Path of the Warrior (Path of the Eldar Series) ebook

by Gav Thorpe


Path of the Warrior book.

Path of the Warrior book. Path of the Warrior is almost seven years old now and I confess that in all this time, I wasn’t much interested in reading a Warhammer 40,000 tale from the perspective of the Eldar. I enjoyed reading about the Eldar at the time, rather than through their perspective.

Book 1 of the Path of the Eldar. Gav pulls off a stylistic tour de force that made me gasp when I realised what was happening. When the eldar artist Korlandril feels the call to war, he walks the Path of the Warrior and joins the Striking Scorpions. As his craftworld is drawn into war with the Imperium, Korlandril finds that once he has begun walking that path, it may not be easy to leave i. EAD IT BECAUSE It's the start of a unique series that really drills down into who the eldar are, and how their rigid path structure shapes their society and their people – for better or worse. The Exarchs speak in hexameter triplets.

Gav Thorpe has been rampaging across the worlds of Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 for many years as both an author and games developer. His works include the hugely popular Angels of Darkness, the Last Chancers series and the ongoing epic tale of The Sundering.

After the Fall of the Eldar and the birth of Slaanesh, the surviving Craftworld Eldar realized that their emotions were too potent to be allowed to run free. To control their emotional extremes, the craftworlds formulated the Paths of the Eldar, a series of goals and occupations that would leave the Eldar emotionally regimented to avoid falling prey to She Who Thirsts. Individually, these paths are reminiscent of an autistic obsession.

The book focuses on an Eldar of the Alaitoc Craftworld who finds himself needing to follow the path of the warrior, as most Eldar do. .At the core the book is about the Eldar psyche and Gav Thorpe does an amazing job here.

The book focuses on an Eldar of the Alaitoc Craftworld who finds himself needing to follow the path of the warrior, as most Eldar do at one time or another. The story follows this character as he becomes a Striking Scorpion. It’s hard to say much more without giving away the story, but it has a few twists you don’t expect, which I’ve found pretty rare in any Black Library book. This is a race that has endured a lot, and their lives are always at risk

Path of the Warrior written by Gav Thorpe is the first book in the Path of the Eldar Series. It follows Korlandril, starting from the Path of the Artisan, to and through the Path of the Warrior as a Striking Scorpion.

There is a thing about reading the stories published by the Black Library. Nearly all it's focus (which is understandable) is set on the ever-at-war human empire of the Imperium. I am a newcomer to this universe but it is only with this slice of pulp fiction about the Eldar by Gav Thorpe that truly won me over.

Now, I am not going to go on and say this is a literary masterpiece, cause it's not. It is pulpy, filled with backdrop and few memorable characters, but Gav Thorpe's poetic prose and deep thinking is addictive. A real page turner, I am a slow reader but Korlandril's (the main character) story is a classic cut and dry format of science fiction with vivid description and tons of drama and action. Not to mention I loved the openings which showed the Eldar's religion, and how much fluff it brought (and it does not get ib the way of the story, it gives it depth, a strong foundation.) For Warhammer 40k fans and lovers of sci fi action, you really should give this first book of the triology a try.

My only real complaint was that mid way through the story Korlandril almost ceases character development and a lot of the other characters I liked barely had their time to shine, but being a short story writer myself, I see why Gav did this and the play out was damn near perfect.

Believe me, you don't want to pass on Korlandril's dramatic journey in The Path of The Warrior.

4 out of 5 Stars
Heri
I really enjoyed this book, however, the writing doesn't stack up to what you see in the Horus Heresy, which is the only other frame of reference that I have for 40k novels. Still good for those interested in Eldar lore and who want to get more into the hobby.
Dori
Interesting departure from the normal space marine fare in the warhammer 40k world. Follows an eldar protagonist on his personal path in life, which ties into two subsequent books following other characters with whom he has relationships.
Thordibandis
I read the book in about three days and I enjoyed it. It has it's slow parts which leaves you craving the action forcing you to read on. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the Warhammer/Warhammer 40,000 franchise.
Todal
The book was fine, but fairly surface level and containing sometimes overly strong hints as to what is to happen.

Overall though, it's an entertaining read.

After devouring this book I can't wait to see what the next two books in the series cover. I would advise (for those who own it) keeping the codex nearby when reading this book (not because Gav uses jargon) in order to appreciate how accurate the image of Eldar life this book creates is in reference to the codex fluff. Character names are similar to eachother and hard to say and so easy to forget if no concious effort is made to pronounce them properly. If you are interested in the Eldar or just Sci-Fi in general, read this book. Gav Thorpe takes Heinlein's Starship Trooper and transplants it onto an Eldar Craftworld with tremendous success.

if your a fan of the 40k universe this is the best eldar book out there if your not a fan of 40k then you should become one
Bought this as a gift. It arrived quickly and in great condition. It was better than I thought it would be.
