Description

The Space Marine Legions of old are dead, torn asunder in the wake of the Horus Heresy. In their place have risen a thousand Chapters, each unique, each carrying the legacy of their founders across the countless battlefields of the Imperium.

The Flesh Tearers spill blood in a war of brutal attrition.

The Emperor's Spears keep a tireless watch where their brothers have fallen.

The Consecrators search the dark places for relics, artefacts of power from the noble past.

The Crimson Fists vow, with bloodied hands, to become Dorn's glorious vanguard once more.

These are the Imperium's bulwark against terror, the Emperor's Angels of Death. Forged from the genetic material of the demigod Primarchs, it is by the might of these Adeptus Astartes that the growing darkness of the galaxy is held at bay - for the Space Marines know no fear.

Worth it for Fehevari's story

A mix of good, great and lesser stories. my favourites are McNeill's, Haley's and Fehevari's stories.

mixed bag

Some of the stories are better than others

You have entry stories like Patience Kills and stories that require quite a bit of knowledge like the ADB stories and the Peter Fehevari one.

Overall I enjoyed it. The voice acting was great.

It's going to be impossible to please everyone with this mix. Rating based on the simple stories not doing it for me.

Very mixed bag

Some very ordinary shorts with the odd tale that grabs the attention. Not worth a credit, maybe pick up in a sale.

Interesting tales

Some more interesting than others and depending on tastes better than others, I think an anthology is always going to leave some disappointment and that is not the authors fault but the readers for unrealistic expectations, I enjoyed this

Black libary churning it out..

ADB story was good, nice little follow on from the emperor's spear, Some of the audio commentary didn't hit the mark on this, really getting the impression this is just got compiled as a bit of a side thought.
