Description

Since the earliest days of the Great Crusade, Sanguinius - angelic primarch of the IXth Legion - was ever among the closest and most loyal of Horus' brothers. But the Blood Angels have long kept their true nature hidden from the rest of the Imperium, and when the Warmaster hints that the key to their salvation may lie in the ruins of a conquered world, the sons of Sanguinius race to claim it.

Now, as the revelation of their betrayal dawns and the traitors' hand is revealed, the Blood Angels must face all the warp-spawned armies of Chaos, as well their own personal daemons, upon the blasted plains of Signus Prime....

Not the best

Definitely one of the least interesting of the Horus Heresy titles I've read. The narrator's silly voices are a bit too much, especially the voice he gives Sanguinius. The story is fine, but flatly good vs evil. Blood angels stumble around beleaguered by demons invoked by Horus. Horus only appears as a psychic ghost twirling his mustache and channeling Palpatine from Star Wars. This is the only book I've read about Sanguinius and it makes him seem incredibly inept and impotent.

Skip this one.

I love 40k and have listened to dozens of these audiobooks. At its best the lore is gripping, at its worst it’s a slog. This was painful to get through. This and Devastation of Baal have altogether ruined the Blood Angels for me. Normally a book that centers so much on a Primarch is bound to be interesting, but this depiction of Sanguinius is us being told how great and noble he is, without giving giving us material to inspire that opinion within us. Authors like ADB have made previously derpy Primarchs like Lorgar and Angron really compelling characters. This was just eminently forgettable, I was waiting for it to be over. And while I normally respect Gareth Armstrong’s level of vocal acting very much, this was perhaps the work of his I’ve enjoyed the least. His Slaaneshi demon was cringeworthy, and not in the good way. Again he’s a great talent, if you do listen to this please don’t judge him by this work.

Interesting premise let down by narrative

Can be summed up as a story with an interesting premise that sets the stage for a mysterious conflict against an unknown supernatural enemy that is ultimately let down by the the author revealing all the cards to the reader, then inexplicably discarding the aspects of the story that built the mysterious and ethereal setting in favor of just slamming 2 armies into each other and shifting to a reliance on contrived plot points which felt very arbitrary to me. Most of the characters are pretty 1-dimensional (arguably this changes for a few at the very end, but its kinda too late by then) and several plot holes become apparent as you progress. For example, how tough the bad guys are at different points in the narrative seems to be largely based on how the author needed to use them as plot devices at that point rather than there actually being a logical reason in the narrative. Or there is a certain tool/capability employed by the antagonists that is super effective, but after its first use we inexplicably never see it again, as if its existence wasnt considered holistically in the narrative, but rather purely as a way to achieve a certain plot point. Its not all bad. If you are interested in the blood angels this book does give you a good understanding of their general backstory particularly relating to their genetic flaw, the red thirst. Sanguinius, though not brilliantly written, is at least the most interesting blood angels character here, having a few specific good moments that highlight his noble aspects as well as his flaws. If you just want to delve into the Blood Angels and learn more about them and their culture, this could be worth reading. just dont expect to be emotionally hooked by the plot or characters.

Best so far.

Best story of the heresy so far. Action packed and filled with the minions of chaos.

Decent story, silly narrator

The story was decent, but not as great as some of the other books. The narrator has a good normal voice, but acting as the primarch and the demons sound so silly.

Essential HH Reading

This book is THE blood angels book of the series, and is a deep dive into the 9th legion and Sanguineous. Swallow captures vivid imagery and a deep sense of unease that makes you want to keep listening. Be warned, you WILL find yourself unable to stop listening as the characters captivate you. One of my favorite books in the series and delivered with a wonderful performance by Gareth Armstrong.

Up there with the best of the Horus Heresy

This one is thrilling. It's the first time we really get a deep look at the Blood Angels and really doesn't disappoint. Fear to Tread starts off teasing you about what is coming, and the ending is a wild ride.

Good Introduction to the Blood Angels

A Blood Angels 40k novel introduced me to the Warhammer 40k universe many years ago, so this was nice introduction story for them in the HH storyline. I feel like it could have gone a little deeper into their culture and customs, but there’s only so much you can find within a single book. All in all it’s a good intro to the legion, it’s primarch, and what makes them tick. Some parts of the story were a little hard to understand for me but I felt invested in the story overall. I’d recommend.

A Must Listen for Fans

Mild spoilers ahead: As Always a great Voice reading it. And as Always more depth for the Marines and Primarchs we know. A battle that is fought with Bolter and carmine Blade. A Battle fought with psiker and psychology Betrayals good and bad. And as is fitting for a Tale of Angels and Daemons: a battle fought on the Plane of the soul, the heart and the very character. It might not be one of the Best Heresy Novels, but it is definitely a great one - for its ambitious task alone. It only falls short with some of the characterisations and the shift from interpersonal to mythological drama... here its gears grind but to me at least deliberately enough to convey the feelings of the characters thrown into hell to defend themselves. And only looking back I realised how different the first Half turned out compared to the second. In the end no one can say he won. And if... only a pyrrhic victory, payed for in Blood, Faith and Ideals, all now spent, leaving everyone compromised. Biggest Plus gets the Epilogue - for a punishment long time coming. Next stop: The Unremembered Empire...
