Review Text

  • By Ursula K. Raphael on 1 November 2011

    You have Jeremias Scrivner, the human sorcerer from the first novel, and Lord Tlaco, the mage-priest Slann from the second novel, together planning a way to "fix the Great Math" by getting rid of a "miscalculation" by the name of Grey Seer Thanquol. I thought Thanquol's Doom was a brilliant way to tie the various storylines together, while giving readers a third Skaven misadventure.I say misadventure because Thanquol is forced into yet another political conspiracy between clans by Seerlord Kritislisk -- this time the inventive Skyre clan, and the muscle clan Mors -- involving a war with the dwarves of Karak Angkul. Literally everything goes wrong for Thanquol; I had no way of predicting what was going to happen from one chapter to the next.The POV switches between the skavens and the dwarves, but this time the alternating narration worked much better than it did in Temple of the Serpent because both views were describing the same point in the timeline. When you leave the skavens' perspective to read the dwarves' perspective, you are returned almost to the exact moment you had left off the skavens' POV, so you are never left to wonder what happened to either group while you were reading about the one or the other.Despite his obvious negative traits, Werner has done an excellent job developing Thanquol as the ultimate antagonistic character. I haven't enjoyed a bad guy this much, since Darth Vader. Thanquol's Doom provides a lot of insight into Thanquol's twisted way of thinking, as well as showing how powerful he has become since the first two novels. Unfortunately, Thanquol has been so preoccupied with the intrigue of Skavendom that he completely overlooks how many other races perceive him as a very dangerous threat.This was definitely my favorite of the three Thanquol & Boneripper adventures, the first being Grey Seer, and I hope the three novels will be released in an omnibus like the Brunner the Bounty Hunter: Omnibus.P.S. Even Boneripper has changed since the first two novels. ;)

    As a great fan of Thanquol and his ambitious cowardice, I was eager to read this. Bought a new copy, even. It was sort of OK, but a distinct fall on the others.As usual the skaveny bits were fine. The weakness is especially in the [spoiler alert, read on with care]dwarf characters who behaved frankly illogically, and the main plot, which makes not much sense even by the flexible standards of the Warhammer world. Why does this matter? Because you buy into the story, ideally, so when daft things happen it jolts you out of your buy-in.And the ongoing technological leaps are getting ridiculous, if Clan Skyre are supposed to be able to make [deleted to not spoil]and plenty of them, and dwarfs the copper-link [deleted to not spoil]the semi-medieval war of Warhammer would be over in an instant. No more axes and wizards.Maybe time for a new new author?I felt like giving it two stars but added one for old times sake

    Not a bad little book if i'm honest. By no means as gripping as Temple of the Serpent but C. L. Werner does Thanquol justice in his third outing. Great nods to both Felix and Gotrek and we hope they have a new book soon!
