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....

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

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.

Thrilling

This book adds so much meat and bones to the plague garden. Through a journey into the very realm of Chaos. Diverse and imaginative this book could make a hit movie trilogy in of itself.

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.

A story made worse by the protagonists

What I liked:
The voice actor was great. Fun side characters like the corrupted knights and Gutrot Spume. Interesting details about Nurgle’s garden and the realm of chaos.

What I didn’t like:
The protagonists are utterly unlikable. Their constant droning and stoicism is an utter bore. Also, there is a complete lack of consequences. You never feel like the characters are in real peril as you wait for the next miraculous intervention to happen.

Great fun, Noble heros and entertaining villains.

My first Age of Sigmar audiobook : I'll admit I struggled a little with the first section, but once the story got going I really enjoyed it. Reynolds gives even the villains depth and humanity, it's nice work.

Ironically, probably my biggest criticism is that the big bad at the end is kinda flat. By contrast, I'd read a book solely about Gutrot Spume, who's a very fun antagonist.

A Fantastic Warhammer Story.

This an amazing story, well read and open for casual fans as well as hardcore. The characters are all compelling and voiced in ways that help you keep them separate as you listen.

if you are a new Warhammer fan everything is explained well enough that you can understand, and for the hardcore there are plenty of lore tie ins!

Only for the Faithful!

A really good example of the Stormcast Eternals, the Hallowed Knights especially, at their finest.

enjoyable jaunt through the garden

I mostly stopped listening to GW novels and have struggled to get into the new novels but Josh really stands out as one of the best writers in the AOS books. the reading was also really good. storywise it's what you expect from a GW book so don't expect complicated character development and twists in the story... that being said it's entertaining!

Utterly Superb.

A thoroughly enjoyable story.

The narration was spot on, easy to listen to and had great intonation!

The best Age of Sigmar story yet, I can’t wait for the sequel, I need it now 😅!

Buy stormcast! Buy stormcast! Buy stormcast!

I was really looking forward to this book. Thinking it was a well balanced story. This is not the case. I'm about 2hrs in and I'm bord. The Stormcast are GW new Space Marines so they are at no risk at all... from anything! Nurgle have magic. Stormcast have Better magic! Nurgle have tough warriors. Stormcast have tougher warriors! Nurgle have thick armour. Stormcast have thicker armour! And a massive shield! It describes Bightking as these tough as hell warriors then a Stormcast just rocks put hits them once or fires one arrow they they're dead within seconds! Very boring. It's just a one sided book with no risk of anything bad happening to the Stormcast. It might change but I'm fed up with listening to GW trying to sell Stormcast to me. "ooh look at them! They're so cool! look nothing can harm them! You should get some!" This book wasnt written to tell a story. It was written to sell new models and nothing more.

Good, more voices required.

Enjoyed most of this book, the writer likes the word sargasm a lot. Voice over could of done a few more voices apart from that it was good.

Good read

Was a great book with a good narrative bit slow and predictable at time but over all well worth a go.
