In the Pandorax System, on the death world of Pythos, an ancient secret that has laid buried for millennia has been unearthed… Ignorant of this terror, troopers of the Catachan 183rd, stranded on Pythos and under the command of Colonel ‘Death’ Strike, find themselves under attack by the forces of Chaos. Daemons in their thousands flock the sky, and none other than Warmaster Abaddon leads the attack. With the Death Guard and Black Legion arrayed against them, the Catachans appear to be doomed, until salvation arrives in the form of the entire Dark Angels Chapter, led by Master Azrael and a host of heroes. But what is the so-called ‘Damnation Cache’? What secrets does it harbour and why has it also attracted the attention of the daemon-hunting Grey Knights?
Read it because
As well as being one of the most brutal conflicts of the Warhammer 40,000 settings, Pandorax also features some of the 41st Millennium's most recognisable heroes and villains, such as Azrael of the Dark Angels, Grand Master Draigo of the Grey Knights, Colonel Iron Hand Straken of Catachans and even Warmaster Abaddon of the Black Legion. Horus Heresy fans will also find links to the novel The Damnation of Pythos set a full 10,000 years earlier.
Finally — there's a loveable Jokaero space-ape that drives a tank. That's got to be worth a read?
Great story, lots of action...
...that ending though :O definitely one that sticks with you!
This book is fantastic!!!
I can’t recommend this book enough…. Really enjoyed it.
It has everything: Inquisitors, Imperial Guard, Space Battles, Demons, Chaos Marines, Grey Knights, Dark Angels… Air battles…it just goes on and on.
Start- middle and End are all great it just gets better and better.
I think this is my all-time favourite W40k books and I’ve read them all.
My wife, a non-scifi reader is already 50% through it on her first day, so it’s that good.
Well done C Z Dunn!!!
