The False War

Blackshields: The False War, my newest audio drama for Black Library – as well as my first contribution to the long running Horus Heresy series – is now available for purchase.BLPROCESSED-Blackshields-The-False-War

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?

I’ve said elsewhere that I’m honestly surprised that they let me write this one. There’s very little action in it. It’s mostly a character piece, with some sprinkled violence. Still, I’m glad Black Library took a chance on it. Even better, there might be more adventures for Endryd Haar and co. in the future – so watch this space!

The running time is approximately 72 minutes. The script is performed by Gareth Armstrong, John Banks, Tim Bentinck, Steve Conlin, Matthew Hunt & Toby Longworth.

Blackshields: The False War is available from the publisher as a digital download or as a CD. It is also available through iTunes.
