Overview

An abridged six cd set of the second Horus Heresy book

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?

This is the second book of the Horus Heresy Series. This book is the beginning of the political aspects of the Heresy. Horus is injured by a magical weapon and in order to save him the astartes are tricked by an agent of chaos into taking him to a fane so that he can be healed. While being healed he is duped by the gods of chaos into beginning a war for the throne of Earth. This book is more political and internal than the first book, it was interesting, but not as fast paced or engaging. I am interested in finishing the series though, so it couldn't have been that bad.

Overall I liked this book even better then the first. Only two characters seemed "off" to me right from the start with another author doing the story, but that is quickly forgotten. You are introduced to more primarchs and there is much more of Horus in this volume. You also learn more about the power of "Chaos". There is not very much mentioned about the interex which where at the end of the Horus Rising which I was hoping for but if you liked the first volume I would not worry about the second being written by someone else. It is full of action. Highly recommended

Horus becomes more and more jealous of his brother Primarchs (that share same feelings) and tries to rise up above them. Soon he will be faced with decision - to follow his brothers and Emperor or to cut them down and establish himself as a ruler of humanity. Not that much action in this book, but nevertheless good presentation of inner conflicts in a person of Horus - super-man, almost a demigod creature that feels confined by his duties toward ordinary humans and to his father Emperor. Decision is to be made made that will bring thousands of years of darkness to humanity.

Lupercal! Lupercal! Lupercal! I was a little hesitant about this one. This is book two of the bestselling Horus Heresy series and I had just finished the mind-blowingly great Horus Rising written by my man Dan Abnett. In fact, this is the first Warhammer story I have read that wasn’t written by Abnett. Guess what? This guy is also great! He picked up the baton and ran with it, now I love this novel just as much as the first. Is it possible all Warhammer writers are great? We will see. I noticed the next two books are written by different authors as well, now I can’t wait. I have the trade paperback version of this book and it’s the only paperback I’ve ever seen that has a score on the front and back cover. This enables the book to be opened wide for reading without creasing the spine, which I can’t stand. I don’t know if that is an innovation from the UK, where the Black Library is based, or a publishing secret from China where the book was printed. I tip my hat to whomever thought of that and give my permission to have all future paperbacks produced in the same manner. Did I mention this is a great book? If you read the first one you are going to need to add this one to your collection as well.
