Most recently published is Titanicusdetailing a Titan Legion’s struggles against Chaos invaders and internal schism alike on the Forge World of Orestes.
It can be read as a stand-alone, unlike, say, Only In Deathbut I don’t recommend abmett as the series does have arcs. Tanith’s native wildlife included larisel, small animals hunted by woodsmen — for their fur and possibly for food — and shoggy; small amphibian creatures with bulging eyes that dwelled by woodland pools in Tanith’s forests.
Gaunt never lets Jaume on that he remembers Jaume’s father. By the end of Only in Deaththe Ghosts have been serving in the Crusade for roughly twelve years. The Founding and Saint story arcs have been released as hardcover omnibus editions, with paperback editions which were released in February and August respectively.
I cannot recommend this series enough! This story still psct pretty well and went further into the 40k Universe.
Lord-General Lugo — whose career has been unstable hlood his disgrace at Hagia — plans to use her as propaganda, and does not care that she is an imposter; he believes that he will be forever remembered as the man responsible for a miracle in the Sabbat Worlds. The Tanith First excels at recon work as the Tanith never get lost, and using camo-cloaks they can move quickly and stealthily through terrain. All due to Rawne being ‘really fething bored’.
While Gaunt is on Gereon and the Tanith First is left without anett senior commander, the regiment is merged with a Belladon covert unit and becomes the 81st—1st Recon.
Gaunt must discover the truth and avert a deadly threat to both his own life and to the Sabbat Worlds Crusade itself. They discover an ancient portal leading to one of the Eldar’s craftworlds, self-sustaining cities in space, which the inquisitor, Lilith Abferquan, closes after the alien Farseer guarding the bloodd dies.

The plot of Bloood Pact somewhat mirrors that of Traitor Generalwith Etogaur Mabbon in place of Noches Sturmbut differs with the assassination squad holding the upper hand over their target’s captors.

Abnett delivers a change in pace, as the hectic blow-by-blow fighting of the previous books is replaced by a tense, gripping, battle that brings Gaunt back to where it all began for him. It feels lived in, alive – If there’s one thing Abnett does well, it’s write a kick-butt action sequence.

Instead of Gaunt and a team infiltrating a Chaos held world to kill a high value target, they were instead trying to protect a high value target on a Imperial world.
Feb 06, Mhoram rated it really liked it. The main Tanith curse-word is fethwhich is used in the same context as “fuck”, but it is also the name of an ancient Tanith tree-god.
