Publisher's Summary

The Battle Titans of the Adeptus Titanicus are towering war engines, striding to war as holy effigies of the Omnissiah. Greatest of all are the mighty Warlord Titans, their weapons bringing righteous death to alien and heretic alike. Still reeling from a near disastrous battle against tyranids, the Pallidus Morr demi-legio is assigned to a new warzone, a nearby forge world which has fallen under the sway of Chaos.

Here their battered war-machines must fight alongside another Titan Legion, the Imperial Hunters. As city after city falls before the relentless tread of Chaos war machines, the Imperium's only chance of victory lies in the two legios putting aside their differences and fighting as one.

Enjoyable

I really enjoyed the performance and found the story very solid. Would like it to have gone on a bit further in detailing some parts but very good overall.

Once it got going...

While I had a hard time getting into it at the start, once I did get into the story, I was completely and utterly sucked in. Great story!

Good Titan Action

While I wouldn't qualify this as an excellent book it was still well written and had good action sequences of Titans blowing each other apart. Which is what I was looking for. So I was well satisfied.

Mediocre but passable

Character development doesn’t start until about an hour and a half in. I bought this book mostly for some titan inspiration, but found the titan characters fairly flat and boring. Everybody in this book is a grimdark stereotype. The preacher is bombastic and quick to anger. The titan princeps are haughty and quick to anger. Just about everyone in this book is quick to anger over the slightest insult. If you’re hoping for something along the quality of Mechanicum, I think you’ll be sorely disappointed.

I'll read the sequel however...

It's pretty straight forward from start to finish. Few twists along the way but the end was predictable enough.

Solid Warhammer novel

Well narrated, solid Warhammer novel, particularly if you're a fan of Titan warfare. it's no Storm of Iron, but still a solid offering.

4+ mediocre stories instead of one good one

The author seems afraid to develop any of his characters or actually do anything with them. you've got a priest who's as self assured at the beginning as he is at the end, a tank commander with the attitude of eeyore and the number of lines up match. Then you've got 3 different governors who do literally nothing plot wise except fill up a couple pages and give you views of the war that add literally nothing to the story. and of course you have the titan crews who never change or grow at all.

Sure the author writes like they learned something, but literally nothing changes about their characters at all.

Plot? BOOM BAM PAKEW PAKEW MICHAEL BAY EXPLOSIONS! It would be extremely forgettable if it weren't for set pieces. Entire cities literally exploded like 4 times. They're nice visuals, but add 0 to the story beyond plot devices.

The reader was great, worked well with what he waa given, but you could tell he was struggling to remember all the forgettable one-off characters that for some reason were the main focus.


The book was clearly pushed out to sell adaptus titanicus box sets. Skip this and you'll miss out on nothing.

Engaging

So, for how much of a fan of Warhammer 40k I am, I can also admit the premise is dumb. Having said that, I have found this book to be more engaging than a bunch of others in the same universe. Having the perspective of the priest on the ground is what sealed the deal for me. I've read Titanicus, so the demi-legio offered not much new, but the perspective of the priest and his faith made this story very engaging.

Worthy of Titanicus

We have long awaited more novels in the spirit of Titanicus. This one surely does not disappoint.

ONE OF THE FEW

One of the few books written in whole about Titans and yes a few Tanks, and it's a cracking book . Very well read and very well written, worth every penny or that valuable credit if your a member. I'm not going to tell you the plot in any way as that would spoil it. Just to say it's full of surprises, twists, turns, battles galore ,and much much more. So yes it's well worth the listen and I totally recommend and then some.
This. Is one brill book not to be missed, so add it to your 40K collection I did and havnt regretted in the slightest..
Regards Kez Purser. 😉

gripping and enjoyable

if you are fan of Titan's then this is the story for you. Also if you play Adeptus Titanicus it will give you idea of the mind set of a legion and the way to fight a game.

Was hoping for more...

Good story let down by mediocre dialogue performed with poor vocal interpretations! The narration was good, but the characterisations were poor - had this from John Banks before with his same bank of rasping shouts - I will learn this time!

Relentless and majestic.

This is basically titans, banelords, god-machines and tanks pummelling the crap out of one another. Nothing wrong with that! Highly recommended.
