    Description

    A Warhammer Quest Audiobook

    When a series of vicious murders rock the vampire-ruled city of Ulfenkarn, an unlikely group of heroes - a vampire hunter, a vigilante, a wizard and a soldier - must discover the truth even as the city's dread ruler takes to the streets and the bloodletting increases. 

    Listen to It Because

    Delve into the dungeons beneath the city of Ulfenkarn and discover the story behind the board game in this tale of thrilling adventure. 

    The Story

    Ulfenkarn is a city of nightmares. Its vampiric rulers have indulged their bloodlust in every shadow-clad alley, turning the once-proud metropolis into a charnel house. Already crushed beneath the tyranny of Radukar the Wolf and his Thirsting Court, a spate of vicious murders plunges the mortal inhabitants into fresh terror. Emerging to uncover a connection between the attacks is an unlikely group of heroes: a vampire hunter from Carstinia; a slum-born vigilante; a ruthless wizard; and a soldier who is the last survivor of her noble bloodline. Arrayed against them are the undead monsters that thrive upon Radukar's gory regime. But a daring search for answers turns into a fight for survival when the Wolf himself descends his Ebon Citadel and joins the carnage in the streets.... 

    Written by C L Werner. Narrated by Richard Reed.

    Histoire très prenante, et performance incroyable

    L'histoire décrit les faits prenant place dans Ulfenkarn avant les évènements du jeu de plateau "Cursed City". Le récit est très bien rhythmé, et le narrateur Richard Reed fournit une performance exceptionnelle, surtout quand il prête sa voix à Radukar.

    Si vous êtes intrigués par l'histoire de la Cité maudite, je vous recommande vivement ce livre audio !

    Although it was fun, the story seemed repetitive and a little disjointed

    Let me start by saying this is a super fun listen. Richard Reed does an excellent job of differentiating the main characters (Gustav, Emelda, Radukar, Morrvhal). There are some ancillary characters who sound very similar, but they’re not SUPER important to the plot. I think the novel could’ve been a little shorter, there were some points in the middle where things felt a little repetitive, but overall it’s a very fun listen. I actually listened to the bulk of it while assembling the models for cursed city, which helped get me excited for the modeling portion of the game.

    The ending has me VERY excited to get into the board game with some friends. It makes me want to buy the physical copy for the Morrvhal hero card as well.

    Overall it’s simply a fun read, if you go in expecting some literary marvel, you’ll be disappointed, but if you go in expecting something that’s enjoyable, relatively short, and you’re looking for something to get you even more excited about Warhammer Quest: Cursed City, go ahead and give this a listen.

    Chilling and cold to the end!

    The voice and acting was amazing! Very well told. This story is a heavy cat and mouse chase, and takes places BEFORE you play the boardgame. I very much enjoyed the lore, and like the main villian Radukar the wolf!

    Great companion for painting Cured City

    This book was a great deal of fun and very well performed. Great companion for painting the miniatures for the Cursed City boxed game that is the setting for this title. if you're a Games Workshop or Black Library fan give this book a listen.

    Incredible

    This story was an incredible journey that leaves you hungry for what is in coming next. The setting, the writing and a cast of unique characters all add a profound contribution to an exciting story. An excellent book that I wish was even longer.

    Painfully simple and childish.

    If you like Josh Reynolds, William King, Sandy Mitchell or Andy Clark then you will be disappointed with this one.

    There is nothing to take in, think about or enjoy. Just a long, simplistic, dry trudge into nothing.

    More of a netflix script then a book.
    Never felt any connection to the main characters or cared for their reasons for doing things.

    I’ve got the game and happily playing it, but this audiobook did nothing for me at all. Wasted opportunity and wasted time.

    More than worth the listen and the credit\ cost!

    I was thrilled and kept on wagering guessing the outcome and it's smaller reveal throughout. Loved the blnarration. The setting story characters all are superb. Top notch work. now to squire the actual board game. haha

    Vampires Gone Wild

    This Journey into the Sigmar Realm of ulfenkarn was fun. It really sets up the game.

    Decent book, but where is the game?

    Unlike the release novels for Warcy, Beastgrave and Blackstone Fortress, Cursed City is actually pretty good. As with any game-release novel from Black Library, the story is less free and more obvious, but it’s not as bad as the others. It’s a pretty decent dungeon crawler with interesting characters.

    It’s more a kin to a warhammer horror novel than a regular Age of Sigmar novel, somewhat fitting the book.

    So it’s a tad ironic that the game isn’t available, because with our it, then what’s the point of the book exactly?

    Decent fantasy

    Somewhat formulaic but not bad. Ending is questionable because it makes the villain stupid.

    Murder Mystery in a City of Vampires

    I enjoyed this quite a bit. CL Werner is one of my go-to authors for Warhammer. Really, a murder mystery set in a city ruled by vampires is almost a no brainers! If I had to nitpick, I would say that I really wish this novel were done under the Warhammer Horror imprint (or to a lesser extent even the Crime imprint.) The story has the feel of the usual fantasy adventure but I would have liked the tone to have been in the horror venue. The narrator (I believe, Richard Reed) does a fantastic job. A nice tie-in for the Cursed City boardgame.
