They wish to recruit or kidnap Beta because she might lead them to a sacred “word of power”.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. But it also stands up on its own for new readers. The audiobook was an easier experience than the novel, but it failed to capture me at all.

Hardcoverabnftt. I love the world building and the characterisation. Normally Dan Abnett novels have me burning through their pages because I need to know what happens next.

RAPID FIRE: Dan Abnett Talks The Magos

The book repeatedly shows you a familiar character through Bequin’s eyes, because she’s never seen them before, so that you get the excitement of recognizing them. Some of the twists can be good, and some of the twists, while not bad, are poorly-placed. This is hardly a problem for me, as I’m very much used to that kind of thing happening in the books I read, but if the reader is coming to Pariah straight from the Eisenhorn and Ravenor books, the might still be too used to the more fast-paced sbnett in those two series and may find pxriah Pariah is not to their taste.

May 21, Lemuel CyroN Salubo rated it really liked it.

Pariah by Dan Abnett

Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Welcome to this instalment of Rapid Firemy ongoing series of quick interviews with Black Library authors talking about their new pariau. Jun 06, Aleksi rated it it was amazing. Ravenor’, the two hardly appear, and don’t explain much.


A well written, action packed, highly entertaining mess but still a mess. Twists just for the sake of them aren’t any fun at all, and I hate pointless twists almost as much as I love a good, appropriate one. I actually rather loved Angel of Fire and consider it one of my favorites in Woven throughout the core narrative, we see each tier of its social structure, powers and examples of its history built up chapter by chapter.

But will he stay with Bequin after his task is complete? Alas, the times we are in. To reiterate with emphasis: He put the war in warhammer in a very creative way by showing us life behind the frontlines of grand battles between two opposing armies.

Retrieved from ” http: Uhh rant rant rant. She herself is nothing more than a weak attempt to tie Pariah to Xenos the first Eisenhorn novel. Alizebeth Bequin is dead, and she’s not coming back; Beta’s her clone, and she’s the one who’s around now, so deal with it.

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. Dan Abnett can be said to be a master of world-building. Probably, because he and I have both aged. I enjoyed it greatly, and of course, promptly went out later to purchase the entire Ravenor trilogy and read that as well.

As a set up for existing fans, it will be a confusing twisty slide around unknown territory with the odd familiar face. All the characters were alright, most of them forgettable, like the Blackwards?

RAPID FIRE: Dan Abnett Talks The Magos – Track of Words

I found it a little too convoluted, to many factions were involved. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. I am a big fan of the Warhammer 40K series of novels. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. For people new to the series but fans of 40k, it may just seem a glorious mess with far too many players. She’s constantly put in peril, then rescued by yet another faction, then lost to another faction, then imperiled, repeat, etc.


It’s fun, but it’s a flash in the pan, and by the end of it you wish there was some food in the pan instead. In the Banett Undue, the training facility for the Ordos, Beta and her classmates are taught the intricacies of being a top level field operative. In fact, he paria to do even world-building since his characters are all new! If you pick up this book and read it as the beginning of a third series that features familiar characters you will enjoy it immensely.

It takes a few pages to get going, and then leads you on some blind chases before getting to the meat of the matter as teams from both Inquisitors seek the services of Bequin, who is what is known as a “blank” who does not react or register to psychic powers. Far too much actually. Otherwise, if you love 40k and want something different to the normal bolterporn then Lariah would recommend this book! I also didn’t really like how it ended in a cliff hanger, it wasn’t really a cliff hanger though.

Aug 20, James Whitbread rated it it was amazing. Her inclusion also rings alarm bells, given that her… family was pretty much purged already.

There is Gideon Ravenor! I think I’ve found my new favourite Warhammer 40k book.
