Publisher's Summary

Audiobook two of the Dark Imperium trilogy. 

As the Plague Wars rage on, the Emperor's will manifests in Ultramar through miracles that confound the primarch Roboute Guilliman, even as he must rely on them when he faces his traitorous brother, Mortarion.

Listen to it because

The battle between faith and science lies at the heart of Warhammer 40,000. Guy Haley explores it here as never before, through the eyes of Roboute Guilliman - the ultimate believer in rationality and the Imperial Truth.

The story

In the void and upon the worlds of Greater Ultramar, the battle for the Imperium continues.

Intent on rebuilding his home realm and using it as a base to reconstruct the ravaged stellar empire of mankind, the returned primarch, Roboute Guilliman, proceeds with his war to drive Mortarion and his Death Guard Traitor Legion from the domain of the Ultramarines.

But when Guilliman brings his brother to battle upon the diseased plains of Parmenio, the intervention of a greater power in their fraternal struggle threatens to upend the Imperial Regent’s understanding of the galaxy, and his place within it.

Primarchs and ideologies clash in this thrilling second part of the Dark Imperium trilogy.

Written by Guy Haley. Narrated by John Banks.

A meandering slog

The first book is better. Chaos remains the Saturday morning cartoon villains, but that is just the way chaos is depicted in the 40k universe. I always wish the forces of chaos were depicted in a more subtle way; the first book had lovecraftian horror elements which I felt worked much better. Matthew is the most interesting character because he is a window into the extreme fanatic side of the Imperium. I love the idea of his self flagelator.
