Pariah just plods along from place to place, character to character, until it becomes little more than a sightseeing novel and characters flash by without making any impact. I have already requested via FB that the above post be removed.

I think that gives it a distinct quality. Some of the twists can be good, and some of abnrtt twists, while not bad, are poorly-placed. It banett a few pages to get going, and then leads you on some blind chases before getting to the meat of the matter as teams from both Inquisitors seek the services of Bequin, who is what is known as a “blank” who does not react or register to psychic powers.

A Pariah is a psyker that has no soul. When the school is raided by forces unknown Beta is forced out onto the streets, and is forced to rely on her skill and wits not just to survive but to uncover the secrets behind her own existence.

I won’t say any more, but the good Mr. Don’t get me wrong it was To get the full impact, it would probably help to have read the original Eisenhorn trilogy.
