Summary

A Gotrek & Felix novel

Between adventures and desperate for money, Gotrek and Felix work as sewerjacks in Nuln. Little do they know that villainous skaven lurk in the darkness, planning to tear down the mighty city....

Listen to it because

It's classic Gotrek and Felix which introduces a threat that will follow them throughout their heroic careers and even threaten Gotrek in his second life in the Mortal Realms: the sinister Grey Seer Thanquol.

The story 

Gotrek and Felix: unsung heroes of the Empire or nothing more than common thieves and murderers? The truth perhaps lies somewhere in between and depends entirely upon whom you ask. 

Seeking to undermine the very fabric of the Empire with their arcane warp-sorcery, the skaven, twisted Chaos rat-men are at large in the reeking sewers beneath the city. Led by Grey Seer Thanquol, the servants of the Horned Rat are determined to overthrow this bastion of humanity. Against such forces, what possible threat can just two hard-bitten adventurers pose?

Sad to finish it

Gotrek and Felix have always been my favourite series, and the release as audiobooks was welcome. My only criticism is that more haven't been released!

Great audio book, release the next one!

I love the warhammer fantasy world, I love this book and my boy Jonathan Keeble leaves it all in the studio when it comes to those skaven. More please!

More Gotrek & Felix on Audible please!!

Loved the skaven voice acting! Very Felix-centred novel but doesn't detract from the overall story. Can't wait for more novels on Audible!

This series of stories is one of my favourite books. I loved reading everyone and now it is even better with someone give such an excellent performance telling the story. This gives the characters new life.

Brilliant narration

Jonathan Keeble does this series proud. Felix and Gotrek are characterized perfectly and the supporting cast is just as good. I didn't have to imagine anything as it just made me feel as though I was watching a movie in my head. Can't wait for the rest of the series, please don't change the narrator!

Did you say Skaven?

I’ve been a fan of this duo ever since I first stepped into GW and purchased the models, after reading the novel and then returning to listen to this fanatic book made me fell apart of the story!

Excellently narrated and cannot recommend this enough!

Read the blood thing, Manling!

An amazing audio book that I didn't want to turn off. the voices, the attention to detail, the pacing. I am annoyed I started here in the middle of the series but I have already bought the other two.

By the 13 Clans!

By the 13!
Just as awesome as the Trollslayer story! Brilliant. Simply BRILLIANT! Skaven is one of the best races and plots in all of Warhammer Fantasy abd this just proves why. The fact that we get to follow the efforts of the core houses of the 13 is AMAZING! Maulder, Pestilence, Skryre and more,
it's wonderful!
The preformance is perfect for bringing life to the characters in their cowardly and treacherous nature.
The Slayer books are some of the VERY BEST Games Workshop has ever produced and this audioreading just proves it yet again. I've already started on Deamonslayer after finishing this one and it the perfectionjust continues. All of this makes me so happy! Awesome stuff!
I LOVE IT SO!
Thank you Audible, keep it up please! :D

Fantastic!

The Skaven make hilarious and fascinating characters. Besides the two heroes, you get the POV of various ratmen characters throughout and get to see their culture from the inside. These filthy, warp dust snorting, narcissistic, diseased ratties could easily rule the world if they could just stop stabbing each other in the back.

Audible: MORE GOTREK PLEASE!
Games Workshop: NEW THANQUOL NOVEL PLEASE!

Grim, satirical adventure

The right blend of comedy and dark action, heroism, and the burden of being truly noble in a corrupt world. Felix & Gotrek are heroes' heroes; imperfect people who do good things because they're the hard things to do.
And Thanquol is an all too excellent villain, doing everything in the most cunning and underhanded way. And being properly punished and rewarded for his untrustworthy genius.
Grim melodrama at its most Shakespearean.

Jonathan Keeble brings Gotrek and Felix to life!

I have loved both this book and Trollslayer. I anxiously await the next book and hope J. Keeble is available to read. His range of voices is expansive. His skaven are perfectly portrayed!
