Publisher's Summary

The quest to find the Nine Gates that lead to the underworlds of Shyish and an audience with Nagash continues....

Tarsus of the Hallowed Knights leads his Stormcast Eternals into the unearthly city of Helstone. Their enigmatic guide, Mannfred von Carstein, assures them that what they need to find his necromantic master lies within its halls, but there is more than darkness lurking in the ruins. Chaos has already taken root, and a reckoning against the servants of the Plague God awaits.

The Heroes of Hellstone !

I really love the extra audio we don't get in the books. The sounds to the battle and beats really let you emerge yourself into the story.

Tarsus is a Vampisist!

Tarsus and the boys (no more girls here, last episode had one and the quota is now filled) keep on trucking to get to Nagash. The repetetiveness of the series are really starting to rear its ugly head here, along with some beastmen, as the beats again follow the same pattern as the previous instalments in the series.
The listener gets treated to a little more backstory of Tarsus, and the question regarding what Mannfred will do when the they find Nagash is put forward.
(Light spoilers incoming!)
The sneaky untrustworthy vampire continues to be chaotic good, and almost turns on the Stormcasts but not really.
Alright, I need to know why everyone (the writer most of all) thinks that trusting vampires is the worst thing since Facebook game invites. Are there no honourable vampires? Do vampirism also make you a giant douche? In the last episode we saw a group of vampires that seemed very devote to keeping their oath, so that does not seem to be the case.
In addition, the most Mannfred ever does is being a bit of a rump, and this is after being told that he is a no good untrustworthy vampire. If I were Mannfred I would also like to stick it to these arrogant Stormcasts that strut around like they own the place...
Anyhow, if Mannfred betrays Tarsus in the next and final instalment, it would'nt really mean anything as Tarsus had said Mannfred would stab them in the back eventually, at least once each episode. It would also have almost no weight, as the two have hardly bonded at all on a character level. We know nothing of what really drives Mannfred, and so are unable to form any personal conclusions whether he can be trusted or not.
The fighting is ok, there are some interesting character in the opposing force, and the fight serves the story to some extent. Overall the audio drama is quite good, but this series thus far has a lot of missed potential.
