Description

The Battle Titans of the Adeptus Titanicus are towering war engines, striding to war as holy effigies of the Omnissiah. Greatest of all are the mighty Warlord Titans, their weapons bringing righteous death to alien and heretic alike. Still reeling from a near disastrous battle against tyranids, the Pallidus Morr demi-legio is assigned to a new warzone, a nearby forge world which has fallen under the sway of Chaos.

Here their battered war-machines must fight alongside another Titan Legion, the Imperial Hunters. As city after city falls before the relentless tread of Chaos war machines, the Imperium's only chance of victory lies in the two legios putting aside their differences and fighting as one.

Once it got going...

While I had a hard time getting into it at the start, once I did get into the story, I was completely and utterly sucked in. Great story!

Good Titan Action

While I wouldn't qualify this as an excellent book it was still well written and had good action sequences of Titans blowing each other apart. Which is what I was looking for. So I was well satisfied.

Didn't even finish it.

Maybe Dan Abnett and Toby Longworth set the bar to high. I stopped listening at chapter 9 and the story never pulled me in. For a book about God Machine Titans, it was underwhelming.

Mediocre but passable

Character development doesn’t start until about an hour and a half in. I bought this book mostly for some titan inspiration, but found the titan characters fairly flat and boring. Everybody in this book is a grimdark stereotype. The preacher is bombastic and quick to anger. The titan princeps are haughty and quick to anger. Just about everyone in this book is quick to anger over the slightest insult. If you’re hoping for something along the quality of Mechanicum, I think you’ll be sorely disappointed.

The only draw is titans

The story is simple and straightforward, the lack of twists is almost a twist in its own. It's predictable, and the only surprises are things the author chooses to forego, rather than the opposite.

The enemy groups don't really have any character, and aren't foes to defeat, but rather just faceless obstacles to be overcome. No propert antagonists, just faceless forces of nature.

There are several times that I wondered over travel times between battles, and journeys that should take days are seemingly done in a small handful of hours.

It is however reasonably exciting in the first half, until the pattern has settled. But it eventually does; another after another desperate battle, where practically faceless, and wholly uncharacterized characters are sacrificed to defeat completely faceless and equally uncharacterized enemies.

It has plenty of titans, and that is rare enough that the book is readable anyhow. Just don't expect any kind of quality.

I have no problems with the narration though. It doesn't do anything special, but it keeps the characters reasonably separate, and I see no reason to complain.

Great listen

Great story. Its sometimes difficult to judge the shift to a different story ark since the pause is fairly short but otherwise I have no complaints.

Fantatic Story, with great characters.

The story was really well written, giving alot of depth to the Titans and answering some questions about there functions and pilots. Delves into the politics of nobles and the burdens that come with Pride. Each character I got invested in, they were interesting and unlike many a Warhammer story it didn't feel like plot armor was largely in play. Overall I absolutely recommend even if you care little for the lore of the Titans as it deals with much more than just them.

Close to being good

***Spoilers included***

The start of the book was amazing, the tyranids should have been the main villains for this novel. When the titans redeployed and faced the traitors the book fell short. The titans were exploding so often and with such frequency I felt like I was reading about guardsmen in an Ork invasion. The Titan on Titan action was only good in two parts the rest was a very good job at describing explosions. The side plots needed more time to develop and the main character was stripped of all choice for the entire novel which was pretty boring.

A dull story. Terrible Narration!

Warhammer 40K is a rich and imaginative universe replete with unique and entertaining tales of war, adventure, and treachery. Unfortunately, this isn’t one of those stories. A dull story tediously told, Warlord is a challenge to complete. Worse still, the narrator infuses the characters with overly dramatic attitude no matter what the situation itself actually calls for. On top of his poorly chosen depiction of characters, the narrator routinely mispronounces words in the most annoying fashion.

disappointing

Very grim dark, which was expected, but with boring storyline. it's kinda interesting how a story about Titans can end up so uninteresting.
