Description

The Horus Heresy Book 53

War is unleashed on Beta-Garmon as the armies of the Emperor attempt to hold back the tide of Chaos in the last major clash before Horus reaches Terra itself - and the God-machines of the Adeptus Titanicus are on the front line.  

Read It Because: The long-awaited and much-teased battle of Beta-Garmon is here, and with armies of Titans clashing in brutal no quarters combat, Guy Haley has crafted a remarkable tale.  

The Story: Horus’ armada gathers, and he has defeated all enemies sent against him, even the Emperor’s own executioner. One barrier remains before he can strike for Terra and lay waste to the Emperor’s dream.  

The Beta-Garmon system occupies the most direct and only viable route to the Solar System and Terra. To break it, Horus assembles a war host of incredible proportions and Titans in untold numbers. To lose here is to lose the war, and Horus has no intention of turning back. But the Imperium understands the importance of Beta-Garmon too. A massive army is arrayed, comprised of near numberless army cohorts and a mustering of Titans to challenge even the martial might of the Warmaster.  

Titans fight against Titans as the God-machines of Loyalists and Traitors alike go to war. This conflict will be like no other before it, a world-ending battle that will determine the next phase of the war.  

Written by Guy Haley.

the worst 40k book ever.

skip this one. you won't learn anything new or cool about Titans. in fact this book ruins a lot of the lore surrounding the princeps themselves. also you can expect lots of current year politics. in other words this book is one giant feminist rag. none of 40K is based in reality but this is a Step Beyond stupid into the retarded. HORRIBLE

Diving into the grains of the machine cult.

While this is not the entry level parlance dictionary into the heresy you might be looking for:
The premise that this is supposedly 'the worst book of the Horus Heresy' seems to be predicated on it following a Marshall Sorority within the mechanicus and collegia titanica.
As we get a deeper look into the world of the dark mechanicum, the intercollegiate politics of the crusade and biological childrearing within the cult. All the while fleshing out the khan, dorn sanguinius and Malcador and giving us a last check in with both horus and legio Mortis.
I can only surmise that the view that this book focuses solely on missable characters could only be sourced from someone either wilfully overlooking, or being entirely ignorant of the Transhumanist nature and implications of that within the mechanicus. As well as the importance of the primarchs involved in the conflict.

a somewhat boring conclusion to a huge set up

the Battle of Beta Garmon has been alluded to as a massive battle between the biggest forces of Titans in the HH and ever after.

I was really excited for this entry. it isn't bad. there's an interesting personal story throughout the whole novel, but we are here to see this massive battle unfold and this story feels very small. the few set piece battles that occur are essentially glossed over and the sense that this massive campaign over the course of a few months isn't really conjured here. more time is spent on describing how the battlefield is cleaned up than that actual battle itself and the presence of two primarchs are barely felt at all.

overall I was pretty disappointed. Tallarn and Mechanicus and Vengeangeful Spirit do a much better job of capturing the essence of what a Titan fight really feels like.

as always though Keeble is the best narrator I've ever heard. Guy Haley's stuff is generally passable but not on the level of Abnett and Dembski-Bowden.

Legio First!

Guy Haley delivers another fantastic work of science fiction. exciting. heartbreaking. And fantastic stories of giant robots smashing each other.

Bad A$$.

Great book. Guy Haley did a great job of depicting the men and women who command the God machines of the collegia titanica.

Too much fluff

25 pages of how it feels to fight a titan per 5 pages of action.

Hot Titian on Titan action

Amazing voice acting engages you fully into what it means to fight inside of a metal god of war. Voids go down and titans fall in one of the best warhammer novels I’ve ever listened to. The biggest Titan on Titan battle in the history of the empire of man takes place with two primarchs involved. If this doesn’t make you consider taking out a second mortgage to afford the Warlord model I don’t know what will.

story is good, voices are incredibly annoying.

literally only like three or four characters had voices that seemed appropriate, others were terrible.

Same

Repeating the same line over and over is not good writing. Unfortunately, way too many books have this flaw. Common, and bad.

Sehr schön.

Gute Englischkenntnisse vorausgesetzt, ein sehr unterhaltsames und erstklassig vorgetragenes Audiodrama, dass man auch losgelöst von den Büchern und anderen Audiobooks genießen kann.
