This reads like a horny, sci fi crazy, teenager s acid trip. This is one of the most mature, almost high brow, WH40K books I ve come across Ian Watson writes using sometimes very obscure adjectives and adverbs that might considerably slow down your reading speed, but succeeds in casting the world of WH40K in a very dark and disturbing light That being said, this is still an action packed and fun novel that you ll want to read when you should be doing

using sometimes very obscure adjectives and adverbs that might considerably slow down your reading speed, but succeeds in casting the world of WH40K in a very dark and disturbing light That being

bitmelancholy and doubting of his ideals He finds himself in the middle of an extremely confusing and possibly devastatingly powerful plot involving mysterious strangers and previously trusted allies Through most of the book Draco is lead around like a dog on a leash by supposed adversaries that he doesn t know but is determined to identify Both Draco, his companions, and the antagonist are extremely compelling characters that each hide their own secrets but are easy to fall in love with They are, in my opinion, the best part of this book.Draco is the first book in the Inquisition War trilogy and is followed by Harlequin Warhammer 40,000 In this first book, you ll get a different perspective on many parts of the Imperium than you get in other WH40K books You even get a tour of the Emperor s Palace on Terra, and receive a somewhat disturbing view of the Emperor himself somewhat like a Wizard of Oz character that I personally did not find pleasing Ian Watson has received a lot of criticism from fans of WH40K because of his somewhat lofty writing style and his slightly altered view of the WH40K universe, but I d recommend giving him a try Ci si muove all interno di un contesto a me molto gradito, il che gli ha garantito la sufficienza, ma non si va oltre Personaggi piatti e scialbi, e la cosa ha dell incredibile dato che il tutto concentrato su quattro gatti di cui si parla

praticamente con nessuno Eppure la trama ha un suo perch , per il mio distacco unito al fatto che i protagonisti sembrano portare avanti la propria missione in modalit facile visto che non ho mai

interesting plot wise though it was very slow to get going It s hard to imagine a book where millions of people die in the first half as slow but Watson managed to make this happen with off screen as

incredibly badass The first half of the book I didn t m The books started with Draco This was the most interesting plot wise though it was very slow to get going It s hard to imagine a book where

paperback Like any Omnibus that I own, whether it is a Warhammer 40k or an old fantasy omnibus, I will from now review each individual book in the Omnibus instead of reviewing the omnibus all at once That isn t to say that I won t review the Omnibus itself nonetheless WARNING POTENTIAL SPOILERS APPROACHING WARNING Okay, first things first, while I love RPG video games like Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, I know little to nothing about table top RPGs like Warhammer 40k or Dungeons and Dragons I ve heard about Warhammer 40k over the years, but never really looked into it or seemed to have too much interest in it So, what got me into reading Warhammer fiction I was perusing the imdb page of legendary director Stanley Kubrick one day and saw that, while he was working with author Ian Watson on his film A.I Kubrick saw a copy of Inquisitor by Watson and reportedly, he wanted to adapt it for his next film I was all, like, Kubrick had he not died would have done a movie adaptation of a table top RPG and he seemed pretty excited about it I had to read that book So, I picked up a copy of the Inquisition War Omnibus on and just like that, I was hooked I think also reading Frank Herbert s Dune and the graphic novels The Incal and The Metabarons by Alejandro Jodorowsky helped me out as well, as their style well, okay, mostly Jodo s was highly reminiscent of this novel It took me a little while, but I was able to read the first book part of the Inquisition War Draco and I am very interested to read what happens next in the series.Essentially, from a layman s point of view or basically a point of view of a man who has never played Warhammer 40k, ever , this is set in a dystopic future where the Roman Catholic Church has taken full control and established themselves as a intergalactic empire Sort of like Final Fantasy X and the Church of Yevon controlling all aspects of everyone s lives under the threat of heresy and death A secret agent or inquisitor, named Jaq Draco, while doing routine missions on a wartorn world, encounters a mysterious harlequin outfitted man who will essentially challenge everything Draco believes in and reveal a horrifying conspiracy that will shake the pillars of the Empire.The writing is a little weird with all the technical pseudoscientific terms and strange Latin being thrown around Also, when dialogue comes up, it isn t put inside quotation marks but instead regular apostrophes That made it quite hard to follow.Also, the characters are not incredibly cool or sympathetic to their plight Still, it would be interesting who would win in a fight, Luke Skywalker or Jaq Draco Finally, the book ends very abruptly after a boat load of build up, leaving manyquestions than answers However, my curiosity is piqued and I want to keep reading this series.May the Force be with you A bit of a disappointment, I m a huge fan of early Warhammer 40K, the inventiveness and scope of the games in the late 80s were astonishing and beautiful, and I expected similar from the first 40K novel, published in 1990 What I got was a book of which the entire first chapter is spent ogling the sexy female assassin character, and a leading man so stupid he joins a secret cult dedicated to allowing a big psychic tentacle monster take over humanity, and then literally MINUTES later decides H A bit of a disappointment, I m a huge fan of

humanity, and then literally MINUTES later decides Hmm. actually, I don t think this lot are on the up and up I will now make it my sworn quest to destory this cult I joined like 10 minutes ago The ending however is spectacular, as The Gang the titular Inqusitor Drago, the aforementioned sexy assassin lady Meh Lindi, a Space Dwarf called Grimm and an effeminate warp navigator called Googol who writes poetry infiltrate Earth in an attempt to tell the God Emperor of Mankind about this sinister tentancle monster plot Earth or Terra, technically seeing as this is 40K is described in fascinating, gruesome detail, almost a prose version of the artwork of John Blanche or Ian Miller This section is somewhat dreamlike in the way it shortens and enlongates time, especially when they finally meet the Emperor after months of hiding, waiting and being in disguise This goes a long way to redeeming the fairly underwhelming rest of the book I special ordered a used copy of this book offand after finishing it, promptly left it in one of those neighbourhood book libraries I could not tolerate its intellectual stink infecting my house Woe betide they who reads this book.
