New omnibus edition of Mike Lee’s classic Warhammer fantasy trilogy The Rise of Nagash. In the fantasy world of Warhammer, magic suffuses the land to such an extent that even the dead can ‘live’ again, and whole empires of undead creatures hold sway in the dark places of the Old World.

The vampires in the forests, the ghouls in their tunnels, the tomb kings of the southern deserts – all can trace their dark lineage back to Nagash, the first necromancer and supreme lord of undeath.

For it was Nagash, two millennia before the time of Sigmar, who wrested the secrets of life and death from the dark elves, embarking upon a quest for immortality that would spark a war, destroy an empire and unleash a plague of undeath that would blight the Old World until the End Times and beyond.

Even gods start somewhere, and the God of Death is no different. Nagash bestrides the Mortal Realms like a colossus, but once he was a humble (well, okay, maybe not humble) priest king who changed the world forever by sheer will… Find out how in these three classic Warhammer novels.
