The End Times are coming. With the hordes of Chaos marshalling in the north, Emperor Karl Franz leads his armies in defence of his realm. But when the worst happens and the Emperor is lost, it falls to Reiksmarshal Kurt Helborg to return to Altdorf, capital of the Empire, and prepare to meet the forces of the Ruinous Powers in a final battle for that ancient city. As plague spreads and the defences weaken, all seems lost, until help arrives from a most unexpected source... if Helborg can bring himself to accept it.

Picked this up after reading return of nagash. Story picks up fairly well. You get to follow battle after battle with little rest in between and can't wait to pick up the next one, return of kaine.
What I did wish would be more maps and links with short bios of some of the characters, not having read any previous novels or story it's hard to separate out all names and characters!
