Summary

After Isstvan, after Deliverance, the Raven Guard still endure. Their primarch Corvus Corax has rallied countless warriors to his banner, striking back at the forces of the Warmaster on every front - from the degenerate hereteks of the Mechanicum to the cruel legionaries of the Sons of Horus, none shall escape his wrath. But although Corax has managed to stall the physical corruption of his own Space Marines, what of their spirit? And what sinister end must await those who dwell forever in the darkness?

This anthology contains all of Gav Thorpe's tales of the Raven Guard in the Horus Heresy - the novellas Soulforge and Ravenlord, and short stories The Shadowmasters, The Value of Fear and Raptor. Also included is the brand-new novella Weregeld, taking Corax's legend to its grim conclusion.

Very Good

Intriguing and reflective. Showing a primarch, flaws and all. I loved it and was suitably morose at its bittersweet end.

Another breath-taking entry in the HH series

Armstrong and Banks gave a great performance. Though I prefer Armstrong, both of their unique narration styles complement one another well and it's a great to listen to. Continuously impressed!

Pretty good

The heroes tend to get out of sticky situations with ease, and some of the opposing forces could be much fleshed out, but the overall travel and ending of this story is very satisfying. 12 hours felt like far, far fewer.

The book seems to contain several stories, but as they all cover the same group of characters over a successive series of events the whole product holds together very well.

Relies heavily on previous works

If you have not read the previous novel and short stories featuring the Raven Guard Legion, most of this otherwise decent collection will make little to no sense. Get the other books first.

anticlimactic and cliched, even for GW...

I've loved nearly every Horus Heresy book, but this was a struggle to finish, cliched to the point of absurdity...
