I would recommend re-reading the Eisenhorn trilogy before reading this. It takes a few pages to get going, and then leads you on some blind chases before getting to the meat of the matter as teams from both Inquisitors seek the services of Bequin, who is what is known as a “blank” who does not react or register to psychic powers.
Pariah was a little slower to get going than some of Abnett’s other works although this did not count against it as a story. Both want her, but for the same reason, but for different ends. The reader gets a sense of who she is from the way she speaks, which I think is crucial in any first-person narrative because it’s so easy to assume that the narrator isn’t telling the truth. Pariahspy and Inquisitorial agent, Alizebeth Patiah is all of these things and yet none paruah them.

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 Aabnett is the first book in a trilogy that pits Dan Abnett’s two most famous characters against each other.
Can’t say what it is, but I’ve gone on to read just about everything else by Mr. Coveted by the Archenemypursued by the Inquisition, Bequin becomes embroiled in a dark plot of abnety she knows not her role or purpose. This bodes well for the next book, considering that things will start building to a head by then. Don’t get me wrong – Dan Abnett is still one of my favorite authors.
RAPID FIRE: Dan Abnett Talks The Magos – Track of Words
The book moves at a quick pace, and has some interesting diversions. It’s impossible not to like The Curst, because in the grim dark future there is no greater quality than loyalty. Putting Eisenhorn and Ravenor on a collision course with each other, in which only one or neither of them may survive, is exciting enough as it is, so why add Chaos Space Marines to the mix? I loved the Eisenhorn and Ravenor trilogies, so I was super pumped for this come out.
But we don’t get enough of those things. This was Bequin, I thought he’d take her out of her coma as the protagonist it seemed like it was an epilogue of the real Bequin’s past, in which she was interestingly enough, Cognitae trained.

Twitter Facebook Like this: It honestly feels as if the main meat of the book is always taking place just out of sight and, much like a certain Deus Ex title, the actual protagonist seems all too superfluous to the actual story. Find more of his reviews and occasional rants here: Beta Bequin is one such person. When the twists come, they come in such a subtle way that you feel your jaw drop when the full impact of what you have just read sinks in.
In this instalment I spoke to Dan Abnett about his latest 40k novel, The Magoswhich is available to order right now. I was hooked from the very beginning. Parah again, all cards on the table I am a big Dan Abnett fan and I was a big supported of both the Eisenhorn and Ravenor series. Problems are further hampered by Bequin herself, who proves to be a rather underwhelming character. Prone to purple prose even more so than many other characters — far past the point of adding colour to the environment — she often seems utterly out of abnety.

This is hardly a problem for me, as I’m very much used to that kind of thing happening in the books I read, but if the reader is coming to Pariah straight from the Eisenhorn and Ravenor books, the might still be too used to the more fast-paced development in those two series and may find that Pariah is not to their taste. Or, at least abnetg might think so. To me that was novel. Nov 02, Ross Hamilton rated it really liked it.
I had great difficulty putting this book down.

She is smart and resourceful, and has been trained to be a perfect inquisition operative. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Raised as an orphan by a strange offshoot of the Inquisitores Ordos.
I really did like though, Teke, the Emperor’s Children marine, he was a fun, memorable villain who seemed to steal every scene he was in, he also kind of made sense pariaj there because of the Eisenhorn’s earlier encounter with the Emperor’s Children traitor legion.
