Last few outings for our heroes have been disappointing, this tale however is back to their gripping best. Another average book would have seen me give up however this thoroughly enjoyable saga has restored my faith. I can certainly recommend.

A return to the original Gortrek and Felix 29 May 2014
By Nathan Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After reading City of the Damned, I was expecting something similar; another cash-grab by Black Library while they churn out more Horus Heresy books.

I was pleasantly surprised that the author had appeared to have read (or understood) the relationship dynamics between Gotrek and Felix and how they are suppose to behave and react to situations. Gotrek is the arrogant, "racist" and alcoholic dwarf as he always was and Felix is the loyal and cautious but brave when it comes down to it.

The writing itself is very solid and easy to read and the story and plot are coherent.
Overall, it is quite a good and the closest I believe to the original books by William King.
A good read by an author is who growing into the characters and the series. 5 Aug. 2014
By Ashley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Overall this was a very fun read (which is what good pulp fiction should be).

Initially, however, I found the plot to be somewhat confusing. Where were they? Lustria? Never before seen Warhammer Africa? The references to the various cities were lost on me and I consider myself to be well read in the Warhammer fantasy universe. I did find out that Reynolds has written another book about the southlands but does one really need to read it in order to fully appreciate this book? Reynold's does make some great references to previous Gotrek and Felix adventures which makes for a nice change. This book takes place after Giant Slayer. Further, I liked the references to other Warhammer novels (e.g. the ship named Orfeo!) as well as other characters from the mythos. I know the Black Library burst away from the previously linear stories but it's nice to have some context, some frame of reference.

On the plus side, Reynold's creates some great characters and manages to bring life to the, er, undead! Antar is a great addition but really all the ancillary characters are good with the exception that it's hard to fully appreciate their motivations given that I struggled to tie the plot to known reference points (again, this goes back to the location and various cities and warring factions being previously unknown or barely referenced in previous Warhammer books). Who was the original big baddie? Nagash? Why are their vampires in the jungles? Why do they want to wipe out the undead?

Once you get past that though Reynold's proves that he really gets Gotrek and Felix/ Reynold's definitely captured the feel of the characters, particularly their oftentimes complex relationship. Gotrek care for Felix a great deal he just doesn't know how to show it in terms that humans can understand. That's really well played out here. All in all, this was a lot of fun and I hope Reynold's writes more G&F stories. Sadly though, from the previews of upcoming books, it appears that they may be bringing the series to an end. That would be a great shame.
A Return to Form! 16 Jan. 2015
By Jonathan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is quite simply one of the best Gotrek & Felix books that I've read (probably only beaten by Skavenslayer), it's practically a crime that Josh Reynolds is not righting ALL of the remaining Gotrek & Felix books. He really gets the essence of the characters, the humor, the repartee, the story, adventure, the fantastic supporting characters (both good & evil). Much like King did with Thanquol I found myself growing attached to Josh's villains and was sad when some of them ended up at the wrong end of Gotrek's axe or Felix's blade. Black Library is truly doing the characters a disservice by not having Josh right more of Gotrek & Felix.

I almost lost all hope for the series after reading the incredibly depressing and disappointing Kinslayer, which I don't think was a fault of that author but rather that the Black Library is trying to put a square peg in a round hole with Gotrek & Felix and the End Times story. That story is just plain depressing and that's not where Gotrek & Felix truly shines. I just hope that Josh continues to write more Gotrek & Felix and flesh out the years before they returned to The Empire. *cross fingers*

Better than the last few books. Has more of a sense of humor and a fast pace storyline.
Puts me in mind of William King at his best. 7 Aug. 2014
By Mr. J. W. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Josh Reynolds nailed it. Here's a writer that understands the sometimes complex dynamics of the relationship between the doom-seeking Gotrek and his long suffering companion Felix. What unfolds is a good old fashioned Gotrek and Felix adventure story, told with a sense of humour and full of interesting characters. It is a joy to read, Josh Reynolds has breathed new life into the franchise with a book that can stand alongside the best of the series so far. I cannot wait to see where he takes these heroes next.
