Damnit!! It's a trilogy itself!!
That what I thought after seeing the announcement on Black Library for the omnibus edition.

When reviewing the Path of the Renegade three years ago (https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...), I kinda lamented it only being one part, and only being loosely coupled to the Eldar Path-trilogy of Gav Thorpe.
Well, as it turns out, this is the Dark Eldar Path-trilogy; and as it turns out, it's just as awesome.

The Renegade was about a craftworld eldar joining the "Dark Kin

The Dark Eldar series was as satisfying as the Craftworld Eldar series was disappointing. Definitely recommend it.

Maybe ***1/2, if I'm feeling generous, but maybe not.

I wanted to find out how the story continued, and read more description of the "Dark City," but there are problems with this installment in the Dark Eldar series: Morr and Motley's story is interesting - the most interesting subplot in the entire book, giving some fascinating background about the Incubi in general, while adding to the legends of Arhra - but it's not enough to carry the book by itself. The rest of the subplots felt ancillary, a

There's an entertaining enough book buried in this mess, but it's just barely visible. An editor might have cleaned up the purple prose, addressed the weird tonal shifts, and cleaned up the glaring inconsistencies that occur from passage to passage.

And, even with all of those flaws, this could have been an acceptable diversion. Except there are like a half-dozen stories, interwoven to the point where progress on any one thread is always incremental. It kills the pacing of the book; it's like re

Автор явно "расписался" по сравнению с первой частью. Герои обрели индивидуальность, мотивы и цели. Перед лицом катаклизма Разобщения, когда город Комморра распадается на части под атаками сил варпа, каждый делает что может и что умеет для спасения себя и ситуации. Нашлось даже место альтруизму, благородным жертвам и товариществу пред лицом превосходящего врага.
Благополучный финал, достигнутый реками крови и горами трупов очень в стиле Вархаммр 40к и в то же время удовлетворяют естественную пот

really 4.5 but better than a 4

Basically I liked the flow of this story better than book 1 of the trilogy and I liked the way "the onion peeled" layer by layer. Moxley's character develops the history of the Eldar much better than what can find in the game Codex's.

A crowning achievement and a proud in depth study of the Dark Eldar bravo Andy Chambers for writing something unique and gripping. I finished the book in a week and it was a delightful and repeatable journey.

A very good book which gave a good insight about the Dark Eldar. You dont need to have read the first Book of the Trilogie or the Eldar-Trilogie but it wouldnt be bad if.
Especially if some names ring a bell.

A massive Disjunction throws the Eternal City into turmoil and kabals try to overthrow the old order. The novel is a light page turner with interesting characters and good small scale action. It's interesting to see how different treacherous characters can actually be kind of likeable.
