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? This abridged audio continues the epic tale of the Horus Heresy. The fate of the galaxy now rests in the simple choice of one man; loyalty or heresy?
Whilst the cracking novel by Graham McNeil originally came out in 2006 its taken a while for the turning point of the Heresy to find its way to audio book. Whilst many of the titles out there are condensed versions of the original text, here, the Black Library has done their best to preserve the book in its original form taking a staggering 5 CD’s to bring this epic to life.
Whilst its going to take a few days to get through, its one that will help you get the most from this adventure. Add to this, not just the writing talent of award winner Graham McNeill but the vocal talents of Martin Ellis. All in a wonderful addition to the series and one that really will help get people into the books. Finally look at the value for money (5 Audio Book CD’s for £20) and wow, its unbelievable.
