about the short story format really allows the grimdark future of the 40K universe to shine and come through. I may have favorite characters from previous books but these are my favorite stories so far.
