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.

All that ends on a stunning night of attack. However, Beta’s adventures in Queen Mab – a well-realised city which demonstrates Abnett’s skill for creating pockets of humanity in a abbnett universe – are thrilling, and viewing the 41st millennium through the eyes of a terrified – albeit highly competent – girl makes the story much more personal.

Our primary protagonist is Alizebeth “Beta” Bequin, a skilled infiltrator and anti-psychic assassin raised in a mysterious school in the dystopian city of Queen Mab. I found it a bit forgettable over all not great dna not bad either. It just went exponentially uphill from there.

Retrieved from ” http: The city of Queen Mab is another great setting and ran tons of character by Abnett. Do you have plans to continue any aspects of this story, or is it a standalone piece? This isn’t for you. 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.

Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. I was excited about this book, because I liked Bequin, and I wanted to see what would happen next for her, Eisenhorn, and Ravenor. The school is heretical, and yet Eisenhorn and Ravenor seem to have been content to leave new-Bequin there for decades. The ultimate test for me is do I want to read more.

Don’t get me wrong – Dan Abnett is still one of my favorite authors. One person found this helpful. The start of the story confused me, I think Dan did that on purpose, but it was just frustrating.

I wish i had! To get the full impact, it would probably help to have read the original Eisenhorn trilogy. Ravenor’, the two hardly appear, and don’t explain much. Abnett should consider branching into the horror genre with that quality of work.

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

For people new to the series but fans of 40k, it may just seem a glorious mess with far too many players. In any case, a lot of other reviewers appear to be disappointed by the fact that she isn’t the original Bequin. I, for one, don’t care, since Beta isn’t half-bad as a character in her own right pending further developments in the two remaining novels, of courseplus I appreciate that Abnett makes sure that when a character is dead barring any interference from external forcesthey stay dead.

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. Jan 07, Kam rated it really liked it Shelves: Twitter Facebook Like this: Again, this did not count against the story and probably suited the protagonist and her background. It really just depends on how the technique is used: Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty.


In my review for Patrick Rothfuss’s The Name of the Wind I mentioned that it was quite clear from Kvothe’s narration that he wasn’t telling the whole truth, and Rothfuss certainly implies the reader must not take everything he says at face value via Kvothe’s own narrative voice. The Magos Eisenhorn Paperback. Read Pariah last year with only having read the Ravenor omnibus. 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!

She is too accomplished, too sure of herself, too unquestioning of events as they happen around her, too trusting of people.

As for the ending, well that had me grinning from ear to ear and yanking at my hair for more. 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.

Pariah is the first book in the Bequin trilogy, Abnett’s conclusion to his Eisenhorn and Ravenor trilogies, and like those two trilogies is set in the Warhammer K universe.
