Publisher's Summary

A Warhammer Age of Sigmar audiobook.

Discover the tragic tale of Prince Maesa, a nomadic aelf willing to brave the terrible might of Nagash to find respite from his grief.

Listen to it because....

It's a tale of lost love—and the lengths one outcast aelf will go to mend his broken heart—as Maesa journeys across the Mortal Realms to bring his beloved back.

Description:

For centuries, Prince Maesa of the nomad clans has wandered the Mortal Realms. Exiled from his people for the crime of loving a human woman, Maesa's woes were compacted by bereavement—for human lives are but brief sparks compared to those of the aelves.

Ever since his beloved Ellamar's death, Maesa has quested tirelessly in search of a means to return her to his arms. Now, accompanied by his spite companion Shattercap, Maesa nears the end of his quest—single-mindedly daring the deserts of Shyish, the fury of slumbering demigods, and the wrath of daemons to revive his true love. Yet the souls of the departed are guarded jealously by the God of Undeath. To carry out a true resurrection would be to earn Nagash's undying contempt, and the Great Necromancer is the least forgiving deity in all the Mortal Realms...

Written by Guy Haley. Narrated by Tom Alexander. Running time 10 hours 41 mins (approx).

Best book published by black library

Having read 60 plus black library books, this one stands above all. A clear and concise story that shows the forming of a bond between companions. The story follows one heart wrenching journey of Prince Maesa (a wanderer elf) that, that finds several unlikely companions across the classic age of sigmar high fantasy setting. Through the use of stories you will be taken to the wildest places of the realms, each told by different in story narrators, which all accumulate into one grand narrative. Truly some of the most likable characters I have ever read and I hope we see them again.

Best AoS novel since RealmSlayer

Really enjoyed, you dont need to own the other Prince Maesa books so just jump in. -- others seem to be within anyway.
Novel doesnt just focus on Prince Maesa you will hear of other character tales which were also told well.

Dont want to spoil so just know its a great story while also throwing in an insight to the AoS world.

A truly iconic story

Guy Haley has crafted a wonderful story that is mythic but richly detailed, and could easily be enjoyed by someone unfamiliar with the deep (and confusing!) lore of Age of Sigmar. It manages to span a journey across many disparate realms with excellent pacing, pausing only on the most compelling moments of the story, and shows that Haley knows his storytelling craft.

My favorite part is essentially a “bottle episode” in the middle of tale, where a group of world weary travelers swap their stories, it was an unexpected and welcome tonal shift that gave a needed reprieve from the bleakness of the realm of death, but built to satisfying climax.

This is a great fantasy novel, and worth your time regardless if whether you are invested in the lore of its setting. Let this be your jumping of point, a sweet and sorrowful tale of grief, and of hope.

A Touching Fantasy Adventure

For a Warhammer book, this has a surprising emotional core to it. It also has a lot to say on friendship, memory, obsession, grief, the value of kindness, tutelage, and so on. It is an unconventional Warhammer book in several ways. With it being a series of short stories strung together into a whole book, it has a Tarantino to it, with several different kinds of segments like Pulp Fiction. So sometimes there is not much of a focus on combat, such as in the inn storytelling segment, where the main character takes a back seat while we hear stories of side characters.

Also making it feel different is the side character, Shattercap, who reminded me of Gollum from LOTR. A small fantasy creature trying to be good. This combined with the stoic, yet good nature of the protagonist and the focus on adventuring over combat, made Prince Maesa feel more like a Tolkienesque adventure story than a war-centric Warhammer book. Though for those who want that, there are fairly cinematic fights too.

It only loses a star on story as the mix of short stories that makes up the book makes it feel less synergistic than you might want sometimes, and some plot elements have a Deus Ex Machina feel to them. But overall, this is a fantastic book.

OMG!!

Guy Haley captured adventure, hope and tragedy in this book. I have read and listen to many a Black library book for Fantasy, AOS, Horus Heresy and 40K. But this book in particular is a testament to Guy Haley’s talent. I can’t wait to go on the next adventure with Maesa and shattercap.

Unexpected

I didn’t know at first if I wanted to pick up this book. But after a preview from one of the short novels I just wanted to know how this book ended.

I liked the reference from other events in the Age of Sigmar timeline. The only dislike was the narrating of some sentences. There are al lot of “he said” bits that annoyed me, but overall a surprisingly good read.

reeeaally reeeeally good

Really immersive fantasy chapters. A must for any wood elf / wanderers fans, especially as there is not much else to appease us nowadays.

I loved it!

Probably one of the better AoS-books in my opinion. Lots of amazing set pieces, charismatic characters, beatiful friendships, loss and a bit of hope. Highly recommended.
