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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Worst Heresy book so far

To echo the sentiment of many popular online reviews: Yes, this book sucks. It's the worst in the series for Horus Heresy; the worst for fleshing out the Dark Angels; the voice acting was sub-par at best; the secrets that were revealed were dull and pointless; and in general, even if you're not into the lore, this is a horribly boring and badly paced story. '

You should only read it if you feel compelled to say that you've read/listened to all of the Horus Heresy books.

Action

Story started of interesting but it did take a while to get to the battles unlike book one. Near the last two hours the suspense was awesome and build up was great.

Snoozefest

This story is pretty darn boring - 8 hours of slooooow plodding backstory that feels like a 60s fantasy novel, followed by a couple hours of okay ish 30k stuff. Gareth Armstrong is a great narrator, but this story could be omitted completely from Horus Heresy and nobody would notice. I wish I had known to just skip this book and not waste a credit just because I didn’t want to miss anything for the next book (because Dan Abnett is the man).

Great story, so/so character building.

Loved the story. I just had a hard time connecting with the characters due to (imho) the short span of their introduction and background. I guess I just got used to the character development from the first few books in the series. Overall a great read/listen. Would highly recommend for fans of 40k lore and any sci-fi fantasy lovers. The last chapter... man...

drawn out

most of the book is the foundation of the main character, the last third build up quickly and it all ends leaving you feeling hungry and hollow.

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.
