    Description

    Siege of Terra, Book 6 

    With the Lion's Gate space port taken by the enemy, Jaghatai Khan of the White Scars prepares a brazen gambit, but one of his former brothers rises to take up arms against him.

    Listen to it because: the heroic and dynamic White Scars hurtle headlong into combat with the unyielding Death Guard. As brother battles brother, the fate of Terra itself hangs in the balance.

    The story: the Inner Walls are breached.

    Traitor vanguards tear towards the heart of the Palace, sensing victory. Desperate gambits are attempted: an unwilling saint is released into the ruins, as well as an enthusiastic sinner. A black sword rises, forged from spite, ready to create a legend. But amid the slaughter, Jaghatai Khan, Warhawk of Chogoris, prepares to launch the most audacious strike of the conflict. His goal is nothing less than the liberation of the Lion's Gate space port. Cut off from any help, he stakes everything on one desperate counter-offensive, launched against an old enemy who has been made far greater than he ever was before. As the White Scars ride out against the newly crowned lords of life and death, they know that defeat for them dooms not only the Legion, but Terra itself. 

    Written by Chris Wraight. Narrated by Jonathan Keeble.

    The best Siege of Terra book yet.

    Compared to the Horus Heresy, the Siege of Terra series has been a moderate disappointment up to this point.

    Apart from Graham McNeill's excellent work, the other authors have delivered less than sterling submissions. The novels have been plagued with overstuffed storylines that were terribly disappointing in development and detail.

    The whole thing seemed like rushed product, poorly finished, and not well edited.

    This novel is a departure from this unfortunate norm.

    We know who we are dealing with in this book. Established characters act in character. The plot advances with meaningful events and character development.

    Mortarion, Morag, Typhus, Dorn, Sigismund, the Khan, and even Malcador are developed more in this excellent book.

    Another positive difference is how new or unknown characters are support characters, without an undue amount of story relying on them.

    This novel also graces us by not clubbing the reader with ham-fisted social justice narratives. It is possible to write a good female character without kneeling at a political altar.

    One thing however, don't keep using similar names for new characters; Cassius vs Casca was an irritation for anybody that was a fan of Julius Caesar.

    Keeble did a solid job as narrator, although his White Scar warcries are difficult to take seriously and his voice for Grammaticus is absolutely ear grating, and I'm an American!

    All in all, Wraight and McNeill are the only authors to put in a good Siege of Terra novel so far, and Dan Abnett is my favorite in their stable.

    This is a solid book, I recommend it.

    Unbelievable

    I really think this is the best SOT book. Chris really brought the strain that Dorn is under to us in a way that no other BL author has as well as exactly how powerful these demon Primarchs are.
    The environment is well written and he has a knack for the Scars(imho)
    The huge battle that takes place(between brothers)is easily some of the best fight sequences I’ve read.
    I never write reviews.
    Well.
    Hardly ever.
    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and Jon Keeble read it flawlessly. He really is a treasure. The life he brings to these books is a thing to behold.
    Take this for what it’s worth. Get yours and decide for yourself.

    Mortis part 2, with more style and focus.

    The Legionary content is great, but the Perpetuals subplot was especially weak in this entry. I'd agree that it's the best Siege book, but not Wraight's best.

    the story somehow makes characters bland and uninspiring. the major fight sequence is disappointing.

    High quality

    We all know the overall story; however, so many linking story lines that we grown to care about are really the strength of this series.
    U can feel the despair of the characters as they are stotred down to their core. Born again as new with faith, hope, and duty

    Then we do what we came here for. Target the fleet

    White Scars 10/10 Jaghatai is the Chad of all primarchs. An underrated boss off amongst his brothers who's roasts match that of his sword skill.

    Actual tears

    I’m sleep deprived from having a newborn, but this book had me sobbing to myself as I listened to it. Full of emotion, beautifully written, the best Horus heresy book to date.

    Great book

    One of the better books in the series. Really enjoyed it except for John's voice sounds like the voice from the last book if the narrator got a head cold after someone punched him in the nose. All the other voices were great. If it wasn't for John's voice this book would be all 5 stars.

    Good book

    This book gives you exactly what the cover says: Death Guard and White Scars, and a duel of the respective Primarchs. Also, Sigismund features a lot, and all the other cast get their due screentime.
    I especially liked the treatment of the Death Guard, as this is the way they used to be, all torn up and blaming everyone in their self-loathing - little pride or joy in their mutations, just regret and disgust for what they have become.
    Obviously you get a lot of action sequences, but story progression is fluid and well done. A worthy continuation of the Siege storyline, recommended!

    Superb Storytelling and very good Narrator.

    In comparison to Mortis, which got a bit lost in itself for my taste, Warhawks is a very gripping and good paced Story. I loved every minute.

    Probably the best Book in the Siege of Terra

    One of the best book of the Horus Heresy, on par with Fulgrim or Prospero Burns. Definately the best book in the Siege of Terra so far.
