Publisher's Summary

Get ready for Attack of the Necron, the first action-packed story in the Warhammer Adventures: Warped Galaxy series, brilliantly read by David Tennant, the tenth incarnation of television's Doctor Who.

The adventure begins....

Zelia Lor's life changes when alien Necrons attack her home planet and tear it apart! Separated from her mother, Zelia must escape the doomed world, her only hope a scrambled transmission promising safety at a mysterious place known only as the Emperor's Seat. She is joined by a ragtag group of survivors: the street-tough Talen, gadget-obsessed Martian boy Mekki and superintelligent alien-ape Fleapit.

Great performance, but for a VERY young crowd

I love warhammer and I love David Tennant. I thought he did a great job portraying this adventure of young people being brought together to fight adversity. The story itself really wasn't that bad, it was just written for such a young crowd that it ends up lacking much imagination. Still, it is a great book for that young crowd. There is no swearing, sex/nudity, or even any blood. The violence that there is only leaves damaged robots or the occasional person turned to dust from some over powered weapon.

Great book, but if you aren't younger than a teenager, go into it realizing that it is written for very young kids. If you can accept that, it is completely worth the listen.

A great start!

This is a nice series for teens and teens that isn't a bad listen for adults either. There are 4 main characters, the protagonist being a 12 year-old girl. It's nice for me, a 45year-old woman, I'm really excited to see female characters as intelligent, strong, competent and (most of all) self-rescuing in stories for girls changing from children into young women. It shows that they don't have to wait around for someone else to help them -- they do have the abilities to help themselves.
The fact that Scottish actor David Tennant does the narrating helps make it more enjoyable for the whole family to sit and listen as a group, like on a car trip, or in the evening for family time.

All in all an enjoyable listen.

Great story for the future warhammer fans

David Tennant does a wonderful job, and the story was just right at capturing the Warhammer universe without having to get overly graphic for little ones out there.

not bad

It was a nice surprise. I expected it to be bad, but it is actually pretty good. Manages to stay authentic 40k despite it being written for kids.

Excellent Middle Grade 40K

I was skeptical about GW and Black Library bringing the Grim Darkness of Warhammer to a young audience. Wow. Well done. I can’t wait to gift this to a bunch of young readers I know will love it.

Good but way too short

Good story but it's a waste of a credit for less than 3hours of story. it's GW chopping a normal length story into 10 pieces and charging full price for each like they do with game rules.

Great warhammer story for younglings!

Great story for young ones not yet ready for the grimdark, the only downside is the cliffhanger ending. Book two here we come!

A great story my daughter loved it

This is a great kids adventure set in the 40k universe My 8 year old loves it and has read the paperback version too. It is nowhere near as heavy-going as most of the other titles from Games Workshop Because it is aimed at children. I bought this to listen to on a long car journey to stop her getting bored but she will sit and listen to it whilst painting miniatures with me. Her favourite characters are Zelia and Fleapit. and she can't wait for the next book.

Good but short

Quite good story, trying and succeeding in finding a balance between being faithful to the 40k vision and a story that is suitable for younger viewers.

Enjoyable

Very good- aimed at young adults but I enjoyed it- a good adventure with not too much gore. The compendium would have been better at the beginning- to set the scene. David Tennant’s narration excellent

Great little story

A very refreshing take on the 40K universe. It has a touch of epic planet crushing dark fantasy as you can expect in a Warhammer 40k Universe.

However as the story is following the trials of group of children, it has a touching human element that leads to adventure aligned with secret 7.

A great way for younger readers to ease into Warhammer, well written with great narration, I highly recommend this.
