Honour to the Dead is a new audio addition to the ever-growing Horus heresy series.
This audio drama has a 75mins runtime approx.

It is set in the events on Calth - the battle between the Ultramarines and the Word Bearers. Whilst it doesn't really add to the progression of the overall story, it expands that particular storyline, fitting nicely with "Know No Fear" and just before "Mark of Calth".

The story is all about Titans, great big warmachines, as they fight for control of a city on Calth. Caught up in between this is Jane Collingwood's character, who plays a mum desperate to find her newborn son amid the warzone. Protecting her are 3 Ultramarines troops.
The plot is fairly basic, but flows rather well. However, not much seems to happen (its quite fast paced and jumps from scene to scene), and what does happen is passed over fairly quickly.
The soundeffects and atmosphere are great - the warhorns of the Titans themselves are very cool - reminiscent of "War of the Worlds".

The only criticism I'd have is that the traitor Princeps is way too 1 Dimensional - crazy, deluded, with no real depth. Yes, he's been serving alongside the arch-traitor Word Bearers Legion, but his voice just seemed a bit over-the-top and vaudevillian... Maybe when I finally read the prose I'll have a different opinion.

Obviously this is not an audio (or series) you can just dip into, and I'd suggest reading "Know No Fear" before you listen to this one. A good addition to the series, but not the best.

Since my brother got my interested in the Horus Heresy series, I have enjoyed both the books and audio dramas.

This one is excellent, Heavy Entertainment delivers Gav Thorpe's story brilliantly, the voice acting is top level, and the sound track and sound effects really let me picture what is going on.

Despite the Horus Heresy being a tragedy story, you usually get a sign of hope for the future and a strong will to endure and go on at the end of each story, it is very strong in this audio drama.

excellant when you hear a titan warhorn for the first time it will send chills down your spine. the only female character does whine a lot, wish GW would write a decent female character who are not whiney mothers or whiney insane fanatics.

The audio books from the Black Library are always good fun to listen to and whilst they usually are told from a quite small point of view of huge epic battles, bloodshed as well as wonderfully acted by the talent, this one is a little different as we get the story partly from a civilian point of view.

Its wonderfully descriptive, the dialogue works wonderfully and the sound effects generate a story that will have the listener on tenterhooks as it slowly unveils itself, told from multiple points of view including Space Marines, Chaos, civilians as well as from the War Machine Gods that stride the Battlefield of death. Its definitely different and Gav Thrope really has captured the terrible confusion of a war being fought. All round a great piece of Audio fiction and one that I'll be listening to again in the near future. Magic
