Sir Rupert Triumff: adventurer; fighter; drinker; savior?

It is the year 2010. Her Divine Majesty, Queen Elizabeth XXX, sits upon the throne. Great Britain’s vast empire is run by alchemy and superstition. Now Sir Rupert Triumff, dashing swordsman, has uncovered a vile plot to dethrone her glorious majesty. For the honor of the nation: to arms!

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 Dan Abnett, it has all the swashbuckling action of his most popular writing, but also a wild sense of humor.

    " c2009: FWFTB: alchemy, superstition, nation, Empire, swordsman. I think that this book was just too clever for me. There are some wonderful zingers but I got the feeling that the book was written just for this very purpose rather than an actual plot. I put the book down and never really managed to summon up the interest to pick it up where I left off. One of the few times that Angry Robot have let me down. Sadly, unable to recommend. "No one actively disliked him, but he'd have had trouble forming a cricket side if he only called on his friends." "

    " I've been trying to force myself to finish this book for awhile now. Maybe someday I'll manage, but as it is, it sucks. None of the characters are fleshed out. The humour is puerile (and while I will admit, this does sort of fit Elizabethian times, I don't get why time has stood still since that time period because just replacing tech with magic wouldn't cause fashion and culture to stay stagnant). And I'm rather surprised that anyone without a good knowledge of Elizabethian era vocabulary can follow it. This, in fact, was the thing that bothered me the most in that somehow, vocabulary and language haven't changed in over 400 years. It's impossible to suspend disbelief and that coupled with the unlikeable characters and so far non existent plot makes it damn hard for me to want to keep reading. "

    " During the Renaissance Leonardo discovered how to use magic for practical things and thus science never happened in Europe and in the 21th century a British-Spanish commonwealth lives in a sort of eternal Elizabethan age ruled by one Elizabeth after another. That is Dan Abnett's premise in the romp called Triumff, Her Majesty's Hero. It's swash buckling, rip roaring action as full of outrageous puns as any Shakespeare comedy. Sir Rupert Triumff, a discoverer, swordsman and rascal in the image of Drake, rides and rather fumbles his way to the rescue as dark forces plot to overthrow Glorianna, Elizabeth XXX. The sword fights are as spectacular as anything you would look for in a Pirate movie with Johnny Depp and often enough much funnier. 21st Century Elizabethan London, stinks as much as it did in the fifteen hundreds and there is the stink of wild magic overlaying it. Intelligent fun as well as page turning suspense. Can't wait to see what Triumff's next adventure is going to be. "
