Sinner's Bounty bloody boring

It's so bloody boring, one of the worst warhammer stories I've ever heard, not worth a spare credit and certainly not worth buying at full price, great idea for book just let down by the writing

Great writing and truly outstanding narration

The narrator captures the characters with alarming skill, couple this with the Hive humour and we have a winning combination. Fingers crossed for more audiobooks from this team.

really enjoyed this one

Necromunda really really lacks on background story, a few pages here and there and a smattering of novels, between this and terminal overkill they are sorting this out, very good book.

A cracking continuation of Kal’s story

I’ve loved Kal Jerico since the early days of the Warhammer Monthly comic, where the witty dialogue and amusing stories (combined with sterling artwork!) perfectly captured the exploits of underhive bounty hunters!

Sinner’s Bounty is a wonderful continuation of that story, taking everything that happened across the comics and eventual novels (including Kal in Spaaace!) and combining them with the current “new” Necromunda setting, bringing in a bunch of the named bounty hunter/venator characters that Forgeworld has produced and breathing life into them! The underhive itself gets a lot of detail - I love the overall grubbiness and I particularly enjoyed descriptions of the flora and fauna.

The performance really suited the book, with a bunch of different British regional accents applied to some of the factions which suited them nicely.

I’d really recommend this if you’re a fan of sci-fi - it’s perfect if you’re looking for Necromunda inspiration!

Necromunda is a gift!

Both author and narrator have done a fantastic job portraying a fantastic setting! Would highly recommend to anyone a fan of the lawless wild west, grim-dark sci-fi, brutal gang violence and rusted metal.

Great story

Really enjoyed the story, though the narrator did make most of the female characters sound falsetto. It's a pity, because apart from his inability to make the female characters sound convincing, his performance was excellent. Necromunda stories are something I hope to see a lot more of, since we appear to have a plethora of emo space marine stories in the 40k universe and not enough showing the dark underbelly of the Imperium beyond the inquisitorial.

great book

Kal is a boring character, but the rest of the cast is fantastic. Now I have to go spend $200 on 20 year old metal redemptionists figures So I can have some red robes of my own.

I really want to see a sequel to this book quickly.

An excellent addition in the Kal Jerico series

A common concern you tend to see in any long running franchise when a new writer is assigned to a write new stories for a well known "legacy" character because of the new writer might drastically alter their personality/backstory for no clear rhyme or reason. Even some of Black Library's most famous authors are guilty of this.
Josh Reynolds, thankfully, is not one of these authors. He takes the characters created by William McDermott & Gordon Rennie and not only treats them with due respect in the d
story but introduces them to the uninitiated that makes the reader wanting more by the end of it.
Mark Elstob's brilliant performance is icing on the cake. Would recommend to veteran fans of Necromunda or people who know nothing about Warhammer 40000.

Good story but narrator...ouch

A good story eith alot of background for necromunda. However, the narrator reslly needs to work with a team. He makes almost all the carracters sounds like elderly British citizens. He reads well, but it becomes irritating listening to a bunch of geriatric Brittons.
