Publisher's Summary

Book Four in the Ahriman Series

Ahriman's great quest is far from over. In the fourth instalment of John French's series, the Arch-Sorcerer attempts to bend time itself to his will in order to undo the curse that shattered his Legion.

LISTEN TO IT BECAUSE

Ahriman—one of the 41st Millennium's most notorious villains and compelling characters—faces the immortal necrons in a struggle over the very fabric of time, with his entire Legion hanging in the balance.

THE STORY

Doom has come upon the Thousand Sons. A plague of fire and dust stalks the Legion across time and space, born from the sorcerous Rubric that saved them from annihilation and damned them for eternity. One by one, the spirits of the Rubricae are vanishing from the prisons of their armour—and one by one, living sorcerers are cursed to take their place. 

Driven by the obsessive need to save his Legion and find redemption, Ahzek Ahriman seeks the time-altering technology of the forgotten necrons to overwrite his past mistakes. Shadowed by aeldari Harlequins, and with secrets and divisions spreading through his forces, the Arch-Sorcerer must find a new path to salvation—before all becomes dust.

Written by John French. Narrated by Mark Elstob.

meh..

I really liked the other Ahriman books, but this one seemed lacking. I lost track of what was going on multiple times, and felt parts were hard to follow. it was okay, but not great.

A little confusing with the wibbly wobbly timey whimey

I love this series. I’m on the verge of starting TSon’s army because of it. BL succeeding in their mission. The story got a bit confusing in places, but I think that was intentional, because time. I just wish there was more resolution at the end.

We want more Ahriman!

Loved it, will most likely listen again. Keep creating stories for Azek Ahriman, he is the best.

I'm sorry......., I could not get into this.

From the start, this seemed really slow & confusing, I found myself being distracted by other things after a solid 2 and a half hours, I have to admit, I had to give up. I put this down to a mixture of the narration and the way the story attempted to pan out.

I have listened and read well over to over 1000+ hours of Black library within the last 12-14 months, This felt like wading though treacle.

When Black Library does great, the lore and the stories are better than any fantasy Sci-fi genre,

I cannot help but think they are churning out books at a rate of industrial quantities, Please remember GW and Black Library, fans like quality over quantity.

I don't like posting bad reviews, as I have listened and read a good few John French books. A lot were great reads! like Solar War & Templar( a really good short by John). Unfortunately, this audio from the start just felt painful.

Narrator forgot character voices...

Narrator couldn't remember original character voices in earlier Ahriman audiobooks which was really jarring. At least Ahriman himself still sounded the same. Quality of writing not up to par with rest of Ahriman series. Cool ideas, completely "meh" execution.

John French knows how to write warp metaphysics

finally, an author who doesn't just say "unimaginable, unbelievable, inpercievable" for all descriptions of warp phenomena. This book has the best depiction of the sheer impossibility of the logic of the warp, and actually does justice in displaying the mind bending perspectives of the psykers who wield its power.
