SCIENCE FICTION REVIEW: Warhammer 40k: Path of the Warrior - Gav Thorpe

Release Date: 08/07/10


The ancient eldar are a mysterious race, each devoting their life to a chosen path which will guide their actions and decide their fate. Korlandril abandons peace for the Path of the Warrior. He becomes a Striking Scorpion, a deadly fighter skilled in the art of close-quarter combat. But the further Korlandril travels down this path, the closer he gets to losing his identity and becoming an avatar of war.


The Eldar rise with this, the latest offering from Gav Thorpe. Add to the mix his own special blend of combat mixed with the aesthetic almost feline manoeuvres from this xenos race and you know that the Eldar army is on the march. What you also get from Gav is ideal combat descriptiveness, some good solid dialogue and all bound together with a plot arc that will just enthuse itself to the readers psyche. Its inventive, its got emotional context and it is a tale that many fan has been demanding. Bring on the war.
