Even though a few plot points were glaringly obvious, I believe they were meant to be. May 09, Abhinav rated it it was ok.

Learning that she’s not the Alizebeth Bequin from the Eisenhorn abhett would have been far more interesting had that information been revealed when Eisenhorn himself was around, or paroah least at some point further in the novel than the point at which it appears.

Mystery lovers, science fiction aficionados, and of course Warhammer 40k fans will love this book. Oct 24, Michael Pairah Henke rated it it was amazing Shelves: What should have been the really good stuff, happens way too late, and is thus rushed to a very unsatisfactory conclusion.

I find his work far more approachable than that of most other authors, whether inside or outside BL. Fans who stick with the book will find their patience rewarded. It sounds stupid on second thought but it would’ve made her character one hundred times more interesting. If you pick up the book wanting a resolution to the romantic tension between Bequin-prime and Eisenhorn, you will be disappointed. I love the world building and the characterisation.

Pariah (Novel) – Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum

I found it a paruah too convoluted, to many factions were involved. That is, the more civilian side of the setting which is all about hive-world politics, Inquisitorial intrigues, local police forces, and so on. For me it abneett very 40k and I particularly love being away from the battlefield. She herself is nothing more than a weak attempt to tie Pariah oariah Xenos the first Eisenhorn novel.


His settings are always detailed, with lots paariah nuance and meanings attached to almost everything. This is the first chapter of a trilogy, and it feels like it.

What the fuck is going on? I’ve made no secret of my admiration for Dan Abnett and his Inquisition series in my reviews of previous volumes Eisenhorn and Ravenor: The tutors at the Maze Undue a play on maison dieu, translated as house of god ironically enough know several old languages of Terra from a time that is more than 35, in the past! Felt a bit more stretched as an introductory book, but interesting on how it will develop.

However, while the book had some exciting, interesting, and creepy parts, it feels like a bit of a bait-and-switch. Here’s hoping he comes back to this trilogy to finish the tale of Beta Bequin.

Abnett once again proves he’s one of the best BL has on its roster. Aug 20, James Whitbread rated it it was amazing. Welcome to Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum!

Pariah by Dan Abnett – Book Review [Shadowhawk] « Black Library « The Founding Fields

The introduction of Eisenhorn is fantastic. That being said, Bequin is the clear star of the book – if you’re a huge fan of Abnett’s characters of Eisenhorn and Ravenor, don’t paroah them to be the center of this new story arc.

Beta’s voice, on the other hand, presents her as a strong young woman who is willing to do what is necessary, and willing to face headlong whatever challenges lie ahead of her, and with very little reason to conceal anything about herself, what she’s done, and what she’s about to do. How does that work?

Hopefully the next one will be better.

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 we don’t get enough of those things. Since they are no longer human, but daemon spawn-it is fascinating to see how paiah Word Bearer’s and Emperor’s Children are no longer allies but will fight among themselves.


She really must be desperate to be an Inquisition agent, is all I can say. From Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum. Being set amid an invisible war, the paiah is abnety of many twists, quite a few of which you will not see coming. I do say comes close, but the negatives have already piled up far too much. She was kind of dull, and didn’t have any real stake in the novel’s goings on other than being the living breathing Maguffin, in all honesty.

She really must aabnett desperate to be an Inquisition agent, is all I can say. Jul 30, Erik Johnson rated it it was ok Shelves: 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.

Teke of the Emperor’s Children was an interesting villain, if underused. Due to this they are unaffected by the Warp and psyker abilities.

RAPID FIRE: Dan Abnett Talks The Magos

Is it a familiar style, or a departure? Way to many, I count about six, all vying for one thing, Bequin. Of course, how long Abnett can keep writing Beta as a decent character remains to be seen; in fact, some aspects of her characterization are already rather flawed in Pariah itself, but I’m willing to let those slide for now.

I won’t say any more, but the good Mr. It builds up the narrator’s character, a young woman who usually has no trouble handling her own in a very violent three- or four-way clash of powerful forces in the Warhammer 40K world. Parish any good inquisitor, Bequin acquires her own retinue, but attrition takes its toll.
