A Warhammer 40,000 novel.
Follow the exploits of Oltyx, who, having finally been granted the throne of the Ithakas Dynasty, now faces far greater threats, from within and without. He soon learns that the lessons of kingship are not quite what he had hoped.
Listen to it because: experience the tumultuous reality of ruling a necron royal court and battling the the Imperium from the perspective of an necron lord whose mind is split into discrete partitions.
The story: after centuries of exile, the necron lord Oltyx has at last been granted the thing he has always craved: the throne of the Ithakas Dynasty. Kingship, however, is not quite what he had hoped for - Oltyx's reign currently exists aboard the dying battleship Akrops, as it lumbers away from the ruins of his crownworld. Behind it is a hostile armada of unfathomable size, launched by the barbaric alien war-cult known as the Imperium of Man. And within the Akrops' sepulchral hold, an even greater threat festers - the creeping horror of the flayer curse. Faced with such overwhelming odds, Oltyx leads a desperate voyage into a darkness so profound that salvation and doom look much the same. If he and his dynasty are to make it through that long night, Oltyx will have to become a very different sort of king.
Written by Nate Crowley. Narrated by Richard Reed.

Crowley makes the Necrons fascinating.
The lore of the Necrons has been evolving after years of being nameless, faceless Horrors. Nate Crowley has done a fantastic job showing us things through their oculars and has made them a fully fleshed out (sorry) people.
By drawing on real-world classics, Crowley gives us the hero's journey of Odysseus and the founding story of Aeneas in the form of an undead robot, all while mixing in some genuine fun and humor.
The narration by Richard Reed is also superb, finding characterization in a race defined by their monotony.

A++ Emotional Damage
This was an excellent sequel that introduced new depth and characters. No journey worth remembering is easy, and this one really had my emotions doing the most. I legit cried at one point. Narration and story are amazing and I can't wait for the third!!!
