I received this book from NetGalley and Black Library for review. Dan Abnett is the bee's knees of Warhammer 40k and his writing transcends the already awesome setting especially when it is the softer underbelly of the setting he gets to cover, that underbelly being the poor bog-standard non-augmented humans of the Imperium. The action is fast, the characters are colorful and gritty and inevitably you end up wanting more, I hope they Black Library are returning the Phantine XX soon.
Abnett is bang on form with his latest Sabbat Worlds novel. Tense, gripping and will have your pulse racing at the speed of a las round. Whether it's mid air dogfights or on the ground in the Ops room the pressure is constant and palpable. I've been a Warhammer fan since the days of Rogue Trader and it's not a universe i'm going to tire of any time soon. Fantastic work. This is a novel from with a nice new cover with a ton of existing reviews, so I can't add any value with another other than to say you'll probably like this if you like a lot of action from a gifted and prolific author.
I really appreciate the copy for review!! Jun 28, Peter rated it it was amazing. As a fan of the Warhammer 40k universe, this was a nice change up from the usual space battle flair. It follows a squadron of figher pilots and their struggles through the campaign they are assigned to. Sep 13, Walter rated it it was amazing. Battle of Britain done in the grim darkness of the 41st century. Gripping yarn of aerial combat in the tradition of Biggles, with a collection of well written WWII RAF type characters and some unexpectedly moving moments. Another great book by Abnett, I enjoyed this a lot more than I expected.
Oct 19, Matthew Tse rated it really liked it. Originally placed at an adult level of reading, high school students should have no problem comprehending it. While there are no doubt, many differences between the Battle of Britain and the Battle for Enothis planet story is based on , several main themes are similar.
In Britain, German aircraft began with raids on British convoys and aircraft. On Enothis, chaos forces bombed straggling Imperial land forces, before progressing onto coastal villages. Later, German forces targeted British cities day and night, just as Enothian cities were constantly assaulted.
Finally, British forces regroup and begin to repel German raids, while Imperial forces find their voices and begin to beat off the enemy. Abnett does an excellent job of describing everything, from landscape to aircraft, to combat and beyond. Details are engaging and leave room for imagination to run free. Conflicts in air and on land are illustrated with vivid detail, and he even goes so far as to put times and places at the beginning of every sub-chapter, to make things easier for readers.
Although I initially enjoyed the book at first, writing this review, I realize some of the drawbacks in the novel. The overall plot is detailed and air combat is well illustrated, however the personalities of the characters are shallow and can be related to only to an extent.

Jan 16, Bob rated it liked it Shelves: military-sci-fi. This is a Warhammer 40k book that I got from my brother, from his favorite author. It was somewhat interesting, although I think obviously more relatable to someone who knows right offhand what a "Cyclone" versus a "Hell Talon" versus a "Thunderbolt" are, from the Warhammer 40k game. I didn't know any of that, so I had to figure it out as I went.
The writing was fairly good in a fast-paced, desperate military sci-fi style, befitting a dogfight style of aerial warfare. The storyline is rather str This is a Warhammer 40k book that I got from my brother, from his favorite author. The storyline is rather straightforward, there were no huge surprises or plot twists, but character development was interesting and I liked how the climax was handled. Well-formed plot, interesting characters, decent story. Dec 20, Matthew rated it it was amazing Shelves: gw-sci-fi-read.

Abnett puts you in the briefing room and cockpit of Imperium forces fighters against the Archenemy over the skies of Enothis. The character vignettes, as always, are remarkably poignant studies of human nature. Like Gemmell, Abnett pulls at the heartstrings when characters die.

This book has themes of several classic aerial combats films and stories and its a fun read throughout. Its a rare book for the 40k universe, if not the only one dealing with aerial combat and this increases its appeal. Jul 16, Eohall rated it it was amazing. Fantastic pulpy military sci-fi. I don't have a lot of experience with the aerial-combat, fighter-ace genre, but the language and readability of the protracted dogfighting scenes seems like it would have cross-genre appeal.
A very "human" book for the WH40K universe.

Mar 12, Aleksander Honc rated it it was amazing. It really reminded me of Squadron by A. Yeah, you can find there a lot of references to the battle of England, but is that so bad? I don't think so. I can recommend that to anyone who liked previous Abnett's books.
Feb 27, Danilo Oberti rated it it was amazing. The story of a fighter squadron deeply embroiled into a war against the archenemy of the Imperium, somewhat crewed by rookies, misfits and troubled pilot. And dogfight. Lot of it.
