Sir Rupert Triumff. Adventurer. Fighter. Drinker.
Pratchett goes swashbuckling in the hotly anticipated original fiction debut of the multi-million selling Warhammer star.
Triumff is a ribald historical fantasy set in a warped clockwork-powered version of our present day … a new Elizabethan age, not of Elizabeth II but in the style of the original Virgin Queen. Throughout its rollicking pages, Sir Rupert Triumff drinks, dines and duels his way into a new Brass Age of Exploration and Adventure.

"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
"Endlessly inventive, joyously irreverent, drenched with adrenalin and wicked humour, Dan Abnett's Triumff is a brilliant occult-comedy-historical-adventure that's true to the best traditions of the genres it so eagerly devours."
- Mike Carey
“He makes war so real that you want to duck.”
“Abnett truly is the master of future war.”
“Dan has imbued the art of waging war… with a vivid and brutal energy, infusing the action with a palpable sense of tension”
- My Favourite Books, reviewing Titanicus
“a highly cinematic read, in which Abnett delivers a convincing, intricately constructed future, filled with interesting characters, and the promise of much more to come. “
- SF Site, reviewing Ravenor
“Dan Abnett does not disappoint with his story telling skills. Not only does he write some believable characters, but he can get a battle pictured in your mind with astonishing ease.”
- Walker of Worlds, reviewing Titanicus
