Best Titan Book IMO

Absolutely amazing book, well worth the read. This brought back my love for the titan legions after reading Warlord by David Annandale (honestly one of the worst stories I have read ever). This book does a fantastic job of balancing it's low moments with plenty of badass action from the heroes throughout the story. Every faction present gets multiple badass moments throughout the book from every side. This was truly some of the best 40k writing I've read and fantastic large scale science fiction. Small spoiler from this point on.


WTF did Callie Samstag do to you Dan Abnett?! Put her through all that and then kill her husband at the very end! Probably the only disappointing part as I was hoping we'd get to see them reunite at the end. Still far and away better than Warlord though.

Lots of underdeveloped subplots.

Lots of subplots and not so developed characters. Some subplots and characters I liked and wish they were fleshed out some more. A bit anticlimactic in the end. Nice to see some inner workings of the Mechanicus and how Titans work, kinda.
If you are really into Mechanicus, then you will like it more.

The big twist was a bit contrived:
**spoiler: somebody found an old heretical book that proves the God Emperor and the Omnissiah are not the same and we are just supposed the take their word for it!!!

great story, wish there was more

A lot of folks are complaining about how there is an all seeing woman and how sexism seems to be a thing in this novel. The Terran culture is clearly meant to be Muslim on this world and even seems to take some minor influences from the Fremen. this all seeing woman reminds me of that too. I don't find these aspects bad in this story and it seems to be fitting for the cultures they're trying to portray in this grimdark future.

story is good, performance is great. just wish that there was more audiobooks about the Deathwatch on audible

Big Titans make brain go brrrr

I've always loved the higher level stories in 40k. The stories about the people who make the decisions and who stand above the muck and the mud. Who could stand above it all better than a titan?

This book is a neat insight into the politics and religion of the Mechanicus while also personalizing the story through the eyes of those who have to live with the reality of towering god engines.

I cant recommend this book enough for people who are curious to see the inside of a titan at war (both tactically and politically).

typical abnett genius

no one tells a story like Dan Abnett. especially a 40k story. he has a true grasp of the setting. what I loved about this book is it wasn't just a book about walking robots shooting at each other. there's way more to it. any Abnett story with Toby Longworth narrating is going to be great

Outstanding

An absolute must listen tale of mechanicus shenanigans in the Sabbat worlds, excellent narration not that the story needed lifting but it certainly made it more enjoyable

This is Mortis as it should have been written

Title says it all really.

Mortis was a huge let down in relation to Engine war. This wasn’t. Dan smashed it again.

Toby Longworth is Dan’s voice simple as that. Phenomenal as always.

The best Black Library novel ever written...

... and not a single Space Marine in sight! Honestly one of the best science fiction novels of the last couple of decades. It transcends it's warhammer setting and genre. I've read the novel half a dozen times but this new audio version just takes it to another level.

One of the highlights in all of Black Library

A must-listen for any titan lover out there, capturing all aspects of engine war, while also telling a compelling story. I really liked all characters and their characterizations.

an uphill listen with beautiful scenery

first, ill admit this, the story is very inconsistent. but once you start picturing it like a movie, the story shifting from one scene to another becomes quite titillating.
it leaves you wondering what will happen next, a real page turner in audio form with excellent narration to boot. the malleability of mr longworths voice is exquisite and satisfying to listen to. with a bit of audio editing, this book would be on an entirely new level.
the story is *chef's kiss* i found myself surprised at how long each chapter was as it gripped tight my attention and intrigue to the point where each part felt like a mere few minutes.

and the titans. despite the title painting it as a book about the colossal machines exclusively, it also does an excellent job at portraying the intricate in-world culture surrounding titans. it tells you things like how the common citizens feel about titans, what kind of impact they have on daily functions, even the soldiers and administratum's perspectives on titans. its more than just big machines fighting, it pulls back the curtain to display a very awesome facet of the mechanicum, like a front row seat viewing of the mechanicum administration, the lives of common hive dwellers, the struggles of both the trained imperial soldiers and the undisciplined civilian militia reserve, and more importantly the functions of titan command interiors.

im still very new to the warhammer franchise but now after listening to this, i want a titan of my own!!

all in all, its a great read(listen). though it might pay to keep a notebook around to jot down the names of its characters to prevent yourself from getting lost.

my favorite quote from the book:
"NEKROMANT INVIDIOSA!!"
- chaos titan Necromant invidiosa
