Every two weeks we read a new book in the WH40k universe and discuss it on our podcast. We invite you to read along with us and join in on our conversation via comments, Twitter, email, or vox cast.
From the back of the book:
Before the being called the Emperor revealed Himself, before the rise of the aeldari, before the necrontyr traded their flesh for immortal metal, the world was born in violence.
Even when they inhabited bodies of flesh, Trazyn the Infinite and Orikan the Diviner were polar opposites. Trazyn, a collector of historical oddities, presides over a gallery full of the most dangerous artefacts – and people – of the galactic past. Orikan, a chronomancer without peer, draws zodiacs that predict and manipulate the future. But when an artefact emerges that may hold the key to the necrons’ next evolution, these two obsessives enter a multi-millennia game of cat and mouse that ends civilisations, reshapes timelines, and changes both forever. As riddles unwind and ancient secrets are revealed, the question remains: will their feud save the necron race or destroy it?
Questions to ponder after reading The Infinite and the Divine:
- Did you like the book?
- Which parts were the most awesome?
- Trazyn vs. Orikan. Whose philosophy do you like more? Which character do you like more?
- We learned so much about the Necrons in this book. What surprised you or stood out?
- Were you surprised by the tomb’s contents?
- What do you make of Vishani? What is her angle beyond keeping the crypt safe?
- What are the implications of Trazyn’s new pet? Why on earth does he want to travel into the rift?
- When we think back to The Great Work, how does this further shape the universe?
