Dan Abnett - is a well known comics writer and an author whose WarHammer books have sold by the bucketload now turns his hand as his own originated fiction and has come up with something very interesting indeed. Triumff: Her Majesty's Hero is a fantasy set in a modern Elizabethan age, an alternative present extrapolated from and entrenched in a contemporaneous Shakespearan era. Fusing this already heady concoction with the existence of magic makes for a swashbuckling adventure all round. Trimff: Her Majesty's Hero is a trade paperback release.
"Pratchett goes swashbuckling in the hotly anticipated original fiction debut of the multi-million selling Warhammer star.
Triumff: Her Majesty’s Hero is a ribald historical fantasy set in a warped clockwork-powered version of our present day … a new Elizabethan age, not of Elizabeth II but in the style of the original Virgin Queen. Throughout its rollicking pages, Sir Rupert Triumff drinks, dines and duels his way into a new Brass Age of Exploration and Adventure.
The first original novel from multi-million selling tie-in king Dan Abnett, it has all the swashbuckling action of his most popular writing, but also a wild sense of humour – believe us, in all seriousness some of the diabolical gags he’s wrangling in this novel would kill a less experienced writer."
