I much liked the first volume about Ahriman’s exile and hiding by John French. This was largely because Ahriman came across as a believable character and what happened to him was at least plausible. Some traces of this are still present in this book but the plot is much weaker. The main character and his behaviours are much less credible and most of the other characters are barely drawn. I will attempt to explain both of these elements during the rest of this review while trying hard to avoid spoilers.

The character of Ahriman is still interesting at times, with his mixture of guilt, hope and ruthless determination. He tried to save his Legion from damnation but only made things worse. He still hopes, thousands of years later, that he can set things right. He tries very hard to do so, by whatever means and at whatever cost.

So far, so good, with the character appearing almost sympathetic (that is having what we would call “human feelings”) at times, like Demski-Bowden’s Talos of the Night Lords or Iskandar Kahyon, also from the Thousand Sons but a staunch supporter of Abaddon. In the case of Ahriman and in this episode, this is tempered by the character’s extraordinary arrogance and belief in his own aptitudes. Ahriman is shown as knowing it all in advance and never making any mistake, although how he manages to do so remains – at least for me – somewhat of a mystery. This also jars with the previous episode where Ahriman is unsurprisingly very much self-doubting and full of guilt given the harm he did to his Legion when trying to save them. Here, there is not even a shred of doubt and only passing gift as he sacrifices and/or betrays just about all of the characters that he supposedly hold dear.

Disappointing read. not a scratch on the first novel in the series. Too much 'thought' dialogue between characters
