I wrote a long review and it got eaten by my browser. Basically it is a series of events written from three characters viewpoints. Make sure to read until the end, the last short story (Dark Son) was amazing and featured -imho- the most interesting character of the bunch. Read it if you want background info on Eldar, otherwise, don't.

So here is the short form:
Path of the Warrior: Korlandril, quite pompous, gets really fucking angry and deals with it by getting on the path of the warrior and that

This short was perhaps the best piece of fiction in the entire omnibus. We get a look at the best character in the first book, and oh Slaanesh, it doesn't disappoint. Getting to see into

Normally in an omnibus, I like to review each novel separately; I'm not going to be doing that in this case since the author has written three novels that all describe the same basic events from three point of views.
This is an interesting idea, but I unfortunately I don't think it quite works. The first book is pretty interesting, but the second and third suffer from already knowing what's going to happen. It doesn't help that the main characters of all three books are kind of obnoxious - the fi

Well what can I say, this book pulled itself back from the brink.
Book 1 started off brilliantly, setting the scene and then capturing my attention from the get-go. Sadly it ended abruptly and left me rather annoyed and with a feeling like 'gav thorpe must have over run his word limit'
Book two pulled me out of this abyss and got me going again but ill admit it did start to waffle a little especially when thirianna was 'following threads' by ene of book 2 i was ready to sack it.
But book 3.... Oh m

The main character is probably the most deaf, dumb, and blind Eldar there is. While that makes him a good vehicle to describe every detail of the Eldar, he sure is annoying to read about. Despite their gifts, abilities, and tech, you can see why the Eldar are doomed. A beautiful candle that burned bright, but now flickers.

AS the story transitions from the first character, I enjoy it more, but as I get into the third character, I am annoyed all over again. The Game manual of the Eldar had me exci

This is a "different" kind of story to the usual Imperial 40k in which the writer, Gav Thorpe, succeeded splendidly. Not only the story take place from a different view of the universe but also through an "alien's" senses.

The Eldar has many different Paths that make them stronger in some aspects, and, for an Eldar, after one Path is done it's time for the next one. To the reader this done by starting up a new part in Eldar Omnibus.

I recommend this novel but perhaps not as a first one to read of

absolutely love this collection. The concept of the three seperate protagonists telling the same story from their own perspectives in their own respective book, is brilliantly done and seeing the cause and affect of the characters choices is very rewarding.

Good stuff, but speed read the first few chapters unless you enjoy overly sentimental and sensitive man-child problems.
