Description

The Custodian Guard have stood watch over the Emperor's Palace on Terra since the foundation of the Imperium. Charged with protecting the Master of Mankind from all threats, within and without, their fearsome resolve is renowned throughout the galaxy, and their golden armour is the last thing that a would-be assassin or saboteur will ever see.

Alongside the Null-maidens of the Sisters of Silence, who are anathema to psykers and sorcerers alike, there is no threat to the Golden Throne that they alone cannot vanquish...until now.

Exceptional

Fills in a great deal of back story on the sisters and the custodians. Very well written and performed. This was a alot of fun to listen to. If you have previous knowledge of what happened to Cadia and how the Primarch returned this story goes from good to great.

Enjoyed greatly

Excellent writing and good character development.

Switches between a custody, sister of silence and consoler on terra during gathering storm. Story starts out slow and gradually builds very well.

Just a warning, even though this happens during gathering storm the perpectives is on terra so dont expect any big reveals into major events of gathering storm.

it was alright!

It was okay! the voice actor/actresses did fine, I didn't find the story overly engaging. I did however just listen to the dark imperium series and talon of Horus series, so my standards might be set a bit high.

Amazing work!

If I could I would have stood up and given Chris Wraight and the narrators a standing ovation. Absolutely brilliant in all fronts. I'm starting it ver immediately and I'm sure I'll pick up tons of things I missed.

great book, takes place chronilogically before dark imperium, I read them out of order but it doesn't matter too much.

Enjoyable from start to finish

Loved this story, it has a good cross between narrative and bolter open. I would suggest this to anyone wanting to know more of how Custodes and Null Maidens think.

stay away from the black library app

I purchased this audiobook along with another and an audio drama on the black library app... Due to unfortunate complications with the BL app I had to make the purchases again; I'll gladly do so seeing as though I loveed each one of my purchases that much!
I have listened to each one more than 10 times separately and may end up adding the "carrion throne" to my collection. 😏 I must be kidding myself I am definitely going to add it to my collection.

My collection is as follows:
"The master of mankind"
"The emperor's legion"
pretty soon hereafter the review "the carrion throne"
"The interrogation of Salvador Lermentov"

Great Story to Immerse yourself in.

Loved it, 40k is a beloved franchise to me and this was phenomenal. The characters are felt and the story is worked through in elegance.

Great to see Black Library on audible!

I liked the story more than I expected (didn’t know what to expect though). Chris Wraight is one of my favorite BL authors- & I think his writing helped carry the book. The characters have depth to them, but the action sequences are well written & not confusing.

I know a fair amount of the story that led up to this setting- so I can’t recommend just blindly diving in.

Begin the ‘Gathering Storm’ aka Dark Imperium Timeline with this book

Great entry point into the ‘Gathering Storm’ aka Dark Imperium fresh timeline of 40k. The three viewpoints included in this novel provide an excellent sense of scale of the events gripping the Imperium. I found this performance of the three narrators to be excellent. I especially liked the intrigue of the Lords of Terra and their interactions with the Custodes as they grappled with the events in the book. The drama of the Lords reminded me of the machinations of the recent Beast Arises series. My only complaint was that the ending didn’t fully satisfy all the buildup.

A side of 40K you don’t often experience

I really enjoyed this book simply because it shows a side of the 40K universe you don’t often get to experience—how the workings of the Emperor’s Legion, the Sisters and the High Lords all interact. Furthermore, having a different reader for each character adds so much gravitas and vividness to the narration that you find yourself immersed in the story—something I really haven’t experienced in an audio book outside the first three or four Hours Heresy novels. A great listen!

Awesome

Everything I’d hoped it be and more. With that said the “Sisters of Silence” part could get a lil boring at times but that was more than made up for by the rest, excellent writing and plot. Just good ol fashion Warhammer 40k.
