My favourite duo from the world of Warhammer have a new book from Black Library! Gotrek & Felix: Road of Skulls by Josh Reynolds seems to be the start of a fantastic new year for the slayer and his poet friend!
“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 race to the dwarf hold at Karak Kadrin, finding it besieged by one of the grand armies of Chaos under the command of Warlord Garmr. When King Ungrim Ironfist speaks of the legendary ‘Road of Skulls’ and of the hated foe’s attempts to open a portal into the Realm of Chaos, Gotrek senses that a great doom awaits him – though it may not be the one he would choose for himself. As the king’s own son leads his army of Slayers to fulfil an ancient prophecy, it seems that Garmr’s hour of victory may be at hand…”
Sounds like an exciting adventure from Reynolds who also wrote the superb Knights of the Blazing Sun novel. He has also written a selection of shorts in the Warhammer world so he knows what he is doing!
The cover art by Winona Nelson is also pretty epic, it certainly makes me want to start reading.
Will you be grabbing this?
