    1. Can't say I enjoyed this one as much as Oath of Moment. The bad guys were pretty lame (just generic Zombies) and the return to Isstvann III, the setting for the bloody climax of the first Horus Heresy trilogy, didn't possess the gravitas that it should have had.

    2. Audiodrama. Much better than the first audiodrama. Tons of action! And the ending? A hell of a shocker but in a good way!

    3. You can read the full review over at my blogshadowhawksshade.wordpressShadowhawk reviews the first two Garro audio dramas by James Swallow, Oath of Moment and Legion of One, part of the Horus Heresy series by Black Library.“Some of the most well-written and highly enjoyable audio dramas, Oath of Moment and Legion of One are among James Swallows’ best work for Black Library.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding FieldsThe two Garro audios were the first Black Library audio dramas I ever listened to. I [...]

    4. This book deserves the Emperor's praise! It's very well-written, as Garro continues his search for recruits for his merry band of "misfits". He's on his quest to find the last guyd he ends up visiting familiar territory. The buildup is good but the twist near the end is astounding, something I didn't expect after reading and listening to how many books in the WH40k universe. I highly recommend listening to this (these is no e-book or actual book for this series) and going through the succeeding [...]

    5. Even though it has everything you'd expect, this one is not as good as its prequel. The reveal of the pivotal character is just dragged out way too long. If you've read previous stuff in the Heresy, it is, after all, quite obvious what the planet and who the man is. The whole "we will not say his name" thing just made the final confrontation scene very unrealistic.Still, a fun listen. As usual, good stuff from James Swallow.

    6. Took me some time to listen to this one. I knew what chronology Garro's audiobooks go, and i listened them in such order, I know the characters so it was great story, and for me it gave good dialogues. For all the narrative i respect James Swallow and his abilities, great intrigues and some nice foreshadows, one of best reads I've had

    7. By and far the best audio drama to date. Garro, Rubio, and Varren make for interesting company on the blighted world of Istvaan III. The action was intense, the twist phenomenal, and I really look forward to where it goes from here!Cerberus was amazing, and I really don't know how I feel about that bit. I love it, because it is him. But it ruins the sacrifice of his death at the same time.

    8. Great story, lots of action and generally well done. However I found the voice actor for Garro a bit irritating. Garro is supposed to be this legendary battle hardened icon in the Horus Heresy but the voice used for him just makes him sound very pompous and self-aggrandizing.Another thing I dislike is with Cerberus being pronounced with a soft C.

    9. This one was a great depiction of the insanity of the war and the problems of taking things at face value (as to a lot of Horus). Very interesting final message that seems antithetical to the 40k universe's message of "There is only war."

    10. Good quality, but not really to my liking. Garro formerly of the Death Guard legion is send with two fellow marines to a world completely burned to ash by the ravages of the Horus Heresy. A short story the would probably be more interesting if I had read most of the other HH novels.
