Summary

Since the dark days of the Great Awakening, the scattered remnants of humanity have clung to a bleak existence, surviving howsoever they can, no matter what the cost. 

Tamra, a voivode of the Rictus clans, fights one last, desperate battle for the survival of her tribe, the Drak. Now her people face their most relentless enemy ever - the lumbering minions of the Plague God. Where is their lord Nagash, the Undying King, when his people need him most? As the gods and their servants vie for power in the Mortal Realms, Tamra is drawn into a deadly game between life and death, as beings long thought gone start to exert their powers once again.

Not what i was expecting

For a Nagash book, Nagash featured very little in the book and this felt more like a Neferata book. Don't get me wrong, it's enjoyable enough, but i was really expecting an extension of the older Nagash books which this really didnt feel like.

A well written story

A good story, well written... however it was hard to get into initially as I didn't like either deity in the conflict.

Fun book, not five stars

Overall good story and pacing, poor primary character development of Tamra (Drach shaman) left some chapters feeling shallow and without consequence however portrayal of Chaos characters brilliant and fun

Better for Death fans than Soul Wars

Soul Wars was underwhelming, this gets going a lot better and the characters are done really well. Shame about the loopy voice the reader chose to use for the dead mind...

One of the better age of sigmar books.

Starts off a bit samey as a lot of the other age of sigmar book (realmgate wars). But the story progresses and becomes more interesting.

It sets itself apart from the realmgate wars books by being a bit more than just a battle report all the way through and has some (undead) political interegue and character development.

Can see from this that the AOS books are progressing and getting better.

<br />Really good book

The book kept flowing with a good balance of action and dialogue. Really liked the Nurgle knights and seeing a different kind of chaos force in the mortal realms. My only complaint would be id like too have had some more juicy lore to do with Nagash and the forces of death. All in all really good Age of sigmar book

Narrator made this

i'll be honest i heard what sounded like an upper class woman narrating this and thought it it wouldn't fit the book.I could not have been more wrong. The voice actor is amazing best ive ever come across. The voices and the passion in the narration bring this story to life feeling at times like a radio drama than someone simply reading out of a book.

Great AoS Story

The narrator, Emma Gregory. really nailed the characters in this book! look forward to seeing more from her.

Another amazing Josh Reynolds book. I can see me buying all his books.

perfect for anyone that loves the mortal realms, especially Shyish and Nagash & his mortarchs.

A good tale

The story is really great. Like most black library books it could use a heavy editing job to cut out repetitive and unnecessary adjectives. The performance by Emma Gregory was exceptional!

Emma Gregory has surprised me, in a great way!

I love the Death storylines so I figured I'd enjoy this one as well.

I was hesitant about whether I'd enjoy this as much with a female reader. Typically readers for Warhammer books are male so I wasn't sure how it would sound to have a female voice act male dialogue. I was pleasantly surprised. I will now consider Emma Gregory among my favorite audio book performers. Her work on this title was exquisite. You can picture the characters she voices easily and specifically. She also acts out the emotions powerfully. The female characters are phenomenally portrayed and the male characters are far better than the inverse with male readers.

Definitely worth a listen. Very fun story and quick listen.

Fun Read, Written Primarily for Fans

Having been introduced to the highly imaginative world of Warhammer through Total War: Warhammer II, I couldn't get enough of it and started exploring the various other media pertaining to the expansive fandom.

Nagash: The Undying King was my first Warhammer book, and it was a fun read. It was interesting to delve deeper into the lore of characters and places I've heard about, and it delivered as expected for a story based on a tabletop battle simulation game: a dynamic war between two factions told from both perspectives, where I honestly wasn't sure what was going to happen next, how the tables were going to turn, and who was going to come out on top.

Of course, these books are written primarily for fans who presumably are already familiar with most of the settings and characters in the world of Warhammer. Needless to say then, the descriptive text was pretty minimal, and being that I'm new to the fandom, on multiple occasions I had to look something up to get an idea of what it looked like or what it was.

The Audible narration was excellent and fit the story's tone really well.

good book, good performance

interesting book about nagash's frame of mind. Fun story about Tamara and Neferata. who knew unholy knights could also make interesting and multidimensional characters.

Needs more Arkhan. Interesting antagonist.

Arkhan the Black is the best character in the realm of death. Neferrata was fun too. I wanted more from the story and Nagash, it felt underwhelming for a self titled book to not show him more. There was more road to use with the life and death narrative. Narrator had amazing range and skill.

More than expected

A surprisingly compelling story, that gives life (pun intended) to the people of the realm of Death and to the servants of Nurgle.
The exploration of ritual ancestor worship combined with necromancy gives credibility to the workings of the realm of Death.

Loved the characters. Tamra, Neferata, Arkhan, Nagash, Festerbite, and Wallgus were always a joy to listen to. I will miss them and I hope further stories to be published within their story arc.
