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!

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!

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!

Okay, but not great

You can tell Abnett wanted to write a WW2 novel about the British pilots, but realized he wouldn’t get paid unless he slapped “Warhammer” flavor on it. While it’s an interesting aspect of the universe we don’t see often, most of the pilots are painfully dull and/or unlikeable. They are all so very, very dour and British... well, you can easily tell if you read it, almost no one actually ever displays any real emotion, they’re all to busy keeping a stiff upper lip. He introduces about a hundred different characters at the beginning of the book and the narrator can’t really be blamed for using the same low, gruff voice for nearly all of them. The book is more “boltporn” than I’m used to from Abnett (almost always an indication that the author doesn’t really have interesting characters or an interesting story to tell).

wish there was more

I was surprised by how good this standalone story was. I wish it was part of a series. Would have loved to read more about the Phantine XX.

What is the point?

I made it through a little over half and had no clue as to what was going on in this story. I did not hear a big picture background of the situation to be able to help visualize the scene or know why the war was going on. When I have a book on and can read a FAA document, the book is not worth my time. I just realized that I had been reading and not listening. Time to move on.

Aces High

Aces as in flying aces. The Imperium’s fly boys (and girls) take in the arch enemy in a high velocity air battle. Story was really good, not my favorite from Mr. Abnett but still enjoyable. I really like the parts where they focused in on the enemy pilots and how they thought and the ritualistic way they do things. How they twist and pervert their bodies to become the most proficient killers in their chosen field. I could of used some more of that in this story. I understand why there is not much of that in these stories… the Inquisition is always on the look out for heretical thoughts.

Epic air battles

This is the first 40k book/audiobook I've experienced. The narrator was SUPERB and the story was exciting and engaging. What an amazing piece of literature and acting.
