Audio Drama : 15 min
Though he knows such beliefs are forbidden, Vice-Caesari Marcus Valerius of the Therion Cohort is willing to lay down his life in service to the immortal God-Emperor, for the good of all mankind. Sent by Corax to the great slaughter at Beta-Garmon, every last one of the Imperial Army soldiers under his command knows that the end is nigh — but can Valerius' holy visions guide them to one final victory over the hordes of the hated Arch-traitor?.

The Binary Succession

Audio Drama : 75 min
Even as the Imperium faces the renegade Legions of the Warmaster, the ruling Council of Terra is becoming paralysed from within by increasingly petty bureaucracy. Fabricator General Kane has seen his fellow Mechanicum adepts dismissed again and again by the High Lords – with his traitorous predecessor Kelbor-Hal still at large on the Red Planet, the political status of the tech-priesthood remains ambiguous. New alliances must be forged from the old, if Mars and Terra are to survive the final battle.


Audio Drama : 27 min
Oll Persson stands apart from the rest of mankind. He is one of the old ones, one of the undying. One of the Perpetuals. Now, fleeing from the ruins of Calth with his band of fellow refugees, the vagaries of the warp have brought him through the backways of time and space to a city that rests on the edge of oblivion... and no further. The path has ended abruptly, and Oll's enemies are finally closing in. Will his immortality be enough to save him this time?.

The Soul Severed

Audio Drama : 25 min
As Lord Commander Primus, Eidolon leads the Emperor’s Children in the absence of his primarch — who even knows where the daemon prince Fulgrim resides, now? But a challenge from within the Legion forces Eidolon to confront one of his rivals, the ambitious Archorian, a capable officer and tactician who would see the Legion returned to glory. Dissent is unacceptable. It is time for the Kakophoni to be set against their erstwhile brethren.

Children of Sicarius

Audio Drama : 39 min
After the destruction of the Infidus Imperator, Kor Phaeron of the Word Bearers brought his followers to supposed safety in the Eye of Terror. However, their newly adopted home, the daemon world Sicarus, is far from the sanctuary they imagined – the twisted hordes of the Kairic Adept Larazzar seek to crush these newcomers and all who would ally with them. Only in the ancient legends of Sicarus can their salvation be found, but is Kor Phaeron the one to lead them to it?.

The Thirteenth Wolf

Audio Drama : 68 min
For more than two hundred years, the armies of the Emperor of Mankind fought to reconquer the galaxy — led by the superhuman primarchs, the Space Marine Legions brought countless worlds back under the rule of ancient Terra. Now Horus, once honoured Warmaster and favoured son of the Emperor, has been corrupted by the whispered promises of Chaos. At his command the Imperium is torn apart by a terrible and bloody civil war, the likes of which the galaxy has never seen... At the Emperor's command were the Wolves of Russ unleashed, but it is by the will of Horus alone that Prospero ...

The Heart of the Pharos

Audio Drama : 38 min
Young Oberdeii and Tebecai, Scouts of the Ultramarines 199th Company, descend into the depths beneath Mount Pharos in search of a dark truth... though it may haunt them for all time.

The Heart of the Pharos semble ne rien avoir à offrir. Avec son récit finalement très convenu et dénué de force, le Mont Pharos gardera tout ses mystères, tandis que l'audience réalisera que cette courte histoire aurait pu être inclus dans le roman directement.

The Either

Audio Drama : 67 min
Captain Tybalt Marr of the Sons of Horus, so often overlooked by his more glory-hungry brethren, returns to his Legion in triumph. However, his boasts of having slain the infamous Iron Hands warleader Shadrak Meduson soon fall flat when he learns of the recent assassination attempt on Horus himself. Gathering his forces upon the conquered world of Dwell, Marr returns to battle against the Shattered Legions, determined to earn his rightful place in history.

Avec un contexte aussi complet, on se demandera même comment l'auteur a pu inclure autant d'éléments sans parfaitement les expliquer. Il faudra donc passer par la case recherche pour ne rien manquer de cet audio mêlant en réalité plusieurs trames.


Audio Drama : 75 min
Though the Word Bearers’ attack on Calth and the subsequent Shadow Crusade into Ultramar are but a memory, the borders of Imperium Secundus are far from secure. Sergeant Aeonid Thiel, stranded on the garrison world of Oran on his way back to Macragge, frustrates his superiors once again by pointing out the holes in their defence – traitor warband activity is increasing, and a series of key listening posts have fallen silent. Leading a handful of rogue veterans and wearing the red mark of censure like a badge of honour, can Thiel uncover the truth behind the mysterious ‘Nightfane’?.

Red-Marked ne pourra être qu'un bonus au vu de ce qu'il raconte et même si l'histoire fera un grand pas en arrière, son écoute resta une bonne expérience pour moi. Avec les dernières pratiques de la Black Library, nous retrouverons surement cet audio drama en script dans un recueil...

Grey Talon

Audio Drama : 60 min
After the horrors of Isstvan, the XVIth Legion destroyer-class Grey Talon now flies under a loyalist crew on a campaign of retribution and vengeance, using her original colours to strike covertly at isolated traitor forces. Commanded by Bion Henricos of the Iron Hands, the ship is also home to many disgraced White Scars who have taken death-oaths to seek atonement – among them the peerless warrior Hibou Khan. But tensions run higher with each new engagement and, without a wider strategy to guide them, the crew of the Grey Talon will surely come to a grim and sudden end.

Il m'a fallu du temps pour apprécier Grey Talon à sa juste valeur, son narrateur m'empêchant de bien apprécier l'envergure de l’œuvre. Néanmoins après plusieurs écoutes, cet audio a beaucoup de qualités.
