Publisher's Summary

A Gotrek novel

Gotrek Gurnisson, last survivor of the world-that-was, seeks the Undying King himself amidst the bleak underworlds of Shyish. Surrounded by the ghosts of the past, can Gotrek achieve his goal, or will his soul be forfeit?

Listen to it because:

It's Gotrek's first full-length novel in the Mortal Realms, and it pits him against all the horrors of the Realm of Death, as he seeks almighty Nagash!

The story:

In the bleak, haunted underworld of Shyish, a vengeful Slayer seeks the Lord of Undeath.

Gotrek Gurnisson returns, his oaths now ashes alongside the world-that-was, his fury undiminished. Branded with the Master Rune of Grimnir, the God that betrayed him, and joined by Maleneth Witchblade, a former Daughter of Khaine turned agent of the Order of Azyr, the hunt has taken them far and wide through the Realm of Death. Will Gotrek find a path to the Undying King or will the underworlds claim him as their own?

Definitely worth the listen.

While Brian Blessed IS Gotrek Gurnisson, Jonathan Keeble does an admirable job. The story got a bit confusing about 3/4ths through but, it alleviates said confusion by the end. Overall, A good listen and a good sequel to Realmslayer.

I miss Felix

gotrek is awesome. john keeble is fantastic for narration. but the age of Sigmar universe is so...meh. it feels like a rehash of old high fantasy tropes. and the new companion just isn't as interesting and as likeable or fun as Felix Jaeger. the magic is gone.

A Good Book but a bit of a letdown at the end

Over the story was a solid Gotrek adventure. The character is translated to the Mortal Realms well and his new cast of adventures buddies are interesting and multi-layered. But... SPOILERS AHEAD The ending was solid but the whole premise behind the book was Gotrek finding and killing Nagash. While I didn’t think this would happen, I was at least excited to see Gotrek exchange a few lines of dialogue with the big bad death god. To my dismay, Nagash doesn’t even show up in the book. He is talked about a lot, but when the book finally has a chance to bring him into the story at the conclusion, the plot turns around and heads the other way. Despite this, the book is still decent and a good read for any Gotrek fan.

Gotrek is back in glory

I was certainly hesitant about this story. The scale of the Mortal Realms and the lack of Felix seemed far too much. I am overjoyed to be proven wrong. Though i still miss Felix and hope to see him return someday, I've grown very attached to Gotrek's new companions. Speaking of, Gotrek is an excellent taste of the Old World in the Mortal Realms. The story told had excellent pacing and blended comedy, intrigue, and action brilliantly. I really cared about the supporting characters. I cannot wait to see where this adventure goes!

Different but still good

Really I'm just here for Gotrek but I miss the blessed Brian. The cast from Realmslayer made me excited. as much as I liked the performance the writing was a bit... lacking.

Now this is William King’s Gotrek!

If you have ever read an William King Gotrek and Felix, then you know what to expect. Great action as well as some emotional scenes, involving Felix.

Exceptional

I've read all titles in the 'Slayer' series to date, and this is absolutely a favourite of all that I have read. Darius Hinks does an excellent job of balancing the bombastic comedy and fatalistic melancholy for which Gotrek is known and loved. Hinks also flexes his ability to build a surreal fantasy world - the kingdom of Morbion and its denizens - whilst simultaneously keeping the magical setting grounded and tangible. Whilst Hinks' portrayal of Gotrek is arguably one of the best since the series began, he also does a brilliant job of exploring the character and motivations of Maleneth in a way that the audio dramas are not able to. Trachos - a Lord-Ordinator and a new character for this book - epitmoises the tragic heroism of the Stormcast Eternal. Other Black Library authors writing stories about the Age of Sigmar posterboys would do well to examine Hinks' Trachos as he is the single best portrayal of a Stormcast thus far. Jonathan Keeble is an excellent narrator and does a better Gotrek than Brian Blessed. There. I said it.

A thoroughly absorbing tale beautifully narrated. Exploring the realm of Death alongside Gotrek and his companions was a great pleasure.

Worst Slayer saga yet!

horrendous! terrible story compared to any of the slayer's story and the voice acting is terrible. He makes it sound like a nursery pantomime. Gotrek has been made to sound like an idiot and every time the 'actor' makes the female voices he sounds like a terrible amateur drag queen!

Okay. Not a Stand Alone Novel

This book took many restarts to figure out what was going on. I thought it was a stand alone book because the Audible catalog doesn't indicate that it's part of a series, but these are clearly established characters that the reader is already supposed to be familiar with. Without a proper introduction, Gotrek comes off as extremely one dimensional, and everyone is hard to relate to. Nevertheless, once I figured out what was going on, and did some googling to figure out who these people are, the story settled into an amusing ride. High quality literature this is not. It's just a passing amusement that will keep you entertained for a time, and then be forgotten after you read or listen to a few more books.

Well....I'm returning this one....Avoid it...

Narration 7/10 The narration is pretty solid but nothing really special. Gotrek's voice though sounds really off and annoying. The narrator is trying to give him a deep dwarf voice but he rather sounds like someone constipated having a hard time in the bathroom while speaking. Other that than I'd just its just ok. Story 3/10 I only got this because of the overwhelmingly positive reviews and my expectations were high, only to be crushed within the first hour of listening to this. I won't even mention the plot because I didn't even get why anything is happening, I could not focus on it and give a damn about what was going on at any given time, since it actually felt like just like a sum of events put together and some fights. What I mean is... It did not feel like a story with a proper plot. There is no character development, the characters are just there. The world building is nonexistent and the book takes some Warhammer lore for granted I guess. The protagonist is just boring with no personality, and what a 5 year old kid would consider cool. The rest of the characters are even more forgettable. All in all there is 0 depth to this. Overall I don't even know why I finished this, I guess because it was pretty short, or maybe I hoped it would get better, but after a point I just begged for it to be over with. I very rarely return a book, but I don't want this to be part of my library since it felt such a chore to finish. I can't comprehend how books like this get such high review scores ... Anyway, I can't recommend this to anyone, I don't know who could enjoy this, maybe it could appeal to teens I guess.
