I actually thought I read it but as I started reading the first book I realised I hadn't.
The Book starts out in Konrad's early life and is slightly slow and at times a tiny bit of a bore but not so much that you want to put the book down and never open its pages again. I gets warmer and warmer so much so that I bought the saga book (because it was cheaper then buying the other two books) And I spent about a week every night reading the whole thing and it has to be said Its a good decent read, its hard to put down the book in some places and as you will see in other feedback I disagree that this isn't a really good book, and Im looking forward to reading it again. The ending is rushed and all through the book its a case of "she is or isn't she" but the ending is built up to be amazing then its like a bit of a rushed ending of the writers part, which in turn makes you wonder if there's going to be another book. but I don't think there will be. so I'd give the book on that basis 8 out of 10. The ending lets it down!
What makes matters worse, it starts so full of promise. The character has an interesting back story, as does one of the others of the village. The situations can be easily imagined, and nodded along with by someone familiar with the WFRP game. A shame it then goes downhill.
The characters interesting back story hardly gets a nod in the following two books. It can't be said to be fully explored at all. Instead it starts heading into ropey situations. As if the author had a mental breakdown or stroke or something, forgot the story they were going to spend a trilogy exploring, forgot whatever skill they exhibited in book one, and also kinda missed out on evoking any Warhammeryness too.
Awful. The worst of the Warhammer novels. And some of the others ain't great, so that's saying something. Avoid it like the plague.
