Description

A Warhammer 40,000 audiobook.   

In the Chaos-infested Sabbat Worlds, Imperial Commissar Gaunt must lead his men through as much in-fighting amongst rival regiments as against the forces of Chaos.   

Listen to it because: First and Only was one of the first books published by Black Library and is the most read Warhammer 40,000 novel ever, an absolute classic. This story begins the saga of Colonel Commissar Gaunt and the Tanith First and Only that has since grown into a multi-novel epic. It all starts here.  

The story: For a thousand years, the Sabbat Worlds have been lost to the Imperium, claimed by the dread powers of Chaos. Now, a mighty crusade seeks to return the sector to Imperial rule. And at the forefront of that crusade are Colonel-Commissar Ibram Gaunt and the Tanith First and Only - better known as Gaunt’s Ghosts. Trapped in the grinding trench warfare of Fortis Binary, the Ghosts find themselves drawn into a conspiracy to assassinate the crusade’s leader, Warmaster Macaroth. 

With enemies all around them and no one to trust, Gaunt and his men must find a way to save the warmaster and prevent the Sabbat Worlds Crusade from falling into anarchy - even if it means waging war on their supposed allies.

About Fething Time!

As an avid fan of 40k fiction and tabletop, Gaunt's Ghosts has always be a favorite. The opening book of the series is an excellent story filled with intrigue, action and most importantly, character development. If you are looking for the first book in a masterpiece of a series(And the first ever Black Library book ever), you should take a listen. Toby does a fantastic job portraying what Abnett has written on the pages. What are you waiting for you Feth stains!?! Get this book!

Great Listen

Disclaimer: I love the Gaunt’s Ghosts books. I have bought them all at least 3 separate times at this point. Hardcover, paperback, and ebook for all and I’m looking forward to getting more. I won’t bore you with a review of the story as there are countless others out there. This is a faithful and exacting recreation in audio form. The performance is also great. The only bad part is that of the 4 GG audiobooks available as of this review, there are 3 different narrators. This can make it slightly confusing book to book as they pronounce names differently and give some main characters different voices. It’s still a great listen and I really hope they decide to do the others books as well.

Shut up and take my money!

But seriously, Abnett's writing is on point as always. A lot of credit needs to go to Toby Longworth, the narrator. He has an amazing range as a voice actor, able to bring dozens of characters to life simultaneously. I highly recommend this and his rendition of Abnett's other work Brothers of the Snake.

I've been begging for this for years

This is the first book in a truly epic series. This transcends the 40k universe and makes 40k amazing.

Toby takes it home!

Cant read books anymore after that reading! Great story! Trying to stay spoiler free.. I wanted more context between the ship and the final planet section. The story kind of jumped forward (into action!) but that was probably me dozing to sleep since I nornally listen before bed.

Abnett and Longworth, a very worthy combination

It's the first book of Abnett's famous series about kommisar Gaunt and his regiment of imperial infantry, the Ghosts. I've already read the book twice, so none of the twists and revelations were really new to me but it was great fun anyhow. What I like most about the story and Abnett's style in generell is how the story happens aside from longsome battles and boring stories of slaughter towards the real paramount. Don't get me wrong, there is plenty of bloodshed and many characters you just started to know and like will die since it is war. But still those deaths serve a purpose in telling the story. And the story is worth it.

Fesselnd von Anfang bis Ende

Großartiger Sprecher, und tolle, packende Geschichte die einen fesselt und in ihren Bann zieht. Das düstere Setting und die vielfältigen Kulminationspunkte tragen zu dieser großartigen Erzählung zusätzlich bei.

Wiederhöhrwert garantiert.

Unglaublich spannende Geschichte die aus Zeitmangel nicht vor dem Einschlafen gelesen werden sollte da das Buch viel zu fesselnd ist.
