Description

When the world of Armageddon is attacked by orks, the Black Templars Space Marine Chapter are amongst those sent to liberate it. Chaplain Grimaldus and a band of Black Templars are charged with the defence of Hive Helsreach from the xenos invaders in one of the many battle zones.

But as the orks' numbers grow and the Space Marines' numbers dwindle, Grimaldus faces a desperate last stand in an Imperial temple. Determined to sell their lives dearly, will the Black Templars hold on long enough to be reinforced, or will their sacrifice ultimately be in vain?

First Foray into Warhammer 40k

This book was suggested to me by a friend when I asked which Audible Warhammer book I should begin with.
It did not disappoint. I was vaguely familiar with Warhammer 40k before beginning this story (I had primarily seen pictures of Space Marines etc.) and I was quickly drawn into the Universe with little trouble imagining the different characters, species, and machinery. The backdrop of this Universe is one of War on such an immense scale that it is difficult to understand, however this story takes the big picture and slowly focuses in from a planetary system scale to a single planet, to a continent on said planet and finally focusing on the defense of a single city. In doing that, the reader receives the feeling of both the grand scale of a star systems at war all the way down to individuals in hand to hand combat trying to survive and claim victory over seemingly insurmountable odds. While listening, I as the reader was unsure as to which characters were going to survive and indeed if ANY would survive. The character development was nuanced but well done and with enough humor to release the tension when needed.
The voice acting was well done and added to the war type atmosphere that was ever present throughout the story.
All being said this was a great introduction to Warhammer 40k and I plan on listening to more in the future.

"Until the End"

Bowden's writing brought to life in only the way Keeble can. Road by bloody road the forces of Hellsreach are beaten back. Yet they stand. Until the end.

Fantastic!

If you could sum up Helsreach: Warhammer 40,000 in three words, what would they be?

It is great!

What other book might you compare Helsreach: Warhammer 40,000 to and why?

Betrayer. Because it's the same author and also a great story.

Have you listened to any of Jonathan Keeble’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to a lot of Jonathan Keeble stories and this is one of his best.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

"Grimaldus. Die well."

Any additional comments?

Highly recommend.

By The Emperor! One of the best 40K audio books on here. Jonathan Keeble brings it to life wonderfully!

In-f'ing-credible

Hands down one of the best 40k books I've ever read( or listened too). Great characters, great story. Loved the look at some of the politics and motivations, and personal doubts Grimaldus was dealing with. Also another absolutley stellar reading by Johnathan Keeble.

Feels will be had

You know there’s no hope for any the poor souls of Helsreach. However, Aaron Dembski-Bowden’s amazing writing and Jonathan Keeble’s stellar performance will slip past whatever emotional barriers you’ve constructed and rip your heart out regardless. It’s one hell of a wild ride.

Nothing for the light hearted.

It takes a while until one realises, that whatever happens within the story line, eventually there is only one end to it. Whether it's a love story or true heroism, there is only one end in a world where there is only war.
Although this perception is slightly depressing, and the outcome sometimes foreseeable, the story's tenting won't let you down.
The author manages to picture the the state of war, the horrors and forlornness of the Warhammer Universe in an unmatched, cruel reality.

Gute kurzweilige Unterhaltung

perfekt beim gassi gehen, im Wartezimmer beim Arzt oder auf langer Bahnfahrt.

Der Sprecher ist sehr gut zu verstehen und Schul-english sollte, denke ich, ausreichen.
