Publisher's Summary

Forged in the fires of conflict, the Iron Kingdoms is a fantastic realm where the combined power of magic and technology thunders across a landscape shaped by war. Dominating the field of battle are rare individuals who have mastered both arcane and martial combat and who boldly lead mighty armies in the ongoing struggle to claim victory over these ancient lands.

Three men who would be king threaten to sunder a kingdom, provoking a war that will drown its lands in blood.

Amid the backdrop of a new Cygnaran civil war, the fate of the kingdom depends on the outcome of a covert struggle between two powerful warcasters - the gun mage Allister Caine and the mercenary warlord Asheth Magnus. Caine faces a moral quandary as he seeks to kill the bastard son of Cygnar's former king, knowing he must end an innocent life to preserve the peace. But Magnus is equally determined to see the bastard crowned as king - and is willing to kill anyone who gets in his way. Regardless of who emerges the victor, the blood of kings must be spilled to end an otherwise interminable war.

    Story
    "Family squabbles with Warjacks"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Blood of Kings to be better than the print version?

    Clark's narration really brought the characters to life. No offense to Doug Seacat but his prose isn't always the most engaging (world-building is definitely his strong suit).


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Blood of Kings?

    I enjoyed the scene where the former ranger, now spy, was tracking targets through the city.


    Which character – as performed by Bernard Setaro Clark – was your favorite?

    Drake McBain, the mercenary commander. His constant talk about contractual details and payment brought a much needed levity to the fairly serious story of a kingdom in the midst of a succession crisis/civil war.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    "good Cygnar story for the new edition"

    spoilers warning don't read on if you don't want spoilers



    over all a good story even if you know nothing about the world of warmachine. my one complaint is the same I have with all warmachine/hordes stories I've read and that is the stories never waiver from the way the models are in the game if Magna us is a merc at the beginning then he's a merc at the end just because it feels like they don't want to have people see story changes as game changes. same can be said for the relative safety of "main charecter" are they in the minis game oh they are cool here is some bad stuff for them to go through but there never ever going to be in real danger. it may seem like Caine is in some tight spots but he always and I mean always comes out on top in the end. but if you know what your in for when you pick it up which is a nice Warhammer fluff peace about the return of Vinter Railthorn and a cool Cygnar civil war then your in for a good read just don't expect it to be more then the fluff from the game books.
