FANTASY REVIEW: Dwarfs - Nick Kyme, Gav Thorpe

Release Date: 09/06/11


The dwarfs are a stoic and long-lived race. Their unbending will and pride serve them as fearsome warriors on the battlefield and the greatest craftsmen across the Old World. But cross them at your peril, as a dwarf grudge is never forgotten, a quest for revenge handed down from generation to generation until the debt is settled in blood - In this action-packed omnibus, the bravery and resilience of the dwarfs is brought to life as they wage war against the twisted powers of Chaos, vile skaven ratmen, brutal greenskins and their oldest adversaries, the mysterious and powerful elves. From the ancient dwarf holds to the killing fields of the Empire, war will be waged in the name of Grungni , Grimnir and Valaya, and no foe shall forget the day they met these unbreakable warriors in battle. Contains the novels Grudgebearer, Oathbreaker and Honourkeeper.


Fans of the stunties will love the chance to grab this compendium title made up of three of the best tales of dwarven heroics, vengeance and of course grudges from the Black Library. Contained within this title is: Grudge Bearer, Oathbreaker and Honour Keeper alongside the short story Ancestral Honour which makes up some seriously good value for money. Add to this two of the Black Library’s very talented authors, some great prose, some addictive dialogue along with the acquired dwarven humour which pretty much translates to an axe in the head and the reader really is in for a high octane combat driven set of stories that will inspire many a table top general to re-enact. Great stuff all in.
