Luthor HussPt servants of ChaosWitch hunter Lukas Eichmann investigates a series of bizarre murders which ultimately lead him into the haunted depths of the Empire at the head of an army of fanatical warriors In the Drakwald forest Luthor Huss warrior priest of Sigmar battles t Original Post the latest entry to the Warhammer Heroes series I was uite thrilled to read about the Hammer of Sigmar as name giving character Luthor Huss is called by some Even so because the novel's author is no other than Chris Wraight whose Swords of the Emperor duology in the same series has already blown me away Wraight managed to not only make the Empire appeal to me but also present a genuinely interesting and extensive plot that was not yet covered by existent background material which made it all the exciting to readWith my earlier excitement in mind I went ahead to read Luthor Huss Can the prophet of Sigmar himself follow the footsteps of Ludwig Schwarzhelm and Kurt Helborg and provide another solid satisfying tale set in the Warhammer world?The StoryWitch hunter Lukas Eichmann investigates a series of bizarre murders which ultimately lead him into the haunted depths of the Empire at the head of an army of fanatical warriors In the Drakwald Forest Luthor Huss warrior priest of Sigmar battles to free the denizens of the forest from a plague of the walking dead As their fates entwine the two warriors confront a threat that will decide their future while Huss must face a secret from his past if he is to survive and embrace his destiny as the Hammer of SigmarGeneral InformationAlthough it should be clear by now Luthor Huss is a Warhammer novel It is a story about Faith Indeed Faith is the leading theme throughout the whole novel and despite not knowing much about Warhammer if there's a tiny bit of interest in how people deal with their trust in higher beings this story might really appeal to youSet in the Empire the biggest human civilization in the Warhammer Fantasy world you get all the usual medieval themes though less of the noble side of it than in The Red Duke but of a poor miserable hopeless point of view The story is dirty bloody and full of worship If you can't cope with religious themes in fiction or reading about a good share of gore you might reconsider picking it upBut if you love dark fantasy the way I do you'll love this book and its deeper themes ‘We will show them the path of valour We will expose the lie that there is no answer to the prayers of the faithful and demonstrate with our body mind and soul that there is but one liege lord for mankind one master of our destiny and one hope for the redemption of us all and that is the Lord Sigmar Heldenhammer the Blessed the Mighty the Undefeated’ — Luthor Huss Chapter 10Structure PlotAs all Warhammer Heroes novels do for the most part this book focuses on Luthor Huss Warrior Priest of Sigmar who founded the Empire thousands of years in the past and is venerated as a God by the people of the Empire Luthor Huss having been self exiled from the churches of the Empire's capital disgusted by the political schemes of his peers is a wandering priest smiting the enemies of man wherever he encounters them Wielding his mighty warhammer with skill precision and burning faith Huss himself is inspiring the people around him to greater deeds in Sigmar's nameThe book mainly follows two storylines or better two characters and their workings towards a goal they can only reach together Only in the last uarter do witch hunter Lukas Eichmann and Luthor Huss meet up until then they both follow the same taint on their own uncovering a complex tale of heresy to the reader While Eichmann tries to get to the core of the cults he has recently uncovered and follows the trail into the Drakwald which lies at the heart of the Empire and is home to the vile beastmen Huss fights to protect the villages at the border of the forest or at least cleanse whatever taint remains Following Luthor is a peasant girl rescued from the ruins of a village ravaged by the undead as well as a mad peasant who lost his mind over the horrors he has witnessed and recovers his hope throughout the book Both play a vital role in the story and also to Huss they are important dealing as strong devices for plot and character development Little do these characters know about the evil they would eventually reveal The core of the heresy lies in the middle of the Drakwald and to face it Huss will have to face his past firstThroughout the story the reader encounters Huss's memories which reveal his path from beginning his life as a priest as an apprentice of his old master and end with his leave from the temple he called home after uncovering that even the servants of Sigmar are not infallible Indeed while not as clearly structured as the flashbacks in The Red Duke these glimpses at the youth of Huss are a strong aspect of the book and show us the origins of the prophet of Sigmar innocent pious strong in body and mind and also tell us about his inner thoughts on the world he would swear to protect The otherwise silent and distanced hero thus grants the reader a in depth look into his character psyche and faithThere's not a single doubt that Luthor Huss tells a story about faith first and foremost however Faith is a strong thing indeed and Chris Wraight expertly shows just how it affects people both positively and negatively how it inspires them to unknown heights and how losing one's faith may crush his very existence It is a story about people dealing with faith in their own ways; from witch hunters pursuing those who turned from Sigmar the priests preaching His word the people clinging to their miserable lives looking to the Gods to lend them guidance or even the zealots who have nothing left nothing to lose and pledge their bodies and souls to their LordWraight shows us the matter of faith from a lot of different yet intertwined angles crafting a coherent tale that is both tragic and inspiring proving the very point why faith is a very important thing in the Warhammer multiverse and should never be neglected They're just as important to Warhammer as sword and magic are or the heroes wielding themFinal Words VerdictI genuinely enjoyed Luthor Huss from the first to the last page I didn't find any chapter that unnecessarily dragged on or didn't get to the point In fact it drew me in so easily I felt bad whenever I couldn't keep my eyes open any or had other things to do than read I almost read it while cooking easter lunch Especially the religious aspects the book touches are impressively well written and mind provoking How is man supposed to deal with despair the loss of hope and faith? What makes them believe? What brings them to embrace damnation?Much like The Red Duke Luthor Huss provides the reader with plenty of material to study the great character we've known for many editions of the tabletop game In fact Luthor Huss is once again featured in the 8th edition armybook of the Empire in Warhammer Fantasy but did not get a new model yet? His background section in the armybook also does not match up completely with the novel but if you ask me I'd take his final test before becoming a full fledged priest in the novel much superior than the version of the armybook Rest assured these minor inaccuracies are neglectable and I'd rather think that they're due to deadlines rather than oversight I'd also like to point out that this novel is set before the Storm of Chaos and the coming of Archaon the Everchosen of Chaos Undivided There are some clever hints and references especially at the end of the book that make me hope for a successor novel as Huss has yet a vital part to playChris Wraight once again earned my deepest respect with this recent contribution to the Warhammer Fantasy world It lived up to my expectations and even better it exceeded them For the first hundred or so pages I really did not know where the story would lead to as it gradually built up the setting and cast but at no point was I lost or lacked the excitement to go on readingWhile the stage is rather the Drakwald rather than the cities of the Empire I thought Wraight really pulled it off to make the old forest appear just as dangerous and deadly as it is supposed to beastmen or not The way the men dealt with the fear of being close to the treelines or even venture into it was both realistic and unnerving even so than the living dead attacking the human settlementsThis sets the story into contrast to the Swords of the Emperor duology as they played mostly in open field or cities showing the human civilized side of the Empire instead of the animalistic and frightening aspects normal folk has to deal with apart from the big cities and the protection of armies However it appears that Chris can do both justice and this makes him the ideal candidate to write about the Empire of ManDear Black Library if you want to do the Empire justice please invite Chris Wraight to write books about itIf his name is on the cover I'll buy it not because of blind fanboyism although it might have a minor role in it but because his stories feel alive right and to the point He clearly knows what he is doing and it shows I clearly recommend picking up Luthor Huss especially if you are tempted to pick up the Empire's 8th edition armybookAs if Sword Guardian wasn't enough already to get me reading the Sigmar trilogy the next thing I started after finishing Luthor Huss was Heldenhammer I'm uite curious if Sigmar will be worth the Empire's faith Looks good so far
