    Description

    After the betrayal at Isstvan, Horus begins his campaign against the Emperor, a galaxy-wide war that can lead only to Terra. But the road to the final confrontation between father and son is a long one - seven years filled with secrecy and silence, plans and foundations being formed across distant stars. 

    An unknown history is about to be unveiled as light is shed on the darkest years of the Horus Heresy, and revelations will surface that will shake the Imperium to its very foundation....

    'Rules of Engagement' by Graham McNeill 

    'Liar's Due' by James Swallow 

    'Forgotten Sons' by Nick Kyme 

    'The Last Remembrancer' by John French

    Previous story collection better.

    I found the majority of the short stories lacking compared to the previous collection earlier in the Horus Heresy series expect for the final 2. Worth a listen if on sale but I wouldn't pay full price.

    Some great stories here, some less great.

    As with any anthology, there will be some good books as well as some less good books, but on the whole I would say this is definitely worth the listen, even if only for The Iron Within by Rob Sanders. That short story alone is worth it. It is an incredibly well written piece with a very satisfying ending.
    Other books in here that I really enjoyed are The Face of Treachery by Gav Thorpe, Savage Weapons by Aaron Dembski-Bowden and Rules of Engagement by Graham McNeill.
    There are a couple that I felt missed the mark, either being a bit too slow or too weird. Rebirth being the standout example of this.

    Overall, well worth a listen.

    It is terrible

    It is terrible just like the last one. It has nothing to do with the Heresy

    Bad narration for some stories

    There is one narrator they use, with a nasal tone and one voice for all characters. Martyn Ellis I think. I'm sure he's a nice guy, he just needs a new job.

    good book some narration is not

    All of the stories are good. The narration by Martyn Ellis is terrible. he does not have a voice for 40K. I will never listen to a book again that is narrated by Martyn Ellis. Armstrong and Keeble you have great performances as usual. listeners can probably skip over the stories narrated by Martin Ellis, and not miss much. The stories he reads are either irrelevant or covered in other books.

    multiple stories

    the book is broken into multiple smaller books which keeps the listening easy though it feels you jump around a lot.

    it's worth the $3.00

    some of the stories bend belief, even for 40K. The narrator's continue their odd pronunciations, Martin Ellis continues being Martin Ellis.

    could not finish it

    for some reason I could not get into the short stories. found them boring and too inconsequential to the major plot.

    Short Stories, short love

    Mashed into this novel are some relatively listenable short stories. Personally, around 3 or 4 of the stories were my absolute favorite while the others were not bad, yet, they weren't what I was captivated by compared to the few I did enjoy. All the authors wrote excellent stories, but with my biased toward certain space marine legions I found myself more or less drawn to a select few authors and tales.
    The narrators, however, are exactly what you already know and love. Out of the 3 'eavy hitters though, I always thoroughly enjoy Martyn Ellis's renditions of the stories he reads, he's got a very distinct voice and tends to portray his story's characters in a distinct way without sounding too far fetched in their nuances.

    overall: good filler for the bigger heavier fluff

    Very good.

    The Iron within is probably the best short story in the whole book. others are good but it's the best.

    mediocre stories, partly terrible reader

    The stories rarely reach anything more than mediocrity. Nowhere near the potential of such a short format. The worst is the reader named Ellis. Really bad voice, terrible pronunciation. Sometimes you get the feeling that he has to switch pages. He makes strange pauses. Nowhere near any other of the readers. Butchering stories. Has only like 3 voice colorings and skips through them like he has no idea what he is reading.
    All in all worst audio book in the series I have come across by far.
