If this is what’s going on, then I am extremely disappointed. Even the Orks are better narrators in that respect! I get it yea elves in space and all but Now I know the Eldar have a lot more extreme emotions than humans, but the way the author tells the story it never feels realistic.

Path of the Warrior

Now, I am not going to go on and say this is patth literary masterpiece, cause it’s not. Fantastic novel, rich in every way. Not much on battling either, with just one short skirmish in the middle, and one long drawn out final battle, though it seemed that most of the time the characters were waiting to get the okay to go into battle.

Warhammer 40,Path of the Eldar 1. I guess what they are trying to say is that maybe there is more to being a warrior than just combat? Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. The book didn’t have a plot, rather it was a collection of incidents that didn’t have much to do with one another.

I want to see co-operation between several Aspects at the same time. Retrieved from ” http: At a certain point however it just got messy with names and I felt like I had to take notes just to figure out how each name related to Korlandril.

Will not read the next one cause Thiriana seems awful. But when his best friend makes a critic for his statue and the poet, Tirianna, rejects him, he becomes a Warrior. Thorpe does an amazing job of illuminating how the Eldar really work: I will admit that with the Eldar being such a contemplative race it works easier than I think it would otherwise.

This was his book, so I spent most of my time outside of the fluff rolling my eyes at this immature brat who never really got his comeuppance. Interesting departure from the normal space marine fare in the warhammer 40k world. To combat their reversal of fortunes and bring their lives back on track so they could survive in a much more hostile galaxy, the species divided its communal life along the guidelines of the Path.

Because I do not have an extensive past in Warhammer 40k, I cannot comment much upon the book, but in terms of plot, I found myself somewhat disappointed at the conclusion of the book. Gav Thorpe seemed more interested in describing fashion than fights.

His dry manner of writing should have been perfect for the eldar who thorpf upon self-restraint and control but he dropped the ball here.

It features Korlandril, a rather self-centred Eldar following the Path of the Artist at the start of the novel, and follows his journey as he discovers death and rage and learns to put on his war mask.

All in all it was a very good read, much better than the last eldar book I read by G. It is when Korlandril becomes lost in the lust of battle that the story loses impact and becomes merely a series of battle scenes.
