The Last Days of EctorHive Fleet Leviathan – billions upon billions of ravenous creatures intent on devouring every scrap of life in the galaxy In its path is the Valedor system five Imperial worlds zealo The Last Days of Ector is an excellent novella showing just what the cover shows The final days of an imperial hive planet in the fangs of a Tyranid invasion I'll put the plot focused part into spoilers They shouldn't be too spoiler heavy but better safe than sorryview spoilerThe story kicks off with a gang of teenage hivers fighting which shows off some of their culture uite well including dialects and oddities in vocabulary Turns out those kids have been participating in the trials to join the Crimson Castellans Chapter of the Adeptus Astartes Space Marines The story proceeds with the gang leader being rejected by Chaplain Gorth due to insubordination he spoke out that it'd be unfair to leave the girl in the group behind just because she was female which not only shows the colder side of the Space Marines but also makes it clear that certain unchangeable rules have to be adhered to even if they may seem sexist to naive imperial youths The Castellans are shown celebrating that they have gathered over a dozen of neophytes in total with their astropath being sent out to transmit a message to the rest of the Chapter The scene shows the Crimson Castellans in a relaxed manner though still bound by rank in some ways Their Chapter's culture is shortly explored before the astropath takes the stage The astropath's sending was especially well done as it used the relatively limited information on the process and framed it in a intuitive understandable way But then our astropath notices a shadow in the warp Hive Fleet Leviathan is approaching the system and warning must be issuedAnd thus begin plans of evacuation hamstrung by politics and the reinforcement of Ector's hive cities Minefields are deployed walls erected holes stuffed A raffle for the evacuation effort is held everybody else euipped and shown how to fight for their lives The Castellans organize the defense coordinating the defenders of EctorBut then the nigh impossible happens another Hive Fleet materializes Kraken and it is upon Ector's back in no time With the defence grid directed at the less immediate threat the people of Ector are forced to fight for survival to buy time for the transports to evacuate the lucky parts of their populationThe novella spans a few weeks from start to finish It is a losing battle from the moment of contact on there could be no doubt about that It does not tell of victories only of cutting one's losses More than anything though it shows just how massive a threat the Tyranids really are something I feel has been underestimated too many times There's no real winning against the Great Devourer only delaying him hide spoiler
