BoLS Book Club: Custodians, Sisters, and Greyfax Oh My

3 Minute Read
Sep 17 2017

Two new releases, two great team-ups.

That’s right, team-ups are the name of the game in the latest batch of new releases from the Black Library. Custodes and Sororitas, Greyfax and the Grey Knights,  it’s a regular Hana Barbera cartoon crossover spectacular over here. First up, we have team Latin, who are charged with dealing with a threat to the Golden Throne.

Though to be fair, a lot of things are threatening to a chair.


Watchers of the Throne: the Emperor’s New Groove Legion – $27/$15.99

A Warhammer 40,000 novel
The Adeptus Custodes are the Emperor’s praetorian guard, the defenders of Terra and watchers over the Golden Throne. But when a threat arises, they and their Sisters of Silence allies may find themselves pressed almost beyond endurance…

Never before have the the Adeptus Custodes, the guardians of the Emperor himself, been the stars of a Warhammer 40,000 novel. This is your chance to find out all about how they work in the dark millennium.

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.

Eye of Night$9.99

A Warhammer 40,000 audio drama

Tasked with a mission by Roboute Guilliman, Inquisitor Greyfax and a bodyguard of Grey Knights travel into the Eye of Terror in search of an ancient enemy of the Imperium.

It’s the Black Library debut of Inquisitor Greyfax in a tale that ties into the background from the Battlefleet Gothic game, making it a rare treat for old and new Warhammer 40,000 fans alike!

Inquisitor Greyfax and a retinue of incorruptible Grey Knights are sent on a mission by the reborn Primarch Guilliman to recover the Eye of Night, a fabled artefact of Ruin that could weaken the Great Rift. It will be no easy task as Greyfax – with the aid of a long dead inquisitor – must journey into the Eye of Terror itself and challenge a traitor of a truly ancient pedigree, the crone Moriana.

Written by Gav Thorpe. Running time 64 minutes. Performed by Annie Aldington, Gareth Armstrong, Cliff Chapman, Steve Conlin, Emma Gregory, Matthew Hunt, Jonathan Keeble and Melvyn Rawlinson.
