Publisher's Summary

Realmslayer is the most exciting project I have worked on in years, and playing Gotrek fired my imagination with wonder. He possesses enormous courage and imagination, and is totally fearless – more powerful than any hero in literature and history.

What a challenge! It was like playing ten King Lears at once! He will live forever.

(Brian Blessed, the voice of Gotrek Gurnisson in Realmslayer)

Gotrek Gurnisson was the greatest monster slayer of the age, who met his doom at the End Times. The heroic duardin stepped forth into the Realm of Chaos to fight the daemons gnawing at the world's ending and satisfy his death oath, leaving behind his companion Felix Jaeger. 

Now Gotrek has returned, having outlived the old gods and the Old World. Spat from the ruinous depths with his redemption unfulfilled, he emerges into the Mortal Realms, a strange new world where gods walk the earth and dark forces are ascendant. Nothing is as he remembers. His oaths are dust, and the lands are torn asunder by Chaos.   

Yet when Gotrek learns of human champions being elevated to immortality for Sigmar’s fight against this darkness, the so-called 'Stormcast Eternals', he knows why fate has brought him into this new age. To find Felix. For only then can he find the peace in death he seeks. But is there more to Gotrek's apotheosis than even he can fathom? Has he truly been chosen by Grimnir and for what purpose?

Solid return for Gotrek

My only complaint is how brief everything is but its a surprisingly good return to form of the original series mixed with the straight high fantasy of the second authors books. The changes to Gotrek are appropriate for a dwarf stuck in the realm of Chaos for about ten thousand years and the characters that come along perfectly fitting.

Well voice acted, accompanying sound effects perfectly over the top, chapters get broken up into parts sort of like the originals in Trollslayer and Skavenslayer and is used to good effect. Very reminiscent of where the series started without being an uninspired series of repeats.

Now we need the original series done this way, plus all of Ciaphas Cain, Black Librarys latest effort for their audio have been amazing and these older series seeing new love is amazing.

An excellent story

Great, even if you're not familiar with the previous Felix and Gotrek fiction. All I knew going in was that they were a dwarf and a human who had some adventures.

I only wish it lasted longer. Amazing that each character has their own voice actor. I cant wait for the next in the series.

Gortek makes a huge entrance!

This is the best audio drama I've had the pleasure to listen to. Everything is amazing. All of the actors' performance is fantastic, revealing an enthusiasm for the story being told and to for their work. The story is a perfect introduction for Gortek coming to the Age of Sigmar. Brian Blessed is perfect for the Doomslayer and I hope does more of them.

If you want a substitute for reading, dont bother.

I'm sure the story itself is good but the audible goes on like a movie. When you listen to this it is almost like you are getting bits and pieces of a story but they dont tell you the rest. I am just going to rent the book from the library instead and hopefully it isnt as broken.

very good

Staying true to the series with lots of character reference from the old world. However i can't help but feel that something or maby "someone" was missing!

He bit off my nose!

The headline will make sense when you listen to the audio drama.

Black Library delivers an outstanding performance with a top-notch cast, and the writing for the drama will leave Warhammer fans happy and wanting more.

I have never dived into Gotrek's story, nor the Age of Sigmar universe, but after listening to this audio drama I have a renewed interest in both Gotrek's story arc and the greater Age of Sigmar universe.

Warhammer fans and new listeners will find this title to be well worth their time and coin (or credit) - happy listening.

An absolute must!

An amazing cast and production that makes it feel like a (great) Hollywood movie! I actually listened to the whole thing in one sitting. They need to make more of these!

I've been listening to GW audio dramas / books for years and this is by far the best thing they've done (and they've done a lot of great stuff)!

What a treat!

This story is an absolute treat. Great production valves and excellent work by the voice cast. I know it’s hard to imagine but I actually forgot Brian Blessed was voicing Gotrek, he is superb. The only negative I’ll say is that the last hour is interviews so maybe not so much story as you might be suspecting. Still though it was great fun and I hope they do more. Well done Games Workshop.

"My axe thirsts, and I shall lead her to drink!"

The only negative I have about this production is that I want so much more of it!!! This isn't an audiobook, a reading of a novel, but more a radio play, relying on the amazing ambient sound effects and the divine delivery of all the voice actors involved. Dialogue heavy, sound effects and music are all perfectly balanced and Gotrek was made for Blessed! Story is only four hours long, last hour is interviews. Set up for a whole series. Bring it on!!!!

Tremendous performance from the cast and Brian Blessed in particular! Great story that runs along at breakneck speed. Only downside was that it was over so quickly!

Great

Probably the best audio book for me to date! The last hour or so is just talking about the book itself which is not good as really the book is less then 4 hours long!

Blessed is the perfect dwarf.

Wonderful audio drama. Blessed is perfect as Gotrek; how has he not been signed up for this before? Best one of the Warhammer audio dramas that I've listened to.

misleading length, story generic, amazing cast

first up over 1 hour of this are cast interviews!
the story is quite generic , no arc for main character, standard for a gotrek novel
performances are great
age of sigmar is really stupid, what can I say, it's hard to make it decent. the setting is beyond ridiculous.
