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.

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.

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.

Fantastic and Hilarious

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

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.

A great epic.

Fantastic performance by the narrator. Well executed concepts of immortal beings, and how they experience time.

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.

What I wish Indomitus was

Perfect Xenos book, please give it a read so Black Library makes more. Trazyn and Orikan have so much personality, it is refreshing to not have Necrons portrayed as 2D metal Skeletors twirling their necrodermis mustaches in the face of Space Marine heros.

Was a great look into cron life, Trazyn was a hilarious read and foil to Orikan's arrogance. A really fun book

Best Xenos Book

Fleshes out two very important Necron characters and tells the story of an ageless rivalry.

Trazyn the Anti-Hero?

Still can't believe how good this book was, Robert Rath actually gave the Necron's believable characters. The gamesmanship between Trazyn and Orikan was so entertaining and Richard Reeds voice acting was top notch as always.

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.

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.

Awful narration

Any enjoyment I may have taken from this book was spoiled by the absolutely awful narration, I could neither engage or even have a mild interest in the story due to that voice
