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. 

The story:

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.

great book, great reader. poor quality playback.

at the beginning of every paragraph and every chapter, it slipped a few words and made you have to guess what was going on a few times. it really took me out of the story.

Ghostmaker, by far the best in Sci-Fy!

Although written years ago before the iPhone or even Amazon existed, Gauntsghosts is just as pertinent to the genre as it was when I first read it in its paperback format. I would recommend Warhammer 40,000 to anyone who loves Sci-aft!

Dan Abnett is a great writer and has never disappointed me. His ability to put the reader into the battlefield and convey the hearts and minds of the troops is phenomenal
