Climax fell flat - but a great ride

Compelling story, greatly enjoyed it - a really great ride but weak ending in my opinion.

Lots of character building, not disappointed in the titan battles either.

There were a few different story arcs going on, and although they did come together - the finale left me wanting in regards to titan battles.

probably the worst DA books I've read so far

I like to listen to warhammer books and this is probably the worst one that I have listened to so far, it just feels like there was too much trying to be coveted too quickly and the descriptions of each faction were so vague it was hard to tell what was going on

Finally here!

Best Titan novel in the Black Library.

Read if you:

Like Dan Abnett with Toby narrating

Like Titans, the heresy hasn’t done them justice.

Like the Ad mech

Like interwoven plots

it was a struggle

To surmise ahead of time, give it a listen.

admittedly, I loved this story. It painted a great picture of how the mechanicus operates and all the niche details through their eyes (literally), that no one else gets to see. that said, it was a slow start.

I'm fine with it, as I love the world building aspect of all things, but it was a good hour or two between the beginning conflicts, before we reached another one.

Kudos to Toby Longworth for making the journey enjoyable all throughout with his Voice work.

Focused alot on the mechanicus, and painted a great picture of their lives and the world through their eyes, but for a book named: "Titanicus", there was a great deal of focus mainly on the little buggers.

at the end of the day, this is just me griping over a wonderfully informative book that makes the world a little more interesting.

Don't take it to heart, because I genuinely think you should give this book a listen.

Best 40K writing I've found yet.

Good voice acting by Toby Longworth. Great story - though aspects of the ending left me wanting. And an absolutely captivating imagining of a 40K Forge World conflict.

Still haven't found anyone else who does 40K like Dan Abnett.

Strong start, but weak finish

Abnett built an impressive world but couldn't tie it all together at the end. Titan combat is fun and well written, but you'll have to sludge through a boatload of misogyny and fascist imperial propaganda. The story looks like it's going to say something profound about that latter, but takes it all back at the last minute.

The narration was very strong.

Engines! But too many distractions

To avoid spoilers, this story has a few too mamy branches that are unrelated to the overall story. One in particular that, if removed, would make me revise my review to a 5/5 stars.

Titanium is a spectacular novel.

Amazing & wonderful.

Dan Abnett net did an amazing job with this book. he makes the mechanicus seem relatable and humanizes them in a way that I did not expect, and no one has ever done engine war as a beautifully or perfectly as was done in this book. Thank you Dan Abnett. Praise be to the Omnissiah.

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

choppy

I was hoping this was going to be a good story however it is to choppy to many characters impossible to follow for a story called titanicus it doesn't focus on the war machines enough it focuses on characters that you don't care about... because the story is called titanicus honestly I've seen less dramatisation of unimportant things in the tv drama days of our lives. I'll refer you to that chick's husband that ran away from the guard for no reason and got killed all for an extra chapter it was pointless this novel is not worth the money unfortunately I wish it was it just isn't.
