Rulers of the Dead

The forces of Death serve one master alone, Nagash, the Great Necromancer. Openly opposed to the warriors of Sigmar since the devastating Necroquake unleashed untamed magic throughout the realms. Yet, even united under Nagash, endless scheming remains among the Lords of Death. None embody this more than Nagash’s Mortarch of Blood, Neferata, Queen of the Vampires.

The forces of Death serve one master alone, Nagash, the Great Necromancer. Openly opposed to the warriors of Sigmar since the devastating Necroquake unleashed untamed magic throughout the realms, Nagash’s most powerful servants command legions of undead soldiers that can erode civilisations through centuries of war, turning the deceased against their descendants. Yet, even united under Nagash, endless scheming remains among the Lords of Death. None embody this more than Nagash’s Mortarch of Blood, Neferata, Queen of the Vampires.

The Realm of Death is an inhospitable place, but even here humanity ekes out an existence. Many turn to Nagash to survive, but in the Undying King, convinced he’s abandoned them, Tamra, ruler of the Rictus clans and her tribe fight a desperate battle for survival against the relentless minions of the Plague God.

In the shadows of Nuhlamia, through guile and terror, Neferata rules absolutely. However, faced with a betrayal that spans generations of the Mortal Realms, Neferata is determined to emerge triumphant using any means at her disposal.

This omnibus contains two novels: Nagash: The Undying King and Neferata: Mortarch of Blood.
