Nathan Long is getting a little better writing for Gotrek. You can tell he likes writing better for Felix though. No worries because I like Felix too. =) This story is a good one filled with lots of battle and blood. A very worthy fantasy tale. =)
Richard Thomason
This is one of the best Gotrek and Felix novels for a number of reasons. Long's characterisation of the various groups within the book bring the varied sets of the Empire's inhabitants too life - any number of spin-off stories could be told of, for example the pistoleers in Bauholz, or the scouts accompanying the protagonists to the final encounter. The speech has an authenticity to it which goes beyond previous novels, although there are some more awkward parts with Felix's emotional attachment ...more
HOLY WOW. Such a great ending... such a great ride all the way through. I cried twice. You've got to read this series in order if you're going to pick it up, but it's totally worth the journey to get here (and it was always a good journey). Nathan Long does an amazing job writing a strong female character and reminds us why we still love Felix and Gotrek.
Always a guilty pleasure, with a few surprising twists this time around as well as old friends.
One of my favorite characters is back, but kind of sad too. :(
Gotrek is a slayer dwarf, one who has committed a sin so great the only atonement is seeking out an death in battle worthy of an epic. Felix is a poet and swordsman who is wanted by the Empire for his participation in the window tax riots. Gotrek saved Felix's life from being trampled by the Empire's troops. While hiding in a tavern, very inebriated Felix swears an oath to follow the slayer dwarf and write the epic of his death. In this series of books the duo fight; chaos worshipers, goblin wol ...more
Après mon brake de Warhammer et dans ma nouvelle gestation de digérer un livre de Steven Erikson, j'ai décider de continuer une série que je suis depuis plus de 10 ans. La série des Slayer de Warhammer, communément appeler Felix et Gotrek.

Jusqu'à maintenant, Nathan Long a toujours sur porter fièrement le flambeau de la série Slayer. Tous ses derniers livres ont été plus que satisfaisant et j'espérais beaucoup ne pas être déçu par la suite de Elf Slayer.

Encore une fois, la quest est corsé, pleine

Mr. Long definitely took a step back with this one.

After thoroughly enjoying Elfslayer, I was really looking forward to this release. The long awaited return of one of the better side characters was ruined with an unexplained case of senility and took total second fiddle to a new/old love interest for Felix. I got the sense that the author tried to build on Felix' inner self doubt (which has always been there from the original stories onset) however in my opinion, it turned Felix into a scared,
Not classic Gotrek and Felix, but back on par at least

Since Nathan Long has taken over from William King he hasn’t had any bad books, he hasn’t had any great one's either but they beat William King's last couple, he still hasn’t nearly hit the heights of the first trilogy though either, in this book the double act are fighting the beastmen of the drakwald and there is a couple of re-admissions of old characters as in the last book (I think this is generally a good thing), the enemy though they a

I am a huge fan of the Troll Slayer series, and Nathan Long has done an excellent job carrying the torch after William King ended his run. The adventures of Gotrek & Felix continue to be exciting, action-packed romps through the rich, dark, gothic Warhammer Fantasy setting by Games Workshop.

I really liked this adventure, as the brooding, seething presence of Chaos is one of the underlying themes of the setting. And beastmen are a race usually only used as creatures occassionally encountered
Adolfo Ito
it was actually good, but at the same time, the storyline was a little slow, and i hated the final. That is because the next book "zombieslayer" won't be traduced to spanish, so i'll have to read it in a long time
Jeremy Preacher
Dark, gloomy, gothic fantasy - predictable as hell, but competently-written and action-packed. I am a little afraid the series will never actually end, because I'm only in it for the ending at this point.
Some people compared this to David Gemmell's LEGEND. God, no. Not even close. Another case of Star Trek red shirts. I simply do not care about other people in these novels except Snorri and Kat.

Il cliffhanger finale è a dir poco stupendo! Avevo altri piani ma mi toccherà iniziare subito il prossimo volume della saga :)
As bloody as always, but this time with a scary ending.
Same recipe but leaves it on a cliffhanger.
