Summary

Captain Sicarius awakens on Macragge after his defeat on Damnos, but all is not well in the Ultramarines fortress-monastery.

He is to be placed on trial for his failure, but a worse fate beckons as he has visions of the necrons. Strange things stir in the darkness, and something deadly waits in the shadows for its chance to strike....

it's okay

Story wise nothing actually really happens and you're left feeling it was a bit of a waste of time. The old 'it was all a dream' cop out. Narration is okay, the voice isn't overly pleasant to listen to and can get quite annoying though. Ultramarines are portrayed as ever: honourable warriors without much emotion or reason to care for them. the Necron voice acting is dumb... a much better representation of Necron dialogue and intelligence is available in the Ahriman story: this just has an Overlord saying 'I am Dooooooooooooooooom' which is somewhat laughable, and he says it about 5 times, and it's the same audio clip each time. It's a quick bit of Warhammer action albeit mediocre!

A fun twist to a good story

Cato at his finest. Tempering the Codex with his reckless pragmatism. Throw in visions, necrons, the fortress of Hera and you’ve got a great story that more than action, while still being action packed. I enjoyed it.

Cato Sicarius is back!

Being a fan of Sicarius and loving his apperance in The Fall Of Damnos, I really enjoyed this story. Since it was short, the story didn't really flesh out the other characters such as Marneus Calgar or Captain Agemmon, but the depiction of Sicarius recovering from his wounds from Damnos was spot on. The narrator and the cast did a great job and I enjoyed it very much.
