Publisher's Summary

An Ultramarines novel.

Cast adrift on the tides of the warp, Ultramarines Captain Sicarius and his warriors come across a world plagued by a terrible foe - but if they stay to defeat this enemy, what will be the cost?  

Listen to it because: 

Captain Sicarius returns in a new novel from the author of Fall of Damnos! For the first time, discover what befell Sicarius when he was lost in the warp and how he survived.... 

The story:

The primarch Roboute Guilliman of the Ultramarines has returned in the galaxy’s hour of need, and all muster to his Indomitus Crusade to hold back the darkness. Amongst these heroes is Cato Sicarius, Master of the Watch and vaunted captain of Second Company. Disaster befalls Sicarius and his brave warriors as their ship, the Emperor’s Will, is lost to the hellish warp, its entire crew believed slain. But Sicarius endures, though he and his men are fighting for their very survival against the denizens of the Great Rift - the daemons and renegades of Chaos. 

Cast adrift and war-weary, hope appears too distant to grasp until the storm breaks at last and a strange world beckons. As the captain and a band of his chosen warriors descend to the surface seeking aid, they find an isolated land seemingly from an ancient era, one plagued by a terrible enemy. Sicarius will not see this world suffer and pledges his warriors to the world’s cause, determined to save it, whatever the cost.... 

But what is the dark secret harboured here, and what will it mean for the Ultramarines if they uncover it? Written by Nick Kyme.

Shallow

Having just read Servants of the Throne, Eisenhorn, and Dark Imperium I was looking forward to getting some great insights into the Ultramarines post primarch return. Unfortunately this book mainly centers around actions scenes, gore, and people making bad decisions with no explanation behind it.
If you like action and gore while never exploring plot or the setting deeply; this book could be for you. If you are looking for atmosphere beyond descriptions of blood and bodies, look elsewhere.

Amazing story and plot with confusing action

This book did a fantastic job of showing the advancements of the primaries Marines compared to regular Astardes by displaying their strength senses and healing capabilities directly against regular space Marines. It also builds a fantastic plot of unpowered Astardes on a midevil planet.

Narrator is great, book is not

So join a miscellaneous crew you don't and won't care about on a ship that is sailing for a place so awful they forgot to mention it, so they can do an important thing that you will never know, all while Cato Sicarius strokes his beard. But don't worry friends Cato and crew spend five years lost doing awesome things in the warp...which this book won't tell us either. Well fast forward to where hunger strikes, bafflingly bad decisions, vigorous beard stroking, and seminaked old men doing their best ju-on impressions are all the rage. Or don't, save that credit and get a good book like Eisenhorn.
