I was surprisingly drawn into this one. I always seem to have an unfounded dread picking up a warhammer novel just incase it reads like some greasy haired spotty nerds playing a war game around a table in games workshop but they never seem to disappoint and Luthor Huss is easily the best one I have had the pleasure to read yet. Luthor himself is an excellent character and very much worthy of the title ‘warhammer hero’ but the author cleverly tells the tale as a third party view and also writes a ...more
Pretty top stuff. I read an awful lot of genre fiction - too much, one might say. So it's always a pleasent surprise when I come across an author who understand that genre is no reason to slack off - but is, in fact, a way to maximise the impact of their tale using the familiar fantasy iconography as a suitable framework. Indeed, structurally, there's nothing too remarkable about this novel - (al)most every goes along according to script, and there are (nearly) no surprises. So what is there to ...more
As far as fantasy worlds go, Warhammer has enough uniqueness to stand out in the crowd. Yes, there are elves and orcs. But there are also guns and the most populous human nation, known simply as "The Empire", is refreshingly Germanic in influence. The Empire's worship of the God-Emperor Sigmar allows for clever parody of dogmatic Christian churches through the ages, with special focus on corruption, abuse of power, and the inability to uphold the teachings of the very God they claim to follow. T ...more

Being the latest entry to the Warhammer Heroes series, I was quite thrilled to read more about the Hammer of Sigmar, as name-giving character Luthor Huss is called by some. Even more so because the novel's author is no other than Chris Wraight, whose Swords of the Emperor duology in the same series has already blown me away. Wraight managed to not only make the Empire appeal to me, but also present a genuinely interesting and extensive plot t

Original Post:

The Warhammer Heroes series contains the first Warhammer Fantasy novel that I’ve ever read, Wulfrik by CL Werner, and I was blown away by the fantastic novel that Werner had invented, leaving me only wanting more from not just this series, but the entire Warhammer Fantasy world. This is partly why, when a new Warhammer Heroes novel arrives at my doorstep, you can feel free to bet your life savings that I’ll read it. Eventually. This novel se

After the last three books focusing on Chaos heroes it was nice to once again read about a "good guy". Luthor Huss is a warrior priest of Sigmar who travels the realm smiting evil where he finds it. Lately there has been a lot of evil in need of smiting. Undead, beastmen, and the like have been wiping out quite a few villages. A Witch Hunter by the name of Lukas Eichmann has also been investigating these uprisings and eventually crosses paths with Huss. Pretty much your standard fantasy fair, go ...more
I have to remember that I can't seem to get along with Warhammer books.
Nice and dark. Not quite as awesome as Gotrek but darn close. =)
Great quick action-filled read, always love to come back to the dark world of Warhammer. Gritty and visceral as ever and Wraight does a great job of describing both the external and internal conflicts of the two primary characters. Look forward to seeing more from Huss and Lukas.
Straight forward but surprisingly involving fun. Wraight weaves a great story from 2 different perspectives and neatly ties it all up at the end. This is the first non-40K Warhammer I've read and I'll definitely try some more based on this.

I liked it...its basically a book of badasses....Luthor Huss...warrior priest swinging his huge golden flamed warhammer...destroying the beastmen and corruption of the was just written fun to read....
Christoph Weber
One of the worst Warhammer books I've read so far, too straight-forward and devoid of humor
While the finale left my with more vagueness then I cared for, it was still a very good story with a good build-up.
A pleasant surprise by Black Library; the story is well-paced and doesn't fizzle at the end!
The "test" towards the end was utter crap
