Please try again later. Yes, relix is Warhammer and being a fan of the universe, after seeing so many fans rave about this series I had to pick up this collection of the first few volumes. But it’s very formulaic and repetitive, even compared to most stories omnihus the fantasy genre. Every fflix goes, “Felix and Gotrek are on a journey. Felix is scared and has regrets about adventuring. Gotrek is tough and mean and obsessed with his doomed Slayer quest.
One is on a quest to die, the other is on a quest to help. This omnibus contains 13 short stories ranging from pages and a full length novel at the end.
This Omnibus chronicles teh adventures of a pair of warriors as they battle their way through the Warhammer Universe. The stories are in chronological order and the characters gain new gear, experiences, and scars as they battle their way across the World of Warhammer. Gotrek has committed a crime against his people and has been sentenced to die in glorious battle against overwhelming odds.
Felix is a fencer and a scholar who accompanies Gotrek and wants to write an epic saga of his death. Together, they rush headlong into danger as they make enemies and allies in a world at war.
All of the stories take place in the Warhammer Universe. It’s Gritty High Fantasy in a state of perpetual war and turmoil. Despite the fact that Gotrek has committed a serious crime, he is noble and lusts for the battle that will give him a glorious death. Felix owes Gotrek his life and accompanies him on his quest to die. Because Felix has spent so much of his life behind books, the travels across the world are new and exciting to him.
In addition to the deadly duo, this omnibus features an array of other heroes and villains. The characters are interesting, funny, entertaining, and you find yourself cheering for them.
The writing style is fast paced heroic fantasy. But it’s not just swords swinging and axes chopping, there’s a great deal of humanity in the characters. Settings are majestic, battles are bloody, characters are memorable, and dialogue is entertaining. It’s the complete package. If you’re looking for some background material on the Warhammer universe, the descriptions of the cities, dungeons, wastes, ruins, and battlefields are inspirational.
As you may have guessed, this book is loaded with cover tthe cover action. There are massive battles, skirmishes, assassinations, brawls, duels, more battles, deadly magic, beastmen, armies, ratmen, and even more battles.
In the battles, imnibus not just about who won, you actually feel adrenaline rushes as you read them. Limbs fall, heads roll, blood splatters Daemonslayer does a fantastic job at describing the horrors of war. Feelings of anxiety, dread, relief, victory, and loss are expertly portrayed through the book. Teens There are loads of fantasy violence and gore and non-descript sexual situations. Basically the lights go ogtrek and a couple wakes up happy the next morning. All of the stories are good and the book gets better as it progresses.
You’ll laugh, cringe, cheer, and learn a great deal about the World of Warhammer. If you enjoyed this, definitely pick up Robert E. You will probably also like the Drizzt books by R. I have read a lot of good sword-n-sorcery fantasy yarns and novels.
I love fantasy because it takes me to places I have never been and if the characters and storytelling is right, is all THERE, I become one with the characters and setting It’s not just some hack-n-slash story though there is certainly a good amount of blood and gore, but you get to know Felix as the bulk of the story is written through his eyes and you care about him and even his grumpy ole companion Trollslayer, Gotrek. I am not going to give away any of the stories but even mashing the first three books together, there was a consistent flow, the action never slowed, things flowed.
I couldn’t put the book down. For a ten year old book, you can gktrek this up fairly cheap and it is well worth whatever money you pay. One person found this helpful. This collection of the first three books in the series of Gotrek and Felix covers Trollslayer, Skavenslayer and Daemonslayer.
From the very first short-story this book had me hooked and didn’t let me go until the very end of the book. I devoured the pages in record time for me at least, which was under one week. If you love fantasy adventures with great characters that you can identify with, I heartily recomment this book.
I found it to be a great value over purchasing the books separately though this does make it less portable if you enjoy reading while on-the-go.
I am not a player of the Warhammer games, so I did not quite know what to expect going into this book. I had originally picked it up to gain some background on the Warhammer universe for a job interview with the Warhammer Online development team.
And even though I didn’t get the game programming job, I was happy to have found this treasure. The first two books are in frist short story format which made me eager to read several in a single sitting.
Looking at the table of contents I was leery that the final book, Daemonslayer, was not in the short story format as I had come to enjoy it so much. But the chapters flow so well in Daemonslayer anf I didn’t want the excitement to end.
I’m eagerly looking forward to the second and third omnibi omnibuses? See all 45 reviews. What other items do customers buy after viewing this item? Volume 1 Warhammer Chronicles Paperback.
