    Description

    A Warhammer Horror portmanteau.

    Drawn together by mysterious circumstances, three strangers meet in the mists of a desolate cemetery world. As they relate their stories, the threads of fate are drawn around them, and destiny awaits.... 

    Read it because: It's a classic horror portmanteau comprising three Warhammer 40,000 novellas, each with its own distinct feel - a ghost story, a monster saga and a psychological horror tale - that all draw together through the terrifying linking story.  

    The story: On a misty cemetery world, three strangers are drawn together through mysterious circumstances. Each of them has a tale to tell of a narrow escape from death. Amid the toll of funerary bells and the creep and click of mortuary-servitors, the truth is confessed. But whose story can be trusted? Whose recollection is warped, even unto themselves? 

    For these are strange stories of the uncanny, the irrational and the spine-chillingly frightening, where horrors abound and the dark depths of the human psyche is unearthed.

    A Respectable Start for Warhammer Horror

    When if first saw the announcement that Black Library would begin producing horror pieces I was immediately skeptical. Warhammer is known for being over-the-top action, for Space Marines who biologically know no fear, for immortal Stormcasts who are reforged upon death. These traits do not lend themselves strongly to horror. But I was pleasantly surprised to see the authors going in what I think was the correct path with these stories.

    Each of the three stories in this audiobook are interesting narratives, and each tries to capture a different element of horror. I found the second story “The Woman in the Walls” to be notably frightening, and actually lost some sleep over it. The first story works better as a mystery or drama than as a traditional story. While the final story is more reminiscent of a classic monster tale, with its own very Warhammer twist.

    Overall this was an excellent first entry in Warhammer Horror, only enhanced by excellent narration and the diverse and interesting stories.

    Great

    Great stories, great performance.
    Could imagine it would be hard writing a horror story in a universe that is already so horrible, but they managed it well.
    Especially the last story!

    Everything Just Gets Worse

    But the Emperor protects!

    At least, He protects all the people who deserve to be protected.

    Meandering and Long

    If each story was condensed down to 10 minutes, it would would be excellent. As it is, it’s too long, and only the first story is ever actually fully resolved.

    Amazing!

    One of the best 40K stories written and performed! I can't wait for the future of this genre of Grimdark Horror!

    Warhammer 40k horror is great!

    I loved this audiobook.
    near the end I started to understand what was coming but it was still a blast all the way through.

    Loved it

    I barely put it down after i startes, and enjoyed every minute of it

    Now i dont usually do horror, as my mind is a fragile thing, so weather this makes my review an indorcement, or not is up to you
    Or maybe just a reflection of my love of 40k

    good psychological stories. not horror

    hard to write horror in the 40K setting, which is inherently dystopian horror. the ending was predictable and unimaginative. three short stories. first is excellent. the second is okay. the third, the worst.

    Could not get into the book.

    This book just wasn't for me. Perhaps it will be a great experience for other readers.

    Empfehlenswert....

    Zwei der drei Geschichten sind hervorragend, doch die Geschichte der imperialen soldatin konnte mich nicht wirklich überzeugen. Ausserdem konnte ich das Ende der übergeordneten Geschichte, die alles verbindet, bereits nach der ersten Story des Kommissars vorhersehen.

    Nichts desto trotz sehr empfehlenswert, schon alleine wegen der genialen ersten Story!

    Horror?

    First of all, i rate this book as a warhammer book. That means the star rating i gave it, is not in comparsion to "regular" books, but to other black library books.

    Are the Stories any good?
    This book ties three decent warhammmer 40k stories into a forth story that is not worth mentioning.
    The three stories in itself are two astra militarum stories and one domestic story. All of them are a good read/listen and describe the topics they each are portraying in very great detail.
    The first story plays in a trenchwar on a nameless world, where no one knows why they are fighting and not even who is the enemy.
    The second stories background is in army that just pacified a planet and is now travelling through the warp to reach the next warzone (it plays mainly on a huge space ship),
    The third is of a priest who doubts himself and plays on an isolated scavanging/recycling space station.
    If you want to find out more about the lifes of the regular humans in any of these environments in form of a nice story, then this book is totally worth a buy in my opinion.

    The voice actors:
    I enjoyed them all. If you enjoyed the voice acting in the preview you will enjoy the rest as well.

    The Horror:
    This book both includes horror on a personal level (things that happen to the protagonists in person/in their mind/to their friends, body horror, psychic horror etc.) and also horror on a grand scale (e.g. the machinery of the imperium/the warp and how it affects millions of lives each day etc.).
    However the main questions id like to ask in regards to horror are:
    Was i horrified? (did the read create any feeling of "Angst") - No
    Was i scared to read on at some point? - No
    Was i afraid of the dark or got spooked by weird noises, etc. after listening? - (did any of the horror last for a while after reading) - No

    TLDR
    Stories: three decent, one crap (3 stars)
    Voice Acting: Top notch (5 stars)
    Horror: i wasnt scared once, but each story def. includes horror elements (2 stars)
    Overall: 3 Stars
