Inhaltsangabe

A Warhammer Horror novel.  

An Astra Militarum colonel, broken by war and loss, returns to his childhood home to take up the mantle of Planetary Governor - but horrors await in the House of Malveil that will make his experiences of war seem like child's play.... 

Listen to it because: Haunted house stories are a staple of the horror genre. In a grim, dark future where much worse things than ghosts can anchor themselves to reality, a haunted house can do more than just scare you…  

The story: In a bleak corner of the city of Valgaast, the House of Malveil awaits. A place of darkness, its halls throb with a sinister history. Its rooms are filled with malice. Its walls echo with pain. Now it stirs eagerly with the approach of an old heir - Colonel Maeson Strock of the Astra Militarum has returned home to his ancestral mansion. He is a man broken, both by the horrors of war and by personal loss, and he has come home to take up the mantle of Planetary Governor. He hopes he can purge his home world of political corruption and reforge connections with his estranged children. He hopes he can rebuild his life.   

Malveil will feast on these dreams. Strock believes he has seen the worst of the galaxy’s horrors. Malveil will show him how wrong he is.  

Written by David Annandale.

Ein spannender und unerwarteter Abstieg in den Wahnsinn und das Chaos. Brauchte aber seine Zeit.

Enter Malveil, You'll Only Be Here Forever

An excellent tale of madness, growing paranoia and occult powers unfolding. Annandale has crafted a wonderful first person narrative whose unreliable narrator spins his circles like a maelstrom drawing the reader deeper into the mysteries of the haunted mansion. What is real, what a fantasy? As dream and reality blur together, the book becomes ever harder to put aside.

Dugald Bruce-Lockhart does an exceptional job narrating the audiobook. His tone and pace perfectly encapsulate the protagonist's emotional and mental state - from strong confidence over growing unease up to stark fear - and further contribute to the horror.I

David Annnadale has long been one of my favorite authors of horror in Black Library's stable, and you'll certainly find familiar themes of faith and madness here. The Warhammer Horror imprint appears to finally let him spread his wings to their full potential. The House of Night and Chain proves his talents yet again, and I'll eagerly anticipate his next Horror outing.
