Publisher's Summary

When the world of Armageddon is attacked by orks, the Black Templars Space Marine Chapter are amongst those sent to liberate it. Chaplain Grimaldus and a band of Black Templars are charged with the defence of Hive Helsreach from the xenos invaders in one of the many battle zones.

But as the orks' numbers grow and the Space Marines' numbers dwindle, Grimaldus faces a desperate last stand in an Imperial temple. Determined to sell their lives dearly, will the Black Templars hold on long enough to be reinforced, or will their sacrifice ultimately be in vain?

    "Excellent narration brings the book to life"

    The narrator really couldn't have been better. Made the book very enjoyable. Highly recommended and I'll be looking to see what else he has narrated.

    Story
    "Purging the alien with righteous fury!"

    Really enjoyed this dark and gritty story, most of it told from Grimaldus' perspective. You do very easily find yourself becoming invested in the characters. I especially liked the stark differences between the Black Templars and the Salamanders.

    It is an older book now and would love to see a sequel but it is a very well told, self contained story.

    Story
    "Good, solid book."

    Not Aaron’s best work, but a good story with good strong characters, as you’d expect from the Black Templars. The clash of personalities, culture, and philosophies with The Salamanders chapter is good as well. Well worth a read/listen if you’re a fan of these sons of Dorn.

    "Excellent 40k story"

    Accessible to newcomers to the 40k world, a wonderful, character driven narrative that is satisfying & enjoyable. The narrator, Jon Keeble, does a wonderful job & is pleasant to listen to. Recommended, though I would note this story offers no juicy tidbits or secrets, nor does it advance any greater narrative.
