Glorious yet brief.

Great for anyone who loves the Templars or has ever been curious of dreadnoughts. A great lore hound short.

Short but impactful! Don’t miss out on this one.

Don’t make the mistake of overlooking this story due to its length. It is very well written and paced! It is amazing how attached you can become to a character in a mere 40 mins. While I would have liked more time with this character, honestly, this story developed and accomplished everything it need to in its short length. A true testament to its author’s storytelling ability. As for the production and narration: they are excellent and immediately immerse you in the story.

Short, but worth it.

It's been too long since I took a few moments to cry. This story forced those tears, and I'm thankful for it.

Black library story that makes you care

The story follows a Black Templar Dreadnought from being awaken, planetary assault and storming a Ork Stronghold on that most unlucky of planets, Armageddon. What makes this story a stand out from most Black Library stories is not only the fact we get to hear what it's like to be entombed into a Dreadnought which is worth listening to in itself but the ending which is fantastic and pulls off something a lot Black Library book fail to do in making me actually caring about the protagonist, this is helped by Toby Longworth spot on performance.

Also Orks are treated as a actual threat in the story and not just dim witted baffoons to be gunned down in thousands to make the Space Marines look Cool. I wish more of the Black Library author's did this, it something so simple that a good action story needs in that the enemy should be a threat.

Well worth a listen.

Exciting

Loved the narration. The story of the dreadnought is truly inspiring. You feel like you are inside the dreadnought itself. An amazing experience

The Glorious Black Templars

An intriguing and oddly emotive POV of a Dreadnought in the build up to war.

Highly recommended for Wh40k buffs.

AMAZING!!

The book as a hole is amazing if you need to sit down and relax. However this book is incredibly sad and shows this in an amazing way. you could not get any better than this if you are looking for a book focusing on a dreadnought.
10/10 would definitely recommend :)
