Summary

Once a loyal son of the Emperor's Children, Fabius Bile now loathes those he once called brother. But when a former comrade requests his aid on a mission he cannot refuse, Bile is drawn once more into the sinister machinations of his former Legion.

Now, accompanied by new allies and old enemies alike, Fabius Bile must travel deep into the wilds of the Eastern Fringe, in search of a world unlike any other. A world which might hold the key to his very survival. A world called Solemnace....

Great performance good story

it was a good story the only reason it got less than 5 stars is because i wanted it to end differently.

Josh Reynolds at his best

An awesome story with a tragic end. Josh Reynolds is one of my favourite Black Library authors but unfortunately he seems to be very underrated.
This book along with the first are well written and the character of Fabius has gone from being a mad scientist doing crazy experiments because it amused him to someone who is actually fighting to save humanity in his clinical way.
Easily as good as the Black Legion series by Aaron Dembski Bowden but it doesn't get the recognition it deserves.
John Banks was a very good narrator. Some voices were better than others but overall I thought he was brilliant.

He is Bile...in name and character...Awesome book

Story wise the book is amazing. The narrations are flawless as well. Makes you giggle when you think how his conversation with 41k Robute would look like. I'm am not a fan of chaos. Truly not. But I will always make an exception Fabius"Waste not" Bile :)

Great story great character

The portrayal if Fabius is excellent, monstorous, humane, humours and remorseful. A wonderful tale that keeps the listener enthralled throughout.

Science fantasy and intrigue

If you could sum up Fabius Bile: Clonelord in three words, what would they be?

Illuminating, entertaining, visual

What did you like best about this story?

The exploration of Fabius biles motivations and beliefs. Great world building particularly in the eye of terror.

What does John Banks bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

John banks delivery helps with the pacing and characterization.

Fantastic book into one of the coolest characters in the 40K universe

Really enjoyed this book. Have a hard copy but being able to listen to it was a nice change of pace. Was done really well. Enjoyed hearing the various characters come to life and really enjoyed hearing some of the thoughts and background of the various characters as well. Well worth reading it listening to.

Terrific continuation of the Bile series

Great sequel to Primogenitor arguably better than the original. A much more insightful look into the Emperor's Children

Fabius Bile is OP

Primogenitor, Clonelord, and Pater Mutatis.

Only Fabius Bile approaches the emperor with his knowledge of the sciences and the true nature of humanity. Undying, he guides his gene hounds-- his new men into the future.

Like the Phoenix, mankind will be reborn from fire and Fabius Bile will work until all his work is finished.

Can’t wait for the (hopefully) third!!

Enjoyed the second book in the series much more than the first and that’s saying something. Was pleasantly surprised with the pacing of this novel and the further exploration of Fabius’ mind.

fabulous bill strikes again!

Bile is one of my favorite anti-heros. He is such a coniving devious bastard who honestly seems to have humanities best interests in mind.
