Publisher's Summary

Gotrek and Felix Audiobook 4.

A journey back to civilisation is interrupted when Gotrek, Felix and their companions encounter a creature of myth – a legendary dragon! Caught between that flying rock and the hard place of an army of orcs, things look bleak....

Listen to it because

It's Gotrek and Felix vs a dragon, in one of the series most widely acclaimed entries. A dangerous race against time, multiple enemies and uneasy allies make this a true classic.

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.

Gotrek and Felix head back towards the Empire aboard the arcane dwarf airship Spirit of Grungni. Tired and wounded from their adventures in the Chaos Wastes, the intrepid duo look forward to seeing friendly lands once more. But darker forces are at work and when a violent storm blows them into the Worlds Edge Mountains they disturb a deadly creature of legend which guards a vast golden hoard. With an army of rampaging orcs behind and a wrathful dragon ahead, things look bleak for Gotrek and Felix!

whiplash

Decent series but this book is the weakest so far. The pov changes so much at times it leaves u whiplashed. At some points the pov changes every 2 sentences. The annoying bickering of Felix and his gf are very tedious. All in all a pretty lame entry.

Best audible series out there with the best narrator

There is no narrator better than Jonathan Keeble.

He makes the book feel alive, it’s like you are watching a show right there when he reads it. No voice better for Gortrek or Felix. I hope the whole series is made like this

Excellent

This series of books has been nothing short of excellence. The stories are memorable and the performance by the narrator is commendable.

A highly suggested listen and I have very high hopes that many more stories in the Gotrek and Felix saga will be available in the future.

Magnificent of Masters

It has been an absolute pleasure to listen to this serie. Jonathan Keeble does such a great job bringing these characters to life. Especially Thanquol and Lurk Snitch-tongue who has been my favorite two rats since 'Skavenslayer'.

I hope we continue to get the rest of the series 👏

awesome

I loved it, I own all the books in paper form and I will own the audio. The narrator is one of the best and makes the story more immersive. I hope beast slayer comes out soon.

Sadly, this story took the series from great back down to just good

Despite this books title and its description on Audible there is very little dragon and orc action. There is only one big fight with the dragon, the second fight with it is more of a slaughter than an actual fight. And there is only one big fight with the orcs that lasts all of about 10 minutes. The rest of the time you have to deal with listening to the skaven characters (which should have been killed off a couple of of books ago) and listening to Ulrika and Felix bitch, moan, and complain about their feelings towards one another. That, more than anything, pretty much ruined this book. It's basically a nine hour long high school love drama.

Thrilling story, amazing narration!

Jonathan Keeble brings further life to the already lively characters of Gotrek and Felix! Wonderful story, with so much adventure, heart, and amazing world building! So glad these books continue to be brought to Audible with the incredible narration from Jonathan Keeble!

Great story

The narrator was a blast, he did an amazing job conveying tone, intention, and character into every line, even when it was not dialog. The story itself was good but somehow felt short even though it wasn't.
My only complaint would be we didn't get to see the final fight from the dragon's perspective even though we had earlier in the story.

Another great Gotrek & Felix hit

Picking up right after the previous story, this novel ends up being something of a bridge between Daemonslayer and Beastslayer.

While not bad by any stretch, Dragonslayer certainly seems "lighter" than your typical G&T story, with lower stakes and a greater focus on character building and lore exposition than any particular challenge. Of course, there is the giant dragon that needs slaying - but compared to the looming threat of Chaos as established in Daemonslayer and which the audience is constantly reminded of throughout this book, one big beastie can seem a little underwhelming as a result.

What it lacks in raw drama, Dragonslayer makes up for with some fantastic character work - side-characters from Daemonslayer are given increased focus and personal stakes, with a few rather tense moments of conflict and some interesting insights into the way different cultures and classes of people in the Warhammer world view themselves and their places in it. In particular we get some great looks at the nature of wizards in the Empire, and some cool sequences within Karak Kadrin - the city of Slayers.

Along with this sojourn in Slayer Keep, we get an appropriate look at other slayers beyond Gotrek. The sheer variety of these characters is amazing, and reminiscent of some of the more entertaining aspects of the Nights Watch from A Song of Ice and Fire, exaggerated and given extra flavor by the ridiculous quirks of dwarfish nature. As is appropriate for a novel that takes place partially within the capital of all Slayer culture, the Slayers themselves are probably the best part of this book.

Dragonslayer is fun and will likely keep you invested on into the next novel. While lacking some of the meat which makes the other Gotrek & Felix books amazing as opposed to merely entertaining, its issues are one of lack of content - a sense of wanting to see more - rather than the quality of the content not matching its own set standards.

Check it out if you've come this far. The Slayers are worth it alone.
