    Description

    A Warhammer 40,000 novel.

    Drawn to a stricken world, the Ultramarines of Crusade Fleet Quintus, believed by many to be cursed, face a stark choice - fight a desperate last stand or doom a sector to warn the Imperium of the rise of a new Necron empire in the Pariah Nexus.  

    Listen to it because: this is the first Warhammer 40,000 novel based on the new edition of the game, and it's packed with amazing action, fantastic characters and tons of intrigue - everything you want in a novel of the Indomitus Crusade.  

    The story: for nearly 10 years, the Indomitus Crusade has waged a war of defiance and reconquest in the war-torn Imperium. 

    Attached to Crusade Fleet Quintus - dubbed the Cursed Fleet by many - the Ultramarines of the Ithraca’s Vengeance are drawn to a stricken world. 

    With millions enslaved, a malign necron technology siphons the souls of the innocent and heralds the Silent Kingdom’s expansion. The Ultramarines face an impossible decision: mount a desperate last stand to destroy the Pariah Nexus, or break away and damn the entire sector to bring word of this ancient foe’s resurgence to the only being capable of halting it - the Lord Primarch Roboute Guilliman.  

    Written by Gav Thorpe. Approx running time 9 hours 51 minutes. Narrated by Robin Bowerman.

    Not Super Impressed

    I generally find Gav Thorpe's writing pretty entertaining if not particularly inspired. Even the most mediocre writing can be lifted up by a good performance, as far as these audiobooks go. John Banks, Toby Longworth, Jonathan Keeble - these guys can totally elevate decent writing by their excellent voice acting and range of voices that they employ. Unfortunately for this audiobook, Robin Bowerman's performance leaves much to be desired in terms of distinction between characters. Most of the audiobook was disjointed and confusing and I had a hard time figuring out what character I was meant to be hearing, and the only thing distinguishing one character from another was the nature of the dialogue. It's also clear that Robin doesn't do a whole lot of reading Warhammer material as his pronunciations and familiarity with some of the things native to 40k didn't seem very consistent. I don't normally say things like this, but I would probably give this one back if I could and just buy the novel, because I'll never give it a second listen. It's a real shame, because most of the recent Ultramarines books have been pretty good. I would recommend picking up the novel instead.

    Those who fight for the dynasties, avoid...

    2 out of 5

    Writing just felt rushed and lost.


    Space marine players ready yourself for GW on its knees once again for a Gene seed oral injection. 


    Necron players avoid. Necron characters over humanized, unforgivable tactical mistakes that shouldn't happen to a race that has fought against gods and over so long a time, and just pure incompetence.


    I might be jaded as a Necron player but it just doesn't follow the feel of how the necrons have been portrayed in the lore and stories I've read.

    Beyond boring

    at first I. wanted to blame the Ultramarines for this being so boring. but it come down the bad combo of the narrator not working and having Black Librarys blandest author write this abomination. if you want to be bored for 9+ hours. this is the audio book for you.

    Worst 40k book I've ever heard

    I've listened to the entirety of the Horus Heresy series, Eisenhorn, Ravenor, Gaunts Ghosts and a few others and this book is by far the worst of the lot. So bad that I had to write my first review after having enjoyed immensely my overall experience with Audible and the Black Library.

    I'm sure there are challenges to narration that I am completely unaware of, the readings by Toby Longworth easily my favorite, but this narrator is so unsuited to this 40k universe it boggles the mind that he was hired for this book.

    Imagine a Primaris Space Marine, a genetically engineered, 9ft tall muscle-dense supersoldier, devout guardian of mankind against the most horrible monstrosities you can imagine voiced by a man that makes them sound like a scrawny, acne-riddled thespian reciting poetry while holding a bouquet of flowers that seem to heavy for him.

    Save your credit/money. Hard Pass.

    Product advertising and jokes that will date it.

    At least the mechanicus has not changed its connections for 8 thousand years. Narration was bad enough my brother quipped that all the narrators for Balck Library had a race to get it submitted first and then it was edited at the last minute. I don't think it was that interesting and the book seemed uninspired. I was expecting a bridge between Watchers and Plague War. They kept crying about it from Plague War to Cawl and I was bored.

    Simply put it was bad.

    key points in short
    1. The story never picked up, left a feeling of there not being a climax, and seems like the book just ended.
    2. The action was dull in comparison to other War Hammer books.
    3. hard to follow due to a lot of jumping around.

    Great story and narration, but questionable necron voicing

    The story was great and narration of the Astartes was perfect, but the necron voices either sounded like they were a high school nerd version of skeletor or a tired deep voiced scooby doo. Made for an experience that might be even better than if the necron voices were intimidating.

    Are we suppose to dislike Primarius Ultramarines

    This was my 40K space marine novel. I have read some of the Horus Heresy novels that deal with Space Marines while they were still larger legions. This books surprised me in the sense that almost none of the main characters seemed very likable. The Ultramarines come of as a mix of arrogant buffoons. The necrons are power hungry villains of little substance. I bought the book because I wanted to feel immersed with the release of ninth edition 40K. However, while the plot points were interesting that characters made it hard to like any of the book. It was very different from other Warhammer fiction I’ve read.

    One of the worst

    Let me say this up front; I adore 40k and am an avid lore nerd. As of this review Indomitus will be my 83rd Black Library book. I am just as big a fan of the dramatic and epic sagas as I am the sillier or more campy aspects of the 30k and 40k universe, there’s fun and entertainment to be found the vast majority of the time.
    Now with all that out of the way, Id like to say that Indomitus us arguably the WORST book Ive ever read set in the Warhammer universe.

    Story - contrived garbage revolving mostly on petulant in-fighting amidst various “battles” that you couldnt care less about. The entire book is a VERY thinly veiled attempt to sell the new Indomitus Crusade miniatures, and often breaks down into the author just reading the marketing pamphlets for each unit, down to basically telling you how to play the unit on the tabletop. Awful, boring and utterly without any creativity in terms of presenting the info.

    Characters - the weakest aspect of an already extremely weak offering. The Ultramarines and Necrons present are literally the worst. Bitchy, back biting, unsure of themselves, whiney and incompetent who only succeed by one random dues ex machina after another. Nobody is likable in the slightest, they all just act like insecure and brooding teenagers with zero nuance and only the most ham fisted and predictable “character development”

    Factions - this is the Ultramarines and the Necrons at their absolute WORST. Even huge fans of either faction should skip this book, as you’ll find nothing of interest here, and if you’re relatively new to 40k lore avoid this like the PLAGUE, as it could very well ruin your interest in either faction.

    Voice Acting - not everyone can be Toby Longworth or Gareth Armstrong, and the narrator didnt have much to work with, so this gets a “passable” grade from me. Nothing egregious, nothing amazing.

    TLDR:
    feels like a book that was crapped out in 3 months in order to bolster sales of a new (and far more exciting) line of miniatures, with a bad and boring story populated with worse characters. AVOID THIS BOOK.

    Disappointing and fairly boring

    Overall it was tough to get through. I didn't enjoy it at all, even though there was some great potential here. It's one of those novels, where the Space Marines felt bland and had no character. The Necron's side was a bit more interesting, but it was still pretty lackluster. This would have been a great opportunity to flesh out the new units and give them substantial lore. We didn't learn much about the Indomitus Crusade either.

    Keine fesselnde Geschichte

    Wie soll ich sagen, der beste Teil war der an dem dieses grausame Werk endlich sein Ende gefunden hat.

    The best part was the moment it was over..
