A great conclusion to books 1 & 2

The narrator's performance has improved from book 1 as he has gotten into the characters.

Another month to find out more, really?

Lacks for some meaningful dialogue; perhaps some "where did it all go wrong?" philosophising between the loyalists, something that would make the protagonists - into whom we have invested over twenty-four hours - more human, and thus their murders more tragic.

Fantastic

Great Book, narrated masterfully. As a science fiction lover I have high standards, this has met them in most areas and surpassed them in a few others.

Don't listen with headphones

The music is unnecessarily much louder than the narration. I regret even spending money on this junk.

Great plot/continuation

This book does a great job continuing the plot in a way that keeps you listening wondering how it will end.

somehow this series keeps getting better

This is honestly my favorite edition so far, with so many building events in a shocking climax that keeps barreling forward! improving from every issue I had with the last few this book removes the blatant sexism, reinforces characters and just keeps you listening!

After 2 books of buildup it hits hard and fast

For the love of The God-Emperor/Omnissiah you must due your duty to the throne and read these historical documents.
