Format: Mass Market Paperback
THE STORY:
A brash young Imperial noble, a vampire girl and a fellowship of rogues and heroes undertake a quest to destroy the evil sorcerer Drachenfels. Twenty five years later that noble hires the genius playwrite Detlef Sierck to write and stage a reconstruction of the adventure in Castle Drachenfels itself.
WHAT'S GOOD:
I wasn't expecting much when I started reading this book, Warhammer novels tend to be all blood and guts and little depth. I was very pleasantly surprised, however, to find myself reading a novel of subtlety and humour (as well as blood and guts!). The characters are all well realised, being perfectly believable in their vanities and fears, and the description of Drachenfels Castle was so evocative and delightfully gothic that for a moment I thought I was reading Bram Stoker's masterpiece. Another excellent element to this book is that you always think you know where the story is going next, but then Yeovil twists things right back on you and takes you by surprise. Finally, I'd like to say that, despite my premonitions of a cheap B-movie sorcerer, Drachenfels turned out to be a genuinely chilling villain of fearsome power.
WHAT'S BAD:
Nothing stands out as being particularly wrong with this book. The gore and entrails is a bit overdone in places, but as I say, that's standard for a Warhammer book. Also, I managed to predict the final twist about a chapter in advance (see if you can too).
An unmissable read for fans of Warhammer or simply lovers of gothic fantasy.

Format: Paperback
A Brilliant story really well written. It keeps you guessing until the end.
Many of the warhammer books are only of interest to fans of warhammer, this book, however, is brilliant and can be enjoyed by everyone.
I cannot recomend it enough. It is a brilliant fantasy story, but unlike many other fantasies, it only has a few hundred pages and you won't get bogged down over 600 pages and then have to buy the next 5 installments. You can just pick this up, get into it straight away, enjoy it immensely, and then move onto a new book

By FAMOUS NAME VINE VOICE on 31 Dec. 2008
Format: Paperback
I read this as part of the bumper volume 'Genevieve'. I mistakenly purchased that book thinking it was one long novel, as I don't normally read books containing more than one story. However, it's just as good to know that there are several within that volume, and 'Drachenfels' was the first.

I have always wanted to get into this kind of fantasy fiction, (a little put off by the category called: 'The Black Library' though! ) but have always been deterred by the massively thick volumes they always seem to be in this particular genre, and also their notoriety for being riddled with difficult and 'unpronounceable' names which does not help.

Though I was not entirely sure what was going on in this some of the time, I have to say, that with regards to 'atmosphere' and vivid scenes, this was a wonderful read! At times, I really felt I was 'there' within the castle, passageways and halls. This was true escapism for me - even if I didn't always understand it all, and so I would certainly read more by this Author.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
A highly entertaining read! Although published by UK gaming giant Games Workshop, Drachenfels manages to avoid many of the high clichés associated with books of a similar vein (it manages to poke fun at most of them at some stage or other). Very amusing and easy to read the characters still mange to exude a kind of life. Dark when needed and not to straight faced the rest of the time. Well worth it.
