Publisher's Summary

A Lumineth Realm-Lords novel.

When disaster strikes their mountain home, a trio of Alarith Stoneguard must gather a band of heroes to stop vile Slaaneshi Hedonites from devastating the entire realm.

Listen to it because: discover the Lumineth Realm-lords and explore the lands of Hysh in a desperate quest to stop a cataclysm from unfolding.

The story: a single, harrowing trial stands between supplicant Ferendir and a life of loyal service to his Alarith temple. But on the day of the young aelf’s final initiation, a Slaaneshi warhost descends upon his mountain home, leaving slaughter and destruction in their wake and stealing a long-hidden Lumineth treasure of terrible power. His world now torn asunder, Ferendir and his stalwart masters, Serath and Desriel, are forced to navigate a realm at war to stop the depraved warriors of the Dark Prince. The three Alarith Stoneguard must gather a band of Lumineth champions and embark upon a perilous quest. Failure is inconceivable, for the Hedonites seek to awaken an ancient and cataclysmic weapon, one with the power to bring Hysh to its knees.

Written by Dale Lucas. Narrated by Richard Reed.

Wonderful!

A beautiful story with plenty of twists and turns and fantastic character development, particularly of the main protagonist. I only hope some of these characters can get their own model some day. Fantastic narration by Richard Reed, did the story a great service.

Awesome!

Just got done with the Realm-Lords audiobook. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it! Dale Lucas has a more drawn out and dramatic approach, so it’s a long listen. But I found that his slow-burn approach fleshed out the three main characters very well. No spoilers, but the end chapters almost brought tears to my eyes because I got to know all three so well. Their cohorts and the larger Lumineth army that showed up in chapters 3-4 gave a really good feel for how the Lumineth think, behave, and fight - and it’s awesome. As an Iliatha player I was particularly happy with how the twin sisters, a Sentinel and a Warden, added to the story. I especially liked that the story was told from the viewpoint of the Alarith, which are different from the more “High Elfish” Vanari. To top of off, I’m becoming a huge fan of Richard Reed who narrated the audiobook. He put so much feel and character into each role. It was an excellent performance. All in all, an excellent listen!

Boring. Nothing to see here folks

What a waste of a good possible story. Elves are godlike unchallenged characters. Terribly uninteresting.

A good listen for the road

Written for a game of plastic war dolls, this is a well crafted if predictable story. It isn't novel, but it is well told. Even as a grown man I sense this tale has helped me in its own way in my personal development. It's a far cry from the swashbuckling prose of Bill King, but it is indelibly Warhammer. Richard Reed balances several voices and personas effortlessly, has a dynamic cadence and seemingly had fun with some of the characters.

I enjoyed it overall! Solid AOS title

Never been a fan of High Elves of the old world, so picked this up with low expectations but it was good! Enjoyed the character development, dynamics and lore. Really solid entry into the AOS library, and good enough to make me want to know more about the lumineth.

Solid story with fantastic narration

A solid fantasy adventure with interesting protagonists and villain. The Alarith Stoneguard are the main focus of the story but you will learn a little bit about the other factions of the Lumineth. I would have liked a little more in this regard. A fantastic narrative performance from Richard Reed pushed this up to 5 stars for me.

Great read get it if you like AoS novels

First time listening to Lucas's works. and it was an enjoyable ride gave in depth and succinct world building whilst not losing sight of the over arching plot and story

Good book to introduce the Realm-Lords.

Narrator was good, the voices acting wasn’t distracting and were mostly very fitting. Story has a few somewhat predictable beats but the character are interesting and it keeps you entertained. Overall very solid listen, most people won’t be disappointed.
