Publisher's Summary

A Necromunda novel.

When full-scale gang war erupts between Houses Goliath and Escher, Brielle of the Wild Hydras finds herself on the run and desperate for revenge.... 

Listen to it because....

Delve into the darkest reaches of the underhive in a tale of vengeance, ambition and gruesome deeds from Necromunda's underhive.  

The story.... 

In the polluted, sprawling hive cities of Necromunda, life is short. From the decadent heights of the Spire to the murderous deeps of the underhive, those on the climb must be bold and brutal, or face a violent end.  

When the barbarous Fettnir, Goliath overlord of the Chemfall Butchers, turns his attention to Escher territory, the result is nothing short of a massacre. 

Brielle of the Wild Hydras escapes the slaughter and is cast into the deepest levels of the underhive. 

Determined to avenge her family, Brielle vows that she will end those responsible, but to reach Fettnir and the bounty hunter who murdered her mother, she must first survive...and the darkness is full of horrors.  

Written by Justin D Hill. Running time 9 hours and 5 minutes. Narrated by Emma Noakes.

maybe my expectations were too high

Where to start other than the beginning? I felt the story started off excellent, got slow in the middle kinda lost its way entirely and then finished ok. Without giving too much away the middle chapters were a real chore tonget through. I have enjoyed Mr Hills shie and stories in this setting but this felt needlessly stretched out. sorry for gammer spelling typing this out on mobile.

get it for the beginning bits and the wonderfully descriptive setting.

i wanted to read about Necrominda....and this was?

It was good not great. Brielle was a fun character (sidebar....what's with the badass female characters being named Brielle. This and Rogue Trader. I loved both characters)
The narrator did great, and I truly equated her voice with the characters. Which means they did good enough for me to forget about it being narrated.
The problems came from pacing. It let me know who the major players were and who the main characters in a way that built up the setting. A lot of the story just jumped forward in ways that felt incongruous with pacing in other parts of the book. Its still an interesting book but the jumps ahead would kind of leave cold to the characters. it did this just enough to make it hard to finish the book.

Oddly enough I am still interested in the follow up to this book that it alluded to. So it was good with small improvements the next book will be great.

When is the next one?!

At first I feared the story was just going to be a slow monologue then when it picked up I was eager to go back to the beginning to make sure I didn't miss out on any vital moments of the story. I was hooked and was quite pleased how Emma narrated the story. More please, I have a whole bunch of Escher miniatures to paint and I need more inspiration to listen to whilst I'm painting.

Why the title?

This book perfectly captures the horror, desperation and depression of the Underhive and combines it with a solid underdog story. Perhaps I missed it somewhere, but the only thing I didn't understand is why its called Terminal Overkill and not something a bit less forgettable.
