Publisher's Summary

Book 8 in the Gaunt's Ghosts series.

Infilitrating enemy-held Gereon, Gaunt's Ghosts must deal with daemonic killers, reluctant allies and the taint of Chaos itself. Their mission: to find and stop a traitor general. 

Listen to it because:

Gaunt's Ghosts, as a handful of troopers - including Gaunt himself - embark on a deadly mission into the heart of enemy space...a mission that Gaunt has personal reasons for wanting to finish. It's a deadly journey into the darkness of Chaos that will change the Tanith forever.

The story:

An Imperial general has defected to the enemy, and the secrets he carries could spell the end of the Sabbat Worlds Crusade. Colonel-Commissar Gaunt and a small team from the Tanith First must infiltrate an enemy-held world and gain the trust of the local underground, all the while trying desperately to avoid the ever-present taint of Chaos. Their mission: to stop the traitor general from revealing his secrets - by any means necessary.

Written by Dan Abnett. Narrated by Toby Longworth.

Back to doing what they do, and doing it well

Another great example and experience of the ghost, that just makes you never want to ever stop listening and wanting more I cannot wait for the next book hoping the wait between isn't a long one

Less War - More Insurgency

Despite the smaller scale, quite possibly the best book thus far.
Definitely loved hearing the other side of the war, hearing how they operated and strangely how little they know about Imperial culture. Fascinating.

Never disappointed.

Time and time again, Dan Abnett and Toby Longworth showing why they are a great pair. Abnett constantly writing an amazing story, and Longworth delivering us an amazing audio to follow with.
So good as always.

Great for old Warhammer fans

Heavy spoiler ahead!!!!

This is an excellent listen for anyone who loves grim dark Warhammer. The plot makes way for another book in the series of Gaunt’s Ghosts and shows a potential source for more “ghosts” to join him in a not so expected way. It was also refreshing to see a more human side to our protagonists in this story. Overall, very satisfying 12 or so hours spent.

Solid entry as always

Solid book with a very "French Resistance" feel to it. Good character stuff, good action, interesting portrayal of Chaos. not a deeply introspective mazterpiece, it is 40k after all, but a fun listen. Some dialog can be *too* on the nose or cheesy. I mean cmon: "what are you guys... ghosts?" Really, Dan? lol

Gaunt's not so expendables

In general, always love Gaunt, the 1st and only of Tanith, and Toby narrating. Though this tale lays the plot armor on as thick as Terminator plate. The 80s action movie 1 liners are bad, but funny because of how bad they are.

Overall Toby crushes it, and there are a lot important verse building nuggets of info and little lore easter eggs, but there are too many times the ghosts of Tanith should have seen their last.

Maybe best of gaunts ghosts so far

Handles subjects like chaos forces controlled worlds and how they wish to create a bastardised guard of their own beside the blood pact

one downside

the only downside about the gaunts ghosts audiobooks is having to wait for the next one to release, I hope they re record the later books with toby longworth again to keep the same feel.

One of the best gaunt ghosts story’s

Iv read all the of books so far and for me it’s one of the best ones.

Take a handful of the tanith, throw them on a chaos infested world with a secret mission. What’s not to like…

Like because of the smaller squad you really get to know them and the chaos hosts.
Change from the normal all out war.
Introduction of new characters.
Toby longworth narrating is on point as always.

Abnett on form

one of my favourite entries in the Gaunt's Ghosts series, great look into what happens on a chaos conquered world long after the invasion and what happens to the populace of said world.

A Gereon 12 / 10!

A fantastic addition to the Gaunt's Ghosts storyline, this book is grounded, well-paced and introduces a fresh form of warfare in constrast to previous books. The small character count makes the novel easy to follow and tensions are higher than ever with chaos once more threatening the lives of our Tanith First and Only. Toby Longworth provides an expected excellent performance for an expectedly excellent author in Dan Abnett.
