Publisher's Summary

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.

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!

Colonel Commisar Gaunt proves his worth again.

This read was wonderful, focusing less on individual characters such as Brin Milo it truly displays the horror of siege warfare on a hive. Unlike The Siege Of Terra the scaling is within human comprehension and it makes for a wonderful read

They need to produce the other books for Audible, this series is fantastic and Toby's narration breathes life into these great characters
