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.

It has great reviews for a reason!!

I basically ran out of Warhammer 40K books and this was my first real foray into Warhammer fantasy. I’ve known about the Trollslayer for over a decade so I thought I’d give it a try. Great stories, great characters and awesome narration as usual from Jonathan Keeble. Now I’m on to the next instalment.

Great stuff!!

The performance makes this one

Loved this book. Some great sword and sorcery action with fun characters. The narration really elevates this one above and beyond though. Definitely recommend this to anyone who likes high octane action in their fantasy.

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.
