Ahriman: Sorcerer (Book Review)
There seems to be a running trend in Chaos novels these days. In several of their bigger successes of late, the objectives seem to be less focused upon a thrilling tightly written narrative than the ideas it can accomplish or explore as the story goes on. This can be seen as the case again for Ahriman: Sorcerer, as the overall arcing plot feels very much like the first book. It follows a very direct story, the threat and overall objective are obvious, and once you spell it out the main narrative is rather simple. The real meat instead stems from the political intrigue within a Chaos warband and the drama between such a diverse array of characters.
