Publisher's Summary

While Horus' rebellion burns across the galaxy, a very different kind of war rages beneath the Imperial Palace.

The 'Ten Thousand' Custodian Guard, along with the Sisters of Silence and the Mechanicum forces of Fabricator General Kane, fight to control the nexus points of the ancient eldar webway that lie closest to Terra, infested by daemonic entities after Magnus the Red's intrusion. But with traitor legionaries and corrupted Battle Titans now counted among the forces of Chaos, the noose around the Throneworld is tightening, and none but the Emperor Himself can hope to prevail.

    " enjoyable "

    was an interesting story and gave a unique perspective on the war. being based upon the emperor, he didn't get as much book space as u would have expected, however it worked well.

    Story
    "Superb Insight into the Custodies & The Emperor!"

    Riveting and insightful. Here we learn of the exact nature of the catastrophe that Magnus the Red wrought upon the work the Emperor was attempting to carry out on a human webway.
    Told from several viewpoints, a Custodian Guard, an augmented Blood Angel whom could no longer fight as his bionics are glitchy and more including a tech priest from mars who was responsible for the creation of one of warhammer 4000's most iconic vehicles, the mighty Land Raider ( bet you thought it was called that because it could raid over land! ? Not the case at all.
    Master of Mankind is amongst my top five in the Horus Heresy series.
    Jonathan Keeble performamce is as always at the top of his game.
    Highly entertaining from start to finish.

    "Sexy Emperor"
    What other book might you compare The Master of Mankind to and why?

    We had a few glimpses of the Emperor in books like Deliverance Lost but this one takes the cake.


    What does Jonathan Keeble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jon found the sexiest possible voice for the Emperor .

    "Solid entry in the Horus Heresy"

    Great narrator. I enjoyed the story, even though it took a long time to really get going. The last few chapters were great though, so persevere if it feels a little slow in the middle.

    Story
    "Demski-Bowden writes the warp like a dream!"
    Would you listen to The Master of Mankind again? Why?

    The discriptions of the Web-way are amazing, and the Emperor's true intentions are laid bare, in all their horror and glory.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is one of the few 40K/Horus Heresy books that actually had a solid twist I didn't see coming, despite the fact that all the elements were presented to the reader.


    What about Jonathan Keeble’s performance did you like?

    A very solid and engaging performance.


    Any additional comments?

    Aaron Demski-Bowden is rapidly becoming my new favorite WH40K author along with Dan Abnett and Sandy Mitchell.
    Keep 'em coming Aaron!
