At he end of the day, "Atlas Infernal" is an increasingly frustrating read.The premise and story are good, with the potential to be excellent. All the makings of an amazing adventure are there: the right setting, the right characters, the right circumstancesUnfortunately, the writing is where the book fails, feeling often clumsy and contrived. There are even some instances when you can plainly picture the author sifting through a thesaurus whilst looking for fancy sounding word to insert, even w [...]
OK, I admit it. My guilty little literary secret is my love for books where blokes with big guns blast aliens into pools of green slime. And there's no better universe for blasting aliens than the Warhammer 40k one: orcs, tyrannids (think Alien but hordes of them), the Tau (sort of like the Borg), necrons (metal zombies), Chaos (basically Michael Moorcock's demons from the Elric era of his writing transplanted into outer space). And, of course, the eldar - basically elves in space but with spiky [...]
I've recently started to really pursue Inquisition stories. Bronislaw Czevak is a High Inquisitor of the Ordo Xenos in possession of a very overdue book from the Black Library. He is pursued by both Harlequins and Ahzek Ahriman, since they all want to capture him and use him for their own purposes.The story is not told in a linear fashion, which was confusing, and there's some of the physical harm to female characters that is unfortunately typical of 40k novels. (E.g Grey Knights murdering Siste [...]
This book is pure pulp (this is a compliment, one of my highest). Just look at these words.The Path Incarnadine, a haemovore death cult that single handedly defended the Carfax Hive on the cardinal world of Aspiratyne from the predations of the dark eldar Fell Witch and her World-Scourgers.Yes, it’s goofy. But they take place in a goofy world. Because, after all, Atlas Infernal is a Warhammer 40,000 novel, a novel that takes place in a grim future where there is only war. Where the forces of t [...]
‘Minions of the Great Enemy will do aught to survive on this corporal plane. Purge this Inquisition fortress of the unholy and abominate in the God-Emperor’s name. Destroy the interlopers. Suffer not the immaterial to exist.’Filled with radical inquisition shenanigans to the brim. Great exposition, packed with action and some interesting characters. 3.0 stars as even though I liked the book, it had some elements towards the end of the book that I did not enjoy too much. Full breakdown of m [...]
Have you ever had a book that you are excited to read because the subject matter is just so cool that the book HAS to be good?This was one of those books for me.The inquisitor who saw the inside of the black library and spars with one of the main bad guys in 40K mythos.Lets start with the blurb.Inquisitor Bronislaw Czevak is a hunted man.Actually Inquisitor Bronislaw Czevak is a pain in the ass bumbling accident prone idiot. The book has so many flashbacks, flash forwards and pace changes that i [...]
I believe this may be the most bonkers W40k book I've ever read, which is no small feat. It's tough to describe the plot since it zags all over the place, but the basic jist is that there's a grumpy old Inquisitor who's stolen a (creepy) living map of the Eldar Webway, pursued by mean old Ahriman of the Thousand Sons. This is just the launching point to a truly bizarre adventure that takes our heroes through the Eye of Terror. I found this quite enjoyable, and in fact my only gripe is that Sande [...]
A thoroughly enjoyable look at an iconic figure in Warhammer 40K lore. The cat and mouse game between Inquisitor Czevak, Ahriman of the Thousand Sons and Eldar Harlequin makes for a fascinating read. It's also a rare look into life inside the Eye of Terror. Overall I thought it was very well done and highly enjoyable. Not loaded with shooty death kill as many Black Library books are (though that's not a bad thing)it's still got plenty of action. The way the book was written-reflecting the timele [...]
I wanted to give it 5 stars, but sadly couldn't. I've been intrigued by the story of Inquisitor Czevak since the first mention of his existence years ago - the only named human to have been to the Black Library of the Eldar, now hunted by Ahriman in a galactic game of cat-and-mouse with some of the most epic stakes possible; how could that not be enticing?Sadly, though, it felt a little too disjointed to give it a 5-star rating. I understand what the author was trying to do, but it fell a bit fl [...]
I really enjoyed this book--that's 2 in a row from recent BL publishing! (A nice change from their previous swing-and-a-misses). The protagonist is both likeable and frustrating, and the travels through the Eye of Terror were wonderfully depicted. The brutality of Ahriman and the chaos realm were no less icy than the haunting footsteps of the Harlequins. There was some description of the Black Library, though I would've liked to seen more (simply because it's so mysterious and been shrouded in t [...]
Initially I was skeptical about reading this book (and I read a lot of Warhammer 40,000 books and am a big fan of the game) but upon completion, I found it to be a surprising treat. It has almost everything you want from a 40K novel- Inquisitors, Space Marines, Daemonhosts, Stormtroopers, IMperial Gaurd, Harlequins, Rogue Traders, Grey Knights, space battles ground battles; its a plethora of 40K themes that actually works toward an interesting and entertaining story. Given that, there were still [...]
100% fanservice, 0% plot.Inquisitor Czevak and his band of merry Heretics see the sights in the Eye of Terror.Nothing makes any sense and every chapter ends with resolving the current emergency Deus Ex Machina. Skip!
This was actually really well written. I had no idea what to expect when I dived in, and during the first few chapters of the book you have no idea who the protagonist is, but then the pieces fall into place and it's a ton of fun.The inquisitor himself is a wonderful character, and the struggle of puritans versus radicals in the Imperial Inquisition, though a bit more black and white than in Eisenhorn, is well portrayed.You find yourself cheering him on at every turn, since this isn't a human th [...]
I'm a big fan of all things Warhammer 40K and especially the Thousand Son's so I thought I'd give this one a try. Overall a better than expected read. I'm used to most Warhammer books being pot boilers but this one had better (deeper) set of characters and a story line that had several unexpected twists and turns. The author's use of switching timelines was extremely entertaining and kept me motivated to keep changes pages. Not as good as the more recent Thousand Sons books (A Thousand Sons, Ahr [...]
I've never wanted a protagonist and everyone associated with them to die so much in anything ever. Didn't finish the book, but I hope it ends with Eisenhorn and Ravenor marching in to kill the shit out of everything and everyone in this book.
It is not a bad book, but a very difficulty one to read. I think the author tried to hid some facts from the reader to make the story more intetesting, but in reallity he turned the story to be very confuse. But it is enjoyable anyway.
Very refreshing in comparison with rest of 40k setting books. Mentions Iluminati (Draco - we won't forget you)!!
come on this deserves Eisenhorn/Ravenor/Draco treatment more books please
A delightfully fresh romp through the darkness of the far future. Notable for the appearance of Harlequins, the Webway, *the* Black Library and a Gamma Level Psyker. Very good.
Surprisingly good. I'm giving it 5 stars because I haven't read many novels that features the Eldar
