    Description

    A Warhammer 40,000 novel

    Pride is everything for the dynastic kings of the Necron race, who have awakened after millennia to see their empires occupied by foul beasts and simple minds. For the Necron Lord Oltyx, the Ithakas dynasty was his by right, but the machinations of the court see him stripped of his position and exiled to a forgotten world.

    Listen to it because

    See the struggles of the Necron court from their own eyes, and discover the lengths one Lord will go to for the status they desire.

    The story

    Exile to the miserable world of Sedh, the disgraced Necron Lord Oltyx is consumed with bitterness. Once heir to the throne of a dynasty, he now commands nothing but a dwindling garrison of warriors, in a never-ending struggle against Ork invaders. Oltyx can think of nothing but the prospect of vengeance against his betrayers, and the reclamation of his birthright. But the Orks are merely the harbingers of a truly unstoppable force. Unless Oltyx acts to save his dynasty, revenge will win him only ashes. And so he must return to the crownworld, and to the heart of the very court which cast him out. But what awaits there is a horror more profound than any invader, whose roots are tangled with the dark origins of the Necrons themselves.

    Written by Nate Crowley. Narrated by Richard Reed.

    For Necron fans, old and new.

    With Richard Reed returning to the Necrons as a narrator I had high expectations, which he met. His work on ," The infinite and the divine," Being what got me into 40k in general. He shows great range in characters and their corrupt voices. His performance alone makes this a must have.

    The story is new and shows us so much more about the Mentality of the the Necron before and after the Bio-transference. Nate Crowley did qn amazing job in referencing deeper lore, characters and war gear that table top fans will be able to identify with ease.
    That being said I would most likely recommend this as the Story to start with if you want to learn about the Necron. The intense end to book one really gets you hyped for the second part that is soon to come.

    Just as good or better than the Infinite+Divine

    The Twice-Dead King: Ruin is a more serious take on Necron's and their society than The Infinite and the Divine was. However, it does a very good job of it. This book is riddled with the Necron's culture and how a noble Necron functions internally. More so, the introspection into how Necrons view flayed ones is also very interesting and is done very well. 10/10 would recommend.

    Give it time

    This book tricks you at the beginning, makes you believe the protagonist is nothing but a self important fool only thinking of himself and what he's entitled to, his elder a bully and his post a punishment where we'll laugh at his misadventures like in the infinite and the divine. It's not a comedy, it is a tragedy, a beautiful story in fact, must read for necron fans.

    Be like Trazyn and add this to your collection

    After listening to other 40K books mainly set in the Hersey this was a good change in pace. I was looking forward to another book about the Necrons after listing to Trazyns adventures. I was hopping for a light hearted adventure not a start to a epic new charector that I love and want more of. I am going into stasis till book 2 is out

    A good listen

    Richard Reed performance is excellent as always. That alone is worth a listen. The portrayal of the filleted ones is really on point. The author really captured there creepy and bizarre behavior. The main character is well developed. I do love the dive into necron psychology. The thought that they have a rogue code inside them that believes it's alive and they need to be suppress was creative. My only problem was the battle with the Imperium felt rushed. other than that still enjoyed will definitely pick up the next book.

    Love these Necron books

    I've never been a fan of the 40k books I've read. but this and the infinite and the divine were much better than the other ponderous books I've tried to read from the 40k setting.

    Absolutely amazing!

    An excellent look into the lives and psyche of the necrons. Enjoyed it all from start to finish, genuinely one of my favorites and very excited to start the next one!

    Didn't think it would be possible to empathise with soulless death-robots, but here we are.

    Fantastic deep dive into the lore!

    Hooked on this book from start to finish! As a Necron player in the ttg, I was looking for more lore and this provided it in spades. All the way up until the ending it had my attention in it's grasp, and I've immediately purchased and downloaded the sequel. Can't recommend this book enough to anyone even remotely interested in the Necrons.

    Nice~

    Even if games workshop is kinda the bad guy since a few years.
    The lore and the authors of such great books aren't at fault for their masters bad practices.

    THIS book is why i love necrons so much.
    Or rather this is one of the books that just spill over with passion, lore and well thought out plot.

    Given an extremly god like voice actor, that is Richard Reed, it's well written story get that breath of life instantly.
    Well ... un-life? What type of exisnteces are necrons again. Something like souls stripped of alot of their emotions and other things. So the cathan could feed on that energy, which more or less would have gone to the warp otherwise on their death.

    The story isn't straight.
    You won't know whats it about for the first few hours probably.
    But the setup is dearly needed. As it gives the necrons, which are most times envisioned as the bad guys. A needed paint of underlyng truths.

    I'm excited for more books in this series.

    To be said. It's not as funny as the shennanigans between the diviner and the collector. But it's packed with witty dialouges ^^.

    Erfrischend anders

    Die Necrons und damit Xenos als Hauptakteur werden hier wunderbar in Szene gesetzt. Das Imperium, mit all seiner Macht, tritt hier nur am Rande aber als eben jene erschreckende Gefahr auf, wie man es sonst nur aus imperialer Sicht kennt. Die tiefen der Necron Gesellschaft und die Dramen ihrer Existenz bekommen hier ein Gesicht das, anders als bei vielen anderen Xenos Büchern aus dem 40k Universum, mitfühlen lässt. Fast Menschlich wirken die Sorgen und Nöte der Protagonisten. Hat einfach Spaß gemacht und ich hoffe auf eine Fortsetzung!

    nothing of the necrons remains

    the whole timeline feels like a joke. no feeling of 60m years. necrons with feelings? the author is bending over backwards to sell a book and slaughtering the Necrons in the process
