    Book five of the Siege of Terra

    After a series of victories, the Imperial forces are on the back foot once more. The power of Chaos is rising, the Traitors gain ground, and all hope seems lost. Can Terra endure?

    Listen to it because: delve back into the biggest war in Imperial history, which is getting even bigger as Traitor Titans land and the influence of the warp grows, plaguing the defenders in all sorts of vile ways.

    The story: the victories of Saturnine and the sacrifices of the Eternity Wall space port have faded into the hope of yesterday. Denied but not defeated, the Traitors intensify their assault on the Imperial Palace. With the principal space ports in Horus’ hands, the Warmaster now drains the heavens of his reserves.

    As the pressure of the assault increases, the power of Chaos waxes. The waking lives of the defenders are filled with despair, while their dreams pull them in search of a false paradise. As the fabric of the defences fails and the will of those who stand on them cracks, Horus commands the Titans of the Legio Mortis to breach the walls. Against them stands the might of Mercury Wall and the strength of the Legio Ignatum. Ancient rivals, the god-engines of both Legions meet in battle, while within the walls a few desperate individuals seek a way to turn back the tide of the warp’s malign influence. Across Terra, lost warriors and travellers make their way through wastelands and gardens of horror, towards home and an unknown future.

    Written by John French. Narrated by Jonathan Keeble. Running time 16 hours 26 mins.

    Mhmmm...I guess I am getting fatigued of the Siege

    Okay, first up, the book is good overall. Performance and writing are on the level we come to expect of the siege novels...also I liked the Titan Engagements much better then in titan death.

    We even have a couple of cool reveals to enjoy. So...why I am getting tired?

    There a lot more sub plots running through this, some of them seem to be squeezed in just to somehow resolve them. But the tension of the every subplot starts to getting off pace when so often the escalation becomes muted by cutting away from it.
    Partly it is borderline misery porn, when you follow the white scar character when he jet again suffers step by step. The resolution of the story thread left me puzzled.
    Okay...that told me nothing really new about him. He takes a beating and goes on...I could have told that before. I get the symbolism behind his journey especially when he picks up company. But it actually started to bore me half way through.

    While his subplot maybe just being a bit badly paced, others are chuck full of characters which motivations are well placed in the start but then need to push for space in an tbh already long book. 5 or 6 sub plots I think in the end. That’s a lot of stuff to keep your focus up for.

    Regardless, I enjoyed my time with it. But a bit of editing or cutting could have helped to streamline the overall experience.

    Too many Stories in one

    The book has about 6 different storylines packed in. One. Some are interesting, some not so much.

    The narrator can only carry so much

    The worst book of the siege on terra series. Not weakest, worst. Extremely one sided and full of BS storylines. The whole Mortis point is totally wasted with very forgettable characters. Nothing, NOTHING on the Dies Irae. It's just that one big evil engine. No plot on the inside. Basically nothing on the Horus side of things, except some completely useless dream sequences...
    In all the like 10 storylines there are maybe two, which are interesting. What a waste of time and money...
