Description

The Custodian Guard have stood watch over the Emperor's Palace on Terra since the foundation of the Imperium. Charged with protecting the Master of Mankind from all threats, within and without, their fearsome resolve is renowned throughout the galaxy, and their golden armour is the last thing that a would-be assassin or saboteur will ever see.

Alongside the Null-maidens of the Sisters of Silence, who are anathema to psykers and sorcerers alike, there is no threat to the Golden Throne that they alone cannot vanquish...until now.

Amazing work!

If I could I would have stood up and given Chris Wraight and the narrators a standing ovation. Absolutely brilliant in all fronts. I'm starting it ver immediately and I'm sure I'll pick up tons of things I missed.

Enjoyable from start to finish

Loved this story, it has a good cross between narrative and bolter open. I would suggest this to anyone wanting to know more of how Custodes and Null Maidens think.

stay away from the black library app

I purchased this audiobook along with another and an audio drama on the black library app... Due to unfortunate complications with the BL app I had to make the purchases again; I'll gladly do so seeing as though I loveed each one of my purchases that much!
I have listened to each one more than 10 times separately and may end up adding the "carrion throne" to my collection. 😏 I must be kidding myself I am definitely going to add it to my collection.

My collection is as follows:
"The master of mankind"
"The emperor's legion"
pretty soon hereafter the review "the carrion throne"
"The interrogation of Salvador Lermentov"

Great Story to Immerse yourself in.

Loved it, 40k is a beloved franchise to me and this was phenomenal. The characters are felt and the story is worked through in elegance.

Great to see Black Library on audible!

I liked the story more than I expected (didn’t know what to expect though). Chris Wraight is one of my favorite BL authors- & I think his writing helped carry the book. The characters have depth to them, but the action sequences are well written & not confusing.

I know a fair amount of the story that led up to this setting- so I can’t recommend just blindly diving in.

Awesome

Everything I’d hoped it be and more. With that said the “Sisters of Silence” part could get a lil boring at times but that was more than made up for by the rest, excellent writing and plot. Just good ol fashion Warhammer 40k.

Well written and solid performances.

I use audiobooks to help me sleep, so it takes me a while to get to the end. This was a very good story and the performances were great.

Geniale Sprecher und glaubhafte Charaktere...

Ich habe mich in erster Linie vom Cover leiten lassen. Custodians und Schwestern haben mich schon immer interessiert. Wie sich die Geschichte und die Charaktere entwickelten hat mich sowohl fasziniert als auch bewegt. Ein guter Einblick in alle Aspekte des gigantischen Imperiums der Menschheit, seinen Feinden und der zu menschlichen Begehrlichkeiten der Herrscher auf Terra. Besonders auch die verschiedenen Blickwinkel der handelnden Personen waren das was die Geschichte zu etwas besonderem machte. Eins der besten 40k Hörbücher das ich je gehört habe. Definitiv zu empfehlen.

Great in written form, even better to listen to!

Wraight is telling an interesting story following the Fall of Cadia, depicting the inner workings of the Imperium, the mighty Adeptus Custodes and the Sisters of Silence.
Every minute is worth listening to, the narrators embody their counterparts brilliantly. All in all a great work, both from Chris Wraight and all 3 narrators.

Amazing book and even better actors!

Listened to the whole book in one sitting. Something i hadn't even done with the Abnett books. Would definitely recommend for 40k fans.

What all 40k novels should be like

I will keep it concise:
- Well developed characters
- Sister of Silence
- Terran politician
- Custodes
- Well developed story

The story is told from the perspective of the 3 characters and is thus informed and influenced by each respective character. The event in which they are all involved gives the listener deep insight into the inner workings of the Imperium and the multitude of factions therein. At first I thought this book would be all about politics and the dealings of the 3 characters but, without spoiling, the story is so much more interesting.

While I started with Horus Heresy novels and got used to the story-telling there (character introduction, obstacle, dramatic build up, huge fight, good/bad ending) I really enjoyed this book much much more. It has more depth and is more immersive than almost all the Horus Heresy Novels I read so far (apart from Thousand Sons - damn that book is awesome).

All in all, you not only should but MUST listen to/read this book.
