During the Golden Age of the dwarfs, Karak Eight Peaks was a beacon of prosperity. Now it is beset by foes – skaven, goblins and more. The tales in this omnibus chart the desperate defence against these brutal enemies.
Once, during the great Golden Age of the dwarfs, Karak Eight Peaks was a beacon of prosperity and unbridled wealth. Many a dwarf king looked on with envious eyes at this sprawling mountain fastness. But the history of the dwarfs is riddled with tragedy and none more so than the lords of Eight Peaks whose holds were devastated by earthquakes and ravaged by the predatations of goblins, ratmen and even darker horrors.
This omnibus edition charts three bleak episodes in the history of the doomed Eight Peaks and its fall to annihilation and infamy. From warlords like the cunning goblin king Skarsnik and the murderous skaven chieftain Headtaker to the noble dwarfs seeking to save or reclaim these war-torn halls for their kin like Thorgrim Grudgebearer, all have a stake in the fate of the notorious Karak Eight Peaks.
Includes the novels Skarsnik and Headtaker, the novella Thorgim and several short stories.
