The third audiobook in the Horus Heresy series to feature Nathanial Garro as the protagonist. Although it is the third, it may make more sense to listen to it second as it is set between Oath of Moment and Legion of One. In fact, listening to Legion of One prior to this provides a bit of a spoiler as to the fate of one character. Not a major issue as it still leaves some mystery regarding other characters.
Once again, Toby Longworth provides narration and also provides the voices for Garro and Malcador. John Banks and Ramon Tikaram also provide voice acting for the other characters. Sound effects add to the varied voices to engage the listener with the story.
At 140 minutes, this audiobook is double the length of the previous two and explores a story with a little more detail and exemplifies the distrust and anarchy that Horus’ betrayal has brought to the legions of the Imperium.
An interesting and exciting listen, I look forward to the next audiobook to star Nathanial Garro.
