Necropolis audiobook free
Meh. It was ok but I had a hard time picking this book up every time I put it down which is the opposite of how the other gaunt’s books are. There was just to much choppy scenes between characters that didn’t really matter and the main character(s). I had to keep checking to see if I was reading the same book for the first 3 chapters because that’s how long it took to even bring up the ghosts. Still can’t wait to read the next one though
Necropolis audiobook Series Gaunt’s Ghosts
This book tells the collective story of how humanity can rise up from the deepest depths of despair to grab victory from the closing jaws of defeat, rallying the besieged to acts of heroism, self-sacrifice, and glory.
Reading this book reminded me of WWII accounts of cities holding fast against invading armies. The individual tales of courage and devotion to duty in the face of overwhelming odds, were uplifting and awe-inspiring. It strengthened the respect and gratitude felt towards those realworld veterans of our countries past wars. For those of you familiar with WH40K, you will thoroughly enjoy the battle sequences and the “fluff” included regarding the overall Crusade and the seemingly small part played by the Tanith First-and-Only. The descriptions of the Hive city and its vastness are wondrous, making me wish some ambitious director (Peter *cough* Jackson *cough*) would take this series to their hearts and bring it to the big screen. I would thoroughly enjoy watching this on film. It would be like taking HBO’s “Band of Brothers”, George Lucas’s “Star Wars”, and Ridley Scott’s “Gladiator” and melding them into a 7-8 part mini-series or a series of movies 2 1/2 to 3 hours long! The way Dan Abnett brings us into the individual experiences of front line soldiers, helps bring to us both the horrible carnage and waste of war, as well as the tremendous courage, fortitude, and devotion of duty and faith that are the heart and soul of every trooper of the Imperial Guard (and PDF of Verghast)! The beginning of the book is wonderfully written, first bringing us into the local politics and what appears like a simple conflict between two rival Hive cities, then accelerating the story along as war breaks out and the stalwart, but horribly outclassed defenders are forced to call for aid from off planet. This whole segment of the book is more like a prologue, as the actual story begins with the arrival of the Imperial Forces. To give us perspective, it is immediately made apparent that the Tanith First-and-Only are perceived as a mere specialist regiment of stealth troops, given low status among the other higher profile regiments of the task force assigned to Verghast. As you might expect, their significance changes dramatically, paralleling the prominence of their commander. Now, if I could just find a way for them to work better on the game table! (But that’s for another forum) Whether you enjoy war stories, Sci-Fi, WH40K, or simply a well-written story with well-developed characters and an engaging plot – you WILL enjoy this book.
Audiobook Necropolis by Dan Abnett
An amazing and surprisng work! I was only just introduced to the Warhammer series and I expected easy-reading scifi schlock for preteens. Instead, Abnett’s work made me cheer out loud and weep bitter tears and feel genuine invested in the tale. Even through the distant mirror of the jingoistic setting Abnett demonstrates a deep understanding of the motivations and experience of veterans and survivors of war. I cannot recommend this series enough and this novel in particular feels like a masterpiece. I am excited to introduce Abnett’s WH40K works to my pompous “literary fiction” -snob friends. For the Emperor!
Audio Necropolis narrated by Toby Longworth
The first book introduced the Ghost’s, the second book fleshed out the troops, now the third book throws them into a fight that once it gets going rarely lets up.
A hive city falls under siege and Gaunt’s Ghost’s are sent to help defend it. The first 40 pages or so are spent giving you the lay of the land with the hive city and its citizens, then it’s pretty much bloody knuckles and broken teeth from there on out. Awesome combat and some interesting plot threads create a well paced story that engages all the way to the end.
Great stuff for fans of Warhammer 40k’s Imperial Guard!

If you’ve read the previous books, be prepared for a whole new experience for Gaunt’s ghosts, as they along with other units of the Imperial Guard, are tasked with defending a gigantic city. This book is a full blown siege, all one massive battle which won’t stop until the very end when one side is completely annihilated. As always Gaunt must also remain on watch for treachery and deceit within his own allies. It’s highly recommended that you read the other two previous books first, otherwise the sheer bulk of characters may get you very lost. This novel could be the best yet that I’ve read out of the first three in the series, I’m starting to wonder how the author can seemingly raise the standard and surpass my expectations each time and I am eager for more in order to see if this trend continues.
