Publisher's 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.

Brilliant! And the rest please :)

The books are amazing but to hear the first book Narrated by Jonathan Keeble was just as good!

Cannot wait to get the rest of the series if it’s released.

Classic Gotrek & Felix

William King wrote some fantastic fiction for the Black Library back in the day. The 'Slayer' series of novels are some of the most fun reads that the Black Library has ever published. Trollslayer is an absolute must for any Warhammer Fantasy fan.

This is true grim dark Warhammer Fantasy set in the Old World. This is real Warhammer; not the absolute garbage known as 'Age of Sigmar'.

need closure...

All n all it was great the only thing stopping me from giving 5 stars was the way almost every chapter was left open, to many times i was caught wondering how the chapter scene ended it would all build to a climax and then bam... next chapter, with no mention to how they delt with the climax of the previous... but apart from the constant theorizing what happened to who and why it was a great listen will definitely get another.

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.

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!!

Come for the dwarf, stay for the bloodletting...

An excellent selection of short stories with wonderful voice acting. This is my first warhammer fantasy story and it sets the world out very well.
