Little progress is made in advancing the characters from the state they occupied at the end of the previous novel. It seems almost like Abnett hit a length limit and simply stopped the book, making this novel almost a brief transition in the series. There is more mysticism like that used in Honor Guard, which seems basically to foreshadow something in the next book. The really likable characters do well, though as before a lot of them get shot up. There is one REALLY unlikable character who again comes through (in Guns of Tanith he murdered one of the major characters in the regiment), it seems to me, simply to have a villain in the ranks (nevermind that there are already several who hate the commander, Gaunt; I guess we needed someone for the regular ranks to battle).
All in all, this is the weakest book yet in the series. It does serve well, though, in introducing new readers to the present state of the characters and the setting.Read more ›
Some fans of the Gaunt's Ghosts don't really like this book, other like myself,absolutey love this book. So give it a try, but read all the other first.
