What makes Ravenor special is not only the clever ideas that Dan Abnett puts into this far-future, dark dystopian universe, but masterful writing conceits, as well. This omnibus is comprised of 3 books and 2 short stories: Ravenor however was more preoccupied with his own physical disability which well, added depth to his character but did not contribute much to the excitement of the story.

Gideon Ravenor – Wikipedia

The main reason I found this book only ok is because of our main character Ravenor. Overall the book is thoroughly interesting and contains enough development for the characters to keep a reader reading for hours straight.

I found myself skimming the page and a half setting description almost every chapter. I got this book to read about an inquisitor, not his support staff.

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.

Jul 18, Ding Ong rated it really liked it Shelves: Carries a vast array of weapons. This needs some major plot devices to be workable over three novels and more: But as I said, read Eisenhorn first.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. By all rights, he should be dead, but his psyker powers and hatred sustained him long enough for Martian tech priests to entomb him in a mobile coffin.

Maybe I just missed a few pieces of information, and no one else feels that things were a little loose for the first half or more. A typical Dan Abnett masterpiece. The short stories in this collection I’m reviewing as a part of The Magos collection. While not as constant or quite as visceral as the more war-oriented novels, Ravenor still has its moments. I like both, but these are in shor Not my favorite Abnett story thus far, but Ravenor is a worthy successor to the amazing Eisenhorn.

Ravenor Series

Due to some freak accident caused by an alpha plus psyker left Gideon Ravenor steps away form the gates of hell while his body was melted into a nasty ruin.

My friend Ravejor who got me into Warhammer 40K in the first place has reassured me that the Ravenor series is really slow to start, and as someone who’s read more than a few series that are slow to start, I can live with that, so I’ll let this particular aspect slide as long as the other books in the series can deliver. The title is a reference to Eisenhorn’s code language, Glossia.

I will say that, while I liked it, I did not love it. Ravenor and his team of experienced agents are out of their depth and they don’t even know it.

The same sort of atmosphere and hallmarks of the Eisenhorn series are present, but they are definitely different. Jun 28, James rated it it was amazing.

Ravenor Series by Dan Abnett

Ravenor’s latest case leads him and his team to Eustis Majoris, capital world of subsector Angelus, on the trail of ‘flects’, a new drug that induce Inquisitor Gideon Ravenor is one of the finest agents in the Inquisition, the former protege of the infamous and now missing Gregor Eisenhorn.


Seriously e Fantastic stand alone series of stories set in the Warhammer 40k universe. I consider Dan Abnett’s previous Inquisition trilogy, collected as the Eisenhorn omnibus, to be among the best examples not just of fiction set within the worlds of Games Workshop’s Warhammer and Warhammer 40k universes, but of the tie-in fiction of any setting.

The roster of characters in this trilogy actually feel like people, with all their strengths and weaknesses, and whereas I’ve seen some reviews that have bemoaned the slower sections, that mix of pace is actually to the story’s benefit. I’m not actually sure I ever finished this omnibus originally.

Dan Abnett is particularly adept at weaving these two approaches into a compelling narrative. Badly wounded in the catastrophe on Thracian Primaris, Ravnor is restricted to a life-support chair but his formidable psi-powers remain undimmed and his allies and agents are among the best in their fields. Most 40k books I’ve come across have been stories rvaenor one dimensional warriors with huge guns fighting endless battles, but Abnett inserts two things often missing, plots and characters.

So what did grab me? It’s part of the reason why he doesn’t regret the loss of his body much: The character was abmett by Dan Abnett. There’s a definately a Sherlock Moriarty vibe going on, but it’s so well done I didn’t mind a bit. Along the way, the writing offers delightful little tidbits. Fantastic stand alone series of stories set in the Warhammer 40k universe.
