Read full description of the books:
Andy Chambers has been around in the 40k universe for as long as I can remember, and he's written some fantastic material in that time. I picked up this story because I am reading the Path of the Dark Eldar and it is the first story in the omnibus. I wasn't sure what to expect, having only read one other story of his in regards to the Dark Eldar.
This story is... not much. The bonded pair who are our protagonists for this tale don't really ever get flushed out. They are nothing more than skilled warrior-assassins sent on a mission, and that's pretty much it. Even between their interactions, they don't grow as a characters, rather they just exist to push the action forward, seeming to react to everything rather than being proactive. This makes for a very uninteresting story, despite there being a lot of action in the story.
And the dialogue between the pair is hard to deal with, often feeling stilted and lackluster. Here are beings that enjoy pain, have a sense of duty to their master, and who are bonded to each other like no other. And yet, their conversations back and forth are... boring, often nothing more than one line. Any and all sympathy or relation to them that could have been formed by the reader is snatched away because of this, leaving behind two characters that honestly, I could have cared less about.
Still, the action in this short story was done pretty well. The action scenes flowed from one to the next really well, and kept things going. It also had a nice, if brief, look at the webway and how it was formed and the dimensions within, which was nice. But the Dark Eldar feel that can be found in Chambers' other works is missing here, which is sad as it would have added some much needed flavor to this tale.
In the end, worth reading if you are going to delve into the Path of the Dark Eldar, but otherwise not really worth reading unless you want something nice and short to pass away a few minutes.
