The Garden of Plague

Black Library has revealed the cover for my forthcoming Age of Sigmar novel, Hallowed Knights: Plague Garden, due out in June. Take a look!


From the site:

As the War for the Realm of Life continues, Lord-Castellant Lorrus Grymn leads the battered remnants of the Steel Souls warrior chamber against the sargasso-citadels of the Verdant Bay. The Hallowed Knights claim victory, but at a terrible cost – Grymn is lost to Realm of Chaos. Now Gardus, newly-reforged and fresh from the destruction of the Scabrous Sprawl, must lead his warriors into the foetid heart of Nurgle’s realm in search of the Lord-Castellant, where they must once more brave the horrors of the Realm of Decay…

As you can see from the blurb, Hallowed Knights: Plague Garden features several characters who’ve appeared before. Lord-Celestant Gardus and the Steel Souls made their first appearance in The Realmgate Wars: War Storm, and were joined by Lord-Castellant Grymn in The Realmgate Wars: Ghal Maraz.

Grymn and the surviving Steel Souls continue to fight alongside Alarielle the Everqueen against the servants of the Plague God in The Realmgate Wars: Wardens of the Everqueen, even as the warriors of the Steel Souls take the fight to the enemy in the short story, “The Resolute” in Legends of the Age of Sigmar: Sylvaneth

Too, Hallowed Knight: Plague Garden also gives readers a chance to catch up with Lord-Relictor Ramus and the Hallowed Knights of the Bull-Hearts warrior chamber, whose unfortunate experiences in the Realm of Death can be found in The Realmgate Wars: Mortarch of Night

Hallowed Knights: Plague Garden will be available from Black Library in hardback and as an ebook in June. I’ll write a bit more about what you can expect from it closer to the release date.
