Publisher's Summary

Book 3 in the Gaunt's Ghosts series.

On the shattered world of Verghast, Gaunt and his Ghosts find themselves embroiled within an ancient and deadly civil war as a mighty hive-city is besieged by an unrelenting foe.  

Listen to it because: The return of a classic Gaunt's Ghosts novel! The Tanith First deploy to Verghast to help break the Chaos siege of Vervunhive. Tanks clash with daemon engines, Imperial Guardsmen make brave last stands and Colonel-Commissar Gaunt steps up and takes control of the war effort, showing for the first time the command abilities that will go on to make him a legend.  

The story: On the world of Verghast, a grinding war between two hive cities - one loyal to the Imperium, the other fallen to the worship of the Dark Gods - is bolstered by the forces of the Astra Militarum, spearheaded by the Colonel-Commissar Gaunt and the Tanith First and Only. But bitter rivalries and treachery threaten to derail the defence of Vervunhive, and it falls to Gaunt to take command of the Imperial forces and forge victory from an almost certain defeat.  

Written by Dan Abnett.

You line them up and I’ll buy them up!

There is no better series to start with for Warhammer 40k than the Gaunt series. Necropolis is a wonderful addition to it. I can’t wait for book 4!

The series just keeps getting better

As always Dan Abnett knows how to write regular humans in a relatable way. All of the classic Tanith characters are just as good as ever. I am convinced that if I had to choose one Commissar to follow it would be Gaunt.

Always been a fan of Gaunt

I've always been a fan of Gaunt and the Tanith First. I read the books years ago. Dan Abnett is a masterful writer and never fails to produce a powerful story. Toby Longworth is by far among the best narrators out there.

Sold on the series.

I've listened to the first 2 books as well in the series and they were good but didn't really hold me captive. THIS book is the one that will keep me hooked. The writing, the narration, the setting are all fantastic. One chapter it's a personal drama with ghaunt and others engaging political intrigued and the next you're listening to a news reel about a far off war that feels as if it really could be.

Excellent book. Excellent story.

into its stride

this series of books is moving from strength to strength, capturing the relentless grind of war in the 40k universe and with enough humour so that it doesn't become too grim.

Fantastic continuation on the story

Been waiting on needles for this book to be voiced, and it's finally here and doesn't disappoint at all.
Toby Longworth yet again does an absolutely stellar job on the narration and brings every character to life.
The writing by Abnett is also great, and he's doing what he does best.
Absolutely loved it, start to finish and can't wait for the 4th installment.

Epic as always

Perfect, absolutely perfect. I started reading these when they first came out and now I can catch up where I left off with audio while I work.
Please release the next one soon.

voice acting is the best. capture how i thought Gaunt would sound in my head. Dan as always knocks it out the park with his writing.

if you have not read Gaunts ghosts yet go buy the first one now! you won't be disappointed.

bring on Honor Guard
