Publisher's Summary

A galaxy burns and brother turns on brother as the conflict brought about by a beloved son’s betrayal reaches its fateful end. The Warmaster Horus has triumphed. His massive fleet at last nears Terra and the patriarchal Throne of his hated father. Many have fallen to bring this moment about; their tales are the ashes upon which the Heresy was born and prospered. Others have played their own small parts, drops in an ocean of war and blood. 

None of it matters. 

Terra looks to the skies as it raises its defences. Armies muster, heroes raise their swords, citizens cower. The war is coming. And nothing can stop it.

Great Book!

This one goes quick! "The Board is Set" was AMAZING!
Jonathan Keeble is hands down one of the best narrators for GW and the Black Library, matched only by Gareth Armstrong in my opinion. This one will not disappoint you. This one creates the sense in the listener that a great and Epic story is coming to a close. What ever will we do when the Horus Heresy series ends? 🤔

Amazing short stories

I really Enjoyed almost every aspect of these stories. great writing as always, great characters and the narration is superb. Any faults i.e mistakes in narration or writing is overshadowed by the story itself. if you are a fan of the 41st millennium this is a great book ah's i'd you are a fan of the 31st millennium this is even better for you. I highly recommend this novel to any Warhammer Fan.

Riveting epics entreched with fathomless depth

Another well crafted masterpiece. Belongs in an opera house. Kudos to those who helped in this project. Would love to hear this group do an adaptation of the Word Bearers Omnibus by Anthony Reynolds. Death to the Corpse Emperor!!! Glory to the True Gods!!!

Nice compilation

I usually dislike such compilations of short stories, but I have to admit, that I really enjoyed this one. It nicely closed some gaps and while some were weaker then others, generally very nice compilation with lot of substanance in it.

Each story is worth a novel

Except maybe Painted Count and Soul Severed. Also a great preparation for Solar War.

Excellent selection of stories

Heresy anthologies have lately been a hit-and-miss affair packed with more filler than anything else. Heralds of the Siege marks a welcome return to form, and many rewards for those who've stayed the course. The stories are no longer filling in time to get from point to point, and really, truly finding new character beats and nuances in long-established figures.

Even the venerable Jonathan Keeble is upping his considerable game: his portrayal of Leman Russ borders on Brian Blessed levels of unhinged awareness and truly polishes off an already excellent story. This one - Magisterium - finally gives Constantin Valdor a real voice, and brings a much greater understanding of the Custodes beyond just plain arrogance.

As with all anthologies there's one or two duds; Matthew Hunt in particular hasn't quite grasped the 30k lexicanum but it's early days and those jarring pronunciations should be soon hammered outyl. As with the last few Heresy novels the pace seems to be renewed, with authors such as Thorpe, Wraight and French once again stepping up to the mark where only Abnett or McNeill would previously tread. Worth buying indeed.

Worth a listen

I really enjoyed the stories, Johnathan K’s performance was great (as always), Matthew Hunt was not so good (hence the 3 star performance rating) luckily he only narrates 1 story.

Great collection of short stories

Most flesh out the end of other stories. e.g. Exocytosis takes place right after Angels of Caliban.
The performance was outstanding. I particularly loved the thunder legion part with Matthew Hunt.

Narrator Butchered the Reading

Short story in this book read by Matthew Hunt was hard to get through. His pronunciation of "butcher" as buh-tcher and "bullet" as buh-let is horrific. Not even an accent problem as he speaks perfectly clear English. So, what gives!?

One Door Closes, Another Opens

This book almost feels the closing of one door and opening another as the Horus Heresey begins its end. Many of the stories are written with a feeling that the war on Terra is about to break like a cresting wave; giving the briefest hints at the devestation to come.

The voice acting is superb as always and being short stories you can listen to one, take a break and then continue with another.
