Publisher's Summary

A Gotrek novel

When the Bad Moon rises, Gotrek Gurnisson descends into the heart of Skragrott, the Loonking's twisted, fungal empire in pursuit of vengeance.

Listen to it because:

The Slayer hunts the most ancient enemies of his people in the heart of their domain. It may not be the world he was born in, and they may go by the name grots now, but no self-respecting dwarf is ever going to turn down the chance to kill hordes of goblins....

The story:

Hell-bent on ridding himself of the Fyreslayer rune buried in his chest, Gotrek Gurnisson, the greatest slayer to ever live, travels deep into the strange, alchemical realm of Chamon. Using their mysterious aether-science, the Kharadron overlords of Barak-Urbaz offer an end to Gotrek’s quest. But, as the Bad Moon rises and murderous Gloomspite Gitz threaten to destroy the sky-port, Gotrek pits himself against the most ancient enemy of his people - the greenskins. While his aelven travelling companion, Maleneth Witchblade, struggles to keep him alive, Gotrek throws himself headlong into a bloody battle for survival that will take him into the dank, fungal heart of Skragrott’s Asylum.

Written by Darius Hinks. Running time 9 hours 46 minutes. Narrated by Jonathan Keeble.

Enormously bad.

Gotten, one of the most awesome characters of all time, struggles to defeat frogs, waits, and to avoid being turned into a mushroom. Yes, the story is that bad.

another master piece

once again we see the literary talen of Darius Hinks and the great performance of Jonathan Keeble, as we dive deep into the world of one of my favorite AoS factions, the Caradron Overlords. the pacing is spot on and the emotional turns hint at something even greater to come as Gotrek meets these strange dwarves and their most peculiar enemy, gobbos with mushroom magic, to put it bluntly hehe

Loved it

One of the best Gotrek books ever! The narrative was very good and at times powerful.

Worth it!

I was a little nervous about doing this as just an audiobook since I did the audio dramas with full casts before this. Mr. Keeble delivers! Great Gotrek voice and the Grots voices were on point. Darius' portral of the gobbos was hilarious and really fleshed them out. He also painted a great picture of the realm of metal!

What Gloomspite should have been!

Fans of the Gloomspite Gitz will love this book! It’s what Gloomspite should have been. Every other chapter in the book is from the Gitz perspective. We get to see their cunning plans being put into action as the Bad Moon rises. There is everything you would expect from the Gitz - backstabbing, betrayal, cunning, flying squigs, Gobbapalooza, the Asylum, everything! The only thing that would make me love the book even more would be if Skragrott got to feature.

It’s also a great continuation of the Gotrek saga. We get to see him develop both as a character and in his relationships with the other characters like Maleneth. KO are a major part of the story and a Slaneesh Prince (unfortunately not Sigvald) even makes a surprise appearance in an interlude chapter.

Probably my favorite of the series and it sets things up nicely for whatever Gotrek is going to get up to next.

Great continuation of Gotrek's saga

Throughly enjoyed this title. Keeble's narration of gitz is spot on. First story I've listened to with gloomspite and their antics are what you'd expect.
Gotrek is developing well into age of sigmar. Really enjoyed his growth in this story. Hopefully the next title still includes the kharadron overlords. Hearing Gotrek smack talking high ranking overlords is awesome.

More Gotrek!!

The more stories about Gotrek the better 😁
This one also takes a look at the cultures of the Kharadron Overlords and the Gloomspite Gitz 👍

A worthy addition to the Gotrek mythos

Gitslayer follows in the now-old tradition of Gotrek stories in being something of a filler novel. It is a story where Gotrek is pitted against a particular foe whose race is largely chosen from a list of races that haven't been the antagonistic focus of a previous book. Nothing happens in terms of a broader story, though there are hints of some greater arc being developed. But, as with previous Gotrek novels that follow this format the tale is still worth telling and reading.

Worth a listen!

Loved the Gitz getting some more time in the loonlight! Felt a bit slow to get started but enjoyed the overall story progression.

just as mad as the shrooms the grobi take...

absolute, sheer, total, complete grobi lunacy. throw in an overcharged rune powered slayer with astonishing anger management issues, a duplicitous elf, a clearly ptsd stormcast with a smattering of kharadron, cook until boiling and listen as everything goes sideways as only gotrek can manage. Gotreks attitude towards the new dwarf races has matured into a fine hatred, and it shows. his disdain being apparent all the way through. maleneth actually showing something other than mere tolerance and something akin to actual caring. and then throw in a bit of a twist... yeah I'm a waffling fan boy totally, but another fantastic gotrek tale. the sense of dread that is escalated by more than just outnumbering or beating gotrek and crew is pretty damned fine. if a little disjointed at first. if I say anything more it'll give away the story. but you gotta love a gotrek quip. and I'll leave you with this one...

"you need to stop mucking about with fart dragons, and deal with the real threat!"

quite possibly my favourite so far...

Something Missing

This is the weakest Gotrek book to come out in a while. Love Gloomspite Gitz lore and love Gotrek books so was sad this book didnt reach the heights i wanted. All got a bit wierd in last third and not much happens in first 2 thirds.
Hope noone listens to this as their first book as all the others are far better.

good but not great

while I did enjoy it and big fan of the hack and slash gotrex and Felix books I found this ones characters especially the goblin ones not the strongest.

I nearly stop listening with the first meeting of the goblins ! learning about the characters and all the stupid goblin language talking nearly made me stop listening. happy I kept listening and this wasn't a big theme
