Publisher's Summary

The Cadian Gate is broken, and the Imperium is riven in two. The might of the Traitor Legions, kept shackled for millennia behind walls of iron and sorcery, has been unleashed on a darkening galaxy. Among those seeking vengeance on the Corpse Emperor’s faltering realm are the Death Guard, once proud crusaders of the Legiones Astartes, now debased creatures of terror and contagion. 

Mighty warbands carve bloody paths through the void, answering their lord primarch’s call to war. And yet for all their dread might in arms, there is no escape from the vicious legacies of the past, ones that will pursue them from the ruined daemon-worlds of the Eye of Terror and out into the smouldering wastes of the Imperium Nihilus.

like falling in love with a Zit,

I had so much fun, the way the legion is expressed in the polarities of the old Barbarus born and the 'newer' generations of Death Guard. Enjoyable through and through ^-^

Fun for fans of Nurgle

A fun look inside the machinations of a nurgle warband. The story is somewhat uninspired and the performance has lots of grunting and gravely voices but if you like descriptions of filth, slime, and bubbling corruption then this one's for you.

A great listen!

The start was a bit slow but then it really picked up. The characters are all very interesting and unique. It really helps to create a image of how the death gaurd feel. I would totally recommend it if you like the death gaurd at all.

Enjoyable

The voice acting is well done and the story was interesting. I started listening to the audiobook while I was feeling sick, which made me feel a certain connection with the Death Guard. Worth a listen.

Nurgle more than just a plague God

After reading/listening to this book I’m a full convert to Grandfather Nurgle’s way of life. When you realize how bad the people in the empire are treated it’s just best to go with Nurgle’s philosophy

Great Insight

This story really shines insight into the Death Guard and the inter-communication with other traitor legions. Also really shows the other side of an imperial vs. chaos battle.

The Death Guard walk the galaxy once more

This audiobook details the story of a Death Guard warband, The Lords of Silence. The characters (mostly villains!) are incredibly fleshed out. Each has their own agenda and personality. Many iconic characters are included in the story, such as Mortarion and Typhus in their 10,000 year old rotting forms. A fantastic narrative and incredible voice acting make the Lords of Silence a very fun book! I'm a fan of the Death Guard, and I enjoyed every minute of the experience.

Docking a star for one reason alone...

The volume levels need increased so bad it isn't funny. Such a great story so well writen and preformed, but you can't hear much of it while doing anything. As an aside... AUDIBLE GIVE US VOLUME BOOST!

Finally.

I am biased when it comes to Death Guard as I play them in tabletop, but this was exactly what I wanted. I have waited some time for a Death guard novel and was not dissapointed. The characters had that slow methodical cadence to them that I expect from the sons of the Rotten Angel. The combat was satisfiying, and the insights from the characters were interesting. I was pleased with the descriptions, which were gross but not overly so. I can only speak as someone who is already a big fan, but I found the book very enjoyable. Chris Wraight wrote a detailed delve into the depressed, disgusting world of the Death Guard, and John Banks gave yet another terrific performance.

Disgusting and full of character

A must read for any Death Guard fan! Chris Wraight takes the characterizations he cut his teeth on from Dark Imperium and turns it up to 11. The characters are disgusting, evil, petty killers but you can’t help but want to know their stories. As a giant Death Guard fan this novel was an utter treat to listen to!

Satisfies that festering Death Guard itch!

The putrid flavor of the XIVth Legion is done very well by writer and reader both.

9/10 farting little lords.

Papa Nurgle is pleased!

The story was great he embodied the Servants of nurgle exactly how I would imagine. You almost feel as if you are on the ship with the lords of silence. The narration of the book was outstanding. With out a doubt worth the buy!!

Good look into the Death Guard

Want to know just how far the Death Guard have fallen? This story will fill you in. It also gives some insight into the lack of a unifying force for the Traitor legions. I'd like to see something come out which would address why any of the traitors would follow Abadon. Mortarian states that he is a legionary trying to play the role of his dead father Horous and doing so poorly.

Oh well, good book and very interesting.
