As usual for the GG serie in the Daniverse at the beginning we have an excerpt as to the events that transpire in the book. If fans would be very curious indeed - they would closely check the year, which is mentioned in the blurb. It is one of the nicest hints done by Dan Abnett.
Dan starts his book, which is number fourteen in the serie reminder just to pinpoint the face that even after the previous 13 books author is still able to get our full attention with just a prologue , with an amazing bang - we all know how 'Salvation's Reach' has ended.
So to see that 'Prologue' titled as a 'Corpse' is a nice touch from the author: Human ship.
The Warmaster (Gaunt's Ghosts, #14) by Dan Abnett
Imperial human ship. Cold thing from which life-heat has bled. Corpse-wreck, broken, inert, adrift Highness Sir Armaduke'.
What follows is one of the best descriptive scene that was ever written in BL club. It shows anew why a lot of us adorn Abnett's prose and style. The smallest details in the environment make you believe that you are actually where, right at the stage with your beloved characters and their feelings.
Without spoilers - what's happens next is one of the best tricks as to how fix the time contradictions. Which again it shows the brilliance of an author. Eventually as anyone could expect from the book about GG we get to the 'main' front-line. In our case it's a suffering world of Urdesh. What follows next is one of the most intriguing and interesting storylines about a regiment which goes through struggle of war losses, command changes and trying to find their place in the 'new' universe.
Universe which is not kind to the poor Astra Militarum guardsmen. This time on the other hand to the boiling mix author has added a Crusade High command with it's own ambition, glory hounds, politics and intrigues. In what book 14 of the serie is different from the titles from 1 to 11, is that starting with 'Blood Pact' Dan Abnett started one storyline to tell in 4 books. Previous titles of GG books were essentially self-contained. It was only with the last Arc 'Victory', beginning with 'Blood Pact', that he decided to make them more connected for a change.
Essentially it is a 'one' mega-novel across four volumes. Daniverse descriptiveness Urdesh - is a character in itself. One particular scene with the docking ship in the stratosphere is one of the best you will ever read in sci-fi.
Dan Abnett didn't forget anything. Weather effects, magnetism, human reaction - it's all here made into the absolute.
Urdesh - a war ravaged world shine in all it's glory and scientific horror. Small scenes like the one where Ghosts are explained to about the coverage from the snipers shows how belligerent and struggling Urdeshians are.
And who could doubt them - their world change hands a lot during the Last Sabbat Worlds Crusade. Dan was able to give us a long forgotten view on the enemy in all it's horror, by doing almost nothing to show us the enemy.
Yeap - that's Dan Abnett , he could do that. Don't get me wrong - there are a lot of fighting and enemy soldiers for show. Even our beloved stalk tanks are back.
But we does not have a 'defined' Chaos POV here. First time in a long while since the times of Sabbat Martyr - 7th book in the serie we see an enemy 'fleet' in action. V'heduak is a masterful creation of an author. Now we saw at last as to how the enemy get's to the world's they invade.
And what their 'sailors' do while they are waiting for the world to be conquered. As for the description of warfare.
As expected - Dan created a vivid picture of death, bravery and destruction. The minor issue is - it is too few. Novel is more a political beast than a warfare centric story. As expected The Warmaster drops us back into the cauldron of a regiment on war footing, with all the attending 'human train', which is kinda normal for a regiment during a Napoleonic wars.
We met the same command structure we knew from the previous books the ones which survived of course and the same grunts from the bottom. And everyone on every level of the regiment and it's 'relatives' suffer from the loss they experienced during Salvation's Reach incursion.
For some it is lost friends, for some almost a family members, for some it is a 'death of hope'. But Dan is indeed an amazing and brilliant author. So he glued it all with new 'environment' and 'unexpected hope for the best'.
But most of all - this time author gave the main stage to shine for the newcomers. Pasha, Zuckova, Spetnin, Dalin, Felix, Maddalena and a lot of poor grunts given a view in and out of fire. In his showcase of the regiment Dan Abnett mentioned a lot of army and social problems from our today's life. Sexism, brutality, unfairness, stupidity, struggling with the loss of a friend or relative, loneliness, dominant opinions of the society that makes you wonna cry and die in the corner - all mentioned in one scope or another.
A lot of major and secondary characters - as with each GG book goes through a lot of pain, suffering and loss. But this time Abnett as a real wizard gives them all something to cheer for. Shattering the cheering mood 2 pages after. That's usual Dan Abnett for you. And that's one of the main reasons a lot of us 'fans' love and adorn his writing. Minor spoilers ahead. Person of Warmaster Macaroth has been shown at last. And it was a hilarious experience.
Because he is an absolutely 'human' being and totally different to the figures the likes of Macharius. Never expected 'Warmaster' to be like that - 'a small, cumbersome, tired and grandpa character'. Also, what Dan did again on the 'Oskar' level - he created the same 'evil' character we haven't seen since Cuu's devilness in the flesh.
You need to read that novel - to start despising a character on 'that' level. Especially at one moment followed up with a character death.
Which reminds me to mention that it is a 'proper' GG Abnett's novel. By proper I mean that 'Nobody is safe from the Grim Reaper'. With his usual eagerness Dan Abnett easily kills your beloved character, not shedding a tear ; And now to the issues I had with the novel. That's just my personal opinion - so I do not suggest that you don't gonna like described below.
There are no 'ideal' writers in the world, who will create everything 'right', without even 1 minor issue. All the stuff which would be mentioned is indeed a list of minor issues. But they do exist.
What is not so good with the Warmaster First of all - even though Dan's great 'descriptiveness', the beginning chapters up to the arrival on Urdesh were too streched. Scenes of boarding actions and actually getting through space to Urdesh took too long. If we add stories from the 'Sabbat Crusade' here, which took place after the 'Salvation Reach' - it take even longer.
They are 'rushed'. Here it is vise versa. It is the beginning that is too long for it's own good. Second point - which in my opinion has place in the most of the Gaunt Ghosts novels are the luck or fate. Then some Ghosts or characters are getting to die, some universal force will save them from destruction.
Space Marine arrival no disrespect for Dan - but that 'trio' was definitely redundant here , another regiment, other enemy, high command etc. Usually I do a full spoiler free review - but I can't do that here. Because some events are 'exactly' an 'issue' here. Minor spoilers ahead - do not proceed further if you haven't read the book Third point is based on a characters.
Saint Sabbat is mentioned several times throughout the book - but we never saw her in it. Gaunt never met her in The Warmaster in person. And all mentions of the Saint are grounded to: Which is kind of disappointing. Because a lot of us were expecting to see her and Milo for quite a long time since 'Sabbat Martyr'.
Same could be said about a person of Mabbon Etogaur, the one we liked by now and have solid respect as to his professionalism, - is quickly dropped from the plot. Dropped so simply on an order from HQ, which define belief. Especially after all GG went through to keep him safe. Another of the 'character problems' of a narrative list is Gaunt's 'son' Felyx.
Without major spoiler - in my personal opinion it was a mistake to do what Abnett did with him. Not because it was a bad decision. Quite contrary. It is wrong because of 'how it was added into the story'. We had the character for a full previous novel Salvation's Reach and nobody see 'that' coming and where weren't any hints about 'that' reveal. It's like author has decided to change something on a fly, without a solid background to it.
Now we should pray that 'Anarch', the last book in the 'Victory' arc - would be written quickly and released in Because with 'that' kind of ending - waiting till the next book is a 'seven circles of hell'. BIG Spoilers ahead. Last warning - 'ending' spoilers ahead, can't skip them - or my point would be nil without them. Why Sons of Sek did retreat - they didn't get the stones, they didn't killed the High Command of the Crusade? With horrible casualties - but they were at the point of breaking through and destroying Imperial command structure once and for all.
And that's years of rebuilding it - years in which Archenemy and Sanguinary Tribes under the united command would get back everything they lost so far. What's happening with Anakwanar Sek - he was always a rational and genius being? Great tactician and one of the biggest boogeyman of the Sabbat Worlds? Why he use his troops as a diletant? What really happened to Mkoll? Another miraculous save in the last moment?

Who by the way has 2 sons not a son and a daughter - I see what you did here Dan. Archenemy covets here, she sees the future, anyone getting to her dies or guard her with their own life. Is she part daemon now, is she somehow connected with Anakwanar Sek? Having part of his soul inside her? Is she a full alpha class psyker? If so - wild theory but maybe she is one of the kids of Pater Sin? And covered herself since Sabbat Martyr?
That ending to The Warmaster totally ruined every produced theory so far and totally turned everything upside down. But which again shows that Dan Abnett is a brilliant authors, whose books are totally worth the wait. Which suffers from trying to be more than it could. Don't get me wrong - the book is awesome, but that ending - geeze.
I would have definitely prefer to have a defined ending like 'Guns of Tanith'; 'Sabbat Martyr' or 'Only in death' instead of 'this'. The patience till the next book would be impossible. But - it is Gaunt Ghosts, regiment we all love and longed for. It is a story which should be definitely read by all fans - because it's totally worth your time. I give 'Warmaster' 4,5 out of 5. If not for the 'issues' I mentioned above - it's definitely would have got a 10 out of 5. Dan Abnett - you did it sir.
It is a book we waited for, longed for and counted days, months and years till it's release. And slowly suffer till the release of Anarch. After all - life is so unfair ; Dec 04, Andy rated it liked it. As always with Abnett, it's a great read about more than just the shooting.
Having waited years for something that feels like half of a book really doesn't sit well. Here's hoping the next one actually has an ending. Apr 12, Simon Clark rated it really liked it Shelves: The Warmaster is the Gaunt's Ghosts novel with the least warfare in it, and I think this makes it one of the strongest entries in the series.
The series has long been effectively a soap opera in spaaaaaaaaaaaace, with a whole lot of combat thrown in to keep the interest of readers. Abnett is, in my mind, the best author in the Black Library arsenal, and in particular excels at depicting combat.
However here he shows how well he can write a labyrinthine knot of plots. With just one book left in t The Warmaster is the Gaunt's Ghosts novel with the least warfare in it, and I think this makes it one of the strongest entries in the series. With just one book left in the series, there are many plot threads just waiting to be resolved, in ways that are not entirely clear.
What's also clear from this book is that no one is safe Let's be real, if you're not already a fan of the series you're not going to read this book. But you absolutely should go back and read the preceding novels and then read this one, because they're seriously good fun. And in particular The Warmaster is a riveting read, with multiple plot twists from left field, and more than a few gut punches along the way.
I'm desperate for Abnett to finish Anarch so I get closure on this series. And can re-read them all in preparation. Dec 02, Alexander rated it it was amazing. Holy thrones.
