I couldn't understand the audio.

Due to the sci-fi effects over production of this title, I could barely make out what the main characters were saying. It sounded like a load of drunken daleks in a lift. This is a production not a narration. I listen primarily whilst driving and couldn't make it out. Might be better through good quality headphones. Have read the book now and its a good story. Shame about the audio.

Well written, very well acted and produced.

This audio drama was very well done and stands up to others in its performances as well as the story.

Fantastic, Though Brief

I would honestly listen to these audio dramas in full length form. It’s a shame they are likely too expensive to produce!

Fantastic story set in pre-Imperial (!) space where the Eldar are just starting to come to the realization that they really can’t trust anything or anyone. I sincerely enjoy the way Gav Thorpe writes Eldrad. Really enjoyed giving this one a listen!

without a doubt this is the best of 40K audio

Asurmen is the most interesting of characters from the 40K universe, regal wise and deadly
