A great combination

Dan Abnett is possible the best living Sci-Fi author. Toby Long is one of the best Narrators particularly of Gothic fantasy. The two of them together are fantastic.

This story makes a great kick off to the Horus Hearsay, but possibly not the best start to Warhammer 40k fiction as a whole.

Truly Amazing!

Horus Rising was spectacular. I have listened to a few Black Libary audio CDs and most have disappointed me. Mainly due to their length, most are only an hour or so long. Horus Rising is over 12 hours long and they are 12 truly amazing hours of splendid back story. This story achieved to paint true depth and colour onto so many key events and characters that I was only basically aware of before. The best scene for me was the diplomatic dialogue that occurred between Horus and his counterpart. So wonderfully well written and the voice acting was splendid in its execution.
