An action-packed omnibus revealing the dark majesty of three infamous Champions of Chaos: Sigvald, Valkia the Bloody and Egrimm van Horstmann.
In the cold wastes of the North, the followers of Chaos gather in their thousands, eager to lay waste to the soft lands of the south. These bloodthirsty, undisciplined warriors can only be controlled by the fiercest of leaders – champions who have risen through the ranks by dint of their infamous deeds to become the favoured of the Dark Gods. This omnibus collects together the stories of three such mighty leaders – Prince Sigvald the Magnificent, the Gorequeen of Khorne Valkia the Bloody, and the rogue wizard Egrimm van Horstmann. And be warned: though the journey to greatness is long and hard, the battle to maintain such a position of power amid the servants of Chaos is never-ending... This omnibus contains the novels Valkia the Bloody by Sarah Cawkwell, Sigvald by Darius Hinks and Van Horstmann by Ben Counter, along with additional bonus short stories.
