Summary

A Sabbat Worlds novel.

When the vital forge world of Orestes comes under attack by a legion of Chaos Titans, the planet is forced to appeal for help. The Titans of Legio Invicta respond, committing their own force of war engines to the battle.

Listen to it because....

It's a vision of total war in the 41st millennium, from the smallest soldier to the largest God-Machine.

The story:

When the vital forge world of Orestes comes under attack by a legion of Chaos Titans, the planet is forced to appeal for help. The Titans of Legio Invicta, although fresh from combat and in desperate need of refit and repair, respond, committing their own force of war engines to the battle. As the god-machines stride to war, the world trembles, for the devastation they unleash could destroy the very world they have pledged to save.

Written by Dan Abnett. Narrated by Toby Longworth. Run time 13 hours and 39 minutes

The best Black Library novel ever written...

... and not a single Space Marine in sight! Honestly one of the best science fiction novels of the last couple of decades. It transcends it's warhammer setting and genre. I've read the novel half a dozen times but this new audio version just takes it to another level.

One of the highlights in all of Black Library

A must-listen for any titan lover out there, capturing all aspects of engine war, while also telling a compelling story. I really liked all characters and their characterizations.

This is Mortis as it should have been written

Title says it all really.

Mortis was a huge let down in relation to Engine war. This wasn’t. Dan smashed it again.

Toby Longworth is Dan’s voice simple as that. Phenomenal as always.

Big Titans make brain go brrrr

I've always loved the higher level stories in 40k. The stories about the people who make the decisions and who stand above the muck and the mud. Who could stand above it all better than a titan?

This book is a neat insight into the politics and religion of the Mechanicus while also personalizing the story through the eyes of those who have to live with the reality of towering god engines.

I cant recommend this book enough for people who are curious to see the inside of a titan at war (both tactically and politically).

typical abnett genius

no one tells a story like Dan Abnett. especially a 40k story. he has a true grasp of the setting. what I loved about this book is it wasn't just a book about walking robots shooting at each other. there's way more to it. any Abnett story with Toby Longworth narrating is going to be great

A masterpiece of titan combat

This is a must read for post heresy titan combat. The story feels and reads like a heresy legio on legio but with current narratives mixed in. We see data from the schism of mars rear its ugly head during the climatic battle of the story. This books has the twists and turns of a classic Tom Clancy spy thriller but set in the far future of darkness and despair. You will not be disappointed, the pacing is perfect and while parts may lack the immersive detail 30k and 40k us know for. I promise that these are few and far. Buckle up for a fast pace mechanicus vs dark mechanicus titan combat. The only downside to this book is that there is ZERO, yes ZERO background given about the traitors.

Genuinely Amazing

An inspired author at his best, and a gifted narrator at the top of his game.

Virtually all of Mr. Abnett's works are just incredible but this has got to be one of his best. Likewise, Toby Longworth has such incredible range and here his talents pull you into a living, breathing universe of towering destruction, heretical deception, and desperate sacrifice,

Awesome - In the traditional sense of the word.

There are a lot of different characters and plotlines to keep straight, but in classic Dan Abnett fashion, the conclusion to them is very satisfying.
He uses seemingly unconnected characters to tie together and give Mechanicus flavor to an epic Titan clash.

probably the worst DA books I've read so far

I like to listen to warhammer books and this is probably the worst one that I have listened to so far, it just feels like there was too much trying to be coveted too quickly and the descriptions of each faction were so vague it was hard to tell what was going on
