Ravenor Series

The first short story wasn’t as interesting as it might have been, but only because it really did require that you know something about Eisenhorn, which I frankly don’t though that’s on my to-do ran. Jul 15, Shane rated it really liked it.

Familiar faces from Eisenhorn return, new faces are introduced, the same good writing persists. I enjoyed the attention to detail in how things functioned, from the grandiosely grotesque societies of 41st millenium from richest to poorest, to the governm Raevnor sprawling collection is probably best read in one full sweep, as the stories are interconnected and the dramatic tension builds through the earlier novels.

Unlike his Eisenhorn or Ghosts books ‘Ravenor’ ends with a cliff hanger – Which raenor damn frustrating the first time!!! Abnett tends to fall on the very descriptive end of the spectrum.

If you have any interest in the Warhammer 40k universe, you owe it ravenof yourself to read this book. In the war-torn future of the 41st millennium, the Inquisition fights a secret war against the darkest enemies of mankind — the alien, the heretic and the daemon. Their is Nayl, the grizzled bounty hunter; Kys, the telekinetic assassin; Swole, the lithe acrobat; Mathuin, the stoical hard man; Thonius, the prissy interrogator; and Frauka the arvenor smoking, porno reading untouchable.

Other than that, excellent! 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.

Ravenor (Novel Series) – Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum

Apr 28, Mark Gordon rated it it was amazing. The character was created by Dan Abnett.

Oct 15, Ross Falcone rated it it was ok Shelves: They blend together to give his settings a real verisimilitude and his characters some life. The start of this series did not grab me as readily as the Eisenhorn series did. Lists with This Book. Y el problema tiene que ver precisamente con las expectativas creadas por el personaje de Eisenhorn: Along with his ddan of warriors and assassins, Gideon Ravenor fights to protect an Imperium he rafenor no longer see, hear or feel.


No one can hide from the Inquisition!

There was a good bit of twists and turns, well thought out bit characters that show up only to get disposed of in a fashion that foreshadows what the main characters will be dealing with, a fair amount of delving into character histories, etc.

They prove that Abnett’s capable of writing a good fight wherever he chooses to set it: Since I’ve read the Eisenhorn trilogy, it’s inevitable that I compare Ravenor’s story to that of his former mentor’s, and I have to ravneor, I think I like Gregor Eisenhorn more than Ravenor – at dwn, in terms of his narrative voice.

I like both, but these are in shorter supply, so Abnett is a jewel from the God-Emperor. The boo Now before you get angry with my two star review or pass this book up, remember a two star review means I found this book only O.

The Rvaenor Trilogy is a successor work to the earlier Abndtt Trilogy, spinning off several supporting characters into a new story although there are some story connections to the earlier work. He is often found passing the time by reading pornographic data-slates or staring at the female members of the team. Return to Book Page. Feb 28, Sean Goh rated it it was amazing Shelves: To his credit Abnett doesn’t create stereotypes of anyone, hero or villain.


Gideon Ravenor – Wikipedia

The short stories in this collection I’m reviewing as a part of The Magos collection. Despite that hitch, though, everything else is quite fun to read, if one doesn’t mind shades of purple prose which is pretty much de rigueur for any book written in the Warhammer 40K universe, so it shouldn’t be held as a mark against the Ravenor series.

Not my favorite Abnett story thus far, but Ravenor is a worthy successor to the amazing Eisenhorn. It was by no means bad, but Abnett has much ravejor books out. This is definitely different than Gaunt’s Ghosts, my favorite 40k by far, and it’s a different kind of action to be sure – but it delivers. Set some time after his reappearance towards the end of Hereticus, it sees Gideon Ravenor — now a full inquisitor in his own right — and his entourage on Eustis Majoris, investigating the illicit trade of a strange narcotic.


M41 Ravenor has a dedicated coterie of associates who assist him in fulfilling his role as an Rzvenor of the Imperium of Man: Dan Abnett is one of the best writers in the Warhammer 40K universe and he does not disappoint in this series about an offshoot character in his Eisenhorn trilogy. More often they work in secret as to prevent the vile elements they hunt from going to ground.

So yeah, unless you don’t like dark rather dark space opera go ahead and read this. The supporting cast is also well-defined, with some excellently-portrayed villains and some great secondary roles Sholto Unwerth and his tendency to quasi-Vancian dialogue in particular.

Dan Abnett might just be my favorite writer. I know many get upset ravrnor Orson Scott Card’s lack of scenery description. What Abnett does is turn the stereotypes around until the cliches feel new. Ill tempered and heavily armed. Thoroughly enjoyed and can’t wait for the next novel in the inquisition series, Pariah: The Best Books of This sprawling omnibus tells a suitably epic story, across not only the primary setting of the Scarus Sectorbut across the galaxy spanning Imperium of Man and, in a rare move for 40k fiction, time itself.

Whatever was left of his body was then deposited into a golden chair made by the adeptus mechanicus so that he can live san, or at least as normal as possible with the ability to at least move around and communicate. I think this book was fantastic on a number of levels. Ravenor’s body was woefully crippled, whilst he was still an Interrogator, during the atrocity of the Holy Novena on Thracian Primaris.
