Publisher's Summary

The Imperium has been brought to the edge of extinction by an ork invasion of unprecedented scale and depth. Piecemeal strikes against the invaders prove ineffective - for every ork fleet destroyed, five more appear.

The only solution is to find and kill the orks' warlord - the Great Beast. Surely if its leader is killed, the greenskins' empire will fall apart in agony of infighting and confusion. Lord Commander Koorland assembles a mighty army, but when they arrive on the orks home world, the forces of the Imperium discover they have disastrously underestimated the might and ingenuity of their enemy.

Exciting tale

Giving more of the grim darkness of the 40k universe. This story delivers in spades with a great narration.

... there is only war

Very little of the political intrigue etc from earlier books. Instead almost the entire book revolves around one battle.

Wacky but fun.

Ok if youre this far into the series a review isn't going to change your mind.

but the story in this one goes into B level scifi- and I mean that in the best way. It's wacky, silly, over the top, and keeps rolling. Everyone had plot armor, does overly heroic stuff, and they even do some silly renditions of Shakespeare. This book isn't art, but you're going to have fun with it.

The performance is a bit lacking. the reader had trouble keeping the voices consistent across the whole book... but it's somewhat understandable when there's some huge conversations going on. But there are some other times when the inflection doesn't match what is being said. It's not constant but happens enough to be noticeable.

A real struggle to get through

Hard to follow, not very interesting, repetitive drama, lack of Orks in a supposed Orks book!

Highs and Lows

Once again great narrative with plenty of twists along the way, combined with carnage, duty and the ultimate sacrifice.
