Overview

Re-release of the classic high elf adventure to coincide with the long-awaited release of it's sequel

The high elves have long been the protectors of the Warhammer World, and their homeland of Ulthuan is known for the powerful magic that surrounds it. At the heart of Ulthuan lies a magical vortex, and the mages who created it remain trapped in a space out of time, endlessly working the spell that keeps the world from becoming a seething Realm of Chaos.

When Ulthuan comes under attack from the forces of Chaos and dark elves led by the Witch King and the hag sorceress, Morathi, the high elves must hold firm or face disastrous consequences.

In Defenders of Ulthuan Graham McNeill tells the epic tale of the struggle between good and evil.

The Defenders of Ulthian is a great read! I admit what attracted me to this book was the beautiful cover art, but the story itself did not disappoint either. This is my first Warhammer World novel, but I¿m always up for a good Dark Elf vs. High Elf brawl. However, I found these Elves to be a little one dimensional and cliché, especially the Dark Elves which felt more like teaming muddled Orcs, rather than the tidy cunning and stealthy assassins. The High Elves themselves were also a bit fluffy and pretentious. The true characterization and core plot comes with Caelis and his story as we follow him trying to regain his lost memories after awaking on a beach with no knowledge of who he is or his past. It becomes apparent to the High Elves that he has vital information that must be unlocked and becomes thus the key to everything. ¿or so they think! Some great plot twists here, a little romance and brotherly betrayal keep you reading till the end. The novel does skip around between several different characters point of view/places but I though it flowed well and the story telling had lots of detail to paint a picture of a truly magical realm. One of McNeill¿s strong points is the epic battles he is able to write that make you truly feel you are a part of the action. Overall this is a fun read and I am looking forward to reading the next book.
