Summary

A Primarchs Anthology

The primarchs, nigh-immortal sons of the Emperor of Mankind, take the stage in a series of short stories showcasing some of their great deeds and hideous acts from across the Great Crusade and the Horus Heresy.

LISTEN TO IT BECAUSE

Whether you see them as heroes, villains, or victims of the Emperor's machinations, these tales will give you a different perspective on a host of primarchs – including Angron, Vulkan, Magnus the Red, and Horus himself.

DESCRIPTION

From their shadowed origins to the desperate battles that ensued when half of their number rebelled against their father, the sons of the Emperor – the vaunted primarchs – were among the mightiest champions of the nascent Imperium, warriors without peer, and heroes whose actions became legend. Whether you seek the angel Sanguinius, who confronted the dark nature of his bloodthirsty Legion, or mighty Vulkan, whose connection to humanity set him apart amongst his brothers, or dour Perturabo, architect, inventor and murderous warlord, or even Horus Lupercal, whose shining light was eclipsed only by the darkness that grew within his soul – this anthology covers eight of the primarchs and their greatest, darkest deeds.

Finally professional.

After so long, my favourite yt VA did an official Warhammer audiobook and it is AWERSOME. Perfect mimicry of characters’ voices, perfect storytelling, nothing to complain about. Can’t wait for another one!
The stories themselves are all those “fun primarch X fact” that every fan knew but didn’t know where they came from. Well, here they are, and it is a must-listen.

another great dive into the primarchs

a great collection of stories to introduce and expand upon then primarchs most were amazing but some were a little lacking. however the narrator was very engaging making it an enjoyable experience throughout.

Christopher Tester needs to redo the HH! the first 2 books are actually amazing, but the the cliff it falls off in quality and feel is huge!

I love the Black Library, and I'll be buying books done by Christopher Tester because he's doing them.

10/5 stars
