Audio Review 115 // Grey Angel by John French

I love this short series following Loken's exploits and the pre-cursor Grey Knights. Also, as it is a John French tale, I have high hopes for a very enjoyable listen. Let's see if it lives up to the hopes.

Title: Grey Angel
Author: John French
Performers: John Banks, Toby Longworth
Blurb: On a distant world of the Imperium, an agent of Rogal Dorn finds himself the prisoner of a Legion whose loyalties may be divided. Shackled and bound, the former Luna Wolf must fight a battle of wits with his captor, lest the course of the Horus Heresy takes an unexpected turn. Will his presence drive his erstwhile allies into the arms of the Warmaster, or will maintaining the status quo prevent another Legion from turning traitor? And just who is the mysterious Space Marine aiding him from the shadows?

A Horus Heresy audio drama written by John French. Performed by John Banks, Toby Longworth and Ramon Tikaram. Running time approx 35 mins.


Hey, I love short stories, but this was relatively short. It truly deserved more time. The plot itself is enticing as the newly spilt Imperium can no longer trust each other. One great example of this is showcased in this title. Fearing the silence coming from Caliban, Rogal Dorn sends forth his agents to investigate and discover where the Dark Angel's loyalties lie.

Now, this title is for lore lovers. If you are new to the whole will they, won't they story of Cypher, Luthor and the Lion, then this piece may well confuse the shit out of you. Especially once you throw the Grey Knights' birth into it! But it is worth the listen if you keep up with it all. I can see why this was bindle with another story and combined they make for a solid listen.
