Tajas The main character would be familiar to readers of those series — Alizebeth Bequin. Then I truly feel sorry for you. This foe was once his greatest ally and most trusted friend: Add to that another aspect of the novel I did not like at all: Seriousy, buy Pariah, read Pariah, love Pariah. Read Pariah last year with only having read the Ravenor omnibus.

Dan Abnett is the best Black Library author. Shadowhawk reviews the latest Inquisition novel from Dan Abnett. In the battle of expectations versus reality, its my expectations that got bombed to hell. His novels with Inquisitors Gregor Eisenhorn and Gideon Ravenor are some of my favourites in all of Warhammer 40, and were my early reads as well.
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.
Far too much actually. From the beginning of the novel, through to the meat of it, and all the way to the climax, Pariah was one disappointment after another. I listened to the audiobook last year, and, to be frank, I consider that time wasted. The audiobook was an easier experience than the novel, but it failed to capture me at all.
It is extremely rare for me to not finish a Black Library book, and Prospero Burns has that dubious honour, right alongside Eldar Prophecy by C. Dan Abnett can be said to be a master of world-building. His settings are always detailed, with lots of nuance and meanings attached to almost everything. That is, the more civilian side of the setting which is all about hive-world politics, Inquisitorial intrigues, local police forces, and so on.
In Pariah he takes it all to an extreme. I had a tough time coming to grips with this, to the extent that I was wondering if I was even reading a Warhammer 40, novel!
