Von Matthias am 1. Oktober 2013
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Die verschiedenenDark Eldar Fraktionen, und auch einzelne Individuen, kämpfen wie immer nur um ihren eigenen Vorteil zu sichern und ihre Artgenossen aus dem Verkehr zu ziehen. Obwohl ihre Heimatstadt um sie herum auseinanderfällt, von Dämonen und Bandenkriegen zerbrochen, interessieren sich die meisten nur für ihr eigenes davonkommen und den damit verbundenen Machterwerb. Einzig ein Harlekin und ein in Morr, ein kampferprobter Incubus, versuchen das drohende Schicksal des Untergangs abzuwenden. Das Buch ist sehr gut geschrieben, allerdings bringt das Durcheinander der Erzählungen um die verschiedenen Fraktionen ab und zu etwas Verwirrung mit sich. Der Leser ist ständig darauf bedacht die einzelnen Fäden zusammen zu knüpfen und die Zusammenhänge zu verstehen, was nur erschwert wird durch die Tatsache das unter den Charakteren ein ständiger Seitenwechsel stattfindet, und man wirklich nie weiß ( wie so üblich bei den Dark Eldar) wer gegen wen ist. Das ganze macht dieses Buch ein wenig langatmig, und teilweise strukturlos. Für Fans jedoch ein Muss.

A solid sequel to Path of the Renegade 26. Februar 2013
Von JK - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
As the second book of a planned trilogy, knowledge of the first book and the Warhammer 40K background is really necessary to enjoy this book as the book starts off immediately after the end of the first.

The book itself is more like a collection of short stories each revolving around a lead character as they attempt to deal with the consequences of the events triggered in the first book. The POV hops from character to character but the threads of their stories do not really intersect within this book.

The first story thread follows the titular Incubus character, Morr, who is blamed by the rest of his warrior order for violating the order's neutrality and slaying his patron and employer. He is accompanied by the Harlequin, Motley, in his quest to uphold his honor or die in the attempt. In the course of their travels Morr's background is revealed, laying to rest some of the speculative theories that arose among readers of the first book as to his identity.

The second story thread follows the Dark Eldar Archon Yllithian as he attempts to retain power and bury his role in causing the Dysjunction that afflicts the Dark Eldar city and realm.

The third story thread follows a servant Wrack and a mercenary assassin, and interweaves this with following the Wrack's master, the renegade Haemonculus Bellathonis who is wanted dead by the Black Descent coven that he left long ago.

In the course of their travels and adventures, some more tidbits about Dark Eldar society are revealed.

Andy Chambers' writing style is much more smooth flowing, visceral, and earthy than the more dry style in the other Eldar trilogy, Path of the Warrior by Gavin Thorpe. Some readers might complain this makes the Dark Eldar more like humans than aliens, however I do not find this an issue as all the major alien races in Warhammer 40K are and have always been exaggerations of humanity's traits in one form or another. They have never been truly incomprehensible or alien, nor I would argue are they meant to be no matter how much some people, Games Workshop writers included, might claim. They are mirrors of humanity, and in the Dark Eldar case, they show a society in which selfishness is exalted above all, leading to the inevitable endless cycle of conflict, struggle, and intrigue.
Big ideas but a hollow read 25. Juli 2013
Von Neil Herron - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
You can see some very large, bright ideas in this book about fate, societal differences, and morality but it just rings hollow. These philosophical ideas had no real underpinning throughout the story. The opening, middle, and ending narration felt tacked on to explain what the story itself never really showed. It was a perfectly serviceable novel set in the Warhammer world, though I do feel like these Dark Eldar were far too human. The Path of Eldar series made the Eldar race seem more alien and unique, as did the earlier book in this series. I did enjoy how this novel explored all three Eldar branches.

As far as characters only Morr (Incubus) was consistently great. Sardon, Kharbyr, Xagor had some very solid parts as well. Aez'ashya started out rather interesting but nothing further was done with her. Yllithian and Bellathonis each had sizable parts but both felt mostly like filler. Something relatively big happened to both of them but it didn't make an impact since the characters remained exactly the same. In fact it almost seemed like a common occurrence considering how little changed.

The book was by no means bad, and I might have actually given it another star but the editing was rather unforgivable. The number of types and grammatical issues really pulled me out of the story. As a long time reader of Black Library I'm pretty disappointed that the editing quality slipped to such a low level.
Amazing!!!!!! 24. Juni 2013

I would say this book outdid its predecessor, new characters are added in and built up well! The story was intriguing and left you always wanting to read!
Great story (within certain background) 15. Mai 2013
Von Thomas Lau - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Series:
Path of the Renegade
Path of the Incubus

As the title already mentioned, this is a great story but with certain conditions. My recommendation is to read the Eldar Path series by Gav Thorpe first. That trilogy, while not the best ending focuses on the Eldar concept of fates. In particular how all the fates are interconnected and no single action is truly independent of everything.

This fate concept is the underlying idea behind this Dark Eldar paths series.
In Path of the Incubus we follow the consequences of the first book. Once again, the overall theme is that fate itself is never independent and that there are always consequences. Without spoiling too much, this is a worthy ending of the two books for the Dark Eldar Paths series.

What made this a 5 star book is, having read the Eldar Paths and Dark Eldar Paths series, the final question Mortley asks. A simple but profound question that brings the whole series into a beautiful closing and shines an unlikely spotlight onto the Eldar race as a whole. And that despite their differences, there are similarities that each side denies.
Loved it.
Another great Dark Eldar story by Andy Chambers 11. Mai 2013
Von steve - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I find Andy Chambers writing to be original with many different threads that weave together nicely at the end of the book. His writing style and imagination paints an elaborate picture in one's mind when reading his stories. I would recommend all his books and shorts on the Dark Eldar. Next to Aaron Dembski-Bowden he is one of the best writers for 40k.
