This is a breath of fresh air in the adult sf/fantasy genre. It may lack finesse, but, crucially, it doesn't lack action and (dare I say it) combat! Gotrek and Felix are contrasting characters that seem to share a common destiny. The inevitable doom of Gotrek is as good a hook for reader attention as any I've seen in the fantasy genre...I struggled to put the book down, and by the time I got to Dragonslayer, I couldn't stop - read the whole thing in one sitting. No soft heroics and boring pages of mundane activity here, the heroes are hard bitten and uncompromising, going from battle to battle in the chaos infested Old World. I have no hesitation in recommending this series to anyone that has an interest in heroic fantasy without the pretentious rubbish and absence of action that mars so many novels these days. I've read the books over and over again - the content is right up there with Terry Brooks' excellent work. Buy and enjoy!
