In the tunnels of Nagashizzar, a new threat to the realm of the undead is rising. Nagash must call upon all his reserves of power to defeat the skaven assault and continue his unholy reign. But when Nagash realises he can use his enemy for his own nefarious needs, an uneasy alliance is struck and a vast, nightmarish army is formed. The necromancer launches his final attack on the lands of Nehekhara, sweeping all before him. Only one man dare stand in his way - Alcadizzar, a peerless warrior and the leader of a defiant force. Their confrontation will not just decide the fate of Nehekhara, but of all the Old World.
Whenever one of the major players from the Warhammer world appears in their own series you know that there is going to be an epic story unfurl. Whilst some of the information has been known for years based on the timelines, the authors who have created the wonderful Time of Legends series have really gone to town to present something special for the readers time.
The characters come to life, they have great dialogue and when added to great pace, cracking outline alongside battle sequences makes this a series that is very hard to put down. In the past I have been harsh about this particular series and whilst I’ve not always seen eye to eye with it this title was a revelation and after taking the reader out of the box from the beginning allowed Lee a little more freedom than has previously been available.
All in a great piece to read and one that many others will love in conclusion to the series. Great stuff.
