The story 

Deep in the tainted lands of the Eightpoints, a child is born during an apocalyptic storm. As omens and prophecies swirl around it, with Archaon himself marking the boy, a brutal hunt begins, each warband striving to claim the child for their own ends. To Burak the Bloodseer and his Untamed Beasts, the child must be found and destroyed before it grows to rival the Everchosen. To Ashrath Silenthis and his Splintered Fang, it is Archaon’s heir and a means of buying his favour. To Lord Rakaros, the fanatical leader of the Scions of the Flame, the child must be given to the fire to prove their dedication to the Three Eyed-King. But as each warband fights for survival across this nightmarish landscape, they are stalked by a hellish and hated enemy: the chosen warriors of Sigmar the Craven. What follows is a brutal struggle that will lead to the very catacombs of the Bloodwind Spoil, where failure means certain death and damnation. 

Written by Richard Strachan. Narrated by Andrew James Spooner.

Surprisingly good

The quality of novels made to market a specific boxset is kind of dubious, sometimes favoring name-checking new units over telling an engaging story, but I enjoyed this one. Like the Warcry short story anthology, the real strength of this book is showcasing what life is like in a brutal high fantasy world for mortals away from the main storyline. For me, that made the characters more human, invested me in their perspectives, and elevated their battles and backstabbing. About the first two-thirds focuses on some original chaos warbands (Splintered Fang, Untamed Beasts, and Scions of the Flame) tracking and fighting over chaos messiah baby yoda in the Bloodwind Spoils, and the last third has the survivors and Stormcast Eternals playing Indiana Jones in catacombs. No real Morathi lore if you're looking for that. The plot is pretty skimpy and repeats a limited set of notes, but the settings and scenarios are inspirational for tabletop play, and the characters kept me interested. While the ride was fun, the ending didn't fully follow through on story promises for me. The narration is great, characterful and exciting without being too cartoonish. Overall, a fun listen if you're interested in the setting.

Pretty Exciting Book

I was confused at first not knowing much about Warcry but after researching the figures I didn't have much trouble following following along at all. More exciting story than most books from Black Library that also communicates a philosophical lesson.

GrimDark goodness

The book is a fun dive into the lives of people who know nothing but chaos & the relm of it. from baby murder to backstabbing everyone for your own goals, this is it. It was an enjoyable, violent & ruthless read.

Fairly decent

This was a decent enough story. I’m far more pleased with the narrator, I’m happy to see Black library going outside of their same four dudes that aren’t Jonathan Keeble. And it pays off big time, Spooner elevates this from a meh to pretty good for me.
