Publisher's summary

A Horus Heresy audiobook anthology

When Horus rebelled against the Emperor, the ensuing civil war nearly destroyed the Imperium. War raged across galaxy, resulting in a struggle where death was the only victor.

Listen to it because:

Events from the Great Crusade and the early days of the Heresy are explored in a series of short stories covering the Space Wolves, Word Bearers, World Eaters, Dark Angels, Sisters of Silence, Custodian Guard...and the Emperor himself in a unique tale that will you have questioning all your assumptions about the Master of Mankind.

When Horus the Warmaster rebelled against the Emperor, the ensuing civil war nearly destroyed the Imperium. War raged across galaxy, pitting Astartes against their battle-brothers in a struggle where death was the only victor. But long before that, the Legions struggled with their identities and the demands of the Great Crusade. From battles with alien invaders to conflicts within a Legion, and even dealing with a wayward primarch, these stories show the battles fought as the Great Crusade draws to a close and the Horus Heresy begins....

Great collection of short stories

This series of novels and compilations of short stories are all excellent. Here are a collection of several short stories from the age of primarchs and like all others has been brought to life with such excellent voice acting that truly immersed you in the world created by the authors. A great listen and like many I agree that the short story compilations might be a good place to start to give you a flavor of the warhammer world if you do not wish to start at the beginning of the Horus heresy series this is a great place to start. For new and experienced readers of the series these short stories are great.

Great Story telling

I loved these short stories! It’s really cool to get these background stories on main characters.

fantastic book.

The last church, wolf at the door, and the world eater(i forget it's title) are just amazing. The other stories were good too, but those three were some of the best short stories from black library I heard.

Great listen, when the dialog can be heard

Some of the audio is very quiet during dialog, made it difficult to listen to without headphones, but the story and quality overall was great!

Great short stories, well, for the most part

There are some treasures in here. Particularly the last church. There is unfortunately a Dark Angels story to slog through, but as I said, great stories for the most part.

fun to get the short stories that fill in the gaps

the last church is easily one of my favorite pieces of lore from the entire 40K universe. it really showcases how much of a benevolent dick the emperor of mankind truly is. Also it would be very interesting to see an alternate history where angron never receives the nails.
