Description

As ork ships lay waste to world after world, heading inexorably towards Terra, Imperial citizens despair. The High Lords become desperate to prove that victory is possible, no matter the cost.

A massive navy fleet is assembled - their mission to make a definitive strike against the orks at Port Sanctus, an area of enemy-held space. But when the Imperial armada arrives, they find themselves outclassed and outmanoeuvred. Can human courage and faith possibly prevail against such terrible odds?

Boring

More political intrigue then space marine. The story seems to drag on and on. My curious nature wants me to get to the end but I don't know if I can do it. Particularly because there are so many and they are so short. Why use a credit on a 7 hour book when I can use that same credit on a 30 hour book.
Audible should have bundled these In sets of 3 or 4 books at the very least.

Kick off point for the series.

As the third book in the series I feel this is where things finally get good. Books one and two are really more setting the stage and this book starts to pay off. Unfortunately this isn't a place where the reader can jump in at as books 1 & 2 are required reading.

The narrator is fine, if a little too fast (but a slight tweak to playback speed fixed it) and really sells the ships officers.

Slowly improving

Slow in the beginning, with a few moments of excitement, with interesting characters but overall boring enough to make me seriously reconsider buying more of this series. That is the best explanation for the first three books. It’s more for the fans of political intrigues. I was so bored with the first two books, I had to make myself finish the third novel. I even considered asking for a refund.
Towards the end of this third novel, it’s finally getting better, with the arrogant High Lords of Terra getting a much needed reality check.
Excellent performance from the narrator and the characters are three dimensional and believable but the story is extremely slowed down by the political storyline but this book is an improvement over the first two.
