SCIENCE FICTION REVIEW: Gaunt's Ghost: The Lost (Omnibus) - Dan Abnett


The Tanith First-And Only are among the most legendary regiments of Imperial Guard and at their head stands Commissar Ibram Gaunt, unflinching in duty and unrelenting in combat. The Lost sees the very furure of the regiment in jeopardy as Gaunt battles the forces of Chaos the Sabbat Worlds, from rescue missions to the horrors of the battlefield, the Tanith First-And-Only must survive extreme dangers or be forever lost.


Omnibus’ are a cracking way to get multiple tales by the same author for a great price. Here in this latest offering in the Gaunt’s Ghost series you get three top quality Abnett tales (Traitor General, His Last Command, The Armour of Contempt) for your money and a great way to keep all the titles to hand. Add to the mix the Abnett seal of quality, cracking combat, great descriptive prose and a way of tale spinning that make many authors weep and you know that you’ve got something special. That said, remember that this is part of an ongoing series (this being books 8-10 of the Gaunt’s Ghosts series) so please read them up to this point to get the most out of it.
