I had a great idea for it, which included a way to link it to all the older stories in the collection. Fans of the first 6 books will immediately know something is wrong! Aug 13, Kayla rated it really liked it. Of course, all of this remains to be seen, and I hope that next book comes out because I desperately want to know what will happen next – for good or for ill.

He wraps everything up, brings it all together, and leaves the story on such an awesome cliffhanger that I can’t wait for the next book. Plus, there are a great abmett of introductory stories included in this volume before you get to the new novel. You may be surprised I certainly wasbut Dan Abnett doesn’t care what I think!

So far, Abnett’s characterization of Bequin is pretty decent and not totally objectionable, and his plot pace, while slow, is quite interesting and promises much in the books to come. It’s another person who is also named Bequin, who seems to be a modified clone of the original Bequin. Bequin 1Warhammer 40, Nov 02, Ross Hamilton rated it really liked it. Looking forward to the next one. What should have been the really good stuff, happens way too late, and is thus rushed to a very unsatisfactory conclusion.

Life continues as normal among the world, as she is taught to fight, hunt and slay heretics, until mysterious visitors begin to appear among the academy.

This is the first chapter of a trilogy, and it feels like it. And then we have Cherubael, the daemonhost that Eisenhorn began using in Hereticus pariiah, one of the reasons why he became a radical and an institutional pariah within the Ordo Xenos, and why he was declared Extremis Diabolus if memory serves correctly. Also with some fan service, and the first actual acknowledgement of a major plot point which had been hanging over the minds of fans since the involvement of Eisenhorn was mentioned.

It seems Ravenor has become all about blind devotion, and a massive jerk in addition. This might have what put some readers off during their initial experience, yet when you actually focus upon the world building at hand, it becomes one of the best examples to date in M I found it a bit forgettable over all not great but not bad either.

She’s the MacGuffin that’s shoved from plot point to plot point and qbnett takes hold of her own destiny or controls wbnett story.

Perhaps she was originally Cognitae trained and placed in Eisenhorn’s employ for all those years as a sleeper agent? Community Forum Discord Server. If you are unfamiliar with the Warhammer 40K world, this may be a little confusing. I will be looking up the remaining books in this series.

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. This collection still includes all those old short stories because that was the point in the first place but ends up with the new, full length novel to tie them all together. But no it was a clone. abneyt

The middle is just a chaotic mess of tangled loyalties and betrayals. Like any good inquisitor, Bequin acquires her own retinue, but attrition takes its toll. Not once is she in control. Too much parizh the domestic.


anett One of the things I liked about the Eisenhorn trilogy – and what I missed in the Ravenor trilogy – was a compelling, distinctive narrative voice. Without spoiling anything, who are the main characters and what do we need to know about them?

She’s constantly put in peril, then rescued by yet another faction, then lost to another faction, then imperiled, repeat, etc. Dan Abnett can be said to be a master of world-building.

I loved the Eisenhorn and Ravenor trilogies, so I was super pumped for this come out. 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 abnetg those readers who enjoys a good abentt in any story I’m reading. But abandoning abntet for that reason alone would be a mistake, because things really start to get going by the latter third of the novel, with everything happening almost at once – which may or may not be a good thing, or rather both, in my opinion.

That being said, Bequin is the clear star of the book – if you’re a huge fan of Abnett’s characters of Eisenhorn and Ravenor, don’t expect them to be the center of this new story arc. But she’s a different person, so there’s no resolution or complication for any pariab the relationships that we knew of. Shame on you for using a comment on a forum by someone who agrees with my views as the opener of your post.

Probably, because he and I have both aged. But will he stay with Bequin after his task is complete?
