Format: Paperback
This Warhammer novel was originally published in 1989 and I'm glad that Games Workshop have taken the decision to re-release the original novels. Zaragoz, like the other Brian Craig Warhammer novels, is pretty good stuff, atmospheric with that special Warhammer substance. The tale is narrated by Orfeo, a travelling player who tells of his tale in the little-known Estalian province of Zaragoz. Needless to say, he becomes entangled in a web of intrigue there.
This book is good, but not great, and like the other Brian Craig books, it's not quite up to the standard of Jack Yeovil's Genevieve novels. However it would suit anyone who enjoys the Warhammer world and anyone who plays the roleplaying game Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay could gather some ideas from this book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is my favourite Warhammer fantasy novel. It is not your standard fare, the tale of a bard caught up in events happening around him in a backwater town called Zaragoz. This is not world changing stuff, but for the inhabitants of this tiny town, and the protagoniosts involved it is a matter of life and death, power and corruption. It is the first novel in a trilogy of sorts by Brian Craig, albeit each novel is a standalone work. In my opinion this is the best of the bunch, though the other two are definitely worth a read.

It certainly helps to know and be familiar with the Warhammer world, though this is not essential. This is a novel on the periphery of that world and one in which no prior knowledge is required.

It is a tale of good and evil, magic and sorcery. It has, in my opinion, one of the best defences for evil given by the magician Semjaza that I have read, and the chapter where he and the hero Orfeo debate the nature of evil is very good indeed.

If you like the Warhammer world this is a fine novel. If you are not familiar I wou;ld still encourage you to give it a try. If you like it it will open up a whole new world of possibilities and great stories.
