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.

Great collection of Stories

This was something I felt the Horus Heresy series sorely needed. Small side stories to help expand the true scale of this massive event. Seeing how Horus' betrail shook the very foundations of the galaxy.

a pack of decent stories

I tried to read the phsyical book of this particular entry in the series once before but I was never drawn in as I thought I would have been. Listening to them now, however, I was drawn in the no more than 3 no less than 2 of the 8 stories. they all had something to offer, but the ones I ended up enjoying were the stories of woth characters I knew or were familiar with. With that being said, I did like 2 stories that had new characters in them that I hope I'll see in future installments. The only reason why I managed to finish this book in its entirety was because of the performances from the readers. A few of which I had never heard read personally before and I loved them.

overall: decent couple of side stories, i can see how the stories explain or coincide with the series but it felt like filler that I'll be glad to have read but not return to. Amazing performances though, especially in the last chapter.
