Publisher's Summary

When the world of Armageddon is attacked by orks, the Black Templars Space Marine Chapter are amongst those sent to liberate it. Chaplain Grimaldus and a band of Black Templars are charged with the defence of Hive Helsreach from the xenos invaders in one of the many battle zones.
But as the orks' numbers grow and the Space Marines' numbers dwindle, Grimaldus faces a desperate last stand in an Imperial temple. Determined to sell their lives dearly, will the Black Templars hold on long enough to be reinforced, or will their sacrifice ultimately be in vain?

Really enjoyed it!

ADB does a good job of switching perspectives to different factions/viewpoints for a single battle in a planetary invasion. This keeps things interesting & fresh.

a bit rushed

have read many many warhammer books over the years, both 40k and the medieval style, this is my first audio book of warhammer. although I really enjoyed it, it just seems like it was a bit rushed at certain points of the story, especially the ending. no spoilers, kinda expecting more drawn out conflicts

New to Warhammer books, but I enjoyed it a lot.

I bought this Audible title when it was the Daily Deal, and I'm glad I did. I was apprehensive buying it as I've not read any Warhammer books before had know knowledge of the universe and themes across the series. There were a lot of terms and references used that I didn't know, but they didn't make the book any less enjoyable.

I enjoyed the story a lot more than I was expecting, and it certainly doesn't follow a typical or predictable plot line you'd expect with a small outnumbered army defending a city against a huge invading army.

The performance from Jonathan Keeble is superb- I would probably say one of the best I've heard so far. He is perfectly suited to the story that he reads and does a fantastic job of it.

I would recommend this book.
