I'm not normally a fan of books based around villains, but I greatly enjoyed this one. I picked it up based on how much I liked Hinks' previous Warhammer novel Warrior Priest, especially considering how interesting he made the background of the Chaos-worshipping villain in that book. Definitely a solid read, in my opinion.

Brilliant dark fantasy in the grim world of Warhammer. Complex plot and memorable characters, with satisfying conclusion, which leaves the reader free to imagine what will happen.

While Sigvald is the main focus of the story, it's really the surrounding characters that make the book. There are quite a number of them, and they are well realized and interesting. There are a few varied plot threads going simultaneously in the book and it keeps everything interesting and moving at a brisk pace. Being that Sigvald is a follower of Slaanesh one of the gods of Chaos you know right from the beginning not to expect any kind of good or happy ending, but that doesn't make it any les ...more

A kind of superficial outsider's story involving Slaaneshi corruption. The best part in the novel is the heartbreaking betrayal at the end when a 'god' reveals itself.

It was a good read and I enjoyed it, it made a change from the warhammer 40k books I normally read.

Interesting description of the Chaos wastes, except of that, run-of-the-mill Warhammer Old World book

I have mild asthma, am slightly myopic and once suffered with gout, but I’m otherwise fully formed and can even jog over short distances. If my writing career ever really takes off I hope to invest in a nice footstool. Or maybe a firm beanbag. My ancestors include a bloodthir ...more
