Description

Book 3 in the Gaunt's Ghosts series.

On the shattered world of Verghast, Gaunt and his Ghosts find themselves embroiled within an ancient and deadly civil war as a mighty hive-city is besieged by an unrelenting foe.  

Listen to it because: The return of a classic Gaunt's Ghosts novel! The Tanith First deploy to Verghast to help break the Chaos siege of Vervunhive. Tanks clash with daemon engines, Imperial Guardsmen make brave last stands and Colonel-Commissar Gaunt steps up and takes control of the war effort, showing for the first time the command abilities that will go on to make him a legend.  

The story: On the world of Verghast, a grinding war between two hive cities - one loyal to the Imperium, the other fallen to the worship of the Dark Gods - is bolstered by the forces of the Astra Militarum, spearheaded by the Colonel-Commissar Gaunt and the Tanith First and Only. But bitter rivalries and treachery threaten to derail the defence of Vervunhive, and it falls to Gaunt to take command of the Imperial forces and forge victory from an almost certain defeat.  

Written by Dan Abnett.

Loved it!

Please release the audio books for the rest of this series

Fantastic story, great characters and superb delivery. It’s like Band of Brothers in 40k

Gaunt gets to Fight Back - Finally!

Excellent sense of tension and release throughout the first and second acts. So good in fact that you feel like you need a cigarette when an antagonist finally receives their comeuppance. Third act leaned on cinematic bombast, but lacked tension because the final obstacle appeared so late into the story that it didn't get the attention it deserved, devolving into a 'big bad guy' appearing from out of nowhere. The author does a good job of introducing many characters and is fully prepared to kill any and all of them in brutally quick, or miserably slow ways. It's never 100% assured that your favorites will make it out alive. Alas, with the audio format, some character names can sound very similar and it makes it difficult to determine who has survived and who hasn't. The narrator does a good job of making character's distinct by implementing different accents and tonal changes to define who is speaking. Every so often there is a stumble and an affect is lost or they respond as the wrong character. Given the mass of characters, this can make some scenes confusing.

Perfect entry to the series

Beautifully written and equally masterfully voiced. Dan's craft in this one is evident, many layers of story telling, but without losing focus and Toby's vocals are perfect in tone and variance.

One of my favourites brought to life!

Necropolis is one of my favourite Dan Abnett novels, and he's one of my favourite sci-fi authors. I was super excited to see it made into an audiobook, and Toby Longworth's presentation is top notch! I will definitely listen to this many more times, and heartily recommend it for anyone who is a fan of 40K, the Imperial Guard, or even if you're new to the Warhammer universe as a great sci-fi war novel with characters you will fall in love with! Can't say enough good things about this audiobook! Five stars is not enough!

another great book in the gaunts ghosts series

I have zero complaints about this book whatsoever. lots of effort put into a slow and stemless character development for sure.

Simply awesome!

Dan Abnett's Gaunt's Ghosts series is such a joy both to binge read and listen. Here's hoping they would release the other books soon.

You line them up and I’ll buy them up!

There is no better series to start with for Warhammer 40k than the Gaunt series. Necropolis is a wonderful addition to it. I can’t wait for book 4!

The Best Yet

This is some of the best Warhammer fiction I've ever read. As usual, the team of Abnett and Longworth cannot be beat.

If you've been looking for a story about the down and dirty work the Guard gets up to, there's none better!

Great adventure. Great narrator!

Wow! Give these audiobooks a shot! The narrator does a great job and I’ve never wanted to start an imperial guard army in 40K more so than after these books!

Dark, opressive, a blast to listen to.

Really gives you a feel for what war in the 40k universe is truly like. Gaunt is quickly becoming a personal favorite of mine, and stories like this just solidify that opinion

I could not have asked for a better reader then Toby Longworth. My favorite Warhammer series to read/listen to and its being done amazingly. Keep up the amazing work!
