Publisher's Summary

A Warhammer Horror novel.

Dark and terrible secrets may be found lurking within the cities of the Old World and the savage wilderness that surrounds them. Genevieve Dieudonné, vampire heroine of Drachenfels, battles to outwit adversaries both magical and mundane, human and beast, in this series of three linked novellas: Stage Blood, The Cold Stark House and Unicorn Ivory.  

Listen to it because:

One of the masters of modern horror fiction turns his hand to a trio of terrifying tales set in the world-that-was. If you enjoyed Drachenfels and want to see more of the vampire heroine Genevieve, this is your next stop. 

Description: 

There are many secrets in the dark places of the Old World. From the cities of the Empire, where men huddle together in defiance of the darkness that sweeps across the land, to the vast, savage forests that house all manner of terrible beasts, everywhere you look there is a dark tale or ancient legend waiting to be unearthed. For the vampire Genevieve Dieudonné, several of these ancient horrors and blood-soaked nightmares are about to come to light, as she is plunged into battles for her life and her very soul across three linked novellas. 

Embarking on an odyssey of self-discovery, she must face monsters and magicians, intrigue and evil. Her journey takes her from the depths of an old theater to an accursed mansion under a deadly Gothic spell, and finally to the hunt of a savage unicorn mare through haunted forests.  

Written by Kim Newman.

Narrated by Antonia Beamish.

Book 1 is great ,Book 2 is meh, Book 3 is good

So this is a collection of 3 stories written by Kim Newman, who wrote the last Genevieve book as well and like with Drachanfels she knocked the first book out of the park.
Well written, very similar feel to her previous work and she is much improved on writing supporting characters.

The second 2 is where it begins to go off the rails with most character interactions having some sexual aspect to them rather than the survival, political, etc motivations of her earlier work.
This follows on in the third book, which pains me to say because the plot was great, the pacing was spot on and the contrasting characters were awesome.
TW
In the last 10 minutes of the 3rd book, she assaults, rapes and then kills a man.
I'm not sure if Newman is trying to show Genevieve's descent into the darkness but it made me feel sick.
I don't want to throw away the whole book for the sake of a bad scene but if this isn't your thing, you might want to skip it.

Antonia Beamish is working on her voices and is making strides but they feel like caricatures now, as if she's overcorrecting for them not sounding different enough before.

Another great Warhammer fantasy book. More please.

This novel is a collection of short stories following the events in the Drachenfels novel. I really enjoyed this book and I'm looking forward to the remaining two books in the series when they are released on audible. the story was fun and the narrator did a great job. The only problem was that there no more novels presently for Warhammer fantasy other than the last two Gotrek and Felix novels. Please, Audible and Black Library put out more of the Warhammer fantasy audiobooks, other than the Age of Sigmar and 40k, I would love to listen to the rest of Gotrek and Felix or the Brunner series.

I love Genevieve

I want more of this character. She is by far one of the most interesting vampires I've had the pleasure of reading about.

More of an Anthology

The first story of the book led me to believe that this would be a good follow up to Drachenfels, and indeed it does give a good bit of epilogue to that story. After the first third however, it becomes more of an anthology of loosely connected stories with our resident vampire as the string holding it all together. Though this starts out well enough, it runs out of steam rather quickly and made the grind to the finish rather difficult. Still, you have the classic Warhammer weirdness, so it's not entirely without charm or merit.

Thrilling and enthralling

I loved this piece.
The narration was spectacular.
The writing brought you into the minds and emotions of the characters. From the theatre, to a haunted house, to the woods. An excellent variety of well described settings.

Missing a purpose for the story

A bit dull and missing the overall purpose/red thread. The story introduces many characters, but none of real importance and forgets the main character a lot.

A well told audio book.

Excellent narration. The stories themselves were enjoyable, although you need to pay attention during the second one. There are a lot of characters. Antonia Beamish comes up with some terrific voices I will see what other novels she has narrated on audible.

Thoroughly enjoyable

Three novellas with a link to the previous tale and also to previous books, very good but no Drachenfels or beast in velvet, my only complaint being I would have liked more Filthy Harald in any or all of the stories
