Summary

The Blood Angels Chapter of Space Marines is under threat. Having obliterated all human life in the Red Scar region of space, the largest tendril of Hivefleet Leviathan ever seen in the Imperium has converged and is making relentlessly for Baal. 

To face this awesome foe, Commander Dante has called upon the Successor Chapters of the ancient Ninth Legion. The Sons of Sanguinius gather in numbers not seen since the dark days of the Horus Heresy. Thirty thousand Space Marines stand ready to thwart the Great Devourer, save the homeworld of their primarch, and prevent the consumption of billions in the Ultima Segmentum beyond. 

But the tyranid swarm numbers in the trillions, and they are not the only danger to the chapter’s future. As the galaxy slides toward a terrifying new era, events far away threaten to unleash a greater evil. A further enemy must also be overcome, that of the Black Rage that lurks in the souls of all Sanguinius’ bloodline.

Great book

I’m a fan of the Blood Angels, but I think anyone who enjoys tales of Astartes, and flawed ones, will enjoy this. Dante is an intriguing character and the tension between the autonomous chapters is portrayed really well here. The Tyranids and the threat they pose are brought to shocking life and Guy Haley has done a great job with pacing and description, showing the slow, but seemingly inevitable, defeat of the Blood Angels. Great ending which, surprisingly for 40K, leaves you feeling hopeful. Worth listening to for anyone looking for some action while advancing the story into the 42nd millennium.

Nobility and Humanity

Guy Haley writing and performance by Gareth Armstrong brought me to the edge of my seat and to the brink of tears, this story adds so much to the advancing narrative of the 40k IP.

Brilliantly performed and excellently paced

This book takes care to explain aspects of the astartes and the tyranids in detail without hindering your enjoyment. The set pieces feel suitably epic while more subtle aspects of the story are also captured. Highly recommended

For Sanguinius!

Amazing sequel to Dante and brilliantly connects the new Imperium to the old Imperium of the 41st millennium

The best gw book out there!

Very hard to put down once started. They really captured the chapter perfectly, right down to poor commander Dante. (not a spoiler, you have to feel sorry who's fought over 1 k years!)

What an excellent book. a great addition to the, already rich, Warhammer 40,000 universe.
The characters were well read and the story was gripping and emotional.

Missing last chapter

I would have rated this all 5s, but it's missing the final chapter, one that is fairly important to the overall story. Especially annoying, since it's advertised as being "Unabridged".

Where is chapter 30????

Chapter 30 is missing which is the epilogue!! This audio book is incomplete. I have no idea if this is intentional.

missing the last chapter

i loved reading this book but i was disappointed when listening to it to find that the full ending is not there... it ends early and leaves out a huge plot point with the Flesh Tearers

Good, but missing the last chapter.

The book was good. The narration was good. The fact that the last chapter is MIA is doubleplusungood.

Missing chapter 30

Well written and narrated; but sadly missing the 30th and final chapter. Despite being advertised as the unabridged version.

Great story, but Audible is missing Chapter 30.

I enjoyed it, but it was a real bummer when Audible didn't include Chapter 30. WTF?

Missing chapters

This is missing the last 2 chapters. Rating 1 star until this is fixed. I listened to the whole book just to find out the very end is missing....

Amazing book and Narration!

The Story is amazing Chapter 30 has been added, I know some reviews were saying it was missing but the complete book is here and it is worth every minute. I would highly recommend the book Dante as well it is a great back setting or prequel to this book.

Great Audiobook and includes Chapter 30

Well versed in the Warhammer 40K lore and this book added to my knowledge about the sons of Sanguinius. Great story and characters. A lot of reviews said the book was missing the last chapter, but mine included chapter 30 so I believe Audible fixed the issue. Definitely worth the listen.

A story marred by deus ex machina.

Like many 40k stories, much of the typical struggles and plot lines can be easily expected by avid reader of the series. It is to my belief that many of us read such novels for the little elements in which we can gleam to better flesh out a universe in which we've come to enjoy so well over the years, the fluff making the very substance of which we continue to subsist upon. And then the new edition came and it seems like every single story ends with, and I should preface this with a warning...

***SPOILER***

The damned return of the Primarch Cheesey McCheese face Guilliman and his Primaris ilk. Like a mic drop, they swoop in and ends everything in an attempt to draw every single loose end that's been going on in the 41st millennium into a confusing bundle. Ogryn writing is what this is, with them forcing the narrative to continue with a brute's sensibility. How I've come to loathe the way so many of the recent novels have ended in such similar ways. So go ahead I say. Let them churn out a few more of these and get it over with so we can go back to the usual fluff filled books we've come to enjoy. Can't wait for this phase of terrible writing to be over.
