Description

Now that news of Horus' treachery is in the open, a time of testing has come. Some Legions have already declared their allegiance to the Warmaster while the loyalty of others lies firmly with the Emperor. As Horus deploys his forces, loyalist Astartes learn that a massive Wordbearers fleet is heading to Ultramar, home of the Ultramarines.

Unless they can intercept the fleet and destroy the mighty battleship that has been sent to reinforce it, the Ultramarines may suffer a blow from which they will never recover.

Overall

The accents were nice. But often times there was no inflection change from narrative next to character spoken text. So I wasn’t sure when it was that a character was speaking compared to narration.

I felt the second half of the books writing and voice acting were different than the first half. It would have been a greater experience if the whole book was written like the second half and voice acted in a similar fashion.

frustrating and tedious

brilliant performance with excellent voices can't save this plodding military procedural from being entirely forgotten

the consensus is true

I charged into this book thinking that most of the reviews were overly critical, not really warranted.

I was wrong. I found it to be boring. there was never a strong sense of tension, most of the characters were unlikable, apparently Ultramarines mostly speak in one liners. there was a lot present that could have made for an interesting story but being unable to connect with any of the characters kept me from appreciating the book.

it furthers the story

it furthers the story, but this particular story is not a good one. The writing is lacking and relies on heavy cliches. compared to others in the series, it doesn't stand up.

Okay

The overall performance was good however there where some words that the reader got interchanged such as immaterium and imperium which was annoying. One small section of the recording which repeats itself it’s just one sentence so it’s not that big of deal

Overall it’s okay: story is good, performance and execution is some what lacking

Better than I'd figured it would be. <br />

I enjoyed the book right up until the end. with out spoilage. it just seemed to rush the last chapter and a half or so. and end abruptly. As a warhammer fan. I understood why. But for mainstrwam readers I fear it might be outputting for this. Narrator however was top-notch and had a great range and voice. The word Beares leader was a huge douche imo. A really fun to hate villian.

Amazing

This book is non-stop action with only small moments of development to break it up. The characters are distinct and interesting. This book will make you a 40k fan.

Meh

The narrator was pretty good. The story wasn't the best so I think that took away from the narrators performance a bit. The story jumped around to much which prevented any real connection to any characters.

Critical Analysis

Overall, the story was good, voice acting excellent, character building was thought out very carefully.
I am very new to the Warhammer universe, having only heard of it for the first time about mid 2018. Yes, I know, I'm desperately behind, but I am doing my best to catch up with the lore.

Considering the info GW has given us this far, It would almost seem impossible for this whole plot to destroy the Abyss with a single cruiser ( I believe that is what the loyalist had) and a couple of boarding craft and with what the info the book provided no more than 4-5 squads of Marines. Now, they say several times in the book that "this is the biggest ship that they've ever seen". Hear are some things we do know the. The Fist of Macragge is a 26k long battleship.... that's freaking huge, twice the length of the Super Star Destroyer in Star Wars. so let's say the Abyss was 30k long, I think that's fare.
Now look at the story now now the ships rough size, compared to the loyalist fleet, which only consisted of a few cruisers and light cruisers. And you are BOARDING IT! what! you need a armada to even think about getting close. any Ships getting with boarding range would be blown out of the void within seconds, with no hope surviving. We know that with a ship that size has a butt ton of fire power, heck they were going to use it destroy the UltraMarines homeworld.
I may be missing something from the book, but, it doesn't seem feasible for the Marines to board it and then take on an entire chapters worth or more of Word Bearers.

That is the only part "thing" that annoyed me. Everything else was great, story, characters, plot ect.

I would recommend this book to any Warhammer fan.
