Book # 8: Grudgebearer by Gave Thorpe.

Like the previous entry, this one too was read quite awhile ago.

Ahh, dwarfs or dwarves,  Whatever you like to use.  I love ’em.  Put ’em in a game, a book, a RPG, and I will be drawn to them.  I don’t know why, but dwarfs fascinate me in literature.  And I particularly like the lore that Games Workshop has worked around their dwarfs in their universe.    Grudgelore is just, really, a collection of short stories around various grudges that need to be resolved by particular set of dwarves we are following.  If you are not a fan of Warhammer dwarfs, this book may be hard to follow or even to enjoy.  The book assumes that you are a fan of the universe that is being played in and assumes you know certain things.  What the skaven are.  What the greenskins are.  If you are not a fan of this universe, there is very little here to like.  This book is less than 300 pages, so there is not too much to say about it overall.  I liked it, but I don’t think you average every-day reader would much here to like.  However, if you are fan of dwarfs of the Warhammer ilk.  Pick this up.
