    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!

    Absolutely great insight into 40k

    great insight with diverse points of view and different beats to the story to keep it interesting - the intrigue was really well seeded and mysterious until the resolution at the climax of the book. ADB's best work so far, and very probably the best 40k book I've read (surpassing even Gaunt's, Eisenhorn/ravenor and co.)

    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.

    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.

    Who Chose This Narrator?

    This is only a review for the audiobook. I can't speak to the quality of the story because I couldn't get through five minutes of it. Before I bought it I saw a woman was the narrator. I thought that she must have given a top notch delivery because 40k stories are almost exclusively about power armored ubermensch pounding on things while giving angry sermons about the God-Emperor of Man, and that's a tough challenge for a lady voice.

    So how the fuck did this woman get the job!? According to Audible she hasn't done any voice acting before. And I've only heard her do the voice for two space marines and they were both in higher pitches than I could comfortably speak in! These characters are supposed to sound like James Earl Jones but instead they sound like Gadget from Rescue Rangers. Everyone who was involved in this decision should be fired.

    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.

    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.

    A glimpse into Imperium nihlus

    The book synopsis grabbed me. Author grabbed me.
    I was expecting to read about Space Marines and their struggles in the ruven Imperium. What i got was a pow of a female thrall and so many jumps in the story that i kinda felt that this was a mashup of many short stories and not a one book. Author has given us too many jumps into the future with this book with casual noncharlance that i didnt find apealing at all.

    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.

    Amazing Story & One Hell of a Narrator

    I’m unabashedly a huge fan of ADB, so this was a no-brainer purchase, but my goodness I was not expecting Kelly Hotten.

    What an incredible job with all the characters, infusing them with life, humor and care.

    I hope she does more work in the Warhammer universe, and eventually, hopefully, the second tale in this sagar.

    Unexpected

    The story wasn’t really what I expected to hear. From the description of the novel in the synopsis, I’d have selected much more of the novel to involve the space marines and their chapter rather than a chapter serf.

    Boring story about a female chapter thrall

    The story revolves about a female chapter thrall and her misfortunes. As a side story you learn a bit about the Spears and the Mentors. The female speaker is not bad but a female voice speaking for Space Marines is a no-go for me.

    erzählerstimme

    grundsätzlich ist die Erzählerin super in ihrem Job und ich höre ihr auch gerne beim Geschichten erzählen zu. mir fällt es nur schwer mit einen genetisch und biologisch modifizierten engel des Todes vorzustellen wenn er sich anhört wie ein Rabe im stimmbruch. die Geschichte ist aber sehr spannend und vor allem nicht so linear wie ich es von anderen Geschichten aus dem warhammer 40k Universum kenne.

    Very good!

    Very nice story! only problem i had was with the speaker sometimes. I am not sexist but she sounded kinda silly in some places, trying to imitate a dark man voice with accent.. i think sometimes it felt a little forced and overdone. but overall I enjoyed the book very much!

    Another great Space Marine Story by ADB

    A fun book about a unique chapter of Space Marines and their visitor from the Mentor Legion.
    The book does a great job of showing how different the cultures of multiple Space Marine Chapters can be, even if they are drevied from the same gene-seed. Story is told from the POV of a chapter serf.
    The book has some sections that are a bit slow at the beginning and in the middle, but nothing that has too big of an impact on the flow of the overall tale. I only have some very minor issues with some of the stuff that is a bit over-the-top, even for Warhammer 40.000 (A chapter serf with access to Vortex grenades is bit much....), but that might just be my personal nerdiness overreacting.
    Furthermore, there are some cross-refernces to other ADB novels, such as "Sanctus Reach", giving a nice "ah!" moment to readers/listeners that know these stories. However, it is not necessary to have read them in order to understand this book, as it stands well on its own. However, if you are not familiar with the Warhammer 40.000 universe, I would say that this book is not a good entry point, as one would be quite lost without the background knowledge.

    The reader of this audiobook also gave a great performance, especially in the last third of the book, when the main character is going through some serious emotional distress. If there is a sequell (which seems highly likely), I hope Kelly Hotten will be back to narrate that one as well.
