Description

After the horrors of Istvaan V, Horus declares outright war against the Imperium. In the shadows of the Emperor's Palace, powerful figures convene.

Their plan is to send a team of assassins to execute the arch-traitor Horus and end the war for the galaxy of mankind before it's even begun. But what they cannot know is that another assassin is abroad already, with his sights firmly set on killing the Emperor.

Skip this:Fluffy filler that amounts to nothing

As an audiobook this is fine. Perhaps an overuse of Russian accents but the read is fine. The story itself is not worth your time. There are two plotlines about assassins from both sides of the conflict that are completely unrelated. In the book, these stories constantly interrupt each other and mess up the pacing before coming together to neutralize each other. And it's not that these assassins must inevitably meet, just as Horus must inevitably and purposefully face the Emperor, they meet by pure luck *cough*Emperor'sWill*cough*. If this book was never written, nothing you know about 40k would be different and it does nothing to further the events of the Horus Heresy. It adds little to pre-existing lore outside of some vague ideas about life on Terra or the origins of the Assassinorum. The characters are one dimensional. The action lacks stakes and therefore turns into descriptive filler of nothing we haven't seen before in 40k. Fights exist only to make the assassins seem powerful but don't further the plot. Any personal conflict is bland and ultimately pointless as it too is never resolved or adds to character depth.
What's good: The beginning is good. Differences of philosophy of waging war of Dorn v. the Assassinorum. The intrigue of the Assassinorum. The initial mystery until the killer is immediately revealed too soon and lacks any plot impact. The initial getting the team together (as an idea). In terms of execution of this part, it just drags and in the end, the assassins lack any form of team dynamic other than mutual dislike (which doesn't change) so it becomes just filler. This would have been better as a short story that was just about the assassins.

View of assassins

It’s a good look at all the different houses of assassins which is great. However the story itself is not great by itself.

Goes No Where

This was interesting as far as seeing how the Officio Assassinorum works. Outside of that I really can't recommend this. The plots were somewhat confusing, planet hoping every chapter. I also honestly didn't connect with a single character in the entire book, and there are a lot of them. There are several plot points I can only imagine were supposed to be emotional, but they fell flat due to the lack of personalities.

The narrator did his best though, maybe over acting for some parts. If it wasn't for being and audio book I'd have probably put this down before the half way point.

Good book

Only problem is that the section blocks have absolutely no break between them, and the narrator may begin new section and I have no idea and have to adjust.

Good listen

Great audiobook for listening to during long trips. Plenty of recognizeable as well as interesting lore from Warhammer Horus Heresy. The voice actor did a great job choosing different character voices.
