Summary

Book 8 in the Gaunt's Ghosts series.

Infilitrating enemy-held Gereon, Gaunt's Ghosts must deal with daemonic killers, reluctant allies and the taint of Chaos itself. Their mission: to find and stop a traitor general. 

Listen to it because:

Gaunt's Ghosts, as a handful of troopers - including Gaunt himself - embark on a deadly mission into the heart of enemy space...a mission that Gaunt has personal reasons for wanting to finish. It's a deadly journey into the darkness of Chaos that will change the Tanith forever.

The story:

An Imperial general has defected to the enemy, and the secrets he carries could spell the end of the Sabbat Worlds Crusade. Colonel-Commissar Gaunt and a small team from the Tanith First must infiltrate an enemy-held world and gain the trust of the local underground, all the while trying desperately to avoid the ever-present taint of Chaos. Their mission: to stop the traitor general from revealing his secrets - by any means necessary.

Written by Dan Abnett. Narrated by Toby Longworth.

one downside

the only downside about the gaunts ghosts audiobooks is having to wait for the next one to release, I hope they re record the later books with toby longworth again to keep the same feel.

A Gereon 12 / 10!

A fantastic addition to the Gaunt's Ghosts storyline, this book is grounded, well-paced and introduces a fresh form of warfare in constrast to previous books. The small character count makes the novel easy to follow and tensions are higher than ever with chaos once more threatening the lives of our Tanith First and Only. Toby Longworth provides an expected excellent performance for an expectedly excellent author in Dan Abnett.

One of the best gaunt ghosts story’s

Iv read all the of books so far and for me it’s one of the best ones.

Take a handful of the tanith, throw them on a chaos infested world with a secret mission. What’s not to like…

Like because of the smaller squad you really get to know them and the chaos hosts.
Change from the normal all out war.
Introduction of new characters.
Toby longworth narrating is on point as always.

Another absolute cracker from Dan Abnett

What more is there to say? Toby Longworth once again smashes the narration like the legend he is. I’m bracing myself for the book he isn’t narrating. I fear anyone else won’t do as good a job as Toby.

I love Dans writing. He makes sci fi warfighting relatable to anyone who has seen epics like Saving Private Ryan and Blackhawk Down; gritty, terrifying and grim, where any lesser author could have made it terribly cheesy.

I’m off to download the next novel in this series. That should tell you all you need to know.

Abnett on form

one of my favourite entries in the Gaunt's Ghosts series, great look into what happens on a chaos conquered world long after the invasion and what happens to the populace of said world.
