As always I listened to the audio bookFirst off the narration s stellar I love the leaning way back from the mic and yellingI came Anything For His Son in expecting a war book stuffed full of one dimensional characters and a bunch of gore I expected a flat story and very little character development I expected to be mildly entertained I got all that and a little The characters had a bit personality than I would have guessed I really enjoyed the way the author would give a bit of backstory before brutally killing off people The weapons and aliens were described with a satisfactory amount of ambiguity to leave something tomagination maybe those familiar with the lore don t need to magine All the tropes and stereotypes of a gruesome war book are there The story follows a typical arc there are no unexpected twists no Deep Character Development And It Doesn T N DetailsHelsreach By character development and t doesn t n DetailsHelsreach by Dembski BowdenBlack Library Publishing414 PagesThis s an advance copy reviewDescriptionWhen the world of Armageddon s attacked by orks the Black Templars Space Marine Chapter are amongst those sent to liberate t Chaplain Grimaldus and a band of Black Templars are charged with the defence of Hive Helsreach from the xenos nvaders n one of the many battlezones But as

A spark of hope remains Yeah like that Dembski Bowden drags the reader all the way down n to the muck mud and blood takes away all hope and slowly gives The Single Dad's Redemption it backI enjoyed the Steel Legion parts as well as the Salamander bits The Black Templars are a bit overwhelming for my tastes butt s a damn fine story The ending left me almost a little flat I m not sure what happened there Without spoiling too much I have no way of explaining t short
Of Saying It Wassaying t was what I expected That s a good thingAaron Dembski Bowden has written another gritty dirty story full of actually nteresting characters His action scenes are largely clear the dialogue witty the description good I cannot say whether there are 40k canon ssues as I m not as familiar as some other reviewers The plot was nteresting and
kept me going The ending was a bit of a twist butme going The ending was a bit of a twist but We are judged n life for the evil we destroy Helsreach When Hitler Took Austria: A Memoir of Heroic Faith by the Chancellor's Son is possibly the most brutal 40k novel I ve read yet At what costs victory worth t ADB s arguably the best of the Black Library authors He excels at character depth and n humanizing the Astartes The difference n the creeds of the Black Templars and the Salamanders was nteresting to behold how those of differing chapters may not understand one another s beliefs t s very humanizing

Consider Space Marines borderline psychopathic bio
ENGINEERED SUPERMEN WHO KILL IN THEsupermen who kill n the of the crusade and the Emperor Period full stop Have no doubts boys and girls these guys are bastards The comparison scenes with the Salamanders Chapter was telling the Salamanders are one of the most humane of chapters protecting the citizens s kept firmly n mind For the Black Templars Tom Waits - Mule Variations its going off to kill stuff and why are these damn civiliansn the way Grimaldus s pretty much the worst and the best of these His detachment s telling you can see how a person has been altered n such a way that they are really no longer human any driven by hatred and zeal few of us
CAN IMAGINE TO DESTROY THE XENOSimagine to destroy the xenos do exaggerate a bit but Aaron Dembski Bowden s uickly becoming one of the Black Library s best authors of characterful fiction Like Soul Hunter before this the characters are all very colorful and come from a variety of backgrounds Each seems like a person dealing with a lifetime of war ndoctrination mind scrubbingand war Dembski Bowden does a fine job of taking the reader and tossing him right n the middle of a firefight or burning vehicle He even makes Chaplain Grimaldus nteresting Now THAT s a feat You d think that a character like that would be boring two dimensionalflat ADB pulls t off He really knows how to make characters come alive
