Default 'The Return of Nagash' - butcher's bill of this fantastic read butcher's bill.

'The Return of Nagash' is wondrous, but the butcher's bill of famous characters (including from different WFB novels) is too big

Heavy spoilers to follow:



This book is fantastic

Yep, one of the top Wh fantasy reads in a long time, ties in with soooo many books.

Josh Reynolds himself made a recommended reading list prior to Return of Nagash.

'Tis an awesome book, no doubt about it. But believe me, with what i've been told about what Nagash does after he's resurrected, ALL of what we've read will be blown away by what comes next. Seriously, Nagash does nothing small or by halves and I think the next book will show just what a God of Necromancy is capable of when let loose in the mortal world.

The only thing that could have been done better is Clan Mordkin. Read C.L Werner's Black Plague series and compare Clan Mordkin in that to how they are here, they are much better and much much creepier.

Words_of_Truth has been kind enough to provide copious amounts of spoilers on Nagash's post-resurrection activities. Warning: These are unbelievably EPIC! and game-changing, only read if you really have to know what he's been up to.

Sounds mental. Gonna be snapping this, and Josh Reynolds' other novels up ASAP.

Two questions though. Is The Return of Nagash a standalone novel or the opener of a new series? Like, I'm getting opener vibes, but the huge number of spoilers in the other thread is definitely odd. Also, is Josh Reynolds any relation of Anthony Reynolds? I've been off the BL bandwagon for a while and this may be old news to some, lol.

Decent. Any idea who will be writing the second novel and what they'll be writing about?

No idea. I asked Josh that very question, also whether or not the End Times would be a series of novels dealing with different events like the Horus Heresy or if this was the start of a new series about Nagash in particular, and he said he couldn't say. The spoilers in the other thread are from the Warhammer: Nagash background book. The Return of Nagash is about Mannfred von Carstein and Arkhan the Black trying to resurrect Nagash.
