Publisher's Summary

Ezekyle Abaddon and his warlords strive to bind the newborn Black Legion together under threat of destruction. Now Khayon, as Abaddon's most-trusted assassin, is tasked with ending the threat of Thagus Daravek, the self-proclaimed Lord of Hosts - a rival to the Ezekyle's final fate.

Fighting the vile whispers of the Dark Gods within his mind, Abaddon turns a fevered gaze back to the Imperium, where his destiny awaits. Yet the Emperor's Champion and his Black Templars stand guard at the gates of Hell, and Sigismund has waited centuries to face Abaddon in battle.

Fantastic Story

If you could sum up Black Legion: Warhammer 40,000 in three words, what would they be?

Chaos is Cool

What was one of the most memorable moments of Black Legion: Warhammer 40,000?

When they first come upon someone from the Imperium after a thousand years in the warp and realize that the Emperor is now worshiped as a God. They start laughing when they realize that the Word Bearers won after all.

What does Jonathan Keeble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

We does a wonderful job with his voicework

"WE ARE RETURNED"

ADB and Jonathan Keeble do it again in this phenomenal sequel to "The Talon of Horus". I cannot recommend this enough to fans of Chaos. 8.5/10

Another winner

I've read a great deal of black library, been playing warhammer for nearly 20 years, and Dembski-Bowden has to be one of the best

perfect book and telling with 1 small weirdness

everything was perfect except how the pronouncing of abbadons first name. in book 1 they use a different pronunciation than in the second. that was the only flaw I noticed.

Great book

My only problem is the lack of diversity when it comes to the voices, too many characters just sound monsters

Excellent follow up book

Second book in the series, not quite as good as the first, but a damned good sequel. It has its good points all the way through, but didn't quite give the same feeling as the first. I really did cling to the characters in the first, but not so much in this story. That being said its still a hell of a book and worth a listen 9/10

A deeper insight into the Black Legion

As with the first book, a very well written and compelling story that gives an interesting and in depth look at the beginning of the Black Legion.

Aaron Demski-Bowden does a great job of conveying the tragedy that has befallen both the Traitors and the Imperium itself. Both of which have become a shadow of what they were before the Horus Heresy.

Great, even for loyalists.

Despite reading Warhammer 40k for years now I've always avoided novels focusing on the Traitors. Yes, even The Night Lords books which every fan tells me are amazing. I picked this up more for the fact that Sigismund and the Black Templars were mentioned in the description. Despite, Abaddon and the Black Legion being the obvious focus the narrative still managed to fairly portray both sides and, dare I say it, actually made understand the Traitors point of view. The fight between the first High Marshal and the Warmasters sucessor was as intense as you would expect. A must listen (or read) for any 40k fan. And yes now I'm going to find the Night Lords Omnibus.

Definitely worth a listen

I have a on , off relationship with the black library. There are some good and some awful , this thankfully is the former. An enjoyable book that keeps you wanting to listen.

Superb!

Aaron is on form, as usual. Not many can write for Chaos as well as him! And Jonathan Keeble’s voice really brings everything to life! Perfect book to follow up the Talon Of Horus.
