Summary

A Warhammer Age of Sigmar Novel

The Bad Moon looms over the city of Draconium, and Watch Captain Helena Morthan knows it bodes ill for the town. Can she and grieving warrior Hendrick Saul foil the plans of the Gloomspite Loonking, and save their people?

Listen because...

Andy Clark tells a twisted and disturbing tale of the grots of the Mortal Realms, delving into darkness in more ways than one. Strap in—this is going to be a wild ride....

The story:

In the dark corners of the Mortal Realms, the mad and mysterious Gloomspite Gitz go to war, following the trail of their abominable lunar deity. Nowhere is beyond the sight of the Bad Moon—not even those places under Sigmar’s protection, like the sweltering city of Draconium. Beneath the scalding rains of Aqshy, the city is a boiling pot of tension, its regent praying to Sigmar for guidance while Watch Captain Helena Morthan douses the fires of anarchy: blades drawn in the streets, heretical doomsayers preaching the end of days, and insects eating watchmen alive. When the grieving warrior Hendrick and his ragged warband arrive at the gates with a prophetic warning, Captain Morthan sees a way to save her people. But with the Bad Moon rising in the sky above and Skragrott the Loonking plotting in the depths below, will there even be a Draconium left for her to save? 

Written by Andy Clark. Narrated by Harry Myers.

Lunatic heroes against lunatic villains

This was a good one, a lot of laughs too. Sigmarite mercenaries get some info they are needed in a seemingly peaceful location with problematic acid rain and a huge volcano. They are not let in.

This might be difficult to listen if you dread spiders and other insects, mold and mushrooms.

Autistic engineers making bombs, stubborn dwarves complaining, moldy zombies and religious zealots.

It starts slow, but when the mold hits the fan, it really does hit with a bang. I'd describe the latter half of the book a bit too exciting compared to the first.

There's also gits but you have to listen to the book for more than three hours.

Pretty Damn Good!

Love the book! Getting into Age of Sigmar and while some of the novels are range from decent to good, a lot I've read/listened to are underwhelming. This is not one of them, great story and horror elements. Highly recommend along with Cursed City, The Silver Shard, Dominion, and Dark Harvest.

Good fun, light horror

fantastic narrator capable of a wide range of voices and great at playing the role of different personalities. Very engaging, it was difficult to pause I just wanted to listen to the whole thing in one sitting.

The writing was pretty good, and definitely did the job of giving me the heebie jeebies which is exactly what anything having to do with the Gloomspite Gitz should do! Thoroughly enjoyed the book and this performance of it
