This could have been exploited more to show his evolving detachment but the book opens with him already in that state. The first short story wasn’t as interesting as it might have been, but only because it really did require that you know something about Eisenhorn, which I frankly don’t though that’s on my to-do list.
Ravenor tiene lo que debe de tener. There are so odd or over the top bits as always with the black librarybut the action flowed well and the plot was interesting to read.
I enjoyed the attention to detail in how things functioned, from the grandiosely grotesque societies of 41st millenium from richest to poorest, to the governm This sprawling collection is probably best read in one full sweep, as the stories are interconnected and the dramatic tension builds through the earlier novels.
As a novel collection, though, I think it’s quite excellent and, by the end, a worthy continuation of Abnett’s chunk of the 40K universe. And the story does tie in nicely with the events which follow after.
I feel, however, that as great all these bits are, the sum of them was ravenr than the individual parts in this case. Aliens, cultists, psykers and a deamon called Slyte, the odds of survival are so slim it’s not even funny, and what’s worse is they’re going to have to do it all alone, without any support from the Inquisitorial Ordos.
And my Limited Edition copy of Magos the 4th Eisenhorn book is on gavenor way. Jan 11, Sven Mysterioso rated it it was amazing. Feb 06, Tripp Moultrie rated it really liked it.
The Hinterlight is equipped with a custom-built stealth device made partly with alien technology, partly powered by Ravenor’s own considerable psychic powers. High watermarks for me include Michael A. The author does a very good job, and the series mixes detective work, a little bit of horror and space opera action pretty well. The story is a little less doom-and-gloom than your standard 40k novel, preferring instead to lean towards the “Lasers and Feelings” counterpart to the “Sword and Sorcery”Fantasy subgenre subgenre.
I’m not sure why so many people raved about this. On-point characterisation of the stifling nature of a faceless bureaucracy, filled with make work involving parsing of nonsense though it turns out that the entire set up had a more insidious purpose. I enjoyed the attention to detail in how things functioned, from the grandiosely grotesque societies of 41st millenium from richest to poorest, to the governments running their lives, and to the powers that try to control those governments. Even though the three main Ravenor books are separated by short stories, it’s not jarring to have those pauses.
Ravenor takes place in the Warhammer 40k universe which is easily one of the greatest examples of lore-creation in the greater Sci-Fi and Fantasy genres.
Anyone familiar with the Warhammer 40k universe is also familiar with its often gruesome nature. They’re skilled professionals of the highest calibre, and Dan takes time to make each of them distinctive. It worked for a couple of times, but there is a key moment where the previous usage took away from the drama which the author clearly intended to orchestrate at a critical juncture late in the book.
Now, I had a choice here: Description In the war-torn future of davenor 41st millennium, the Inquisition fights a secret war against the darkest enemies of mankind – the alien, the heretic and the daemon. If davenor can, pick your jaw up and dive into the new ones.
Speaking of heresy, there’s something about the all-powerful inquisition and its agents of the throne that draws readers in. I am interested to see who abneyt be my favorite Inquisitor about finishing this series.
Ravenor: The Omnibus by Dan Abnett
Seriously, the Inquisitor trilogies are awesome, do yourself a favor Ravenor is a crippled member of the Imperial Inquisition and a powerful psycher.
Oct 14, Doomsnake Nestrobber rated it it was amazing. As I mentioned earlier, Ravenor is a powerful psyker, and that power isn’t used just for making things levitate and pushing himself around in his force chair: One of the things I like best about the 40k universe is that it’s so very different from most science fiction settings.
Dan Abnett is particularly adept at weaving these two approaches into a compelling narrative.
