    It was a fun, short romp through a random war with little detail and a decent grasp of world building and characterisation I learntabout the societies of two species in Warhammer in these 124 pages than I did in the entirety of the first Felix and Gotrek novel Hinks didn t have many pages to mess up on, but he crammed a lot in and kept the story clear and easy to understand Plus, no time was wasted on internal monologue when action could show characterisation just as easily.

    Entertaining Especially the Skaven parts of the story which is otherwise decent at best a thick with back stabbing, dark humour and crazy absurdations A nice contrast to the dead serious, dramatic and oh so honourable elves.
