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.

Excellent book

really good story about the bgod of the dead, and those who serve him, willing or not. Also, using some chill nurglite knights as the main antagonists made both side of the story interesting. Whilst you might not be rooting for chaos, (and aren't intended too), their viewpoint is via the sort of madman who you could get on with, if you could get over the smell. Also, for those who know Nagash from the old world, neither being mad nor dead seem to have made him less... Nagashy, and he concludes the story with a move that's definitely reminiscent of Nagash the necromancer, whilst being totally appropriate for Nagash the god. Other points: Solid narration, with distinctive voices for characters and the narrator, making both pleasurable and easy to listen to. Pretty good sense of it being grounded in a specific area, and its call outs to wider AoS law certainly don't hit you in the face with Ghal Maraz (though it does help to know what a sylvaneth physically is beforehand, but certainly won't break the story if you don't know anything but 'tree people')

Good way to get into AoS fiction

Great cast of characters, picked this up after reading the Neferata book and I am loving the "series" so far. Have and would recommend to anyone looking to get into the new world of AoS.

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...

Great to listen to.

Great AoS book that really describes the Necroquake and gives a great inside into the world of Nagash.

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.

Nice to heard a story not about the Stormcast

Amazing book, I always love when they focus on a story separate of the Stormcast.

It was ok.

Half of it was nagash giving himself a pep talk. at least the nurgle invaders made things interesting.

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!

phenomenal

enjoyed every second of it, every character is so distinct and layered and Emma Gregory did such wonderful job as all the characters, sucking me into the story so much so i forgot i was listening to one person. it provided great insight on nagash and two main characters in his army (Arkhan and Neferata) highly recommended

Wonderful

Just started playing Age of Sigmar and i found Nagash in a video breaking down each factions in a quick way. This book gives lore and some inspiration on my painting my army for him. I enjoyed its fully. We serve him in life and in death hail Nagash the undying king.

great narrator, yet the story line is not that interesting, very straight forward concept with a Known ending/ progress
