Summary

A Gotrek novel

When the Bad Moon rises, Gotrek Gurnisson descends into the heart of Skragrott, the Loonking's twisted, fungal empire in pursuit of vengeance.

Listen to it because:

The Slayer hunts the most ancient enemies of his people in the heart of their domain. It may not be the world he was born in, and they may go by the name grots now, but no self-respecting dwarf is ever going to turn down the chance to kill hordes of goblins....

The story:

Hell-bent on ridding himself of the Fyreslayer rune buried in his chest, Gotrek Gurnisson, the greatest slayer to ever live, travels deep into the strange, alchemical realm of Chamon. Using their mysterious aether-science, the Kharadron overlords of Barak-Urbaz offer an end to Gotrek’s quest. But, as the Bad Moon rises and murderous Gloomspite Gitz threaten to destroy the sky-port, Gotrek pits himself against the most ancient enemy of his people - the greenskins. While his aelven travelling companion, Maleneth Witchblade, struggles to keep him alive, Gotrek throws himself headlong into a bloody battle for survival that will take him into the dank, fungal heart of Skragrott’s Asylum.

Written by Darius Hinks. Running time 9 hours 46 minutes. Narrated by Jonathan Keeble.

More Gotrek!!

The more stories about Gotrek the better 😁
This one also takes a look at the cultures of the Kharadron Overlords and the Gloomspite Gitz 👍

Worth a listen!

Loved the Gitz getting some more time in the loonlight! Felt a bit slow to get started but enjoyed the overall story progression.

A worthy addition to the Gotrek mythos

Gitslayer follows in the now-old tradition of Gotrek stories in being something of a filler novel. It is a story where Gotrek is pitted against a particular foe whose race is largely chosen from a list of races that haven't been the antagonistic focus of a previous book. Nothing happens in terms of a broader story, though there are hints of some greater arc being developed. But, as with previous Gotrek novels that follow this format the tale is still worth telling and reading.

A worthy addition to the slayer series.

I've been a fan of the Gotrek novels since first reading about him in a magazine in the 90's. Each book adding more to the character, his long history and the world around him. Gitslayer takes this a step further. Having found himself in the Mortal realms in the previous novel, this book has his searching for a true purpose, and murdering everything in his path as he does so. As such, I found it in keeping with the series as well as being able to move his story along in a satisfactory manner. Maleneth is not Felix, but she does manage to add something different that is enjoyable and refreshing. All in all it, I thoroughly enjoyable tale.

Hilarious, dark, and grotty!

Ever wondered what it's like to get into the head of a grot, stumpy, or humey?

This is a fungus fueled insight into the age of Sigmar universe, with the occasional tales from the crypt style side story. Soar above the clouds of a smog filled industrial revolution with Gotrek and Co, and wade your way through spore filled Asylum swamps where its dark, and dank, and sticky!

Jonathan Keeble's voice acting and narration is second to none! I loved this from start to finish.

Best frenemies forever!

Always a pleasure to enjoy the quips and derisive witty banter between Gotrek and Maleneth. This publication also explores an interesting tie between the two that neither wish to acknowledge and furiously deny.

Solid Gotrek novel with a great narrator

Gotrek books are solid formulaic fantasy , he smashed things , is grumpy , fights a troll and talks about honour and oaths. it's character driven heroic fantasy and Gitslayer achieves this. The Narrator brought the characters to life and energy to the battles , of which there are many. would recommend if you like Gotrek novels.

Gotrek is back! Again.

I love to hear Gotrek’s adventures. And this book is especially entertaining. The Grots are just as charismatic and fun as the slayer him self!

Enormously bad.

Gotten, one of the most awesome characters of all time, struggles to defeat frogs, waits, and to avoid being turned into a mushroom. Yes, the story is that bad.

another master piece

once again we see the literary talen of Darius Hinks and the great performance of Jonathan Keeble, as we dive deep into the world of one of my favorite AoS factions, the Caradron Overlords. the pacing is spot on and the emotional turns hint at something even greater to come as Gotrek meets these strange dwarves and their most peculiar enemy, gobbos with mushroom magic, to put it bluntly hehe

Another great adventure with Gotrek in the Mortal Realms

This is a great addition to Gotrek’s adventures. This audiobook is a must for fans of the slayer, Gloomspite Gits, and the Kharadron Overlords. Well performed and a good listen.

Fair warning, there is some body horror as characters are deformed or encased within giant mushrooms. It isn’t too graphic, but if you have a phobia of these things watch out.

Goterk finally finding a place in the Mortal realm

This is another excellent addition to Gotrek's search for "that" long awaited doom.

This novel is the fist real entry that places Gotrek comfortably in the Age of Sigmar. Realmslayer is excellent, but it is something else than a Gurnisson story. Ghoul-slayer was a boy of a mess and thus a bit of a miss. But this book 📚 wants me to continue our heroes' tale.
