Summary

Book four in the Gaunt's Ghosts series.

Sent to retrieve holy artefacts from a world lost to Chaos, Gaunt’s Ghosts find themselves beset by the enemy...but is Saint Sabbat herself helping them from beyond the grave?

Listen to it because: it's a new start for Gaunt's Ghosts. With a whole load of new troopers in the regiment and a dangerous mission - a race against time to retrieve holy relics from a dying world - Gaunt and his men (and women now!) have their work cut out for them.

The story: in disgrace after a catastrophic war, Colonel-Commissar Ibram Gaunt and the Tanith First are sent to retrieve precious artefacts from a world lost to Chaos. With enemy all around them and time against them, Gaunt's Ghosts and their allies must prevent the holy relics of Saint Sabbat from falling into their foes' hands, and as mysterious events begin to occur, Gaunt begins to suspect that the Saint herself might be aiding them from beyond the grave.

Running time 10 hours 13 minutes.

Fan-Fethin’-Tastic!

You like The Ghosts right? You like Ghaunt right? You like crazy plots with twists and turns in the grim dark universe of Warhammer right? Then shut up and listen to this. You’ll like it too.

There are just too few GG audio's!! So good!

I dont think I would say "my favourite" but still an excellent story and as always a perfect perdormance from Mr.Longworth (Im not sure anyone else does the Ghosts the same justice!) Felt slightly like a rushed finale but on reflection, with all of the earlier detail heavy battles, the contrast worked. My only issue is I am ALWAYS left wanting more! Mr.Abnett, you are a legend and I thankyou, Gaunt has aided the war on my Black Dog one bolter round at a time )) And after Anarch.....?

Gaunt and Saint Sabbat!

Whilst I have enjoyed listening the Gaunts Ghosts books so far albeit they are not released in order so I am getting them in reverse order 🤔 for me this book is definitely one of the best released so far, a great story with action, angst, pathos and quite a bit of humour, as always outstanding narration

Toby Longworth and Dan Abnett never fails

Loved it. The tank battles in this varied up the usual vibe of the Tanith books, and also Gaunt himself gets further depth of character added.

Solid; though more than a few editing bugs.

Another solid entry into a good series. But around chapter six there are a number of editing problems. Lines being repeated / multiple takes being merged.

Great story...but..

Great story. Riveting!! Kept me wanting more. As usual, Toby Longworth's performance was flawless.
But the end...

The Imperial Truth

Brave are those that fight the Warp and the Heretic in the name of the Emperor.

Please, keep filling in the rest of the audiobooks for this great series.

Dan is a fantastic author, Toby is a great listen.

Toby Longworth Continues to Amaze!

Toby Longworth continues to amaze with his voices for each character! I feel submerged in the story.

Boring at first, then got really good

The story is slow but starts to snowball towards the end. I like the new characters and the backstory that explains Gaunt’s motivations.
