The first of my Sisters of Battle shorts for Black Library introduces Sister Adamanthea, a zealot driven by a twisted sense of faith and with a prodigious talent for violence...
Charismatic missionary Marcus Amouris must convert a tribe of heathen savages to the glorious creed of the Emperor, but something in the forest beyond the village is preying upon his newfound disciples. Eager to win the tribe over and prove his worth, Marcus summons the Adepta Sororitas, the Sisters of Battle, led by the brutish Sister Adamanthea, a legend of the Order of the Valorous Heart. Marcus must guide Adamanthea and her squad to the so-called ‘City of Whispers’, a mysterious ruin at the heart of the forest, a place said to be the haunt of worse than ghosts! Will Sister Adamanthea’s ferocity prove a match for what lurks within or will Marcus’s vanity prove the undoing of them all?
"I am Sister Adamanthea, Dominion Superior.
I am told you need me to kill something."
"A pleasure to read a story which really shows the Sisters of Battle as a characterful, powerful force... Plenty of action balanced out by a strong sense of atmosphere all wrapped up in a smart concept."
Track of Words
"What makes Whispers stand out is the excellent execution and masterful representation of the Adepta Sororitas... Worley has a vivid, descriptive style, and he brings these stoic, lethal ladies to life... utterly engrossing and exhilarating... Top-notch stuff."
