The Long Night

Durée : 42min
The Dark Angels and the Night Lords fought one another to a bloody stalemate during the Thramas Crusade and, though the Lion eventually claimed victory, it left both Legions scattered and under-strength. Jago Sevatarion, First Captain of the Night Lords, languishes in a gaol cell in the heart of Ultramar. Far from a spent force, the Night Lords must consider where their loyalties lie, and what path they will take in the days and months to come.

The Long Night est un audio qui ne fait avancer en rien la trame des Night Lords, ni de la saga. En revanche, A.D.B. prouve une nouvelle fois son efficacité quel que soit le format. Le doublage est excellent et les surprises scénaristiques maîtrisées. L'auteur nous rappelle que Sevatarion es...

Butcher's Nails

Audio Drama : 75 min
The primarch Angron: gladiator-king and Horus’s lunatic attack dog. Never having hidden his resentment for his brothers, he now carves a bloody swathe through the galaxy in the Warmaster’s name, with the Heresy providing a convenient excuse to indulge his love of brutal warfare. When they are tasked with a secretive mission alongside the Word Bearers Legion, the World Eaters’ violent tendencies soon attract the attention of xenos raiders, troubled by the portents surrounding the primarch’s berserk fury and his ultimate destiny as ‘the Blood God’s son’.

Aaron Dembski-Bowden s'attèle ici à un véritable travail de sape pour son roman consacré aux World Eaters, bien que non indispensable à la lecture de ce dernier, Butcher's Nails apporte un véritable plus pour appréhender pleinement Félon.

Throne of Lies

Audio Drama : 70 min
The Night Lords are among the most feared Chaos Space Marines in the universe.They prey on their victims from the shadows, stalking the faithful of the FalseImperium in their ultimate quest to destroy the Emperor. The warband of the Exalted, travelling aboard The Covenant of Blood, are recovering from the events at Crythe Primus. But their dark crusade against the loyal Imperial forces continues, and they will leave a trail of blood and terror behind them.

Un audio agréable à l'écoute, qui n'a rien d'indispensable mais qui offre une anecdote intéressante entre deux romans. Quelques pistes nécessitant d'être creusées sont ouvertes, une révélation finale tout de même conséquente.
