For many long years, Felix Jaeger has followed the dwarf Slyer Gotrek Gurnisson across the world. Their adventures have been extraordinary; their heroic partnership the stuff of legends.
Now it ends.
With their friendship in tatters after a series of betrayals, the pair marches south at the head of a ragtag army, intent on driving the forces of Chaos out of the Empire and returning Felix to his wife. But Gotrek's doom is at hand, and great powers are at work to ensure that he meets it. With enemies on all sides and destiny calling, Felix must make a choice - to follow Gotrek into the darkness that awaits him, or to abandon his oldest friend once and for all.
