A Must Listen for Fans

Mild spoilers ahead:

As Always a great Voice reading it.
And as Always more depth for the Marines and Primarchs we know.

A battle that is fought with Bolter and carmine Blade.
A Battle fought with psiker and psychology
Betrayals good and bad.

And as is fitting for a Tale of Angels and Daemons: a battle fought on the Plane of the soul, the heart and the very character.

It might not be one of the Best Heresy Novels, but it is definitely a great one - for its ambitious task alone.

It only falls short with some of the characterisations and the shift from interpersonal to mythological drama... here its gears grind but to me at least deliberately enough to convey the feelings of the characters thrown into hell to defend themselves.

And only looking back I realised how different the first Half turned out compared to the second.

In the end no one can say he won. And if... only a pyrrhic victory, payed for in Blood, Faith and Ideals, all now spent, leaving everyone compromised.

Biggest Plus gets the Epilogue - for a punishment long time coming.

Next stop: The Unremembered Empire...

Great Book, great readers.. but

4 out of 5 stars

I really like thiy audiobook, i really like the readers Presented, But I am feeling a bit let down that the great Style of The first Dune Audiobook wasn't adapted here.

Where they used to read each role in heated situation and a Storyteller read the Most Part here the different readers, read the whole chapters, interchanging - but still i feel a bit of the Flair of the Original audiobook lost.

But it is Still an awesome Audiobook.
