Publisher's Summary

A Necrons audio.

Trazyn the Infinite and Orikan the Diviner are opposites. Each is obsessed with their own speciality and their rivalry spans a millennia. Yet together, they may hold the secret to saving the necron race....

Listen to it because: explore a story told across the millennia that delves deep into a pair of fascinating necron characters, their relationship and their plans for the galaxy.

The story: before the being called the Emperor revealed himself, before the rise of the aeldari, before the necrontyr traded their flesh for immortal metal, the world was born in violence. Even when they inhabited bodies of flesh, Trazyn the Infinite and Orikan the Diviner were polar opposites. Trazyn, a collector of historical oddities, presides over a gallery full of the most dangerous artefacts - and people - of the galactic past. Orikan, a chronomancer without peer, draws zodiacs that predict and manipulate the future. But when an artefact emerges that may hold the key to the necrons’ next evolution, these two obsessives enter a multi-millennia game of cat and mouse that ends civilisations, reshapes timelines, and changes both forever. As riddles unwind and ancient secrets are revealed, the question remains: will their feud save the necron race or destroy it?

Written by Robert Rath. Narrated by Richard Reed.

A beautiful bromance

A really enjoyable story. Great to see some of the other factions of 40K getting some love. Not one single Ultramarine was even mentioned.

Excellent Xenos Adventure

Finally some xenos perspective with some personality. Fun with a dash of grim dark 40k. Excellent oration.

i Have read a good 30 40k books and this is my favourite.
If you are a necron fan this is something you need to listen to. If you aren't its still a good time.

Richard Reed killed it.

What a performance, every character felt distinct and the effort that must've gone into those little expressions to make character interactions flow together really shows.
Well written characters that interact together nicely.
Amazing to see the Xenos races getting some love and all the little references were well received.
I recommend.

Two old cranky Robots fight for Aeons

Should be the title of this book.
Narration was great, genuinely good story for a Warhammer novel, cool lore bits and lots of different factions showing up thanks to Trazyns pokeballs... uh, i mean his tesseract vaults.
Trazyn and Orikans bickering is pretty funny at times - enjoyed this book alot! Made a nice change to see things from someones point of view besides the Imperium.

Two immortal nerds fight and troll each other.

The is a book about two immortal NERDS fighting and trolling each other over a mcguffin. Which turns out to be exactly what I wanted.

Warhammer 40K Fans Rejoice! It's Perfect!

I. Love. This. Story.

I am a massive Warhammer 40K fan. In particular, I have been collecting Necron models since close to their initial release in 2002. I've been sticking with these guys through the initial tank shredding 1st Codex, through the Wardian era, and now through the Indomitus era. This story pretty much embodies everything great about the Necrons and in particular, the characters of Trazyn the Infinite and Orikan the Diviner. This story is basically "two old dudes troll each other mercilessly over the course of several millennia" and it is everything I had hoped it would be. You couldn't ask for a more perfect pair of protagonists in Trazyn and Orikan, both functional demigods of an ancient sentient race that had long since given up their flesh and blood to become the immortal robots that we know them as through the course of this story. One looks to the past to one day rebuild their lost culture, the other looks to the future to see what could be. Through these conflicting viewpoints, they are set on inevitable collision courses spanning tens of thousands of years, and it is a beautiful sight to watch this trainwreck of a dysfunctional co-dependant relationship unfold.

It does require a little bit of knowledge of the Warhammer 40K universe to fully appreciate, but if you like sci-fi dark comedies, it is well worth the little investment to learn what an "Aeldari" is or what is meant by a Necron's "Necrodermis."

I stan Trazycan all the way.

Fantastic and Hilarious

The most bitter and petty rivalry between horrifying immortal robot skeletons I've ever listened to.

A fine addition to my collection...

Of 40k audiobooks. Definitely recommend this one for Necron fans old and new. Gives Necrons more flavor while still keeping them obviously alien.

Great non-imperial story

Really good story and an Amazing performance. Both principal characters written incredibly well and brought to life by the narrator in a stunning and convincing fashion. Super enjoyable. On of the best 40k audios there is, and especially great if you want a break from human stories.

Trazyn is a nercon with a Spaniard accent to me.

Love the performance and writing. The deep look into the grumpy old crons and Necron Court, couldn't be more entertaining.

What a fantastic point of view the Necrons have, truly playing the long game. I hope this is just the beginning for these two characters.

Fantastic book

Humour is not something I expected with a 40K book but it so works here. I believe this is Robert Rath's first 40K book and if so, he nailed it. Richard Reed's voice acting gave each character life especially the parts with the humour. They had me chuckling at the situational comedy that Robert has masterfully created. This book has given me something of a soft spot now for Necrons :D

Got to love these spooky scary metal skeletons

I absolutely loved this book, from the interesting view of the Necron perspective of the galaxy, to Trazyn just collecting anything that catches his eye.
An amazing performance with amazing characters.

Bad art, Amazing book

A big surprise, this book was great, it showed the Necrons in a fantastic new way, with more comedy than you would expect. It's very well written, with a fantastic narration. But whoever chose the rubbish art for this book need to re-think their life choices because it hides a truly great read!

Top stuff

Brilliant story and narration. Well worth it just for the exchanges between Trazyn and Orikan alone. A chance to view the 41st millennium from the perspective of the ancient Necrontyr which is incredibly entertaining all on its own. Highly recommend you pick this one up.

Nice

First 40K novel I've 'read'. Lots of good laughs with the two leads and a interesting story. Made me want to 'read' more of the comedic 40k novels. I'd recommend.
