For a Wood Elves fan, having just read the Orion series, I hated the Khaine book. It was basically a Malekith monologue. Orion, greatest hero of the wood elves battles Tyrion and dies, but it all happens in one sentence. Not even taking place in the battle. He's just a report given to Malekith, never actually seen in the book. Meanwhile the elves go to Athel Loren because "Athel Loren will welcome us, it always has." Which is... Incorrect. To say the least. It felt like the author had never read or heard anything about Wood Elves, but got to change their entire dynamic. That said I enjoyed the first two End Times books quite a bit.
