The Age of Sigmar has dawned, and across the Mortal Realms, the forces of Order and Chaos battle for supremacy.
It is not only the Stormhosts of Sigmar who fight for control of the Mortal Realms. Many other peoples, those pledged to Order and others to Chaos, wage war on behalf of gods and kings. From the grim duardin Fyreslayers of the mountain lodges to the enigmatic and otherworldly sylvaneth of Alarielle's court, and even the wretched skaven of diseased Clans Pestilens – all must play their part in the struggles to come, forging their own legends in the Age of Sigmar... This diverse omnibus contains stories by some of Black Library's most popular authors, including David Annandale, Guy Haley, David Guymer, Robbie MacNiven, Josh Reynolds, Rob Sanders and Gav Thorpe.
