It is said that all who live belong ultimately to the Undying King. In the shadowy lands of Shyish, Nagash, God of Death, calls forth his soulless legions to reassert his dominion. His dread advance begins with the free city of Glymmsforge, bastion of Azyr in the Realm of Death. Standing between Nagash and his prize are the brooding Anvils of the Heldenhammer, an ancient host of Stormcast Eternals, and Lord-Castellant Pharus Thaum, guardian of the Ten Thousand Tombs. As battles between the living and the dead rage throughout the Mortal Realms, the War of Heaven and Death begins anew.

Mr Wincott does a marvellous job in portraying the numerous and completely rememberable characters throughout the book.

the story is simple but yet brilliant at the same time, the voice actors are on point for this production and it's great to see some of my now favourite voice actors doing more Black Library stuff.

Aboard the confines of an ancient space hulk, Seth and his Flesh Tearers engage in a brutal struggle against a horde of alien genestealers and their own natures. A hunger drives these warriors of the Blood, one matched by their alien aggressors. Hope remains while the Flesh Tearers can hold on to their honour, but what is the truth that lurks at the heart of this derelict ship, and will Seth manage to stave off the rage long enough to discover it?

This new entry into the lore of the Flesh Tearers gives us a insight in the inner struggle that faces our heroes and some truths that maybe should have been left hidden.

Guy Haley writing and performance by Gareth Armstrong brought me to the edge of my seat and to the brink of tears, this story adds so much to the advancing narrative of the 40k IP.

As an agent of the Throne, former soldier Ianthe serves Inquisitor Covenant and faces some of the most dangerous and insidious threats the galaxy has to offer. On the hunt for the rogue psyker Silas Norn, Ianthe and her associates run afoul of the Imperial authorities and are imprisoned. Norn too is captured and incarcerated, but with the ability to manipulate the minds of his victims he is far from easy quarry. To stop him, Ianthe must not only find him; she must overcome the buried ghosts of her hidden past.

We pick up with the characters from the first audio drama and it does not disappoint, the cast does another amazing job in keeping the listener captivated and Beth Chalmers is as always outstanding.

Only criticism I have is that due to Beth's character being such the focal point of the story the others are pushed more into the background, can only hope we catch up with these agents of the throne in the future.

Following a ferocious battle against Nurgle’s hordes, Lieutenant Quiller and the crew of Titans’ Bane are trapped inside the stricken Shadowsword. With her Cadian unit half-depleted, Quiller is forced to rely upon Paragonian and Mordian replacements. Vicious infighting within the tank soon becomes as dangerous as the enemy outside. In order to survive, Quiller knows she must remind her men that loyalty, camaraderie and self-sacrifice in the name of the Emperor transcends all planetary customs and patriotism.

This is a most listen by any fan of Warhammer 40k and/or tank enthusiasts! The cast portray a diverse range of characters from multiple worlds and beliefs within the short 45min running time.

The only criticism I have for this audio drama like all that come from Black Library is that there's zero chance for a follow up, would be a good step from the studio to have a series or two that threads together.
