Dan Abnett's Warhammer 40K novels certainly deliver. This is the second Gaunt's Ghosts novel, and I enjoyed it even more than the first (First and Only (Warhammer 40,000)). I'm not an expert on the Warhammer 40K universe. I read the books because they come highly recommended by my brother in law. With good cause, I might add. I guess it all comes down to specific taste, but these novels do exactly what they set out to do, and there is no pretension to anything else. What we have here is military [...]

The second book in the Gaunt's Ghosts series by Dan Abnett carries on in the same vein as the first, in that it is truly excellent. The structure is in the same style as the first book, "First and Only", in that it does not follow a linear narrative, but makes use of flashbacks to fill in the history of the characters. What is really clever is how these flashbacks go right up to the current story line, which gives a better insight into the characters, than if we had just learnt about them in the [...]

Segunda entrega de los Fantasmas en la que se intenta solucionar uno de los problemas de la anterior entrega, que no es otro que los personajes eran demasiado arquetipicos: El forzudo, el solitario, el criminal, Así que en esta se nos presentan retazos del pasado de los personajes para que podamos conocerlos mejor y poder diferenciarlos un poco, y de paso Abnett enlaza alguno de estos flashbacks con el tiempo presente. En resumen: Entretenido y correcto en su intención de darle un poco de prof [...]

Sacred feth!Its been a while since I finished First and Only wich I liked alot. Ghostmaker starts with a 84page short story that kinda refreshes ones memory about who Guant, Tanith and most of all the Ghosts came to be. Tanith, the planet where the Ghosts originate from ,was destroyed by order of General-commisar Ibram Guant cuase it was tainted by Chaos. Only a handfull of men escaped with him of the planet. They became the ghosts not olny cuase they are exelent scouts but also they are all tha [...]

Second book in the Gaunt's Ghosts series. And where the first one dropped you in the middle of the campaign with the Ghost's this book does not have a long running narrative. Sure there is a story that we visit on every other chapter, and it is the tale that gets you from point A to point B. However, the real story is every chapter is about one of the main characters in the Tanith 1st Regiment. You get one action packed vignette about all the big names. Gaunt, Brin, Bragg, Corbec, Rawne, Mkoll, [...]

The second book in the Gaunt's Ghosts series is as good as the first one. More intensely violent military conflict in space against the horrifying forces of chaos, and it is again pulled off as well as any book of this type that I have read.This story is a series of shorter events that each describe one of the main characters in more detail. This is a very cool way to tackle a complex group of individuals like this and really helps you learn more about their motivations and goals.If you liked th [...]

This is the second Gaunt's Ghosts book by Dan Abnett. This book was formed from a bunch of short stories that appeared in Inferno! magazine and I believe they were actually written before the first book.This book deals with the back story of a lot of the main characters, we learn their thoughts and emotions and what makes them human, and what makes them "real" in a sea of billions of Imperial Guardsmen.

The Liberation Crusade continues its push into the Sabbat Worlds, pushing the forces of Chaos back on every front. The Tanith First-and-Only are deployed to Monthax, a jungle world which reminds the Tanith forces of their lost homeworld. As the battles there degenerate into a long, drawn-out stalemate the troopers known as Gaunt's Ghosts find themselves recalling the battles of the past even as a mysterious presence in the deep jungles decides to use the human forces for their own endsGhostmaker [...]

Highly entertaining and quite devourable.Ghostmaker does a fantastic job of going back and properly introducing us to the bevy of characters that make up the Tanith First. Abnett's writing is significantly improved and much tighter.The increased characterisation was excellent - though let's be honest we're still dealing with the classic WW2 trope characters here. Don't go into expecting something mind shattering or eye opening. But they're a fun, well-developed set of tropes that have a servicea [...]

Book two of the Gaunt’s Ghosts series, Ghostmaker – not to be confused with the short story of the same name – this is essentially a series of short stories framed by a single loose narrative, rather than a full novel. In a lull between actions on the jungle world of Monthax, Colonel-Commissar Gaunt walks the line sharing a few words with his men, each conversation prompting a new story. It’s arguably a bit strange, in hindsight, for the second book in the series to be a book of short st [...]

I really enjoy the pulp fiction of the WH40K universe. I know it's not for everybody, but I truly enjoy relaxing with tales of heroic battles against the Chaos filth. I felt it was a bit tedious in its form: each chapter a reminiscence of past events through the pov of a major Ghost. There were flashes of greatness, such as Mkoll's encounter of a Dreadnought and Rawne's escape from a horde of orks, but it was a little slower than the first installment. It's great for the overall series, but had [...]

A far more concise affair than the first outing for the Ghosts. The shorter chapters and the 'flashback' segments do well to add to the flavour and flair that constant action sequences cannot do. Using book one as a launchpad 'Ghostmaker' builds on the individuals that make up Gaunt's Ghosts and allows you to see them in a larger light. Clumsy descriptive sections do however dampen the flow in a few places, yet it is not without reason and they do add to the world-building that Abnett has a flou [...]

3.5–4*Abnett psát umí. Překlad je fajn. Safra. Gaunt je geniální postava. A není jediný. Co je ale na této knížce horší, je konec. Ne, že by to bylo něco úplně příšerného, ale celá ta kniha vyeskaluje do hurá a je to věci. Trochu jako trojka u 13. legie. Ale co už, všechno ostatní je kvalitně podané, takže je to ideálně vykompenzováno. Je čas zase dohnat taky Ragnarův příběh Ale už se těším na další knihu věnovaným Gauntovým duchům. Jo, to bude ur [...]

I enjoyed the book. I like how the author delved a bit deeper in the lives/stories of some of the main Ghosts in the story. It really makes you care about the characters and hope nothing happens to them. The part that wasn't about the Ghost's history didn't appeal to me that much. Looking forward to reading #3 in the series!

Having read the second omnibus first I found the change in tone a little disconcerting; you can tell Abnett hadn't found the tone he wanted for the Ghosts at this point. However, I enjoyed learning a little more about each character and I was very pleased to not have to read about Lijah Cuu anymore.

I didn't like it as much as the first one. It's essentially a collection of short stories and they don't feel as well written as First and Only. The way they're tied together is pretty flimsy, too. But hey, it's still Abnett and it's still a lot of shooting at Chaos stuff, so yeah.

The second novel in the Warhammer 40k Gaunt's Ghosts series is actually a collection of short stories spread around the main plot of the Imperial invasion of a mysterious jungle planet. Each short story basically serves as a quick re-introduction of some of the most prominent members of Gaunt's unit (who have all already appeared in book one of this series, but did not get much individual "screen time"), focusing on their particular skills, or on their relationship with the commanding officer.

Dan Abnett write the best military science fiction. Sure it's a tie-in novel, sure it's space-science-fantasy-grimdark-whatever, but Ghostmaker, just like the other Abnett novels I've read, is amazing.Ghostmaker uses a short-story-vignette format, where alternating chapters explore the history of the titular Ghosts by focusing on short actions by specific characters, and then the other chapters focus on a single battle in the "present" that brings in elements from each of those vignettes. Normal [...]

El estilo de Dan Abnett sigue siendo muy entretenido de leer. Las batallas son directas, y para tratarse de combates en los cuales los soldados caen como moscas, la descripción suele ser más imaginativa que repetitiva.Además tiene auténticos párrafos puntuales llenos de genialidad y sentimiento.Warhammer 40.000 tiene un mundo que me arrepiento de no haber abordado antes. Aquí hay material para mil novelas.Los personajes mejoran con respecto a Los Primeros de Tanith,en parte porque se dedic [...]

Warhammer 40k universe is the nasties place to live and frankly even die. The plot was simple: drive the xenos - eldar out of the jungle planet and took with them some chaos mongrels in the process. However the main plot was lost in series of flashbacks about various campaigns of the Tanith First-and-Only unit and its commander commissar-colonel Ibram Gaunt. Inquisitor Lilith was searching for revenge on eldar plus some nice psyker pest to kill. She did not manage either. Ibram Gaunt dealt with [...]

This is almost entirely composed of the earliest of Abnett's "Gaunt's Ghosts" stories, and it shows that Abnett is finding his feet with the characters and the limitations of 40K fiction. Which is not to say they're wincingly bad; they just often will end abruptly (a problem some of the novels do have), or transition with seemingly wild abandon. The characters and the idea, however, both come through very strongly. Most of this collection is given over to character building, focusing on one to [...]

The second novel in the Gaunt's Ghost series, this book collects together some of the stories published in INFERNO! as well as some new material. Primarily 'Ghostmaker' is a character driven collection of short stories tied together with an underlying battle that is about to take place.One of Abnett's strengths when it comes to writing is character building. 'Ghostmaker' is a prime example of this as Abnett works through the various characters from Gaunt's Ghosts and explains their feelings, his [...]

So i found out after I started reading this series that Abnett wrote the first two books of the Gaunt's Ghosts books as short stories in a Black Library Magazine. I read the first book confused as to the bouncing around, then I finally got into it by the last story. This book was a number of stories which gave the reader a much broader understanding of the Ghosts themselves, whereas the first book just established who Gaunt was and the perilous nature of his universe. you get a good understandin [...]

This book is really meant to help the reader get to know Gaunt's Ghosts as individuals. By breaking the novel up into a series of short stories, each of which stars a different ghost as the hero, Abnett helps the reader become more attached to each key player in the regiment. And while the book reads like a bunch of independent short stories, Abnett is still able to tie them all together and present a unified theme behing them all. Each story starts in the present tense with Gaunt thinking about [...]
