Summary

The Night Lords are among the most feared Chaos Space Marines in the universe. They prey on their victims from the shadows, stalking the faithful of the False Imperium in their ultimate quest to destroy the Emperor.

The warband of the Exalted, travelling aboard The Covenant of Blood, are recovering from the events at Crythe Primus. But their dark crusade against the loyal Imperial forces continues, and they will leave a trail of blood and terror behind them as they seek the truth behind the death of their primarch, the feared Night Haunter.

Fantastic 40K short

For only just over an hour, this book gives you just enough of each character from the Night Lords series and is a fantastic filler story between Soul Hunter and Blood Reaver. Each performance is stellar and while some of the marines lack the hiss in their voices from the main books, I was enthralled from beginning to end. Hearing all that on top of a full soundtrack and very well placed sound effects have me giving this a strong reccomend to anyone looking for more Night Lords especially as a huge fan of the main Dembski-Bowden series.

Ave Dominus Nox!

Hail the Lord of the Night! By which I of course mean Aaron Dembski Bowden. Excellent story, well read and with moments of spine tingling horror.

A joy to return to First Claw

I've loved all these books, so I delighted at the discovery of a new one. A great short play. More please!

Just amazing

Aaron Dembski-Bowden did it again. An amazing 'book' with some epic moments.
A wonderful addition to the Night Lords trilogy.

Nice look into the Night Lords legion.

Well done audio drama that offers a glimpse into the Night Lords. Voice acting was good.

Good story, wrong voice acting

It felt wrong having different voice actors all of a sudden. Instead of the rough accented English in book one they're all speaking British-English? Doesn't do it for me.

Good for being cheap

While I miss the original Russian slavic ascents of the series, it was real nice to hear that Vox distortion. Worth the $6

The art of Night Lords.

This was like a bath of warm water after days of sweating and struggling. It is just refreshing.

Awesome!

Great story with good acting and sound effects. Although it's more like an hour long audio drama, the story is by far one of the most well written and enrapturing tales I've heard from the 40k universe in a while.

good book but too short

I really enjoyed this book, but I found it to be too short. perhaps I am just too used to other 40k books that i have read or listened to. it was worth my time to have a listen though.
