Konrad Warhammer Horror Book Review
Featured Book Review: Darkbound

Horror books Review
This is a classic Warhammer novel, classic in the sense it was originally published in the 80s and has been reprinted by Black Library. As such, the writing style of the book is different from the newer BL publications. The Warhammer world itself has evolved since the time this novel was originally published which creates some incongruities between the current world and what is presented in the book.
Konrad is a story about a young peasant boy thrust out into the larger world when his home village is destroyed. There is the suggesstion he may have a destiny and that the events happening around him are not all random.
My greatest complaint about the novel is the plotting, or perhaps the lack of it. Konrad does not act, he is acted upon. Events occur which push him around, but he rarely makes a decision. It has too much of foreordained destiny feel.
This novel is the first book in a trilogy and the ending is weak. The book doesn’t really have a conclusion, more it comes to the end of a scene and stops.
This is a Warhammer novel worth reading, but not exceptional.
