Summary

Book four in the Gaunt's Ghosts series.

Sent to retrieve holy artefacts from a world lost to Chaos, Gaunt’s Ghosts find themselves beset by the enemy...but is Saint Sabbat herself helping them from beyond the grave?

Listen to it because: it's a new start for Gaunt's Ghosts. With a whole load of new troopers in the regiment and a dangerous mission - a race against time to retrieve holy relics from a dying world - Gaunt and his men (and women now!) have their work cut out for them.

The story: in disgrace after a catastrophic war, Colonel-Commissar Ibram Gaunt and the Tanith First are sent to retrieve precious artefacts from a world lost to Chaos. With enemy all around them and time against them, Gaunt's Ghosts and their allies must prevent the holy relics of Saint Sabbat from falling into their foes' hands, and as mysterious events begin to occur, Gaunt begins to suspect that the Saint herself might be aiding them from beyond the grave.

Running time 10 hours 13 minutes.

Fan-Fethin’-Tastic!

You like The Ghosts right? You like Ghaunt right? You like crazy plots with twists and turns in the grim dark universe of Warhammer right? Then shut up and listen to this. You’ll like it too.

There are just too few GG audio's!! So good!

I dont think I would say "my favourite" but still an excellent story and as always a perfect perdormance from Mr.Longworth (Im not sure anyone else does the Ghosts the same justice!) Felt slightly like a rushed finale but on reflection, with all of the earlier detail heavy battles, the contrast worked. My only issue is I am ALWAYS left wanting more! Mr.Abnett, you are a legend and I thankyou, Gaunt has aided the war on my Black Dog one bolter round at a time )) And after Anarch.....?

Gaunt and Saint Sabbat!

Whilst I have enjoyed listening the Gaunts Ghosts books so far albeit they are not released in order so I am getting them in reverse order 🤔 for me this book is definitely one of the best released so far, a great story with action, angst, pathos and quite a bit of humour, as always outstanding narration

keep 'em coming!

Abnett hits it out the park as usual, was nice to go back to one of the less popular entries in the gaunts ghosts series and look at it through renewed eyes, went up massively in my estimation and develops the characters from the war in vervunhive naturally.

solid start to the 2nd omnibus

The series picks up well from the excellent end of the initial "Founding" trilogy with a real introduction to the sabbatine cult and the "Saint" collection of the novels. enjoyed the performance although longworth seemed to alter the Gaunt voice which seems weird considering it's been consistent in earlier and much later books.

Please record more of these Black Library

Would make a fantastic mini-series. A great way for people to start out in the 40k universe.

Great story...but..

Great story. Riveting!! Kept me wanting more. As usual, Toby Longworth's performance was flawless. But the end...

The Imperial Truth

Brave are those that fight the Warp and the Heretic in the name of the Emperor. Please, keep filling in the rest of the audiobooks for this great series. Dan is a fantastic author, Toby is a great listen.

Brought to life

I don't know how else to put it. This book, the whole damn series, is being brought to life by Toby Longworth. I have read this book multiple times, but the emotions and the feelings that are portrayed....... how do I even begin to explain it. The reading was done so amazing, so smoothly, you feel like you are there with the Ghosts. The emotions I felt listening to this, they were not there when I read the book. They were, overwhelming? Only in a good way though. I can't wait to see what will be brought next.

For Tanith! For Vervenhive! For Gaunt!

Another wonderful story, penned masterfully by Abnett and delivered beautifully by Longworth. Its like these two were meant to work together. one to create, one to perform.
