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:
In the darkness beyond the galaxy, there are monsters. Some swim closer to the light, drawn by the beacon that is the Astronomican, while others stalk the Void, predators in the dark. The Carcharodons have hunted for millennia, but now they are drawn into a new blackness… the Dark City of the drukhari itself. Commorragh.
For a thousand years, Chaplain Tangata Manu has searched for a relic lost under his watch – an ancient thing, once charged into the keeping of the Forgotten One himself. But at the brink of seeing his hunt fulfilled and the relic returned, it is stolen from under him. Now, if Tangata would see his honour restored, he must lead his hunt against some of the vilest predators the galaxy has ever seen, before they can turn the artefact to their own purposes…
Questions to ponder after reading Silent Hunters:
- Did you like the book?
- What parts stood out?
- What do you think about the Carcharadons as a chapter? Did you like them?
- Were you invested in Iraia’s and Jona’s story? Did you like Iraia’s character arc? What do you make of Jona?
- Commoragh is lovely this time of year. Did you like Albert’s take on the drukhari vs. Reynolds? What part of Commoragh made you cringe the most?
- Do you understand the Void Glass? Do you agree with Tangata Manu’s end assessment?
- Was the ending satisfying?
