Publisher's Summary

The war is over, and the Mortal Realms have all but fallen to Chaos....

Korghos Khul rampages across the fiery Realm of Aqshy, hunting down mortal kind to slaughter or subjugate to Khorne. His Goretide have crushed all resistance...until the storm.

From the heavens hurtle paladins clad in gold. Sent by Sigmar, the Stormcast Eternals have come to liberate all the realms from the yoke of Chaos. Their leader is Vandus Hammerhand, Lord-Celestant of the Hammers of Sigmar.

After a long age of darkness, there is hope. Vandus must open the Gates of Azyr to unleash Sigmar's righteous fury against the damned. Everything depends on his victory.

The first of what is a great series.

I didn't find this that great.
However if you continue it becomes an amazing series that really breaths life into the Age of Sigmar universe.
You could probably pass this one, however it does introduce a key character and villain so probably recommended to start here.

reboots are tough

a reboot for a franchise like warhammer fantasy will always be a hard undertaking. The fight scenes are good, the character development is ok. But the biggest negative is the worldbuilding. all we really get is "oh yeah, chaos destroyed everything". fair enough, but where are we, where is Azyr, or akshi? are we in the physical world in this scene or the warp?

A Short Intro into Age of Sigmar

The book is good story wise, but the run time of 3.5 hours is much less than the other Realmgate Wars books for the same price.

A short and sweet introduction to Age of Sigmar

While I expected more for the price, this is a great hopping in point for people new to the franchise.

Awesome!

I absolutely love the way the narrator did the characters voices. It puts you right in the battle and never got bored. Well done!

More action than story

Short and a good introduction to Age of Sigmar, although the story was mostly battles.

great work!

Really well put together never really been into the lore behind the scenes, but this has really grasped my attention and made me want to devour more if the books. Also the voice actor was superb one of the better ones I have listened to.

Short story, pretty decent.

I'm not entirely sure that this is worth an audible credit, but the rest of the books appear to be longer. The story is a good introduction. The voice actor does a great job.
