Summary

A Space Marine Battles novel

Chaos is unleashed, and things look bleak for Pandorax - until salvation arrives in the form of the entire Dark Angels Chapter, led by Master Azrael and a host of heroes.

Listen to it because: as well as being one of the most brutal conflicts of the Warhammer 40,000 settings, Pandorax also features some of the 41st Millennium's most recognisable heroes and villains, such as Azrael of the Dark Angels, Grand Master Draigo of the Grey Knights, Colonel Iron Hand Straken of Catachans and even Warmaster Abaddon of the Black Legion. Horus Heresy fans will also find links to the novel The Damnation of Pythos set a full 10,000 years earlier. Finally, there's a loveable Jokaero space-ape that drives a tank. That's got to be worth a listen?

The story: in the Pandorax System, on the death world of Pythos, an ancient secret that has laid buried for millennia. Ignorant of this terror, troopers of the Catachan 183rd, stranded on Pythos, find themselves under attack by the forces of Chaos. Daemons in their thousands flock the sky, and none other than Warmaster Abaddon leads the attack. With the Death Guard and Black Legion arrayed against them, the Catachans appear to be doomed, until salvation arrives in the form of the entire Dark Angels Chapter. But what is the so-called 'Damnation Cache'? What secrets does it harbour, and why has it also attracted the attention of the daemon-hunting Grey Knights?

Written by C Z Dunn. Narrated by Gareth Armstrong.

Everyone and his dog

I enjoyed this book. Non stop action but with good humour.

Whole chapter of dark angels with some well named characters.

Gareth Armstrong does a great job of narration. Good voices. Loved his Corpelax voice.

great story, fantastic natation..

great book, but the last half gets a bit repetitive, my main complaint is the ending, it felt rushed, and let most of the mysteries unanswered.

Great story.

Fantastic story, however the voice actor sometimes struggled to keep the characters accent's similar. I feel like this could have been a series of books as the length and characters comings and goings led to some confusion

Terrible

I wouldn’t mind that the story isn’t true to the established lore of it was actually good. Don’t waste your time with this one, it’s definitely worth a miss.

Decent action but a pretty confusing ending

Decent book with okay narration. Confusing ending especially if you're a dark angel fan. I loved the portrayal of Asmodai's voice, pity he only had one line or so.

audio

the only reason I give this book one star is that the audio is so low that its to the point of not worth listening to. If the audio ever gets an upgrade then I will properly rerate the book.

Dark Angels Lover

A very good WH40K book, it covers both the glorious Imperial Guard, and the Adeptus Astartes. For Dark Angels fans I can honestly say, that these will enjoy this book the most. Yet, I believe most 40K fans will like the story, and find the plot twists and cliffhanging Chapter endings to their liking :) The narrating is good, and it is easy to "hang on" as the story progresses. Overall I would say it is very Worth listening to!

Pandorax- an Imperial guard battles novel

Good story and fluff, but really all but one of the Space Marines are the weakest part of it. This book shines when it focuses on the Catachans and Inquisitorial agents, both in story/writing and voice acting.

The other problem is the audio is too low. Id have my volume to max and still couldn't hear parts in my jeep. You really need a quite car or to be in a quiet place to listen.
