Publisher's Summary

An Adepta Sororitas audiobook.

Valorous Heart. Our Martyred Lady. Bloody Rose. These names of Adepta Sororitas orders are famed across the galaxy, as are the Battle Sisters who serve the emperor's will.

Listen to it because: the three tales in this volume encompass the bold actions of the Sisterhood across the Imperium as they defend Humanity in the God-Emperor's name.

The story: to die in the name of the God-Emperor of Mankind is to live eternal, and none are more willing to bleed in his name than the Adepta Sororitas - the Sisters of Battle. The Book of Martyrs charts the deaths of these exemplars. Sister Ishani of the Orders Hospitaller, serving alongside the death-obsessed Valorous Heart, tends to her Ecclesiarchy charges as something inhuman hunts the fields. Sister Anarchia of the Order of Our Martyred Lady, taken captive by the vile T’au Empire, seeks to teach her interrogators what it truly means to be one of the faithful. On a regressed Imperial world, Sister Superior Laurelyn of the Order of the Bloody Rose reinforces the beleaguered defenders against a familiar foe turned anew by the Great Rift. And in the age of the Indomitus Crusade, with the galaxy split in two, only one thing is certain - there will be no shortage of martyrs to fill the pages of this ancient tome.

Written by Danie Ware, Alec Worley and Phil Kelly. Narrated by Harry Myers. Runtime 11 hours one minute.

Hit and Miss

The narrator for the prologue did an absolutely terrible job, or perhaps it was the audio tech that threw it together at the end of the day. Everywhere you expect a pause in a sentence where a comma would be it’s smashed together, and with little to no change it tone, it sounds like someone reading off a sheet as fast as possible at the last minute to get a paycheck.

The first two stories are decent additions to WH, especially Phil Kelly’s Tau story. Narration one these was good as well, not stellar, but solid.

The last story was a complete mess from start to finish. Boring story, forgettable characters, just bad from a technical writing standpoint. There are at least three different parts that get so repetitive I had to quit listening for a day. The narrator doesn’t help, she just doesn’t have the range to produce distinct and believable voices for multiple characters, she over-emotes in places, and her “yelling” voice sounds like a shrill 8 year old. I would definitely avoid the last story.

Stories Good, Voicework Not So Much

I enjoyed the series of stories but struggled to get past the lackluster voice work compared to other 40k stories.

Could have been a 5 overall but for one thing.

The first two stories were great; loved the plots, the readers voices, and their narrative abilities. However, the last story I couldn't get through due to the breathy inhalations of the reader. I started to focus on when I would hear the next inhale and could not pay attention to the story.

The last story was kind of hard to get through. It was kind of boring.

The Only Good Heretic Is A Dead Heretic.

Amazing anthology which captures the faith and zeal of the sisters of battle perfectly. Amazing first and second story wasn't as invested with the third yet was still very good however seemed a little rushed by the end and I couldn't get as invested with the character. Got to say though the first story is my favourite,
