    1. Finally I think Nathan Long "gets" the series at last. That or he's written enough for me to get used to his style. Either way, it was a tough transition from William King's original writing. The first couple by Long just didn't work for me for some reason. The characters weren't as enjoyable and the dialog seemed forced. And this was after I thoroughly enjoyed his "Black Hearts" series so I knew he could write (Please Mr. Long, don't forget about those guys I'd love another book in that run). M [...]

    2. Action Adventure Fantasy, 10/12 of the seriesJoin Gotrek on his fantastical aim of a heroic death with Felix's oath of chronicling Gotrek's death.Within this novel the pair fight hired guards, giant sharks, skaven, sorceresses, dark elves, dragons, and a demon. Thanquol the Gray Seer skaven and Maximilian Schreiber the wizard make a return to the series. Discussion/SpoilersHighlight of the novel was definitely when the greater Slaanesh demon foretells the circumstances regarding the doom of Gotr [...]

    3. Après deux lectures intense, je suis rendu à la dernière sortie à ce jour. Malheur à moi je savais qu'une suite était en marche donc notre slayer préféré ne verra pas la mort dans ce volume. Cependant, ce n'est pas grave, ce n'est mort qui nous intéresse mais bien la vie qu'il vit à chercher la mort ultime.Ce roman nous fait revoir d'autre anciens alliers, mais cette fois-ci, c'est un peu décevant car il ne sont pas beaucoup présent et le personnage de Max est vraiment trop différe [...]

    4. This time Gotrek and Felix find themselves facing off a horde of Dark Elves when they agree to go on a quest with Max, an Elven scholar and a Seer who has her eye fixed on Felix much to his and Max’s displeasure.As it seems to be the case with Long that is not at all how the story starts, in any case at the heart of the story is an ancient and very dangerous Elven weapon that must be either destroyed or put somewhere where it cannot be found (I won’t disclose what ends up happening). There i [...]

    5. This is truly a Gotrek and Felix novel - it's madcap, fierce and soaked in the blook of its enemies.Gotrek, after having taken quite a serious turn in my opinion since Nathan Long took on his character, is once again laughing maniacally and grinning in an unsettling manner in the face of danger. I love the scene where they are being attacked by sharks and Gotrek is roaring at them to come out of the water and face him, the cowards. The humour is definitely back in the series and the book is so m [...]

    6. A good addition to the Gotrek Series. No doubt about it. Nathan Long as a different way of writing G&F stories but they are great nevertheless. But unfortunally now he stopped writing and other books are being written that don't follow the straight line they were travelling so far.In this book we start right after last one (Manslayer) with Gotrek morose because he couldn't arrive at the last battle in the Storm of Chaos Invasion. After meeting with some old friends (Max) they search for some [...]

    7. I don't know what it is about Nathan Long and his Gotrek & Felix novels, but for some reason they often come across as a child playing dress-up rather than a fully fledged novel. In this tome we see Felix trying to help out his father in a bid to win his affection, but he quickly gets sidetracked when Max returns to their lives with a prophetess who has foreseen Gotrek's doom far away. There's also (as you might guess) an elf involved. We get everything from sea dragons to an almost sex scen [...]

    8. Gotrek is a slayer dwarf, one who has committed a sin so great the only atonement is seeking out an death in battle worthy of an epic. Felix is a poet and swordsman who is wanted by the Empire for his participation in the window tax riots. Gotrek saved Felix's life from being trampled by the Empire's troops. While hiding in a tavern, very inebriated Felix swears an oath to follow the slayer dwarf and write the epic of his death. In this series of books the duo fight; chaos worshipers, goblin wol [...]

    9. Okayis bookis book, this book, this book. The middle part of this book made me squeamish (darn druchii jails.) but all in all, this was a good novel and I enjoyed it. So basicallyis book was about a dwarf named Gotrek and his human friend, Felix Jaeger, going to find a Harp that's with the dark elves, thanks to that stupid rat person that I can't name right now, and along with Max and Claudia, a seeress, they did get the Harpbut at the end it was destroyed, along with Gotrek (whom I hope is stil [...]

    10. It seems that I never get accustomed to the new author. Serial seems to be wrong now. Aside from the point that there is no humor serial seems to be not fitting Warhammer universe anymore. From the one side it has the all universe trademarks like moment of killing, grim and dark environment but from the other side it looks too normal and regular without crazy truly epic moments. Well, now you have boring talks about meaning of life and value of normal things heroes are lacking like family, warm [...]

    11. This was fun. Its always fun to return to Gotrek and Felix and watch them "Conan" their way around the world. The come to town, they find the evil, they kick its ass. And occasionally while they are finding some evil or another, some other evil comes and finds them at the same time. And you know what, they get beat up some and then they still manage to kick evil's ass. What can I say, I'm a man of simple pleasure. But seriously, if you want some action packed simple fantasy adventure you can't g [...]

    12. Edit. I have now read all Gotrek & Felix books. Here is my order of preference:Rank Book # Writer1 Skavenslayer 2 William King2 Daemonslayer 3 William King3 Shamanslayer 11 Nathan Long4 Manslayer 9 Nathan Long5 Beastslayer 5 William King5 Elfslayer 10 Nathan Long7 Orcslayer 8 Nathan Long8 Slayer 14 David Guymer9 Kinslayer 13 David Guymer10 Zombieslayer 12 Nathan Long11 Giantslayer 7 William King12 Dragonslayer 4 William King13 Vampireslayer 6 William King14 Trollslayer 1 William King

    13. I am a huge fan of the Troll Slayer series, and Nathan Long has done an excellent job carrying the torch after William King ended his run. The adventures of Gotrek & Felix continue to be exciting, action-packed romps through the rich, dark, gothic Warhammer Fantasy setting by Games Workshop.I am not as big a fan of Dark Elves and Naggaroth as I am of the other races and regions of the Old World, as they add a bit more "high tier magic" in what I love as a "low tier magic" sort of setting.

    14. Fairly good novel with above par endingGood to see a return for Max in this novel, this novel starts quite slowly but builds into a good ending, Nathan Long seems to be a much more consistent writer than William King but he needs to read the first 3 books and to try to get too their level if he is to own this series truly, a good outing but better is needed long-term

    15. If there were half stars to give, I'd give 3,5 stars for the tenth novel of "Gotrek & Felix". More pace and more structure than the one before. Still a huge fight at the end - as usual - but cut into several "battles" and thus far better to read. Again some annoying mistakes in grammar, spelling and vocabulary.

    16. SO i read this one and there's a word to describe it, INTENSE. It has a lot of action and tension, but what i really liked is that it doesn't get bored. Also, I give it only four stars because at some point, the enemies that seem to be impossible to beat without magic, are killed unsatisfactorily easy: man i feel bad for that akward thing that happened to felix in the ship

    17. Perfectly workmanlike dark fantasy hack-and-slash. A couple of really nice moments, like the handling of the dwarf slaves. And finally at least of mention of what will finally bring the unstoppable Gotrek down. It's odd to have a main character actively trying to get killed; it's odder to be cheering him on. But it works well enough that I keep reading them.

    18. Second book I read by Nathan Long, this tale is much more the flavor of old school Gotrek and Felix. Wicked elves fantastical magic, a floating city this story has made me decide to look up the rest of Nathan's books when money comes my way. Look this book up people! Now dark fantasy fans!

    19. I really enjoyed this book. It is the first book I have read that is set in the Warhammer world and, because of this book, I will continue to read books set there. The world is vast, there are many races, magics, creatures, and some technology.

    20. Wasn't the best read in the series and i didn't much care for the ending. It has a lot of excitement in it and some interesting plot points. I'd only recommend reading it if you've read all the ones that came before it.

    21. I enjoyed it, though the second half was a touch too much like Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

    22. Done. Good little read but Long spent too much time in the Black Ark and the descriptions have to be much, much more detailed.

    23. Felix and Gotrek against the dark elves? Sounds good? And it is. The duo knows not impossible saves the wold from the dark evil again and it's highlz entertaining.

    24. Probably one of the best books in the Gotrek and Felix series, and with a raft of returning characters as well. Nathan Long continues to capture what Bill King started.
