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.

Great read. highly recommended

The stories were well told and highly entertaining. This book gives the reader some great insight into the Warhammer Old World delving deeply into the inner workings of the empire.

The characters Gotrek and Felix are well written and relatable providing a real sense of humanity present in both of them.

Definitely give this a go if youre interested in the Old World, or just a fan or fantasy in general.

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.
