Summary

Dante is Chapter Master of one of the noblest but most troubled Chapters of Space Marines in the Imperium: the Blood Angels. From the time of his birth in the rad-scarred wastes of Baal Secundus, he was destined for glory and strife.

From his apotheosis to Scout, to the hive cities of Armageddon and the alien menace of the Cryptus system, Dante has waged war against all the enemies of the Imperium. He has witnessed the divine, and struggled against the darkness within all sons of Sanguinius. Longer lived than any other Chapter Master, this is his chronicle, his great and storied legend.

Wow

Gotta say Gareth Armstrong really brought the characters to life. The story itself is very immersive and gives real insight into the life of the blood angels. I highly recommend this audio book to newcomers and to people steeped in lore alike.

Great book!

Not the biggest Blood Angels fan, but this book had me from the go. All about Dante, from his early years with his birth parents, to his later life leading the Angels against the ‘nids in the 41st millennium.

A must for all 40K fans!

A perfect Blood Angel story.

This book was as perfect a Blood Angel story as has ever been released and as a fan of 14 years, it will now always be on the top of my list of Angel novels. bravo.

Dante!

Loved hearing a back story to one of 40k's great
characters, along with the narrative of his home world. Great fun.

Dante is a badass

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would only recommend this audio book to a friend who is a blood angels fan, i feel like they wouldn't appreciate it if they didn't know some of the ranks,titles and rituals of the blood angels.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dante?

During one scene the angels where in the presence of a chapter master they did not like,
Dante spoke to the chapter master as if he was one of his own, showcasing his nobility

Which scene was your favorite?

Early on in the book Dante spoke with Mephiston and the sanguinary guard stood around them in a circle, has to be the best scene in the book

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I didn't intend to listen to it all at once but as the story progressed it kept me listening for hours,

Any additional comments?

10/10 Book, Perfect for any fan of the blood angels or anyone wanting to learn more about our beloved chapter master, The Emperor Protects.

Excellent glimpse into the Origin Story of Dante.

I loved the way the book jumped from his childhood and threw the trials of the blood Angels then go to his first battles. I would recommend this book to any Fan of space marines or blood angels!5

Dante

I'm a simple man, I see Warhammer I buy. But this is a damned good book. I enjoyed listening to it and learning about the recruiting process that would be Space Marines are subjected to. The audio recording is high quality and the story is simple yet full of detail. This book acheived what every good Warhammer book has achieved, it made the Blood Angels and Dante in particular feel human. Which is a nice change of pace for Warhammer. I highly recommend this book to die hard fans and newcomers alike.

Great to hear about Dante!

A book about one of my favorite characters in the tabletop game. After seeing him chop up my friends models on the table it's nice to hear about the story behind the man.

Good but anti-climatic

Young Dante joining the blood angle’s is an awesome story, that just goes on too long. After he’s inducted it just meanders meaninglessly, but the lore nuggets are cool I guess.

Old Dante, the framing device as he remembers his old life is boring AF. He literally spends about 2 days doing desk work, and reading reports about vastly more interesting stories.
