I’ve read several and this is one of the first ones that the story did not revolve around Space Marines. Someone please get to work cloning Mr. Whereas I stand by the relevance of the points that I made — spoilers, bad spelling and grammar etc, I fully acknowledge that the above could have been better expressed, and I have already apologised both to the reviewer and the site for the tone of my comments. Or, at least you annett think so.
There was already too much of this angle in Prospero Burns, with secret societies and such, and it is no different here.
Fans who stick with the book will find their patience rewarded. To get the full impact, it would probably help to have read the original Eisenhorn trilogy.
Pariah by Dan Abnett
She really must be desperate to be an Inquisition agent, is all I can say. When Black Library announced last year that Dan Abnett was going to be penning a new installment for his Inquisition series, I was fairly excited.
This goes right on until the cliff hanger ending. Way to many, I abneft about six, all vying for one thing, Bequin. In the Maze Undue, the training facility for the Ordos, Beta and her classmates are taught the intricacies of being a top level field operative.
What I do feel however is that a site like TFF, which is well known and often referred to by authors — I. 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.
Oddly, I suppose it does. Pariah was a little slower to get going than some of Abnett’s other works although this did not count against it as a story.

I would respectfully request that my post be taken down by the site, as I seem unable to access it for editing, and I have no further wish for it to be there. 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.
Abnett should consider branching into the horror oariah with that quality of work. For me it is very 40k and I particularly love being away from the battlefield. With the Eisenhorn and Ravenor trilogies ending with such finality, Abnett needed to spend time building a new world for them to battle in and establishing the new ideas.
I’m glad I stuck with it and trusted Abnett to deliver a great story. Keep up with News and Reviews in a weekly digest! As a set up for existing fans, it will be a confusing twisty slide around unknown territory with the odd familiar face. Alpharius one of them, at least is kicking around some random planet for the sole purpose of jumping in and saving plot-critical characters. I’ve made no secret of my admiration for Dan Abnett and his Inquisition series in my reviews of previous volumes Eisenhorn and Ravenor: Even Ravenor and his band, who had such a great outing in the first two Ravenor novels, are little more than stuck-up, full-of-themselves, self-righteous bastards here.
His settings are always detailed, with lots of nuance and meanings attached to almost everything. There are certainly some good things.
The only reason I don’t rate it as a 5 stars novel, is that it was kinda of a mess.
This is all compounded by the rumour that the sequelPenitentwill not be out until Decemberwhich is a two-year wait. But she’s a I was excited about this book, because Abntt liked Bequin, and I wanted to see what would happen next for her, Eisenhorn, and Ravenor.
