Inhaltsangabe

The Custodian Guard have stood watch over the Emperor's Palace on Terra since the foundation of the Imperium. Charged with protecting the Master of Mankind from all threats, within and without, their fearsome resolve is renowned throughout the galaxy, and their golden armour is the last thing that a would-be assassin or saboteur will ever see.

Alongside the Null-maidens of the Sisters of Silence, who are anathema to psykers and sorcerers alike, there is no threat to the Golden Throne that they alone cannot vanquish...until now.

Great in written form, even better to listen to!

Wraight is telling an interesting story following the Fall of Cadia, depicting the inner workings of the Imperium, the mighty Adeptus Custodes and the Sisters of Silence.
Every minute is worth listening to, the narrators embody their counterparts brilliantly. All in all a great work, both from Chris Wraight and all 3 narrators.

Outstanding performance from all voice actors

This gave me an interesting insight into the politics of Terra and the mind of the sister of silence.

Amazing book and even better actors!

Listened to the whole book in one sitting. Something i hadn't even done with the Abnett books. Would definitely recommend for 40k fans.

Geniale Sprecher und glaubhafte Charaktere...

Ich habe mich in erster Linie vom Cover leiten lassen. Custodians und Schwestern haben mich schon immer interessiert. Wie sich die Geschichte und die Charaktere entwickelten hat mich sowohl fasziniert als auch bewegt. Ein guter Einblick in alle Aspekte des gigantischen Imperiums der Menschheit, seinen Feinden und der zu menschlichen Begehrlichkeiten der Herrscher auf Terra. Besonders auch die verschiedenen Blickwinkel der handelnden Personen waren das was die Geschichte zu etwas besonderem machte. Eins der besten 40k Hörbücher das ich je gehört habe. Definitiv zu empfehlen.

What all 40k novels should be like

I will keep it concise:
- Well developed characters
- Sister of Silence
- Terran politician
- Custodes
- Well developed story

The story is told from the perspective of the 3 characters and is thus informed and influenced by each respective character. The event in which they are all involved gives the listener deep insight into the inner workings of the Imperium and the multitude of factions therein. At first I thought this book would be all about politics and the dealings of the 3 characters but, without spoiling, the story is so much more interesting.

While I started with Horus Heresy novels and got used to the story-telling there (character introduction, obstacle, dramatic build up, huge fight, good/bad ending) I really enjoyed this book much much more. It has more depth and is more immersive than almost all the Horus Heresy Novels I read so far (apart from Thousand Sons - damn that book is awesome).

All in all, you not only should but MUST listen to/read this book.
