Any 40k audio book recommendations?

Looking for some audio book recommendations, I know Eldar books are rare, so something involving the Eldar at least would be great :)

Whoops, missed this!

I don't know if you've read Warzone: Valedor, Mage?

You probably wouldn't think much by the title of the book, but it is straight up the best Aeldari Craftworlds novel I've ever read. There is so much lore about the  Aedlari of Iyanden and Biel-Tan in this book, their societies, and a lot of cool stuff about Prince Yriel and the Sunblitz Raiders, the battle of Iyanden against Hive Fleet Kraken (?), and then fighting Kraken and Leviathan on the world of Valedor. You even learn some stuff about the wraithguard.

I will check to see if this is an audiobook.

It involves no eldar, but the siege of terra series is great as audiobook.

Hey Mage,

Check out Asurmen: The Darker Road audio drama by Gav Thorpe.

Just listened to it, and it's about an hour and 15 to 30 minutes long.

It was awesome!

Do you have a linky for this? I looked on Amazon and Black Library, but couldn't find it. (Apparently I'm Google challenged.)

I'll take the bad writing if it comes with good information! :D

Sorry, just now saw this, Kage2020!

Here you go!

Black Library - Valedor (eBook)

And you'll be surprised! The writing isn't bad at all in my opinion. I actually thought it was great! It's one of the most memorable 40k novels I've read from several years ago. Give it a whirl!
