Publisher's Summary

An Astra Militarum novel 

Sent to the capital world of Potence, Sergeant Minka Lesk and the Cadian 101st discover that though Cadia may have fallen, their duty continues.  

Listen to it because:

It's the follow-up to Cadia Stands and continues the journey of Minka Lesk and her warriors as they seek revenge against the Imperium's enemies for the loss of their world.  

The story:

For 10,000 years, Cadia stood as a bastion against the daemonic tide spewing forth from the Eye of Terror. But now the Fortress World lies in ruins, its armies decimated in the wake of Abaddon the Despoiler and his Thirteenth Black Crusade.

Those who survived, though haunted by the loss of their beloved homeworld, remain bloodied and unbarred, fighting ruthlessly in the Emperor’s name. Amongst them is the indomitable Sergeant Minka Lesk. Sent to the capital world of Potence, Lesk and the Cadian 101st company soon discover that a rot runs through the very heart of the seemingly peaceful world. 

Lesk knows she must excise this taint of Chaos, for it is not only her life and those of her company at stake but also the honour of Cadia itself.   

Written by Justin D Hill. Narrated by Colleen Prendergast.

Doesn't feel like it's the gritty 40k book.

Ok book but wrong narrator. Shes talented but makes the character seem bland. Its not gritty or grim or sounding like a military book about Cadians. I dont know if its the writer but it sounds like the best of the imperial guard are average troopers who don't really care they serve the imperial guard. The narrator needed to put more soul into the characters rather then just plain tone for the character's individual lines and actions.

Wrong tone for this book

Just the wrong narrator for a warhammer 40k story. Not saying she isn't talented but I found the voices given to characters to childish and she got the tone of the book wrong. Dark and gritty is warhammer 40k universe and this to me was not achieved

CADIA ... meanders blandly and poorly written

seriously. i like the idea of a guard focused book, especially one dealing with the cadians after The Fall, but the is just poorly done. i thought gone were the days of jerking off cadians as the be all end all guard unit, but even here the tradition continues.

the writing is boring. the characters are flat and banal, from troops, to officers, to commissars, to heretics. they re also stupid.

important military outpost in middle of nowhere, group of people claiming to be fratris miltarium show up lead by guy with his eyes sewn open, pouring blood, soaked in blood, nd looking like a undersized goliath (which still puts him as oversized and muscled for a human) claims they are there to releive the guard, all veterans. and they just buy it. just blindly accept it and only want to make fast check with hq, only to be slaughtered without a fight by guys who only a week before were dying of starvation.

this book is trash. i got a couple hours left to unlock a 20 dollar credit, and tempt to return it still and get something new because its just Crap.

Just alot of bitterness about nothing

I dont know who this was written for. The book seems to really have some kind of issue with men. I honestly couldnt finish it. For some reason all the women just have problems with all the men, and as far as I can tell all the men are just portrayed as cruel, stupid, annoying, or evil for the sake of giving the women someone to complain about. In terms of 40K books, stay away. This one is the worst I've ever heard.

Voice acting was the only good thing

Honestly to take a master piece like Cadia Stands and follow it up with this severely disappointed me. This story follows a normal guardsmen that has nothing special about her. She's so unspecial I had to stop the book and listen to a Dan Abnett book just to have the will power to make it through. If you like Feminism and strong women you'll love this book. if you like a compelling story free of gender politics you'll hate it.

A little curve

The narrator is new. But she’s alright. It sometimes feels off. Not the aggression we expect from commanders and generals. But still good.

not a bad novel

I enjoyed the action and also the description of moral citizens and how they fall to heresy.

my biggest negative... If i have to hear lemun russ tank pronounced lemon russ one more time il be begging for the emperors peace. the narrator did a good job but clearly was unaware of some parts of the lingo. stassssis field was another one..

A solid edition to GW lore.

The story is pretty perfect for someone new to 40K or for those who wish to know what happened to those who held the line. The plot is nothing earth shattering (excuse the gag) and it feels a bit muddled at the end, but the characters are interesting and developed. Each one suffering from the events of the past in their own manner and learning to move on and it's here were the series could really distinguish itself.
I look for to the next installment.

Brilliant

An exciting continuation from Cadia Stands. Not as strong as the first book and I personally preferred the original narrator. But Colleen Prendergast still makes an EXCELLENT performance so don’t let that put you off.

I really hope there’s going to be another book, and I hope whoever gets to narrate it keeps up the Geordie/Mackem accent for the Cadians. It just added a nice touch to the performance.

loved it

The narrator is simply amazing. It's so refreshing hearing a mix of British accent. The story really shows the guardsmen are really people
