Publisher's Summary

After the success of their desperate mission to Salvation's Reach, Colonel Commissar Gaunt and the Tanith First race to the strategically vital forge world of Urdesh, besieged by the brutal armies of Anarch Sek. However, there may be more at stake than just a planet. The Imperial forces have made an attempt to divide and conquer their enemy, but with Warmaster Macaroth himself commanding the Urdesh campaign, it is possible that the Archenemy assault has a different purpose to decapitate the Imperial command structure with a single blow. Has the Warmaster allowed himself to become an unwitting target? And can Gaunt's Ghosts possibly defend him against the assembled killers and war machines of Chaos?

Outstanding

The ghosts series is amazing. This is another example of how good the novels from the 40k universe can be. I really hope that convert the other books in the series so I can buy them all.

Some character voices are unbearable, good overall

Some characters voiced by the narrator are absolutely unbearable. Specifically the child Yoncy Criid when she is crying or whining the narrators voice gets so high pitched and shrill I cannot stand it. I still to this day do not know what happened during any scene where he uses this voice as I had to skip through them.

Outside of that the performance is well done. The voice acting is emotional and there is a vast variety of voices and the inflection and tone changes based on content which is very nice.

I had to deduct some points for the story as it feels incomplete. I cant go as far as to say its a short story as it is plenty long enough but it feels like there was a lot of padding added in some places to make it long enough and this book is just being used to set up the coming ones.

Worth the time and credit for sure, but beware the shrilling voice of the crying little girl.

Worst book in the series

This book is pure filler. It's an obvious setup for the next book and lacks a lot of the story that makes the other novels such an enjoyable read. There's little action and what there is, has been done before. I could almost believe that this wasn't written by Dan Abnett, which is a shame because after 2 decades of reading his novels this one is the only bad book I've come across and it just so happens to be in my favourite series.

Only half a story...

A short story was cut out of the main novel and the main novel is really just a set up for the next novel. Some twists and reveals but little conclusion.

Read it instead!

book was 100% awesome. the narration was horrendous however. i will never listen to another book narrated by this james stewart bloke. genuinely struggled to listen. Definitely recommend that you READ this book instead of listening to it.
