But they are a rip-roaring good time. The airship is described well and actually seems plausible.
Gotrek & Felix: The First Omnibus : William King :
William King sets his story in a fantasy like world that one would ususally find in a princess book. The short stories that appeared afterwards were good, not as fantastic as the main books, but they had their share of good times.
May 26, Skrach The Goblin rated it did not like it. One thing that pleased me is that the fisrt seems to be more Eastern European based than most fantasy. In the fellx 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.
He is seemingly impossible to kill, having survived, among other things, a single combat with a Bloodthirster of Khorne, being hit by a stone hurled by a trebuchet, being catapulted into an orc ship and falling three hundred feet off a cliff.
Gotrek is a one-dimensional killing machine but he has funny lines. I expected some silly extended universe schlock to sate my thirst for Warhammer lore after playing Vermintide. Still pretty enjoyable though, good action and a lot of laughs. Review quote ‘A vicious sense of pacing and style, and they’re just plain fun to read.

I loved this omnibus! Sure to be a classic There they fight the disgusting ratman, called the Skaven who plan an invasion on the city. But I don’t think it’s my first encounter with the Warhammer universe, I’m pretty sure my dad used to have it on the PS1.
Ulrika also now has her own book series which seem to chronicle her adventures between her last appearance in Vampireslayer and return in Manslayer – “Ulrika the Vampire” series, beginning with Bloodborn and continuing with Bloodforged and Bloodsworn. Fans of high adventure in the style of Robert Howard will like this book, with its stories of bravado, magic and mayhem. Anyway, I understand, why William King has done such a thing. Having committed a crime so terrible that only death in battle will serve as atonement, Gotrek has fought and slain numerous monsters, including hordes of orcs and Skaven, a giant, trolls, Chaos warlords and sorcerers, an entire Black Ark of Naggaroth and even a Bloodthirster of Khorne, and unfortunately in his mind lived to fight another day.

Their final adventure takes place in the far north, in a land called the Chaos wastes, where time itself is said to not exist. Gotrek looks like Cartman’s character in Make Love not Warcraft. Now, I am greatly looking forward to the Second Omnibus, and to the other books in the series. Therefore I am forced to bear it forth ’til death do us part I hope. Description Re-issue of the omnibus edition of the first three Gotrek and Felix novels.
