Summary

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.

Black Legion goodness

Great story and excellent performance. Well worth the money. Wonderful continuation of the original story, Talon of Horus.

Excellent follow up book

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

A deeper insight into the Black Legion

As with the first book, a very well written and compelling story that gives an interesting and in depth look at the beginning of the Black Legion.

Aaron Demski-Bowden does a great job of conveying the tragedy that has befallen both the Traitors and the Imperium itself. Both of which have become a shadow of what they were before the Horus Heresy.

Great, even for loyalists.

Despite reading Warhammer 40k for years now I've always avoided novels focusing on the Traitors. Yes, even The Night Lords books which every fan tells me are amazing. I picked this up more for the fact that Sigismund and the Black Templars were mentioned in the description. Despite, Abaddon and the Black Legion being the obvious focus the narrative still managed to fairly portray both sides and, dare I say it, actually made understand the Traitors point of view. The fight between the first High Marshal and the Warmasters sucessor was as intense as you would expect. A must listen (or read) for any 40k fan. And yes now I'm going to find the Night Lords Omnibus.

Definitely worth a listen

I have a on , off relationship with the black library. There are some good and some awful , this thankfully is the former. An enjoyable book that keeps you wanting to listen.

Superb!

Aaron is on form, as usual. Not many can write for Chaos as well as him! And Jonathan Keeble’s voice really brings everything to life! Perfect book to follow up the Talon Of Horus.

Breathtaking

The best Warhammer 40k novel I’ve read yet! Supreme characterization, so much so that I’m almost on the side of Abaddon concerning the Imperium.

Great book!

Just as the first installment in the tale of the black legion, this book really moved me, shaping the 40k universe with every minuit of listening. Great novel brought to flourishing life by Keeble's acting skill, fully recommended, but read the first one first, the talon of horus

We Are Returned

This is one of my favourite series so far, hopefully it hints at the actual return of Abaddon to the table top with a new model. Massive fan service in these books. Great to hear the trials of the Ezekarion and Abaddon to forge the BL.

Another great book and read by this pair!

Fantastic story and read by the duo involved. Jonathan Keeble changed the pronunciation of a few of the names from book one, and I felt his voicing was slightly stronger in the previous book as well. Those things dont make this experience not worth the money!

both do a great job!!!

This was a great follow-up book, so much more back story and arc advancement. I love this genre so much.

Black Legion

Tremendous book. Really helps put imagery and fluff to the black legion. Can’t wait for more, especially Cadia and Drach’nyenn

Fantastic!

When I first read this book, I loved the story but revisiting it as an audiobook was phenomenal. Jonathan Keeble brings an amazing performance and it’s a joy to listen to. Highly recommended!
