Publisher's Summary

A Warhammer Horror Story 

Follow in the footsteps of Rudgard Howe, an enforcer cadet who, while on their first mission and embroiled in an embittered succession battle back home, uncovers a heinous sanguinary cult....

Listen to it because: in the grim darkness of the far future, horror lies in the most unlikely of places, as a routine investigation becomes something all the more sinister.

The story: on the capital world of Potence, young enforcer cadet Rudgard Howe is caught up in a bitter internecine feud to inherit his father's position of chief enforcer. As the tithe fleets approach, he is sent on his first mission to ensure that the planet's distant agri-facilities fulfil their quotas to the god-emperor. Farmed with serfs and managed by ex-Militarum soldiers, the agri-facilities are places of shocking brutality and hopelessness. But when he is sent to the outlying farmstead of Thorsarbour, Rudgard discovers a community where the crops are left to rot as the inhabitants indulge in the bloody ecstasy of a sanguinary cult. As Rudgard imposes the strict Lex Imperialis upon the farmstead, he begins to uncover a place where sanity is rapidly slipping. Just a single step into his nightmarish mission though, a series of cruel deaths threatens to dismantle everything he has ever known about the Imperium, his faith in the emperor and the strength of his very soul.

Written by Justin D Hill. Narrated by Matthew Hunt.

Horrific not horror

The casual and callous treatment of the workers, indentured and enslaved, the whimsical notions of fratricide, there is no worse horror in WH40K, Howe is no more likeable or heroical in this book than his last appearance, the author has told a simple tale but told it well, the narrator took a bit of getting used to but once I did I enjoyed his style

Is this a horror ?

Can't really call this story a horror. However found this enjoyable. I would more call this a crime novel/thriller with a spooky twist. The narration was great. I like 40k fiction that is away from the typical battlefield type stories. my god being alive in the imperium is a brilliantly depressing place which the narrator hit the nail on the head with. It's a good short story, ideal if you didn't want a marathon session, the suspense in the audio book was very good. Really enjoyed it!
