Fantastic

Great Book, narrated masterfully. As a science fiction lover I have high standards, this has met them in most areas and surpassed them in a few others.

Fantastic book, best in the series so far!

The battle descriptions in this book are amazing and the story is gripping. I didn't want to turn it off and had to pry myself away to get anything done.

best series of books ever

I absolutely adored each a every book in this series
Toby Longworth's voice is absolutely golden

Don't listen with headphones

The music is unnecessarily much louder than the narration. I regret even spending money on this junk.

Great plot/continuation

This book does a great job continuing the plot in a way that keeps you listening wondering how it will end.

somehow this series keeps getting better

This is honestly my favorite edition so far, with so many building events in a shocking climax that keeps barreling forward! improving from every issue I had with the last few this book removes the blatant sexism, reinforces characters and just keeps you listening!

Head deeper into the heresy.

Another amazing performance that brings you deeper and deeper into the story of the horus heresy. Everything, from plot to pace, performance and character development on a par with the best Sci fi books and audio stories out there. Highly recommended.

A great conclusion to books 1 & 2

The narrator's performance has improved from book 1 as he has gotten into the characters.

Another month to find out more, really?

Lacks for some meaningful dialogue; perhaps some "where did it all go wrong?" philosophising between the loyalists, something that would make the protagonists - into whom we have invested over twenty-four hours - more human, and thus their murders more tragic.

Shorter then the others, but still good.

My only real criticism is that it's several chapters shorter then the previous books, but despite that it was awesome.
