Publisher's Summary

The Ghosts of the Tanith First-and-Only have been away from the front line for too long. Listless and hungry for action, they are offered a mission that perfectly suits their talents.

The objective: the mysterious Salvation's Reach, a remote and impenetrable stronghold concealing secrets that could change the course of the Sabbat Worlds campaign. But the proposed raid is so hazardous, it's regarded as a suicide mission, and the Ghosts may have been in reserve for so long they've lost their edge. Haunted by spectres from the past and stalked by the Archenemy, Colonel-Commissar Gaunt and his Ghosts embark upon what could be their finest hour...or their final mission.

record more of the Guants Ghosts series.

I would love to hear this narrator to do the entirety of the Guants Ghosts series.

Record all the Gaunt books, I WILL BUY THEM!

I have waited so long for these. When I first saw this in the black library I nearly baught it...but I waited for two reasons. 1: I didn't have the time then. 2: I wanted it on Audible with the rest of my collections.
I got time and I got my wish....now I just need the rest of the collection....to whom it may concern: I WILL BUY THEM IF MADE AVAILABLE .

Oh and review: narrator is great (keep him), story good, quality solid.

Gaunt!!!

If you are here, you already know it. Just listen and enjoy.
Although prior to listening to this I did not realize that words like “alarm” weren’t pronounced as “alarrem”. It added so much more to an olde beloved tale. I only await for the rest of The Ghost’s tales to be available through this service.

Outstanding

This is the best look into the 40k universe that you are going to find. All these books are have to feel of Saving Private Ryan in the grim dark future. I love the series and really hope they adapt ever novel on the series.

The reader is awful with this book

Sorry to say but james mcpherson not only does not add to the book but makes it unlistenable. I think he would be good with a different type of book but not warhammer. So try the preview and see if he works for you first.

I was fully transported

It's been years since I picked up a Ghost book and I grabbed this one on a whim. I usually don't buy anything under 20 hours, but I made an exception here and I'm glad I did. It was slow to start, but Dan Abnett does it again, and the new action is a refreshing review of what it means to live as a mere Imperial Guardsman in the universe of Warhammer 40k.

That being said, the true gem of this release is James MacPherson, whose accent is a perfect match for the characters, in my opinion. This guy has incredible range and once I settled into his style, I immediately checked to see if he'd done any other Ghost books because now I just can't hear Gaunt's, or Throne save us, Blenner's voices without him. He was excellent and made the entire experience riveting for me.

Masterful descriptions

I often am intrigued about life in the future and how the military changes in the context of Warhammer 40k. I always enjoy Gaunt's Ghosts alignment with the modern context.
The descriptions provided are so clear I can smell the environments, walk through the celebrations, stand at attention during inspections, as well as witness firsthand the dramas amongst the unit being authentic and sometimes as draining as they are exciting.

Fan fiction level writing, questionable narration

The writing is bad enough to be frustrating.

We’re rapidly introduced to a wide series of characters without enough time or reason to care about any of them. The one or two good ideas or pieces of storytelling are lost amidst the needless clutter.

Characters alter their behaviour to suit the immediate needs of the story - my breaking point was when one character dies because he begins behaving arbitrarily stupidly and ultimately because he fails to take a shot in favour of talking to himself, like a cliched Bond villain. Ugh.

Narration is passable but frequently slips into the Ministry of Silly Talks, with characters having strange and out of place exaggeratedly daft voices. The Scottish accent doesn’t help there frankly.,

Review

Some sections were difficult to get through.. A hell of alot of setup for the mission. I don't mind hearing about ship life etc but so many missed oppurtunities for something interesting and a few unanswered questions.

I did enjoy this book on the whole, and the end justified the build up. Gaunt is a good main character

Slow burn, with a great ramp up at the end.<br />Enjoy

Good voice actor. Many voices with good differences.
It took a while to really ramp up for me.
Even though a lot of intrige happen
