This was a great story ,it kept me listening the whole way true .All the characters were really fleshed out and were very interesting .The story was great and was well paced with the right balance on story development and action.David Timson did a great narration and was a much better performance then the one he did for Fulgrim.Great insight into the Alpha Legion and the plot of the Horus Heresy.

The planet of Caliban exists much as it has for thousands of years - the knightly orders protect the common people, fighting back the beasts that lurk in the depths of the seemingly endless forests. Young Zahariel and Nemiel aspire to join the greatest of the orders, led by the example of mighty Lion El'Jonson and his vision of a peaceful and unified world. But the coming of the Imperium brings new concerns and a new destiny for the Lion as part of the Great Crusade, and the sons of Caliban must decide if they will follow him to glory among the stars.

You can skip this book if you want to continue reading about the main storyline of the Horus Heresy unless i missed something i didnt come across anything relative to it , lots of background on the Dark Angels and Caliban but there wasn't enough action for me , the story was weak especially the second part.The Narrator was very good but the voice acting for some of the characters was very annoying and kinda took away from the story.

I found the story to be good but the ending seemed abit rushed , the narrator wasn't great ,he would be better narrating the wind and the willows or something along those lines ,not a story set in the grim dark 41st millennium
