Dragonslayer is the latest epic instalment in the death-seeking saga of Gotrek and Felix. After the daring exploits of Daemonslayer, the fearless duo find themselves pursued by the insidious and ruthless skaven-lord, Grey Seer Thanquol. Dragonslayer sees the fearless Slayer and his sworn companion back aboard an arcane Dwarf airship in a search for a golden hoard and its deadly guardian.
Review / VerdictWilliam King is indeed one of the best writers I had the pleasure of reading. All his books were done greatly. Great plots. Great characters. Great situations. Great evil doers. It was excelent. This great series began in Trollslayer, then Skavenslayer and Daemonslyer. I also reviewed the fifth book Beastslayer. As you can see all books have a rating of 9 or 10. So this tells us something no?
Slayer Gotrek Gurnisson is a dwarf on a death quest. He roams the land searching for the mightiest of evils to fight and slay until he is finally rewarded with a glorious death that will long be remembered and talked about for generations to come. Felix Jaegor is sworn to accompany the Slayer, however long it takes, even though it could end in his own death. Should he survive, it will be Felix's job to record and report the heroic dwarf's many battles, as well as how Gotrek fell in combat. This book continues just after Daemonslayer. It's not imperative you read it but you will only enjoy reading it.
