SCIENCE FICTION REVIEW: Warhammer 40K: Path of the Eldar 3: Path of the Outcast - Gav Thorpe

Release Date: 13/09/12


Aradryan has chosen to leave his sheltered life on Craftworld Alaitoc and walk the Path of the Outcast, seeking the myriad pleasures and threats the wider galaxy has to offer. Still unfulfilled as a ranger, he is lured into the life of a star pirate, bringing him into conflict with the Imperium of Man. A chain of events is set in motion that could have catastrophic consequences for Alaitoc, forcing Aradryan to take drastic action if his old home is to survive.


The Eldar return in the concluding part to Gav Thorpe’s Eldar Path trilogy, bringing the mysterious lithe Xenos in hard core action sequences to the readers imagination. It’s imaginative, the author bringing all their talents to give you the mysteriousness alongside solid prose with a wonderfully almost poetic turn of phrase as agenda’s are revealed and the fates are cast.

Add to this cracking pace with barely a moment to breathe and all in for me this is the best of the series. Cracking stuff all round and a wonderful read.
