Summary

In the grim nightmare future of the 41st millennium, the witch-hunting zealots of the the Sisters of Battle stand between humanity and damnation. From the elite Seraphim warriors to the berserk Sisters Repentia, they are the strong arm of the Ecclesiarchy and the brutal hammer of witches. 

When dangerous psychic heretic Torris Vaun escapes from her custody, Seraphim Miriya is disgraced in the eyes of her fellow sisters and superiors. Following Vaun's trail to the planet Neva, Miriya takes her sisters in pursuit and, along with Hospitalier Sister Verity, starts her investigations. 

When they uncover a terrifying plot that could threaten the future of the Imperium, is Miriya's and Verity's faith strong enough for them to triumph?

Excellent

Faith and Fire is a AudioBook I have heard a huge amount about and, in all honesty, is one of the reasons I decided to take up a subscription: boy (or Sister) does it not disappoint. The action is fantastic, the characters awesome, the voice work excellent.

I thoroughly enjoyed this and was in a position where I was looking forward to coming home from work to listen to some more! Would highly recommend for a 40k Fan or Sci-Fi fan in general.

Emma Gregory elevates an average story

Without Emma's superb performance this would have been a fairly bland story as the plot was telegraphed ahead throughout.

not bad

This isn't a bad story and my first in the sister's of battle. The plot is ok but fairly predictable. The reader is new to me and she does a good job however I didn't find her as compelling as others.

An excellent immersion

A very enjoyable story. The quality of the voice actor is once again, outstanding. The story itself is well paced and gives a lot of information about the Sisters of Battle. The characters are well developed and the fanaticism of the Sisters is sometimes alarming but I guess every faction in 40K is slightly crazy. Will definitely check out the other Sisters books after this. Miriya is an awesome character and I hope we get more about her in the future.

A great listen, but only single voice actor.

Enjoyed the story. Shame it was a single voice actor for all characters a nice look in the life of the Sisters of battle and the Imperial Church.

My 1st Sisters of Battle book

it was a really good listen, plot twists I've come to expect from Black Library .
Emma Gregorys narration is by far the best and she is rapidly becoming one of my favourite narrators of any BL book
If your new to Sisters of Battle then this is a great way to get into the story lines

Another Great Black Library Book

A great look into the Adeptus Sororitas. This book delves into the fabric of what makes them the "Daughters of the Emperor".

Sustain

This is a story all about how a sister gets her life flipped upside down, this’ll just take a minute so sit right there how I tell about this sister and her faith in the Emperor.

Good story, a nice surprise twist and filled with action and suspenseful situations. A new appreciation for the sister saroritas.

Too much expectation?

I started this right after listening to "The Flight of The Eisenstein" also by James Swallow. I loved "The Flight of The Eisenstein" it was an excellent sequel to the first three Horus Heresy book. I also love the lore of the Battle Sisters. So I figured this would be an excellent story. It wasn't excellent, but it wasn't bad. It did suffer what I call the "Star Wars effect" in that something horrible happens, but if it didn't you wouldn't have a story. The only thing is that it happens quite often. I feel like this could have been, maybe two chapters shorter. There were parts that made me SMH. Like why. Why would they do that?

As for the narrator, she did a great job voice acting the story. Although I would highly recommend you listen with headphones as when the character whispers, so does she.

Overall, I would read another story about Battle Sisters, by James Swallow or narrated by Emma Gregory. Maybe this wasnt the right mix for me.

Duty and devotion.

One would expect a story featuring the Sisters of Battle to be filled with pious dialogue, devotion to duty, and an unrelenting drive to hunt down the Witch in the name of the Emperor.

They would be correct in that assumption.

Following a squad of Sisters, you journey to a world steeped in the faith of the Imperium; you will witness the Sisters in combat and in contemplation, and you will not be disappointed.

Sound like something you might enjoy? Good, then may the light of the Emperor guide you as you embark upon your journey.

The voice acting amazing. Story and pacing were average.

I really wanted to like this book and at some points I thought I did. However, the story was very lackluster with mediocre villains and a TONE of pacing problems, I struggled to finish the book halfway through barely finishing it today. There are interesting points here and there about lore, but nothing substantial. Even if you’re a die hard fan of Adaptive Sorortias books I still wouldn’t recommend Faith & Fire, the book isn’t bad it’s just painfully average, so I’m gonna have to say skipped this book and spend you money another Battle Sisters novel.

Meh, it was fine.

Meh, it was fine. It has a mystery but it was boring more often then not for me. I'm still glad I listened to it but there are way better books out there. Maybe the sequel in better. I'll find out.

Fantastic Narration and great writing

First audiobook, first Warhammer 40K book, was fantastic. Listened to it during my commutes to work. The narration was incredible.

Would recommend

Pleasantly surprised

I'm not going to lie when I say I'm a little biased based on the fact that I'm in love with this faction on the table top side of the fandom. As I almost binged the entire book in one sitting trying to paint a squad of retributors. I'm not an expert in 40K lore , however , I think there's enough action and mystery in this book to warrant a listen. The narrator kills her performance, supplying several voices for different characters, while the setting and characters (mainly moriah and her dynamic with variety) kept me interested throughout the entire adventure. The final battle between the Adepta Sororitas , and the big bad is a little short . But that's a small complaint for my overall satisfaction with the book. I hope this review helps you find your niche in the fandom, and remember, in the 41st millennium know only war 🤙🏼
