Summary

A Space Marines Audio Drama Collection

Space Marines can be found fighting hundreds of wars across every sector of the Imperium - they are the will of the emperor made manifest. These audio dramas will bring you into their battles as never before, as bolt shells and chainswords lay waste to any who would stand against them. 

Listen to it because...this collection of audio dramas from Black Library authors including Nick Kyne, Josh Reynolds and more, weaves tales of fan-favourite and lesser-known Space Marine Chapters, providing new insight into the Imperium's Angels of Death, how they think, and how they fight.

OK for background listening.

Overall a good collection, but found the last story which was episodic quite annoying in that every 10 minutes it felt like there was another 2 minutes of the same credits. A little editing could have gone a long way.

Nothing new.

I was a little disappointed with this collection, I was under the impression that some would be new, but it wasn't to be.
All old stroys I've heard before

Great listen but...

This was a great combination of short stories and a great narrative performance apart from the rebellion of tranzia, there was like 8 or 9 I lost count of interruptions between the chapters that ruined the last story for me other than that it was a great listen !!!

why the ultramarine when 90% is raven guard storys

majority of these short stories are pointless, the sound effects they add in the background most of the time are louder than the person speaking, why is there an Ultra Marine for the cover of s when 90% of stories are about the Raven guard, and some of the stories don't even have a clear end they just finished with no real explanation to anything, a waste of my monthly credit if you ask me

now that I finished, the last story you had to listen to the opening and closing of each "chapter" completely unnecessary. maybe 2 good stories in this whole thing.

Not a fan of the radio drama format

This was going great until the final story. They should have meshed the radio drama into a single story. The constant breaks took me out of the story and killed the enjoyment and flow. This flaw took 1 star away from Overall and Performance along with 2 stars on the Story.

Jacked up audio

Something is wrong with the audio as it has a robotic sound during the reading. Volume drops to a almost whisper then jumps back up to normal.

Add Some Color to Your Warhammer Knowledge

This is my first big step into the lore behind the game Warhammer 40k. Listening to this book was a joy that inspired my imagination and sparked ideas for the hobby that I enjoy.
