FANTASY REVIEW: Warhammer Fantasy: The Legend of Sigmar - Graham McNeill

Release Date: 02/08/12


Sigmar is the greatest leader of men the world has ever known. By saving the high king of the dwarfs, he earned the eternal friendship of the mountain folk. When a mighty horde of orcs threatened his lands, he united the tribes of men to stand against them at Black Fire Pass. He broke the siege of Middenheim and pushed back the forces of Chaos. In defeating the great necromancer Nagash, he saved mankind and secured the future of his empire. His deeds are legend. This is his story.


I loved this series when it was released as individual titles but when it comes to the opportunity to purchase them as an all in one compendium you’re not only talking about value for money but also the fact that you don’t have to wait for the next part. This title is perhaps the ultimate Warhammer novel as it follows the start of mankind’s evolution into an Empire from the God King Sigmar.

As with Graham’s other writing the prose are sharp, its chock full of combat and as a reader you know that you’re going to get quality writing throughout. Add to this that the second book won him the David Gemmell Legend Award and all in you know that this is a must have all round. Great stuff.
