Publisher Description

A Space Marine Conquests novel


The Word Bearers have come to despoil the Ecclesiarchy world of Almace – and it will take the Space Marines and the world's secretive leaders working together to prevent an apocalypse…


READ IT BECAUSE

Apocalypse is all about the biggest battles, and Josh Reynolds delivers that in this tale of three Space Marine Chapters waging war, with the fate of an entire world hanging in the balance.


THE STORY

Following the cataclysmic Great Rift, forces from the Imperial Fists, White Scars and Raven Guard mobilise to defend the cardinal world of Almace from an invasion by the twisted traitors of the Word Bearers…


Lieutenant Heyd Calder is a Primaris Marine whose mastery of warfare is matched only by his diplomatic prowess. Under the orders of Roboute Guilliman, he is deployed to Almace, a minor seat of the Ecclesiarchy, to protect the world at whatever cost. Yet even as diabolical forces leer from the system's edge, Calder discovers that the capital's Cardinal-Governor, a sharp, inscrutable figure of spiritual and material authority, is hiding something. When it becomes clear that conquest is not the enemy’s sole aim, Calder resolves to uncover the secret of Almace. As the system is set ablaze, clashes of faith, strategy and politics ensue in the capital, and it becomes clear that the forces of the Ecclesiarchy and the Adeptus Astartes must fight together if they are to have any hope of victory.

The Nerr ,

Action packed with a focus on Character Development

Book does a great job keeping the tension high while also carefully revealing the character of several different space marine chapters/warbands. A great read for people who want to see the political interplay of various Imperial factions, or for those who love Imperial Fists/White Scars/Raven Guard/Word Bearers.

Just great!

I read a lot of 40k books and this one is up there. A great addition to the space marine conquest line of novels.

World building 4/5
Great scene building and world exploration. Nearly perfect.

Characters 5/5
The dude [author] made imperial fists seem emotionally deep and word bearers mature and philosophically conflicted. I did not even hate the space church [Ecclesiarchy] as much as usual! Wow!
I found characters to root for on every side.

Plot 4/5
Touches on very interesting plot points for long term fans of the series. Not a good point to jump in on. To get the most out of it some Horus Heresy or basic 40k knowledge will be necessary. Still an intelligible and interesting story non the less.
I found most plot directions and events very believable, nothing really broke my immersion.

I’ll be sure to read more of this authors 40k novels , it did a great job of holding me over till the next dark imperium book comes out. Looking forward to the next in this series “fist of the imperium”. See you guys then!
