Publisher's Summary

Audiobook two of the Chronicles of Uriel Ventris

The Great Devourer is descending on the world of Tarsis Ultra, but to defeat the xenos horrors, Captain Uriel Ventris may have to embark upon a dangerous and unorthodox mission.

Listen to it because: it's a classic tale of the Space Marines against tyranids...with a twist. Conventional tactics fail, the Ultramarines way of war is insufficient...but if he uses other means to win the war, Uriel Ventris may lose far more.

The story: the Ultramarines are the epitome of a Space Marine Chapter. Warriors without peer, their name is a byword for discipline and honour, and their heroic deeds are legendary. The Great Devourer is descending on the world of Tarsis Ultra, a world under the protection of the Ultramarines. Captain Uriel Ventris and his warriors - allied with their barbaric cousins from the Mortifactors Chapter - rally the forces of the planet to defend against the tyranids. But to defeat the xenos horrors, Uriel may have to turn his back on the Ultramarines' teachings and embark upon a dangerous and unorthodox mission.

This edition also includes the prequel short story 'Leviathan', which sees Ventris and his Ultramarines board a space hulk an encounter the vanguard of the hive fleets: the feared genestealers.

Written by Graham McNeill. Running time 10 hours six minutes. Narrated by Bruce Mackinnon.

Truly boring

Not much here. Story is flat and predictable (Graham McNeill). Performance is phoned in (sometimes literally). Space marines that are 1000-10000 years old acting like children.

neat story

great to listen to Uriel's next chapter of his story. my biggest complaint is that many sections or lines of audio are clearly recorded in a different environments and create a kind of wonky listening experience.

Good story…average narration

An enjoyable story but I struggled with the choice of narrator for this book (and series). It really could have done with someone of the ilk of John Banks or Andrew Wincott, they have the tone and voices spot on for space marine novels.

The narrator sounds a bit too much like the late Rik Mayall, and once I had that in my head it continually broke my immersion in the story as I couldn’t shake the thought that Captain Flashheart was reading to me.

a good story spoiled but the wrong narrator

i gave a 5 but i do feel almost any other of the known warhammer narrators would have been far better for this series of books

One of the best spoiled by the wrong voice

One of my favourite and first 40k books, love reading this book, and like that there are plenty of "ordinary" characters.

The narrator was the wrong choice, has quite the annoying voice and made many of the characters sound petulant rather than serious or angry.

what happened with the naration

between squeaky sounding marines. choppy lines that go from clear and close to sudden echo and distance or barely audible mumbles.

Odd audio to a great second installment

Narration seems to jump from clear and close to further away, a bit strange sadly

Marmite

You either love these bolter porn books or hate them and after listening to three or four I am still undecided, I actually wanted more of the other characters such as snow or pavel and definitely I wanted more Mortifactors storyline but it just reverted to Uriel being Uriel albeit he did don his Deathwing armour, Bruce has got better as a narrator but can’t capture the listener with this materiel
