A Warhammer Horror audiobook

A disgraced warrior-priest who prowls the Greywater Fastness is forced to confront his past when a message from an old friend sends him on a perilous quest. In an isolated village full of untrusting souls, his darkest secrets threaten to come to light.

Listen to It Because:

Explore a corner of the Mortal Realms full of dangerous characters and dark secrets in a tale by Josh Reynolds, master of the sinister.

The Story:

Harran Blackwood was a Warrior-Priest of ruthless virtue. Now he's a man with a scorched reputation, prowling the back alleys of Greywater Fastness, content to fight the petty wars of racketeers for survival. But when a desperate message arrives from an old friend, Blackwood is forced to confront a past he thought long buried. 

Summoned to the isolated village of Wald, Blackwood sets off on a perilous trek to ensure the sins of his former life remain forgotten. He soon discovers that Wald is a hostile, secretive place with sins of its own. Deep in the murky marshes, where the cruel chants of village folk echo and the stink of death hovers low, Blackwood must channel his bitterness and rage to defy the ancient darkness that now hunts him before he is devoured, body and soul.

Excellent story of the old world, even in the age of sigmarines

I have been a fan of GW novels and games since the 80’s. I am truly not a fan of the recent conversion of the old world to something that looks like 40k, but is steampunk. That said, this was an excellent story with an excellent reader. The voice at first seems a little over done, but in time it grows on you. The story itself is in the old tradition, and was quite good as both a fantastic story and as horror fiction (left you wondering).

A Dark Swamp-town mystery!

Not a story for the faint of heart, but one I thoroughly enjoyed! This story was an absolute joy to listen to, and I would love to hear more about the epic adventures and downfall of Haran Blackwood! Packed with action, suspense, a fair bit of comedic moments, and a good dose of grindhouse-style horror! I was almost brought to tears towards the end, and am really praying for a series to be made of this amazing character! "How about a game of cards?" 10/10! Major props to both the narrator and the author!

unfortunately a miss for me.

the story was paper thin and the narrator chose such an odd cadence for the whole thing.

the story consists of the main character thinking things look like deer and telling you how cool he thinks he is.

Great dark book.

This is a great book that I would love to see made in a TV show of sorts or maybe a move series as such. The reader is amazing in this role and his voice fits the scene of the book well. I would love to hear more Warhammer Horror with him.

not particularly scary but still great

a horror novel centered around the sylvaneth is a great core concept. u fortunately the book isn't all that scary. the main character is really capable and a total bad ass so your aware from the begining he is never really in danger. this kind of puts damper on the scares.

it is however very entertaining and just spooky enough to scratch that Warhammer horror itch. if you haven't listened to maladiction yet I'd recommend that over this one. one of the best pieces of horror I've read in awhile and probably my favorite Warhammer novel of all gime

hold on, it builds up!

I am more of a Warhammer 40k fan than Warhammer, so I didn't know almost anything about this realm of fiction. As a result, I was a bit lost for the 1st chapter or 2. But as the book continued, I was pleased to find that the author, Josh Reynolds, was still doing very good work in the fantasy genre's of horror in addition to league grim and darkness of the 41st millennium.

The book almost felt like some sort of 16th century noir. The descriptions of the environment and feel of the story were evocative.

I finished this audio book in maybe 2 1/2 days, maybe less.

I must admit that the reader took a bit of getting used to, but by the end, I had really come to enjoy his performance.

This book just calls out for further novels incorporating the main character.

its all atmosphere. kind of boring

its probably as spooky as reynolds can be but admittedly its not very scary. its grimdark at best. its a fun view at predatory tree kin but i feel theres no real feeling of terror ever present. if your already a warhammer fantasy fan then its great inspiration for possible gaming setting and impliments on table top but as a "horror novel" its weak. good world ,somewhat intriguing story ,and characters ,atmosphere is strong but thats pretty much all this had going for it. got bored half way through and ended up putting it down. narrator is decent ,good voice for horror.

So good!

Grimdark at it's finest, the story plays out like a bleak noire of sorts with a decent mystery. Completely different look at the Sylvaneth and just what is capable in Age of Sigmar as a setting.

Dark fantasy meets the Wicker Man and Snake Plissken

This is the best Black Library book I have read and is fantastically dark whilst keeping the reader turning each page with a sense of urgency to discover what the hero/anti-hero will face next. Blackwood has the same attitude towards life as Snake Plissken another anti-hero faced with a formidable task. The sense of foreboding throughout is exciting as are the regular surprises regarding the “dark harvest”. Highly recommended, next for me is C L Werner’s Witch Hunter trilogy. Looking forward to another Blackwood novel!

simply excellent AOS horror!

For fans of the grimdark vibe of the warhammer brought to AoS this is a must listen. a great story and the narration is really appropriate (it gets a little getting used to)

highly recommended!

An Excellent Entry in Warhammer Horror

I don't think one would need know much about the worlds of Warhammer to enjoy this story. Part detective story, part nature-horror we have a gritty protagonist, a good set up, and a couple of very interesting turns to enjoy. Jake Urry's reading was excellent too, definitely added to the experience.

Awesome narrator, good story.

The narrator really brings this story to life!
Great characters and scenery! The overall story is pretty basic but still exiting enough.

I would strongly recommend this to anyone who enjoys dark fantasy!

Gritty

Good audiobook, easy to follow and the narrator who I was worried might be irritating actually worked well for this gritty tale. The end of the book felt weak and nothing really happened but the first eighty per cent was well-paced and atmospheric

Eerie and compelling

My first Warhammer Horror book and I have to agree with other reviewers in that there are elements of the wicker man but also it reminded me of 1950s mystery films, the narration was excellent and a perfect fit for the story

Spoken like Smith from the Matrix

Clearly if the monotone of the speaker changed I’d probably enjoy the book. However it grates on my nerves so much I gave up. Listen to the sample and see for yourself.

Perhaps greatest age of sigmar novel yet.

Performance was great.
This story would work even whitout being a Warhammer related novel. Has the feeling of older warhammer books that were more rooted and where protagonists ain't some kind of greater than life being.

A Warhammer horror novel that's actually creepy.

There really isn't much I didn't like about this book. The setting, characters, plot and narration left me with a constantly growing feeling of dread and unease. I sincerely hope to see more of Harran Blackwood in future works. Fantastic work Josh Reynolds.

Absolutely awesome read, Josh never fails to enthral.

The book is paced in a almost noir like way. A detective story set in the mortal realms with masterfully done suspense and horror. Easily a favourite of mine.

A warhammer wicker man

A warhammer wicker man, won’t break boundaries with the story but a solid one. Narrator is 10/10 great work worth the listen for his gritty gothic tone.

Give the sample a listen first.

This is one of the weaker showings from Black Library,
Josh Reynolds uses a lot of words to say not a lot, repeating a lot of things in what appears to be an effort to increase book-length. In addition, characters acting counter to their established personality for the sake of plot or a 'cool scene'. (No spoilers)
Jake Urry also gives a rather poor performance, a low monotone voice that I take to be for the sake of atmosphere but just serves to slow down the pace of the book and make all the characters feel like the same one.
From both author and voice actor this novel gives the impression that they were under some pressure to increase length where there was little need and it reflects badly when listening.

Atmospheric

Best AoS novel I've read. Some of the AoS I've come into contact to reads like bad fanfiction, jammed full of over-the-top fight scenes with some very thin plot to justify it. This book was a pleasant change of pace. No Stormcast! Thank you! Read it if you want I'm not your dad.

No flashing bolters or epic stormcast in this dark tale. Great horro and lovecraftian atmosphere
