While the sequel Ravenor was a bit weaker it’s still one of my favorites, so after several years I was really psyked for Ravenor vs Eisenhorn. First off just a warning out front, this a book about Beta Bequin, a psychic ‘untouchable’ trained as an Inquisition operative who discovers everything she knows is a lie.
The guys on the cover – Ravenor and Eisenhorn barely show up, not really playing a role until the final act. But Beta’s story is well-told, she’s a developed character, written as intelligent and clever and her story moves along quickly. The city of Queen Mab is another great setting and given tons of character by Abnett. So although the plot feels thin and the stars are MIA for most of the book it’s a good read and made me hungry for more.
After reading the book, I get two opinions about the book depending on whether or not one has read his other two previous trilogies: Since I have read the other trilogies, I felt the book read like a fast paced, action movie full of twists and turns, each dealing with the introduction of a new faction vying for supremacy at the cost of other competing factions warning: If I hadn’t read the Inquisitor trilogies, this “Pariah” book would have read like an Alfred Bester novel: The book is written like an introductory scene to a play: I look forward to his next novel 2 years!
I then immediately got gaunt’s ghosts and plowed through them.
Dan Abnett became one of my favorite authors. Then I found the Ravenor series I tried several times to read through the series, I’d force myself to finish the first book and get about a third or halfway through the second and completely lose interest.
Something just didn’t click with the character, stories and supporting cast. Can’t say what it is, but I’ve gone on to read just about everything else by Mr.
RAPID FIRE: Dan Abnett Talks The Magos
Abnett, the only other book that comes close to this reaction is Triumph. I had written all these books off, and was swearing to just stick to Gaunt’s novels.
Don’t get me wrong – Dan Abnett is still one of my favorite authors. I’m hopeful that I enjoy this series as much as I did the first book. Off to reread Eisenhorn and I am tempted to try Ravenor again!! Of all the multifarious properties that Mr. Abnett writes, this is the one I most fervently hope he returns to and completes. This is one of the few books that has ever made me exclaim aloud after reading a particularly mind-blowing passage. I cannot wait for the follow-up and conclusion to this series.
I had great difficulty putting this book down. Written in a first person view from Beta herself, this novel moves much faster with better fight scenes than previous Abnett novels.
This is the first Abnett book I’ve read that ends in a cliff hanger rather than closing a smaller conflict while building an underlying one think each omnibus with his name on it. There’s not much I can say about this book without giving away some plot twists. Abnett does a great job of making you just as confused as as his characters throughout this entire book, introducing you to your regular cast from Eisenhorn and Ravenor without ever letting you know you were introduced to them, while bringing in some new cast members.
One person found this helpful. A must-have for anyone who’s been enthralled by the previous exploits of Inquisitors Eisenhorn and Ravenor. If you’ve read those books, then bless Dan Abnett for continuing that storyline and run–don’t walk–to your cart and buy this novel.
You will not be disappointed. Reading this novel was more fun than going to the movies. Abnett is remarkably prolific, yet it seems to me–having read much of his non-Inquisitor material–that he saves a very special verve for these characters, that his Ravenor and Eisenhorn novels stand above the rest of his oeuvre in terms of construction, detail, intricacy, and idiosyncrasy.
It isn’t military SF, yet the battles are all the more thrilling because we’ve known some of its fighters for so long. No spoilers here, but don’t expect this book to be the cage match that the title implies. Perhaps later in the series. Abnett gives us not what we want, but what we need. There is plenty of action, as well as the introduction of some new characters to the Inquisitorial mythos Abnett has so painstakingly created.
If you’re new to this story cycle, you won’t be lost. The book flows seamlessly and won’t leave you floundering; everything is explained well enough for newbies to have enough traction. But if you haven’t read the previous two trilogies–both the Eisenhorn and the Ravenor omnibuses–what are you waiting for?
They’re glorious and original, and set the stage for this new trilogy beautifully. I have only one problem with this novel: See all 65 reviews. There’s a problem loading this menu right now. Learn more about Amazon Prime. Get fast, free shipping with Amazon Prime. Get to Know Us.
