Description

An Adeptus Mechanicus novel.

In the wake of the Great Rift, Belisarius Cawl turns his attention to the abandoned world of Sotha. Once home to the Scythes of the Emperor, it also hides a long-buried secret...and an ancient evil.

Listen to it because:

Cawl is one of the most fascinating characters in the Dark Imperium, and Guy Haley gets right into his memory circuits as he seeks ancient secrets that will blow your mind.

The story: 

Belisarius Cawl, Archmagos Dominus of the Adeptus Mechanicus, is the most brilliant mind alive. For 10,000 years he has furthered the cause of mankind, working under the aegis of the Emperor and Lord Commander Roboute Guilliman to prevent the inexorable march of the alien and the traitor. Many call him heretic, but all must recognise the magnitude of his achievements, for who else but he was entrusted to create a new generation of Space Marines? 

Who else but the great Belisarius Cawl could even accomplish such a task? Now, in the wake of the Great Rift and the Indomitus Crusade, his ambitions bring him to the long-dead world of Sotha, once home to the Scythes of the Emperor, now a barren wasteland devoured by the vile Tyranids. Accompanied by Tetrarch Felix and his elite warriors, it is here that Cawl believes the lynchpin of his mysterious Great Work lies. But uncovering it is a near impossible task, one in which the Archmagos must overcome an ancient evil that threatens to extinguish the last hope of humanity.

Written by Guy Haley. Total running time 11 hours and 11 minutes. Performed by John Banks.

Adequate

Cawl has been a controversial figure in the lore since he appeared in Gathering Storm. There are some interesting developments to his background in this story that help to justify some of his deeds(looking at you Primaris). That said Cawl feels so powerful and knowledgeable that there isn't ever any real danger to him or those around him. As a result, most of the tension in the book focuses on Cawl's relationship with a Primaris he personally helped create, the remaining Scythes of the Emperor, and Cawl's own past. Most of the lore here is accurate if not always respected given Cawl's literally a desu ex machina.

Masterful

Touching, genius, and insightful. A great work in of itself. It was a bit hard to follow at points due to jumps, however I am positive this was intentional and merely another layer to the masterpiece. Even if you don't follow the Adeptus Mechanicus, even if you can't stand Primaris, even if you are tired of the old Marines, please read this. I will absolutely be adding a physical copy to my collection. Well done, very well done.

So much Lore!

1st, the narrator performed well, there were hardly any strange pronunciations of things from the Warhammer universe.

2nd, considering this book deals with a secondary successor chapter, the most boring aliens in all of Warhammer 40K, and the fairly repetitive Tyrranids, this book does very very well.

Belisarius is really fleshed out in this novel, pardon the pun.If the book is read from the perspective of Belisarius being the axis of the story, then the reader can have a really good time.

This book accomplishes the nearly impossible by making I actually care about some random successor chapter of the Ultramarines and the most boring alien faction in Warhammer 40K, the Necrons.

The setting for the story spans from before the great crusade to the very recent moments within the sundered imperium.

You want the truth ! ??

“You can’t handle.....” ok here it is. In short
“ I NEED MORE”
I wasn’t to sure about this character ( I thought it was someone else so the first listen my characters were wrong in my head, but trust the process and plow threw it.) now he’s one of my favorite characters !!! I’m 1 year into the mythos of WH40k, so who is this guy? I’m into bad ass space marines! until I found Eisenhorn !- but this lovable weirdo “Cawl”- reminds me of a dark version of rick from rick and morty - witty , fun, but not silly - he’s always one step ahead of everyone and his eye on the goal! Master manipulator -I need more - possibly the most flexible Character ever made. Because he gets to “download personalities” that he thinks will best suit his Mission. He’s likable . And he’s modular ( mostly machine exterior ) so he can armor up when he needs. This is a fun one !!!

Really enjoyed the story, good narration too.

Well developed characters as the story progresses. Hard to follow if you don't pay attention during the time jumps back and forth, but with some attention it all links up pretty well while still leaving room for fun speculation.

Cawl knew it all along

I found this novel to be a great deal of fun, and I actually quite enjoyed getting to see the gaps from the Horus Heresy and Cawls story there filled. That being said you never feel any sense of danger for Cawl as he seems so thoroughly in command of himself and his surroundings throughout the story, this is one of the few times in my memory where space marines seem so completely outclassed not just by the enemy but by an ally.

This book is definitely worth a listen, just be aware that the hero of this tale is a tad over the top.

Like a sequel to the progenitor, but better

All in all Belisarius Cawl is like a loyalist Fabious Bile , walking a fine line between heresy and genius. Even though he sometimes seems a tad too much like Batman with prep-time ("I was prepared for things I could not have known in advance"), he manages to stay in reasonable bounds. The main protagonist being a Primaris Astartes also brings good conflict and insight into the story.

The main plot itself struggles a bit at times and the way they deal with the "end boss" is kind of silly, but it gives insight into one of the bigger mysteries of 30/40k lore. Overall I would recommend.

An Ensconcing Prelude to Mechanical Ascension.

I went into this book not knowing what to expect, but came out of it more than satisfied. The titular character's narrative is a Glorious enigma, a puzzle well worth solving. it is also good prelude I think for those wanting contacts for things to come in the ninth edition of Warhammer 40K itself. Spectacular, certainly.

Belesarius, Felix, Tyranids, Necrons<br />... AWESOME

After the Dark Imperium books (wich i hope will have a 3rd entry soon) we got to know Tetrarc Felix Decimus (butchered that one, sry). In this book we get to know him even better. Leading his troops to aid Belesarius Cawl, a quite intresting persona indeed, in Cawls endeavor to harness vital information. Information that could save mankind. Under Felix's troops is an old but still honorable batch space marines, which are trying to redeem themselves and take vengeance on the ugly genestealers that destroyed their home planet.

In summary it is jet again a great book to listen to. The insight u gain about Cawl and Felix is pretty awesome and u start to connect even more with those characters. The lets call it side plot with the genestealers is a good adition to the main story. All of the spoken by the great John Banks makes for a decent and great experience. Try it yourself, u wont be disappointed.

Fun book

Belisarius Cawl basically is Rick Sanchez with augmetics. Which makes him the good kind of Mary Sue.

Best Audiobook so far!

A great story that gives a little insight of the big picture in the 40k verse. John Banks did an amazing job reading it. So far the best audiobook I’ve got.

A great background book

How to Unmary Sue a Mary Sue. The background from Belisarius Cawl comes to make sense in light of the given background that was severely lacking in the 8th edition rulebook.

Though I don't like how they retconned the implications that the Pharos is not a construct of the old ones.

All in all a great book that I can only recommend but read first the Dark Imperium and Dark Imperium Plauge Wars first to make more sense of the book.
