Summary

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.

Absolutely fantastic Audio book!

I absolutely loved this audio book. The narrator demonstrated the personalities of the characters wonderfully, the book itself kept me captivated throughout and the character representation in the book was brill. I thoroughly recommend this audio book!

Enjoyable

Really enjoyed it, especially the narrator Jake Urry, missing a trick not having him on more books. Interesting story, as I haven't really touched on warhammer since I was a kid, found myself a little lost. But enjoyed it nonetheless.

A good listen.

Was my first audio book. Will listen to more from the author. The narrator's voice was chilling for such a title.

If you go down to the woods to day.

If you think the Age of Sigmar setting isn't "Grim-Dark" enough for you give this book a go. Jake Urry gives a very different style of narration to most BL audio books but it works well with this books creepy theme.

Grim Dark

Finally a fantastic novel in the setting of AoS that demonstrates just how dark and horrible it is to live in the mortal realms! I really enjoyed this, one of my favourite black library books for sure. I strongly recommend you give it a listen!

Less horror more dark fantasy

Josh Reynolds is a new name to me for black library, but each book I've read of his is a good read. Dark harvest is paced quite slowly and seemed to wrap itself up very quickly. The ending had a feeling of must be kept under X pages or X word count briefing.

The characters are nicely human and relatable in a universe with elves, dwarves , magically armoured post humans forged by lightning, sentient fungi and ratmen.
The story sits nicely on its own. it is set in the age of sigmar but this bookneeds no knowledge of the Warhammer lore or history to enjoy, but there are nice nods to those that do.

The cast of characters is quite small and actions to the situations seem very realistic which is nice and gives the book a grounded dark fantasy feel.

I wasn't a huge fan of the narrator myself though others may find his dry tone suiting to the setting. or thought it lacked a bit of nuance and there wasn't any difference in tone from the narrator when different characters were speaking.
it's ok once you are used to it, but it feels more or a reading of the book rather than a performance which lots of audiobook narrators do.

High hopes...

I had high hopes for Dark Harvest, especially after having read Kim Newman's superb Beasts in Velvet which uses the Warhammer-setting to great effect to create real page turner filled with suspense and an incredible twist at the end. Dark Harvest does none of this. Instead it plods, almost slithers, along at a slow pace preferring to build a dark foggy world of despair, full of evil, ancient spirits, slumbering gods, angry trees...and eels! (Oh so many eels!) Main character spends most of the first half of the book going from one character to another, asking more or les the same questions and getting more or less the same answers, while being tormented by a dark deed from a dark past that is never fully revealed. It all feels a bit cookie cutter and even though the book presents it as a mystery - the strange happenings in the swampy town of Wald - you've more or less worked it all out within the first few chapters, leaving the final chapters falling flat. Jake Urrey's performance also takes some getting used yet his gutteral voice and slow pace is strangely befitting this dark and dreary but ultimately forgetful tale.
