Summary

Siege of Terra, Book 2

The Solar War is over. The Siege of Terra has begun. As the Traitors unleash their deadliest weapons, the defenders of the Throneworld face nightmare and plague - but Terra must stand.   

Read it because: discover the lengths to which Horus will go to claim Terra as his own - and the horrors he is willing to set upon its defenders.  

The story: on the 13th day of Secundus, the bombardment of Terra began. With the solar defences overcome through the devastating strength of the Traitor armada and the power of the warp, Horus launches his assault on the Throneworld in earnest. After withstanding a ferocious barrage of ordnance, an immense ground war commences outside the Palace, with every inch gained paid for in the lives of billions. The front lines are beyond horrific, and the very air is reduced to poison and blood. Bodies are thrown into the meat grinder, but the outer redoubts cannot possibly hold for long, even with the loyal primarchs to reinforce them. 

For Horus has his own generals to call upon. Between the plague weapons of Mortarion and the fury of Angron, the defenders face a losing battle.  

Written by Guy Haley. Narrated by Jonathan Keeble.

Great second chapter to the siege!

For people who thought Solar war didn't have enough bolter porn action have no worries here with Lost and the Damned, it goes through great lengths to give you a picture of just how monumental the scale of the fight is and at the same time it's still very clearly just the start with many characters and threads being left for the future books. I knocked off a star because fo some reason there's a technical glitch with chapter 17 being repeated and thus the book not being as long as my app says it is. Should probably get that looked at.

As ever J.Keeble delivers an amazing story with incredible talent. One issue, it misses chapter 16 and gives us 17 twice! WTH?

they stretched it again

i guess there will be a couple of more books till Sanquinius makes a dent in Horusis armor... a total skipp. You dont learn anything new and revealing. The most intrresting story is the one of Skraivok... its starting to turn into a disney star wars. i dont get how anyone can give it 5 stars.

Superb story and narration

Guy Haley, you bow to no one. Jonathan Keeble needs no praise, in the world of Warhammer narration he is a synonym for job well done.

Second book in the Siege of Terra

Amazing. Excellent continuation from the first. Moving straight onto the third book now! I can genuinely recommend to any Sci-fi fan and it’s an absolute must for any Warhammer 40l enthusiast.

One star for a missing chapter

Seriously, is it that hard to check and make sure it’s done right? I’ll change the rating when it’s fixed.

Missing chapter 16

The story and performance are great, but it's missing chapter 16. In its place, it just plays chapter 17 twice. I've submitted a support ticket, but you should probably skip it until it's fixed.

Ongoing war

The second book of the siege of Terra was better than the last in my opinion. Action with no flashbacks to possibly confuse readers, I thoroughly enjoyed the interactions of Horus and his brothers as well as the POV of primarchs, space marines, normal humans, etc. Once I heard Angron talking, I was reminded of the Decepticons and I couldn't un-hear it. It brought a touch of humor to his parts which were macabre (understandable because you know...Angron.) I'd recommend this book for sure.

Why three stories?

Not sure why BL is trying to turn every novel into the last 15 minutes of Phantom Menace with 3+ stories going and none of them done well, but it's a trend and it's time to stop. There are interesting parts, but besides the Primarchs no one gets developed properly. It's not that they're not distinct or they're not developed enough, it's just that every scene is separated with the next scene from a different story and it's almost entirely unnecessary to do it. Just present a book with three shorter stories. If the timelines need to coincide, use a chronological landmark.

Typical Black Library

You’d never know that space marines were superhuman amazing warriors with how badly written they are. Black library writers need some understanding of war, small unit tactics and both armed and unarmed combat before they try and write about it

Excellent telling of the foundational WH40k battle

I have found the desperate attempts of Warhammer40k to increase it's bottom line by shoehorning women into men's role very off-putting since it always seems to me that there is nothing feminine about the characters and I find it hard to envision women fighting the battlefield in any useful or realistic way. But this story was different. This was an excellent AudioBook that I will listen to multiple times I am sure. Games Workshop should take a lesson from Guy Haley. Yes female characters should be included but not in a way that immediately makes you think that whatever she is doing would be better done by a man. The "Guant's Ghosts" novels are particularly good at this. Overall an excellent novel.
