The End and the Death: Volume I (Volume 8) [Hardcover] Abnett, Dan [Hardcover] Abnett, Dan
About this deal
Still book is great and if you liked the ones before you will enjoy it. Characters are awsome, story is very solid. I have to point out the superior writing technics Abnett uses. He proves himself again and again as god tier author. There is one scene, I dare to say rival Edgar Alan Poe. As with all the other entries in this series Jonathan Keeble has been consistent, flexible and clever with his delivery.
WarCom: Did you ever imagine while writing that first book that we would be here now with over 60 novels? It wouldn't surprise me to see some form of physical confrontation between the members of the motley crew surrounding the Pepetuals to cull some of them off early in book 8. There have been tensions between JG and OP for some time now - perhaps these will boil over resulting in (presumably) JG getting eliminated.It was at its most prominent in Malcador''s scenes, but was absolutely in other parts of the book. The word I quoted smaragdine occurs with a minor character called Acastia, she then goes on to face a colubrine shape which has tentacles tipped with bone harpagons.
Another bloated entry in the Siege of Terra series, featuring ADHD storytelling, glacial pacing and a meandering plot. Ollianius Pius knows Enuncia and has the toughness to sustain its power more than a few seconds. That is how Olly weakens Horus enough for Neoth to finish him off The person on the Throne is defenseless so a single Daemon can destroy the throne and give Horus his victory
Starts off promising. Hope it stays like this. Not many books handle the details of Terra! so I'm really looking forward to it. But he does a great job and gives the right feeling already for fans of the whole 40k books in the start. First of all Jonathan Keeble does a great job bringing (so many) characters to life and capturing the mood and pace of the varied scenes.
