This review is from: The Lost (Warhammer 40,000: Gaunt's Ghosts Omnibus) (Paperback)
Well dear reader if you are reading this i can tell you that the 3rd gaunts ghosts omnibus is amazing. If you have read my other reviews i have fallen for the sabbat worlds and adore reading about gaunt and his crew. The writing is about the charecters and how there may well be only war in the future but as human as they may be the guard can pull themselves up from the hell going on around them and sally forth so to speak. The founding (omnibus 1) sets the benchmark with new charecters. Omnibus 2 the saint builds on this with some fabulous stories and brings in new charecters and kills old ones off. This third omnibus shows gaunts ghosts true grit and determination with the best battles and stealth missions yet for the boys and girls of the tanith first and only. Like the saint you could just pick this up and get straight in but a knowledge of the men and women in these books really does improve the read. (spoiler alert- sorics story ends in the lost and it was quite emotional for me-damn the inquisiton to hell!).
Looking at other reviews i can see your point about chaos astartes being over matched by imperial guard is impossible. this happens early on in the first part of this omnibus 'the traitor general'.I do agree but it mixes it up a bit and does make for a good read so unless your one of those people that update wikipedia every day then this will not bother you. Infact if you can get past that battle then as far as im concerned that was the only daft bit in this otherwise awesome book. 'his last command' and 'only in death' are monumental reads for different reasons. his last command is a gaunt story in my opinion and leads well from the cliff hanger ending of traitor general. only in death had me glued to this book as it had the best battles so far (non stop litterally)and an ending that equalled trooper cuu's in the saint for that 'about time they explained that' and ' no really thats awesome' feeling.
The best gaunts ghosts so far and i just dont think only in death can be topped. Flippin mind blowin stuff....buy now.
