Summary

A Warhammer 40,000 audio drama collection

The Dark Angels are among the most steadfast and noble of the Space Marines - but their dark secret, the Fallen they relentlessly hunt, always threatens to bring an end to their legacy of honour....

Listen to it because:

The sons of the Lion take centre stage in six audio dramas that reveal the great deeds and dark moments of some of their most prominent heroes.

Description:

No matter the foe, regardless of the odds, the proud warriors of the Dark Angels stubbornly refuse to accept defeat. Descendants of the First Legion, they stand foremost amongst the Chapters of the Space Marines, mankind’s mightiest defenders. None fight with more grim determination than the Dark Angels, and their renowned special companies - the Deathwing and the Ravenwing - are held in awe by allies and enemies alike. Yet behind their devotion to the Imperium lies a dark obsession....

This audio drama anthology contains six tales of the Dark Angels, their missions to defend mankind and their relentless hunt for the mysterious Fallen. Within these tales, you'll be introduced to some of the greatest heroes of the Dark Angels - Chapter Master Azrael, Chief Librarian Ezekiel, Interrogator-Chaplain Asmodai, Deathwing Master Belial and Company Master Balthasar – as they face their greatest trials and darkest moments. You'll also see the Dark Angels through the eyes of mortal warriors who face the Space Marines' wrath after an encounter with the arch-Fallen, Cypher.

A must for Dark Angels fans!

It was gripping and exciting from start to finish. I particularly liked the story in which Azrael, Grand Master of the Dark Angels, has to step into the fray against one of the Forces of Chaos' most dreaded and feared minions . . . (no spoilers here, buy this great audiobook and find out for yourself!).

Well read with occasional fun bits

More like a set up for bigger better stories most of the plot lines are inconsequential. Some of the longer narratives make more sense without more extensive knowledge of Dark Angel Lore. If you are a Dark Angel chapter fan boy it's worth a shot for some background painting atmosphere but otherwise read Gav Thorpe's Fallen Angels/Angels of Caliban.

Stories were a bit bland.

I'm a Dark Angel's fan, but I didnt really connect with the characters in the short stories, and the stories themselves felt disjointed and shallow. Just had a feeling of being underwhelmed. Just an 'alright' score from me.

Some good stories

It was a good listen, especially if you like the Dark Angels.. The sound effects and music overlays are a great inclusion to the story
