Download Epub Format ✓ The Lost PDF by ↠´ Dan Abnett This Omnibus is the third one released for the Gaunt s Ghosts series It contains 4 individual novels I really liked the flow of the novels as they all follow after each other directly Sometimes with Omnibuses you just get a collection of stories that are loosely based together but that is not the case here I highly recommend this book for any fans of the series Please refer to my individual reviews of each book contained in this omnibus Traitor General, His Last Command, The Armour of Contempt, Only in Death.
Loved the haunted feel of this collection.
I remember thinking, I love the Gaunt s Ghosts series, it should be amazing to jump back in And He s already killed off most of my favourite characters, what is the worst that could happen My heart could just burst while reading this that s what Those last few pages, my god I felt so many emotions so damn deeply, I literally need recovery time I loved this book.
Though not perfect, the three novels bring the story of Gaunt and the Ghosts even further than before At this point, with so many books preceding these, parts of each novel can become tiresome where battle description stretches and repeats ad nauseum But as with the past stories, the characters provide the balance to the war infused books that the 40K lore typically demands.
I managed to finish this book in a record time of one week and two days My normal reading speed for omnibuses of this size was around 3 to 4 weeks, but this book was special.
The first chapter of this book was an addictive read I could not help but to just read on their underground activities on Gereon The way that he depicted the chaos infested world was very informative It was the first time i have read about a former imperial world that was conquered by the forces of chaos and how it have affected the lives of the citizens there It really opens up and further expose the reader to the universe of Warhammer40k I especially liked the part where they showed the perspective from the captive general and his life ward The way he ended the book was also pretty decent, a couple of loose ends from previous b
Dan Abnett s Gaunt s Ghost s series just keeps getting better and better as it goes along There s very little I can say that can add to the voluminous verbiage that has already been pontificated about these books and this here omni So let me just say very little and trust that you ll want to read this once you start the very first book.
Dan s amazing ability as a writer is not in his ability to throw you into truly epic gargantuan, huge, AMAZINGLY GIGANTIC battle scenes as well as individual fire fights knife fights though these are, of course, balls to the wall awesome but rather in his ability to make you feel for his characters Remember Lijah Cuu hated that slimy, bastard didn t you Remember Colm Corbec Did you sniff a bit when you realized that he was gone and wouldn t be coming back Same with Bragg Or the hollow feeling you got when Brin Milo went to travel the Crusade w Third omnibus in Dan Abnett s series Gaunt s Ghosts Since the second one he s been culling the herd, and this one suffers from the lack of interesting characters The cast is still large, but the leftovers tend to have plot armour apart from the odd mangled limb, but then that s what augmetics are for and the new additions aren t particularly fething interesting.
Plotwise, the storyline doesn t really seem to be going anywhere either Abnett makes some daring choices by stranding a squad of his folk on a gak all deathtrap of a world and separating them from the rest of the ghosts, but in the next book they re all re integrated and it s grimdark business as usual Not unusual perhaps, but in the end I didn t really care any If you re a die hard fan of this series you ll probably disagree with me, but if you re a moderate odds are you won t really enjoy this volume.
The amount of time it took I swore after Sabbat Martyr that I would not read another book in this series, but this omnibus was inexpensive at a used bookstore and I bought it I actually liked the first two stories The third story was miserable, but expected Abnett likes to chew up his characters and this third story was no exception The last story was the worst I almost stopped reading the story 3 4 of the way through, because I was so tired of the way Abnett made this a complete destruction ending I understand realism in a story, but I like when the heroes win, not just scrape by This series could have had a happy ending, but this omnibus destroyed that chance The series may go on, but I am done with it.
5years to read it all and i must say this is sequel done best it takes what was done in previous omnibuses and builds on them and in turn every book in this omnibus does the same, but with fresh ideas, although armour of contempt is my least favourite might give it another read after some time , what it gives overall and how next one built on it is amazing Dan Abnett please dont ever stop with Ghosts Amazing books, The Lost Author Dan Abnett This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book The Lost , Essay By Dan Abnett Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please read And Make A Refission For You
