Publisher's Summary

Dante is Chapter Master of one of the noblest but most troubled Chapters of Space Marines in the Imperium: the Blood Angels. From the time of his birth in the rad-scarred wastes of Baal Secundus, he was destined for glory and strife.

From his apotheosis to Scout, to the hive cities of Armageddon and the alien menace of the Cryptus system, Dante has waged war against all the enemies of the Imperium. He has witnessed the divine, and struggled against the darkness within all sons of Sanguinius. Longer lived than any other Chapter Master, this is his chronicle, his great and storied legend.

Dante is a badass

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would only recommend this audio book to a friend who is a blood angels fan, i feel like they wouldn't appreciate it if they didn't know some of the ranks,titles and rituals of the blood angels.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dante?

During one scene the angels where in the presence of a chapter master they did not like,
Dante spoke to the chapter master as if he was one of his own, showcasing his nobility

Which scene was your favorite?

Early on in the book Dante spoke with Mephiston and the sanguinary guard stood around them in a circle, has to be the best scene in the book

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I didn't intend to listen to it all at once but as the story progressed it kept me listening for hours,

Any additional comments?

10/10 Book, Perfect for any fan of the blood angels or anyone wanting to learn more about our beloved chapter master, The Emperor Protects.

Dante!

Loved hearing a back story to one of 40k's great
characters, along with the narrative of his home world. Great fun.

Dante

I'm a simple man, I see Warhammer I buy. But this is a damned good book. I enjoyed listening to it and learning about the recruiting process that would be Space Marines are subjected to. The audio recording is high quality and the story is simple yet full of detail. This book acheived what every good Warhammer book has achieved, it made the Blood Angels and Dante in particular feel human. Which is a nice change of pace for Warhammer. I highly recommend this book to die hard fans and newcomers alike.

Excellent glimpse into the Origin Story of Dante.

I loved the way the book jumped from his childhood and threw the trials of the blood Angels then go to his first battles. I would recommend this book to any Fan of space marines or blood angels!5

Great book, Okay narration.

The book itself was very good and the plot/story was very gripping, the narrator was decent, but alot of the voices and accents sounded very similar. But even so, it was very easy to listen to. Read this before Devastation of Baal.

Hear the travails of the lord of Hosts.

Excellent scene setter for later books in the series and insight into the man who fostered some of the greatest heroes of the imperium.

Good but not breathtaking

This biography of Dante is interesting but the storyline jumps back and forth from his youth wanting to become a space marine to moments of him being that space marine rising through the ranks. It is interesting as a character build up but there is too much time spent on his youth and not enough on his accomplishments as an SM which leaves a feeling that his has just risen as other captains. It does not give the feeling that he is an amazing chapter master as his lore suggests in the various codexes we've seen over the years. A tad disappointing for me.
