The author does a very good job, and the series mixes detective work, a little bit of horror and space opera action pretty well. I didn’t really like the way the Zael fell away as a character, but it ultimately worked out so I’m good with it.

And you know what they rushed to the medics? The main problem is that it seems such a disappintment when compared to Eisenhorn, which I loved. I won’t spoil the ending but it doesn’t abett a great leap to imagine how it goes. You really want to know about these characters and their world.

I’d come to know his crew, to be sure, and to know something of the enemies he faced and will face further down the line, but the ean himself continues to be something of a mystery.

Armada Eternal Crusade Space Hulk: Instead, they, like the Eisenhorn trilogy that precedes them, focus on another prominent faction of the Warhammer 40K universe: He works around this problem while keeping a little Eisenhorn flavor in Ravenor by presenting every character’s viewpoint as third-person with the exception of Ravenor himself who is presented in the first-person.


I got this book to read about an inquisitor, not his support staff.

Although in Ravenor it is mentioned that Ravenors force chair amplifies his already formidable powers. There are strong interesting locations. This may or may not have been intentional, but I, for my part, wish that Abnett had given his own main protagonist more airtime, just so the reader can really, truly get attached to him and care about what happens to him further down the line.

However, as the story unfolds it becomes clear that this is only scraping the surface of a plot that could bring down the Imperium as well as destabilis The Ravenor Trilogy begins some 15 years after the events of ‘Hereticus’ and the finale of Dan Abnett’s Eisenhorn Trilogy. Most van books I’ve come across have been stories of one dimensional warriors with huge guns fighting endless battles, but Abnett inserts two things often missing, plots and characters.

Not that Ravenor’s retinue needs much help. Y el problema tiene que ver precisamente con las expectativas creadas por el personaje de Eisenhorn: With the exceptions of Kara Swole and Ravenor himself, most of his team didn’t grow nor change throughout the series.

Well worth the read. Published March 29th abnstt Games Workshop uk first published The characters from Eisenhorn would have more depth compared to Ravenor, partly cause the histories rzvenor the characters from Eisenhorn were more explored.

As a result Abnett has more time to develop the stories, characters and the background setting in this case the pollution-wrecked hive world of Eustis Majorisachieving a deeper and more resonant story than in any of his previous works although the accumulative narrative drive of the twelve Gaunt’s Ghosts novels is impressive. So what did grab me? My only issue with Ravenor, and Abneett think I had the same complaint with Eisenhorn, was the ending.


I am a rat. Unlike his previous trilogy, this series is told from a multitude of perspectives. Lists with This Book.

Kara Swole – A former dancer-acrobat, trained in the use of deadly weapons. The first short story wasn’t as interesting as it might have been, but ravwnor because it really did require that you k I think this book was fantastic on a number of levels.

Ravenor: The Omnibus

But I wasn’t really up to that kind of science fiction. Personally, I enjoyed the Eisenhorn collection better, but the Ravenor set is still a good rabenor, albeit a bit slow at times.

That was the big turn off for me. Nov 27, Taddow rated it it was amazing Shelves: The main reason I found this book only ok is because of our main character Ravenor.

The three stories in this omnibus tell the tale of Inquisitor Gideon Ravenor and his lethal band of operatives, whose investigations take them from the heart of adn Scarus Sector to the wildest regions of space beyond, and even through time itself. This one would probably deserve a 4 and a half, like alot of books by this guy. On the 40k side of things, I loved this book because my experience with the setting has been limited to the miniatures game and a little of the RTS game that came out a few years ago.

Unwerth was the exact opposite: I plan to both visit the earlier trilogy and finish this series. Ravenor may be trapped within his body, but his mind is free to go wherever it pleases, which is handy from an Inquisitor looking to route out corruption. Under normal circumstances, Ravenor would be forced to retire from his job.
