Publisher 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.

Excellent Insight Into Necrons

I loved the characters as well as the voice narration; every character felt like an individual. If you play Necrons in 40k they sometimes feel like robot zombies without personality. This audiobook gave them a great deal of ‘humanity’. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Great book, great narrator!

Terrific book for any Necron fan. Nate does an awesome job of adding more light and character to the Necrontyr/Necron culture. Some of it even before bio-transference. Richard Reed did equally as great of a job narrating this book as he did with The Infinite And The Divine and War In The Museum.
