Publisher's Summary

Book 2 in the Gaunt's Ghosts series

Of all the Astra Militarum regiments who fought in the Sabbat Worlds Crusade, few are as celebrated as the Tanith First - Gaunt's Ghosts. Now, their tragic origins and earliest battles are revealed....

Listen to it because:

Discover the origins of Gaunt's Ghosts and see the Tanith First and Only are put through the wringer as they overcome their home world's destruction and battle the forces of Chaos.

On Monthax, Colonel-Commissar Ibram Gaunt and his Tanith First-and-Only await the order to advance into the sweltering jungle and drive the alien eldar from the world. As battle approaches, Gaunt walks the lines, raising his men's spirits and remembering their most heroic deeds - and the tragedies that have dogged Gaunt's Ghosts from the day of their founding on lost Tanith. The day that Gaunt became known as the Ghostmaker.

fantastic book that requires your full attention

For context, i usually listen to audiobooks while working and driving so when i started this book I realized i needed to pay more attention to the story because its really well told but frequently jumps to different points in time and tells multiple short stories about the members of the ghosts. It was easy to miss some of the transitions to different stories and could be confusing but it was such a good book that i went back for a second listen to pick up the details that i missed.

even better

I enjoyed the first book, so when the second turned out to be a series of vignettes giving deeper understanding of the men under Gaunt's command, I was intrigued, and once finished, gratified. I will in all likelihood be buying this in hardcopy as well.

Good 1st and 2nd acts, but ending less so.

Solid 40K book. My only complaint is the ending is abrupt and feels almost contrived.

Action packed collection of short stories!

The sequel to First and Only surrenders a large, overarching plot to instead delve deep into the primary characters of the Taneth 1st Regiment. Abnett flexes his skills as a writer of brutal, engrossing scenes depicting the heroics of soldiers fighting a war that sees them as nothing more than specks of sand against a ride. Still, each take is riveting and gives you a crystal clear look into the hearts of men fighting for the memory of ahome long since burned to ash.

A story of Ghosts

A in depth look at some of the greatest Ghosts of Tanith's First and Only. A gripping story of heroism and drama. I loved it from start to finish and cant wait to hear more of this heroic Scottish Spacefaring Light Infantry Regiment of a lost World.
