Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

Horror is still possible in universe at war

I love 40k, and have for decades. The setting is pretty horrific on it's own- plenty of unsettling elements or far far worse.

When I heard about this new venture I was hopeful, but unconvinced, because of what I'd already read in the book. However, this book was an incredible start to Warhammer Horror venture! The stories that I've read were inevitably broad scaled events, set in huge looming cities, with expansive themes, that could make or break planets.

Warhammer Horror took the 40k universe and made it intensely personal- distilling the setting down the experiences of one person, and it was fantastic. It did everything a good horror setting should- alienate the character, isolating them further and further as the situation gets worse.

An absolute must listen! Big thumbs up!

3 great stories

3 amazing short stories that all come together. the ending was a bit easy to see coming but was still great. It's hard to make the 40k universe more horrifying then it already is, but it definitely worked. look forward to more.

first two stories are wonderful

I like a little dark in my #grimdark. this is a great start to the warhammer horror. it often felt a bit theater of the absurd, in a great Camus inspired way. strongly recommend.

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

not my preferred Warhammer story.

I struggled to finish this story. Out of all the audio books that I have heard, this one left me wanting more. I think having the first person narration actually ruined a bit at the story. It seemed to miss vile aspects. I'm not entirely certain what it was missing, it just seemed not to grab me as many of the other stories have in the Warhammer 40,000 world.
