Book Description

4 April 2005 Warhammer Novels
The tale of the young orphan Konrad and his quest to rid his land of foul beastmen and to discover the secret of his mysterious past is now reprinted for the first time as a collected omnibus with all three novels (Konrad, Shadowbreed and Warblade) in a great value package. His pask lost...His future uncertain...Konrad must face his destiny alone. Orphaned at an early age, Konrad's tempestuous life is further upheaved when his adoptive village is destroyed by the vile bestial servants of Chaos, leaving him cast adrift in a world of danger and adventure. Alone and hunted, the fierce young warrior sets off in search of the truth of his ancestry and the mysterious forces that seem to have a hand in his destiny. Konrad's adventures take him across the length and breadth of the Empire, from the majestic capital Altdorf, to the merchant city of Marienburg and even beyond, into the great Northern Wastes, home to dread servants of Chaos and maybe even to the roots of his shadowy past. Containing the classic novels Konrad, Shadowbreed & Warblade collected for the first time, the Konrad saga is a grandiose, sweeping fantasy in a dark and grim world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Konrad Saga 26 Jun 2013
By August
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had a few black library books from years ago and Konrad book one was among them, I had completely forgotten about them until I was tidying out my room.
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Crazy and unsatisfying in conclusion 9 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback
Back when this series was released in single books, and following on from such great series as Gotrek and Felix, Gaunt's Ghosts and The Vampire Genevieve books I purchased this series of books hoping for more of the same great stuff. What I got was a strange tale of an orphaned boy who becomes a hero through the intervention of various important mentor figures at various points in his youth to young adulthood. As the previous reviews explain, the story starts very well, and entices the reader to continue, but never really pursues this line. Having read American Psycho I personally don't mind a book which doesn't worry too much about standard procedures of sticking to a linear and clear plot with a few twists, followed by a satisfying ending. But this wasn't trying to be something so quirky, and just seemed to go wherever the hell it wanted to, but without any real purpose or drive. Possibly comparable to the Inquisition War Trilogy by Ian Watson in that it is different in nature to other Black Library books set within the Warhammer or Warhammer 40,000 universes respectively. But where that series was a masterpiece of Picasso-like mind-bending insanity, this is like a paint can on its side; it isn't clever art, it just needs to be sorted out before someone trips over it and realises that it isn't that great after all. Worth a read for dedicated Black Library fans, but otherwise don't worry too much about pursuing this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Konrad saga 2 Sep 2009
Format:Paperback
dont get me wrong, its not a bad book but personally for me its not my type of book. Even though its well written and not a bad book, it was a bit slow placed for me and i found i put the book down after about 200pages.
