Publisher's Summary

An Orks novel

When Ufthak and his orks attack the forge world of Hephaesto, the last thing they want is to share the spoils with the notorious Kaptin Badrukk. But with armies to defeat and loot to seize, Ufthak's boyz might just need Badrukk's help - though that doesn't mean they can trust him....

Listen to it because: get into the heads of a band of orks in the first-ever novel from their point of view. Discover what it takes to be part of the Waaagh! and carve out your own little piece of glory amidst the mayhem in a novel that's brutal, kunnin' - and darkly hilarious.

The story: Ufthak Blackhawk and the green tide descend upon Hephaesto - an Adeptus Mechanicus forge world bristling with loot - only to find it already under siege by the notorious Freebooter Kaptin Badrukk. When his warboss, Da Biggest Big Mek, orders temporary co-operation, Ufthak seeks to make a name for himself by crushing some of the Imperium’s most advanced defenders and claiming the greatest prize. But with a sinister new war machine on the horizon, Badrukk’s plotting and a thoroughly annoying grot in his way, Ufthak is going to need the brutal kunnin’ of Mork himself just to survive.

Green is best

Green is best, If you came looking for a Krumpin good time wit da lads this is the book for you, Don't worry about a heavy lore dump or overly long monologs. There is a good balance of talkin to Krumpin.

wog

finally a story told from the perspective of the Orks where the imperial forces are more petty than honorable. The narrator pronounces "waaaagh" with a hard G though.

good VA boring ad mech

VA did an amazing job, great job on his part. Story wise, Adeptus Mechanicus stuff is boring but the Ork stuff makes up for it

Zog Off

Zogging Brilliant. Loved every moment of it; and I don’t even play Orks. Really made me appreciate them more though, and a story mostly from their perspective was a very different experience to the usual warhammer books I put on while I paint! And the narrator nailed the voices just perfectly. Loved. It.

I was expecting an ork story

The book is advertised as being about orks and being told from their perspective. While this is true, it failed to mention every other chapter is from the perspective of the adeptus mechanicus who end up being rather bland and uninteresting. I’m confident I would’ve enjoyed it more by simply skipping every Ad Mech chapter.

An orky good time

This story is a blast. It's everything you want from an ork story. It's brutal, kunnin, and a load of fun. It's not just an ork book, though, because we get some really fun perspectives from mechanicus and another faction. Though if you're here for the orks, don't worry, they firmly center the story.

Story and writing aside, the performance was well done. Tom is a great narrator, and his voice work for characters is delightful.

Ad Mech Fanfiction

As an ork player I struggled to enjoy this book. what was advertised as a book about orks from the ork perspective actually turned out that they barely toe into the limelight. Uftak and his boyz serve as the backdrop to a story about introducing and launching Ad Mech protagonists and their story about internal politics amongst the mechanicus and how overly capable the "good guys" with dealing with orks and the heretical corruption. Honestly ork narrative is about 30% of this book. It is like the author wanted to pine about admech but GW Publishing was like "ok but write about orks first." What we get is a defiant piece of literature where orks are barely and shallowly represented and used as a vehicle to Kickstart a book series about a tech priest and her Sicarian sidekick as they effortlessly survive and defeat any enemy that comes their way. Jesus, even Uftak struggled in his personal melees against named admech characters. Seriously disappointed. The narration didn't help in the slightest as they made the orks sound like incompetent, bumbling stooges and the delivery felt like I was reading a teenager's fanfiction.

meh

Story was ok. was expecting it to be told solely from the perspective of the orks, not multiple sides. The acting of the orks was sub par. To quiet, not enough dakka!

A fun romp with some flaws

First of all, I enjoyed this book a lot. It was fun and funny with serious moments spaced out well. However, this book was advertised as focusing on the ork perspective. Upon listening, it was only about one third to one half, with the rest of the actual plot and meaty story happening to the mechanicus and lurking enemies there in. The ork perspective you get, feels like a Mary Sue with everything going too well.

It is, however, a fun listen with a good reader. Has problems, but is good.

OI YA GIT!

Diz 'ere iz a proppa story, wiv plenty uv 'onest Ork ak-shunn, givin da humies a solid krumpin'. Da parts about da humies ain't so bad ei'vur, even if dey iz a bit squishy, but da humie mek boyz is also made uv metal, so I guess dey ain't as squishy as uver humies, just not as tough as beakies. Any whatsit, youz is gonna luv da Orky bitz, even if da voice dat iz doin da talky bitz on your story box sounds a bit funny at first.
