Under the command of the newly appointed Warmaster Horus, the Great Crusade continues. Fulgrim, Primarch of the Emperor's Children, leads his warriors into battle against a vile alien foe, unaware of the darker forces that have already set their sights upon the Imperium of Man.

Loyalties are tested and every murderous whim indulged as the Emperor's Children take their first steps down the road to true corruption - a road that will ultimately lead them to the killing fields of Isstvan V....

Not my favorite, but maybe the best of the Horus Heresy.

I don't like the emperor's children or many of their characters to begin with, and this book made me dislike them more. They were prancing dandies shouting perfection perfection etc.

But! This book embraced all those annoying, offsetting, decadent, and offensive traits to make the reader hate then more and more as the book goes on. The imagery is truly top tier and while I don't like the focus of the book, it rivals Eisenhorn and Gaunt in quality. A must read if you are going through the Horus Heresy. It ties the last two books together neatly while telling its own descent into madness. And much less Lucius than the last three books. I hate that guy lol.
And David Timson did a great job too, characters were easy to tell apart.

Great Narration, okay story

What did you love best about Fulgrim?

The dropsite massacre, being so iconic in the heresy, is portrayed for the first time and is really quite incredible.

Would you be willing to try another book from Graham McNeill? Why or why not?

Absolutely, while Fulgrim wasn't my favourite book of his, I have read others and consider Graham McNeill to be amongst the best Black Library authors there are

Which character – as performed by David Timson – was your favorite?

I quite liked the portrayal of Eldrad Ulthran. I was curious as to how he would pull off the voice of the Eldar and I believe he did it justice

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The Istvaan V dropsite Massacre and the beheading of Ferrus Mannus

Any additional comments?

I liked the character of Fulgrim before reading this book, and now he is one of my least favourite traitor primarchs. I'm not sure what that says about the book, though.

Rough beginning for narrator

For the first 5 or so hours I was zoning out or lost. No matter the situation the narrator sounded like he was narrating a water buffalo wandering around in some national geographic show with no emotion. The voices all sounded the same I couldn't tell who was talking. I ended up stopping for the day and when I started it again he seemed to get a better rythem although I did find myself zoning out occasionally.

Really Enjoyed It

I'm completely new to the world of Warhammer, and the long trip through the Horus Heresy has been great.

I felt this book had a great spin on the events and it was genuinely interesting to listen to the downfall of Fulgrim.

Although this book circles around the same events at times, this was a fresh installment to keep me invested in the series.

Definitely recommend.

Slow start, but it gets intense.

both the book and the narrator take a bit to find their stride. at first, he story is quite slow to build and the narrator sounded like he was narrating a nature program.

however, in the latter half of the Book, the story goes from 0 to 100 and an instant. The narrator's performance mirrors the pace as well.

Nature documentary

The reader sounds like a nature document in tv and the book it self spends a tad too much time beating around the bush.

Chilling and Good

The writer and reader earn their pay here with a grim account of a mighty warrior's fall to darkness. Not for the faint of heart but very well done.

A good book badly read

After the first 4 volumes of the Horus Heresy, this came as a real challenge.
The narrator obviously doesn't understand the dark dystopian atmosphere of WD40K.
Or maybe he just doesn't care.. often I got the impression that he didn't even bother to read the text beforehand.
The story itself has so much potential...
But David Timson reads it as just another heroic tale with lots of darring do in exotic locales.

Reader hampers the fun

The fifth book of the Horus Heresy series follows the Emperors Children and the slow descent of madness they find themselves spiralling into after defeating a xenos race. It would be a great listen, however it is strongly hampered by the speaker. David Timson does in no way do a bad job at reading this, I just feel like the tone in which he reads is completely inapropriate for this kind of material. When describing the vile madness aboard the starship and within the expedition his voice always has a whimsical, joyous quality to it that would be more appropriate for a childrens story or a YA novel. The Warhammer universe has always had a somewhat riddicoulus quality to it, however I always found that easy to ignore and give myself into stories of advanced supermen fighting to cleanse the galaxy of xenos filth in the name of the emperor. This is made extremely hard though when you can not shake the feeling that the reader always seems to have a smile on his lips and is reading it in a voice more appropriate for childrens stories. Again, no offense intended here, his actual reading is very good just the tone of it does not fit the story that is told. Consider purchasing the book and reading it for yourself, if you are too lazy to do that be prepared for an illfitting voice acor.
