    4.5 out of 5 stars 134

Removed from the concerns of the galaxy at large and regarding the Warmaster's unfolding Heresy with cold detachment, he has dedicated his hollow existence to the preservation of all the knowledge once held in the great libraries of Tizca, should mankind ever seek such enlightenment again. But his sons can see the change in their primarch - he is a broken soul whose mind and memories are slipping away into the tumult of the warp.

Great book, well worth a listen. Well read and easy to follow, even in the long winded parts.

Ezekyle Abaddon and his warlords strive to bind the newborn Black Legion together under threat of destruction. Now Khayon, as Abaddon's most-trusted assassin, is tasked with ending the threat of Thagus Daravek, the self-proclaimed Lord of Hosts - a rival to the Ezekyle's final fate. Fighting the vile whispers of the Dark Gods within his mind, Abaddon turns a fevered gaze back to the Imperium, where his destiny awaits. Yet the Emperor's Champion and his Black Templars stand guard at the gates of Hell, and Sigismund has waited centuries to face Abaddon in battle.

Second book in the series, not quite as good as the first, but a damned good sequel. It has its good points all the way through, but didn't quite give the same feeling as the first. I really did cling to the characters in the first, but not so much in this story. That being said its still a hell of a book and worth a listen 9/10

When Horus fell, his Sons fell with him. A broken Legion, beset by rivalries and hunted by their erstwhile allies, the former Luna Wolves have scattered across the tortured realm of the Eye of Terror. And of Abaddon, greatest of the Warmaster's followers, nothing has been heard for many years. Until now....

Aaron Dembski-Bowden is the foremost better writer of gripping stories from the Black Library. Everytime i listen to a something written by Aaron, i find myself immersed in his story and as a bonus the story is also read by my personal favorite narrator Jonathan Keeble. I cannot recommend this audio book enough 10/10
