For some reason, the writing doesn't seem to flow as well as William King or Nathan Long's novels and so I've not been as enthusiastic to turn the next page as I was with the '[insert name here]Slayer' novels.
Still, it's a new story for Gotrek and Felix but not sure that it's worth a read.
Just hope Nathan (or William) pick up the next book in the actual timeline stories for our 2 favourite heroes.
To all other potential readers, do not bother reading this book as it does not follow on from Zombie slayer, the plot is poor, the sub genres are weak, various characters storylines are left without ending. The main villain is very poorly described; I found it difficult to understand what the author was referring to when talking about the gorewolf.
Please don't waste your time with this book and for that matter please don't let Josh Reynolds near a Gotrek and Felix title again.
As an army of Slayers head out to fulfill an ancient prophecy, Gotrek and Felix are forced to remain at Slayer Keep. According to the aged priest, should Gurnisson march toward and meet the Chaos army in battle, he will find the death he seeks, but the world will die with him. This, of course, does not sit well with Gotrek.
** TWO STARS! I am a big fan of the Gotrek and Felix series. I look forward to each release, eager to read the next adventure. I have come to enjoy Gotrek's surliness, his jumping into the middle of any battle, and his scowls - to name only a few traits I adore. As for Felix, I am very familiar with his brave and skillful fighting. I now rely on seeing Felix by the Slayer's side no matter what comes. The human is a bad a...Well, he is deadly, especially with a sword. Occasionally the pair will have company in their travels. One such companion is Snorri Thungrimsson, a Slayer who is usually crazed and refers to himself in the Third Person. There is no one else quite like Snorri.
This story has all three of these characters that I enjoy so much; however, none of them are portrayed correctly. Gotrek is not as moody and he does not put away the ale like water. Felix spends most of his time in battle on his tail.Read more ›
Overall it was a good book,
The author understood the characters and how they would react to the circumstances that play out.
The only negative is that it is hard to judge in the timeline where this novel sits in the slayer series. But it was a good stand-alone novel
Nevertheless I have enjoyed the book but it wasn't the book I was looking for.
Think that the author should pick up on some of the chaos warriors and give them a novel as they are more interesting than the dwarf heroes.
