Recommends it for: people who are tired of reading complicated and master classed books
You know that feeling that you get when you have read too many best seller/extremely good books? It's kind of like eating too much fancy food, after a while you feel like junk food. Blackhearts is probably the best junk food you will ever get. It has a simple plot, tons of action, and lots of humor. So if you feel like junk food then read The Blackhearts Omnibus

De retour aux sources :)!!! Après plusieurs livres d'auteurs originaux et d'oeuvre non-liés à des jeux, j'ai décider de recommencer à lire du Warhammer. Qu'est-ce qui a bien pu motivé cette décision. C'est simple, un nouvel auteur a pris possession de la série Félix et Gotrek. Comme une bonne majorité de gens, j'ai décidé de boudé cet auteur. Premièrement parce que les critiques disaient qu'on ne reconnaissait pas les personnages et deuxièmement parce que je trouvais que l'auteur avait affaiblit ...more

A juicy two day read! The series keeps getting better as you read along, and ends in a Three Stooges esque death ball that will leave you exhausted and exhilarated. Not as grim-dark as some of the other Warhammer Fantasy books out there: plenty of humor and silliness to go about!

I loved this Omnibus from start to finish. Very well written with great characters with the perfect amount of intrigue, action and humour! I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested into fantasy worlds.

I really enjoy fantasy books and this is one of my favourites. I've never read another Warhammer book, I tried reading one once and I didn't even make it 3 chapters in before I got rid of it. However, I definitely want to read more of Nathan Longs books.

The book was well written and the characters were interesting. The story was fantastic and the action was constant. My sisters have read the book as well and really enjoyed it. My brother and I have both read the book at least three times and I a

The Blackhearts series may be one of my favorite fantasy series of all time. Nathan Long does an excellent job creating interesting characters cut from the cloth of the grim Warhammer Fantasy setting by Games Workshop. The premise is simple and seen before -- a ragtag bunch of miscreants and criminals are forced to work together, hoping for a chance at redemption while in reality, they aren't given any other option.

The stories are compelling, the characters are interesting, and the action, drama

Take the ideas, concepts and characters of the Warhammer and then you take the rough idea of both The Dirty Dozen and The Devils Brigade and you would begin to get the idea of The Blackhearts. From start to bloody finish this set of boos is beyond amazing and good. The black humor of our hero and his companions, the situations they are forced into, and just the forces that aline themselves against them. All are above and beyond the call of what makes such a good and memorable book! A MUST READ!! ...more

Very entertaining, far from a masterpiece but more than I expected from a fantasy novel inspired by the RPG / Miniature Wargaming.

The characters are a lot of fun, the world is both deadly, scary but at the same time, fun.

I am only sad the series is too short, I would love to see more adventures of the Blackhearts!

This was a GREAT book with easily relatable and likeable cast of characters. They were also not your standard "good guys" which is a huge plus. It kind of reminds me of Villians by Necessity by Eve Forward. Almost nonstop action in this book and I could not put it down. This goes in my top 10 books for sure.

My first book i the War hammer series and I was a bit disappointing. Some of the plot twists involving the main chars just ended up annoying me.

Average rogues with all the blessings and foibles humanity is subject to make these adventures humorous,entertaining and heartfelt.
