Summary

Piamen is a tranquil world in the far reaches of the galaxy. Since throwing off the yoke of alien invaders, they have remained free and peaceful...until the coming of the Imperium. When they refuse to join mankind's star-spanning empire, a force of Legiones Astartes is despatched to bring the planet to compliance. And when the Night Lords come, darkness falls. Piamen will never be the same....

A short trip into Curze's mindset.

A short story diving into the mindset of Konrad Curze, Primarch of the 8th Legion Astartes.

A very dark and immersive experience - Horus Heresy and 40k fans will enjoy this (newcomers will also find this interesting).

Chilling and dark as is appropriate

You want to see Curse and his sons methods of compliance and psychological terror in action? You want to look into a mind of madness. Here you go.

Know what you are getting into.

If you know anything of the Night Lords or Konrad Curze, then you know that they use any means to sow fear into compliance. If this is your first romp into Warhammer 30K, then you have been warned.

Performances are good, except for Curze who is voiced by either Jonathan Keeble or Toby Longworth. I just came off the Art of Provocation where (one of the two) played Lukas the Trickster and Curze sounds more like the Jackal Wolf than the Nighthunter.

My favorite Primarch and his legion in action.

I am awestruck by the quality of this audiobook. The effects and background music really set the mood and bring you into the story. Something sorely missed in regular audiobooks. I would love to hear more like this.

The Terror of Konrad Curze & The Night Lords

A story of darkness that captures the terror of Konrad Curze and his legion perfectly. This is a snapshot of the Night Lords carrying out their brutal policy of order through fear.
