Gotrek and Felix was an epic series full of adventure and excitement. William King did an absolutely wonderful job writing these and should have finished the series off. Nathan Long just doesn't seem to be on the same level, none the less it is a recommended read.

The third collection of adventures of the dwarf doom seeking slayer Gotrek and his human rememberer Felix. This collection is marked by the departure of William King, who has written all the previous novels, and comming of Nathan Long, the series new author. The first book of the series was slightly boring and slow paced, and Teclis to me seemed underwpowered. Despite this it was a quick read and provided some insight into Gotreks powerful axe. The next two novels by Nathan Long, were surprising...more

The third omnibus sees Nathan Long take over the writing of Gotrek and Felix from William King.

My first impression of Long was that he is a slightly darker writer than King. Gotrek's death oath seemed to be looked at from a thoughtful angle, really exploring what it means to him and in a wider context. The writing also felt more serious and gritty - injuries sustained in fights affected them more and on a couple of occassions Gotrek's injuries were bad enough to almost kill him. Overall, I enjoy...more

Wow! What a mixed bag and I'm not just talking about the stories themselves but within the stories there were some sections that seriously dragged and there were some sections that I swore the writers were channeling Gemmel. Tha action scenes are still not as fluid as Salvatore's (is anyone's) but they got better. As you read any story you always wonder about how ccan the writer sell the idea of a title character dying and I was actually on the edge of my seat for the last battle. I look forward...more

Although I am not a fan of William Kings writing, by the seventh G&F book I've grown used to it and started to enjoy the stories more.
Reading the eighth book (Nathan Longs first book) in the series was therefore a rude awakening, I really did not like it but as I read on it was evident that Nathan Long is a much better writer.

I gave Nathan Long a fair shot, and I just don't like his writing style. That being said the first book in this anthology by William King is still a ton of fun, but the last two are stilted at best.

Gotrek und Felix machen sich weiterhin wenig Freunde dafür umso mehr Feinde: http://www.weberseite.at/buecher/gotr...

I stopped after finishing Giantslayer. It was a very fun read. King knows how to capture the essence of Warhammer fantasy.

Nathan Long is the best Warhammer writer; glad he's taken over this series
