Age of Legend is an anthology of tales devoted to one of the most interesting fantasy lands around – Warhammer! While I haven’t read many of the stories from this brainchild of Games Workshop, I have enjoyed a few, and that sword and sorcery fun led me to dig up this book of ten, pulse-pounding, gore-coated, sorcery-singed short stories. So let me tell you about them.


I realize that it is hard to find very intere

Warhammer was one of the best fantasy worlds ever: grim, dark and with a good dose of twisted humour, fatalism and heavy-metal awesomess.
In this very good anthology you can find all of that.

This is Paul Kemp's first step in Warhammer universe after his Forgotten Realms and Star Wars novels, a fantasy zombie-apocalypse with a great dark twisted ending.
A good debut, can't wait for a full lenght novel from him... Just a shame that after The End of Times

A Small Victory by Paul S. Kemp:
A very nice, very dark short story set during Nagash’s second war for Nehekhara. It follows a young man searching for his beloved at the forefront of the Nagash’s unloving armies, and man was it good! Wish they had done a little more with it, as I haven’t read any of Nagash’s glory in far too long!

Blood Raven by Sarah Cawkwell:
A very well done and insanely entertaining story about Valkia the Bloody and her war in the North by Sarah Cawkwell. I’ve always immense

As a rule I don't like story collections by games workshop.

Most of the time they are a bit pointless odds and ends that read as failed ideas that get bundled and sold for that extra cash grab.

This bundle would almost qualify for that category, it does have some stories that feel as pointless side tracks especially the ones whose lore content seriously differs from what has come to be accepted as canon. However the bundle does have several interesting stories with strong characters and little b

Shadowhawk reviews the first anthology for the popular Time of Legends meta-series for Warhammer Fantasy, a collection of short stories by new and old authors alike.

“A superb collection that collects together some of Black Library’s finest with an added dose of two new authors to the setting, Age of Legend is a great read.” ~The Founding Fields

As I mentioned in my review of Josh Reynolds’ Knight of the Blazing Sun back in February, I’ve been working on getting back into the fantasy fiction side

Hack and slash fantasy fiction from the Warhammer universe. No big surprises and some are straightforward, with Chaos frequently winning in the end, though there are nice pieces from the authors, such as Paul Kemp's. Even if some read like descriptions of various WH battles they are still well-written for the genre.

a good collection of short stories with grimdark endings and a healthy dose of fatalism.
