The Battle Titans of the Adeptus Titanicus are towering war engines, striding to war as holy effigies of the Omnissiah. Greatest of all are the mighty Warlord Titans, their weapons bringing righteous death to alien and heretic alike. Still reeling from a near disastrous battle against tyranids, the Pallidus Morr demi-legio is assigned to a new warzone, a nearby forge world which has fallen under the sway of Chaos.

ONE OF THE FEW

One of the few books written in whole about Titans and yes a few Tanks, and it's a cracking book . Very well read and very well written, worth every penny or that valuable credit if your a member. I'm not going to tell you the plot in any way as that would spoil it. Just to say it's full of surprises, twists, turns, battles galore ,and much much more. So yes it's well worth the listen and I totally recommend and then some.
This. Is one brill book not to be missed, so add it to your 40K collection I did and havnt regretted in the slightest..

In the hellish sprawl of Imperial Terra, Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor Erasmus Crowl serves as a stalwart protector, for even the Throneworld is not immune to the predations of its enemies. In the course of his duty, Crowl becomes embroiled in a dark conspiracy, one that leads all the way to the halls of the Imperial Palace. As he plunges deeper into the shadowy underbelly of the many palace districts, his investigation attracts the attention of hidden forces, and soon he and his acolyte Spinoza are being hunted.

A Book That Brings Terra To Terrible. Life.

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 27-10-18

The Carrion Throne is one of the best audio books I have ever listened too. It brings Terra to terrible life, the futility and awful daily misery of a citizen's fear and terror of there short painful existence. While the inquisition face near insurmountable odds in the daily smog filled world where all may be against them, including there own kind.
There is so much in this book that one listen is not enough, you just miss things....you just do and for the warhammer 40k fanatic and role player there is so much background info on holy terra you will be taking notes all the way through.
This book has something for everyone and more besides.
So sit back and enjoy for I heartily recommend it and then some. Ave Emporatis .🙏

This is a book and a half, as i recommend heart and soul. A little written about Chapter that we should after hearing this book want to hear more of. It is so well written and told by all the cast, there is nothing to fault, except maybe it's to short. But one could always say that.
All I will say to wrap up is sit back in a darkened room, turn the volume up and indulge in pure Warhammer 40K at its best. Then when it's over take a deep breath and be Thankfull that this is an Audible Book/Drama unsurpassed. Then Beg for more as the unworthy Motals that we are.

Odd's luck has been bad so far. He lost his father on a Viking expedition, his foot was crushed beneath a tree and the winter seems to be going on forever. But when Odd flees to the woods and releases a trapped bear, his luck begins to change. The eagle, bear and fox he encounters reveal they're actually Norse gods trapped in animal form by the evil frost giants who have conquered Asgard, the city of the gods....

Do not mistake that this audio book is just for children, if you do you would be so very wrong and miss out on another of Neil's great books. Though not all that long, it is highly entertaining, funny at times and where needed accurate for a book of fiction. I really truely, highly and totally recommend this Audio Book without any reservations whatsoever.
Just sit back With the grandkids or kids and let Young and Old alike really enjoy.

This a must listen, a fantastic book by no stretch of the imagination. Very well read by Toby Longworth, which brings all the characters alive. Though a long book it does not seem so and ends all not quickly with so many twists and turns it has your head spinning. But rest assured you won't get lost and thank the brilliant writing of Dan Abnett to that fact. Well worth the one credit purchase you will not regret it as its the author at his best. Can't wait to listen to the next book in the series, and the further adventures of Eisenhorn. Be confident in the fact you will not be bored as you hang on to every word of the inquisition keeping the imperium of man pure. And no I'm not giving the story away, don't want to spoil this one one bit.

A Cracking good book

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 26-05-12

This is one of those rare sci-fi books that grabs you by the throat and won't let go as it takes you on a ride that is so beleivable that its chilling. The sentences are at time so short it leaves no fat and is pure descriptive narative. That imprints on your mind exactly what is ment to be convayed, this is a rare experiance indeed as not many sc-fi books reach those hights. A excellent listen of a book so well written and read it is begging for more of the same. It looks like that won't happen anytime soon though,a crying shame. I hope you enjoy it as much as i did. I highly recomend.

The tales of The Silmarillion are set in an age when Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, dwelt in Middle-Earth, and the High Elves made war upon him for the recovery of the Silmarils, the jewels containing the pure light of Valinor. Included on the recording are several shorter works. "The Ainulindale" is a myth of the Creation, and in the "Valaquenta" the nature and powers of each of the gods is described.

Part One of a Sweeping Saga of Early Middle Earth

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 15-07-07

This sweeping saga of the origins of Middle Earth, from its creation to the beginning of the Hobbit.
This first volume Read By Martin Shaw, where his rich voice evokes the mystery and splendour of an age long past, of Elves, Dwarfs and Men with tales of great Dragons and things even worse by far, Of Morgoth, Saurons dark master, Matched against the races of the great Gods of the west.
He makes The Master Story Weaver -Tolkien?s Work breathe and come alive. Where with eyes closed one can hear the whispering trees and gently running streams of the beginning of time in the realm of Middle Earth.
I can?t recommend this Audio book enough, for diehard fans of Tolkien and those who want to know how Middle Earth and Elves came into being.
I agree it can be hard going, but ultimately well worth the effort and then some.
So come on take the plunge and welcome to the world of Tolkien.
