Summary

A Horus Heresy: Primarchs novel

Few among the legendary primarchs are as feared as Konrad Curze, the Night Haunter. Even before his fall to darkness, he was a sinister legend, a remorseless killer. This is his story.

Listen to it because:

The Night Haunter is a fascinating character, a man who could have been a hero, but for the daemons that plague him, the result of his nightmarish visions of a future he helps to create. Guy Haley delves into this lord of the night, in a story you'll never forget…

The story:

Of all the Emperor’s immortal sons, the primarchs, it is Konrad Curze whose legend is the darkest. Born in the shadows of Nostramo, a world of murderers, thieves and worse, is it any surprise that he became the figure of dread known only as the Night Haunter? Heed now the tragic story of the creature Konrad Curze, master of the Night Lords Legion, of how he became a monster and a weapon of terror. He who once served the Imperium saw the truth in a maddening universe and the hypocrisy of a loveless father, and embraced the only thing that made any sense - darkness. From the blood-soaked gutters of his hiveworld upbringing, to the last days of his ill-fated existence, Curze is a primarch like no other and his tale is one to chill the very bone....

A chilling plot. Ava Dominus Box<br />

An excellent read all told. It answers several key questions regarding Konrad's time line and is a great in depth look into his mind. A bit slow in places but overall well performed.

God damn this was good

ok, so I've gone through every Heresy book and this is up there with Angel exterminatus and The Betrayer, it is the perfect Conrad Curze book, it goes into detail for his motives to the point you almost feel sorry for him... almost.

Vindication

It is a great listen and a must hear for all nightlord fans. A good insight into both nighthaunters and severtars mind sets. Great revelation about both not to be missed

If Magnus hadn’t mess up the emperor could had save Curze!!! You will understand Curze maybe feel something else than anger for him.

Wow. This story makes Angron look normal.

Curze is a complicated character who is a victim as well as a perpetrator. It’s a weird paradoxical mix. I want to feel bad for him but... well I’m not going to spoil anything. This makes me want to go buy the physical book just to own.

Couldn't put it down. Outstanding narration.

A mortifying but brilliant take on Curze's final hours, narrated to perfection by Jonathan Keeble.

Dark. Sickly sad and just a good read

This one was of course short Much like the other primarchs books. So that aside. I dearly enjoyed the madness. I fear I now shall have to seek out more nightlife books. lol
But this one was a great story. And was wonderfully performed. I got goosebumps at the end.

Everything I wanted it to be...

I stood and clapped at the end. I reserve that for really great writing and equally impressive voice acting. I'm giving it a second listen tomorrow. Well worth the meager fee or credit as this is sincerely a few hours of quality mind vacation.
