Publisher's Summary

Recalled from the Great Crusade after Ullanor, Rogal Dorn and the VIIth Legion were appointed as the Emperor's praetorians - but only after the Warmaster's treachery was revealed did the full extent of that sacred duty become apparent.

Now, the Solar System comes under attack for the first time since the war began, and many of the seemingly impregnable defences wrought by the Imperial Fists prove inadequate. With all eyes fixed firmly upon this new threat beyond the gates of Terra, who in turn will protect Dorn from the enemy within?

Bad file

Bad recording. Frequently cut out and was incomprehensible at times. The parts I did hear were very good.

not the end, but maybe the beginning of the end

The enemy are at the gates and amongst the loyal. They are here, have always been here. Its the way they fight, the alpha legion have planned for every contingent, anticipated every angle, devised every move.... that is except for Rogal Dorn. This is as good a book that has ever come out of a board game. There's intrigue, action, and character. The horus heresy can be a money grubbing mess at times, but this one stands out like a Ruby in Dorns armor.

Strap in and fortify your position.

Alpha Legion Explored

Great story that sheds light on Rogal Dorn but also examines the Alpha Legion at many levels

I am Alpharius?

Awesome spy story and background, never much cared for Dorn until now and the book puts the events of Legion into perspective, in that Alpha Legion is losing their minds. Book description didn't do this one justice, not what was expected and that's for the better. Easily somewhere in top ten for the series.

wow

I really really really liked this story. the narration is excellent. the story arcs are well crafted and have nice connections and call backs to earlier books. if you've put a lot of effort into the HH series you'll find a lot of that rewarded in this book.

I highly recommend this book. I'm not big on reading all of the anthologies for HH and I tend to skip them. I prefer longer stories like this one that develop long term story paths.

Heavy Bolter Porn with a Great Climax!

The story started off with a lot of descriptive description and not a lot of dialogue...but flourished into deep characters and relationships. Brilliant down to the very last word. Stay for the after credits.

One of the best in the series

This ranks with the First Heretic, The Flight of the Eisenstein and Vengeful Spirit as one of the best books in the entire series. Brilliant pacing, engaging story and believable characters that one can empathise with. This is the second book I have heard Jonathan Keeble narrate, and he is a brilliant voice actor whose narration is second to none. Masterful!

dull as sin

i really struggled with this one.
the narration by jonathan Keeble is top notch as always but i found the story itself to be dull and sin and a real slog.
if youre super into 7th or 20th legion it may be the right thing for you but it was jot my cup of tea.
