    1 thought on “Thunder and Steel

    1. A collection Dan Abnett stories, They richly capture the diversity in both thought and nature of the Old World. His description of battle is secondary only to his dialogue, which feels like it would fit naturally on a movie screen. While this was a compilation of his short novels, I am now more then ever decided upon reading more Warhammer novels.

    2. Not normally a fan of fantasy (although I've read a few here and there), but it was a Dan Abnett book, so I had to give it a go. I really enjoyed this book, especially the story of the White Wolves. Morgenstern was a particular favourite, although the battle for Maltane in the Gilead story was also brilliant! Hope there's going to be more White Wolves action, Dan?

    3. A sweet collection of Abnett's Warhammer Fantasy writing. He channels David Gemmell in some places and I really enjoy the characterizations over the weak plots but even Abnett's mediocre writing is better than some other writers good writing. I do enjoy the chaos stories though.

    4. I didn't like Gilead's Blood too much, but I really liked the Hammers of Ulrica and the Warhammer. I liked how Riders of the Dead started out, but I didn't really like the ending too much.

    5. Hammers of Ulric was a truly great collection of short stories, and Riders of the dead was the best Warhammer tale I have ever read. Great book!
