My review today is of Temple of the Serpent, the 2nd book in the Thanquol & Boneripper series. I'm really enjoying this series with the main character also being the main antagonist. Grey Seer Thanquol has always been a comedic villian character throughout his published history, a being with great power that doesn't know how to use it properly yet he seem touched by some uncanny luck that means he survives the most fatal of situations. He is of course accompanied as always by Boneripper, I belive the current Boneripper is the 5th or 6th to bear the name. In this novel we follow Thanquol and his skaven party, a human merchant crew blow off course and the strange, unfeeling lizardmen. Thanquol has disgraced himself and is approached by Clan Eshin to carry out a task for them to gain them favour with Clan Pestilens. The Slann mages in Lustria sense this problem and blow a human crew off course to combat this threat.
The humans are stranded and most think of nothing but the fabled cities of gold. Only a few see it for what it is 'The Green Hell'. As the story progresses the humans a picked off one by one by the various predators in the jungle. With out spoiling the ending there are a few plot twists, which I didn't see coming. Overall I recomend this book to anyone, it can be read as a standalone novel or if you wish to read his full exploits they can be found it the Gotrek & Felix Series
