    Description

    A Horus Heresy character novel.

    Constantin Valdor is the chief of the Emperor's Custodian Guard and is among the closest of His companions. As the wars of Unity come to their end, Constantin faces his greatest challenge, as dark deeds are required to pave Mankind's road to the stars.

    Listen to It Because:

    Delve into the era of the Unification Wars and discover Constantin Valdor's role in bringing about the Imperium of Mankind in an unmissable novel by Chris Wraight!

    The Story:

    Constantin Valdor. It is a name that brings forth images of heroism, honour and peerless duty. For it is he who commands the will of the Legio Custodes that most esteemed and dedicated cadre of elite warriors. He is the Emperor’s sword, His shield, His banner and he knows no equal. Clad in shining auramite, his fist clenched around the haft of his Guardian Spear, he is the bulwark against all enemies of the throne, within or without. Nearing the end of the wars of Unity, Valdor’s courage and purpose is put to the test as never before. The petty warlords and tyrants of Old Earth have been all but vanquished, and the Emperor’s armies are triumphant. What now for the nascent Imperium and what fate for its forgotten soldiers, its Thunder Warriors and armies of Unity? A new force is rising, one which shall eclipse all others and open the way to the stars. But change on Terra is seldom bloodless, and for progress to be ensured darker deeds are necessary. 

    Written by Chris Wraight. Narrated by Steven Pacey, Jonathon Keeble, Katy Maw and Toby Longworth.

    Can Chris Wraight please have a team of lore nerds

    I get very conflicted with Chris Wraights books because they are well written by themselves but the are not consistent with the greater 30k/40k lore. In this book we get a lot of good lore but then suddenly we’re told that the legions had their icons before finding their primarchs? Also apparently the emperor thought of the primarchs as sons? Those two things not only are out of character but they have books that address those issues. I get wanting to hint at the dark angels helping with the conflict but anyone who knows 30k will know that a Roman numeral 1 on the pauldron would be more of a name drop than the legion heraldry. Overall kinda annoyed/ disappointed because it was good up until the last 2-3 chapters where all this happened.

    No revelations, just an awesome story

    While most of us already know the beginning of the Imperium proper: end of the Thunder Warriors, the Primarch project, the Legions it's nice to have a character perspective about these events in finer detail, especially through Constantine Valdor.

    It was okay

    Honestly was hoping for more about Valdor and have the book actually be about him instead of the slew of other characters who got far more attention I feel. I honestly feel the title is somewhat misleading to those wanting to know more about the man, rather than whats given in this one.

    Well done. I was hoping for more lore.

    I was hoping for more Lore about the old battles, a discription of the battle between the thunder warrior and the custodes. I didn't learn anything I didn't already know. I wish more artistic licence was used towards the character development. The only real character with a story were ultimately inconsequential.

    excellent.

    I loved it because one of the most hated characters in all of 40K is finally cast down from her Summit and portrayed as the villain she rightly is.

    wooow! Amazed and I want more!

    Excellent narration and performance. As is the norm for black library works. The story was great. Very enlightening. I would advise not to introduce some to the grim dark with this however. A great book though for fans and players of 40k 30k and any one who loves the lore especially.

    Very illuminating

    This was a great 40k book. I prefer 40k books that are lighter on the bolter action and provide more perspective on the characters and their motivations. This book did a great job of showing the motivarions behind Valdor and his work. A few morsels of new lore as well. You really get a feel for who Valdor is. If you like 30k books, this is a great one.

    Not a lot of Valdor for a book called Valdor

    This book has the same problem that some of the Primarch novels do, where it features the title character but is mainly focused on someone else. Wraight is a good author and this is not exception, but the story is mainly centered around a High Lord, a gene scientist and then another Custode. While Valdor is in it, and does have some good moments, I would be prepared for the majority of this book to not have Valdor in it. If the book was just titled "Birth of the Imperium" it would remove my complaint, but having Valdors name in the title is a little deceptive and doesn't help manage expectations going into it

    40K Never Disappoints

    I always love a good history lesson and the Black Library consistently delivers. For the Emperor!

    Uninteresting

    I think its a rather boring audiobook. Valdor is not the main actor. He is not very interesting nor is his development within the novel or in the background described.

    The voice actor is not to blame. He does a decent job.

    Einfach mal wieder ein schöner Hintergrund...

    ... Der manch eine Frage beantwortet, die seit längerem im Raum stand. Für Leute die an der Entstehung des Imperiums interessiert sind zu empfehlen.
