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.

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.

Really enjoyed this.

There’s some great lore in here including a chaos lord redeemed to become a stormcast. I wasn’t a stormcast fan until I finished this book. I loved the performance of the servants of Nurgle most.

Characters are fantastic

At first I didn't like the Stormcast, but I had the boom and I figured I'd read it. And boy, when I tell you the characters I their book are great I truly mean it. I didn't really like nurgle or Stormcast going into this book, and now The Stormhost of the Hallowed Knights and the Nurgle followers of specifically The order of the Fly are some of the most compelling and engaging characters I've read in quite a while.

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.

An amazing adventure with thrilling characters

I've seen some reviews criticizing this book for having no threat due to overpowered characters. while I can see where they are coming from I fully disagree. This book had me on the edge of my seat time and time again. If you like the Stormcast Eternals give this book a chance. You won't regret it.

ONLY THE FAITHFUL!

Salutations,

Recently got into Warhammer Age of Sigmar. This book brings to life those little models. Gardus Steelsoul really is that in this book, also cast light onto these statuesque warriors and the trails that awaits them in Papa's Garden. Truly felt as if I had traversed the garden myself and am about to don silvered Sigmarite armour.
