Summary

Haunted by the ghosts of longdead foes and with his psychic powers blinded, Mephiston, chief librarian of the Blood Angels, travels to the warwracked world of Morsus, where death awaits.... 

Listen to it because

The Lord of Death returns in a novel that shows him pushed to his very limits and facing the doom that has chased him for centuries. 

The story

As the Great Rift tears the galaxy apart, portents and darkness beset Mephiston. At the time when he needs his psychic sight the most, the chief librarian's powers are rendered blind by some inexplicable force. Haunted by the ghosts of the damned, their purpose unclear, Mephiston takes his ship the Blood Oath and the Blood Angels in his charge to the world of Morsus, where he believes the source of his psychic blindness is to be found. But Morsus is embroiled in conflict too, a longstanding struggle between the Imperium and some of its most ancient foes called the Revenant Crusade.

Written by Darius Hinks. Read by Richard Reed.

The narrator is incredible

Richard Reed’s voice acting for this book took it up an entire few notches. I would highly recommend it.

Just okay not great

Not the most interesting of mephiston's adventures.
Let down by anti climatic ending.
Story had looked like it was set up for so much more.

Stick with the Story as plots change

It does seem to wane near the beginning but upto half way you get hooked. The Necron parts are very good and they do tie in well with the Angels.

I am so involved in this series of books that I have forgotten I didn’t like the narrator to start with! Now I think he is doing a magnificent job 😀

needed better editing

This is the second Maphiston novel by Darius Hinks. I enjoyed the first and the second, but there were issues.

This book needs better editing. Some parts drag on and on, painfully. The narrator generally does a good job, but there are occasions of wrong voice being attached to a character and the wrong term being employed in the story.

Because I don't have the print copy, I don't know if this is the fault of the editor or suthor.

The conclusion is fulfilling and worthwhile, big plus.

Another great Warhammer 40k book

Great book with a great narrator, but the only accent he does besides is own is Russian. So its a tad funny how several characters from different places all sound Russian, but other than that its a great listen.

Not bad, a bit frustrating

I really enjoyed the story, but found myself a bit annoyed when characters acted in a highly predictable manner. A lot of the internal conflict seemed two-dimensional. That said, I enjoyed the action and the book over all.

ALOT BETTER

I gave it a chance after the other Mephiston book was out right booring and a power fantasy that was not fun to listen to at all. Now this is the black libary author quality. I am looking forward to reading his book in the future.

I like the story it is alot more believable, the proformance is great the voice actor really give his best. The relationship between Mephiston and Rayzulus is also something like that they explore and could do more!
