Publisher's Summary

After the success of their desperate mission to Salvation's Reach, Colonel Commissar Gaunt and the Tanith First race to the strategically vital forge world of Urdesh, besieged by the brutal armies of Anarch Sek. However, there may be more at stake than just a planet. The Imperial forces have made an attempt to divide and conquer their enemy, but with Warmaster Macaroth himself commanding the Urdesh campaign, it is possible that the Archenemy assault has a different purpose to decapitate the Imperial command structure with a single blow. Has the Warmaster allowed himself to become an unwitting target? And can Gaunt's Ghosts possibly defend him against the assembled killers and war machines of Chaos?

Outstanding

The ghosts series is amazing. This is another example of how good the novels from the 40k universe can be. I really hope that convert the other books in the series so I can buy them all.

Some character voices are unbearable, good overall

Some characters voiced by the narrator are absolutely unbearable. Specifically the child Yoncy Criid when she is crying or whining the narrators voice gets so high pitched and shrill I cannot stand it. I still to this day do not know what happened during any scene where he uses this voice as I had to skip through them.

Outside of that the performance is well done. The voice acting is emotional and there is a vast variety of voices and the inflection and tone changes based on content which is very nice.

I had to deduct some points for the story as it feels incomplete. I cant go as far as to say its a short story as it is plenty long enough but it feels like there was a lot of padding added in some places to make it long enough and this book is just being used to set up the coming ones.

Worth the time and credit for sure, but beware the shrilling voice of the crying little girl.

what the feth!

I have read all of the ghosts books. Multiple times. I love the story and the characters. This is my first audio book of the series and it was excellently performed. I have waited 2 years for this...I am thoroughly disappointed. I will read it when my paper copy comes in, however, it feels like half a book.

Another great Gaunt's Ghosts novel.

It's nothing like I predicted. The rank Gaunt was promoted wasn't removed for dramatic effect. The end set up for the next novel.

Still some of the best 40k

Dan Abnett is still delivering 40k above the cut. The performance for this book wasn't my favorite but it definitely wasn't bad. The writing and the story though are good and of a higher quality than many other 40k novels.

Great addition to the Gaunt's Ghost series.

I hope they put all of the Gaunt's Ghosts books on Audible. The only negative thing I can say about the story is that it has a bit of a cliff hanger ending. I can't wait for the next one.

More Gaunt’s Ghosts please!

After listening to this book I put on myself I would be great if they did the back library of the Gaunts Ghosts. Dan Abnett such a great writer, he keeps your attention and wanting more. Read well by James Cameron Stewart.

Glory for the Emperor's Finest

James Stewart delivers the finely crafted words penned by the master of war, Dan Abnett, with supreme artistry. There is a fine line between making characters sound distinct and unique, and making them sound like garbage, and Stewart is very much a man in the former category, able to switch tones and mannerisms effortlessly, as well as (for the most part) being able to keep them consistent.

This is to say nothing of the writing itself; if you are a longtime fan of Abnett, warhammer 40k, or Gaunt's Ghosts, you will not be let down.

Damn good and fast paced. Loved it. Lots of surprises and shocking moments. Felt like I was watching the Walking Dead.

Worst book in the series

This book is pure filler. It's an obvious setup for the next book and lacks a lot of the story that makes the other novels such an enjoyable read. There's little action and what there is, has been done before. I could almost believe that this wasn't written by Dan Abnett, which is a shame because after 2 decades of reading his novels this one is the only bad book I've come across and it just so happens to be in my favourite series.

Only half a story...

A short story was cut out of the main novel and the main novel is really just a set up for the next novel. Some twists and reveals but little conclusion.

Amazing as always

great stuff as always. Action and characters you love and hate. And love to hate.
big surprises and some real shifts that keep the ongoing series feeling fresh.
please don't make us wait so long for the next one.
I'm getting old. I might die soon. I want to read the end of the story

A welcome return

At last Gaunt returns and in a short space of time, Abnett reminds us not to take anything for granted. Here’s hoping the next one arrives a bit sooner

Good book, great as part of the series

My first Gaunt's Ghost novel. Really enjoyed it as I love the Warhammer 40k setting.

As I had not read previous books in series it took a little while 'catch up' with the story arc and characters If you haven't then don't worry, this is still a good listen. If you have then this will be a great listen

The novel ends quite a few unanswered questions, a bit unsatisfing but makes me look forward to the next installment. In the mean time I will read the series from the start.
