It was an good read. You are rooting for the heroes to win the day in this dark and bleak landscape that is Warhammer.
Great book, good story, nice twist at the end. Exciting book in Warhammer mode. Of all the Empire Army novels I've read, this is the one that really brought the world of the Empire to life for me. Good characters, good action sequences and a few little twists and turns to keep things fresh.
I had high expectations for this novel and it didn't disappoint at all. The Empire is once again under attack. This time a Chaos champion named Mormius leads a horde of chaos warriors south against the Imperial army generalled by the Iron Duke, Fabian Wolff.
Fabian is the brother of Jakob, the eponymous Warrior priest, and their story and conflict provides the internal struggle and conflict of the novel, while the war supports the external conflict. This neat geometric pairing brother against brother, chaos against order, North verses South, sanity verses insanity is repeated throughout the novel, creating a well-balanced narrative, dependent on several point-of-view characters, juxtaposed against their polar opposites.
The narrative begins with Mormius, a beautiful and cruel Chaos champion gathering his troops for another attack. Mormius is on a collision course with the Iron Duke.
The story then shifts to a small village where a fanatic witch hunter is about to burn a sister of Shallya at the stake. Hinks competently uses multiple points of view and flashbacks to tell an intimate tale of the Old World that touches on most of the emblematic themes and symbols fluff of the Gothic series.
He expertly handles both battles and intimate encounters, while creating well-rounded, full bodied characters. Although Jakob Wolff represents order, Hinks seems to have a real understanding or sympathy of Chaos. His descriptions of daemons, demons, and marauders are vibrant and memorable; whereas his descriptions of some of the more egregious fanatics of the Empire border on either contempt or ridicule.
As an aside, it is this balance between chaos and order and the richness of the intellectual property that makes the Black Library novels so satisfying.
Warrior Priest is a worthy entry in the Empire Army series; an outstanding first outing from Darius Hinks. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. DPReview Digital Photography.
Warrior Priest by Darius Hinks. Book Review
Since then he has carved a bloody swathe through the Warhammer world in works such as "Island of Blood", "Sigvald" and "Razumov's Tomb". Recently, he has ventured into the Warhammer 40, universe with the Space Marine Battles novella 'Sanctus'. He plans to return to the grim darkness of the far future after he has finished telling the tale of the forest god Orion. Warrior Priest. Darius Hinks.
Xathrodox86 reviews: "Warrior Priest" by Darius Hinks. January 29, I always liked Warrior Priests. Funny, since personally I'm not a very religious or spiritual man, but for some reason, in almost every fictional universe, the idea of holy men and women fighting evil in the name of their gods, appeals to me. Like I've said, there's something undeniably cool about those type of heroes, so I did not hesitate in picking up the "Warrior Priest" novel, written by Darius Hinks, which also granted him the Morningstar award David Gemmell Legend Awards. Fortunately, once again my choice has been a right one, as "Warrior Priest" was easily one of the best Warhammer Fantasy books that I've ever read.
Warrior Priest by Darius Hinks (A Review)
Just as with our last, this review is an interesting one too and we hope you like this one as well. My first book by Darius Hinks was Sigvald , a wonderfully mad, dark fantasy novel about a Slaaneshi champion and his adventures in the Chaos Wastes. It was with excitement and great expectations I went on to read his first novel, Warrior Priest. We are introduced to the main characters as they save a woman from being burned at the stake for witchcraft.
