Summary

Advent Calendar 2018: Day Eleven

A chance encounter with a stranger known only as 'The Deserter' might be just what Corenne needs as she struggles to survive in Necromunda's underhive. 

A tale of faith, hope and sheer dumb luck from the underhive, filled with fascinating characters and chance encounters. 

In the underhive of Necromunda, the only law that really matters is that might is right and unless you can defend what's yours, someone else will claim it. That's what happened to Corenne. When the Thunder Knuckle Posse came, they took control of the Sweet Drop Still, sending her family packing. Now, she wants it back, and a chance encounter with a ragged old man known only as 'The Deserter', who claims to have fought in the armies of the vaunted Lord Solar, might just be her salvation - or at least revenge. 

An audio drama written by Justin D Hill.

Perfect for a newcomer, but still satisfying for a fan

I’m not familiar with this series (I have only ever read Hill’s novels written as Justin Hill). However, this drama was really easy to get into and visualise - it told me everything I needed to know about the underhive without lengthy exposition.

Well paced, excellent performances, and an entertaining, pleasing tale. I shall be looking for more tales from the underhive.

Great listen

Returning to Necromunda after a long hiatus, its great to see more stories are created about this city that I was introduced to when I was a wee lad. Great performance by cast.

Pretty good

Voice work is great. Some of the past Warhammer audio dramas have the sound effects way too loud & you can’t understand what’s happening. Not this one- production a lot better.

Also a great price.
