On the world of Verghast, a grinding war between two hive cities — one loyal to the Imperium, the other fallen to the worship of the Dark Gods — is bolstered by the forces of the Imperial Guard.

This book tells the collective story of how humanity can rise up from the deepest depths of despair to grab victory from the closing jaws of defeat, rallying the besieged to acts of heroism, self-sacrifice, and glory.
Reading this book reminded me of WWII accounts of cities holding fast against invading armies.
Necropolis by Dan Abnett
The individual tales of courage and devotion to duty in the face of overwhelming odds, were uplifting and awe-inspiring. It strengthened the respect and gratitude felt towards those realworld veterans of our countries past wars. For those of you familiar with WH40K, you will thoroughly enjoy the battle sequences and the “fluff” included regarding the overall Crusade and the seemingly small part played by the Tanith First-and-Only. I would thoroughly enjoy watching this on film. The way Dan Abnett brings us into the individual experiences of front line soldiers, helps bring to us both the horrible carnage and waste of war, as well as the tremendous courage, fortitude, and devotion of duty and faith that are the heart and soul of every trooper of the Imperial Guard and PDF of Verghast!
The beginning of the book is wonderfully written, first bringing us into the local politics and what appears like a simple conflict between two rival Hive cities, then accelerating the story along as war breaks out and the stalwart, but horribly outclassed defenders are forced to call for aid from off planet. This whole segment of the book is more like a prologue, as the actual story begins with the arrival of the Imperial Forces. To give us perspective, it is immediately made apparent that the Tanith First-and-Only are perceived as a mere specialist regiment of stealth troops, given low status among the other higher profile regiments of the task force assigned to Verghast.
As you might expect, their significance changes dramatically, paralleling the prominence of their commander. Now, if I could just find a way for them to work better on the game table! But that’s for another forum Whether you enjoy war stories, Sci-Fi, WH40K, or simply a well-written story with well-developed characters and an engaging plot – you WILL enjoy this book.
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. An amazing and surprisng work! I was only just introduced to the Warhammer series and I expected easy-reading scifi schlock for preteens. Instead, Abnett’s work made me cheer out loud and weep bitter tears and feel genuine invested in the tale. Even through the distant mirror of the jingoistic setting Abnett demonstrates a deep understanding of the motivations and experience of veterans and survivors of war.
I cannot recommend this series enough and this novel in particular feels like a masterpiece. I am excited to introduce Abnett’s WH40K works to my pompous “literary fiction” -snob friends. Once more Gaunt and his Ghosts find themselves fighting against impossible odds as they are sent the hive city of Vervunhive, which is under attack from what seems to be one of the hive’s greedy rivals. As in all of the Warhammer 40K books I’ve so far read, this one is full of mind-numbing violence and cruelty.
The desperate plight of the common people as their city is decimated around them and disease and panic spread is painful because of its realistic feel. The greed and brutality of the priveledged and powerful is disgusting.
The heroism and bravery of the Ghosts and the Vervunhive military is inspiring. Overall, this is a fun book to read that doesn’t really do much as far as evolving the overall story of Gaunt’s Ghosts.
The story has a different feel than the previous books, with Abnett focusing in on a single major event and including a lot of side characters, each with their own desperate situations. As always, Gaunt ends up confronting and barely surviving an officer of Chaos, as well as navigating the convoluted inter-Imperial Guard politics.
The first book introduced the Ghost’s, the second book fleshed out the troops, now the third ahnett throws them into a fight that once it gets going rarely lets up.
A hive city falls under siege and Gaunt’s Ghost’s are sent to help defend it. The first 40 pages can so are spent giving you the lay of the land with the hive city and its citizens, then it’s pretty necropolix bloody knuckles and nevropolis teeth from there on out. Awesome combat and some interesting plot threads create a well paced story that engages all the way to the end.
Great stuff for fans of Warhammer 40k’s Imperial Guard! One person found this helpful. Space ships, space guns and space monthers. So hard to read with your eyes closed.
