Publisher's Summary

The Custodian Guard have stood watch over the Emperor's Palace on Terra since the foundation of the Imperium. Charged with protecting the Master of Mankind from all threats, within and without, their fearsome resolve is renowned throughout the galaxy, and their golden armour is the last thing that a would-be assassin or saboteur will ever see.
Alongside the Null-maidens of the Sisters of Silence, who are anathema to psykers and sorcerers alike, there is no threat to the Golden Throne that they alone cannot vanquish...until now.

Might be confusing for folks new to W40k lore

As for the performance and the story it is a lot of fun with intrigue and epic battles. What I think might be confusing is the significance of events in the story that have been building for years in the lore. I'd compare it to watching the season finale of a long and complex series. Why is this reveal or that turn of events blowing people's minds in the story? Not saying new folks should not listen or wouldn't enjoy it but I think it would be more enjoyable to check out some other stories earlier like the Eisenhorn series to help build up and make the context of this story a little more satisfying. For long-term fans of the lore this is pretty freaking epic IMO.

Great to see Black Library on audible!

I liked the story more than I expected (didn’t know what to expect though). Chris Wraight is one of my favorite BL authors- & I think his writing helped carry the book. The characters have depth to them, but the action sequences are well written & not confusing.

I know a fair amount of the story that led up to this setting- so I can’t recommend just blindly diving in.
