The Black Library has sparked the imaginations of many with their windows into different universes, and now getting their audio books just got easier.
We’ve enjoyed the fantastic lore and stories that have emerged from the Black Library for Warhammer: 40,000 and Warhammer: Age of Sigmar. The audio-books used to be hard to come by and rather exclusively released by the Black Library. Now, there are currently 156 Black Library audiobooks available via Audible!
Let”s take a look a closer look at a couple titles that are currently available.

Imperium Secundus lies revealed as a heretical folly. Terra has not fallen, though it remains inaccessible. Sanguinius, Guilliman and the Lion El’Johnson, the primarchs of the Triumvirate, must reach Terra at all costs. They seek to defend the Emperor and to atone for their sins.
But the Ruinstorm, a galaxy-wide maelstrom of chaos, hides the Throneworld from the primarchs. Now the fleets of three Legions depart Macragge, and the primarchs will stop at nothing to overcome the Ruinstorm. Yet an insidious enemy watches their every move, and plots against the weaknesses of the errant sons of the Emperor. Each has his own inner storm, and each marches towards his own ruin.©2017 Games Workshop Limited (P)2017 Games Workshop Limited

The Dark Angels Legion is couched in layers of mystery and secrecy, harkening back to the days of the knightly orders of Caliban that helped to raise their infant primarch. But Lion El’Jonson’s greatest strength often proves to be one of the most divisive issues amongst his sons – rarely can any two commanders agree upon one single course of action from the start.
As they seek to bring the world of Byzanthis to compliance, Chapter Masters Astelan and Belath are among those with very different notions of what victory might require.©2011 Games Workshop Limited (P)2011 Games Workshop Limited
