Much better than expected!

I got this book because I'm a huge warhammer 40k fan, as well as a Doctor who fan. While I like 40k, I'm pretty new to the warhammer Age of Sigmar story line. Combine this with I feel that most of the 40K books I have read have been pretty lack luster. Stories need to be relatable to draw the audience in. in 40K, I have always been disappointed in the character development, because the main characters commonly aren't human, and they are being put in situation that are completely unimaginable in our world.

None of this was a problem in this book. The fact that it was AoS seemed to make it easier to have a relatable character in a more fantasy genera that already exists. I was immediately drawn into the story, and while I know the book was short, I ended up finishing it in 1 sitting. It really did a great job at pacing and didn't make me feel like it was written for a little kid. Highly suggested for all ages.

Great Kids novel

Great story, held true to the narrative and lore of Age of Sigmar but worded so kids can get a good grasp on the overwhelming amount of world building there is.

Ok I was surprised how much I enjoyed it.

I have to admit, I was not happy with the initial change to the game. It drove me away.
Now I am just learning what was actually done to the Beloved Old World...and l kinda like it. So I may have to blow the dust off my Rats and finish painting them.

While this is not what could be considered Great. For the target audience(younger readers...aka.kids), it is a good start

And as I am a kid (with 30+ years of experience). I feel confident saying, keep up the good work.

Rollicking good kids book

This is a good inoffensive story that shows the mortal realms of the Age of Sigmar from the point of view of a group of children, albeit gifted ones. It's not too long, has good characters and nice pantomime villains. Would be great for young kids or just to fill some time with a slightly different take on Warhammer.
