I did actually mean WHFB novels as well, but I saw the AoS novels in my email.

Have you read any of the WHFB novels at all or did you just not get into those either?

It seems like a ton of people feel that way. I really liked WHFB over 40k because of the magic you could use and win an entire battle from it. Now 40k has the Psychic phase and pretty much does the same thing and it got rid of WHFB all together. Big bummer.

I just figured since I read a ton of the 40k novels, maybe the WHFB novels were just as good.

What I like is that some of the heros of Chaos actually show up in the 40k universe, after tens if not hundreds of thousands of years.

Living in the Eye of Terror warps and stretches time incredibly. For most of the Traitor Legions, the Horus Heresy is still in recent memmory. From what I recall, it feels barely a few centuries ago for most Traitor Legionaries.

And regarding older Warhammer Fantasy books. The long running Gotrek and Felix series is pretty much the primary whfb series to dig into. And the Time of Legends books is also quite worth picking up. In particular the awesome Black Plague and Nagash series.

Practically everything by C.L. Werner, what he writes is pure gold in warhammer fantasy. His Skaven series with Thanquol, his Brunner series, his Witch Hunter series. The Red Duke. Steven saville's Von Carstein series. The ancient Drachenfels series with Genevive the vampire. Skarsnik by Guy Haley.

I've been looking at a couple of the C.L. Werner books that look good.

What is your opinion of Valkia the Bloody by Sarah Cawkwell?

Or even Blood for the Blood God and Palace of the Plague God?

Yes, they are some quite good CL. Werner books. Palace of the Plague God was quite enjoyable, and so was his other chaos books Wulfrik and Blood for the Blood God. The last one Ive reread multiple times. They really give you a strong feeling for the norse and their culture.

Valkia is a decent read, if fairly short, novella sized. TBH its good, but it doesnt compare with the above books.

I've read the Sundering trilogy from the Time of Legends series. Figure I'll read the Sigmar and Nagash ones too at some point. Keep getting told to read Malus Darkblade, thought apparently no real conclusion to the series because of the End Times. Kind of want to read Archaon as well. But not much more than that.

I haven't heard of Wulfrik, so that's a new one I can look up! Thanks!

Dont ignore his thanquol books, they are some of the funniest reads. Thanquol and Temple of the Serpent. I dont remember if there was a third or not.

I will be sure to check them out!

What do you know about the Chaos series like Claws of Chaos, Blades of Chaos, and Heart of Chaos?

That series is also a good read, but theres better and more engaging reads, aka the CL. Werner chaos books imho.

Awesome, thanks for the recommendations!

I've also been looking into the vampire books too. Maybe for something different. It just seems like a whole new genre of novels. As does the entire Fantasy collection. After reading the 40k books for so long, it just seems so different now.
