Grey Seer by C. Werner Temple of the Serpent by C. Werner Mind-Stealer by C. Werner Characters[ edit ] Gotrek Gurnisson is the greatest or worst, depending on the viewpoint Dwarven Slayer ever to have lived. This apparent contradiction is rooted in the nature of the Slayer Oath.

In the stories in the first book contained within this omnibus, Gotrek and Felix encounter cultists, wolf-riding goblins, a ruined dwarven stronghold, a mutant-creating sorceror, and werewolves, among other things. After half a decade of putting it off, I finally picked it up.
The big Warhammer logo on the front was off putting, so much so that I almost put the book back down. I mean, fiction based on a role playing game? And who is this William King person anyway? Of course not. But they are a rip-roaring good time. I enjoyed myself tremendously. Gotrek is a one-dimensional killing machine but he has funny lines. Felix, on the other hand, is a well developed character that continually examines his place in the world.
The stories are well done, although there are some fantasy cliches present. One thing that pleased me is that the setting seems to be more Eastern European based than most fantasy. Can Felix and Gotrek foil the sinister pllots of the skaven? The second book in this omnibus is a collection of short stories, much like the first. The stories in this one, however, are much more closely tied together. The stories were a little too Felix-heavy and I never thought the skaven were compitent foes for Gotrek and Felix.
Still pretty enjoyable though, good action and a lot of laughs. On to the third book! But what will they find when, or if, they get there? Daemonslayer has the epic feel the other two books were lacking and is full of dwarfish goodness. Snorri Nosebiter, another Slayer, is introduced. The airship is described well and actually seems plausible. I like that the Warhammer dwarves are good at technology.
Upon completing the First Omnibus, I will say that I liked it a lot.
