Summary

The Imperium's situation has never been more grim - an ork attack moon hangs over Terra, and ork armadas ravage human space. To make matters even worse, eldar strike at the heart of the Imperial Palace, forcing humanity's defenders to fight on two fronts at once. Though it seems nothing can stop the orks - neither brute force, science, nor faith - an unlikely alliance in the farthest reaches of space uncovers the first clue how to defeat the greenskins. The Adeptus Astartes now face an almost impossible task: taking news of this discovery back to Terra through a galaxy teeming with orks.

Ork bashing, political twisting, heresy inducing

loved this book, a great listen to push this series in to space marine action once more.

the worst book so far in the series

the dialogue is boring and uninteresting. predictable plot. what happened to the Eldar in the end? it reads like a rough draught of the book. No editing has been done to make the writing interesting or create a concept of scene or character. I I listened because I wanted to see what happens in the series and the others have been really good so far, but this is definitely a step down. I hope the next one is better.
