Publisher Description

Under almost constant besiegement by the hosts pouring from the Eye of Terror, Cadia acts as a bulwark against tyranny and death. Its fortresses and armies have held back the hordes of Chaos for centuries, but that grim defiance is about to reach its end. As Abaddon's Thirteenth Black Crusade batters Cadia's defences, and armies of the Imperium flock to reinforce this crucial world, a terrible ritual long n the making comes to fruition and the delicate balance of this brutal war shifts… From the darkness, a hero rises to lead the beleaguered defenders, Lord Castellan Ursarkar Creed, but even with the armoured might of the Astra Militarum and the strength of the Adeptus Astartes, will it be enough to avert disaster and prevent the fall of Cadia? While Creed lives, there is hope. While there is breath in the body of a single defender, Cadia stands… but for how much longer?

Chaotic, but immersive

I'm a huge J.Hill fan, and the warhammer universe has been one that I have followed for over 10 years. In that span of time, there have been hundreds of books published by various authors, of which I am the proud owner of over 50 of them. With the transition to this age where Cadia has been shattered, comes a whole new line of novels that focuses on a dawning of a new age. This novel provides detail into the battle for cadia through multiple characters, providing a large scale approach and perspective on how chaotic this new age.

With that said, the strength of this novel is also its ultimate weakness. An overabundance of characters leaves them half built, and in many cases leaves the audience frustrated at the disjointed nature of the plot. One minute you're stepping into a war fighting back for Cadia, the next you're in space running away. VERY little is provided on who you are led to believe as the main character - Lord Castellan Creed. This novel felt like multiple short stories under the same title, which if that is the purpose of the author - does a great job.
