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.

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.



  • Poor imitation of better apps

    By Gwerigthetroll
    There is no connectivity between this app and your black library account where you have been making purchases for years. So anything you buy here doesn’t transfer back either. You’re safer buying from the website and transferring to iTunes. A shame that more effort didn’t go into this.
  • Love this app

    By Bohomit
    Best way to keep up with many of the great books in the black library at really nice price point. I have experienced only one bug with the chapters not working and that was a few versions ago so it might be resolved.
  • Unstable

    By WritersBloq81
    I wanted to like this app, but unfortunately it’s got stability issues. After about 40 minutes or so the audio will begin to skip and eventually the app will crash. It’s especially unstable if you attempt to run another app while you’re listening. Unfortunate because otherwise it’s a fairly convenient way to listen to Black Library books.
  • Great for catching up

    By Whydogsdontgotoheaven
    I had fallen behind on the Horus heresy, and I was pleased to find this app. I have a 2-3 hour commute everyday, and I have breezed through many books. However, I feel it would be nice if they would incorporate the ebook portion of this. Apple charges way to much for the ebooks when compared to the black library version. Help your followers out!
  • Finally fixed!

    By Deaa17
    Now that I can finally skip chapters and pick my time in the audi track. I can recommend this app. Linking the pic and app purchase would bump my rating to five stars.
  • Avoid - can't link iOS/PC purchases!

    By Psychor
    Purchases made via the web store and those made via the iOS app cannot be linked. This is a huge oversight, especially since you can't get the iOS purchases off of your device to play on a PC, etc. 🙄
  • Awesome BL option

    By Lazyb8s
    Outside of not being able to download the files to my iTunes account, this app does what it says. I have had none of the glitches the others have posted. I even had to change devices and no problems there either. Best part for me, it's that the files are cheaper than mp3 or CD.
  • Can't link with BL account

    By DBsevu
    If you've purchased Black Library titles in the past, you can't play them here, not can you play titles purchased in-app on a pc
  • Conveniently inconvenient

    By Volcomnjnja
    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.
  • It's pretty awesome

    By Blangir
    I really like it, for what it is I enjoy what it has to offer no other app I have found gives you access to such great stories. some flaws like skipping to other chapters or if you buy bulk you can't skip to other books but I really enjoy it non the less! Great app
