Publisher's Summary

A Warhammer Horror novel.  

An Astra Militarum colonel, broken by war and loss, returns to his childhood home to take up the mantle of Planetary Governor - but horrors await in the House of Malveil that will make his experiences of war seem like child's play.... 

Listen to it because: Haunted house stories are a staple of the horror genre. In a grim, dark future where much worse things than ghosts can anchor themselves to reality, a haunted house can do more than just scare you…  

The story: In a bleak corner of the city of Valgaast, the House of Malveil awaits. A place of darkness, its halls throb with a sinister history. Its rooms are filled with malice. Its walls echo with pain. Now it stirs eagerly with the approach of an old heir - Colonel Maeson Strock of the Astra Militarum has returned home to his ancestral mansion. He is a man broken, both by the horrors of war and by personal loss, and he has come home to take up the mantle of Planetary Governor. He hopes he can purge his home world of political corruption and reforge connections with his estranged children. He hopes he can rebuild his life.   

Malveil will feast on these dreams. Strock believes he has seen the worst of the galaxy’s horrors. Malveil will show him how wrong he is.  

Written by David Annandale. 

Running Time 7 hours 51 minutes.

Narrated by Dugald Bruce-Lockhart.

Got so into it!

Really loved this book. The writing is super cool and the narration is great. Perfect creepiness for the Halloween holiday.

A surprisingly strong horror story

The tone of this book, like several people have mentioned does come off like The Haunting of Hill House, but it really nails a creepy atmosphere and a strong story. The protagonists loss of reality twists how the story comes off, and it leaves the listener questioning what really happens until the end! A great listen.

Great story; bad performance

This is a great story, but I’m just not a fan of the narrator. He does a decent job for the main character, but every other character was awfully done.

Intriguing than terrifying

This book scared me. I had some hope but I should have cast that aside. The narrator does an excellent job of performing this book and making you feel terrified by the end.

It’s good

If you like things like house on haunted hill or Hell house you’ll find it enjoyable but can’t recommend it for every horror fan.

Great horror story

David Annandale brings a Lovecraftian vibe to the 40k universe with his tale of a descent into madness brought about by the machinations of a daemonic house.

Brilliantly narrated by Dugald Bruce-Lockhart who manages to capture the essence of each character perfectly.
