Summary

A Siege of Terra novella.

Listen to it because:

Discover the epic conclusion to the long journey of the Sisypheum through the Horus Heresy in a novella packed with revelations and action that expands the scope of the Siege of Terra.

The story:

The Shattered Legions crew of the Sisypheum, broken and at the end of their endurance, find themselves divided – torn between following their resurrected captain on a suicidal mission or obeying orders to return to Terra and rejoin their Legion brothers. 

Following a series of garbled messages intercepted by the Kryptos, the divided warriors descend to the shattered surface of Luna. Here, their bonds of loyalty, duty, and their devotion to one another will be tested as ancient horrors of the earliest days of gene-manipulation are unleashed, and a long-buried secret is revealed. 

A secret that will have far-reaching consequences for the future course of the galaxy, no matter who eventually claims Terra.

small but bittersweet

adds to the over arching storyline of Warhammer 40,000, with out a doubt a great read though is very sad 😥 definitely worth a read

Brillaint

This was a short book, but it was absolutely fantastic, if anyone wondered what happened to the last of the Shattered legion, this short story absolutely nails the outcome It maybe only 4hours, but it's 4 hours worth every second

A heroic story for the shattered legions.

A moving end to some of the hero's of the shattered legions. Great quality again and hopefully not the last we hear from some of the heroes.

This is how you make your final stand

This is Warhammer so it will never be a happy ending, particularly for this crew. All you ask is that if the characters are facing grim odds, then let their final outing have meaning. Here McNeill has given the crew of the Sisypheum a glorious send-off while still finding time to explore the characters a little more and advance some of the story. There's the ending you expect - and one you hope for. If like me you're still wishing Galaxy in Flames had a different author, now's your chance to find out.

Do you like warhammer well to bad

The author changes the universe to push their personal politics at the expense of the setting. Remember when life almost died on Tera do to nuclear war well no more. Remember when earth wasn’t Tera because the it was a different universe with it own different but similar history because this hack doesn’t. I like this small part of the larger Horus Heresy too bad it ended on a misandrist fart

so sad to see the series end

I was both excited and sad to see this novella being released, for I've grown to love the ragged crew and adventures of the Sisyphuleum, and look forward to and dread at the same time to find out how it will end. I will be truthful and say that I shredded tears on chapter 11, but it was a glorious and beautiful conclusion. A toast to Mr Graham, and thank you for all the good times and bad on letting me share the journey of the Sisyphuleum... and look forward to the next grand epic that you will show us again!

Good Book!

The story wasn't bad but (Spoilers) it would of been cool if one loyal space marine lived but then again it is the grim dark future.

Jonathan Keeble one of my favorite readers.

I love Graham McNeils writing and the inner thoughts that he conveys to his characters. Keeble expresses his beautiful writing with Steeler iteration. Loved this!
