Description

A Warhammer 40,000 novel.

The Emperor's Spears are a Chapter on the edge of destruction, last watchmen over the Elara's Veil nebula. Now, the decisions of one man, Amadeus Kaias Incarius of the Mentor Legion, will determine the Chapter's fate.... 

Listen to it because:

Aaron Dembski-Bowden has turned his attention to creating (and maybe destroying) a Space Marine Chapter in detail, and this is your chance to discover their fate.  

The story: 

The scattered worlds of the Elara's Veil nebula were once protected by the oath of unity sworn by three mighty Chapters of the Adeptus Astartes. The Star Scorpions were undone by flaws in their genetic coding. The Celestial Lions were ravaged by the Inquisition for sins they did not commit. Now, after hundreds of years, only the Emperor's Spears still keep their vigil. They are barbarian watchmen against the Outer Dark, bloodied but unbroken in their long duty.  

Amadeus Kaias Incarius, a brother of the Mentor Legion, is commanded to cross the Great Rift and assess the Spears' war-readiness, only to be drawn into the chaotic plight of a depleted crusade on the Imperium's benighted frontier. The decisions he makes, far from the God-Emperor's light, will decide the fate of the war-torn Chapter.  

Written by Aaron Dembski-Bowden. Running time 11 hours and 46 minutes. Performed by Kelly Hotten.

Great book!

As usual with ADB, the writing is awesome, the story engaging and the characters interesting. Had no problem to understand the narrator (English isn't my mother tongue) and her acting was on point. Can't wait for the next one!

fantastic New offering from ADB

this book is rad.

I was bummed that John Keeble was not the narrator but when o realized it is told from a female perspective the female narrator not only made sense but was also fantastic in her portrayal.

ADB is one of my favorite writers. he is able to inject real humanity and pathos into what is basically a trashy space opera universe populated by ridiculous stuff.

he has great characters in all his books, this one is no exception. good use of humor. dialogue that sounds like real people are talking. a sense of scale and real stakes. and there are good twists and turns. I was genuinely surprised at several moments in this book.

get it. you'll like it. if you don't then it is because you're not a good person.

apparently not optional, a heading is

I intensely dislike her choice of accent for the Spears of the Emperor. her voice is super jarring and the sibilant notes are even more grating than a typical Russian accent. In fact, why go with a Russian accent for a chapter supposedly using characteristics based on Roman-Greco culture.

Great Story

I loved the story. Its nice to see a story all from the view of a normal human with the point still being about space marines. I also loved the narator's performance.

Narration is Fine

Voice acting is clear, high quality and well paced. the accent of the cast is no more remarkable than most Black Library audio products.

Reviews calling out the casting for the main narrator are made in bad faith, story is told from the POV of a woman in a fantasy space empire, so the mode and delivery are well suited to the action and exposition of the series.

Horrendous narration.

The narration is so bad I not only returned it hours after downloading it but I’m writing a review. It’s some lady that sounds like a British cartoon character. The only one that’s worse is the Scottish guy who’s accent is so think you can’t understand more than a few word in each sentence. Get your $&@! Together Black Library.

Narrator is great! One of my favorite 40K books!

I love the narrator’s performance. This is easily one of my favorite 40K books. Typical Bowden excellence, unique perspectives of familiar concepts that animate the 41st millennium in a fresh, yet belovedly familiar way. I see a lot of people complaining about the narrator. Bull! I loved her performance.

Not ADB's best

The audio performance is great. The chapter serf PoV is relatively unique.

Overall the ending kills any momentum the book builds too. It just pulls a 180 and who think is the main antagonist isn't. Kind of sloppy.

Nothing big comes up lore wise. If you want to read about space marines in battle, here ya go.

Best Black Library Book!

This book will introduce the Emperor Spears. Beyond that it will craft and create characters you will hate, love, and
mourn. It will craft a narrative that will pull at your heart strings and then fill you will objective fulfillment. Highly recommend for a real journey into the 40k universe!

Atmospheric, captivating.

A smart and intriguing story, masterly narrated. I cannot recommend this enough if you like 40k or dark, dysthopic scifi in general.

Loved it!

Another perfect story from ADB and an outstanding performance by Kelly Hotten. Don't let the negative reviews fool you, this one was worth the wait.
