So it was interesting to see the two clashing once more. Werner has taken that existing character of Thanquol and expanded it while remaining true to the original. In fairness, the constant changing of Thanquol's attitudes to suit the immediate situation was laid on a little thick at time. But nonetheless, in Thanquol's Doom the story of Thanquol continues and even deepens a little. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

If you've read the previous two Thanquol and Boneripper books, or if you've read any of the Gotrek and Felix series, then you know what you're getting with this book, which just happens to be pure Warhammer-skaven-y awesomeness. I love rats, ergo I love skaven, ergo I love Thanquol.
He's just so His casual violence to his underlings, his insane machinations, he's just adorable! What sums him up for me is the scene where he orders his subordinates to "Stop dying! I like the clash between the dwarves care for one another and the esteem in which they hold tradition, and the skaven self-centredness and scramble to take control by whatever means necessary. An awesome character in this I would have liked to have seen more of was a skaven called Nikkrit, who was Thanquol's standard bearer for a while.
He was great comic-relief.

Although given command of an entire skaven army, he knows it will not be enough to defeat the fortress. However Thanquol has a plan involving an ancient and powerful artifact which he believes he can use to create a weapon that will bring glory to him and possible bring about his ascension to the Council of Thirteen. However when his rival the famous general Ikit Claw usurps command in search of his own glory, Thanquol will have to act fast.
Will Thanquol be able to unleash his secret weapon and bring about glory to himself? Or will it be stolen from him by fellow skaven, or even worse, the dwarves emerging victorious.

Ah, Thanquol. Our favourite skaven hero returns once more to do untold harm to the world of men skaven dwarves! Having survived the jungles of Lustria the council of thirteen have devised a new plan to kill him. Or so Thanquol thinks. They are obiously afraid of his power, charisma and leadership!
This time he's sent of to try and destroy the dwarven fortress of Karak Angkul. This puts him right between rivalling Skaven clans, very angry dwarves and quite a few backstabbing traitorous skaven a de Ah, Thanquol.
This puts him right between rivalling Skaven clans, very angry dwarves and quite a few backstabbing traitorous skaven a description fitting just about every skaven Luckily clan Skryre have managed to steal back the corpse of Thanquols very first Rat ogre, Boneripper, and using dark magic and weird science managed to resurrect and improve it. Too bad about the safety valve stopping it from attacking skaven of clan Skryre A fun and interesting novel.
Thanquol is by far my favourite character of the warhammer fantasy world. Jan 22, Dave rated it liked it Shelves: fantasy.
Great post. It was after sneaking pass several patrols did Lurk reach the central structure of the encampment and there he saw it, with fear gripping at his very heart. Being such an infamous figure in the Under-Empire, Thanquol took advantage of the strongholds misfortunes and was fed handsomely until he made ready to leave. Item added to your basket View basket. Thanquol had to journey fast to the north, following the airship in hopes of not losing communication with Lurk. After sprinting through the winding halls of the mansion, his bodyguard came into an erupt stop, with Thanquol smacking snout first at the creatures massive frame. Fortunately, thanks to the blessings of the Horned Rat, Thanquol survived the encounter when the mineshaft collapsed just as the Engineer aimed his pistol at him.
Third book in the series about the scheming skaven Thanquol, which is a nice break from the dark heroic fantasy of the Warhammer series. The act is getting a little old though, and there's lapses in the plot where Thanquol's enemies have a habit of just disappearing as though shunted off-stage or leaps in the narrative, only to be replaced by a totally new character who just appears to drop from the sky, or rather ceiling.
Nice humorous touches as Thanquol takes on a bunch of progressive dwarves Third book in the series about the scheming skaven Thanquol, which is a nice break from the dark heroic fantasy of the Warhammer series. Nice humorous touches as Thanquol takes on a bunch of progressive dwarves, along with a Warlock Enginner who devises the Warhammer equivalent of the Death Star. Fast moving, quite enjoyable, and certainly unique. Mar 13, Maximilian Surjadi rated it really liked it Shelves: fantasy , warhammer , gruesome. I really love the twist ini this book. Never thought my favourite character, Queek Headtaker, would make appearance in this novel.
Didn't see the Bloodthirster coming either!
Each of Thanquol decision seems always lead him into a worse position, sooner or later. Too bad this is the last of the trilogy. Sep 24, Gavin Gates rated it liked it.
Good book, this is I think the 3rd in a series and there is a lot in there that doesn't make sense on its own. Werner has a brilliant dark humour present from start to finish. I can't wait to pick up the prior ones and then read this one again. Mar 31, Kenneth rated it really liked it Shelves: warhammer.
