A 41. millennium háború tépázta jövőjében, az Inkvizíció titkos háborút vív az emberiség ellenségeivel -idegenekkel, eretnekekkel és démonokkal - hogy megvédje az Ember Birodalmát és az emberiség lelkét.
Gideon Ravenor inkvizítort és kíséretét halottnak hiszik, és az ellenünk szervezkedő, árnyékban bujkáló hatalmasságokat ismerve ők szeretnék is, ha ez így maradna. Visszaté

Dark and out of my comfort zone. I didn't like it at first but it grew on me. Lots of death and scads of action. Nice and enjoyable. I am keeping this tale. =)

This one seemed a bit more fleshed out than the first novel in the trilogy, though it still seems to fall short of the Eisenhorn books. One thing that's starting to stand out for me is how Abnett paints his characters as these huge badasses in their respective fields, but that means that in order for us as readers to feel that they're in any sort of danger they have to go head to head with people at least as tough as them, which in the long run starts to seem stupid. I mean, if Harlon Nayl or Ra ...more

Most people don't like being wrong. Part of the dislike towards being wrong is an innate evolutionary reaction, but most of it is culturally-ingrained. But no matter how hard one tries to avoid being wrong, one can be wrong, and far too often, is. It's simply a part of life.

Sometimes, though, one is happy to be proven wrong - there are plenty of times, I'm sure, when being right would mean something terrible, and in those moments, it's always a happy thing to know that one has been wrong the wh

Inquisitor Gideon Ravenor and his team have evaded a lethal trap and returned incognito to Eustis Majoris. Aware that some of the planet's law-enforcement agencies are involved the flect trade, Ravenor invokes Special Condition status, going deep undercover and gaining the ability to deal with the crisis any way he sees fit.

Ravenor Returned is the second novel in the Ravenor Trilogy and, unusually for an Abnett WH40K novel, does not stand alone, instead picking up almost immediately after the ev

The plots thickens considerably, as schemes many years in the making come to a explosive head. Secrets are revealed and kept. And choices must be made, consequences must be borne.

Dan Abnett a Warhammer je prostě dobrá kombinace. I když tohle rozhodně nepatří k jeho nejlepším sériím, pořád je to čtivé, jsou tam správně podivná prostředí a monumentální bitky. Na druhou stranu tady jde asi jde nejdál ve svém týmovkovém pojetí. Hlavní hrdina tady vlastně ani neexistuje... tedy, existuje, ale profesor Xavier (kterým se podle mě trochu inpsiroval) je vedle něj hotový Usain Bolt. A přiznám se, že zbytek týmu mi dělalo problém od sebe odlišovat. Což je jednak způsobeno mou skler ...more

I really powered through this one. Another Abnett masterpiece. Even more intense and action packed than the previous book, Ravenor Returned is constantly "in the shit" with its fast pacing and numerous twists and turns. The interwoven plots, highly detailed descriptions, diverse local cultures and histories, as well as unique and interesting character provides a richly stimulating experience. Violent and raunchy, the Ravenor series appears to much more focused in its intent and purpose, as oppos ...more

Second Ravenor novel, still five stars!

Ravenor continues his now immensely more dangerous investigation into the nefarious narcotic known as 'Flects'. Presumed dead by his enemies, Ravenor and his retinue must operate in total isolation for any who could help them, lest they are betrayed and lose all hope of successfully completing their task. For their enemies are many and far more powerful than any of them could have imagined. This second novel in the series continues where the first left off.

Hay que ver, como puede cambiar la opinión de un libro de una serie a otro por pequeñísimos detalles. Detallitos insignificantes como tener malos que de verdad manejen el cotarro, den impresión de ser competentes en el desarrollo de su maldad y que te hagan sentir algo cuando la narración se centra en ellos.

Ya solo por eso el libro merece mejor puntuación que el primero pero es de reconocer que hay más cosas que mejoran como que la trama por fin avanza de verdad desde el principio y que varios

From start to finish, was a very engaging romp back on Eustis Majoris! Not much character development, but the story does push onward with the unmasking of the major antagonist. One of the more faster reads since Dan Abnett has once again engaged my thirst for 40k action. Can't wait to start on Ravenor Rogue!

An infinite number of monkeys...

You can definitely see the Lovcraftian influence on 40k in this one! Dead eldric languages that cause great discomfort to humans, megastructures that play key rolls... Also someone may have been watching Ghostbusters a little too much when writing this one. Still very, very cool and it is fun to see those references.

Really enjoyed this one. It's a quantum leap ahead of Ravenor. Abnett hits his stride with this one. Looking forward to Ravenor Rogue!

Ravenor Returned, picks up approximately a year after the events of the previous book. Through the prosecution of his investigation into the Flect Trade, Ravenor has discovered that what he previously thought was a simple drug trade is actually something a whole lot worse. In fact the Flect Trade was just a by-product of a far greater conspiracy.

Hitting the ground running from where the previous book left off, Ravenor and his team are thrust back into the underworld of Eustis Majoris. There they

Mr. Abnett did it again !

I'm absolutely loving the Ravenor trilogy so far. His writing style is very much to my tastes and as I told before on the Book #1 review, the final chapters of the book are by far more exiting than most of the last decade "action" movies.

The plot indeed thickens on the second book and though it was obvious what the "surprise" of the book would be (the identity of Slyte), I enjoyed very much to the last page. Tragedy awaits indeed...

Again, I think this is a 4.5 star book.

This was an OK book. A decent middle chapter, no where near as good as any part of the Eisenhorn trilogy. I'll have to see how the story shapes up in the final book. It might be worth it all, or it might be just blah. Eisenhorn was excellent because of the timespan it took for the entire series to cover and really showed a great progression of the character.

Ravenor it seems, is just going to remain the goodie little two shoes he started out as and isn't going to change much.

Maybe, Abnett just

The first book in this series had me intrigued. Not quiet obsessed, as I tend to get, but interested enough to read Returned. That changed during the course of this book. Abnett has delivered an absolute cracker! I'm now chomping at the bit to get into Rogue.

The sheer scale of this author's imagination within the confides of the Games Workshop universe is unbelievable. His writing is incredibly descriptive and paints magnificent imagery.

The finish is massive. Absolutely massive. Looking forwar

Segunda parte de la trilogía dedicada al inquisidor Ravenor pero no por ello menos intensa ya que si la anterior novela que estaba mas centrada en la “investigación” de un asunto de drogas (entre comillas que esto es Warhammer al fin y al cabo) en esta lo que se intenta es descubrir a los cabecillas de la conspiración y acabar con ellos ante de que puedan llevar a cabo sus planes. Aunque quizás eso no sea tan fácil como parece ya que puede que alguien más aparte de las partes implicadas le inter ...more

Gideon sure gets his ass kicked mentally all the time for being just a mind.

And can't sense whatever Carl is...

And doesn't have a way to report in...

And still doesn't have a weapon on his chair that doesn't require psy power...

Ravenor kinda sucks. Hopefully Eisenhor turns back up and isn't a bad guy.

Glad Kara wasn't demon-replaced like Carl seems to kinda be. So far it just seems like a power upgrade, but of course that be too easy. Carl has some shit luck, it seems.

This book i read about a month after the first. i came home from camp, in which time i had read feed, and picked this up from my brothers shelf. One thing i really liked about this book was the continuation from the first. In Eisenhorn, the inquisitor had been on two completely different missions when he had met cherubael. but in this book, it was less then a year apart. he was still on special condition, trying to elimiate contract 13.

Step up from last book since it has picked the pace up, but I wouldn't really call it a page turner. Abnett sets good foundations, then sends you to a bog that needs some persistence to be trudged through and ends with an interesting "guns blazing" finish. Cliffhanger that announces the next book is there, as usual.
Worth reading if you're already into WH40k but I wouldn't pick Ravenor series as intro to it.
Janne Järvinen
Most of the way through, I enjoyed this book as much as any other Eiseinhorn or Ravenor book. In the end, though, this one doesn't stand on it's own as well other Abnett books.

It's still OK, though, and hopefully Abnett will manage to set up the next book better by sacrificing something in this one.

Another piece of Warhammer 40K from the entirely competent Dan Abnett. It's pure popcorn reading, not intended to engage much of your brain. The middle piece of a trilogy, it does reasonably well as a standalone.
Жанна Пояркова
Я определенно стала фанатом Дэна Абнетта. В мире боевой фантастики трудно назвать кого-то лучше и зажигательнее. Масштаб, схватки, интрига, персонажи - без лишних подробностей, которые оттолкнут аудиторию новеллизаций игр, но и без халтуры. Очень четко, очень круто. Нужно экранизировать немедленно.
