Nov 21, Ben rated it liked it. This book started out quite slowly. Least of the points? A resident of Dubai, Shadowhawk reads, reads and reads. Welcome to this instalment of Rapid Firemy ongoing series of quick interviews with Black Library authors talking about their new releases.
The main character would be familiar to readers of those series – Alizebeth Bequin. This is the first chapter of a trilogy, and it feels like it.
The book has a steampunk feel to it, which I quite liked although others may disagree. Eisenhorn is a novel by Dan Abnetta continuation of his two previous novels, featuring Inquisitors Gideon Ravenor and Gregor Eisenhorn.
Pariah by Dan Abnett
In fairness, I had been waiting for this book for a very long time, so expectations were high. Hardcoverpages.
In an interview, Dan Abnett states this will be the first book in the Pariha Trilogy and this trilogy will conclude the Inquisitor abnet series. Log in and join the community. It is extremely rare for me to not finish a Black Library book, and Prospero Burns has that dubious honour, right alongside Eldar Prophecy by C. I am afraid that I must take issue with both of these statements. If you haven’t read the Eisenhorn trilogy or the Ravenor trilogy, then in my humble opinion you should put this down.
The main character and narrator is Beta Bequin, a pariah, or Blank, who has the power to nullify psychic energies.
It seriously starts to pick up the pace in the final chapters, abneth begins to be moving towards something substantial, and then abruptly ends with little fanfare. But i did at the end and now i want the next book Lexicanum pages needing citation. Right away, fans were excited: Far too much actually.
Community Forum Discord Server. Is it a familiar style, paria a departure? I’m one of those readers who enjoys a good twist aabnett any story I’m reading. As for the story itself, it’s rather slow to start, unlike the two trilogies that precede it.
Shadowhawk is a regular contributor to TFF. No trivia or quizzes yet. What I found very interesting about this book is that it deals with other parts of the Imperium. It starts off as a novel that can really put someone to sleep.
I had a tough time coming to grips with this, to the extent that I was wondering if I was even reading a Warhammer 40, novel! Poorly expressed opinions, nonsensical phrasing, appalling sentence structure and grammar are not the hallmarks of a site doing that job abnetg.
Far too much actually.
Beta Bequin is one such person. My problem is when it is overdosed for the reader, like Pariah is. His most recent novels — while I have enjoyed them — have often had chapters or sections that have come across as self-indulgent.
RAPID FIRE: Dan Abnett Talks The Magos
We deviate on some BL and other novels, but generally are pretty in synch. His abentt with Inquisitors Lariah Eisenhorn and Gideon Ravenor are some of my favourites in all of Warhammer 40, and were my early reads as well. Ah Greg, you could not be cuter if you tried really hard. The worst part of this book is, obviously, the long wait in between the gut churning end and the sequel, Penitent.
Thanks as always to Dan for taking the time to answer these questions. Beta Alizabeth Bequin is an interesting character. If so I will most certainly buy them.
Neither Eisenhorn nor Ravenor is the star here, though. A mess of characters. Add to that another aspect of the novel I did not like at all: I enjoyed it but not in my BL top 5 for There are some new characters, some old characters, and a plotline where I think anything I say would be a spoiler!
