FANTASY REVIEW: Forged by Chaos - Clint Werner


All across the the Empire, the servants of Emperor Karl Franz's Griffon order are struggling to turn back the armies of Chaos. Two such heroes the witch hunter Udo and the warrior priestess Annaliese are caught up in the conflict as they journey into Reikland in trying to aid the war effort. At Altdorf, the capital of the Empire, the warriors of Karl Franz must make their stand lest all the land be lost to Chaos.


As you probably know by now, I’m a huge Warhammer fan and with me looking forward to the forthcoming Bounty Hunter compendium by Clint, this was a good way to fill in my time. Having read the previous novel by him on behalf of the chaos hordes (Blood for the Blood God) you pretty much get what’s on the tin alongside what you expect, lots of infighting, high gore factor and of course the paranoid double dealing that the followers of the ruinous power are famed for. It’s a tad simplistic but at times that just the type of novel that you want, something that you don’t have to think about but hits that fantasy spot that needs an itch at that time. Good fun, high octane with a body count Conan would be proud of.
