Publisher's Summary

As the War for the Realm of Life continues, Lord-Castellant Lorrus Grymn leads the battered remnants of the Steel Souls warrior chamber against the sargasso-citadels of the Verdant Bay. The Hallowed Knights claim victory, but at a terrible cost - Grymn is lost to Realm of Chaos. 

Now Gardus, newly reforged and fresh from the destruction of the Scabrous Sprawl, must lead his warriors into the foetid heart of Nurgle's realm in search of the Lord-Castellant, where they must once more brave the horrors of the Realm of Decay....

Soooo One Sided!

I am sitting here in awe at just how one sided this book was. I really like black library books but this was single handedly the worst one Ive ever experienced. Narrator was great as always, but unless you want to listen to a story about the stormcasts bullying their way through Nurgles garden, stay far far away. Its a boring and fairly repetitive story and I never felt that any of the named stormcasts were ever in any danger....... just really bad

Well Written Hammerporn

Reynolds has the rare talent, shared to date only by C. L. Werner, to write Nurgle spectacularly. That makes it a shame that he completely neuters him in the same breath. It's well-written no doubt (outside of the Deus ex machina), but it's also noblebright hammerporn where the good guy wins with no loss or even real damage sustained. They go against a God in his own realm and come out shining and pretty with a good story to tell back at home with all of their friends.

Unless your a stormcast fan. This can be meh...

The battles are so one sided in the stormcasts's favor that it removes any sense of danger for the characters that would normally make these kind of books interesting or suspenseful. Feels like a missed opportunity. I gave it 3 stars solely for the reader. I loved the way he voiced Gutrot.

Thrilling

This book adds so much meat and bones to the plague garden. Through a journey into the very realm of Chaos. Diverse and imaginative this book could make a hit movie trilogy in of itself.

Predictable, not worth my time.

Go replay an old videogame or bing-watch cartoons with the time you save: it will be just as productive.

A Fantastic Warhammer Story.

This an amazing story, well read and open for casual fans as well as hardcore. The characters are all compelling and voiced in ways that help you keep them separate as you listen. if you are a new Warhammer fan everything is explained well enough that you can understand, and for the hardcore there are plenty of lore tie ins!

enjoyable jaunt through the garden

I mostly stopped listening to GW novels and have struggled to get into the new novels but Josh really stands out as one of the best writers in the AOS books. the reading was also really good. storywise it's what you expect from a GW book so don't expect complicated character development and twists in the story... that being said it's entertaining!

Utterly Superb.

A thoroughly enjoyable story. The narration was spot on, easy to listen to and had great intonation! The best Age of Sigmar story yet, I can’t wait for the sequel, I need it now 😅!

Good, more voices required.

Enjoyed most of this book, the writer likes the word sargasm a lot. Voice over could of done a few more voices apart from that it was good.

fantastic! enthralling from start to finish!

The narrator is amazing and effectively keeps us on the edge of our seats throughout. The characters are inspiring and I now know that the Steel Souls will be my next big project thanks to this excellent wordsmith wizardry. Keep up the great work!

I just cannot get my head around AoS

Got this in the hope that it would give me some understanding of the new universe. Unfortunately it seems all bolter p0rn nonsense wrapped in this ‘fantasy’ setting
