Summary

A Warhammer 40,000 anthology

Take your first steps into the adrenaline-fuelled fiction of the 41st millennium with a thrilling collection of tales, including an action-packed novella pitting noble Ultramarines against sinister necrons. 

Whether you're dipping a toe into the galaxy of Warhammer 40,000 or are a hardened veteran of the universe, this anthology is the perfect way to discover the many factions of the games in action-packed tales.

Within this book you will find Nexus, a fantastic new novella by Thomas Parrott.

In a galaxy beset by war, where the Adeptus Astartes are all that stand against annihilation, the Ultramarines are exemplar - noble, honourable and oathbound to the protection of mankind. Where the predations of the alien, the witch and the heretic threaten the Imperium, the Angels of Death fight to oppose them.

Brother-Sergeant Allectius wages a brutal war of attrition against a seemingly endless xenos foe. But when the vile necrons unleash a mysterious pall over him and the people he protects, Allectius must take his fight beyond the walls...for more than just victory, now their very survival is at stake.

Also included in this book is a host of awesome short stories to give you a flavour of the many warring armies that exist within the worlds of Warhammer 40,000.

Narrated by Andrew Wincott, Richard Reed, Emma Gregory, John Banks and Toby Longworth. Running time is 18 hours and 49 minutes.

A great anthology

It is often a case of good story and mediocre story when it comes to short story collections I have all the BL short stories (sad I know) and have to say this was a really enjoyable listen, various narrators brought their inimitable style (John Banks, Andrew Wincott) and I completely immersed myself in the grim dark future

Worth listening to but not for the nexus

The main story in the audio book sadly feels like nothing but advertisement for the new range of necron/primaris models, with the exception of a side story about a serf. However most of the other stories do not suffer from this with the standout being “war in the museum” a short story about trayzn the infinite set after the event of “the infinite and the divine” worth getting purely for this story with the rest being merely gravy.

Good stories

Pity about the narrative. Mono tome and it as though the story is being read to an infant. Lately I’ve not brought books from war hammer 40,000 because of the poor narrative. The stories are good but could of been awesome.

The Good the bad and the long winded narrator

they're all good books with some up and down but the narrator just took too long to say words in some of the books

Standalone teasers for newer books

A bit more rewarding than Crusade+Others for the read 40k scholar, but some stories are bland for the same reasons. Some stories are outright flat. Great content for the price!
