Default Age of Sigmar novels?

So, I have seen a ton about the 40k novels, which I absolutely adore greatly. As you guys have probably already guessed, I am very big into the whole Chaos thing and take it to heart.

My problem is that I haven't seen too many Age of Sigmar novels talked about in this forum and I'm wondering why.

I got an email today from Black Library talking about some of the new quick reads and noticed a group of them about a Chaos army and it looked really good. I'm used to reading Magic: The Gathering novels and I like the fantasy scene as well as certain Sci-Fi books. My thinking is that the Age of Sigmar novels are similar to the MTG novels, if anyone has read any of them, they may be able to fill me in.

I would really appreciate some insight on these series and if they're good, which Chaos oriented or themed ones would you recommend?

EDIT: I should also specify that I also mean WHFB novels as well as the AoS ones.

I actually have written a review for the first Age of Sigmar novel, War Storm, but it hasn't been released on Talk Wargaming yet. I'll check to see when it is going up.

Speak of the devil. I was actually looking for one of your reviews on any of the Realmgate Wars books... no luck, but I guess I know why now. Haha

Have you done any on any WHFB novels?

It's gone up now. Hope it's thought provoking, reading this novel certainly has made me really think about the story-telling potential of Age of Sigmar.

Great review! Is it possible to read the second and third books in the anthology without reading the first? Hah. I'll take your word for it.

Also, I don't know if you saw my edit above, but did you review any actual Warhammer Fantasy books?

I have, but not on Talk Wargaming;

All the reviews i've done over the years for Warhammer Fantasy are there. I plan on editing all those BL reviews and transplanting them to Talk Wargaming over time.

Right on. I've heard omen people say that the Chaos gods are more active in the Fantasy universe, leading me to believe that there can be more background and possibly better story lines in those books. Unfortunately I have no clue as to what the names of the Chaos books are!

Excellent reviews as always. Thank you for that link! I bookmarked it and will be checking it to see if my next read is on it. Unfortunately I saw a couple interesting titles that I didn't see you review, but that's okay! Maybe soon enough.

Personally, your review of Palace of the Plague God is my favorite!

I can only agree with your review LotN, bad writters quickly makes AoS feel very bland and boring, and its a setting that -DESPERATELY- needs more flavor beyond endless battles.

Fortunately Guy haley returns and continues his story in Ghal Maraz, as well Josh continuing his own sylvaneth story. So far Guy haley is really driving AoS plotwise.
Though I found it really funny that....

I'm curious if @Angel of Blood has read any of these?

Nah. Not all that interested in Age of Sigmar for the time being. I had a vague interest in Warhammer Fantasy as it was, but I really did enjoy the rich world, background and setting, immensely looking forward to the Total War game. But from what i've seen of Age of Sigmar. Nah.
