Publisher's Summary

A Warhammer Age of Sigmar novel

The War of Life affects all in Ghyran - even the underwater kingdoms of the Idoneth Deepkin. With battle raging, Prince Lurien seizes his chance to take the Jade Throne of Briomdar - but can he overcome his foes and his fellow Deepkin to claim his prize?

Listen to it because:

Dive beneath the oceans of the Mortal Realms to discover the politics and life of the Idoneth Deepkin in the first novel to explore their culture and motivations in depth.

The story:

Deep beneath the oceans of Ghyran, in kingdoms forgotten by gods and time and overlooked by the ravages of Chaos, the Idoneth Deepkin endure in bitter solitude. However, the Jade Throne of Briomdar sits empty, its long isolation threatened as never before in its history. The Everqueen’s warsong awakens the forests of both land and sea, and everywhere the diseased knights of Nurgle fight to the last foetid breath for the verdant Realm they claim as theirs. But for Prince Lurien this time of peril is one ripe with opportunity. It will take every drop of wit, guile and treachery the prince has to overcome not only the myriad foes of the Idoneth but his fellow Deepkin as well. 

Written by David Guymer. Narrated by Mark Elstob.

Great book about the Deepkin

Loved how it gave a glimpse into the world of the Idoneth Deepkin. Makes you want to know more about them.

Disappointing entry in the Age of Sigmar line

I was really excited for a book featuring the Idoneth Deepkin, unfortunately the story and narration are tough to get through. It is not that the narration is bad, just not appropriate for basically any of the characters. The story jumps from scene to scene without much connective tissue and anytime a big action scene is coming to a head and you wonder how the heroes are going to get out of this one we jump to after the action, everyone is fine and no real explanation is given for how they got out of it. Very frustrating. On top of this basically no ones motivation makes sense. I love Warhammer lore and books and this is the first one I couldn’t be bothered to finish. I was 2 hours from the end and I just can’t be bothered. I don’t care about the characters, I hate the narration and I don’t doubt the end will be unsatisfying.

Another great lore story.

I listen to a lot of Age of Sigmar books and found this story of the IDK very informative.

A Great First Idoneth Deepkin Novel

A fantastic undersea story with unique characters, that I dont know if i am supposed love or hate, with motives and allegiances shifting as frequently as the tides. As a player of the army the novel follows, i can say it is a great descriptor, lucid in its glimpses into the culture and societal heirarchy of the Idoneth Deepkin and it opens the door to a variety of ideas for battle reenactments. I recommend this to all deepkin fans.

Great story of Royal Intrigue

This story shines a bright light on a very secretive race within the Age of Sigmar universe. It demonstrates the royal subterfuge of a royal Idoneth court. It also shows the interactions of the Idoneth with savage orks and ogors, fellow elves of the Sylvaneth, and servants of the Plague Father. Highly recommended!

Entertaining

Some bits reminded me of Blackadder. I would enjoy more characterisations like this one.
Narration was excellent.

Insight into the court and intrigue of the Idoneth

Very well written and performed audiobook. It gave an insight into the power structures and courts of the Idoneth previously unseen (pun). Of particular interest was the social structures of those with and without souls and where that put you in terms of your class.

Very engaging and interesting.

An intriguing look into one of Order’s most mysterious allies. A ‘deep’ exploration of their civilisation and the very world they exist in. How does combat and day to day life work when you are humanoid beings that live under the sea? Well, it’s in this book...

Standard fantasy

Struggled to get past the first hour with lots of complicated invented names and places being thrown about, but once past that its a well told fantasy story with sprinklings of the wider warhammer world, although could have done with more.
