Publisher's Summary

A Necrons audio.

Trazyn the Infinite and Orikan the Diviner are opposites. Each is obsessed with their own speciality and their rivalry spans a millennia. Yet together, they may hold the secret to saving the necron race....

Listen to it because: explore a story told across the millennia that delves deep into a pair of fascinating necron characters, their relationship and their plans for the galaxy.

The story: before the being called the Emperor revealed himself, before the rise of the aeldari, before the necrontyr traded their flesh for immortal metal, the world was born in violence. Even when they inhabited bodies of flesh, Trazyn the Infinite and Orikan the Diviner were polar opposites. Trazyn, a collector of historical oddities, presides over a gallery full of the most dangerous artefacts - and people - of the galactic past. Orikan, a chronomancer without peer, draws zodiacs that predict and manipulate the future. But when an artefact emerges that may hold the key to the necrons’ next evolution, these two obsessives enter a multi-millennia game of cat and mouse that ends civilisations, reshapes timelines, and changes both forever. As riddles unwind and ancient secrets are revealed, the question remains: will their feud save the necron race or destroy it?

Written by Robert Rath. Narrated by Richard Reed.

Even Good for Non-Necron Fans

Funny, suspenseful, unpredictable and yet all twists were wholly earned. One of the best books Black Library has ever published.

Refreshingly Funny

This book is an enjoyable change of pace from all the grim dark. It feels like a throw back to when the 40K setting didn’t take itself so seriously. Two Necron lords battle through the millennia and it’s a lot of fun to listen to. (The fact they all sound like how I imagine Tsarist Russians to sound like adds to the whole effect.)

The infinite and the divine was engaging and compelling to the last sentence. I thoroughly enjoyed listening. Hopefully they will continue on with this narrative, as I am left still wanting more. Wonderful, truly wonderful.

An enjoyable, surprisingly light-hearted story

Although this is my first official hearing of a tale within the 40k universe, I am no stranger to the universe's lore and the vast amount of novels under the ip; part of the main reason why I tend to not delve into the books and stick more to the lore tellings. The infinite and the divine, however, is an enjoyable entry point for readers with a basic understanding of warhammer 40k lore, mainly concerning that of the necrons, who want a more focused story not spread out over muliple novels *cough*horusheresy*cough*.

I will have to put a heavy emphasis on knowing a basic level of necron lore though, or else you will get lost on some story points.

I would say this novel is also the closest you will get to a comedy rival duo romp that takes place over centuries within the 40k verse, sprinkled with some intrigue and genuinely touching moments, something I was actually not expecting.

Overall I would definately recommend giving the infinite and the divine a listen, if nothing else just to experience Trazyn and his shennanigans; He is great and this book has made me a fan of his character.

Two immortal nerds fight and troll each other.

The is a book about two immortal NERDS fighting and trolling each other over a mcguffin. Which turns out to be exactly what I wanted.

Warhammer 40K Fans Rejoice! It's Perfect!

I. Love. This. Story.

I am a massive Warhammer 40K fan. In particular, I have been collecting Necron models since close to their initial release in 2002. I've been sticking with these guys through the initial tank shredding 1st Codex, through the Wardian era, and now through the Indomitus era. This story pretty much embodies everything great about the Necrons and in particular, the characters of Trazyn the Infinite and Orikan the Diviner. This story is basically "two old dudes troll each other mercilessly over the course of several millennia" and it is everything I had hoped it would be. You couldn't ask for a more perfect pair of protagonists in Trazyn and Orikan, both functional demigods of an ancient sentient race that had long since given up their flesh and blood to become the immortal robots that we know them as through the course of this story. One looks to the past to one day rebuild their lost culture, the other looks to the future to see what could be. Through these conflicting viewpoints, they are set on inevitable collision courses spanning tens of thousands of years, and it is a beautiful sight to watch this trainwreck of a dysfunctional co-dependant relationship unfold.

It does require a little bit of knowledge of the Warhammer 40K universe to fully appreciate, but if you like sci-fi dark comedies, it is well worth the little investment to learn what an "Aeldari" is or what is meant by a Necron's "Necrodermis."

I stan Trazycan all the way.

Trazyn is a nercon with a Spaniard accent to me.

Love the performance and writing. The deep look into the grumpy old crons and Necron Court, couldn't be more entertaining.

Fantastic performance by the narrator. Well executed concepts of immortal beings, and how they experience time.

A fine addition to my collection...

Of 40k audiobooks. Definitely recommend this one for Necron fans old and new. Gives Necrons more flavor while still keeping them obviously alien.

If the Muppets Statler & Waldorf were Necrons...

& that's not a hood thing!
Most Gods awful 40k novel I've ever bought. For all their aeons of regal-ness & suchlike, they're just grumpy, petty, morons. It's not even so bad that it's funny. I'm 2/3rds in & it's still going nowhere & doing nothing.

The Narrator is ok, but too often voices are too similar. I've had to skip back more than a few times to suss a conversation out.

I took the advice of all the glowing reviews... & I'm just stun'd at how bad it is! I can [& do!] give a 40k novel a good amount of leeway in quality, as overall it's not hard to find redeeming qualities here & there. I can't, I just can't with this book. If this is what Necrons are like in the Black Library-Verse..? Gods I hope not, as I really want to get to know these ancient dynasts. But yeah, if this is how they're to be written, never again!

Great non-imperial story

Really good story and an Amazing performance. Both principal characters written incredibly well and brought to life by the narrator in a stunning and convincing fashion. Super enjoyable. On of the best 40k audios there is, and especially great if you want a break from human stories.
