Publisher's Summary

The Custodian Guard have stood watch over the Emperor's Palace on Terra since the foundation of the Imperium. Charged with protecting the Master of Mankind from all threats, within and without, their fearsome resolve is renowned throughout the galaxy, and their golden armour is the last thing that a would-be assassin or saboteur will ever see.

Alongside the Null-maidens of the Sisters of Silence, who are anathema to psykers and sorcerers alike, there is no threat to the Golden Throne that they alone cannot vanquish...until now.

    "Enthralling"

    I was hooked from start to end with everything being told. The inclusion of multiple points of view with different voice actors adding an even further depth to each characters views was a very nice touch.

    "Outsanding"

    I honestly cannot recommend it enough, The voice actors are superb, the dialogue and depictions are incredible and easily one of my favourites, Each chapter it swaps to the perspective of another which is brilliant to convey the characters better but can sometimes be jarring with the swaps

    "really good SciFi"

    worth a listening to by 40k players and SciFi fans alike. Some never before explored areas of Imperial terra and the labarynthine workings of it's politics, off set by battles of 10ft super-men.

    "Hooked from start to finish"

    The performance of the narrators perfectly capture the different perspectives of the three main protagonists and brings this excellent story to life.

    Another great warhammer novel by Chris wraith that links up nicely with the master of mankind and the story arch of Robert guiliman returning to terra.

    If I could I would have stood up and given Chris Wraight and the narrators a standing ovation. Absolutely brilliant in all fronts. I'm starting it ver immediately and I'm sure I'll pick up tons of things I missed.

    Loved this story, it has a good cross between narrative and bolter open. I would suggest this to anyone wanting to know more of how Custodes and Null Maidens think.

    Story
    "Might be confusing for folks new to W40k lore"

    As for the performance and the story it is a lot of fun with intrigue and epic battles. What I think might be confusing is the significance of events in the story that have been building for years in the lore. I'd compare it to watching the season finale of a long and complex series. Why is this reveal or that turn of events blowing people's minds in the story? Not saying new folks should not listen or wouldn't enjoy it but I think it would be more enjoyable to check out some other stories earlier like the Eisenhorn series to help build up and make the context of this story a little more satisfying. For long-term fans of the lore this is pretty freaking epic IMO.

    "Great to see Black Library on audible!"

    I liked the story more than I expected (didn’t know what to expect though). Chris Wraight is one of my favorite BL authors- & I think his writing helped carry the book. The characters have depth to them, but the action sequences are well written & not confusing.

    I know a fair amount of the story that led up to this setting- so I can’t recommend just blindly diving in.

    Extremely high quality reading with superb narrators. A turning point for a saga over a hundred books in the making. The mythos of the Warhammer 40.000 universe is finally moving forward.

    "Great narration makes a good book great"

    Books like these are why I'm so glad the Black Library books have finally come to Audible.

    The story itself explores some of the lesser known parts of 40k lore - notably the Adeptus Custodes. The first 2/3rds of the book is an enjoyable slow burn bouncing between the points of view of the three main characters. While the last part of the story is by no means bad, it does feel somewhat rushed with the ending a bit underwhelming.

    The narration, however, is superb. The three voice actors representing the main characters fit their roles perfectly and breathed real life into the words and world. Hopefully GW uses these actors and this format for more audio books in the future.

    For fans of 40k and audiobooks...this one is a no-brainer.
