Summary

A Warhammer Horror novel.

Take a nightmare journey into a plague-wracked city where monsters stalk the streets and nothing can be trusted...including the memories of the protagonist.

Morgravia Sanctus is being hunted; why or by whom she doesn't know. Something terrible has happened to her, a profound trauma that has left behind ‘red dreams’ and a physical agony that can strike at any moment. Her life in danger and her memory fragmented, she arrives in the low-hive of Blackgheist to escape her pursuers and search for ‘the Broker’ – a trafficker in memories and psychic mind manipulation. Soon after, a plague sweeps the city, turning its citizens into blood-hungry monsters. Order collapses, death and slaughter are rampant. Caught up in the carnage, Morgravia must flee once more. But as the ravening spreads, is there any hope of stopping this contagion?

A good listen

I pre-ordered the book and was super excited to jump in on launch day. I found myself at chapter 5 in no time but ended up dropping it for reasons I can not remember.

I then tried to come back to it twice failing to do so, this week I started from the start again and I am happy I did, they are some strange stuff such as the duration of the entire event, which makes it seem like an established cult sprung up overnight, but, excepting this is a Warhammer book and is not trying to be the best book ever written it was really enjoyable, some characters land some don't but what I am loving about the horror series is the descriptions of detail when it comes to the macabre stuff because for me Warhammer is meant to be Grim Dark.

Would recommend if you are looking for an interesting darker inquisitor story

Occasionally brilliant

An enjoyable little story that burns brightly initially before eventually reverting to type and fading away. This is a horror story and it leaves you with that typical hollowed out feeling at the end but occasionally it transcends into good thriller territory and it's worth a listen for those parts alone.

The Walking Dead set in a Hive City. What more could you want from Warhammer horror?

Sweet Jesus, what a shitty book

First of all, I'm grateful about Audible's credits that had saved me some money from the purchasing of this awful book.
The story is unoriginal and the two POVs feel very disjointed.
Also, the biggest flaw of this novel is that you don't feel anything for any of the characters, so every death that occurs make you feel like "Meh! Whatever..."
The narrator is very good, tho.

Inquisition and dark mechanicum

A great story that moves along very nicely with horror elements and also using the lore of the 30k/40k universe well, the narrator was good but her constant staccato style was jarring and to be honest I almost have up once or twice, I stayed the course and it was worth it

Purple Prose, lazy plot, good characters, great narrator

Sepulturum has some excellent action and the characters are generally likable. The narration and performance is excellent and each character is given their own feel by the reader. The action flows nicely at times but can get bogged down in the verbose description and paid-by-the-word feel. Sometimes the plot progression will miss a beat and you might become disinterested in the story. Beamish’s reading will pull you back in however.

Mild Spoilers:
The characters are likable, until they reveal their “secret” motivations and kill each other or die for no reason other than to kill a plot point. Because of this, it is difficult to appreciate the story and the relationships of the people in it. Sometimes the characters feel real, and you start to root for them, then the “plot” resumes and they feel like wooden set pieces again.

The ending is one of those “so it didn’t matter anyway,” kinds and instead of leaving you with questions about what might happen next you will probably be a little annoyed.

For the 40k fan:
You won’t learn much about the wider universe of 40k, and the story feels like it could be set in any other dystopian sci-fi future. Even when the Dark Mechanicum or the Adepta Sororitas make an appearance it doesn’t feel like the 40k versions.

What was best: the scenes of zombies devouring people.

Overall, I look forward to Nick Kyme’s next story, which will hopefully be unconstrained by adhered g to a boilerplate plot.

Generic zombies in 40 k skin

Long winded start, decent ending, a few times I debating if it was worth finishing.

Solid horror story

Great as a zombie novel. I’ll admit though, I was a little confused as to how long the period of time was from the outbreak to beginning to its end. I thought it was a couple of days, but a hardcore cult had developed, no way that happened in 2 days. Also, the main plot point about the missing memories seemed bolted on to an otherwise great read.
