It is broken into three books, Gilead's Blood, Hammers of Ulric, and The Riders of the Dead. After these three there is a pair of short stories and brief graphic novel. The two stories are fun reads, though the comic, The Warhammer, was kind of weak. Might look better in full color though.
This book starts rather slowly, but picks up steam toward a very climactic final chapter. The focus is on the Elf Prince Gilead and his stewart as they journey around the Old World. They have dealings with many races and factions in their travels and the stories are told from the perspective of a storyteller in a tavern. Most of the stories I would rate from fair to good, but the final chapter is quite a fun climax to the book.
Hammers of Ulric
The author describes writting this book as if he were writing for a team of superheroes. The action in this book is more varied, as it shifts from war novel to murder mystery and back again. The knights of Ulric make for fearsome warriors, but my favorite parts were chapters told from the perspective of a priest of Morr, a caretaker of the dead. The seemingly unconnected adventures in the book gradually unveil a grand conspiracy to destroy the city of Middenheim and it falls on the characters to join together and save the day. This book was so much fun to read and probably my favorite of the three.Read more ›
Several of the stories stand alone, and others are part of a group but can be read separately. These are all the medieval Warhammer universe, no Astartes, Imperial Guard, or bolters. Everything is horseback and blades or hammers. I felt that the middle stories dealing with the White Wolves of Middenheim were the best. The others were a little overlong or not so good.

I'm a huge Dan Abnett fan -- I love all of his Warhammer 40k books. But this one, so far -- I've not yet finished the second story -- has been very uneven. Read morePublished on October 11, 2011 by The Bruce
Although this is a collection of Dan Abnett's early Black Library Warhammer Fantasy work, it is excellent. Read morePublished on May 2, 2011 by D. Nix
