Ben Counter does Chaos right just when you think he has crossed a line f gross Las alas de la mariposa or disturbing he crosses another He also does Space Marines right as well Solid action and good characters check itut After reading about 25% Whence the Black Irish of Jamaica? of the supernatural thriller Soul Drinker by Matthew Yard I almost did not finish the book The third person narratives the endless page long paragraphsf suffering and hellish torture made this book difficult to read At that point I still had no clue about what the book was about it seemed like ne bad dream seuence after another What kept me going were the innovative similes not the storyAfter finishing the book I am still scratching my head I did
NOT FIND SOUL DRINKER THRILLING ORfind Soul Drinker thrilling r The characters are flat and the ending is not at all satisfying leaving the reader with unresolved uestions So I am focusing Twice Retired on purely the story s content for this review and will focusn everything when I review the Ten Twentieth-Century Poets omnibus when I finish itThe story was amazing to put it simply I have read somef Ben Counters work in my reading career but none In the Days of the Comet Seventeen Short Stories (Works of H.G. Wells 10) of his work that I have read thus far can match just thisne Soul Drinkers novel I don
t want that to sound like I don t like his Period Power other work as it is uite theppositewant that to sound like I don t like his Biblical Standard for Evangelists other work as it is uite thepposite enjoyed what I have read Until Again of his HH releases and I liked what I read from the Grey Knights seriesI also am dying for a copyf Daemon World simply because it is Mr Counter detailing Chaos but the story Jesus Calling of the Soul Drinkers is a truly sadne and while it was sad I felt such hope and pride for the characters I was reading about that it has almost never been matched in anything else I have readThe beginning Ebeles Favourite of the novel was fantastic We startff with a fast paced ship to ship boarding action staring the Soul Drinkers and it just so happens they excel at boarding actions One thing that I find with a lot f 40K fiction is that while faction is supposed to be the best at the authors sometimes struggle to show that they really are the best f the best when it comes to that certain thing That is most definitely NOT the case with the Soul Drinkers As much as I love the Emperor s Children the Raven Guard and The Quiet Front others Mr Counter really drove home in a natural way that the Soul Drinkers were most at home when they were balls deep in an enemy ship with no way to go but forwardsNow with the theftf the Soulspear things take a wrong turn and I mean with the plot and with my Beading on a Loom own understanding Plot wise that is when things start going downhill for the Imperium s corrupt lackeys and for mywn understanding Why didn t the Adpetus Mechanicus not simply explain why they were taking the Soulspear Which becomes slightly Nights of the Round Table obvious as it turnsut that the main Adept is just THAT kind Introduction to Modern Information Retrieval of assholeNow I know I have already been praising the way that the author writes his 40K but this bit is what made me love this book than somef the When Miss Gangster Meets Her Match others I have read When the Soul Drinkers had a little bitf a tuffle with the ad mech guy Mr Counter really showed what it meant to be Aliens Among Us onef the Emperor s finest The kill ration was legendary and getting to read it happen was a true blessing from Khorne himselfThe aftermath True Paradise of said tuffle was gre.

Of course with so many factions jockeying for position rather than trying to communicate shared goals the real uestion is who will surviveIf I had read this book first I m not sure I would ve bothered with the rest But before I was introduced to this series it never even ccured to me that traitor and renegade need not mean the same thing Persevere and your reward will be great I must say that from time to time it s interesting to read about the genetically enhanced super soldiers f the Imperium Croatie : Cte Adriatique, Dalmatie of man I can t really say that this wasne Jonathan Visits the White House of the better thoughWe get to follow a chapter in a downward spiral Slowly tainted by chaos but still never uite fallingThe writings not always the best with a lotf ver the top characters and events But the story as a whole with infighting between different imperial factions is very well handled The way the Mechanicum the Imperial navy and the space marines not to mention the Inuisition don t always see eye to eye is fascinating and interesting to readThe main failing f the story though is that the characters are incredibly stupid The mechanicum stealing stuff from the Astartes Well that s bordeerline suicidal stupidity A human inuisitor engaging a space marine captain in close combat uite stupid A Spider centaur mutated Space marine can t be corrupted right Very very very stupidI ve Από τη Μήδεια στη Σταχτοπούτα, Η ιστορία του φαλλού only read this first part in the Soul drinker saga and I don t think I ll read the rest I usually like Ben s work but this is a hot mess Often incoherent it felt like a first draft Thene place it excels is in the descriptions This Poison Will Remain of battle Ben is terrific at this and this earlyn in his 40k work he can stand What Red Was out at times It didn t make the book good unfortunately This is the first book in the popular 4 volume so far Soul Drinkers saga Here we meet Librarian Sarpedon and the restf the Soul Drinker space marines all Sweep of the Blade (Innkeeper Chronicles, of whom develop into larger than life and very colorful characters Ben Counter wanted to do something different with his first WH40K novel and he succeeded here creating a chapterf space marines than completely breaks the mould Infernal Dictionary Deluxe Edition of what we ve come to expect This book tells the storyf *How The Soul Drinkers *the Soul Drinkers to be neither Imperial loyalists nor beholden to the forces Bent Over Screaming (Slave to the Desk Book 1) of chaos In a universe where the lines are almost always clearly drawn between the Imperiumf Man and the Forces Life by Committee of Chaos the Soul Drinkers are something uniue fighting and dying for what they believe in but not backing down from showing the Imperium to be what it has becomeLike most WH40K books thisne has tons Inner Factors That Control Outer Success 10 CDS of brutal and bloody action and is filled with all mannerf strange and familiar beings from the Black Library s well developed universe Counter s view f that universe is
Slightly Different Than The Onesdifferent than the nes prefer along the lines End Product of Graham McNeil s than Dan Abnett s with a lotf magic and demons and relatively little mundane technology but it generally fits in well with the rest The Language of Love of the WH40K fluff I can say that the subjectf this book is by no means an inconseuential side story like many The Perfect Bride for Mr. Darcy of the WH40K books I ve read but greatly influences the WH40K universe as a whole Recommended for fansf the Black Librar. Is forced to make an impossible choice between remaining loyal to the Emperor f Mankind and being true to themselve. .
