Summary

The Thramas Crusade draws to its inevitable conclusion, with the forces of the Dark Angels and the Night Lords locked in a struggle which neither side can abandon.

The Night Haunter lies comatose after being mauled by his primarch brother Lion El'Jonson, and in his absence it falls to Sevatar and the remaining members of the Kyroptera to command the Legion. But the self-styled 'Prince of Crows' has his own plans to save the Night Lords from annihilation - plans he intends to follow, with or without his comrades in tow.

Sevatar is the greatest character in HH

he's just the best. dark, twisted but in his own way caring for the legion. through his eyes you get an insight into Kurze, as well as some epic action that look great on that cinema in your head.

40K at its finest!

I haven't liked most of the audio books from black library that i have listened to. Way to much shooty sound effects and not enough good story. This one was really good, and had me pulled into the story trying to figure out what was going to happen. I was trying to remember some of the 30k lore that i know about Curze, who is definitely not the main character in this book, and loving how it all turned out. It really brings the flavor of the Night Haunter to the table, yet from his point of view he is the Jesus Christ of Nostramo. Holy crap, this book just really made me appreciate what happened to Curze and how messed up he is. Great story. highly suggested.

Sev is the hero the Night Lords deserve.

As a Night Lords player, this book really gets me fired up and provides a lot of potential for back stories for my army. It also gives great insight into the phyche of the Night Haunter and the legion as a whole.

“Ladies.”

Sevatar... ah, Jago. Best character in 40k hands down and this novella gets straight to the heart of that.

Love Sevatar

Sevatar is my 3rd favorite Astartes during the Horus Heresy behind Archamus and Sigusmund of the Imperial Fists. In a sense the Sevatar is more human than most Astartes because other Astartes may have had a grudge after such a defeat, but he didn't care about settling the score. He was more focused on saving the Legion and even risked his life to do so. One of my more favorite short reads of the Horus Heresy.

Only True Author of the 8th Legion

Once again Aaron Dembski-Bowden teaches an absolute master class in story telling. Also, this is the only author to treat the 8th as more than just the punching bags of other 40k (and 30k) storylines. If you really love the Nightlords, and all of the heroes in midnight clad, then this is for you. All of ADB’s stories of the 8th are for you. This author is able to fairly grip the 40k universe in a way that brings the story to life and puts the reader there as it happens.

Keeeeble... you are a fine voice actor for other characters. So why have you done this to us? I hate your take on Curze and Sevatar. You have insulted the 8th Legion and all of its fans with your performance in this book and the Primarch Konrad Curze book. You read Curze as though he were a serpentine Sméagol with zero base in his voice. Have you ever even seen a picture of him? FFS man! And now you further add insult to injury with your take on Jago Sevatarion, the greatest single combatant Astartes (yeah he beat Sigismund even if DQ’d)? How dare you, sir!? You portrayed Sevatar with such a weak nasally voice that I thought you were joking. Seriously? All I hear in your performance, is this legend’s voice, as Squidward from Sponge Bob. What a desecration. Surely you are trolling us fans at this point.

Near flawless. ADB has treated us to a defining moment at the end of the Thramas Crusade. This story brings to life one of the most infamous Astartes First Captains of all the legions, Jago Sevatarion. The author delivers tremendous depth of the characters and the battles that rage around and within them. I am grateful every time this author is commissioned to write more Nightlords canon and this story is worth every penny for that.

Very revealing!

This book explains the motivation of Primarch Kurze, and sheds light the 8th legion, their tactics and the reason for their spreading out. I liked the story but the voice acting did not match Jago Sevatarion or Konrad Kurze; the voices were not sinister. Jago came off as whiney instead of the voice used for Talos.

God I wish there was more.

ADB is one of the best writers for 40k without him this genre and the love I have for this universe wouldn't exist.

OUTSTANDING!

One of the very best Horus Heresy works in the entire catalog! It is Dembski-Bowden at his very best! Also, highlights Jonathan Keeble's talents as a narrator!

First audio book on this service and I'm hooked!

I already read the book before getting the audio file, but the voice acting is so excellent that I prefer listening to it. This is one of the best HH short stories in the series and this audio book is some of the best voice acting done. If you're giving audio books a try I highly recommend starting with this one.
