Warrior Priest (winner of the 2011 David Gemmell Morningstar Award)


‘It’s beautifully written… Harsh, dark and with combat moments almost Gemmellesque, it’s a tale that will fulfil many a reader’s demands.’

– Falcata Times


‘Delivers on all fronts in a manner that’s nothing short of superb. If Jakob Wolff is called upon to defend the Empire in future books then I’ll be picking them up. Nine and a quarter out of ten.’

– Graeme’s Fantasy Book Review


‘He expertly handles both battles and intimate encounters, while creating well-rounded, full bodied characters… Warrior Priest is a worthy entry in the Empire Army series; an outstanding first outing from Darius Hinks.’

– Red Book Review


‘Another amazingly well-written instalment in the Warhammer Heroes Series.’

– The Founding Fields


‘Great prose and solid bloody combat alongside dialogue that will enrapture the reader as well as ensnare them into Darius’ own web.’

– Falcata Times





‘He brings to life the chaotic, dreamy debauchery of the life of a Chaos Champion – perversions and pleasures walk hand in hand in Sigvald’s world.’

– Floor to Ceiling Books


‘If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to be Sigvald, this is the book for you.’

– Bell of Lost Souls


‘Sigvald is a brilliantly fast-paced, twisted tale of debauchery and vanity, from an author who has an engaging and addictive style.’

– Civilian Reader


‘There is intrigue and counter intrigue on almost every other page and Hinks had me hooked by it all.’

– Graeme’s Fantasy Book Review



Orion: The Vaults of Winter



‘An epic tale of curses, daemons, magic and a realm that is the inverse of every fairytale ever told. A promising start to a new series.’

– The Founding Fields


‘Mythic fiction as it should be, a high-magic, high adventure, with flawed, believable characters, a good story line and a decent, fast pace.’

– The British Fantasy Society


‘If you go down to the woods today, you’d  better go in plate armour and with your army at your back as the Asrai aren’t to be messed with. Read Orion: The Vaults of Winter if you don’t believe me. Go on, I dare you!’

– Fifty Shades of Geek
