Publisher's Summary

Plying the stars and forgotten backwaters of the Imperium, Rogue Trader Captain Athene Santiago and her eclectic crew are chasing pirates when their quarry inexplicably vanishes, only to return a moment later.

Unwilling to let her bounty go unclaimed, Santiago ventures aboard the now stricken vessel, but what she finds defies reason and leads to a discovery of something ancient and terrifying that could threaten not only her crew and her ship but the entire sector.

Great Rogue Trader story

Id recommend this book to those who want to see the 40k universe from a more human perspective. It’s also great for those who liked Firefly, Star Wars, or many other SciFi properties.

This story doesn’t focus on war, but more on mystery. It might not give you a good understanding of the world from fresh eyes, but it’s easy to figure out that Humans of the Imperium dislike Aliens such as the Eldar. And that there a psychic Humans and Humans that are completely mechanical.

If this is your first introduction to the Warhammer 40k world you may need to find a book or audio drama that’s better at describing it. But if you are a seasoned 40k enthusiast you’ll catch subtle clues and be intrigued by where the story goes.

I hope this story gets a sequel. Also the cast did a marvelous job. No one sounded out of place or too much the same as one another.

Space Adventure

A fun (albeit short) adventure, really enjoyed how diverse all the crew felt and sounded. Would definitely enjoy a sequel.
