Graham McNeill is good at incorporating the weirder aspects of the thousand sons experiences in way the flows well. Characters are engaging and the sad tradegy of the thousands sons and magnus continues.

Most flesh out the end of other stories. e.g. Exocytosis takes place right after Angels of Caliban.
The performance was outstanding. I particularly loved the thunder legion part with Matthew Hunt.

A great story and must read in the HH series

Finally get a satisfying insight into the mind and motives of the emporer. ADB does a great job on the dialogue between characters and the performance is faultless.

Great story.

Fantastic book about a legion I didn't care for before Scars came out and now I love. Only problem with this audio book is the editing let's it down. Many mistakes with passages repeating themselves and so on. A proof listen could drastically have improved the quality of this audio book. Very much still listenable however.

I was looking forward to the ending.

Another miss from Graham. How did he write such a great book with the thousand sons but this bloated mess and some other meagre offerings in this series?
Too many events and ideas with pointless characters who are not built up in any way that inspires the listener to care for them pass through from chapter to chapter.
Great characters from previous books are not done justice in this one. Loken is by far the worst treated character. He comes across not as PTSD victim who has lost everything he has ever known and loved, on the verge of a breakdown. But as an idiot who's dialogue does not make sense.
There much more I could go on to complain about but I will finish with: was looking forward to the book ending to see what the crescendo would be like. It was pointless, this book can be skipped and if absolutely necessary, read the synopsis online.

Really good at fleshing out some characters

Some of these short stories are fantastic at bringing the listener in and connecting us to the characters. Some really interesting ideas portrayed and the exposition the sigilite gives helps understand him and the emporer whilst sign posting events to come.
Not a must read for the overall listener but definitely a shame to miss out on.

Listened to this after the angel of caliban. Thought it would be a waste of time to go back and read this but in actual fact i greatly enjoyed this book and found I grew quite fond of the White Scars.

I enjoyed this book. Particularly how will fleshed out the night lords were. Curzes philosophy about the warp, the emperor and his own role was fascinating and the action is all well and good. However, it fails to move the main story forward and can be skipped if your more interested in what Horus is up to.
If you enjoyed Unremembered Empire and Fear to Tread, then I recommend this to you.

Great book, pulls together the aimless loyalists

With the majority of the books fleshing out the heresy but not seeming to add to the overall story, a bit of continuity a drive is needed. That focus and drive is what this book offers.

Some of the stories are very good.
