    Description

    An Adepta Sororitas audiobook. 

    When a mission of Battle Sisters return to a desolate world to reconsecrate a remote Ecclesiarchy outpost, they soon discover an implacable foe - the fearless, soulless necrons - waiting in the darkness.... 

    Listen to It Because:

    Discover what happened after the massacre at Sanctuary 101, where Sisters of Battle were decimated in the first appearance of the necrons. This novel delves into the aftermath, pitting the devout Sisters against the ancient aliens once more. 

    The Story:

    The Sisters of Battle are the Emperor's most devout worshippers, fierce warriors preaching the purity of the Imperium and scourging their enemies with bolter and flamer. On a distant world, the Ecclesiarchy outpost of Sanctuary 101 was wiped out by an implacable foe - the fearless, soulless necrons. Now, a mission of the Sisterhood has returned to reconsecrate the site - but the metallic nightmares still lurk in the darkness, guarding a secret that has lain dormant for millennia. A vicious battle will be fought, one that can only end in the total destruction of the unrelenting xenos or the annihilation of the proud Adepta Sororitas. 

    Written by James Swallow. Narrated by Emma Gregory.

    More action, less story.

    Emma Gregorys performance is fantastic as always, and James Swallows writing is very good. But I was ultimately disappointed in this book, because here Swallow does away with the mystery and intrigue in favour of more straightforward action. Many 40k fans might prefer this approach, but I personally enjoy it more when the book keeps me guessing at what's coming next.

    Perhaps the key problem is that Sisters of Battle vs Necrons is a very poor match to build an interesting story from. Our beloved nuns with guns are all about HERESY and when you put instead them against some faux-egyptian space zombie robots, you lose their whole feel and soul. It's like trying to make pizza without the cheese or writing a novel where an Inquisitor of the ordo malleus and a squad of grey knights fight.... the Tau?!

    To me, its better than the first book for sure!

    the first book was kind of a grind at times. It had a lot of non-battle related story elements which is fine buy I prefer a bit more battle in my novels. This book is better in this regard and it gave me some insight into how Necrons think and operate. It's a good book and you actually don't NEED to read the first book but it will definitely help.

    Sisters, Necrons and the Mechanicus

    A gripping and satisfying story.

    I listened to this before 'Fire and Faith' which was set before this one with the same main characters; so there were several allusions to events past but this didn't get in the way - i would say that it is recommended to get Fire and Faith first but it is not absolutely essential. There are 'spoilers' for the beginning and overall ending of 'Fire and Faith' so be warned if you care about such things...

    I was engaged by the writing and excellent narration all the way through. I found the prose compelling; characters strong and several parts even made me laugh.

    It was really interesting to see the sisters go up against a foe which we would not normally associate them with. This book along with 'fire and faith' really went a long way in humanizing the sisters of battle for me; the Necrons come off as unstoppable, ancient and (surprisingly for me) truly evil at times.
    There were very strong world building elements too: we learn lots about the Necron-Tier, Sisters and the Mechanicus also. Some of my favourite parts of the narrative were from the perspective of the Tech-Priest: the descriptions of how they perceive the world; communicate with invisible lasers and collate data were very interesting. There were so many small details that helped to make the world come to life and feel more realistic.
    Without giving anything away, the story builds slowly and grows suspense well. It gets very action packed during the second half. The protagonists are likable and have depth to them - at no point did i feel that they did anything utterly stupid or behave unrealistically considering their situation. I never felt lost or confused with the story and nothing unfolded in too obvious a manor - i couldn't predict the ending from half an hour in like with some other stories.

    I did find one of the character voices a little grating but that is personal opinion. Overall the narrator does a really good job: none of the 'male' voices felt off or distracting and the variation really helped establish the minor characters.
    I would have preferred more of a 'show don't tell' approach to the Necrons: although their POV does give us some insight into their goals and adds more worldbuilding; i felt that some of the mystery and fear of the unknown was potentially lost.

    Overall i highly enjoyed and would recommend Hammer and Anvil.

    great continuation

    I enjoyed this audio book. Very enjoyable continuation of Miriya's story/ time-line. We get multiple perspectives in this and it gives important characters agency and depth. Would recommend.

    Performance elevates the story

    As a fan of the sisters and the necron I have a bias to enjoy this book. That said, I greatly enjoyed the experience of following these two factions clashing. I don't believe I will carry any of the characters with me, as they are all rather two dimensional. The characters feel more like archetypes meant to play roles in the plot rather than people and the events of the book are pretty low stakes in the view of the overall imperium.

    Where this book shines is in the performance. Emma makes these characters come to life, and her voice/accent is absolutely perfect for portraying these zealous women. Come for the robot v nun battles, stay for the performance.

    Okay, but poor villains due to lazy writing

    Sisters, AdMech, and Necrons are my favorite 3 armies so I was excited to read this one. Felt that the Necron leadership was portrayed to make such boneheaded choices that even the sisters were unsatisfied eith their inevitable victory. Some cool moments, but a good story needs a compelling villain and not a stupid one

    excellent. Go sororitas!

    starts slow but builds to a very tense and exciting story. Look forward to more.

    Solide 40k Story

    Es ist eine typische Warhammer 40.000 Geschichte. Man muss den übertriebenen Pathos, die allgegenwärtige Gewalt lieben und kein Problem mit einer geradlinigen Story haben, der es an überraschenden Wendungen fehlt.
    Ein großer Pluspunkt ist die sehr gute Darstellung der Adeptus Sororita, die endlich Mal einen brauchbaren Auftritt haben, bei dem sie nicht ständig das kurze Streichholz ziehen.
