Description

As the Warmaster's campaign of galactic domination continues, his generals seek out fresh battlefields to conquer. After leaving the Crone World of Iydris behind, Perturabo strikes for Tallarn. A bitter, vengeful primarch, the lord of the Iron Warriors unleashes a deadly bombardment against the world, killing millions but entrenching the survivors.

A brutal, all-consuming armoured conflict ensues, the greatest of the war and one that grinds down all combatants over more than a year of relentless battles. But Perturabo's reasons for the attack are about more than unleashing punitive destruction against the Imperium - he has an entirely darker purpose in mind.

Tigers in the mud with plot.

When this book gets to the tank fighting, it reads like Otto Carius' Tigers in the Mud. It is a terrifying projection of the grim dark war of the Horus Heresy, well researched and painted in grissly realism. Unfortunately, the grandeur of the horus heresy is also its greatest weakness. You are torn from the viseral writing of combat into the murky politics and connivings of demi-gods and assassins. To me, the need to explain why cheapens the book from great to merely good.

troubles to follow

I didn't particularly like the narrator in the first few stories. Because of this, I found myself getting annoyed by his pronounciations and expressions.

Right Up There With The Best In The Series

Excellent listen. Loved the story. The narration was good but had some room for improvement. My major sticking point was the performance in relation to the female characters and the dreadnought. Still very good but could have been spiced up with either some more sound effects/voice modulation for the dreadnought and a female narrator for at least some of the female parts.

I was a little worried when it looked, initially, like it would be a anthology but it has a single major storyline told through a number of different viewpoints. Overall it comes together nicely. The story is not as contemplative as some the early entires in the series but miles above the bad ones. It has a feel of gravitas and epic scale that is sometimes lacking in the large scale novels. None of the characters are really super touching but each has their own points. I recommend.

Optional headline that is mandatory

Audible app is quite a con artist. It's always trying to sneak one more star than what I pushed. About the book, it seems that I'm different. I've read that many like the first part a lot and dislike the latter. It was the opposite for me.
