My review is divided into two separate ones since I listened to them individually as they were early-released individually:

“Garro is back again with James Swallow at the helm! It doesn’t get any better than that.”

The last time we saw Garro, he was on a mission from Malcador to the blasted ruins of Istvaan III, where Horus Lupercal began his rebellion by purging his forces of all those considered too loyal to the Imperium to be converted to his cause. Garro
Both installments are short but sweet, although they will seem to be small fillers in the Horus Heresy / Garro story arcs, they are nonetheless, still entertaining. As usual the production is top-notch, if not better. I was particularly pleased with how the characters' voices are now enhanced with the proper ambient effect (for example when they talk within a small, enclosed room with metal walls). Well, however short, I am still pleased with the series' continuity.
Grey Angel was good, Burden of Duty was less so. The stories would probably have benefited from additional lenght and content. Burden of Duty felt rather cheap and rushed for some reason as well.

3/5, and I feel like I am fairly generous rating it that.
