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.

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.

Pretty zoggin good!

Brutal kunnin is a loud story full of subtleties, most of which are highly comedic. It’s the first 40k book written with a green skin as one of the protagonists, and Mike Brooks did a brilliant job of balancing the zany with tact. At times downright hilarious, this book was a great listen worth anyone’s time if they enjoy the universe when it’s being a bit silly and action packed. But Let’s be clear here, this is not a thought piece. This is an action packed ride that puts it more in the column of say a good marvel movie than the likes of citizen Kane. The narrator does a great job, but as someone who’s played the dawn of war games it took some adjusting to get used to his portrayal of orks. I can’t imagine it was an easy script to pull off, but Tom Allenby did a stellar job of bringing a completely new type of 40k story to life. I really hope that we get a sequel, sometimes it’s good to remember that outside of the fathers and sons space opera of the Horus heresy there’s still room in the grim dark future of the 41st millennium to give us a fresh world view.

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!

May have been proofread by a gender pronoun activist

It might make sense for modern intergender persons to be referred as “they”, but what’s up with using “they” for half human cyborgs and monsters? I think whoever proofread the pronouns were overzealous.

Orks done justice

Loved every last seconded of it. It has my favorite factions and clan so i may be a bit biased but I hope they produce more Ork POV books. Orks, Admech, Chaos its freaking bonkers.

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.
