Summary

A malevolent threat looms over the once great city of Excelsis. For as long as the treacherous Ortam Vermyre lives, civilisation is no longer safe within the Realm of Beasts. 

Witch Hunter Hanniver Toll must brave the deadly seas and jungles of the Taloncoast to stop Vermyre before he can reach the legendary lost city of Xoantica. For within this forgotten ruin lies an artefact of darkest sorcery that possesses the power to reshape reality itself: the Silver Shard. Can Toll and his companion, a former Freeguild soldier known as Armand Callis, capture their nemesis in time? Or will Vermyre evade the Order of Azyr’s justice and tear the Mortal Realms asunder?

Superb

What a great story for developing the AoS at large. The tale winds from Oruks to Corsairs to Khorne Reavers to Karadin to Tzangors effortlessly through the eyes of a witch hunter and his companions. If you are looking for the world that was to be replaced by the world that is then this story is for you. Great narration tons great plot. More please.

Fantasticly enjoyable story

A great adventure story, nicely narrated. Gives a great look at life in the Mortal Realms, with a large cast of engaging characters. Highly recommended.

Shev and Occlesius should headline

The adventure is fun enough despite getting bogged down at times. The Shev and Occlesius double act is for me the core of the story and could have been played up more, even justifying their own spin off. A good listen but not a must listen.

Epic Adventure awaits

From the performance to the actual words, this is full of rich context. There are pure moments of joy within this book. If your a fan of fantasy this is a must.

Best Age Of Sigmar Book

If you are looking for the best AOS book this is it, the others about the Stormcast Eternals can be a bit dry and too similar to the 40K Space Marine books.
Most of the races and factions are portrayed in this book and the mortals involved make a welcome change to the immortal superhuman Stormcasts basically shouting oaths to Sigmar while casting down Chaos demons.
I look forward to the second outing.

Gotrek and Felix mk2

what can I say, it's not the best book in the damn world but by God it really adds that oldhammer feel to the world of age of sigmar. I found moments between the Callis and Toll much akin to gotrek and Felix which made moments even more memorable. whisky this tale is setting up Callis and Toll and definitely ends with them as the centre piece, this specific novel has a third main character in the name of Sev (unsure of the spelling!). she's a great addition to the story and hopefully she gets her own focus in separate novels. This does probably the best job of giving this world an oldhammer feel with its different locations and living environments. A must for any more enthusiast!

Great Audio-book Overall

After having read the City of Secrets and The Old Ways I was excited to see how the duo was doing and wasn't dissapointed. Hearing from the perspective of new characters was a change of pace, but a welcome one since they were well written. Barnaby did an excellent job of narrating, especially with the voice of Vermyr. I did hope to give the story a 5 star review since I am a fan of Callis and Toll, but unfortunatly some parts of the story just held it back from this. Some of the plot points felt a bit rushed towards the end especially the parting scene. I am eager to see where the next installment of Callis and Toll will lead, good job Nick Horth (:

Complete let down :(

I really struggled to stick with this book. After listening to a few Gotrek and Felix books I decided to give this one a go.

The story had very little in the way of world development. It was basically one battle to the next with no real story or fluff to pad the story out.

My advice would be to listen to G&F and give this one a miss

What I come to expect from older black library

This book has been the best from the Age Of Sigmar I've listened to yet. It's not a single mounting story, it's like Indiana Jones in the Warhammer fantasy world

Excellent Fantasy Adventure

I was pleasantly surprised by this title in the relatively new Age of Sigma setting. Most of the series so far have been action-centric and somewhat plot thin, but this book is nothing less than a thrilling joyride through fantastic settings and vibrant characters. It also helps that you don't need to know too much about the AoS background, making this book a must have for any fan of swashbuckling fantasy.

Really loved this book

I've only read this and Soul Wars and this one was a wonderful second novel in Age of Sigmar. A daring little jaunt on adventure.

Not bad

Better than dominion. All in all a good little fantasy story with memorable characters and a fun adventure. The author does a great job describing the environment and really makes you feel grounded in the story. Worth the token to listen.

Very good adventure!

I get kinda mixed with Indiana Jones vibe and kinda Dreamworks's Sinbad stories in this audio book. I very much enjoyed this audio book. Good for 1st time listeners getting into Age of Sigmar universe.

Uninspired Story, Uncharismatic Characters

This was a slog like few others with characters I just didn't care about doing things that did little to advance the plot or even develop what the stakes of that plot were. I don't know who the hero is because no one is heroic, and one of the "good guys" is more vicious and cruel than the 2-dimensional villain.

How Incredible!

The Silver Shard is a roller coaster ride that continues to elevate higher and higher and higher. The characters are interesting and woven masterfully into a story that twists and turns into a blossoming ending that has you cheering out loud as you hear them. It is a most definite read for anyone who enjoys fantasy set in the Age of SIgmar universe. The performance of the reader is buttery smooth and portrays distinct, recognizable voices for each of the characters while excellently performed. A Must Have.
