Publisher's Summary

A Sabbat Worlds novel.

The war on Enothis is almost lost. Chaos forces harry the defenders on land and in the skies. Can the ace pilots of the Phantine XX turn the tide and bring the Imperium victory?  

Listen to it because:

It takes the famous Sabbat Worlds Crusade to the skies, with fast-paced aeronautical action, memorable characters and compelling emotional arcs from Dan 'Master of War' Abnett.  

The story:

High-speed air combat in the war-torn Sabbat Worlds! 

When the elite fighter pilots of the Phantine XX arrive on the beleaguered world of Enothis, they know it is a desperate hour. The forces of Chaos are closing in, and their final push could well wipe out all human life on the planet. Thousands of refugees flee the dark armies, and the infamous Chaos fighter pilot Khrel Kas Obarkon is always hunting the skies for more prey.... 

And so it falls to the brave men and women of the Phantine fighter corps. Can they hold off the Chaos advance until reinforcements arrive? In the high-speed, white-knuckle terror of aerial combat, can they defeat an enemy possessed by daemons?  

Written by Dan Abnett. Running time 10 hours and 17 minutes. Narrated by Toby Longworth.

battle of Britain Warhammer 40k style.

You will find no strange mythos, angsty and godlike primarchs and no space Marines here. This is no space opera and you will certainly not find a glistening view of the future here. Instead you will find pilot's and their machines, the absurdity of war, and the grim dark determination of an Imperial world standing against all odds. As a pilot and a reservist, I cannot recommend this book enough. it reads like a far more desperate and far more relatable version of the Battle of Britain. It is well read, well narrated and a good book all around. This is a story that Warhammer 40k was meant to tell. Good luck, the emperor protects and check your six for bats!

One of my all-time favorite 40k books

There is no other 40k book like this one. Air combat is a subject not many BL authors are willing to focus on, so it's truly unique that the entire book focuses on Imperial fighter pilots. it's one heck of a ride!

This is going to cost me some money

This book was amazing. Now I have to go buy $300 of forgeworld models. Seriously though, the characters are great and believable and the dogfight scenes get your heart racing. this should be his next series, I'd buy them all!

Dan Abnett continues to surprise!

A totally different look on a 40k war. Superbly written, we meet some old friends from Gaunt's Ghosts, that get drawn into a WW2 style air combat of epic proportions.

Pretty good too many characters somewhat

Who is a pretty good route especially at the end but it was for me kind of hard to follow along in the beginning he got a little bit easier in the end though

A great read for Warhammer and Aviation fans

I’ve really struggled to find any major Warhammer books with a strong focus on aviation. The story was excellent and engaging, the narrator did a wonderful job differentiating voices, and the overall setting was incredibly engaging. I highly recommend.

Battle of London in 40k

it's feels like a liveing breath war. Just one small complaint it's a little hard to follow the characters sometimes each one has a call sign, name(first and last sometimes), and Squadron number. and they only go by one of those at a time.

Air War in the 41st Millennium.

A great, character-driven story that depicts the brutality of air warfare in the 40K universe. Strong characters, vivid depiction of both battle and behind the scenes interaction and admirable voice acting combine to make this a very enjoyable listen.

Toby Longworth stellar as usual

Voice acting fabulous
Overall an incredibly exiting insight to 40k aerial combat
Story is great, sometimes struggled with working out which viewpoint was which between the main arcs - a usual Abnett issue for audiobooks but it was still really good and I highly recommend

Air war in the (19) 40K

Brilliant adaptation of (mild spoiler) the RAF in May to September 1940 to the 40K universe. Fab portrayal and voicing by Toby Longworth, maybe the best of his I've heard with a very large number of characters to portray. For the story think of the RAF forward force sent to France, facing off against a numerically superior force, operating from temporary bases, the air rearguard over the retreating land army as it falls back to the coast in May and June 1940 then skip ahead to the desperate days leading up to a climax of Sept 15th. Just awesome.

decent alternative to sleeping pills

Love everything I've read/heard from Dan Abnett, but this would be the exception. Just wasn't interested in the characters or whatever was going on. Lost interest again and again, zoned out and had to backtrack. The imperials were dead boring. He could've thrown in some interesting xenos perspective, flying/fighting against orks, eldar or something new and different, but he went with chaos blood pact instead. The dullest chaos-worshippers in the arsenal. Would have made a good sleeping aid if the performance had matched the story. Toby reads it with a lot of tension. Like he cares for whatever's going on. Makes it hard to relaxe while listening to this.

Great addition to the Sabbat Worlds Saga

Abnett does it again. Engaging characters and great plot. You really feel each death. Some predictable character progression but moves along at a solid pace.

One of Dan Abnett's best

And yes, that totally includes Eisenhorn.

DA's skills lie in well-developed stories with a small cast of characters and he really puts it to show here.
Everyone with their own life and how they weave into the story and tie loose ends.
Toby Longworth, what a man, what a voice. Each character feels different and layered with even elements of backstory put into the accents and pentameter in which he plays them.
outstanding.

Amazing.

Could be Dan's best one yet! Toby really manages to bring it to life and gets the tension going. My blood was racing through out and I even punched my fist into the air a few times when the unit did well.
