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.

Fantastic... Original awesome warhammer

These stories are just fantastic.

Lots of great battle action but the real strength are the characters and the great relationship between a dwarven warrior looking for the perfect death and the bard tasked by blood oath to tell the tale.

Undead warriors. Trolls. Orcs. Mutant cultists. What more do you want?

These stories are also 'grimdark' written over a decade before it was a thing. The best of that genre could learn a lot here.

Jonathan keeble does a great performance too. Similar to how I always had the characters in my head (which I must admit if a actor doesn't, admit often puts me off an audio book)

Hopefully audible will be adding the sequels as soon a possible!!

Amazing story and characters

I've wanted this series on audible since I first subbed. Amazing books that I really hope they continue to release. Jonathan Keeble is one of the best narrators in the business imo and I hope he continues to narrate Gotrek and Felix going forward.

Audiobookslayer

Was a happy making when I saw this audiobook, and am hoping they do the rest of the series, especially these "early" books as I feel they were the best, book 13 is where alittle rot set in for me. The narration is spot on by Jonathan Keeble. Fingers crossed they do the rest.

An amazing set of tales for any fan of Fantasy

the Gotrek and Felix books makes me miss the old days of Warhammer Fantasy and just makes me wish for more of these books to be released. Trollslayer was an enjoyable set of misadventures of the two misfit rogues that will please any fans of both Fantasy as a genre and lovers of Warhammer

Great series

I've read this series several times over the years. Great series with great characters. Johnathan Keeble brings this novel to life with his fantastic range of voices, he is hands down my favorite narrator.

OLD WORLD!

I've been playing warhammer for most of my life. I loved the Old world story, and the characters. I've used most of the models playing Old school Warhammer fantasy. Ever since they switched to AOS I've been disappointed, give me more Old world, more of the real Gotrek and Felix.
