An interesting trilogy, where the writer matured while writing - the third book is by far the best of the three. Having played RPG in this world, I found the description consistent and interesting. Characters are a bit shallow and two-dimensional, especially in the first book that presents a narrative in tandem with medieval viking sagas. The most bloated part was the battle descriptions (and there were a lot of those) which focused a lot on what actors were doing instead of advancing the plot - ...more

The Legend of Sigmar, written by Graham McNeill, is an omnibus containing the fantasy Warhammer's trilogy about the Empire's founder with an addition of a short story in the book's final part.

In the world of Warhammer the name Sigmar and the legends of his exploits are pretty well known, so, being more a fan of a good adventure than of hack and slash this trilogy (Heldenhammer, Empire and Godking) 'Heldenhammer' sets out bringing together the rise of Sigmar from his first battle to the battle of the Black Fire Pass (very significant in the timeline of the warhammer setting) throughout Sigmar is obviously the main focus, the dialogue stays realistic and to my surprise Sigmar is ...more

I never thought that I would get into Warhammer Fantasy. I had a good number of fantasy series that I was into(Sword of Truth, Song of Ice and Fire, LoTR, etc.) but after I saw that Black Library released these GIGANTIC(literally the biggest things on my bookshelf) omnibus editions, with amazing artwork, for only $17.50, I had to check it out.
The trilogy had me from the get go, I fell in love with Reikdorf, Sigmar, Wolfgart, Ravenna, etc.
All of the characters feel real, from Sigmar in his flawed

This is a solid read, especially for those who enjoy the warhammer realm. My only complaint is the ending. Not what happens, but more so how quickly it happen. It felt like the author had no time to finish the book the way he wanted to, and just threw a simple ending together to give the story come closure.

Never thought I would like anything about the Empire, but this book gives a very good overview of how the Empire began.
