Fantastic

Great Book, narrated masterfully. As a science fiction lover I have high standards, this has met them in most areas and surpassed them in a few others.

The Music in-between parts of the book is way too

The Music in-between parts of the book is way too loud, had to take off head phones at parts of the audio book because of this.

Volume balance

Balance the volume. The musical interludes are blaring compared to the narration.
Otherwise a great performance.

We are once again the Luna Wolves!

The great betrayal. A few suprises and some very memorable moments on Istvaan 3 give insight into the strength of the bonds of these brothers in arms. I found myself clenching my fist and quietly cheering on Garviel during the incidents on the ground.

loved it.

A well written epic tale that plays at deep universal human issues of honor, bravery and betrayal.

Slow start but solid drama at end

After listening to an excellent book 1 and a very decent book 2, I initially struggled with the third book as the author's power of description was less compelling for me, little dialogue or drama. This was a shame as I had gotten to like the central characters and the dilemmas they had been facing but the book significantly improves after the first half dozen chapters.

thoughts become actions

was good, the build up in the previous novels is what made you connect with the characters, the heresy I kept thinking back to from the next book and I keep thinking back to understand this. It's a good title to listen to in the car, this is where the line is crossed. I write this as I'm finishing the next book. if you are a fan of 40k you will enjoy this

3 books in and loving this series so far

As the third installment in the Horus Heresy series, Galaxy in Flames brings several story arches to a head in a dramatic and satisfying conclusion.

The book is also wonderfully narrated by Toby Longworth.

Great book!

it was a great listen I only wish that the betrayal would have lasted longer

it was a bit to straight forward in my opinion, thoo it didnt take away from an otherwise great experience

Carnage of Betrayal

Saddening downwards spiral of brothers betraying one another, and the realization of everything the characters know being turned against them. Beautiful proformance by Toby Longworth from start to finish, realizing the true emotion of each of the characters.

Narration is first class

This book is a great example of Gritty SciFi set in the Warhammer universe. A “conclusion” to the arc started in Horus Rising.

Tony Longworth’s narration is brilliant and helps lift the text into audio art.

Shorter then the others, but still good.

My only real criticism is that it's several chapters shorter then the previous books, but despite that it was awesome.
