The newest instalment of the Eight Lamentations series popped up on the Black Library site today. “War-Claw” is a full-length audio drama that finds Owain Volker, Gunmaster of Azyr, and his companion, Zana Mathos, on the hunt for one of the eponymous Lamentations at a mountain outpost, besieged by unnatural creatures.
The CD version will include interviews with the cast and crew, including yours truly. Both versions will be available for pre-order in November.
Writing this one was a blast. It was the first time I’d tried my hand at a radio-play style script – one without narration. Dialogue alone had to carry the whole story. Hopefully, folks will enjoy what I came up with.
This story takes place sometime after the short story, “The Tainted Axe”. With that in mind, the suggested series chronology is:
- “Road of Blades”
- “Auction of Blood”
- Eight Lamentations: Spear of Shadows
- “The Tainted Axe”
- Eight Lamentations: War-Claw
I hope to do more audios and short stories with these characters, between now and when I get to start work on the sequel to Spear of Shadows. But in the meantime, War-Claw continues the story begun in Spear of Shadows.
