While this one had it’s share of epic moments, and plenty of funny little dialogues or just those times when you’re just getting really into it ex. I me On-point characterisation of the stifling nature of a faceless bureaucracy, filled with make work involving parsing of nonsense though it turns out that the entire set up had a more insidious purpose. Abnett takes us from world to world in pursuit of a brilliant heritic named Molotch.
Unlike the Eisenhorn books, this is an ensemble cast rather than a single tightly-focused first person POV.
Having ravenot horribly wounded by a previous terrorist attack, he resides inside an armored ‘chair’. I plan to both visit the earlier trilogy and finish this series. The Ravenor books don’t get tangled up in any of that mess, and any Space Marines are kept somewhere in hazy memory and half a rafenor or more away.
Well known for his comic work, he has written everything from the Mr Men to the X-Men.

Ravenor (Novel Series) – Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum
Ravenorunfortunately, isn’t like that. Overall, Ravenor isn’t the most promising beginning for a new series.
Not to say they weren’t interesting, but even something like falling in love with a ridiculously stereotyped and yet still awesome warrior-woman in one case or nearly losing everyone you cared about did not affect the tough and grim band.

The roster of characters in this trilogy actually feel ravenorr people, with all their strengths and weaknesses, and wher I’ve said it before, but rabenor anyone can take the unremittingly grim, guns-and-gore drenched building blocks of the Warhammer 40k world and create something worth reading out of it, it’s Dan Abnett.

It still worked very well for me – I’ll definitely be trying more Dan Abnett books after I wrap up ran series. His worlds live and breathe, his cities have smelly corners where the poor barely survive and the luxurious enclaves of the rich. Ill tempered and heavily armed. Here is the only are where my personal prejudice dings this book. Whatever was left of his body was then deposited into a golden chair made by the adeptus mechanicus so that he can live normally, or at least as normal as rwvenor with the ability to at least move around and communicate.
For about 5 pages. According to the end of dzn last Eisenhorn series book Ravenor continues his work even after the events in the Ravenor series. Oct 24, Martin rated it it was amazing Shelves: The Eisenhorn books are narrated by Eisenhorn himself, and though there are occasional slips into third-person limited perspective when another character other than Eisenhorn is narrating abndtt particular part of the story, those parts are few and far between.
The universe was always shades of abnetg, but this book showed me that some of those shades are a little brighter than I’d believed.
The author does a very good job, and the series mixes detective work, a little bit of horror and space opera action pretty well. Read Eisenhorn, then wipe your tears and read Ravenor.

The biggest hindrance to Ravenor is that the character for whom the book is named, Ravenor, is never actually ‘seen’ by the reader.
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. Well written space opera that will not disappoint if you liked the Eisenhorn Trilogy or just good sci-fi in general.
Zeph Mathuin – Silent ex-bounty hunter. Exciting and interesting view of the more investigative side of the 41st millennium, Ravenor has tons of interesting locations, great characters, and suitably gory 40k action.
As a result, Mr. Inquisitor Gideon Ravenor, a physically crippled, but immensely powerful psyker is send to investigate a warp-tainted narcotic.
Follow him and his retinue as they search the hiveworld of Eustis Majoris for increasingly harder to find information about traders, suppliers and users of these so-called ‘Flects’.
