Publisher's Summary

As the War for the Realm of Life continues, Lord-Castellant Lorrus Grymn leads the battered remnants of the Steel Souls warrior chamber against the sargasso-citadels of the Verdant Bay. The Hallowed Knights claim victory, but at a terrible cost - Grymn is lost to Realm of Chaos. 

Now Gardus, newly reforged and fresh from the destruction of the Scabrous Sprawl, must lead his warriors into the foetid heart of Nurgle's realm in search of the Lord-Castellant, where they must once more brave the horrors of the Realm of Decay....

Well Written Hammerporn

Reynolds has the rare talent, shared to date only by C. L. Werner, to write Nurgle spectacularly. That makes it a shame that he completely neuters him in the same breath. It's well-written no doubt (outside of the Deus ex machina), but it's also noblebright hammerporn where the good guy wins with no loss or even real damage sustained. They go against a God in his own realm and come out shining and pretty with a good story to tell back at home with all of their friends.

Unless your a stormcast fan. This can be meh...

The battles are so one sided in the stormcasts's favor that it removes any sense of danger for the characters that would normally make these kind of books interesting or suspenseful. Feels like a missed opportunity. I gave it 3 stars solely for the reader. I loved the way he voiced Gutrot.

Soooo One Sided!

I am sitting here in awe at just how one sided this book was. I really like black library books but this was single handedly the worst one Ive ever experienced. Narrator was great as always, but unless you want to listen to a story about the stormcasts bullying their way through Nurgles garden, stay far far away. Its a boring and fairly repetitive story and I never felt that any of the named stormcasts were ever in any danger....... just really bad

Predictable, not worth my time.

Go replay an old videogame or bing-watch cartoons with the time you save: it will be just as productive.

Great performance, book gets a bit slow in middle

As the title says, this book has a great start and a great ending. overall it provides an interesting look at the Stormcast as a whole. Lots of details! Worth it

another great book<br />

I'm very much enjoying my journey into the warhammer universe. I feel that John banks does an outstanding job narrating.. (however at times I feel like characters sounds so close that I'll rewind to figure out who is talking.. ) but 1 man can only do so many voices and pull it off, so I give him grace and still consider him to be by far one of my favorite narrators. please keep them coming i love these books!!

Captivating brilliance & grasping plot development

I am a new reader to Warhammer. These 📚 books are very detailed & the story always seems to be exciting. The narrator is strong, well-spoken & linguistic in his reading. This was definitely a ln amusing book that kept me entertained. I recommend this to people who likr a good action story.
