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?

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 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.

A masterpiece in storytelling!

I'm new to the Warhammer 40,000 universe. I'm amazed by the quality of the narratives written for a tabletop game. These books outshine those of most others in their depth. I can't wait to listen to the rest of this series.

Not as excellent as the first book but still good

The first book built the world of Warhammer 40k up great for the second book to plot and scheme for the destruction of that world... throne! I need context as to why this shift happens! I'm missing vital information. The third book best clear this up by the emperor! I'm having too much fun with this review. XD

A fantastic sequel to the hh books.

The story really takes off in this sequel to the first book. Hope and new faith is also borne from the darkness.

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

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.

Good but not as good as Horus Rising

Horus Rising was a great introduction and self contained story at the same time, this felt more like a set up for the next book rather than it's own story.

A fantastic continuation

Gripping and a brilliant continuation of the origin of Horus' downfall. I'd rank it a little below Horus Rising, but then some elements are absolutely superb so it's tricky. The sequence on Davin is spectacular and I'm really growing to know the characters so well. Ending is the only bit where I feel things have changed a little too quick, but don't want to spoil anything

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.
