Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have yet had the time to even start the Soul Drinkers series and I keep hearing about some bizarre Necron in one of the books. So if anyone feels like not, not ruining the surprise, feel free to leave a post or two
As far as I can tell all they've been saying is that there are Necrons in it...
It's not a spoiler, they're on the front cover and show up like 50 pages in, and were never mentioned in any of the other books in the series
On the flip side, back on the rumor thread it's said that some hints about next codex Crons are hidden in books, and after reading this one, and finding it had things that we've never seen the 'Crons do before, I think this might be a good source for people that can't wait for the codex update.
(and just saying that they have new things isn't a spoiler either)
But I do recommend that you read them, they're pretty good, even if it does have some "where'd that come from"(read wtf) moments in the series.
EDIT: read the original post again, now I can see that you're actually asking for the spoilers, sorry, but I don't do stuff like that, especially since it looksl like you're planning on reading them at some point, especially not in the forum where anyone could trip and fall over it. If you really want it, PM me and I'll give you the short version

If the "new stuff" in the soul drinker book is to be believed, there aren't many changes really.
There was an immense "siege machine" that IIRC was some sort of immense beetle that just devoured everything in it's path, and collected slaves for the Necrons (storing them inside itself on racks of all things). Didn't seem to have any external weapons, but just ground over walls, and was filled with Immortals.
Other than that, was some Crazy Necron Destroyer Lord at the end, which didn't really seem to have any one special ability over our normal Destroyer lords, just looked cooler. However it was a Tomb Lord and apparently had some sort of Mind Control over the entire rest of the Necrons, sitting back and mentally commanding them all what to do.
Oh and apparently Necron technology can be hacked by a techmarine via mind jack (I demand melted brains if a human were to do that with a Necron Network receiver, Space Marine or not)
