Cover description

Across the realms, the Fyreslayer lodges are stirring. Born to fight and imbued with the strength of their god Grimnir, these duardin defend their magmaholds against Chaos incursions with fierce determination – but as lightning crashes across the sky and a new epoch dawns, they must march out to rekindle long-forgotten ties of kinship. Heeding ancient prophecy, four lodges start on a path that will bring them great glory, or lead to their complete annihilation.

  • The Keys to Ruin and Shattered Crucible by David Annandale
  • Four Thousand Days by David Guymer

The Keys to Ruin by David Annandale

The future looks bleak for the Fyreslayers of the Drunbhor lodge. Their magmahold – Sibilatus, the howling mountain, which has stood for centuries in the face of all foes – has fallen. Daemons of the god of change swarm across their ancestral lands. The only hope lies in an ancient prophecy that says that the Drunbhor will one day return to their original home and reunite with their brothers and sisters there in the battle against Chaos. And so the Drunbhor march, but many enemies block their path…

The Shattered Crucible by David Annandale

In the heart of the Realm of Fire, the Fyreslayers of the Krelstrag lodge make their home. Amidst a great lake of lava in a tear in the landscape they believe was made in their warrior-god Grimnir's final battle, they go about their business. But dire portents, and visions of destruction, force them into action, and they undertake a long journey to make good on a half-forgotten oath. But when a horde of monstrous daemons bars their path, will they find salvation – or devastation?

Four Thousand Days by David Guymer

When Dunnegar of the Angfyrd Fyreslayers undergoes the dangerous Trial of Wrath, none expect him to survive intact – but he does, and becomes the lodge's first Grimwrath Berzerker in a generation. But that is just the beginning of his true trials… The lodge marches to war, a journey of four thousand days to reclaim the lands of their ancestors from the forces of Chaos. And the journey will be filled with danger that will test Dunnegar and his fellow duardin to their limits – and beyond.

The Volturung Road by Guy Haley

For a century, the Fyreslayers of Ulgaen-ar lodge have been under siege, the servants of the missing Chaos God Slaanesh keeping them penned in their ancestral home with constant vicious assaults. But when a prophecy comes to pass and the hold falls, the survivors find themselves homeless and in the unfamiliar Realm of Aqshy. Seeking sanctuary with their erstwhile cousins, they walk the Volturung Road – but danger awaits them at every turn.
