RAPID FIRE: Dan Abnett Talks The Magos
Again, I don’t care, partly because Beta is a decent character, and partly because it’s high time a woman took the stage in this series, especially after what Abnett did to Patience and Kara in the last Ravenor book. All the characters were alright, most of them forgettable, like the Blackwards?
Holding places of power in the most obscure worlds, it operates and trains its warriors in plain sight, waging its wars among an unknowing populace. A Pariah is a psyker that has no soul. Abnett writes, this is the one I most fervently hope he returns to and completes.
I found it a bit forgettable over all not great but not bad either. Life continues as normal among the world, as she is taught to fight, hunt and slay heretics, until mysterious visitors begin to appear among the academy.
A must-have for anyone who’s been enthralled by the previous exploits of Inquisitors Eisenhorn and Ravenor.
May 21, Mick rated it it was amazing Shelves: Want to Read saving…. It sounds stupid on second thought but it would’ve made her character one hundred times more interesting.
Thus a very interesting and different look at the Warhammer 40k world. They wish to recruit or kidnap Beta because she might lead them to a sacred “word of power”. When the school is raided by forces unknown Beta is forced out onto the streets, and is forced to rely on her skill and wits not just to survive but to uncover the secrets behind her own existence.
This is the first chapter of a trilogy, and it feels like it. A well written, action packed, highly entertaining mess but still a mess. I enjoyed it greatly, and of course, promptly went out later to purchase the entire Ravenor trilogy and read that as well.
I was starting to feel slightly disappointed and then I started chapter eleven. Simple answer — yes! I also found the concept of “eudaemonic” research to be interesting. But i did at the end and now i want the next book Please try again later.
Abnett once again proves he’s one of the best BL has on its roster. Learning that she’s not the Alizebeth Bequin from the Eisenhorn trilogy would have been far more interesting had that information been revealed when Eisenhorn himself was around, or at least at some point further in the novel than the point at which it appears.
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.
Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. But we don’t get enough of those things. As I read, I had a curious sense of while knowing it was a Warhammer 40, novel, there was at the same time more of a fantasy feel.
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 daan recognizing them. Not to mention two great Inquisitors Ravenor and Eisenhorn are working at cross purposes for the same goal. Something not helped by the addition of a Cold Ppariah rocket oariah one point. Finally, Abnett’s unusual view of the 40k universe, abnetg I sometimes like, really bugs me here instead.
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. This isn’t for you. I put off reading this book for a long time, so I forgotten a lot of what happened to Eisenhorn. All of who are very interested in Bequin, and the enigma behind her very existence…. Powered by WordPress Designed by: Alizebeth Bequin, and others from her academy, are able to mechanically switch from ‘live’ to ‘dead.
Refresh and try again. One in particular, a rather famous enemy from Xenos, emerges long after they should have in all rights been soundly beaten. The book is written like an introductory scene to a play: They are 2 very different things. This is a good look at the different aspects of training for the Inquisition. In any case, a lot of other reviewers appear to be disappointed by the fact that she isn’t the original Bequin. Personal tools Log in Request account. I tried several aabnett to read through adn series, I’d force myself to finish the first book and get about a third or halfway through the second and completely lose interest.
I’m hopeful that I enjoy this series as much as I did the first book.
Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1. Nothing new, corny as hell, but it actually works OK within the story. Preview — Pariah abnegt Dan Abnett. The ultimate test for me is do I want to read more. 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.
RAPID FIRE: Dan Abnett Talks The Magos – Track of Words
I’m rather a abmett fan than a Dan Abnett fan, although I consider him as one of my three favorite 40K writers. Then, as I wrote, it got longer and longer… first a novella…. Woven throughout the core narrative, we see each tier of its social structure, powers and examples of its history built up chapter by chapter. However, all is not as it seems, and Beta slowly comes to realize that something far darker, and far more dangerous, is afoot – and that everything she always believed to be truth, might in fact not be quite what she thought it to be.
Can’t say what it is, but I’ve gone on to read just about everything else by Mr.
