Summary

For Ianthe, war is all too familiar. A former soldier in the Astra Militarum, she now serves Inquisitor Covenant as an agent of the Throne. Her first mission sees her investigating a cult called the Children of Eternity. Falling foul of the local Enforcers, Ianthe soon learns that war in the shadows is seldom straightforward and that the local, angry law-keepers are the least of her troubles.

Gripping

Standard mix of great story, action, voice acting and atmosphere that you would expect. I only wish it had been longer, though there is another two in the series. Still it would've been nice to hear more.

Anyway. Great stuff

Fun, but disjointed.

I liked this. Performances were good and the story is fun with both suspense and action. All three protagonists are unique and complement each other. The ending is the letdown as after a big buildup it ended without much depth or emotional resonance. What I did not like was the scenes of the character Ioanthe monologuing. It interrupts the story and adds little to it. I expected it to come together and give big meaning to the overall story. but fails. It makes the production disjointed. I will listen to the next in the series and hope the structure of the writing improves because I like the characterisation.

Maybe the best 40k radio drama!

Like Blade Runner meets Spec Ops in 40k. Good acting, appropriately pulpy noir writing, fun audio design!

Absolutely amazing.

I have always had a dislike of the inquisition but this kind of make me like them a little at least the agents of the throne part. I still hate inqusitors in general.
