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.

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.

Ave Dominus Nox! Brilliant book, well read.

Brilliant book, well read, makes you see it from the other point of view. Can't wait for Blood Reaver and Void Stalker.

One of the best 40k books

The night Lords books are some of the best 40k books ever written. It's about time the got the audible treatment. ADB never disappoints.

Ok performance, great story.

The performance was something... different. Not at all what I expected going into this. I would not say its bad but the range of characters voices was a tad limited. Not so easy to follow who is who. The tempo was also slower than what I am used to from other 40k books. The story is great though. One of the better non heresy books.

great book shame about the acting

Love this book must of read it 6 times this year alone. First claw are great but the voice acting leaves a lot to be desired. Septimus is not a bumbling idiot by any means it was really disappointing to hear him portrayed as one when he’s a smart individual. If they had used a better budget like in throne of lies this would of been amazing. The story itself is not in question here it’s just the narrators performance

Great story, absolutely awful narrator ruins it

As usual from Aaron Dembski-Bowden the story is good, nice to hear some lore and information on another faction than the imperials, the narrators really does ruin it, his voice makes me want to fall asleep, even in well written action scenes his voice is flat, such a shame.

Gripping tale of war and betrayals in 40k

Worth a listen to, with decent performances and a good story. Makes me want a night lord army.

The best 40K novelist shows us life in the dark.

ADB and the most talented audio book narrator shows us life and death from the perspective of the Night Lords after the assassination of their Primarch. A captivating read with tons of lore, new and old, packed in.

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.

This is an amazing story.

I read this book a long time ago. This audiobook was amazing. Plus listening to the primarch book before listening to this one felt like a prequel and really set the stage.
