The Black Library Audio app is the ultimate way to experience Black Library’s wide range of audiobooks and audio dramas wherever you are, whenever you want, right on your iPhone and iPad.

Choose from a wide range of over 170 audio titles set in the immersive worlds of Warhammer 40,000, The Horus Heresy and Warhammer Age of Sigmar.


View the vast range of audiobooks and dramas, filtered by setting. Find your favourite series, or a new one, and buy every title that belongs to it. Get a taste of the action with a free sample before buying.

Browse the audiobooks and audio dramas you’ve purchased in the app’s Library. Sort your audios by purchase date, title or series. They’re all stored remotely for you to download to your device whenever you want to listen to them. You can toggle freely between titles on your device and everything you’ve purchased.

The app also features an audio player, allowing you to listen to your downloaded audiobooks and audio dramas wherever you are, whenever you want. Never be without your fix of fantastic adventures from the worlds of Warhammer! Link up via bluetooth to listen remotely with cordless headphones or in your car.

A fully-featured search function allows you to find the audio you’re looking for in a variety of ways. You can search by title, author or keyword. Looking for stories that feature Ultramarines? Just type it into the search bar and you’ll find them all. The search function will even shortlist and show titles based on what you type, as you type it.

With our audiobooks you get to experience the story as it was meant to be heard. Word for word your narrator will read the story to you, straight from the page. Audiobooks are usually full and unabridged versions of novels, novellas or short stories.

With our audio dramas you are immersed in the story. Gunfire, battle cries and music form the backdrop on which actors play out the characters. The narrator links the tale together so all you have to do is listen to the action. Audio Drama’s are uniquely scripted and can range in length between roughly 10 minutes and 2 hours.

Too simple?

I’ve been using this app for years now enjoying my favorite books. It was yesterday I tried to link my account to another app (Warhammer Tv) and realized I don’t know what email I used in my black library app. thinking I’d be able to look in setting to find it I was shocked to find there is no settings icon or option. Only a restore purchase option and 3 quick app options. I feel this is a huge flaw and needs to be updated until this is fixed I won’t be using any other Warhammer apps because I don’t need to have them spread across all my different email’s trying to manage payment issues either. Please fix this

Conveniently inconvenient

I have to start off by saying I love Black Library and the media they produce. And I have to say it's great to have so much that they have created in the audio format quickly available at your fingertips.
Here is the problem, the audiobooks are formatted just like the books to have multiple tracks to correspond with chapters, but they don't work. Tracks are listed to have a run time of 0 seconds and you're stuck listing to a "prologue" track that goes on for for 8 solid hours.
If you happen to lose your place you are in a bind. Since the tracks don't work you have to start back at the beginning and press the fast forward button, which only moves 30 seconds at a time btw, until you catch back up to where you were.
When this app first came out I didn't have this problem, so far I've had 6 books with this problem. I hope it gets fixed soon.

Adore the product, the vessal not so much

I adore the black library and Warhammer in general but this app is not the best way to experience it this moment. First and foremost Is no sleep timer! I like to listen to audio books as bed time stories (yes even with the brutal nature of Warhammer, makes it more fun) but without a sleep timer that Is impossible for me. Secondly I was also having some slight problems with it not keeping place or chapters being wonky.

Please add a sleep timer and smash some bugs and I'll gladly rereview

In the meantime unless the book is 99¢ I'll be using audible.
