Publisher's Summary

An Orks novel

When Ufthak and his orks attack the forge world of Hephaesto, the last thing they want is to share the spoils with the notorious Kaptin Badrukk. But with armies to defeat and loot to seize, Ufthak's boyz might just need Badrukk's help - though that doesn't mean they can trust him....

Listen to it because: get into the heads of a band of orks in the first-ever novel from their point of view. Discover what it takes to be part of the Waaagh! and carve out your own little piece of glory amidst the mayhem in a novel that's brutal, kunnin' - and darkly hilarious.

The story: Ufthak Blackhawk and the green tide descend upon Hephaesto - an Adeptus Mechanicus forge world bristling with loot - only to find it already under siege by the notorious Freebooter Kaptin Badrukk. When his warboss, Da Biggest Big Mek, orders temporary co-operation, Ufthak seeks to make a name for himself by crushing some of the Imperium’s most advanced defenders and claiming the greatest prize. But with a sinister new war machine on the horizon, Badrukk’s plotting and a thoroughly annoying grot in his way, Ufthak is going to need the brutal kunnin’ of Mork himself just to survive.

A proper read for an Ork lover

This zany novel is outstanding in its execution and narration. If you have ever wanted to know what its like to be in an Ork mob look no further. The narration of the novel brings life to the race and each encounter brings surly characters and humour into a beautiful mesh that leaves the reader chuckling at the grim eccentric acts of the Orks.

Easy Listen

A solid listen from both the orks perspective and the Mechanicus perspective. I hope they do more books of this style in future.

Zoggin loved it!

The funniest 40K audiobook I’ve listened to. The author nailed the Orks, making them really enjoyable and fun yet menacing at the same time. My only complaint is when it takes you away from the Orks to give you the human perspective, which is really boring in comparison to the the Ork bits. The narrator deserves praise for their work with the Orks, sounded awesome. I can imagine doing that accent would be a strain!

A Good Ol' Krumpin'

Being able to hear a story almost entirely from an Orks perspective is quite the delight as one of the few comedic reliefs of 40k with their brutal but laugh out loud "accidents" between Da Boyz.

more like this please

I'm fairly new to the W40k lore and almost burnt out after getting bored to tears with the biggest series taking an unimaginably vast universe and choosing to fanboy about the same 3 dozen humans of unusual size. THIS book on the other hand pivots between three points of view each giving an intriguing look into their own under represented faction and had me eagerly anticipating every perspective switch so I could see more and more of the less explored underbellies of the W40k universe. The narration is excitable enough that it threw me off at first but I quickly caught the hang of it and it does wonders for setting the character of the three factions. My only complaint is that there's only one book of this compared to the dozens that have been spent yapping about space marines.

A GOOD STOMPIN TIME

Dis ere recordin and whats it, is a great soggin time. Dey got dem shiny humies, dey got dem spikey humies, dey got gargant on gargant thrashin. Apart from kickin a grot, you wont find a betta book about DA ORKS! WAAAAAAAAAAAARGHHHHHHH Pretty good audiobook. Decent story, interesting and relatable characters (yes even the orks), lots of funny moments, good action. If you want a self contained story about how the greenskins anal penetrate a cog boy world, then look no further.

meh

Story was ok. was expecting it to be told solely from the perspective of the orks, not multiple sides. The acting of the orks was sub par. To quiet, not enough dakka!

Orks done justice

Loved every last seconded of it. It has my favorite factions and clan so i may be a bit biased but I hope they produce more Ork POV books. Orks, Admech, Chaos its freaking bonkers.

May have been proofread by a gender pronoun activist

It might make sense for modern intergender persons to be referred as “they”, but what’s up with using “they” for half human cyborgs and monsters? I think whoever proofread the pronouns were overzealous.

A fun romp with some flaws

First of all, I enjoyed this book a lot. It was fun and funny with serious moments spaced out well. However, this book was advertised as focusing on the ork perspective. Upon listening, it was only about one third to one half, with the rest of the actual plot and meaty story happening to the mechanicus and lurking enemies there in. The ork perspective you get, feels like a Mary Sue with everything going too well. It is, however, a fun listen with a good reader. Has problems, but is good.

great story..shame about the narration

I really loved the story. been waiting for a good ork book to get ma teef into. but I'm a bit disappointed in the narration. it really feels like Tom Allenby didn't really do his research, gits, boyz n boss orks should have a much gruffer heavier voice. he should have kept the whining voices for dem krumpin grots and given the main characters proppa ard voices! like lock stock. luckily the writings good enough to take your attention away.

A zoggin' great time

Mike Brookes proves that you can have compelling point-of-view xenos characters even when they're as different as orks. This is one of the best 40k novels in a long time and I'll be recommending it to everyone. It's fun, exciting, and I genuinely didn't know what would happen next. You can probably already guess that the orks are very funny, but it also shows how formidable and terrifying they can be, as well as getting plenty of laughs out of me for the Adeptus Mechanicus characters. The two 'sides' (though both orks and AdMech clearly aren't united sides and there's as much fighting amongst themselves as there is against each other)) are both funny and potent in their own ways, it was a great choice of dichotomy. The narration is mostly good, and credit where it's due for getting properly into the roaring, but a lot of the ork voices don't sound right and are a bit annoying. Particularly Badrukk who sounds a bit like an elderly chap with a speech impediment rather than the top swashbuckling Kaptin. The main 'protagonist' ork sounds good though, and again, credit where it's due for getting stuck in and taking on the tough job of trying to give every ork a distinctive voice.

Book was written well and is very enjoyable but I feel the voice actor is not suited to the ork raw voices and just waters them down

Dis book was a Krumpin' good read!

I dunno if dis book was Brutal an Kunnin' or if it waz Kunnin' an Brutal ... but it was ded good. Der was a load of Boyz an dey was all killy an shooty and was krumping humies and den takin all da glitzy loot an scrap. It is high time someone gone and wrote a proppa book about Orkz and not all dat borin' humie crap. an dis is a right proppa book about Orks krumpin humies. Nuff said!
