David Annandale brings a Lovecraftian vibe to the 40k universe with his tale of a descent into madness brought about by the machinations of a daemonic house.

Brilliantly narrated by Dugald Bruce-Lockhart who manages to capture the essence of each character perfectly.

Brilliant story wonderfully executed. The full brilliance and arrogance of Cawl are perfectly captured in a story that grips you from end to end and shows the clash between the radical (heretical?) methods of Cawl and the indoctrinated loyalty of the Space Marines.

A good insight into Saint Celestine

A decent enough story giving insight into the lives and deaths of Saint Celestine, the dogmatic fanaticism some imperial agents hold towards the Emperor and the dangers of rampant zealotry. Excellent narration... Although the accent mix for the characters was a little jarring at times.

Really great story. Guy Haley really manages to give disturbing life to the darkest of the Primarchs and this is set off wonderfully by Jonathan Keeble's narration. A must listen for Night Lords fans and 40K enthusiasts in general.

Not Eisenhorn, but great nonetheless

Great story with a little twist. Looking forward to more stories of Erasmus Crowl...adding words to exceed 15 word limit 😁

Decent enough...not really horror though

If i was reviewing this as simply short stories then I'd say they we're decent enough 40k stories, but with the exception of the 2nd story, the horror aspect was a little lacking for me. That said, Doug Bradley brilliantly narrated the first story and the 2nd story had a decent horror feel to it. Overall, not a bad listen, but one that i could havr missed.

A fantastic insight into the traitor Primarchs

A book that shows the fragility of the sons of Horus wirhout the warmaster and the traitor alliances as a whole. Also gives a great insight into the differences between the ascended and non-daemon Primarchs and their allegiances. A story that shows just how much of a knife edge the traitors were on just prior to the final assault on Terra. A must reas for heresy fans.

Not what i was expecting

For a Nagash book, Nagash featured very little in the book and this felt more like a Neferata book. Don't get me wrong, it's enjoyable enough, but i was really expecting an extension of the older Nagash books which this really didnt feel like.

Really enjoyed this, great story and great insight into the Heresy Ahriman and Magnus. There were times it felt like it was a bit meandering, but everything snaps back to an explosive climax.
