If you've read the previous two Thanquol and Boneripper books, or if you've read any of the Gotrek and Felix series, then you know what you're getting with this book, which just happens to be pure Warhammer-skaven-y awesomeness.

I love rats, ergo I love skaven, ergo I love Thanquol. He's just so... Thanquol. His casual violence to his underlings, his insane machinations, he's just adorable! What sums him up for me is the scene where he orders his subordinates to "Stop dying!"

And 'Thanquol's Doom' is doubly awesome because it features my second favourite Warhammer race - the dwarves. I like the clash between the dwarves care for one another and the esteem in which they hold tradition, and the skaven self-centredness and scramble to take control by whatever means necessary.

An awesome character in this I would have liked to have seen more of was a skaven called Nikkrit, who was Thanquol's standard bearer for a while. He was great comic-relief.
