"'Superior dark fantasy from the grim world of Warhammer.' - Locus"
Reseña del editor
Forced to escape his life of debt and debauchery, Bretonnian nobleman Florin d'Artaud tricks his way onto a flotilla headed to the fabled lands of Lustria. Posing as a veteran military commander, Florin's immediate concerns are to get his troops under control and survive the long, dangerous sea voyage. Once they arrive in lustria's steamy jungles, the mercenaries find far more than they barained for and a simple treasure hunt turns into a sinister expedition for forgotten lore. But the ancient guardians of the junle will not let their secrets be plundered so freely.Ver Descripción del producto

The book goes a long way towards fleshing out Lustria and the Lizardmen. While keeping the fun and roguish charm of Florin and Lorenzo. It has all the Warhammer staples: lovable rouges, taverns, wenches, sorcerers, fops and crooks, inhuman foes, dwarfs, and impossible dilemmas with absurd escapes (and, of course, NO romance). Back in the day, I built a beautiful Dogs of War army based on this book. Played a bunch of Lustria based battles and a few campaigns. Then, GW killed off Dogs of War, Lustria rules, and also my undead pirates, and I lost interest in the game. Point is, the book ties in perfectly with the hobby. If you are a Warhammer fiction fan, with any interest in Lizzies or Lustria, this is a must read. Quick, fun, engaging, and imaginative.
And after this, it's one silly plot construct after another, as Florin and his "manservant" get out from under the thumb of their bosses with relative ease, con their way onto one of the ships, where Florin manages to land a job as a captain to a group of mercenaries by telling one of the most bogus battle stories I've ever heard. And to make matters worst, his friend is supposed to be keeping an eye on him, but for some inexplicable reason, they're put on different ships. Give me a break!
I won't go on with more illogical elements, but needless to say, there are many more. And that's not all...
There are several illegal Point-of-View shifts, where the author jumps from one viewpoint to another in sequential paragraphs. I've never seen so many in one book. All the authors and editors I've ever talked to say this is a definite no-no, so I wonder just how much time was spent on this novel before it was published. It's a shame, because most warhammer novels are much tighter than this. Admittedly, this is the author's first book, but there's no excuse for some of its problems.
It's only saving grace is that, despite its POV problems, the author's style is relatively simple and easy to read, and that's a good thing. It doesn't take long to get through.
I can only recommend this one to those who MUST read a book about lizardmen and Lustria. Otherwise, there are far better warhammer novels out there.
