Summary

As an agent of the Throne, former soldier Ianthe serves Inquisitor Covenant and faces some of the most dangerous and insidious threats the galaxy has to offer. 

On the hunt for the rogue psyker Silas Norn, Ianthe and her associates run afoul of the Imperial authorities and are imprisoned. 

Norn too is captured and incarcerated, but with the ability to manipulate the minds of his victims he is far from easy quarry. To stop him, Ianthe must not only find him; she must overcome the buried ghosts of her hidden past.

Disappointing overall

I bought this having heard the excellent "Blood and Lies," which was tight, gritty and serious.

While this production does have some genuinely exciting moments, the gritty tone has gone and, in places, seems to have switched black humour for "laughs." Clearly relationships have advanced in the intervening period but still.

There is at least one glaring plot hole and, unless the story of Silas Norn is continued elsewhere, the end makes no sense at all either.

I really want to like this but after 4 or 5 listens (I felt sure I was missing something) the story just doesn't hang together.

Beth Chalmers is outstanding

We pick up with the characters from the first audio drama and it does not disappoint, the cast does another amazing job in keeping the listener captivated and Beth Chalmers is as always outstanding.

Only criticism I have is that due to Beth's character being such the focal point of the story the others are pushed more into the background, can only hope we catch up with these agents of the throne in the future.

enjoyable like the last one!

personally I am really enjoying these audio dramas based on these characters and hope for more and maybe even models on this characters and the Inquisitor Covenant.
