A previous commentor said this book was "all doom and gloom". Well I got news for ya, this isn't your "Everquest, World of Warcraft or even Dungeons and Dragons" dwarves, or as the title says, Dwarfs.
The world of Warhammer is a very hardcore place and this book reflects it well. You won't get the dwarves here dancing around and goofing off like Hobbits or Halflings in other worlds. Ok, well maybe once or twice at great festivles. BUT, most of the time they are fighting for their lives, and let me tell you, the fighting is not watered down for the weak. As is most of the Warhammer universe, and I've just recently gotten into it, like 5 books or so, it's hard core "no sissys need apply" fantasy. One minute your rooting for a character and the next he may die a horible death to the Ratmen, Orcs, Goblins and many other nasty things here.
With that said, the writting is superb by both authors and I look forward to getting into more of their books!
I hope you get the chance to enjoy this book!
Thanks for reading :-)
Rather than a more traditional Warhammer omnibus, it is important to keep in mind that there are essentially 3 story arcs in the Dwarfs collection. The first two books (Grudgebearer, Oathkeeper) are in the same cycle. The third book (Honorkeeper) goes back to the early days of the Warhammer world, and then the forth book is Grudgelore.
The one thing that did bother me in this book was that the stories did not have absolute endings, either the epilogue or the last chapter leaves a cliffhanger ending that is not answered by the next story or anything else contained in this book. This was the only thing that left me a little bit frustrated and could be overlooked by the quality of the stories that are contained within this omnibus.
