Publisher's Summary

Since the dark days of the Great Awakening, the scattered remnants of humanity have clung to a bleak existence, surviving howsoever they can, no matter what the cost. 

Tamra, a voivode of the Rictus clans, fights one last, desperate battle for the survival of her tribe, the Drak. Now her people face their most relentless enemy ever - the lumbering minions of the Plague God. Where is their lord Nagash, the Undying King, when his people need him most? As the gods and their servants vie for power in the Mortal Realms, Tamra is drawn into a deadly game between life and death, as beings long thought gone start to exert their powers once again.

Not what i was expecting

For a Nagash book, Nagash featured very little in the book and this felt more like a Neferata book. Don't get me wrong, it's enjoyable enough, but i was really expecting an extension of the older Nagash books which this really didnt feel like.

One of the better age of sigmar books.

Starts off a bit samey as a lot of the other age of sigmar book (realmgate wars). But the story progresses and becomes more interesting.

It sets itself apart from the realmgate wars books by being a bit more than just a battle report all the way through and has some (undead) political interegue and character development.

Can see from this that the AOS books are progressing and getting better.

<br />Really good book

The book kept flowing with a good balance of action and dialogue. Really liked the Nurgle knights and seeing a different kind of chaos force in the mortal realms. My only complaint would be id like too have had some more juicy lore to do with Nagash and the forces of death. All in all really good Age of sigmar book

Narrator made this

i'll be honest i heard what sounded like an upper class woman narrating this and thought it it wouldn't fit the book.I could not have been more wrong. The voice actor is amazing best ive ever come across. The voices and the passion in the narration bring this story to life feeling at times like a radio drama than someone simply reading out of a book.

A must listen for AOS and fantasy fans alike!

fantastic book, normally the quality of books set in the Warhammer world's can feel a bit predictable and dull but this was genuinely a very interesting book with great narration and lots of twists to keep you interested. The book being either from the perspective of nurgle or nagash's followers gave the whole thing a nice feel without overly perscriptive good and bad guys. I will be looking out for more of Josh's work in the future.

Excellent book

really good story about the bgod of the dead, and those who serve him, willing or not. Also, using some chill nurglite knights as the main antagonists made both side of the story interesting. Whilst you might not be rooting for chaos, (and aren't intended too), their viewpoint is via the sort of madman who you could get on with, if you could get over the smell. Also, for those who know Nagash from the old world, neither being mad nor dead seem to have made him less... Nagashy, and he concludes the story with a move that's definitely reminiscent of Nagash the necromancer, whilst being totally appropriate for Nagash the god. Other points: Solid narration, with distinctive voices for characters and the narrator, making both pleasurable and easy to listen to. Pretty good sense of it being grounded in a specific area, and its call outs to wider AoS law certainly don't hit you in the face with Ghal Maraz (though it does help to know what a sylvaneth physically is beforehand, but certainly won't break the story if you don't know anything but 'tree people')
