Summary

With news of Horus' treachery spreading across the galaxy, the Great Crusade grinds to a halt as the primarchs and their Legions decide where their loyalty lies - with the Emperor or with the rebel Warmaster.

The Dark Angels, too, face a time of testing, both among the stars and on their home world, Caliban. Luther, once Lion El'Jonson's trusted second-in-command, now languishes as an exile in all but name while his master struggles to thwart the traitors' advance upon the forge world Diamat. But an ancient evil gathers its strength beneath the surface of Caliban, and the First Legion will soon be thrust into a deadly conflict where all that they know will be cast into doubt.

jarring changes in character voices.

the 1st legion story arc is shaping up to be one of my favourites this narrator though. I just cant get in to the dialogue flows, trans-human super soldiers, of which all of his voices are distinctly deeper and rougher than humans. except the 2 main protagonists, who sound like prebubescent lads whose voices will never break. irritating to say the least. I'm on the verge of just buying any further books in the series, that he narrates, in physical copy, so I can just read and not have to listen to this performance again.

Fun to Learn More About the Dark Angels

Good progression of the Horus Heresy series, though more of a political filler book rather than a key focal point within the Heresy. Pros: • The plots are quite good and you get a real sense of some of the inner conflict within the legion itself. • Likeable characters and a good sense of comradery between the battle brothers. Cons: • The narrator seems to refuse to want to shout or raise his voice at all during key moments of dialogue which would have suited it. • Could predict a lot of what happened from the offset.

A slower start

In the end, this was a huge story, deep and broad. It's start however was a bit slowboiling. Another story with old friends from past books, and it was writtern well and comfortable. You get to experience both the calm between wars, and the horrors of battle as they unfold. Much politics, and many names, that can be somewhat confusing. As a sidenote, please feed your narrators. A few chapters in, the growling sound of a stomach is heared, but it just left me with a smile. The heresy moves forward. For the Emperor.

Laborious reading

The narration was very good but the story should have a been typical BL short story, at most a novella, the story meandered and dragged and if wasn’t for the narrator being good I would have stopped listening

Lore rich

have always enjoyed tales of the dark Angel's and learning upon their dark secret in such a detailed way is thoroughly enjoyable. looking forward to the next book already.

Uninspired, like Descent of Angels

Writing is uninteresting with little that surprises, performance is thoroughly unconvincing, still very confused why the narrator seems to refuse to speak loudly, anytime there is the direction 'he shouted' he instead does a strange hoarse whisper. Didnt enjoy nearly as much as other Heresy novels.

A lot better than I had expected.

So, before I started reading this one, I had heard a lot of people saying it was one of the weaker horus heresy books, and so I went in with it with some strong reservations... I have to say though, it really was not one of the weaker ones. There are multiple parts in the book that are completely fresh, ideas and themes and action that had previously not been seen in the heresy, and quite simply, I really enjoyed it.

Its good

This was a better Dark Angels book than the Decent of Angels. Unfortunately it leaves you hanging but in a good spot to help build suspense.

Another good Dark Angel HH novel. Half the book about Lion El Johnson and half about Luther. Needs more Horus in these novels but still good.
