The Custodian Guard have stood watch over the Emperor's Palace on Terra since the foundation of the Imperium. Charged with protecting the Master of Mankind from all threats, within and without, their fearsome resolve is renowned throughout the galaxy, and their golden armour is the last thing that a would-be assassin or saboteur will ever see. Alongside the Null-maidens of the Sisters of Silence, who are anathema to psykers and sorcerers alike, there is no threat to the Golden Throne that they alone cannot vanquish... until now.
So not a sequel to Carrion Throne but rather a stand-alone adventure featuring the Custodes and Sisters of Silence in modern day 40k, this is a must buy for me and with that incredibly gorgeous cover there's no doubt i'll be pre-ordering that the very second it's available!!

Those LE's are expensive but worthy for me. I like books. And what I like about these as well is paper. It's thick and feels great when turning pages.

The limited edition halved in price? It didn't for me. Which edition did you buy?

Whats the balance fighting to dialogue/story?

I'm really hoping we get a good look again at another aspect of imperial society, not just a fight on earth. But I have great faith in Chris!

id say two thirds story, to one third battles. Theres lots of politicizing with the high lords of terra, and a great look at the highlords in 40k, the state of the custodians in 40k and the state of the sisters of silence. Theres 3 story arcs, which eventually converge at the second siege of terra and the aftermath. Viewed from the eyes of the senate doorkeeper, a custodian and a sister of silence.

Sounds great! Can't wait. I ordered the limited ed, so I will likely have to wait until everyone has read the book before they get round to sending it out. Glad it's going to be worth the wait though
