False Lamentations

Black Library has updated its coming soon section with September’s releases, including my Age of Sigmar novel, Eight Lamentations: Spear of Shadows and my Horus Heresy audio-drama, Blackshields: The False War.


From the blurb:

In the beginning, there was fire. And from fire came eight weapons of terrible power, honed to a killing edge by the chosen weaponsmiths of Khorne. Now, as the Mortal Realms echo with the thunder of war, the great powers hunt the eight wherever they might be found – whatever the cost. In a city of prophecy and secrets, Grungni, smith-god of the duardin, gathers together a group of mortal warriors from across the realms in order to seek the first of the eight. But they are not alone in their quest; agents of the Ruinous Powers want the weapon for themselves. Now the race is on, as man, duardin and daemon alike seek to claim the Spear of Shadows…


From the blurb:

Renouncing fealty to all masters or driven mad by the rigours of war, the Blackshields are a stain upon any Legion they once served. Regarded as little better than pirates, their loyalty is only to themselves. Infamous among their mercenary ranks is Endryd Haar, a former World Eater, driven by hatred, his blade pledged to no banner but his own. But estranged from his Legion and surrounded by a battered warband of warriors, how long can Haar and his Blackshields hope to endure?

Running time approximately 72 minutes. Performed by Gareth Armstrong, John Banks, Tim Bentinck, Steve Conlin, Matthew Hunt & Toby Longworth

Both Eight Lamentations: Spear of Shadows and Blackshields: The False War will be available from Black Library in September. On a related note, I may or may not be doing a signing at Warhammer World in September, so keep your eyes on this space.
