As ork ships lay waste to world after world, heading inexorably towards Terra, Imperial citizens despair. The High Lords become desperate to prove that victory is possible, no matter the cost. A massive navy fleet is assembled - their mission to make a definitive strike against the orks at Port Sanctus, an area of enemy-held space. But when the Imperial armada arrives, they find themselves outclassed and outmanoeuvred. Can human courage and faith possibly prevail against such terrible odds?

A most enjoyable listen, the imperial navy plotline is self contained, and it continues the drakkan Vangorich and imperial fists stories started in book 1. sadly we don't hear from the navy characters again in the next few books.

seriously, any scene Yoncy was in I hoped she'd never speak. super squeaky voice was too accurately annoying.

but so many great voices and accents, differing between the tanith, verghast and belladon characters was great.

story and performance top notch.
