Out of all of the books in this trilogy, this one was the least enjoyable for me.

French is a good writer, and overall he did a fantastic job on this series of books, and the third one fits really well with the other two. Each of the characters from earlier in the series play a part in this novel, bringing together a number of different threads in a truly Tzeenchian manner. There's a lot in this novel that 40k fans will enjoy, and I admit, I enjoyed them as well, which is why this novel still got

У книги странная проблема: отсутствие интриги и переизбыток интриг одновременно.

С одной стороны, читать историю, как Ариман пытается откатить рубрику и упокоиться с миром - примерно ... ну не знаю, как про Колумба, ищущего Индию. найдет или нет?

С другой - три слоя СПГС. Книга переполнена героями, каждыф из которых имеет свои очень хитрые планы и очень глубокие мотивы. При этом герои довольно картонные. В итоге их перестаешь отличать одного от другого.

Возможно, автор хотел компенсировать отсутст

A truly Tzeentchian ending for this trilogy, with some interesting plot twists.

Betrayal comes to fruition. The Crimson King becomes more integrated and the Thousand Sons’ storyline as a fractured legion advances.

Overall, this marks a satisfying end to a gripping trilogy. If you're a fan of Ahriman, A Thousand Sons and Warhammer 40k in general, this trilogy needs to be read. There's lots of nice cameos in this final book, which I won't spoil, but needless to say when certain names and characters popped up, I had a big grin on my face. I certainly hope we'll get more Ahriman novels in the future, as he is a wonderfully complex character, who is actually very human at the core. It would be great to see Fre ...more

The third and final novel in John French’s ambitious trilogy, Ahriman : Unchanged sees the Thousand Son sorcerer firmly back at the peak of his powers. Using knowledge gleaned from the Athenaeum (see Ahriman : Sorcerer) he prepares to enact a new Rubric, a grand undertaking that will correct the mistakes of his past. To do so he has to lead his forces back to Prospero and the scene of his legion’s darkest hour, and from there to face their father Magnus deep within the Eye of Terror. Standing in ...more

I'm not really fond of dream-like journeys of the mind, however I also have to admit that the tale of the Thousand Sons could not be told any other way. I also have to admit that I like how the Ahriman series connects 30K to 40K in a similar way to the Night Lords series.
