"Triumff: Her Majesty's Hero 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
"This is what it would look like if William Shakespeare and Rowan Atkinson got together to write a novel after a night on the town with Terry Pratchett... a delightful, often original and hugely entertaining read." - Unbound
"[The] action scenes are plentiful and genuinely exciting in a way that adds a new dimension." 4 Stars, Must Read Now! - SciFi Now Magazine
"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
"Triumff is a swashbuckling, madcap adventure that reads like a twisted 18th century adventure novel smashed together with something from a 40s pulp magazine... If you’re a Terry Pratchett fan, loved Good Omens, and typically enjoy your fantasy with a tongue quite firmly implanted in cheek then I think this novel might be worth a look." - King of the Nerds blog

Pratchett goes swashbuckling in the hotly anticipated original fiction debut of the multi-million selling Warhammer star.
Triumff: Her Majesty’s Hero 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.
The first original novel from multi-million selling tie-in king (and New York Times bestselling author) Dan Abnett, it has all the swashbuckling action of his most popular writing, but also a wild sense of humour – believe us, in all seriousness some of the diabolical gags he’s wrangling in this novel would kill a less experienced writer.
