    Description

    The planet of Caliban exists much as it has for thousands of years - the knightly orders protect the common people, fighting back the beasts that lurk in the depths of the seemingly endless forests.

    Young Zahariel and Nemiel aspire to join the greatest of the orders, led by the example of mighty Lion El'Jonson and his vision of a peaceful and unified world. But the coming of the Imperium brings new concerns and a new destiny for the Lion as part of the Great Crusade, and the sons of Caliban must decide if they will follow him to glory among the stars.

    Excellent. Très bon lecteur et histoire équilibrée

    La voix du lecteur est très agréable. L'histoire est indépendante des Hérésie d'Horus et apporte une touche de légèreté après le livre précédent. J'allais arrêter de lire la collection, et ce livre m'a remotivé à continuer.

    Great if you like Dark Angels

    What did you love best about Descent of Angels?

    I loved getting additional lore and backstory about the Dark Angels.

    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The story was about the coming of the Emperor and the creation of the First Legion. It has almost no tie in to the actual Horus Heresy. So as a tale about HOW the Dark Angels end up the Dark Angels of the 41st Millennium it's not bad. As a story of the Hersey it fails utterly.

    Have you listened to any of Gareth Armstrong’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to Gareth Armstrong on several other Black Library books, and he does a very good job telling this story. You always have a feel for who is talking due to the inflection of the character's 'voice' and he is very clear and brings a lot to the tale.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not really. The story felt kind of disjointed and at times it was hard to tell the passage of time. Some events were told as if they took mere hours or days but took weeks. Other events happened concurrently or behind other events in the book. The story itself could be tighter and better told.

    Any additional comments?

    I am glad I have listened to it. I'm not necessarily thrilled with the story itself. But then I'm not the biggest fan of the Dark Angels, so there is that.

    Waste of a credit

    Worst in the series up until this point - it feels half finished. The characters’ dialogue is so whiny it’s hardly bearable - and it’s made worse by the narrator’s performance. The story is meandering and feels mostly irrelevant by the end. Actually considering quitting the series due to this one but I think I’ll try the next one hoping that this dud is an outlier.

    Fantastic seemingly unrelated story.

    Great book that im assuming was only written to inroduce the primarch of the first legion the dark angels and give a full backstory. otherwise this book is mostly unrelated to everything that has happened in the rest of the series so far. that being said it was a great book maybe my favorite in the series yet and a needed break from the main storyline, i cant wait to see how they tie this together once the lion enters the war with horus. The one glaring flaw in this book is the abrubt ending, epilogue really wasnt enough either. Narrator was amazing!

    Merely okay

    The main characters are one dimensional. Story felt rushed and left out good development. It felt more like a really long fan fiction rather than a black library book.

    Great & Awful

    Great story, however Gareth’s delivery when voicing Zahariel & Nemial is terrible.

    He kept the same pitch and tone of them from their child & teen years into their adult Astartes years, very cringeworthy & immersion breaking thibking of a full grown Astartes that sounds like my 9 year old nephew, and thats just my take on these 2 characters mind you.

    Still, Mitchel Scanlon wrote a really good novel & it is worth reading/listening to.

    adds no value to the Horus heresy series

    this has nothing to do with the Horus heresy provides little to no information regarding the character for which it is named after .

    couldn't finish.

    not for me, maybe if more things actually happened, I was not taken in hearing about a boy who would become a space marine.

    One of the worst written book I've ever experience

    Show don't tell. It's hard for a book to mess that up, but this book managed it. It constantly clobbers you with unrelenting exposition. Warhammer codexes are more subtle, and they're there to sell plastic. In the rare instances where it isn't expositing, what passes for tension is just you wondering when the characters are going to do the obvious thing you figured out 15 minutes earlier or if they're going to get Deus Ex Machinaed. The narrator did ok, but he can't save this wreck.

    Glad I didn't skip it.

    Honestly this book should be 1st in the series and give you some back ground. Originally I was told to skip this as it doesn't add a lot to the Horus Heresy. But I found out about the Dark Angels and I am So, So glad I didn't skip it. So far this is my favorite book in the series and made me a real fan of the Dark Angels.

    well told and well read

    while disconnected from much of the microcosm and macrocosm of the Horus heresy, its great, as a story, giving you an intricate and detailed understanding of the dark angels before the heresy.

    Gareth Armstrong did a fine job, though sometimes voices blended and fell away, making some conversations confusing, his gusto was infectious.

    Mitchel Scanlon did a fantastic job of bringing the dark angel's homeworld to life and telling the story of a people subjugated by their own volition, and the complexity therein.

    Excited to see where Zahariel goes later in the series that ending was great.

    dive into the heritage of the Dark Angeles

    A nice mix of Knighthood first in the forest, later in space fighting against evil.

    Unterhaltsam mit Mängeln

    Ich kann (noch?) keinen Zusammenhang zur Haupthandlung der Horus Heresy sehen. Auch wenn die Geschichte unterhaltsam war hatte ich doch mehr erwartet zu erfahren wie es um Horus und co weitergeht. Auch der Sprecher hat m. E. manche Figuren wie z. B. den Emperor schlecht personifiziert.
