Description

A Warhammer 40,000 novel

Intent on rebuilding Ultramar, the returned primarch Roboute Guilliman wages war on the treacherous Death Guard - but as he battles his corrupted brother, the intervention of a greater power threatens all he works for.

Listen to it because:

The story of the resurrected Ultramarines primarch continues and brings him face to face - and sword to scythe - with Mortarion....

The story:

In the void and upon the worlds of Greater Ultramar, the battle for the Imperium continues. Intent on rebuilding his home realm and using it as base to reconstruct the ravaged stellar empire of mankind, the returned primarch Roboute Guilliman proceeds with his war to drive Mortarion and his Death Guard Traitor Legion from the domain of the Ultramarines. But when Guilliman brings his brother to battle upon the diseased plains of Parmenio, the intervention of a greater power in their fraternal struggle threatens to upend the Imperial Regent’s understanding of the galaxy and his place within it. Primarchs and ideologies clash in this second, thrilling part of the Dark Imperium trilogy.

Written by Guy Haley. Narrated by John Banks.

important, good but not great

the reader, John Banks, it's not my favorite reader of the black Library set of options. he misses the tone often when the author specifically States that the character spoke in a particular fashion, thanks will not represent that in the line which he is delivering. Sometimes I just work some, most of the time it works out all right anyway.

Haley is one of the better commonly employed writers for black Library. this book does a good job of bringing the Stories full circle within the overarching novel, but certain threads were clearly teased out a little bit too long.

some of the threads dealing with the plague God and his minions just could not end soon enough, they became tedious.

I have noticed some authors showing a difficulty to represent the opposite sex as fully a character has their own sex. Unfortunately, I think this sometimes takes place with Haley. Not often, but on some occasions it does.

now that I have said everything negative, let's get to the positives.

I said that the book was essential, and the total course of events that the novel includes is certainly essential course of events. if a reader were to skip this novel, there would be a very significant hole in the understanding of the lore of the 42nd millennium.

Haley's flaws that I mentioned above are outnumbered by his merits. Haley makes characters able to be felt through their descriptions and their words.

it seems as though black library has not held guy Haley to a specific chapter, or topic, or character, but they appear to allow him to apply his skills to novels that move the story forward. This is good because Haley does a good job of making the Warhammer 40K world stay consistent and come to life between the table top and the pages of fiction.

not every black Library author accomplishes this. Some authors, even some that seem to be lauded, like Aaron dembski-bowden, manage to work their lack of life experience and ignorance of the Canon of the lore of Warhammer 40K into fiction novels in such a way as to make the novels marginalized in the eyes of fans that actually pay attention.

Guy Haley rights in accordance with Canon. He writes well. He writes in such a way that you can follow his understanding of what is taking place.

although Guy Haley's writing should not be considered formulaic, it is sometimes certainly predictable. to be fair however, in the "grim darkness of the far future", the lowered anxiety of a little predictability is appreciated on occasion.

guy Haley writes the primarch roboute guilliman well. He also has a good handle on mortarion and his internal struggles. having read recently novels which focused on mortarion, the translation from a different author to Haley has been seamless. Haley took the tone and feeling of the characters and brought them through in a true fashion.

a final compliment is that guy Haley does a marvelous job providing a sensory experience for the reader, one which the character is in his story are placed. you can taste the actinic quality in the air. the foul sweetness of Decay fills your nostrils. the uncomforting slosh and give of the earth beneath your feet in the mud seems to be felt as you are reading or listening.

I look forward to his next book.

Inconsistent volume

Volume inconsistent. Especially Nurgle demon's talk was extremely loud. Some parts like the child saint was extremely quiet.

Great book and acting, terrible sound mix

This is a fantastic book full of important insights and events. It's also well acted. The huge downside is the difference in volume, especially battle cries and the musings of Nurgle's legions.

Book 1 Questions Answered Here

Great listen, and the implications of what was left unresolved in Dark Imperium is overcast by what is yet to come. I am eagerly awaiting the next chapter in this saga.

Epic Sequel for a Grand War

Loved this story and narration. The story is phenomenal and gripping, and the voice acting is on another level with all the ranges of voices.

Gerade so annehmbarer zweiter Teil

Es geht weiter mit dem guten Robert und dem Imperium. Im zweiten Teil der Reihe läuft alles auf eine großen Schlacht hinaus, bei dem Imperium und Chaos (die Mächte von Nurgel) versuchen, sich gegenseitig mit der Macht ihrer Armeen zu überbieten. Das Gleiche versucht der Autor Guy Haley. Das Schema, dass er dafür verwendet, ist repetitiv und leider sehr durchschaubar. So treffen in seine Geschichte zwar zwei epische Heere, Robert und sein Bruder Mortarion und diverser andere Helden des Imperiums aufeinander, so richtig Spannung kommt aber nur auf, wenn sich die Charaktere auch untereinander unterhalten. Die ausführlichen Kriegsbeschreibungen ermüden nämlich nach einer Weile. Leider besteht das Buch hauptsächlich auf solche Schilderungen. Drei Sterne, weil der dritte und wohl letzte Teil, vielleicht besser wird.
