Summary

In the immediate aftermath of the Word Bearers' attack on Calth, survivors from both sides were driven into the subterranean arcology shelters by the tortured Veridian star.

While their primarch Roboute Guilliman had planned for many seemingly unthinkable eventualities, the Ultramarines now face a new war in the underworld - could Steloc Aethon, renowned captain of 'the Honoured 19th' Company, be the one to lead them to ultimate victory over the traitors? Perhaps, if he can master his own bitter desire for vengeance....

Meh...

I find that when it comes to the Ultramarine acts, scenes, books, characters, merch, games or inserts - there are basically TWO categories... Either insanely good, or mind numbingly "punch-me-in-the-junk-to-stay-awake" mediocre.

Know No Fear was INSANELY GOOD... If I had it in book form I would have torn out all of the pages and rolled in them, just to be even closer to the story...

This was just plain meh... if I wasn't on a cycle bike for large parts of it, I'd have just stopped, like a turned off blender... out of sheer boredom.

But I finish, support and listen to it because I'm a mega fan. Luckily this is more of an aside... but still, if you gonna do a Legion, become the frikken Legion heart and soul.

Anyhow, on to: the Unburdened!!!

Boring

Endlessly predictable clashes of power armour vs terminator armour. This is pretty much the entire story. Word bearer smacks terminator with chainsaw... nothing happens! Word bearer gets destroyed by chain fist surprise surprise!

There is hardly any character development at all it’s just boring combat with no surprises at all, there are hardly any scene visualisations, you don’t know where you are half the time, it’s seems like it’s building to some big secret ending between the main character and antagonist but then.... nothing.. I had to relisten see id missed something.

strong battle story

not a lot of "story" move forward in this book, but it was a good story that really wraps up Betrayal At Calth.

Could be skipped if you're sticking to the meat of the storyline, but you'll be missing out if you do.

Blow by blow military novella

This is the required ultramarine side of the story opposite 'Unburdened'. Unlike 'Unburdened', there is little plot beyond moment by moment descriptions of battle...for 5 hours. The most boring w40k I've encountered so far. Do yourself a favor and skip this one.

It’s an Ultramarines story...

The story does not really progress anything along the overall timeline. It’s just a story to be told.
