Book 2 in the Realmgate Wars series, published 2016
Publisher: Games Workshop
This 240-page novel continues the thrilling saga of the Realmgate Wars with two tales of the Stormcast Eternals as they seek new allies and an ancient artefact to aid in their battle against the Ruinous Powers. The cover depicts a heroic Knight-Azyros brandishing his Warding Lantern, above a scene of battle from the Realm of Life depicting the Hallowed Knights locked in combat with the plague hordes of Nurgle.
Sigmar’s hammer has been part of Warhammer since the very start (it’s right there in the name) so the battle to get it back is a big deal – and it’s a massive story, full of heroism and treachery and lots and lots of kick-ass action. Plus over in the Realm of Life, find out who the Sylvaneth are and – crucially – whose side they’re on.
Still in search of allies for their war against Chaos, the Stormcast Eternals brave the Ghurlands to parley with the greenskinned servants of Gorkamorka: the orruks.
Zephacleas and his Astral Templars have been sent into the wildest regions of the Ghurlands to seek out Gorkamorka, the double-headed god of the orruks and one-time ally of Sigmar in the age before Chaos. However, their search is interrupted in the boneyards of the gargants by the Tzeentchian sorceress Sharizad, who quests for a powerful daemonsword. Aided by the black-clad Sons of Mallus, the Astral Templars must brave the Howling Labyrinth to stop the weapon from falling into the wrong hands, and unexpected allies in this mission might lead them close to their original goal: meeting the fist of Mork and the fist of Gork.
