Terminal Overkill: Necromunda Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
A Necromunda novel.
When full-scale gang war erupts between Houses Goliath and Escher, Brielle of the Wild Hydras finds herself on the run and desperate for revenge....
Listen to it because....
Delve into the darkest reaches of the underhive in a tale of vengeance, ambition and gruesome deeds from Necromunda's underhive.
In the polluted, sprawling hive cities of Necromunda, life is short. From the decadent heights of the Spire to the murderous deeps of the underhive, those on the climb must be bold and brutal, or face a violent end.
When the barbarous Fettnir, Goliath overlord of the Chemfall Butchers, turns his attention to Escher territory, the result is nothing short of a massacre.
Brielle of the Wild Hydras escapes the slaughter and is cast into the deepest levels of the underhive.
Determined to avenge her family, Brielle vows that she will end those responsible, but to reach Fettnir and the bounty hunter who murdered her mother, she must first survive...and the darkness is full of horrors.

A bad ass female lead in WH40k should be a strong one for me, but the writing is weak, so many of the characters don't interest me much, and there are certainly a lot of hanging items that you get no closure for.
I think part of it is the main character survives by luck so often, even for fiction it gets to be too much.
Shocked by how this went for me, as not at all what I was expecting.
The story is satisfying but i do wish it was a bit longer. I would divide this book into four acts and, as others have said, the final act of the book feels rushed. this is a gritty tale of survival that spans years. some action, some horror, some really gut wrenching moments. i enjoyed it enough to hope for a sequel especially given the open ending.

The characters, next to Brielle, aren't overly memorable. Because of how her story progresses she spends a lot of her time moving from place to place and doesn't really build a gang you get to know and like with her. While she does found the Black Spiders near the end of the story most of the details we learn about them are surface level and this was a missed opportunity. That being said, this is her story being told from her perspective so in that case, it makes sense.
The plot is that of a revenge thriller and a riches, to rags, to riches story painted in blood and is enjoyable. However, there are certain cool elements within the story that are never fully explored. Her twin brother Reiko, for example, an anomaly as far as the lore goes is never explained in any meaningful way and it was a real missed opportunity to not explore how he, a fully functioning male member of House Escher, feels and acts in this world. Likewise, the Psyker Solomon is an interesting concept and character that gets left behind when Brielle moves on. In this case, I reckon it's more playing into the fact Brielle is no hero and while she may not like the insane cult leader with mind-melding powers eating compressed fate from sewage and garbage (yes REALLY. It's called Scrape) she's not going to stick he neck out to kill him.
As stated above this is a fun book to read if you're looking for a dark, gruesome and fast-paced tale of revenge in the Warhammer 40-K Universe.
