Publisher's Summary

The Cadian Gate is broken, and the Imperium is riven in two. The might of the Traitor Legions, kept shackled for millennia behind walls of iron and sorcery, has been unleashed on a darkening galaxy. Among those seeking vengeance on the Corpse Emperor’s faltering realm are the Death Guard, once proud crusaders of the Legiones Astartes, now debased creatures of terror and contagion. 

Mighty warbands carve bloody paths through the void, answering their lord primarch’s call to war. And yet for all their dread might in arms, there is no escape from the vicious legacies of the past, ones that will pursue them from the ruined daemon-worlds of the Eye of Terror and out into the smouldering wastes of the Imperium Nihilus.

I really enjoyed this, never thought I'd like a Death Guard/Nurgle book but definitely better than the boring same old Imperium books

fantasic development of the story.

this certainly developes the story and gives you better insight into the sons of the Mortarian, as well as the Primarch himself.

Disgustingly brilliant!

The Lord Of Silence is a brilliant, if grim exploration of the Death Guard told by John Banks who is utterly fantastic as a narrator and makes all of the characters come to vivid life. Wonderful writing and a decent plot. Highly recommended.

Fantastic performance, and solid story. John Banks collection of voices add a length and breadth to his readings that are phenomenal and hugely entertaining.

Excellent story and very well written.

Love this novel. I have never felt sympathy for Mortarion's sons before but this book really engaged my interest in how they have developed since their brush with the destroyer hive. The narrator did an excellent job as always. Highly reccomend.

Great exploration of the death guard

Chris Wraight does a great job of really delving into the character of the Death Guard, warts and all, really capturing the character of this most esoteric of legions and their relationship with their patron god. The performance by Jonathan Banks really captures the feel of the story. Excellent job all round.
