Great short Drama Stories

If your new to 40k would avoid this, it does require an understanding knowledge of general 40k and space marines to full appreciate the content

Certified Grimdark

Excellent narration and production, immersive action throughout. "The Great Tomb" is a standout.

Title is wrong in the listing tho.

it's alright

so it was alright, the stories tended to spend to much time describing things which made things seem to drag out, but the stories overall got much better towards the later ones.

Outstanding!

I've always loved the voice work of Toby Longworth and he totally shines in this collection, especially in "Glorious Tomb".

Amazing performance...the stories tho..

this was pretty fun to listen to and never boring. But some of the stories were very meh. but I would still recommend for a painting background book or if your working and not able to put your full attention to the book.

Would recommend

Some of the stories are better than others, but the performances are fantastic and the action scenes are great. My favorite ones are The Glorious Tomb, Daedalus, and Fireborn.

superb quality

the book was amazing the only bad side is that now I wish the other books added in the hail of gunfire, explosions, and dramatic music. This was everything I wanted in a warhammer novel

can't recommend enough,

some of the vest voice and sounds design I've ever heard absolutely recommend it. you can really tell they put a lot of work into this book, each chapters a little story into itself.

Mostly good

The sound effects can sometimes be a bit distracting, although they are of good quality and certainly add something. I felt the first and last story were a bit weaker, but enjoyed most of them.

Good for new comers

This is my first entry to Warhammer 40k. a good collection of stories around the Space Marines and what they're about and capable of. Voice acting and sound effects did an excellent job of immersing you into the world and was fun to listen to. I look forward to listening to other Warhammer 40k titles by this author and audiobook team.
