Publisher's Summary

Created in the Emperor's own image, the primarchs had long thought themselves to be princes of the universe and masters of their own destiny - they led the Space Marine Legions in glorious conquest of the galaxy, and no enemy of the Imperium could stand against them. However, even amongst this legendary brotherhood, the seeds of dissent had been sown long before the treacherous Warmaster Horus declared his grand heresy.

Find out the deepest mysteries of the primarchs. Who is in control of Fulgrim's body - him, or a daemon? What happens when the Alpha Legion fights against itself? Just what secrets is the Lion keeping? And what could the tragic Ferrus Manus have done to prevent himself from becoming a head shorter?

Mixed bag

Four novellas centered around different primarchs. The first two are trash, the third average and the fourth excellent. Only recommended for dedicated fans of the series. Otherwise, borrow from a friend if possible.

Last Story Was Good

I found the first two stories disappointing. The last story was an Alpha Legion story and it was well done. As always, the narrators were exceptional.

Disappointing to say the least

Having enjoyed at least a dozen of the other Horus Heresy (audio) books, I gave this a try. The first story in the anthology (about Fulgrim) wasn't bad, but left me with more questions than answers. The second story about Ferrus Manus was difficult going, not very exciting and difficult to connect with the characters (unlike other HH stories) and you actually end up thinking that FM was incompetent and you lose sympathy.. The third story about The Lion although slow to get started was actually very good, but ended too quickly - just when it was really getting good. The fourth story, about the Alpha Legion, was terrible (I haven't even finished it, I can't and will be sending it back under the good listen guarantee) - the performance is monotonous and a chapter goes by without even realising it. It's painful listening and a real shame because I've spent the last 8 months listening to Horus Heresy novels almost everyday.

strange order of books

it seems strange that the first two books aren't the other way around as events in the second are mentioned in the first. good storey overall and well performed too. well worth a credit with such a long run tine and several stories to enjoy in one purchase.
