Default Eye of Night/Hand of Darkness audio dramas

Black Library - Audio Subscription

A week of brand new audio!
The galaxy has changed. Primarch Guilliman, back from the dead, sends Inquisitor Greyfax on a mission to retrieve an ancient artefact, and requests the aid of the Ynnari to secure another. Can these dispaeare forces claim the Eye of Night and Hand of Darkness for the Imperium?

It's the first Black Library fiction set after the Gathering Storm and showcases some of the new characters from that event, as well as hinting at the state of the galaxy in the wake of the Fall of Cadia, Fracture of Biel-Tan and Rise of the Primarch.

The primarch of the Ultramarines, Roboute Guilliman, has returned from death and leads the Imperium of Man as its Lord Commander. With a vast warp storm raging throughout the galaxy, he seeks clues to its origins and how to end it – and such clues may lie with two artefacts from the long-ago Gothic War. Gathering his allies, Guilliman sends them to seize these two prizes from the forces of Chaos. Katarinya Greyfax, servant of the Inquisition, seeks an ancient traitor rumoured to know the location of the Eye of Night, while the aeldari Yvraine and her Ynnari venture into the Black Library and beyond in search of the Hand of Darkness.

While I have to pass on audio due to my hearing issues, the content of these have me intrigued. As per the statement, its Black Library's first publications set post The Gathering Storm.

From what I recall, Abby went at great lenghts to secure the above relics, one of them once hidden on the ratling homeworld and using the planetkiller to dig it out. So my thought is that they were used to control the Blackstone Fortresses.

Edit: Added another link ontop. Intriguing, Moriana gets involved. And Mortarion have one of the relics. Might be what angers him enough to erupt into realspace like an overripe zit.
