Publisher's Summary

An Astra Militarum Audiobook

Cadia. This proud world stood defiant for centuries – a bulwark against the forces of Chaos residing in the Eye of Terror. All of this would change when it was targeted for destruction by Abaddon the Despoiler as part of his Thirteenth Black Crusade.

LISTEN TO IT BECAUSE

The Fall of Cadia is a touchstone moment of the Warhammer 40,000 timeline. This incredible battle led to the opening of the Great Rift and ushered in a grim new era in which even greater threats assailed the Imperium.

THE STORY

Cadia licks its wounds in the wake of the Thirteenth Black Crusade. The heretic forces retreat on all fronts. The day is won. But Lord Castellan Creed cannot rest easy. Something tells him the assault was a mere prelude to something greater, something more final. He is right. Out of the Eye of Terror comes Abaddon the Despoiler, at the head of a warhost unmatched in scale since the dread days of the Horus Heresy.

In the face of the looming apocalypse, Creed must weld the champions of Cadia into a bulwark capable of withstanding Abaddon’s fury. And in orbit, the Despoiler himself finds his own alliance teetering on a knife edge…

This is a tale told at epic scale, from the tables of high command to the slaughter of the pylon fields, and with a huge cast of characters from self-styled demigods to the rank-and-file foot soldiers of the Imperium.

This is the story of Abaddon’s greatest conquest. This is Cadia’s last stand.

Written by Robert Rath. Narrated by Mark Elstob. Running time 19 hrs and 44 mins approx.

Great story, horrible VA for every character.

A nice, long, very solid story that is almost entirely RUINED by horrendous voice acting for virtually every character. Chapters that should be great are a slog to get through. Some characters are almost impossible to understand. Narrator's... well, narration voice is fine, but his portrayal of characters is unfortunately terrible.

Good Retelling, Terrible VA performance

VA makes everyone sound like whining babies the whole time. While I enjoy the story it makes it hard to enjoy when everyone sounds like they are more at home in a wallace and gromit movie.

Great read!

Was an awesome book but the voice actor sometimes failed to portray the correct emotions and took away from the listening

Tedious

Some nice ideas but mostly just filler for the inevitable outcome. No characters grabbed me. Just felt like a long, tedious grind through mostly uninteresting content.

The narration?!

Great story, think it will make a good read, which is how I'll finish it one day.
General story narration is good, but the choices for characters are the worst I have heard for Any 40k audiobook, who signed off on...this.
