The war is over, and the Mortal Realms have all but fallen to Chaos... Khorgos Khul rampages across the fiery Realm of Aqshy, hunting down mortal kind to slaughter or subjugate to Khorne. His Goretide have crushed all resistance... until the storm. From the heavens hurtle paladins clad in gold.

After a long age of darkness, there is hope. Vandus must open the Gates of Azyr to unleash Sigmar’s righteous fury against the damned. Everything depends on his victory.

Actually picked up this book just to get a glimpse of the start of the age of Sigmar , and I was pleasantly surprised! Had me hooked right to the end. Definite recommendation for those wanting something to read while beginning with age of Sigmar :) and to those who want to read a great fantasy book.
Rushed, but a good start.
I enjoyed this book. It's short, and covers only a single battle, but it does give us a glimpse into the new AoS universe. I felt like this book read like a comic, rather than a novel, but I think that's a good thing, in this example at least. I simply cannot wait to read the next one.
The Age of Sigmar Begins!
This was a great introduction to the new background of Warhammer: Age of Sigmar. The only problem I have with the book is that it was pretty short for the price. I'm looking forward to learning more about these new realms.
