    Description

    An Astra Militarum novel. 

    The storm has broken, and the forces of Chaos batter against Cadia's defences. Lord Castellan Creed leads the defence of the fortress world, but for how much longer can they hold out. Cadia stands...but will it stand forever?  

    Listen to It Because:

    Justin D Hill follows up his Ursarkar Creed short stories in Legends of the Dark Millennium: Astra Militarum with the tale of the hero's finest - and darkest - hour.  

    The story:

    Under almost constant besiegement by the hosts pouring from the Eye of Terror, Cadia acts as a bulwark against tyranny and death. Its fortresses and armies have held back the hordes of Chaos for centuries, but that grim defiance is about to reach its end. 

    As Abaddon's Thirteenth Black Crusade batters Cadia's defences, and armies of the Imperium flock to reinforce this crucial world, a terrible ritual long in the making comes to fruition and the delicate balance of this brutal war shifts.

    From the darkness, a hero rises to lead the beleaguered defenders, Lord Castellan Ursarkar Creed, but even with the armoured might of the Astra Militarum and the strength of the Adeptus Astartes, will it be enough to avert disaster and prevent the fall of Cadia? While Creed lives, there is hope. While there is breath in the body of a single defender, Cadia stands...but for how much longer?   

    Written by Justin D Hill. Running time 7hrs 39mins. Narrated by David Seddon.

    The Many (Short) Lives of the Cadian Shock Troops

    Presented as a series of vignettes, this tells the story of the Fall of Cadia from the perspective of a range of characters - new and old, high and low. If you are asking "what's the Fall of Cadia?", well, this might not be for you...

    Consider this a narrative, ground level view of the narrative changes Games Workshop made to the 40k universe in 2017, with the last supplements to 7th edition and the beginning of 8th edition. If you are interested in the story of the 40k universe, this sort of bridges that gap.

    But if you just like stories of chainswords and hordes of cultists and the smell of prometheum in the morning, this book is just dozens of individual and connected combat vignettes, from the perspective of Cadians, Mordians, Drookians, Chaos Marines, a very angry Space Wolf scout, and more. A diverting and excellently narrated book, perfect for when you are gluing and painting. If you aren't high on liquid cement and periodically yelling "Cadia Stands", you probably won't enjoy this...

    Dissapointing

    A disjointed mess that fails to keep track of it's characters. It attempts to follow the dog soldiers of Cadia during it's fall but fails to really make you care about any of them save, maybe, Gruber (Kruber?). Forgets the names of ships or even what weapons characters have in hand every other paragraph.

    Way to busy. lots of details but not much story.

    It's like the author tried to squeeze a big story in a little book. don't waste your time on this one.

    Worth it

    I enjoyed it but it leaves a lot of loose ends. The story jumps around a lot, like after you get to kind of know a character it either doesn't get back to them or you learn very little more of them/what happened to them. I get that it's supposed to be chaotic, but that doesn't make the most compelling story. I wish it had given more time to really exploring a few characters. Without giving too much away here, because it was worth it.

    I did not enjoy this book!

    I am a huge 40k fan and LOVE the guard. I play cadians and love books like Gaunt's Ghosts but this book was not for me.
    I was looking forward to reading about the epic fall of Cadia. Instead I got forgettable charkters thrown into a myriad of "battles" that felt more like skirmishes and then often never seen again. Here and there a named Charkter would turn up for a page to be checked off the list. It was both boring and frustraiting, like i missed the fight and just saw the aftermath.
    Allso Cadians are some of the best guard ever but felt rather avrage here. Its frustrating because there are the ingredients of a great storry here but in the end i didnt get invested when there was no main story just overwealming destruction that you often don't even get to see. skip this one.

    addition-

    This book made me so mad I had to go back and edit this post to add a few lines. this book is not only grabage, it's wrong. Pask turns up in his baneblade. Pask wasn't on Cadia when it fell and he drives a Leemam Russ.
    It takes work to make me so mad that I come back to write more. nope skip this

    Great Performance, lackluster story

    Maybe it was all the memes that spoiled this for me, but I felt the story leaving a lot to be desired, it was lacking a high amount of detail and backstory that I think other black library content would have spent more time on.

    Loved the focus on the human characters!

    In this world of Space Marines and Deamons. It is good to see a war story like this told from the all too mortal and human perspective of The Imperial Guard.

    not bad but could be better

    I really love Warhammer 40k books and I really wanted to like this one too. the narrator is not a great fit, he sounds flat and uninterested. the story jumps all around so it never feels like we can get invested in anyone for too long. the book drags for the last few chapters and it has a pretty interesting conclusion for what is supposed to be the fall of Cadia

    Cadia's last stand

    In the future of mankind, there is only war. And for Cadia, the war ends with this book.

    It covers the last stand of the Cadian regiments and their home-planet against the chaos onslaught.

    A good story about the fall of Cadia

    The story is well written and has a good way by introducing a bunch of somewhat main characters of steering the listeners around Cadia, showing the battlefield from different views.
    I just wished there was more backround to the actual fall of the pylons and a little less battle-waging.
    But after all, I'm quite pleased with this book.

    Last point: since I'm not a native speaker it took me some time to accommodate to the Scottish accent of the speaker. Don't get me wrong, he is a very good reader and the accent is pretty slight, but it still took my ears a bit to get used to it.
