An enjoyable fantasy romp told by way of an interview with a playwright in an insane asylum who claims to met the titular Skarsnik the goblin king known as the Warlord of the Eight PeaksThe book has aspects of a rags to riches story in that Skarsnik starts out as the lowest of the low the smallest of his brood usually a death sentence but gradually through care and cunning the goblin carves out his destiny as one of the greatest of his kind no mean feat when trying form battleplans with a force that struggles to understand the basic concept of a map when the only creature that thinks of him as possibly just POSSIBLY than an expendable runt is Duffskull a particularly batty old shaman with a penchant for smoking and fungus beerMy only criticism is that the occasional climatic moment happens off page and the odd long awaited showdown with an opponent is cut short by a low blow from the protagonist while certainty in character it does makes the scene a bit of a damp suib Though slightly and enjoyably visceral in places Skarsnik shys away from outright or gratuitous gore Suitable for anyone who bares in mind stabbin' will still happen

The goblin chieftain Skarsnik’s name is known and feared throughout the Old World When a greenskin horde threatens the borders of the Empire the greatest military minds in Altd. I DEVOURED this book It's been a long time since I've felt such sheer joy reading No doubt I am a bit biased because I've been a Warhammer Orcs and Goblins aficionado all my life and I've been waiting for the Black Library to finally break down and throw us greenskin fans a bone Well SKARSNIK was than just a bone it was a meaty fleshroom banuet that answers all sorts of lingering uestions about how greenskins survive thrive and yes even reproduceThe heart of the story is the autobiography of Skarsnik Warlord of Karak Eight Peaks and the most powerful Night Goblin in history His tale though is nestled like a matryoshka in a series of framing tale to the point where the reader is never uite sure how much of the account is true how much is Skarsnik embellishing how much is lost in the game of whisper down the lane and how much is just pure shaggy dog story Skarsnik told Bickenstadt the mad playwright Bickenstadt told Wollendorp the greenskin academic and Wollendorp's story was recounted by the almost entirely offscreeen Guido Kleinfeld At first I wasn't sure what the point was of having so many framing stories but when Haley finally pulls the rug out from under you in the last chapter I realized it wouldn't have the same impact any other wayStill at the core this is the story of a goblin perhaps the greatest goblin of his age but a goblin nonetheless And in that Haley achieves something remarkable He reclaims goblins from the ranks of comic relief and puts them on full display as sadistic lunatic monsters and yet somehow still makes us root for one of them Skarsnik's long hard road from the runtiest of runts to the mightiest of warlords cowing even Orc bosses like Gorfang Rotgut is a fascinating ride I can't recommend it highly enough for any fans of fantasy but this should be mandatory reading for Warhammer Orc and Goblin players
