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.

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 (:

Indiana Jones of Warhammer

Good listen if you like swashbuckling adventures. Interesting characters but with a few cliches which nevertheless fit the setting.

It's fine, but very generic.

The story is a by the numbers find a mcguffin. With some nice set pieces. But not stand out if you have read this type of book before. It loses out however because the characters are so unlikeable.

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.

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

A Fantastic Follow-up to City of Secrets

I enjoyed reading City of Secrets but I loved listening to The Silver Shard. Barnaby Edwards did a fantastic voice narrating this book. Each character had their own unique voice and it really made the story come alive. We got to see everything from Lizardmen/Seraphon to Kharadron Overlords. So many different factions from Age of Sigmar show up in this novel, and they actually fit instead of being thrown in for the sake of inclusion.

The are some major changes to the entire cast in this book, and it will be interesting to see if there is a third (not counting the short story put out between novels) book and how they will deal with these changes. I feel like Toll's story is completely told and wrapped up after The Silver Shard, so it will be interesting to see where things go from here.

This is definitely the best AoS audiobook put out so far, and I hope they keep using Barnaby Edwards to keep bringing Warhammer to life.
