I'm an avid Warhammer reader, probably have picked up just about 95% of what the Black Library puts out, and this is NOT one of their better products. There are other much more entertaining short story books, like Tales of the Old World, Thunder and Steel, and Death and Dishonor. I think think maybe there was one short in Age of Legend that I found enjoyable and to be honest, I can't really remember the which one it was. I just found either the characters were not that interesting or compelling and or the story lines as well. They lacked a certain substance, intrigue, or action sequences. I'd pass on this one...if there are other titles available to you I'd pick one of those.

I am not that familiar with the Warhammer universe. So I am not sure if the books have been simple previews of other material to come or if there are books already out that relate to the short stories. Maybe someone that read the book and is more familiar with the other various books can enlighten us if there are books related to the stories.

Overall the stories were fantastic, in particular 'The Last Charge' because you should be careful what you wish for. Little moral lesson.
The Ninth Book was the most interesting since it gives you a great vampire perspective and I really want to read more about that story arc.
The City is Theirs was a bloody and heart wrenching short story. Great characters and the sacrifices they have to endure, willingly and not.
The Second Sun was the other most tempting, after The Ninth Book, in regard to the mystery it discusses but keeps hinting at an even bigger mystery.
Last but not least Aenarion was the single best prelude that should be read before the Elven Sundering trilogy. The suffering and madness that sprung up around him drove him into the choice he made.
Other than that, a great Black Library book that is a great read.

The current Time of Legends series:
- The Sundering Trilogy (Elf)
- The War of Vengeance Trilogy (Dwarf)
- The Rise of Nagash Trilogy (ancient humans)
- Blood of Nagash Trilogy (early human empire)
- The Legend of Sigmar Trilogy (human Empire)
- The Black Plague (human empire)
- Age of Legend book

The latest anthology series entitled "Age of Legend" takes us to the ancient days of Kemri where a man goes in search of his love making her way in the desert and besiged by Nagash's undead army. We watch as a dwarven kingdom faces against the blood god bride is a fight for death and something called the "Blood Eagle". We witness the dark secerts of the Flames wizards of the empire and one's desire to gain lost knowledge on something called "The Second Sun" and the last wizard ever to perform it before his order came to be.
We watch as Averland is besiged by Gorbad and his endless tide of WAHHHH and the Count who must defend the it to the last. Going to the winter lands of Kislev we see a mercenary band taking refugee within an old castle only to be surronded by chaos warriors and thier only way out is a deal with a vampire who desires something within the castle itself.
All this plus many more short stories from the "Age of Legends". So check out this novel today!

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 of Black Library. Warhammer Fantasy is one of the best fantasy universes I've come across and the moralistic duality of its heroes and villains and everybody else is one of its biggest draws. Anthologies are a great place to start off reading in such big universes, and is especially true for Black Library fiction in particular, so combined with the fact that I had been waiting for Age of Legend for quite a while now, it was only natural that I was going to pick it up at Black Library Live last month. Mostly I was driven to read the stories by Josh Reynolds, Sarah Cawkwell, C. L. Werner, Gav Thorpe and Nick Kyme, authors I've enjoyed reading in the past and look forward to with great anticipation pretty much always.

The first story in the anthology is Paul S. Kemp's A Small Victory, a tale that is set in the lands near Nehekhara in the time of Nagash's rise to power. A short, good-paced, and punchy story, this was a good story from Paul, this being his first for Black Library. It gives a nice little teaser into the lives of people beyond just the lands of Nehekhara and is a very personal, moving story of a man trying to protect the woman he lives and his dutiful brother's attempts to keep him safe in turn.
