Trials of Azrael

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, reviews The Trials of Azrael by CZ Dunn, the tie-in audio drama to the Apocalypse Novel Pandorax, published by Black Library and set in the world of Warhammer 40,000. Focusing on the Dark Angels and their leader Azrael – this Audio Drama is performed by Gareth Armstrong, Tim Bentinck, Clare Corbett, Chris Fairbank and Luke Thompson. In the CD you also have access to a disc with an original script, as well as maps and other images.

“An excellent listen, The Trials of Azrael may be one of Black Library’s best audio dramas yet. With a fun plot and some great voice-acting, CZ Dunn establishes himself as a must read author based on the quality of this audio drama alone. Essential listening for any Black Library fan.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Veil of Darkness by Nick Kyme – Audio Drama Review [Bane of Kings]

Veil of Darkness

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings” reviews the Black-Library exclusive Veil of Darkness Audio Drama, set following the Ultramarines’ defeat at Damnos, detailing the consequences of Sicarius’ failure. This audio drama is written by Nick Kyme, and narrated by Gareth Armstrong, set in the Warhammer 40,000 Universe as part of the Space Marine Battles exclusive Audio Dramas.

“A great, first person-narrated take on one of the most iconic Space Marine characters, Cato Sicarius, and apart from a few flaws – Veil of Darkness stands along with Damnos as being another very strong instalment in Nick Kyme’s Ultramarine stories.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
