    Description

    A Space Marine Conquests novel

    The Word Bearers have come to despoil the Ecclesiarchy world of Almace - and it will take the Space Marines and the world's secretive leaders working together to prevent an apocalypse....

    Listen to It Because:

    Apocalypse is all about the biggest battles, and Josh Reynolds delivers that in this tale of three Space Marine Chapters waging war, with the fate of an entire world hanging in the balance.

    The Story:

    Following the cataclysmic Great Rift, forces from the Imperial Fists, White Scars and Raven Guard mobilise to defend the cardinal world of Almace from an invasion by the twisted traitors of the Word Bearers....

    Lieutenant Heyd Calder is a Primaris Marine whose mastery of warfare is matched only by his diplomatic prowess. Under the orders of Roboute Guilliman, he is deployed to Almace, a minor seat of the Ecclesiarchy, to protect the world at whatever cost. Yet even as diabolical forces leer from the system's edge, Calder discovers that the capital's Cardinal-Governor, a sharp, inscrutable figure of spiritual and material authority, is hiding something. When it becomes clear that conquest is not the enemy’s sole aim, Calder resolves to uncover the secret of Almace. As the system is set ablaze, clashes of faith, strategy and politics ensue in the capital, and it becomes clear that the forces of the Ecclesiarchy and the Adeptus Astartes must fight together if they are to have any hope of victory.

    the Apocalypse turns out to be a pretty good read.

    rumor is that Josh wrote this book in a month. if so that's an impressive feat. he knows his stuff, the story moves around briskly, and divides well into four or five sub narratives. everything makes sense and there's some genuine tension as to what's going to happen to characters. plot is strong, and so is the general theme. it all goes well with the standard warhammer trappings. characterization is the weak point, and would have gained the most from more time. the good guys are fairly flat, especially the imperial fists, the Raven, and the sisters of battle. the white scars come off well. it should surprise no one who's read Reynolds fabius bile books that his strong suite is traitor space Marines. the word bearers are fantasticly characterized, full.of passion, and have the most realized motivations and interactions. narration was solid. reeds always good, but I question two of the choices. the lead human comes off a bit weaker than I think he was written. and the second word bearers comes off a bit more craven. anyways a solid B rating.

    when you start you cannot

    I'll have to say this is one of the better performances I've heard so far. The storyline has you engrossed in the characters and their views passing moments of the story. A great book to listen and sitting down or while driving.

    An Epic Tale written on loose-leaf notebook paper

    Reynolds captured characters in a way that is engaging and cuts to the essence of them in a way that is understandable in the setting and the background of the universe in which they are in. They were adequately three dimensional, nobody was playing-against-the-type in a way that was jarring, their foibles and virtues were not magnified in a way that was off-putting, and they were all believable for the universe of the setting. The down-side to the story was the setting itself which I feel came up a bit short of the plot devices that were used. The Cardinal World didn't feel very fleshed out for the plot threads that were used that were more than adequately engaging and that is its only failing. It is not hard to immerse yourself in the characters and the plot, but the world-stage itself is not immersive. Individual plot points are engaging; there is a competent mystery occurring, the plotting and duplicity is engaging if a bit predictable, the differences between the legions and the backgrounds of their warriors as well as the denizens of the Cardinal World and their various backgrounds are well thought out and makes the reader want to know more about them. The characters themselves are interesting enough that I want to know more about them, I'd like to see them in other stories and experience their continued adventures. Reynolds manages to make the Astartes seem unique and reasonably different from one another based on the background and culture of their parent chapters (legions) where many other authors tend to merge the rather generic archetypes into one another and create tons of the same character, just in different colored armors. Reed is a decent narrator, but other than how generic the Cardinal World feels, his performance would be the only other thing that could be considered weak in the narrative. Since Black Library has worked with other narrators with a far greater range of characterization and vocalization he can, perhaps unfairly, be considered weaker in this regard but he doesn't serve to excessively take one out of the story nor diminish interest. At the end of the day, not everyone can be Jonathan Keeble or Toby Longworth.

    A good look at primaris

    A good mix of characters, a good story and a good insight at how primaris work in the universe. I was hesitant about the primaris, but this novel made em reconsider my position.

    Dull

    It was honestly a dull, and boring listen. The narrator was good but the story lame. It had great potential but just dragged on and on. Possibly a better audio drama than full length novel. Would not recommend

    Great story, difficult performance

    Apocalypse was a pretty great listen. there are a few flaws as well however. First, the character spread was exhausting. far to many characters to follow, which leads to the second issue. Second, many of the characters "shared similar voices" this may be the cause of only one voicing everyone instead of several people. The final issue is again tied into character voices, having only one voice for several characters created a lot of problems. for a much better performance I would look at the Watchers of the Throne series by Chris Wright. much better performances and diverse cast of characters

    Messy

    Not the quality of some other 40K novels. Lots of tell, and muddled show.
