Description

When Horus fell, his Sons fell with him. A broken Legion, beset by rivalries and hunted by their erstwhile allies, the former Luna Wolves have scattered across the tortured realm of the Eye of Terror. And of Abaddon, greatest of the Warmaster's followers, nothing has been heard for many years. Until now....

Superb story, superb performance

So very happy to see Black Library Books on Audible. I have read a number of the books but this was my first listen. Very satisfied.

Many regard Aaron Dembski-Bowden (ADB) as among if not the best author currently writing in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. He is especially good at writing chaos - the villains. He is able to find the right balance between keeping them evil, yet still giving them relatable purpose. His characters generally have much more depth than you will see in other Black Library books. Talon of Horus excels at this - we have an interesting stable of characters and, even more unusual for a Black Library book, there is character development. ADB accomplishes this by having the book effectively set in three different time periods: the main character (a chaos sorcerer) is recounting a tale to the Inquisition in the 40,000 "present," the bulk of the story is about the early formation of the Black Legion after the Horus Heresy, yet he also peppers the narrative with the main character's memories of his homeworld (Tizca) at the start of the Heresy. The story itself rises well above the normal "bolter porn" of Black Library novels and is made compelling by leaving plenty of mystery surrounding the whereabouts and actions of Abaddon. Even the World Eater character is interesting and these fellows are usually utterly two-dimensional in these stories. With this story he basically takes what I always felt was the most boring of the chaos space marine legions and makes them among the most interesting.

As audiobook the performance is superb - probably the best I have heard for the fantasy/sci-fi genre. The narrator really understands the characters and manages to give them each distinctive voices. So often I find the narration on these types of novels actually hurts the story. Not so here - I am very happy I listened to this as opposed to reading it.

In short, a must have for any fan of the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Even if you are not, its a good listen. I'd recommend doing a bit of background reading on the universe, the Horus Heresy, the original space marine legions, and the key characters that exist outside of this book - namely Horus and Abaddon. With that groundwork you should be able to follow along easy enough.

Good book with some flaws

My only gripe with the book is that the protagonist is always described as winning his battles the same way: by psychically unmaking his enemies. Otherwise it's a worthwhile read, but be prepared to get bored during most battle scenes

Best Audio Book I've Ever Heard

Wow. Just wow. Jonathan if you're reading this, brilliant job mate. You did more than read this fantastic work of fiction, you read between the lines to deliver an incredible experience. I'm pretty new to audio books, most i've heard of them are dull retellings with little inflection. You've earned a lifelong fan.

Though the storyteller is phenomenal, yes, the book itself is fantastic too. Slowly, GW is filling in the gaps left in the fluff. It feels like Lord of the Rings, an epic quest to reach a goal with a rag tag group of heroes (villains) and you get a front seat to the action. Amazing storytelling coupled with just darn good writing. I mean, you really feel like you're a part of the quest to find the flagship "Vengeful Spirit" and it's evil captain. The characters are all likable (Telemacon and Gaia in particular being my favorites) and their motives all make sense. There's breaks in the fighting, sure, but each chapter is as interesting as the last, weather words are exchanged or bolter fire.

5/5 Stars. This pairing of storyteller and author is perfect and I'm just about to start their next book.

No more Failbaddon the Harmless!

This is a great look into the heart of the Black Legion, with a great performance, probably Jonathan Keeble's best in my opinion. This does a great job at helping to repair what I, and a lot of other 40k fans, found unrepairable. As Abaddon and the Black Legion is the "bad" guy, GW has always made the Black Legion to be the greatest threat in the galaxy, but in reality they were about as dangerous as a Snotling trying to ankle bite a Adeptes Astartes. I hope the trend continues, because I think the Black Legion are amazing and would really love for them to shed their meme.

Absolute masterpiece

First and foremost I just want to say that Jonathan Keeble is an absolute artist when he does these voices. Never before have I heard a voice actor nail the demons in this book, because it absolutely can’t be easy. Nonetheless, keeble puts serious effort into these voices. Anyway, this book is absolutely awesome, it takes the imperium you know and love and puts it into a moral gray area. This book really makes you think about who are the good guys!!! Anyway, this book does a great job of exploring the chaos marines as more than just mindless worshippers of the chaos gods. It would be helpful for you to understand at least some of the lore before you sink your teeth into this one. Fabulous book, probably my favorite! Already listened through the sequel and absolutely can’t wait for the final book of the trilogy!

Finally, 3 dimensional bad guys.

ADB is in my opinion, the best writer at Black Library right now and this book is no surprise. After listening to this book, it’s very difficult to look at the bad guys as just plain old bad guys. It’s books like this one and his night Lords series that make the bad guys seem so good. Why can’t ADB write for the Blood Angels?!

LOVED THIS BOOK

The beginning of the black legion was nothing like I'd imagined it and in some ways more than it could have been. The characters and story are brilliant. I look forward to buying the sequel.

Erst lang-, dann kurzweilig

Fängt langsam an und endet mit Feuerwerk! Ein paar nette easter eggs sind auch dabei.
