Publisher's Summary

A Lumineth Realm-lords audiobook. 

For Lumineth Stonemage Carreth Y'gethin, an Ossiarch invasion of Hysh comes with personal challenges as he faces destiny head-on.

Listen to It Because

Explore notions of destiny and divinity through the lens of the Lumineth Realm-lords in a tale that pits the aelves against Nagash's dread servants.

The Story

Long have the Lumineth Realm-lords held themselves aloof from the troubles of the Mortal Realms. But now, as Nagash asserts his dominion over the living and the dead, the Lumineth must strike back.

For Carreth Y’gethin, a legendary warrior and powerful Stonemage, the war against Nagash is merely a distraction from the Lumineth’s true purpose - to hone their spiritual equilibrium and prevent their realm falling back into the madness that once plagued it. But when Carreth’s sister is horrifically killed fighting the undead, he finds himself inexorably drawn back into the struggle. 

As the Ossiarch Bonereapers invade Hysh, Carreth is charged by Teclis himself to defeat one of Nagash’s most dangerous generals, who is destined to destroy the Light of Eltharion, the Lumineth’s greatest champion. The Stonemage must conquer the warring emotions within and slay this champion of Death, lest the light of Hysh fade from the Mortal Realms foreve.... 

Written by Richard Strachan. Narrated by Barnaby Edwards.

No Teclis v Nagash showdown??? C’mon

Ok story. Didn’t know some of the LRL had Irish accents… enjoyable but would’ve liked them to not just skip over the biggest match of this fight characterized in Broken Realms : Teclis v Nagash

Slow burn but satisfying and well written

Just got done with End of Enlightenment audiobook. Just like Realm-Lords before this, I really liked it.

Both books were a slow burn with a story that unfurled deliberately, but I find this style of storytelling soothing especially in an audiobook.

Lumineth players will get a good flavor of the army and their fighting style. But what I really enjoyed was the sad story that tied this tale together.

Well done.

A good look at the armies, but light on the story

With so much happening in the Broken Realms narrative arc across Age of Sigmar at the time the book came out, it is a bit of a shame that this story focused on such a small section of that narrative. I get that they are trying to humanize (elfenize?) the overarching struggle, but it still falls short for me in the story area. Characters, and plot are just okay.

That said, it is a fun look at the different units within the armies if you are big into the tabletop game, (which if you are ready a review of an Age of Sigmar book, you probably are). I'd even say it is a better look at the dynamics of the Bonereapers than it is of the Lumineth. Both armies get nearly equal time to shine, and different units are described along with their interactions with different parts of the army. Interesting stuff.

TLDR: Plot and characters are a meh, but fun if you want to read about your miniature units

A bit predictable but action packed and lorefilled

the main plot is a little predictable but overall the action, insight into the lore of both the Ossiarch and thr lumineth make up for it. performance was quite good convincing accents fleshed out some of the characters.

Great Insight into the Lumineth

I enjoyed the fact that I learnt more about the Lumineth Realm Lords; it was a very emotive story and full of brilliant descriptions that made you feel like you were part of the Hyshian Realm. I loved the reader - his performance enhanced the entire story.
