Publisher's Summary

From out of the shadows of the Silent War, a hero emerges. Clad all in grey, an errant warrior of the Legiones Astartes kneels before the Regent of Terra, and accepts a solemn new duty - Battle-Captain Garro, once commander of the Eisenstein, now Agentia Primus of Malcador the Sigillite.

From the desolation of Isstvan to the halls of the Imperial Palace itself, he stands as a paragon of loyalty and protector of the innocent, ever ready to strike back at the traitorous allies of the Warmaster. But Garro is walking a path of his own, one that may lead him to question his own place in the Imperium...and what if he, too, should falter?

This audiobook contains James Swallow's complete saga of Nathaniel Garro in the Horus Heresy - the audio drama series is embellished and expanded in prose, with additional scenes to represent the author's original vision. This all serves as prelude to the events of the novella Vow of Faith, bringing Garro closer to his inescapable destiny as the first true martyr of the Lectitio Divinitatus.

Critic Reviews

" Garro is not a collection of short stories - it's James Swallow's full novelisation of Nathaniel Garro's story arc, something we've previously only seen (in part) in the audio dramas and novella. There are new and extended scenes, whole new chapters in fact, making this just about the most definitive exploration of the founding of the Knights Errant, and everything that comes after...." (Laurie Goulding, The Horus Heresy series editor)

Malcador the completely different

The book is decent, but the thing that epidemice My dislike for this book is how much malcador act differently then in every book that comes before it... He has always been depicted as jovial and wise, sure he was ruthless enough to found the assassinorium, but he never showed rage or callusnes, and he always found a use for those Who remained loyal to the throne... Yet in this he kills loyal servent, nd plans the murder of even more loyal souls, and when garro shows the tenacity to unravel one of malcadors secrets which looked like a traitor plot, malcador punishes him instead of seeing it as the skill and loyalt to the throne that it was.... So yeah characers in this book grates against how they have been shown in the past...

A battle book.

Was unable to finish the book, I'm not interested in hearing 12hours of battle scenes descriptions with a hint of story on top.

Great Anthology of Garro stories.

Great set of books about the legendary Garro. Shows Garro's growth from Malcador's puppet to true believer of the Imperial Creed.

Toby Longworth's performance of this book makes it a better story than it actually is. it's a 5 star story. Toby makes it a 6.

Enjoyable story arc

I am home carer and my duties have increased by 500% during this Lockdown.

Being able to listen to some of my favourite 40k stories whilst spending hours travelling between vulnerable peoples homes has been a god sent.

Garro was already a great character and this audio book does him justice.

Recommended.

My first Black Library audio book

I've read many from the Horus Heresy but this was my first audio book from the series. After much deliberating which book to pick first I'm extremely glade Garro was my first. A must for anyone interested in the 40K world.

it's great, but doesn't add anything if you've heard the audio dramas that have already been released.

You can skip this one

Garro is a collection of largely pointless short stories that don't really add much to the series and are in some cases frustratingly poorly written. Hats off to the voice actors, but basically I'd save your money and try the next book instead.

Another great W40k audio book with Garro

Garro - if the emperor had another 10 of him, Horus and the terror god's would have his under a large plant pot! Showing his character, judgement and thoughtfulness, Garro is put in numerous positions that shoe him for the man he is.

Brilliant book

I really enjoyed this HH book, a step away from SM porn which is great but there is more depth to the IP. This is a story of faith of and the origins of one of the best loved chapters in modern day 40k. Great voice acting a real must for all those warhammer fans new and old.

Hand of the Sigilite

A great story, overall. A few parts where it struggled a little, but overall fairly compelling and some interesting twists and turns!

The voice acting was great, particuarly Malcador and the Assassin.

Nathaniel Garro remains a firm favourite of the HH series!

Enjoyable but often predictable

This next instalment advances the plot of the Heresy series in an enjoyable though often too predictable way.

At times the book shines. In depth characters and their involvement in their part of the saga often had me really enjoying it. Being able to predict quite easily what might happen next detracts from the enjoyment though. James is a great write but this didn't pull me in the same as his other novels in the series.

Narration was hit and miss. Enjoyable voices for the characters though general narration was quite monotone and emotionless.

Still a worthy listen. Still recommended.

Spoiler:

You finally find how Garviel Loken was found.

Meanders, as does the hero

Garo is one of the more interesting characters of the Heresy series. I was hoping this book would give the reader more insights and a nuanced perspectives to his character. It only partially succeeded. Garo wanders through the book, literally and metaphorically, yet reads as if single minded even in his supposed internal confusion and turmoil. Perhaps it was intented for him to remain enigmatic? I was left wanting a little more.

Great!

Would of been better if the narrator used the ultra marine psyker's voice for Garro and vice versa.
