Summary

A Gotrek Gurnisson novel.

When Felix Jaeger, a student, poet and minor political agitator, swears a drunken oath to a half-mad dwarf, it changes his life. Adventure awaits, as Felix records the mighty deeds of Gotrek Gurnisson, Trollslayer.

Listen to It Because: This collection of stories is where the saga of Gotrek began. Mutants in the forest, goblins in the mountains, a troll beneath the world - from these small beginnings came the greatest partnership in the Old World and a hero who has crossed realities and become a legend.

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....

After fleeing the authorities in the Imperial city of Altdorf, Felix Jaeger swears a drunken oath to dour dwarf Gotrek Gurnisson to record his death saga. In the cold light of day, Felix's worst fears are confirmed as he learns that Gotrek is a Trollslayer - a dwarf doomed to seek out a heroic death in battle to atone for an unknown personal disgrace. Their travels throw them into a string of extraordinary adventures as Felix tries to survive his companion's destiny.

Written by William King. Narrated by Jonathan Keeble.

well read, a classic

If you're unfamiliar with the size of a ham please visit a butcher prior to getting into this series. You'll get more from the hand metaphors.

Fantastic

The narrator does an amazing job, couldn't ask for a better one. Each chapter is its own story, some longer than others. The stories are fun, epic and often horrifying!

Brilliant!

I am a 40k listener mostly, and had no real expectations of the fantasy lore.

But oh so wrong I was, this is just as exciting as starting out on the first books of the horus heresy!

Very much recommend this book!

Deep dive into the legend of Gotrek & Felix

I had never been one for Warhammer Fantasy before but after listening to this and Drachenfels, I can safely say that it's definetly got me hooked to listen to more tales in the Old World. The short story style of the chapters in this book coupled with the interaction between the various characters (including the main heroes themselves) and Jonathan Keeble's amazing reading were all the necessary ingredients for me to enjoy this book. Felix Jaeger's trip from reluctant witness to Gotrek's desperate doom quest to becoming an unsung hero in his own right is an exciting journey full of twists and turns that would appeal to anyone seeking adventurous tales set in the Old World of Warhammer.
