Publisher's Summary

Dante is Chapter Master of one of the noblest but most troubled Chapters of Space Marines in the Imperium: the Blood Angels. From the time of his birth in the rad-scarred wastes of Baal Secundus, he was destined for glory and strife.

From his apotheosis to Scout, to the hive cities of Armageddon and the alien menace of the Cryptus system, Dante has waged war against all the enemies of the Imperium. He has witnessed the divine, and struggled against the darkness within all sons of Sanguinius. Longer lived than any other Chapter Master, this is his chronicle, his great and storied legend.

Great book

Captures the essence of 40k and this character very entertaining and interesting novel even if it is clearly trying to get you to buy the overpriced model.

Dante!

Loved hearing a back story to one of 40k's great
characters, along with the narrative of his home world. Great fun.

Dante is a badass

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would only recommend this audio book to a friend who is a blood angels fan, i feel like they wouldn't appreciate it if they didn't know some of the ranks,titles and rituals of the blood angels.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dante?

During one scene the angels where in the presence of a chapter master they did not like,
Dante spoke to the chapter master as if he was one of his own, showcasing his nobility

Which scene was your favorite?

Early on in the book Dante spoke with Mephiston and the sanguinary guard stood around them in a circle, has to be the best scene in the book

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I didn't intend to listen to it all at once but as the story progressed it kept me listening for hours,

Any additional comments?

10/10 Book, Perfect for any fan of the blood angels or anyone wanting to learn more about our beloved chapter master, The Emperor Protects.

Dante

I'm a simple man, I see Warhammer I buy. But this is a damned good book. I enjoyed listening to it and learning about the recruiting process that would be Space Marines are subjected to. The audio recording is high quality and the story is simple yet full of detail. This book acheived what every good Warhammer book has achieved, it made the Blood Angels and Dante in particular feel human. Which is a nice change of pace for Warhammer. I highly recommend this book to die hard fans and newcomers alike.

Excellent glimpse into the Origin Story of Dante.

I loved the way the book jumped from his childhood and threw the trials of the blood Angels then go to his first battles. I would recommend this book to any Fan of space marines or blood angels!5

A great story for even new fans

I loved the book it dragged me in even though I knew nothing about the lore. My favorite part of the story was the growth of the character, he went from a boy to a man in a relatable way even though its set in a alien world.

Wonderful

An insightful look into both the early days of Commander Dante and the recruitment practices of the IX Legion. Follow this book up with The Devastation of Baal and it’s easily the best pair of books in the Black Library. For The Emperor! For Sanguinius!

By the Blood<br />

this book gave me the insight into the blood angels and Lord commander Dante I was craving. I especially enjoyed the struggle that all of the sons of sanguinius share. the juxtaposition of both purist and most noble legion vs. the dark call of the blood and whisper of the black rage. excellent read.

Pringles

Once you start you can't stop! The storyline started really well as the boy became a man, and a man became a neophyte, the neophyte a full blooded Angel and a leader of Angels. And there was Dante !!! But once he receives his commission it all comes to an end quite abruptly as is they didn't know where to take him, so it's 5 minutes on his home planet and finished. I thought the story was great but not it in the last two chapters, actually the last two chapters wouldn't have made a decent final last chapter. Hence 4 stars, but 5 * for the first 19 chapters.

Gotta say Gareth Armstrong really brought the characters to life. The story itself is very immersive and gives real insight into the life of the blood angels. I highly recommend this audio book to newcomers and to people steeped in lore alike.

Good Insight

been running Blood Angels for 20yrs, good to have some lore around the oldest Astartes in the cosmos. Gives an indepth account of how an aspirant becomes a full feldged marine
