Publisher's Summary

Imperium Secundus lies revealed as a heretical folly. Terra has not fallen, though it remains inaccessible. Sanguinius, Guilliman and the Lion El’Johnson, the primarchs of the Triumvirate, must reach Terra at all costs. They seek to defend the Emperor and to atone for their sins.

But the Ruinstorm, a galaxy-wide maelstrom of chaos, hides the Throneworld from the primarchs. Now the fleets of three Legions depart Macragge, and the primarchs will stop at nothing to overcome the Ruinstorm. Yet an insidious enemy watches their every move, and plots against the weaknesses of the errant sons of the Emperor. Each has his own inner storm, and each marches towards his own ruin.

One of the worst book in HH series.

Was buying all HH books... Up to this point DA ones and Batttle for the Abyss were the worst books in this series, but I think this one can compete with them. If you do not read/listen to this book you are not going to miss anything. The story was as primitive as it can be... Very poor depiction of primarchs.

A very enjoyable book to hear

It was my first book with such a duration and I really enjoyed it. I heard it with breaks but always it took me seconds to get back to the climate of horus heresy and on what this book was all about

Sentence after sentence of hyperbole.

Whilst the overall story of the book was good and tied some loose ends up, the execution was very poor. Every line was over the top, so when it got to some climaxes I was underwhelmed. the author forgets that less is more, and that the characters make the books compelling. the narrator was fantastic yet again. Final plot view without spoilers: the end with Kurze didn't make sense from a military standpoint even with the emphasis on fate.

Honestly found it quite boring and not gripping.

Struggled with this book. I love the Horus Heresy Series but this one is my least favourite, feeling like its just pushing action down your throat for no reason other than action. I think it's the pacing I have issue with.

Good but quite overflowing with hyperbole

A lot of good and a lot of dull hyperbole. You definitely have to be on the right mood in order to fully enjoy this book. All in all a solid part of the whole.

A forgettable Odyssey

A somewhat stumbling journey of three Primarchs banging into daemonic obstacles over and over till a final battle.

A couple of good moments, and some decent fluff reveals for Blood Angels fans, but the story was pretty dull IMO. A story with three Primarchs and it was lacking character and excitement.

If you enjoy the random "Its the warp, this is crazy but go with it" over and over that the HH series seems to love lately, you might enjoy it more than me.
