Description

The Shadow Crusade has begun. While the Ultramarines reel from Kor Phaeron's surprise attack on Calth, Lorgar and the rest of the Word Bearers strike deep into the realm of Ultramar.

Their unlikely allies, Angron and the World Eaters, continue to ravage each new system they come across - upon the garrison planet of Armatura, this relentless savagery may finally prove to be their undoing. Worlds will burn, Legions will clash and a primarch will fall.

Excellent

The story stands up there with the best in the series. narration is good. Would have loved some auto tune or something on the dreadnought voices though. I really am developing a bad habit of listening to these too quickly though.

Eye Opening

This book was the 1st I read that priced into the heart of the World Eater's Primarch, and what a eye opening insight it gave. I never thought I'd agree with Angron.

Incredible that’s all I can say

The relationships and the character building in this book was amazing. I would actually like to go back for another listen soon simply to catch everything I could of possibly missed.

Angron the Oathbreaker, Angron the Betrayer!

Cannot recommend this Horus Heresy novel enough, ADB is fantastic in his writings as always and the amped up level of comedy alone makes this a great novel in its own right not just one of the best in the series. Jonathan Keeble also really sells the characters to a point of near realism. Like First Heretic Lorgar is a greatly interesting character usually keeping his machinations close to the chest, his obsession with truth(however ugly) leaves him a semi relatable demigod in good contrast to Angrons depravity from The Butchers Nails. Angron is simply amazing, wont even describe because everything about him is central to the plot and Lorgars plans of both brotherly love and supreme conquest. This is an absolute must for those plowing through the series and easily rivals ADBs near perfectly executed Night Lords trilogy.

The Final Duel is Catharsis of the Best Kind

ADB again does a magnificent job of making the traitors nuanced and complex. Argel Tal and Kharn have a true friendship.

Brotherly Loyalty

I came away from the story not caring much about Angron but the author does a good job of helping the reader to understand him more and empathize with him and his scarred legion. Lorgar’s presence throughout provides a lot of clarity to the bigger picture. The story has great action sequences but also solid dialogue and character development. At its heart this story is clearly one of brotherly loyalty and although Lorgar, Angron and their legions are on a bloody genocidal rampage through Ultramar (with a purpose to be revealed at the end) their brotherly bond still leaves much to be admired. The theme is also strong between Kharn and Argel Taal, etc. Solid narrating. Solid action. Solid characters. And just a great and intriguing story. Definitely recommend.

Five Skulls for the Blood God

Angron alone makes this a must read. If you wanna dive into how the World Eaters wage war, pick this up. If you want to hear lines like "bring me 300 skulls, and build me a throne" pick this up. Blood for the Blood God, then pick this up.

too lopsided

struggled to finish this one. without letting out any spoilers it felt like a giant loyalist snuff story. the ease at which at which the opposing side is killed is just annoying but the ending makes it worthwhile I guess.

Brotherhood and betrayal

ADB has crafted an amazing story that pairs the World Eaters and Word bearers in a way that you never thought you'd be interested in. The author has an amazing talent when it comes to writing about his characters, you sympathize even as they do the unthinkable and deplorable. The ending will leave you stunned and heartbroken, something you couldn't think possible in a story where there main characters are 8 foot tall genetically engineered superhumans created to slaughter. My favorite book in the series by far.

Great book that left me disappointed in the end.

First things first - this might be one of the best books within the series. The fate of Angron, the anger he feels and his reasons for being the way he is are thematically interesting and told in a very compelling way. The brotherhood between Kharn and Argel Tal is fun to follow and the book has so much gore and bloody battles, the final one being an especially long and gory account, that any Horus Heresy/Warhammer fan will have a blast reading it (or listening to it).
HOWEVER! (Spoilers for this next part, if you are already familiar with the fates of the primarchs, Erebus and Kor Phaeron you can read this)

The description says "a primarch will fall". Well, he doesn´t, none of them does. Angrons story seems to be heading to an inevitable conclusion in this book and it suffers heavily from not being able to kill him off. Guilliman just retreats, Angron becomes a demon and that is that. Not even the satisfaction of seeing Erebus hacked to death by Kharn is given to the reader. And that really leads to this book failing to have a satisfactory conclusion in my eyes. Now of course the blame for this lies more on GW/Black Library than on Mr. Dembski-Bowden. They have the tabletop game to think of and the other, upcoming 26 books in the series. And it is not like this is the first time either; horrific though it was, how many TRULY important characters died at Istvaan? Please don´t get me wrong, I enjoyed this audiobook a lot - again, except for what I just talked about it might be my favorite book so far - however I find myself being really annoyed for the first time with this series inability to break free from the bonds of the story-boundaries and having to cater to the whims of the brand. GW wouldn´t just give away the chance to bring any primarch back, safe maybe Sanguinius. And that leads to me feeling a bit burned out with these books, I don´t have the time to listen to 26 more of these knowing that little and less will be of consequence and it all can be summed up with "Horus dies at Terra".

Bisher bestes Buch der Horus Heresy Reihe

Das Buch, das sich um die World Eaters dreht, fängt die Wucht und Heftigkeit die man von diesem Orden erwarten kann hervorragend ein.
