Every two weeks we read a new book in the WH40k universe and discuss it on our podcast. We invite you to read along with us and join in on our conversation via comments, Twitter, email, or vox cast.
For this episode we’re diving into another Limited Edition with Ghazghkull Thraka: Prophet of the Waaagh! by Nate Crowley. As soon as you can purchase on Amazon, Black Library, or Audible, we will have links! In the meantime, why not check out some other orks books we’ve read?
From the back of the book:
Of the billions of greenskins who swarm the galaxy, only the name of one strikes fear into the hearts of human and xenos alike: Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka.
The Warlord of Warlords.
The Beast of Armageddon.
The Prophet of the Waaagh!
With his tusks, fists, and power claw, he does the holy work of Gork and Mork – and soon all worlds will burn in his bootprints.
Mystery shrouds how such a beast came to exist, and rumours abound that the mighty warlord was once just like any other ork. But if that is the case, how did his ascendance come to be? Many have lost their minds trying to unravel the mystery. Lord Inquisitor Tytonida Falx has headed into the murky depths of heresy to find the answer, only this time, something is different. She possesses something the others did not. Custody of the one creature in the universe who claims to know the truth of it all. Ghazghkull’s banner bearer: Makari the Grot.
Questions to ponder after reading Ghazghkull Thraka: Prophet of the Waaagh!:
- Did you like the book?
- What parts stood out?
- What surprised you most about Ghazghkull? Is he really the prophet of Gork and Mork?
- Do you agree with Grotsnik’s view about his and Makari’s purpose?
- Were you surprised about the Blood Axe’s and Makari’s comprehension of the Imperium?
- What do you make of the ork religion?
- Is Falx a “good” inquisitor? Was the trade-off worth the cost?
- BL just revealed Wolftime, next in the Dawn of Fire series which will feature Thraka. What is your hope for Wolftime as it relates to this book?
Bit exclusionary to read a limited edition book for a book club.
We know. 🙁 We don’t do it that often, and we try to keep it only when there are no other new books out. Our original plan was to read Urdesh: The Serpent and the Saint, but it became clear rather quickly that extensive knowledge of the Gaunt’s Ghosts series was needed.
