They are deliciously good at what they do, and seeing the main two in action against each other before they team up is a real treat. The rest of the time, however, we simply have to take everyone’s word that he’s so great and, worse still, take everybody’s word that he and Ravenor have some kind of special relationship.

I read Eisenhorn before this I recommend anyone starting WH40k books start there as well and I am just as impressed by Ravenor. I kinda liked Frauka’s developpment from aloof, uncaring, smut reading pariah omnibux smut reading caretaker.
Oddly enough for a 40k story, however, Ravenor has no war in it though that’s not to say no action. I feel, however, that as great all these bits are, the sum of them was less than the individual parts in this case.
The story’s scale is here one of its greatest parts. The first short story wasn’t as interesting as it might have been, but only because it really did require that you know something about Eisenhorn, which I frankly don’t though that’s on my to-do list. Humanity is not a noble race defending itself from enemies, rather it is just as ‘evil’ and flawed and willing to do anything to survive as any other. Failure to do so may result in investigation by the Inquisition.
Junk Disposal and Auctions 1 year ago. I did however feel that half of the 3rd book was a waste of time. An awesome read that revolved around a team which supported an Imperial Inquisitor. Formerly under employment of Inquisitor Eisenhorn. I did not dislike the book, I didn’t stop reading it, but would recommend Eisenhorn Warhammer 40,and only recommend the Ravenor series to those who want to continue what the Eisenhorn books started. It also made sense to have at least one “shunned” pariah in the books considering the off-putting nature of the condition.
Of course, literature it is not, but someone looking for a good story can’t go wrong. The three stories in this omnibus tell the tale of Inquisitor Gideon Ravenor and his lethal band of pmnibus, whose investigations take them from the heart of the Scarus Sector to the wildest regions of space beyond, and even through time itself.
Jan 14, Mick rated it it was amazing Shelves: I was a little fuzzy on exactly what importance many of the schemes and events had in the larger plot. The roster of characters in this trilogy actually feel like people, with all their strengths and weaknesses, and wher I’ve said it before, but if 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, rvaenor Dan Abnett.
He is often found passing the time by reading pornographic data-slates or staring at the female members of the team.
Warhammer 40,Ravenor Omnibus. I know I am late to the party, the Inquisitor novels are old as publication standards go, but after suffering through some pretty crap Black Library novels, when you read the good stuff it is like finding Sting in a pile of rusted shit. The Imperium is vast, and, while the flects are dangerous, they are a localized problem.
Personally, I enjoyed the Eisenhorn collection better, but the Ravenor set is still a good read, albeit a bit slow at times. It wouldn’t make any sense if everyone was fine around him, but I just felt really bad for him.
Harlon Nayl – Ravwnor ex-bounty hunter formerly under employment of Inquisitor Eisenhorn. Eisenhorn on the other hand constantly improves his skill, knowledge and gear throughout the books and ends up being an absolute badass half crazy but still badass even though or maybe because he is not super powerful from the start. The prose, I’ll come back to. I started in the last part of the first book because I thought that was where I left off during my last attempt.
May omniubs, K. He almost wins over Patience by making her understand how the Pariah gene affects ragenor around him, but by then it was too little, too late.
When reading at the pulpier end of the Science Fiction spectrum, it’s rvenor fair to expect mediocre prose glossed over by a rip-roaring plot. In the wake of Ravenor’s investigation to uncover the source of the flects, Zael gets taken along for being able to “hear” the telepathic communication between Ravenor and Nayl.
He is an amazing writer.
Maybe Molotch is established and developed there. 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.
