Summary

Get ready for Attack of the Necron, the first action-packed story in the Warhammer Adventures: Warped Galaxy series, brilliantly read by David Tennant, the tenth incarnation of television's Doctor Who.

The adventure begins....

Zelia Lor's life changes when alien Necrons attack her home planet and tear it apart! Separated from her mother, Zelia must escape the doomed world, her only hope a scrambled transmission promising safety at a mysterious place known only as the Emperor's Seat. She is joined by a ragtag group of survivors: the street-tough Talen, gadget-obsessed Martian boy Mekki and superintelligent alien-ape Fleapit.

Good but short

Quite good story, trying and succeeding in finding a balance between being faithful to the 40k vision and a story that is suitable for younger viewers.

Great story for the future warhammer fans

David Tennant does a wonderful job, and the story was just right at capturing the Warhammer universe without having to get overly graphic for little ones out there.

Great performance, but for a VERY young crowd

I love warhammer and I love David Tennant. I thought he did a great job portraying this adventure of young people being brought together to fight adversity. The story itself really wasn't that bad, it was just written for such a young crowd that it ends up lacking much imagination. Still, it is a great book for that young crowd. There is no swearing, sex/nudity, or even any blood. The violence that there is only leaves damaged robots or the occasional person turned to dust from some over powered weapon.

Great book, but if you aren't younger than a teenager, go into it realizing that it is written for very young kids. If you can accept that, it is completely worth the listen.

not bad

It was a nice surprise. I expected it to be bad, but it is actually pretty good. Manages to stay authentic 40k despite it being written for kids.

Excellent Middle Grade 40K

I was skeptical about GW and Black Library bringing the Grim Darkness of Warhammer to a young audience. Wow. Well done. I can’t wait to gift this to a bunch of young readers I know will love it.

Good but way too short

Good story but it's a waste of a credit for less than 3hours of story. it's GW chopping a normal length story into 10 pieces and charging full price for each like they do with game rules.
