His settings are always detailed, with lots of nuance and meanings attached to almost everything. Throughout the Ravenor trilogy, she remained comatose in a stasis tube. Pariah is the first book in the Bequin trilogy, Abnett’s conclusion to his Eisenhorn and Ravenor trilogies, and like those two trilogies is set in the Warhammer K universe.
Dan Abnett can be said to be a master of world-building. But she’s a I was excited about this book, because I liked Bequin, and I wanted to see what would happen next for her, Eisenhorn, and Ravenor.

No trivia or quizzes yet.
This is the first chapter of a trilogy, and it feels like it. Felt a bit more stretched as an introductory book, but interesting on how it will develop. This is a good look at the different aspects of training for the Inquisition. Though I stand by the points that I made, they could have been abnet with a much greater amount of decorum, and therefore apologise both to Shadowhawk himself and to the owners and other staff of TFF.
