WARRIOR. BETRAYER. MONSTER. Even among the treacherous dark elves, Malus Darkblade stands out as a study in utter ruthlessness. When he steals a map that leads to a secret power hidden deep within the Chaos Wastes, Malus collects his cut-throat warriors and sets off to seek his fortune. Their journey takes them into the madness of Chaos and horrors that cause even a dark elf to quake in fear. Mike Lee has worked together with the Black Library's bestselling author and Darkblade creator Dan Abnett to pen the first in a series of all-conquering novels that take the savage world of Warhammer to a spectacular new level.
Dan Abnett has over fifteen published novels set in the Warhammer worlds to his name, including the massively-popular Gaunt's Ghosts series, Eisenhorn and Ravenor. He has also been busy in the comics world, working on such well-known properties as Superman, Batman and the X-Men. Mike Lee is the principal creator and developer for White Wolf Game Studios. Over the last six years he has contributed to almost two dozen role-playing games and supplements, including the award-winning Vampire: The Masquerade. His short stories have appeared in the anthologies Dark Tryants; Inherit the Earth and most recently Crimson Skies. An avid wargamer, history buff and devoted fan of two-fisted pulp adventure, Mike lives with his family in the United States.
