Publisher's Summary

As the Horus Heresy divides the Imperium, Corax and his few remaining Raven Guard escape the massacre at Isstvan V. Tending to their wounds, the bloodied Space Marines endeavour to replenish their numbers and return to the fray, taking the fight to the traitor Warmaster.

Distraught at the crippling blow dealt to his Legion, Corax returns to Terra to seek the aid of his father - the Emperor of Mankind. Granted access to ancient secrets, Corax begins to rebuild the Raven Guard, planning his revenge against his treacherous brother primarchs. But not all his remaining warriors are who they appear to be.

The mysterious Alpha Legion have infiltrated the survivors and plan to destroy the Raven Guard before they can rebuild and threaten Horus's plans.

Great listen

Thoroughly enjoyed Deliverence Lost. Gareth Armstrong was great as always. The Alpha Legion are a favorite. Gav brings a perfect balance of intrigue and action to the story. A favorite in the Horus Heresy so far.

Spy vs spy

I was wondering when the ravenguard and alphas were gonna go toe to toe (in a manner of speaking). Awesome story as always. Great narration. Two thumbs up.

exceptional book for the Horus heresy series

this book was well-written and the storyline was thoroughly thought-through before being placed down in pain. overlapping stories Espionage and secrecy was great. Had me guessing who is who and there's several surprises at the end that I did not see coming. Very good book, well written all around

Quote the Raven

It is a good story allowing one to understand where the Ravenguard came from and how they are during the heresy.

A great Horus Heresy novel for fans of the Alpha Legion and Raven Guard

This has always been a favourite HH novel of mine. A nice change of pace from pitched battles between the Legions, this is almost a spy thriller with the Alpha Legion’s infiltration of the Raven Guard and Kiavahr plus learning bits about the Primarch Project on Terra. I still never quite remember which of the Raven Guard characters are ‘Alpharius’ so it always leave me guessing. I felt some of the voices didn’t quite land for me but that may just be because I have not listened to this narrator much before. Overall a great story.

Poor voice acting lets down a reasonable story.

The story is fine enough, you may as well listen to it if you're following the horus heresy series. I'd skip it if you're cherry picking the good ones.

The voice acting let it down with almost all the marines being nasally, one very camp (like comedically so) marine and dark and brooding means talk slowly and quietly in a low voice. A lot of punctuation /phrasing issues that I'm fairly sure we're the narrator more so than the author.

Good not great

Narration was very good but I may well be over saturated with heresy audiobooks as I’m a getting a sense of deja vu with every book I now listen to, Corax, the Emperor and a Alpha legion were entertaining but too much unnecessary fillers

Plotholes a Landraider could drive through.

Gav Thorpe is not a writer worth wasting time on. I've done everything to avoid his books but had to buy this one in order to get all HH books. Sadly I could have saved my money because almost nothing is contributed to the HH story.

What a read!

What a delicious spectacle of espionage and subterfuge. Deliverance Lost keeps the reader on their toes throughout, not knowing what will happen next!

Better than expected

Have listened to several books now in the HH series and only started this one because I was curious what would happen to the Raven Guard after the Istvaan massacre.

I'm not a fan of Corax and the Raven Guard as a chapter (and I still ain't), but the book positively surprised me.

I really liked the story and the introduction of the Alpha Legion into it. I skipped "Legion" in the HH series but I might go back to it after this book.

The last few hours were full of suspense as the climax grew. I'm not that deep into 30k lore yet so I genuinely didn't know what would happen.

As neither a fan of the Alpha Legion nor the Raven Guard I genuinely enjoyed the story. Learning a bit more about the primarchs and their geneseed and getting a glimpse of Terra.

The narration wasn't bad, but it wasnt distracting. I've heard better voice actors and the voices Gareth uses are sometimes very confusing and weren't really pulling me into the characters. The setting, mood and atmosphere created by the writer did. With "Fulgrim" I had a lot of problems finishing the book due to the performance of the narrator even though the story was good, I might have dragged that book over a few weeks to finish it. Here it was just a slight inconvenience and I finished listening it in three sessions.

I came here for Alpha Legion action

And I was not disappointed! I really enjoyed this audiobook and definitely think it’s worth a listen. Lots of internet people riled up about this one for some reason, but I loved it.

below average novel read expertly

Gav Thorpe need to stop writing for black library. The 3rd or 4th book of his that has disappointed me. He has good ideas but seriously lacks when it comes to executing plot and narrative. Kebbel managed to make this chapter of the Horus heresy bareably

Wings on the battlefield

I would say i had mixed feelings here, but mostly because Corax was a new Primarch for me. However, i like him and the story mixes in with a most unexpected event that goes quite good hand in hand.

This book is hard to express a review about without giving things away, but it is quite soothing, and it has a bit of a slower pace in my opinion. The core of the story is a very important one, and you should have some basic form of knowledge about the founding days first to appreciate it fully.

Overall, a good book for a night in the couch with a coffee and a candle light.

A great book

Easily one of the best books of the series so far. The writer did a great job of conveying exactly what and how the raven guard operate and I thoroughly enjoyed it

I wanted to like this more

I like the Raven Guard. There were quite a few times I like this audio book for them too. Sadly it's not as good as other titles in the series. Still some important back story to the Raven Guard and the Horus Heresy but many parts drag on.
