Imperial Guard Dan Abnett. Apr 10, Joe Moley rated it liked it. However, there may be more at stake than just a planet. This was a great book in the series, with the Ghost’s being stood down on Balhaut for 2 years, they are bored, flabby and undisciplined. Meanwhile Chaos forces have inserted themselves into the planet, bloov plentiful witchcraft to hide and to hunt. A senior officer of the arch-enemy has been captured, and refuses to speak to anyone but Gaunt.

Blood Pact (Novel)
This can be seen in the fact that while a few key characters get a lot of time in the sun, numerous other Ghosts including many who played key roles in the preceding few books suddenly drop into the background. After Blood Pacts fails to assassinate their target, the forces of the Inquistion gets involved which will lead into a six sided free for all action between the Imperial Guard, The Inquistion, Blood Pact and old but loayal allies However, it seemed way to short and way to, how can I say this, fluffy?
He proves to have known of him from his work on Gereon. Following the death of Warmaster Slaydo, a splinter fleet of Chaos slipped past the picket set up by the Imperial Navy thanks to the newly appointed Warmaster Macaroth’s change of tactics. As the Ghosts liberate a country town called Cantible, Gaunt is ordered by the Commissariat to make contact with the loyalist resistance in the Gereon Untill, and leads a small team out into the wilderness to do so.
I for one hopes that Abnett will make more stops in the Sabbath Worlds. The twelfth book in the series and it does not disappoint. While Kolea keeps this secret for a long time, he does tell Tona Criid, who later tells the rest of the Gereon team in the time between Traitor General and His Last Command. What I particularly liked was the way that Dan Abnett managed to convey the characters to me very quickly and allowed me to become very at ease with them- I found that the story flowed even better because of it.
Which saw Gaunt and his Ghosts isolated in the disused mountain fortress of the Hinzerhaus, on the fortress world of Jago. While Gaunt is on Gereon and the Tanith First is left without a senior commander, the regiment is merged with a Belladon covert unit and becomes the 81st—1st Recon.
The Alliance employs methods of warfare considered obsolete and inefficient according to the modern standard tactics of the Imperial Guard. I didn’t think it was as strong as the recent “Only in Death” but I think that’s the difference between a book at the end of an arc this one which is setting up the next arc of books.
The subplot about whether this was the last stop for the First and Only and they were to be retired seemed a little far fetched, especially knowing this is Book 1 of a new story arc for the Ghosts.
But I feel that since the last few books in the Lost story arc AoC for example the stories are somehow Two years on, however, the Ghosts are becoming restless from the lack of combat and purpose. The second is a fictional history of the Crusade, from the beginnings of the crusade 10 years before the setting of the first novel to a point just after Sabbat Martyrproviding an overview of the crusade as a whole.
I hate you Dan Abnett!
Balhaut is also the place where the dead are commemorated and its industry revolves around both this and catering to the Imperial forces stationed there. After the success of their desperate blooc to Salvation’s Reach, Colonel-Commisar Gaunt and the Tanith First race to the strategically vital forge world of Urdesh, besieged by the brutal armies of Anarch Sek.

Blood Pact – Dan Abnett
Nov 09, Troy rated it really liked it Shelves: Only in Death featured a big set-piece battle, and nicely, Abnett has gone for a starkly different setting and story line, and we meet the Ghosts two years later, after a long posting away from the action.
But before the prisoner can speak, the base is attacked by enemy agents, set on killing the prisoner before he can talk.
Smaller action although still brutal. Pacf capital city of Tanith — surrounded by a giant wall, presumably to keep the nalwood trees from moving into the city — was Tanith Magna. Abnett stretches I think to far and the story feels dead as the last two books demonstrated. Ugh, but I love it.
