Publisher's Summary

Artificer General Sebastian Nemo has faced myriad dangers while serving his king and kingdom, but none so fascinating and sinister as the Convergence of Cyriss.

In the wake of an unprovoked attack on the Cygnaran town of Calbeck, Nemo and his forces hasten to confront the strange clockwork soldiers and machinery led by a young warcaster prodigy named Aurora, Numen of Aerogenesis. Nemo soon learns of the Convergence’s plans to transform Caen and its people to suit their enigmatic goddess, who favors machines over the living.

Amid this clash Nemo must withstand the temptation of the Convergence’s message to those who, like himself, are fascinated by technology. Aurora proves to be a different sort of enemy than he has faced before - something of a kindred spirit, albeit one bent on destroying all he holds dear.

Better than the Butcher

Any additional comments?

Not a bad book, though far from great. It was an acceptable foray into the world of the Warmachine miniatures game/Iron Kingdoms role-playing game. It was certainly a far better story than the horrid "The Warcaster Chronicles: The Butcher of Khardov" book which was a mess (and I reviewed on Amazon.com). I really hadn't read much about either Cygnar and Nemo or the Convergence of Cyriss. It sounded like this took place after "The Devil's Pay: Dogs of War, Vol. One", which is also available from Audible.

Scott Baker's pronunciation of some words was odd, for example he would say "lonce" instead of "lance", but other than that his performance was good.

It would be nice if these shared-world novels, novellas, and short story collections were linked so one could see which ones were available. I do plan on picking up more of the Iron Kingdoms books in the future, probably beginning with "The Devil's Pay".

fine store laid low by a flat performance

if your in the fandom you'll want to expand the lore and you'll be here anyway, but not the best place to jump into the iron kingdoms. gotta wonder some times what a quality voice actor/tris cost for these shorter books so I could figure out why they never spring for one

Sorry

This story is like 20 saltines without the salt or any water. Maybe it's the faction. Really wished a more interesting story with Nemo.

A great read.

I play Convergence so the book gave me a real insight into Aurora as well the whole faction.

The narrator did a good job and the story is solid.

great story

one of the best ik stories yet. the glimpse into nemos back story and the development of the cyrisists is a great world building plot line.

Great story, shoddy narrator.

Dave Gross has written a compelling story with great characters. Unfortunately, Steve Baker is a weak narrator. His reading is slow and monotonous, and he mispronounces several words, not just names and other pronouns. For instance, all but once, he says "articifer" instead of "artificer". He also drops voices many times, reading Nemo with a gruff low voice most of the time, but then reverting to normal narration for several pieces of dialogue. Listen at your own risk.

Good for Iron Kingdoms fans.

What made the experience of listening to Dark Convergence the most enjoyable?

More depth to the characters than I was expecting. Fairly good pacing.

What did you like best about this story?

Insight into named characters from the setting.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Very monotonous tone, and there were several words he repeatedly mispronounced. Please check your narrators can read adequately before recording them.
