First things first.
This novella is labelled as "The Realmgate Wars Book 1" as is the Warstorm collection of Novella's, this however is in fact, the prologue for the entire Age of Sigmar range and thus the Realmgate Wars saga is mis-numbered as a result, the physical copy of this doesn't have a number on the spine, while Warstorm is numbered on the spine as Book 1.
Now, as for the Novella itself.
It's a decent read, the author does a competent job of keeping the story moving, though some of the dialogue comes across a tad stodgy (IMHO), but that's understandable as this is literally the 1st appearance of a number of characters who later become key figures in the 1st edition of the Age of Sigmar Tabletop Wargame by Games Workshop.
I'd recommend though getting the two omnibus's over the single titles though, as the ordering is sorted and you save a lot of money overall.

Age of Sigmar starts HERE!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 September 2020
A great introductionReviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 April 2017
Although it was a short one, this was a brilliant introduction to the great Realmgate Wars of the Age of Sigmar, showing the appearance of the Stormcast Eternals and their campaign to free the Realms. I hadn't read any of the Age of Sigmar material. I'm glad I did, and this has left me desperate to read MORE!!! The writing is as fabulous as I've come to expect from Chris Wraight, the characters as rounded as I expect. I certainly loved the internal conflict of Lord Andy's, and the hints of the Stormcasts' previous lives. Gimme more!!!!!!
Good readReviewed in the United Kingdom on 5 February 2017
I chose this rating as I'm not a massive follower of gamesworksshop, I do enjoy painting but never played and that was maybe why I struggles to follow the book in the beginning but as the book went on I got more and more into it, I will be reading the 2nd book
A fantastic first entry in the Age of SigmarReviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 June 2019
Myself and my girlfriend recently started collecting Age of Sigmar and we're surprised by the quality of the lore that accompanies the game. This first book made our games feel even more epic!
Good intro into the new world!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 7 December 2016
I love game workshop storys. So to get a free one is always good. The story is great way to get you into the Age Of Sigmar as does not give to much away and wanting you to know more.
