If you don't know where to start with Horus Heresy audio, this curated collection is the perfect beginning - and if you just want to reexperience these exciting adventures, this is your chance!  

For more than 200 years, the armies of the Emperor of Mankind fought to reconquer the galaxy - led by the superhuman primarchs, the Space Marine Legions brought countless worlds back under the rule of ancient Terra. Now Horus, once honoured Warmaster and favoured son of the Emperor, has been corrupted by the whispered promises of Chaos. At his command the Imperium is torn apart by a terrible and bloody civil war, the likes of which the galaxy has never seen....

A great mix

Each of the stories were well written, produced and voice acted. Definitely a fan of this format for short stories. Good if you want more digestable stories and don't want to spend a month's credit on a single story.

Visceral

I love these stories. The writers are perfect wordsmiths. Epic battles and heart wrenching betrayal.

It's only flaw may be that the story is rather hard to follow at times.

I personally enjoyed reading these books to listening.

If Michael Bay did an audio book

The writing is solid, as you would expect from the authors listed. But the background audio production was so over the top as to be distracting.

Excellent!!

Having all these stories broight together and relased in this format is wonderful. I've wanted to get into the Horus Heresy for a while, and this was the perfect way to do it.

The production values are sky high, you're not just listening to someone reading a story. The music and sound effects are very well done and put you right there in the moment.

The performanes match the production in excellence, again adding to the immersion you feel as.you experience these stories.

Amazing!

This was so very well done! Each short story had me on the edge of my seat and sucked me right in.
My favorite was the small glimpse into Void combat in ‘Butchers Nails’. And getting info on what the Primarchs were doing and what they were like during the Horus Heresy. The cast was great all around! Hopefully there will be a Vol. 2

Okay, but not worth it.

Waste of money in my opinion. Plus the stories in this collection are given to you out of chronological and release order so also makes if difficult to listen to if your trying to listen to it in either form.

A smattering of imperium.

Some of my most favorite tales from the Horus Heresy great for longtime fans of the lore but might be over the heads of the uninitiated.

I love the audio books with sounds effects

The books with accompanying sound effects for the narrative are well done in this collection. Thank you all for the production.

Great Stories, by little context

There's little continuity in the stories. I was hoping for a sequence of the Horus Heresy chapters. The readers did an amazing job and the sound FX added to the submersion. Although, not a bad buy.

Great collection of short stories

Loved it from start to finish. Some awesome bits of lore from the Horus Heresy not found in the main series.
