Bjorn broke my heart.

The saga is told, the pack avenged and the pain of a lifetime of hunting for vengeance is expunged. I mourned for his brothers of the pack, and rejoiced as he wreaked his vengeance on the creature.

Just one story in this book of many such stories. The perfidy of Horus and his corruptors is laid bare, and those victims left to exact vengeance stalk the void.

Titles are already on sale....Still amazing.

Alot (if not all) of these titles are already on sale. However, they are great stories. butchers nails, really gets Angrons voice. ( played by Jonathan Keeble) I'd pay the credits just for that short story alone. All the shorts really add to the 30k setting. Here's me, replaying some of these stories on Halloween night, whilst it's raining outside. Brilliant! Black library at it's best.

Well worth the credits. Get stuck in !

AWESOME

An amazing collection of shorter stories that add flavour to the Heresy saga and flesh out a lot of the characters.
I would highly recommend!

Skip the first story

80-90% of these short stories are amazing and left me wanting more and more of each character.

HOWEVER, the first story’s narration is horrendous. I have understand and empathise with getting an East Asian narrator for Asian characters, but the narrators accent makes the narration grating and unaudible at times. I had to skip after really trying my best to engage with the story and allowing it to play out over an hour or two.

Continues to be captivating

Enjoyed all of it. However the multiple short story novels of the series I do enjoy less that a single focused story. Regardless I would recommend.
