Summary

The Battle Titans of the Adeptus Titanicus are towering war engines, striding to war as holy effigies of the Omnissiah. Greatest of all are the mighty Warlord Titans, their weapons bringing righteous death to alien and heretic alike. Still reeling from a near disastrous battle against tyranids, the Pallidus Morr demi-legio is assigned to a new warzone, a nearby forge world which has fallen under the sway of Chaos.

Here their battered war-machines must fight alongside another Titan Legion, the Imperial Hunters. As city after city falls before the relentless tread of Chaos war machines, the Imperium's only chance of victory lies in the two legios putting aside their differences and fighting as one.

Weak start, Strong middle, nonsense finish

Im a big tread and titan fan so figured this book would be right up my alley. Its not... I mean the Warlord titan arguably isnt even the focus of the book half the time :/

The whole opening planet was fairly forgettable, though the initial section on Kitara with the cults is interesting and tense as soon as the lava starts exploding everywhere the book spirals downhill before some how jumping a shark :D A lot of the characters are one note which can be fine but half the POV characters are tedious and add very little if anything, just throwing of the pace of the main plot.

Disappointing really.

Relentless and majestic.

This is basically titans, banelords, god-machines and tanks pummelling the crap out of one another. Nothing wrong with that! Highly recommended.

Meh, the worst aspects of BL

I was looking forward to a good 40k Titan novel, for me this is not it.

The good
Good production values
Classic grim dark story

The bad
Sadly, Titan combat feels like a normal battle but with big combatants, distances are far too short for machines of this size
I disliked the main character and most of the imperial characters, the main character came across as annoying

I'd skip this and find some Titan action in other BL novels, I haven't got the 2nd in the series and have no interest in wasting a credit on trying it

kinda boring for a 40k book, also not enough titan

really not sure if the authors read any of the other titan books the engagements are a bit bland and don't stand out as much to me as others. On top of this as a book about titans there's a lot of other characters pov which is ok but I find one of them a bit dull. performance is great except for the pronunciation of skitarii which being a book about titans comes up fairly often giving him a star less. gave up an hour from the end, the first 40k or Horus heresy where I decided to give up not because I didn't like it just because I really didn't care about the story and how it was going to end. if you're really interested in titans and the ministorum I guess this is for you I'd recommend any other 40k or Horus heresy book first such as Titandeath

A good look at the planet breaking power of titans

I enjoyed the action and the atmosphere described in the book. I liked the descriptions of how ridiculously large the titans were. The plot of the story had enough elements to keep things interesting enough to continue. It wasn't the most enthralling story I've gone through, but the atmosphere and emotions of the characters carried me through to the end.
I must say the narrator does this audiobook justice. A very good performance.

Really interesting

Narration was great and an interesting look into titan legions. True to the grim dark setting.

The god machines walk!

I quite enjoyed this excursion. there aren't many books or moments for the titans to shine in the lore, and let's face it, the titans are awesome.
could do with a sequel. what becomes of the palledus mor. how does cresoc do with now leading her battle group? Will she get the blame for the losses? where will they be deployed next? do they make it back to full strength or thrown into another amalgamation?

jhon banks did a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life and making them believable.

Average story, good performance

There's a few good story beats but generally not as gripping as other Titan novels.

Once it got going...

While I had a hard time getting into it at the start, once I did get into the story, I was completely and utterly sucked in. Great story!

Good Titan Action

While I wouldn't qualify this as an excellent book it was still well written and had good action sequences of Titans blowing each other apart. Which is what I was looking for. So I was well satisfied.

Didn't even finish it.

Maybe Dan Abnett and Toby Longworth set the bar to high. I stopped listening at chapter 9 and the story never pulled me in. For a book about God Machine Titans, it was underwhelming.

Mediocre but passable

Character development doesn’t start until about an hour and a half in. I bought this book mostly for some titan inspiration, but found the titan characters fairly flat and boring. Everybody in this book is a grimdark stereotype. The preacher is bombastic and quick to anger. The titan princeps are haughty and quick to anger. Just about everyone in this book is quick to anger over the slightest insult. If you’re hoping for something along the quality of Mechanicum, I think you’ll be sorely disappointed.

Titans! Tyranids! Chaos! What's not to love?

Listen to the real reviews. I can't say exactly what is wrong with this book. I believe it must be a combination of the story and the narrator. The story has all the possibility of being awesome... but it's not. The narrator isn't bad, but he doesn't pull you in. Sadly, skip this book.

Titan action- not much else.

The narrator does a great job narrating voices, their inflections, and intended tones. The story itself is just kind of there. The big robots fight, people shout "for the emperor!" and the like, chaos does evil stuff. Basic, but listenable.

Not as good as I was expecting

I'm a big Collegia Titanica fan but too many POVs to keep track of. You have the guardsmen, two Titan legions and a group of refugees turned fighters. Honestly, not as good as I was expecting

The only draw is titans

The story is simple and straightforward, the lack of twists is almost a twist in its own. It's predictable, and the only surprises are things the author chooses to forego, rather than the opposite.

The enemy groups don't really have any character, and aren't foes to defeat, but rather just faceless obstacles to be overcome. No propert antagonists, just faceless forces of nature.

There are several times that I wondered over travel times between battles, and journeys that should take days are seemingly done in a small handful of hours.

It is however reasonably exciting in the first half, until the pattern has settled. But it eventually does; another after another desperate battle, where practically faceless, and wholly uncharacterized characters are sacrificed to defeat completely faceless and equally uncharacterized enemies.

It has plenty of titans, and that is rare enough that the book is readable anyhow. Just don't expect any kind of quality.

I have no problems with the narration though. It doesn't do anything special, but it keeps the characters reasonably separate, and I see no reason to complain.

Great listen

Great story. Its sometimes difficult to judge the shift to a different story ark since the pause is fairly short but otherwise I have no complaints.
