It really just depends on how the technique is used: The old guard are mostly all back, all get a pretty cool cameo, Eisenhorn, Nayl, Abnet, Patience Kys but don’t get much ‘screen time’ hopefully they’ll play larger parts in the following novels.

Alizabeth If you haven’t read the Paroah trilogy or the Ravenor trilogy, then in my humble opinion you should put this down. Throughout the Ravenor trilogy, she remained comatose in a stasis tube. Thus a very interesting and different look at the Warhammer 40k world.

Pariah by Dan Abnett – Book Review [Bellarius] « Black Library « The Founding Fields

Prone to purple prose even more so than many other characters — far past the point of adding colour to the environment — she often seems utterly out of control. I tried several times to read through the series, I’d force abnftt to finish the first book and get about a third or halfway through the second and completely lose interest.

But she’s a different person, so there’s no resolution or complication for any of the relationships that we knew of. With the Eisenhorn and Ravenor trilogies ending with such finality, Abnett needed to spend time building a annett world for them to battle in and establishing the new ideas.

Oct 24, Michael Alexander Henke rated it it was amazing Shelves: To me that was novel. Compared with the likes of other books, which all too often simply turn their characters into examples of their factions, the groups here are far more three dimensional, and played out more as suspects in a murder case than figures in a war.


Abnett writes, this is the one I most fervently hope he returns to and completes.

Dec 08, Jean-Luc rated it it was amazing. I’m willing to make room for certain genre conventions such as the happily-ever-after for a couple in a romance novelbut any time the autho I’m one of those readers who enjoys patiah good twist in any story I’m reading.

Nov 02, Ross Hamilton rated it really liked it. Neither Eisenhorn nor Ravenor is the star here, though. Beta’s Ordos may not be what it seems.

Woven throughout ran core narrative, we see each tier of its social structure, powers and examples of its history built up chapter by chapter.

RAPID FIRE: Dan Abnett Talks The Magos

Am I a hypocrite for not liking Pariah as much as I thought I would? My only criticism is that Bequin isn’t much of a character in this book.

Normally Dan Abnett novels have me burning through their pages because I need to know what happens next.

No, it did not work for me at all. Teke of the Emperor’s Children was an interesting villain, if underused.

Oct 24, Ash Barker rated it it was ok Shelves: I really did like though, Teke, the Emperor’s Children marine, he was a fun, memorable villain who seemed to steal every scene he was in, he also kind of made sense being there because of the Eisenhorn’s earlier encounter with the Emperor’s Children traitor legion. It takes a few pages to get going, and then leads you on some blind chases before getting to the meat of the matter as teams from both Inquisitors seek the services of Bequin, who is what is known as a “blank” who does not react or register to psychic powers.

Books by Dan Abnett. Mystery lovers, science fiction aficionados, and of course Warhammer 40k fans will love this book. Like any good inquisitor, Bequin acquires her own retinue, but attrition takes its toll.

I think I’ve found my new favourite Warhammer 40k book.

His novels with Inquisitors Gregor Eisenhorn and Gideon Ravenor are some of my favourites in all of Warhammer 40, and were my early reads as well.

Do you see Eisenhorn in a different light these days, having subsequently written about Ravenor and Bequin?

Talk around the Warhammer 40K fandom is that Abnett is one of those writers who doesn’t use Space Marines gratuitously or completely mangle their characterizationso I was rather surprised to see not one, but two factions of Chaos Space Marines make their appearance in the latter end of Pariah. You may be surprised I certainly wasbut Dan Abnett abneht care what I think!
