Description

Book 2 in the Watchers of the Throne series

A new day has dawned for the Imperium, but not everyone sees the light. The Custodian Guard and Sisters of Silence must battle not just Chaos, but those who do not share Regent Guilliman's vision....

Listen to it because:

See how enemies lurk everywhere in the Imperium - even on Terra itself - and discover how the Adeptus Custodes excel at rooting out the darkness that lurks on the Throneworld and bringing it to light.

The story:

As Guilliman, Regent of Terra, heads off to lead the Indomitus Crusade, he leaves behind a world still in turmoil, beset by cult activity. Stripped of its huge armies for the galactic offensive, recovery is precarious. The Custodians do what they can while keeping the Palace secure, and the Sisters of Silence rebuild their citadel on Luna. When the warship Phalanx returns, it seems that stability will at last be assured. However, as reconquest forces push out further into the slums, they come across signs that another mysterious foe is active. The truth dawns - not every enemy is corrupted by Chaos, for there are many on Terra who do not share Guilliman’s vision of a new order, and the prospect of a Terran civil war looms...

Written by Chris Wraight

Running time 11 hours 52 minutes. Performed by John Banks, Emma Gregory and Penelope Rawlins.

good follow up

i have the same mind as i did listening the previous entry. i love the dynamic of the sisters and custodes. i think this book would be awsome to follow with the plague war series.

Great story

The use of three different voice actors makes the story far more real and creates a greater sense of the different characters. It has a good amount of action but the story and the intrigue are the major attractions for this book.

Enjoyed the political aspects

This was a particularly satisfying listen, just like its predecessor, for the insight into political aspects that were a little more nuanced than most. The three character rotation throughout the series has been enjoyable because all of the characters are believable within their capacities to act (or not). This book particularly had a satisfying denouement and the final sentence was wonderful.

fairly flat story but still entertaining.

pretty good book, slow to get going but was worth the listen, if you're a fan of the characters you should enjoy this book.

I can't recommend this audiobook enough!

It was well written, narrated fantastically and kept me drawn in for the whole story. Definitely one of my new favorite 40k titles. I only hope he continues the series.

Amazing!

I loved this book from the start. The characters, greatly portraited by the voice actors, are well written and the story both exciting and intriguing. This is an amazing book and I will listen to it again.
