Publisher's Summary

An Adepta Sororitas novel.

In the wake of the war for Ophelia VII, Battle-Sister Evangeline of the Order of Our Martyred Lady embarks on a crusade into the darkness that lies beyond the Great Rift, seeking vengeance and revelation, but surviving the journey will only be the first and most simple test of her faith. 

Listen to It Because: Delve into Imperium Nihilus with a tale of faith and fury that looks at the nature of the Adepta Sororitas and their place in the new Dark Imperium.  

The Story: With the birth of the Cicatrix Maledictum the Imperium of Mankind suffers as never before. Conflict and corruption is rife on every front and precious little hope remains, save for those who hold to their faith when faced with destruction.... 

Denied a martyr’s death during the battle for Ophelia VII, Sister Evangeline of the Order of Our Martyred Lady is blessed with a new and grave duty: to embark on a pilgrimage beyond the Great Rift to recover a precious and powerful artefact - the Shield of Saint Katherine. Accompanied by the enigmatic Inquisitor Ravara, who seeks her own closure in the veiled regions beyond the Rift, Evangeline must find a way to bear the weight of this unasked-for destiny if she and her Sisters are to succeed in restoring a fragment of light to this new dark Imperium.

Just okay, has some issues

I was looking forward to this new novel featuring Sisters of Battle but overall found it kind of disappointing. The story was slow, dragging along at times. For example there were lengthy character introductions that mostly didn't have a payoff by the end. Although supposedly featuring a Sister of Battle protagonist about half the book is actually about an Inquisitor. In the end, these parts of the book I found more interesting, which just means that the SoB parts of the book ended up being the least interesting. In the end, the story doesn't even REALLY resolve itself, instead setting up for a sequel.

As for the audio performance, it was okay. I did appreciate that there were two performers for the two different characters, with voice matched to the character, however this resulted in frustrating, avoidable, differences such as the two readers pronouncing the same character's name differently.

Overall, I had high hopes that were disappointed.

Excellent Story

Many feels 10/10

Excellent storytelling

A great book! Characters struggle with realistic problems in realistic ways and drive the story forward incredibly well with great character progression. I would definitely recommend it.

LGBTQ+ reoresentation in Warhammer!

Besides being a really fun warhammer adventure book, with appropriate amounts of "bolter porn" (ie: well described badassery), it's nice to see positive LGBTQ+ representation in a warhammer novel, instead of just being "deviant vampires" or "deviant slaanesh cultists" or even being seen as "not normal". Instead we have a scifi badass adventure story full of a very ethnically diverse characters with LGBTQ+ characters too in the main cast with all the same boons and flaws of any warhammer protagonist. I'd love to see more like this in the future. <3

It’s a decent read for a Sisters of Battle book

The story plays out like a rollercoaster. When it gets going, it flows well. Though there are several slow points in the book.

Okay...Great and Meh

The singing was a big turn off. But the story was great. A fresh perspective on an inquisitor. Character development was good. The emperor loving supernatural faith was very present and fun at times. All in all a good listen; great at times, meh at others.

Predictable Story....not a good ending.

I really like WH40k books but this one was a struggle to finish! The repetitive way the say names like "Evagaline!" and "Ari!" it just started to get under my skin. The narrator's did a good job with what the had. This book just left me as hollow as the Thousand Sons..

There are better stories

Struggled through this book. Definitely not something I should have listened to right after Eisenhorn and Ravenor series. Didn't like the Inquisitor right off the bat. Did not really care for any of the characters and the singing threw me off.

Solid

Love the beginning of the story with the sisters. Not s fan of the inquisitor or how the sister takes so long to develop as a strong character. Overall a solid story and great performance.
