Description

A Warhammer 40,000 novel

Saint Celestine is one of the greatest heroes of the Dark Imperium, an immortal warrior who returns time and again, even when struck down by a foe, like the Emperor's avenging angel. But what happens when she dies and comes back? Prepare to find out.

Listen to it because
Andy Clark lays bare one of the greatest mysteries of Warhammer 40,000: the trials Saint Celestine must undergo in order to return from death....

The story
With her mighty wings spread wide and Ardent Blade aflame, Saint Celestine is the living embodiment of the God-Emperor’s wrath. Her halo blazes like a star upon the smog-wreathed, blood-soaked battlefields of the 41st Millennium; its holy light leading the faithful to victory time and time again. As heretics and daemons tear at her flesh, she calls down fires of retribution from on high to smite the wicked and unrighteous. 

If she is to fall in battle, none should mourn as she is Celestine, the Living Saint, and death is her duty. Though it comes at a great cost. For each time she is slain, Saint Celestine finds herself trapped in a terrible realm of suffering and torment. There her faith in the God-Emperor will be put to the test so she may prove herself worthy of life once more.

One of the Best 40K Stories I've Ever Listened To

I've been listening to a lot of 40k stories on Audible over the last couple years. "Celestine" is easily 8ne of the best. Andy Clark's take on Saint Celestine's presence on and off the battlefield is nearly perfect, and his portrayal of what she goes through between each "rebirth" is quite interesting. Emma Gregory's narration is also next to sublime. Her portrayal of the Living Saint was already perfect in the audio drama "Our Martyred Lady", and she only continues it here alongside additional supporting characters, all wonderfully voiced by her.
If you enjoy the traditional, dirty, "down in the battlefield" portrayal of Warhammer 40k, mixed with some more ethereal/dream-like segmenta, I cannot reccomend this audiobook enough. If it wasn't for work, I could have easily sat down for 7+ hours and listened to the entire book from start to finish.

It was moving.

It was a great work of literature. this was the first time a book brought me to tears, I do not know what it was but I became aware that tears started flowing down my face, after an hour listening to the audio book. Great writing and a stunning performance by Emma Gregory.
