Publisher's Summary

The Great Crusade that has taken humanity into the stars continues. The Emperor of Mankind has handed the reins of command to his favoured son, the Warmaster Horus. Yet all is not well in the armies of the Imperium.

Horus is still battling against the jealousy and resentment of his brother primarchs, and when he is injured in combat on the planet Davin, he must also battle his inner daemon. With all the temptations that Chaos has to offer, can the weakened Horus resist?

Great Series Decent Book

This book moves a little slow in the beginning but man does it pick up. I am reading this series for a second time AMAZING even still knowing what happens. The detail these authors put into their work is just top notch.

From loyal to heretical, no matter what the cost.

Almost every interesting idea is squandered by the poor writing. Nothing is setup properly: The actions of the supporting characters almost always feel forced. Major plot shifts are marked by an almost comical over reaction. The author clearly knew where he wanted to be at the end of the book, but he had no clue how to there. Leading to a book I can only recommend to fans who REALLY want to read the Horus Heresy to completion. Otherwise skip this book, seriously.

Superb performace!!!

I read "Horus Rising" and loved every bit of it. Unfortunately, life has been busy and I haven't had much time to read. I purchased "False Gods" on Audible, so I could continue with the series. Toby Longworth has given an amazing performance. His narration is one of the best I have ever listened to. I was glad to see that Longworth is the narrator throughout the series. I am looking forward to listening to the rest of the series.

Fans of Warhammer won't be disappointed

Toby Longworth does an excellent job of taking you into the action as the Warmaster Horus begins his ascent.

Great and unfortunate story.

This second story in the Horus Heresy series was shockingly fantastic, I was riveted and always looked forward to getting back to it. I highly recommend it.

terrific addition

terrific book, understandable motives, well written characters and just good fun. I knew what was gonna happen with the horus heresy just from being a 40k fan and this book kept me on my toes and keeping me guessing!

Entertaining but fell short of what I hoped for

A great performance but unfortunately the story was lacking and clumsy. Horus Uprising did an amazing job at setting the scene of the Horus Heresy with amazing character development that really emersed you into the world however while the story of False God's is a good one, it's a little ham-fisted in its delivery with actions and story lines being dropped in just to fulfil the ultimate arc rather than seeming logical and consistent with the characters developed in the first book

Excellent

Toby Longworth brings this story to life! This a really enjoyable series, even for for those like me who have only a passing acquaintance with the Warhammer 40,000 universe.

A strong installement of the series

Excellent narration. Overall the story continues marvelously. During one crucial point I felt as though element of the story were left out, something was missing. This did not mar my appreciation of the book and I finished it in good stead.

Excellent story

If you liked the last book narrated by the same narrator, Toby Longworth you surely will not be disappointed. The story is grimmer and darker than the first book.

I found myself unable to stop until I was finished with the book in just merely 3 sessions.

Amazing

I actually dont know very much about the Horus Heresy and just listening to this series so far it appears to me to be a realistic look at how unions can break down and how them small steps can lead to a cataclysmic civil war like that depicted in the Horus Heresy. So far the performance is really impressive too which makes it that much more enjoyable.

Another great entry

Following on from Dan Abnett’s fantastic ‘Horus Rising’ Graham McNeill delivers the next chapter of the Horus heresy and the story of how Horus fell to the powers of chaos
Been very very impressed by this series and can not wait to continue

The plot thickens.....

A great follow up and we see the warmaster fall and then begin his betrayal of the emperor. Well written and builds the tension in the series nicely ready for the next book.
