Aaron Dembski-Bowden's "Throne of Lies"
The beginning of a new month means new releases from the Black Library. First off is the audio book "Throne of Lies" by Aaron Dembski-Bowden. Sadly, Shelfari didn't actually have a picture for this title on their page, so the above is taken from the Black library site. This is a nice progression in the audio dramas the Black Library has put out in that it utilizes two vocal talents, John Banks and Beth Chalmers. "Throne of Lies" takes place after Soul Hunter and is an attempt by the Night Lords to reclaim the recording M'Shen made of her execution of Konrad Kurze. It's an enjoyable story, with good effects and equally good vocal talents. The most refreshing aspect was not having every character defined by nuances of graveliness in their voices. Fans of Soul Hunter will definitely enjoy this one, as will general 40k fans. Up next for review will be Nemesis, hopefully sometime by the weekend, for now enjoy.
