What the Critics Say

"Triumff is a witch’s brew of alternate history, hocus pocus, cracking action and cheesy gags. Reads like Blackadder crossed with Neal Stephenson. It’s a Kind of Magick – don't miss it.” (Stephen Baxter, esq.)
“Endlessly inventive, joyously irreverent, drenched with adrenaline and wicked humour, Dan Abnett’s Triumff: Her Majesty’s Hero is a brilliant occult-comedy-historical-adventure that’s true to the best traditions of the genres it so eagerly devours.” (Mike Carey, esq.)

A workman like performance with a funny story unde

The reader is more professional than inspiring but he gets the job done without getting in the way of the story. He does well with the pace of his reading and has enough voices to go around although if you have listened to other books read by him you will notice the same voices come round again. It lead to some funny moments where I thought what is the DG from Len Deightons Berlin game doing in a funny fantasy book about an alternative Elizabethan London.

The story itself is fun, I laughed a lot especially in the first quarter of the book. The author draws on a lot of the same lines as Terry Prattchet. If you’ve just come off a Disc World binge and need something to help the come down I would recommend this. Although it does stand up as a its own thing.

truth be told I struggled at the start. some of the wording was difficult to understand. However perseverance won the day and I have actually listened to it multiple times. the narrator is simply fantastic and the story amazing. It presents an alternative magic fueled England with wit action and a gripping story
