Summary

The Night Lords - traitors and killers who use fear as a weapon - face threats from within and without as they struggle to rebuild their Legion and continue to fight the Long War.  

Listen to it because:

It's an assured and confident second novel from Aaron Dembski-Bowden that kicks off one of the most acclaimed and beloved series in Black Library history - and it's a chance to see the Long War from the Night Lords' perspective!  

The story:

The Night Lords were once among the most potent forces of the Imperium, Space Marines who used fear itself as their weapon. Now, cast adrift from the Emperor's light and hunted as heretics after their monstrous betrayal, the Night Lords clad themselves in symbols of death and fight the Long War, bringing pain and terror to all who worship the corpse-god of Terra. 

A summons from Warmaster Abaddon sends these rebels on a dangerous journey that leads inexorably to a conflict with the Emperor's chosen warriors, the Blood Angels.  

Written by Aaron Dembski-Bowden. Running time 13 hours and 5 minutes. Narrated by Andrew Wincott.

Ave Dominus Nox

ADB (the author) has breathed life into The Nightlords! A Legion often overlooked. He has made their world interesting and full of intrigue as you peer through the red eye lenses of the 8th, usually the protagonist.

The Audible narrator has done a fantastic job and has really done this book Justice!

I cannot wait for the next Two books in the series!

buy it, enjoy it & Ave Dominus Nox

A classic Aaron Dembski-Bowden story, now in audio

One of my favourite Black Library novels finally comes to audio. Narrator captures the intensity, complexity and darkness of the Night Lords perfectly.

Loved it

Aaron Dembski-Bowden has become one of my favourite authors in recent years. To many writers spend too much time describing a rock a character walks past because they lack the ability to make a story flow. Aaron has no such problem. All of the books of his I have read or listened too had just the right amount of detail and the right amount of action and character building in them to make his books stand out from the crowd.

Soul Hunter is no exception, i consider this book to be one of his best works, out of all the ones I have heard so far. A stunning page turner for those who are reading it.

And unlike certain other popular GW Authors, his book titles tend to be accurate too and dont involve filing clerks visiting prospero.

Definitely worth a buy.

Classic night lords

this book gives a alternative view on chaos space marines and actually makes you like abd feel for them, making them feel like people and not just some big bad.

this made me start collecting chaos and paint them night lord colours when traditionally I'm a xeno player.

Excellent all around

Good compelling story that shows a really good insiders look into the nightlords.

Voice acting was dark and somber with excellent voices for both mortal and astarte characters.

Would definitely recommend if you’re like me. Interested in warhammer 40k books but don’t have much precious knowledge of the lore.

ADB is a Legend and the Night Lord's are epic

Liste ING to this book and other ADB Night Lord's books from the HH series inspired me so much to the point that I have built my own Night Lord's Warband for the table top as well as crafting my own lore for my warband. ADB makes the Night Lord's more than just a bunch of edge lord's and you really see the underside of the legion and what it has become since the days of the great heresy. Can definitely recommend of you are up for a great read about heretics!

excellent

I struggled to get into this at first as I have only listened to the first 3 books of the Horus heresy. this was quite different ,set many years later and a lot darker. I really got into the storyline and characters though .the narrator was great . very much recommend . I will definitely be getting the next story.⁴

Damn it

Now I have to build an VIII Legion army, too. I'm already balls deep in half converted Word Bearers from listening to The First Heretic. ADB is trying to kill my wallet.

Beware this audiobook contains heresy

It was an insightful audiobook as I have never really read or listened to any of the traitor legion novels. I enjoyed that it has a lot of backstory and provides information about how the night lords came to be what they are in the 42nd millennium. The narrator also did a great job and overall I’d recommend it to someone like myself that doesn’t know much of the traitor legions.

A great listen

I read the original book several years ago and it was absolutely wonderful. The concepts of the characters very experience of woe, corruption, honor, and comradery kept me with the book all the way through. This performance is wonderful for my tastes. It's very much in the throat for the majority of the time which brings a nice sense of expressed dread from the tonation which fits with the general chapter theme.

Not Just A Great 40k Novel

This isn't just the best 40k series I've read. This is the best book series I've ever read. That's right "read". This will be the first audio book I've purchased of a real life book I already own. That's how good it is.

Hands down the best sympathetic depiction of villains I've ever read. This is the first of three, and I really hope they bring the other two out as well. I can't say enough good about it. Get it if you have any interest at all.
