Warriors of Ultramar (Uriel Ventris Novels). With these limitations in mind, let's turn to Graham McNeill. He has succeeded in writing a Space Marine novel in the style of Dave Gemmell, which elevated the tone of the novel and overcame the game "tie-in" platform.

Warriors of Ultramar (Uriel Ventris Novels). As a result, the novel stands apart as solid military science fiction.

Warriors of Ultramar book This book combines great Space Marine action, featuring 3 distinct chapters, with a large scale imperial guard action

Warriors of Ultramar book. Uriel Ventris is definitely growing on me and he is slowly becoming one of my favourite loyalist Astartes. Another character that stood out in the book is the Fabricator Marshal Sebastien Montante. This book combines great Space Marine action, featuring 3 distinct chapters, with a large scale imperial guard action. I have yet to read a full novel featuring the enemy hosts of Tyrannids, and this one surely delivers on the action!

Warriors of ultramar. To Stephen, Susan and Arran for your continued friendship. IT IS THE 41st millennium. As captain of the Fourth company, one of Uriel's titles was Master of the Fleet, but in recognition of Tiberius's greater knowledge of space combat, he had deferred the position to the lord admiral, who had taken on the role with gusto. There was no dishonour in this, as the warriors of the Ultramarines followed the teachings of their primarch's holy tome, the Codex Astartes, which stressed the importance of every position being held by those most suited to it, regardless of station.

The Story: Book two in Black Library's iconic Ultramarines series returns

In the cold darkness of space, the voracious alien Tyranids travel from world to world, consuming all in a futile attempt to slake their hunger for bio-matter. Lying directly in their path is the industrial planet Tarsis Ultra, where Captain Uriel Ventris and the Ultramarines of Fourth Company stand shoulder to shoulder with their battle-brothers from the Mortifactors Chapter. As war rages and the situation looks bleak, Uriel must accept the barbaric traditions of his allies and act against the ancient tactics laid down in the holy Codex Astartes if there is to be any chance of destroying the alien menace.

This edition also features the prequel short story Leviathan in which Captain Uriel Ventris and his company are charged with destroying a space hulk.

The Review: There is a phenomenon in the entertainment industry that usually occurs in the second part of a larger series. In books, it is called the second book syndrome but the same thing can be applied to films and graphic novels as well. Bookworm will refer to said phenomenon as midquel syndrome.

Basically, midquel syndrome refers to the opinion that the second volume in a series such as the book Chamber of Secrets or the film Iron Man 2, are the weakest segments in the series, due to fact that they don’t have much direction. They aren’t bad stories by any means. Chamber of Secrets is one of Bookworm’s favorites. He will admit though, its very self-contained. While the first volume is busy introducing this new world to us, the second’s job is mostly to introduce new elements that will come into play later. Does the second volume in the Ultramarines Series: Warriors of Ultramar fall prey to midquel syndrome? Let’s find out!

Like many Warhammer books, there are several prologues made in order to setup the proper tone of death and mayhem. The first is a simple hidden enemy story but the next one is pretty interesting. It shows a band of street thugs in the slums of Erebus, where the novel takes place. They are robbing a bar and they are about as despicable as they come. Some readers may just dismiss these characters out of hand but they do have a role to play in the story and it is actually pretty important.

The story proper though, starts out promising enough with one of Bookworm’s favorite events in 40k literature, interaction between two different chapters of Space Marines.

The Ultramarines 4th Company has journeyed to the distant world of Posul in order to solicit aid from the Mortifactors, a successor chapter of the Ultramarines. Neither of them had heard from each other in thousands of years. To Ventris’ shock, the Mortifactors have changed quite a bit in the intervening years. The Morifactors’ customs are bizarre to say the least, some say they reek of impure sorceries. The most shocking of all, they no longer follow the Codex Astartes to the letter. The Codex Astartes is the bible of the Space Marines, written by the Ultramarines Primarch Roboute Guilliman. As such, the Ultramarines view chapter who disregard its tenants as inferior to themselves. To see fellow sons of Guilliman, becoming grim faced, flesh eating, death worshipers is vexing to say the least.

That is part of what helps the book succeed. Not only are the Mortifactors interesting as characters the way they bounce off the Ultramarines adds drama to the story. Uriel and the other Space Marines are visibly distressed by the actions of their brothers. This makes them relatable to the reader as we have all been a situation that requires us to work with people who make us uncomfortable but we have no choice in the matter. The Space Marines have a very human reaction.

Speaking of human reactions, the book takes us to another favorite scenario: Interaction with mortals. While most Astartes look down on ordinary humans (with good reason) the Ultramarines, by and large, do not. Some of the most memorable passages in the book involve Ultramarine Learchus training the human defense forces. While it is clear that he thinks their skill is lacking compared to Macragge.

If there are some flaws, the main one is that the story tends to fall apart in the latter half. The first part of the book is extremely memorable but for some reason, when it gets to the action it becomes rather dull. Perhaps the reason for that is the action is fairly standard when it comes to Space Marine stories. A lot of running and shooting and shouting. Honestly, Bookworm has trouble remembering the last third apart from a few details.

Final Verdict: The answer to the question posed at the beginning of this review is no. This book does not succumb to midquel syndrome. While there are certainly factors which would lend to the ‘yes’ camp. Warriors of Ultramar does a sequel right. It is the second part of the story, Uriel Ventris’ story.

Four Mortifactors out of Five

Fight, fight, fight.. All day long..

If you're looking for intense combat set in the dark world of WH40K, this book is for you. As the Ultramarines and their desperate allies face off against an unsatiable Tyranid hive fleet, you get nonstop and highly exciting action. McNeill is one of the very best WH40K authors and does an excellent job of living up to his name here. Well-described and gruesome battle scenes are interspersed with the development of a whole host of intriguing characters. Even though the primary enemy is distinctly non-human and impossible to understand, you get plenty of great characters here, including Space Marines, Inquisitors, Imperial Guardsmen, nobles, and even slum-living gangsters. While the action really drives the story, the characters in this book are without a doubt some of the best I've found in WH40K lit.

This book is included in the excellent ULTRAMARINES OMNIBUS, and is the second installment in the saga of Uriel Ventris. To read these books in the correct order: NIGHTBRINGER, WARRIORS OF ULTRAMAR, STORM OF IRON, then DEAD SKY BLACK SUN. Only STORM OF IRON is not included in the omnibus edition but was recently reprinted and is readily available.

I do not play Warhammer 40K--but I do love the stories, and fluff that go with that universe. This is the second novel continuing the story of Ultramarines captain Uriel Ventris as the 4th company join forces with the Mortifactors and Imperial Guard in defense against the overwhelming Tyranid horde. I've read much about the Warhammer 40K universe and this book is most definitely the best so far.
Like the first novel there are many memorable scenes, however unlike the first novel, "Warriors of Ultramar" is not weakened by corny dialog, this time around Graham does it perfectly. His writing would fit perfectly for the big screen as he superbly captures the desperation and almost hopeless stance of the imperial forces as they are beaten back to make a final stand on a frozen planet.
I highly recommend this book for all fans of "science fiction/fantasy" war books, and all fans of Warhammer 40K

The full horror of the Tyranid threat is revealed in this classic novel of conflict against the most vile alien race. There is a mixture of Space Fleet warfare, urban and tench combat as well as special forces operations in the book There is an excellent climax and yet it is also filled with vivid action throughout the story, with numerous excellent cameos making up this brutal drama.

As an avid and longtime fan of the Warhammer 40,000 universe (I both read the novels and play the miniatures battle game upon which they are based), I have to admit I was very disappointed with this book. The story is a very straight-forward tale of alien invasion, with no twists or turns in the plot. The Tyranids land on a planet, they run into the Space Marines, a huge fight ensues, the end. That about sums it all up. The characterizations are mostly wooden, with the troubled Uriel Ventris and the atypical Mortifactors providing the only conflict amongst the human characters. The Tyranids are a terrible choice as the main villains, because they're just slavering beasts with no motives other than to kill and consume (think Alien). They are certainly menacing but anyone wanting more "depth" from their bad guys is going to be frustrated here. If you're looking for really great WH40K novels check out the Inquisitor Eisenhorn books or the Gaunt's Ghosts series. After reading those I was hoping for more from "Warriors of Ultramar".

Warriors of Ultmar was a lot better than nightbringer, wait, no.....yes, no....while maybe, not a lot, but better, yeah, that's it. This book was very good, I personally enjoyed the imperial guard part of the book and the side story with that character (I forgot his name). I Hated the whole space ship battle, awful and boring, not poorly written I just don't enjoy space ships.
