Get a taste of the action with a free sample before buying. LIBRARY 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. PLAYER The app also features an audio player, allowing you to listen to your downloaded audiobooks and audio dramas wherever you are, whenever you want.

SEARCH 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. EXPERIENCE 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.



  • Their app is your only option

    Great audiobooks, but you are stuck with their feature-lite player. No ability to export or download any prior purchases to another player. Just be cognizant of this before you make any purchases.
  • Apps bugged rn

    By cameblle chubck
    This app is great the majority of the time, but as of writing, I can’t download any audiobooks. Don’t download until a fix is made.
  • App stopped working’

    By Dr.Zaius1
    I bought two books and both books won’t download. In fact previous books I’ve bought won’t download from cloud. This is Oct 11, 2020
  • Just ask Apple for a refund

    By kkurze738
    MOST IMPORTANT: if your books stop working (won’t download) BL’s policy is no refunds. However Apple will refund you your money very quickly for up to (I think) 3 months whether you’ve listened to it or not. You paid money to OWN the book; NOT RENT it. Yes, you may have listened to them but if you can’t listen to them anytime you want then get your refunds because this is a common problem! Things you should know: 1. No streaming. If you can’t download then you can’t have it. 2. No website cross over. If you bought it here, enjoy it here. Only. If you can download it. If you bought it on the website, enjoy it there. Only. 3. Zero customer support. I emailed them about it not working over a week ago and even posted on their Facebook page. Haven’t heard from them at all.
  • Not currently working.

    I really like this app and own tons of books on it, but cannot download any of them. Review would be a 4 if it worked. Some quality of life changes and a sleep timer would make it a 5.
  • Great books, poor app

    By Superdude911
    I love the Black Library. They produce an unbelievable amount of amazing story and lore. But the app needs to be updated. I redownloaded so I could listen to the amazing and rich lore at work. But it does not seem compatible with the current iOS. I can’t download any of the books I own nor the ones I just bought. It needs to be updated if it wants to continue, and honestly merge it with the ‘one warhammer’ account that is being pushed for all the various GW products. That could help things too. Willing to re-review after bugs and update complete
  • Lost my whole library

    By Cucalon_Boys
    Lost my whole library.. I was downloading a new book to add to my collection. The book would not load so I deleted the app as was advised by the app to try and fix it now none of the books I own will download. This app suffers from lack of updates by its devs but thats no surprise considering its a spawn of GW
  • Currently Broken

    By Oberon10490f1
    I have over 30 audiobooks and as of Sunday I’m unable to download any. I click the album but the download doesn’t work. I’d wait till they work out that bugs before downloading.
  • When it works it’s great!

    By Aredquest
    Simply put this app is great when it works, it’s constantly plagued by bugs/issues. Think you’ll shoot them a quick email hoping for a response... think again they have the worst customer service which is surprising since Games Workshop’s normal customer service team is phenomenal.
  • Adore the product, the vessal not so much

    By 2apongee4u
    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.
