John French ¶ Resurrection ebook Book 1 in the Horusian Wars seriesSummoned to an inuisitorial conclave Inuisitor Covenant believes he has uncovered an agent of Chaos and prepares to denounce the heretic Talicto before his fellowsREAD IT BECAUSEJohn French shines a spotlight on the Inuisition in his own inimitable style delving into the grim darkness of the far future as never beforeTHE STORYWar rages in the Caradryad Sector Worlds are fallin Deus uem punire vult dementat Whom God wishes to destroy he first makes mad Once again we dwell in the corner of InuisitionJohn French one of the most talented BL authors provided us with the new insight into the dark corners of the far Galaxy and it's most pridefulsinful and opportunistic protectors Inuisitors The Horusian Wars Resurrection follows the new mainstream from GW the times of change gathering storm Noctis Aeterna and everything that follows Which makes it's own corrections to the narrative of the story For the full understanding of the setting characters and events leading to the The Horusian Wars Resurrection it is highly recommended that you 'readers' will take your time and read the lead in shorts released before the novel appearance The Blessing of Saints special story for the LE The Purity of Ignorance The Maiden of the Dream Absolution of swords intended to push you deep into the company psyche and ideals while providing a first glimpse as to what they would be doing into the main novel So let's delve into the abyss Light spoilers ahead NarrativeThe first novel in a new let's hope a long running series almost solely focuses on Covenant and his acolytes partway through their hunt for a fellow inuisitor a radical inuisitor named Talicto Previous shorts provide some glimpses on the steps that needed to be taken to apprehend the 'heretic' Which eventually leads to a truly uniue and rare gathering of Inuisition A Conclave which should provide Covenant with an opportunity to denounce Talicto for his sins and transgressions But as the BL novel blurp says 'with so many inuisitors gathered in one place events inevitably don’t go uite to plan' All that is happening during the time of 'darkness despair and chaos ascendant' With the warp storms wracking the Imperium Chaos in ascendancy and things becoming and fractured and under pressure in such a big galaxy you still can be focused on some focal events and locations It's apocalypse tomorrow And John used it in full In recent interviews he talked a lot about his investigation into the threats to civilization terrorist attacks biochemical weapons etc Add to that a grandeur view into the churning wheels of the Inuisition circles with a good explanation to the inuisition ideologies clubs Horusians and Thorians due to being the main players in the novel take the main stage for the drama And thus a tale of suspense investigation and running out of time plays out From the moment the Conclave is broken attacked and almost totally purged the story start running with a feel of despair loneliness and the birthmarks of something horrible to happen As a usual master of suspense and John French is truly a wonderful 'pupil' of Lovecraft the story immerse you into the depths of abyss With terror despair chaos and death mixed and built into a shrine to the universe nobody of us will want to live in Each story of John contain even a little glimpse of depression and wrong choices this one is not an exclusion to the rule And French do this masterfully By the end of The Horusian Wars Resurrection you will be glad that you live on this shining and lovely planet And that you are not a small cog in the churning wheel of the grimdark W4041K The other part of the storyline which makes it interesting is the beginning of your reader love with the new bunch of characters They are plunged into a cauldron of ideologies hidden truths unexpected discoveries and forsaken loyalties As the end result it all gave you the first place on a scene of a burning Galaxy That doesn't mean that the narrative is without issues and tempo mistakes But I will explain them a little bit laterCharacters His 'new' old characters which are the main positive points of the novel were recreated accordingly to the new times with a small addition of the old lore First of all mister Covenant and co were introduced to the W40K a long time ago If I'm not mistaken it was 2000 or 2001 then the Inuisitor rulebook was released Thus Covenant and co had already been built up to some expectations a long time ago Newold Covenant himself is not shown directly as a main story driver Narrative is intentionally not explained through the first person views Like the story of Eisenhorn Through the eyes of others we see his character being built up Covenant represents a mystery Mystery for the universe strange case for the Inuisition and human soul in the grimdark setting Thus we saw him by his acolytes – Josef Koleg Von Castellans scions Cleander and Viola even woman Sororita Severita you all know I despise manlike musculine women characters Each of them are not what you would expect For example preacher Josef is human than von Castellans and every other character And absolutely different human being to the one you expect from the priest You would have expected a zealot fanatic and idolator all in one Instead you have a man who truly believe but ready to accept others failings and views And who truly can help with the word or praise And also Covenant is a psyker It's nothing new cause if you will compare other books about the W40K Inuisition from BL Eisenhorn Ravenor Carrion Throne now Resurrection you will see that almost all of the main protagonistsantagonists are psykers of different levels Here psykers are of ‘a lower order’as French said himself They have chunks of different powers and abilities – but much grounded to the real universe Again as John said himself 'Covenant has a bit of light telepathy if you like some telekinesis and some other functional and reasonably controlled powers but there’s nothing spectacular there He’s not going to do an Ahriman and destroy an entire room full of Chaos Space Marines in the space of time it takes for his heart to beat once' And that's is good cause after the 'epic' storytelling of the GSDark Imperium we need 'grounded' stuff Likewise Mylasa who’s kind of his pet telepath and whose job is to scoop out people’s minds and perform psychic interrogations – that’s all she does She doesn’t have any of the other bells and whistles she’s not going to be throwing lightning around as she’s actually physically very weakBut that doesn't make her a scary psyker and death incarnate at all She is also one of the most human characters ever Even secondary characters and main 'antagonists' feel like a part of a 'family' Created with love and attention to details Also he covers one additional theme in all it's glory and horror He is probably one of the rare BL authors who outstandingly show the emergence of a dormant psyker into the W40K world That one scene on the 'Valour of Flame' was not simply brilliantly done it gave me the greatest cosmic horrordesolate shipsdespair in vacuum vibe since the times I watched 'Beyond Horizon' movie a long time agoCons Even through Resurrection is a very good book it has issues Any kind of reader will eventually see them while reading One of the top ones is over descriptiveness of everything Which is kind of strange cause it's predecessor about Inuisition by Chris Wraight The Carrion Throne was awesome exactly due to the total descriptiveness on everything That gave real soul to Terra But here John describe everything from a bullet to a wall to ship to planet etc Instead of additional layer of suspense for which French is famous for he use a lot of descriptions which are not needed at all Partly it is done to cover the next issue which is the prominent one By describing everything John eat pages that should have been given to a fluent building of a plotline Which in 'general' through good is 'almost' boring I do not agree with my review colleague 'track of words' that The Horusian Wars Resurrection 'might not be for everyone especially if you’re hoping for a straightforward depiction of the Inuisition and what ‘the Horusian Wars’ really arebut if you’re willing to put the effort in then you’ll be rewarded with something uite special Just be prepared to be patient while you wait for the next installment' Issue is not that it's not a straightforward depiction of the Inuisition yada yada Point is the story progression where it stands in the end; depiction of events or mainly the absence of events and not resolved build up of suspense is what made story 'almost' boring And that partly due to the Antagonists Problem is Talicto and his 'company' are too human 'New' enemy in the second part of the book is too human They does not feel like Chaos like enemy of mankind like GREAT EVIL The main 'evil' is too human there is nothing dangerous or 'outworldethereal' in him Even through he maddles with the warp we does not see the truly 'corrupting' influence of it It's like a doctor who used the wrong tools and patient died Problem was in the tools and partly with the doctor himself Thus you can't truly feel for the Covenant Cause 'you can't see the evil' in Talicto and co If you will read 300 pages ebook and stop at that point you will not have 'feelings' and 'worries' for the Covenant whom you will see simply as a naive youth To fully comprehend the structure and antagonists you need a full novel to finish And all the while you will not feel that our main protagonists were in any danger at all You could almost 'predict' that Covenant and team is plot ard ScoreJohn French has written a really good and amazing book In general It is truly complex structured built up to the hype with the tone and grimdark of W40K mixed with Lovecraft For the insight view on the Inuisitorial ideology thorians and horusians in particular character's histories and beliefs great depiction for the grim dark of GSNoctis Aeterna uestion of psykers place in the universe and their emergence awesome 'suspense' and lovecraftian vibe I give Resurrection 4 out of 5 stars Hope it will be a great serie with a lot of incoming storylines events and novels for us to readAfter all 'By ignorance we mistake and by mistakes we learn'
