In this first novel, Gotrek and Felix (both complete badasses) are introduced and some of their first adventures together are told. An exciting book to say the least, the heroes are caught up in radical plots by evil villians one after another, with very little "spacer." Basically, you get action, action, action the whole way through, which may dull your senses after a while but makes for a quick read and isn't too bad if you remember to keep the stories in their original context as seperate short stories. Anyway, this first tale of Gotrek and Felix and their early escapades against the forces of darkness and Chaos in the world of Warhammer is exciting and fun. Highly reccomended.
Geheimnisnacht: Daemon cultists are making sacrifices and summoning dark powers.
Wolf Riders: The pair are en route to Karak Eight Peaks, beyond the Empire's southernmost borders, to hunt for treasure guarded by a large troll. They meet up with a caravan and get hired as mercenaries. But the people seem to be having a long run of ill luck.
The Dark Beneath the World: The pair reach Karak Eight Peaks and enter the mines in search of the gold and to kill the troll guarding it. While there, the pair set out to free spirits of dwarfish ancestors.
The Mark of Slaanesh: Gotrek gets a head wound and has amnesia. Felix is on his own as he sets out to find an ingredient an alchemist needs to create a cure. Of course, the ingredient needed will not be easy to obtain.
Blood & Darkness: The pair go after a sorcerer of Chaos, his mutants, and female Chaos Warrior bent on killing a little girl.
Mutant Master: Felix is reunited with a student he knew during his time in Altdorf. The man is now nothing as he once was.
Ulric's Children: Sorcerer Voorman is using forbidden magic to transform (transmute) himself into something wicked.
**** Gotrek and Felix deal with zombie-like creatures, mutants, cultists, orcs, magicians, trolls, goblins, ogre, and much more during these adventures. Readers follow only the two main characters; there are no secondary characters. As always, author William King keeps a small bit of ironic humor in each adventure. This reads much like an anthology, except each tale starts off where the one before it ends. Very interesting reading, to say the least. ****

Felix Jagger was the second son of a wealthy merchant sent to study in the city of Aldtorf who after a duel killed his opponet. While trying to fight of city guards he encounter a dwarf who is taking on a group of them as they try to run over a little girl. Felix Jagger life will change forever as he find out through a night of heavy drinking with the dwarf he has sworn an oath to follow him and record Gotrek doom so that his tale will always be remebered for the ages.
Together these two will cross paths with chaos warbands, skaven, trolls and all manner of foul and filty things the stalk the shaodws in the warhammer world. And time and time again Gotrek and Felix survive only to march to some far corner of the world to find the doom the Gotrek is searching for. The Warhammer best be wary for these two and the magical weapons they weild for when it comes to action these two will be in the thick of it.
