Anakwanar Strangely and i think iam a loner in that - but i really really want for Criid, Kolea and Dalin to die in the next book. I do not like their storyline at all - this lost family -parents thing - meh, disappointing.

Anakwanar Thank you Phoebus. Done.

Phoebus Anakwanar,

The quoting function works like this:

[quote.]Your text goes here.[/quote]

Ensure there is no period in the first quote bracket.

Your text should look like this:
The quote function makes it easier for us to read your posts.
Not to be a smartass, but, AMAZINGLY, there's even a "quote" button at the bottom right of each post you want to reply to. Once you get to the reply window, you can section off the original post with as many quote brackets as you'd like, allowing you to respond either to the post as a whole, or to specific paragraphs within said post.

And we all lived happily ever after!

Sequere_me_in_Tenebras How about Captain Daur? Ok he's maybe not a major character, but the pretty boy needs to be knocked off. I'm hoping it's not Rawne...

Anakwanar Ah forget to mention - all this family lines - G and son, Dalin, Yoncy its beginning to @[email protected] (in good sense) like Sharps novels. Abnett should stop building this family clans - because its uninteresting and it should be brutal - there are no happiness in W40K

Why is she the most despicable character to you? She's the ex hive ganger, who took it upon herself in a time of war to look after two (presumably)orphaned children. Became a Ghost, an incredibly talented and able one at that. Deservedly rose up through the ranks as an respected and talented commander. Is fiercely loyal to Gaunt and the regiment. And generally a very sympathetic character I feel. I'm interested to know why you dislike her so much.
- very simple -in my humble opinion she is the most unreal character - her emotions in all novels (except Blood Pact) was very blant and unimpressive. And as you wrote - there are nothing interesting in her - a simple female guardsman in W40K. Rawne, Bonin, bASKEVYL, Mkoll, Beltayn etc/etc. thats the characters who shows true emotions and thats why we love them.

Phoebus On the one hand, you could have a two-for-one special... Meryn pushes the ultimate button and takes out Banda, because she tried to warn Rawne. This, in turn, sends Rawne into killing mode. So long, Meryn!

On the other hand, now that I think about it, if Abnett managed to make it work so that Meryn somehow ALSO took out a vengeful Rawne in the middle of a battlefield situation... and set it up so that he was an even BIGGER antagonist in the novel after that... Man, that would be a coup! I'd hate every second of it, but wow!

See both mine and the others for Meryn. We all know he's fucked now, with his scam exposed and his days are numbered. But it's all about how long it will be before he dies and how many people he will take down with him. I'm still not sure whether he will be killed in this next novel, killing someone else in the process, or if he will survive the book(killing someone else) and then go on like that.

Whilst I like the idea, I don't want to see him turn into a Cuu. Cuu and his arc were brilliant, everyone loathed him, everyone knew he was trouble, and he just kept surviving and killing off beloved Ghosts. But much as I hated him, it was just excellent. I'm just worried if Meryn is taken in this direction, then it might feel too much like a repeat. Having said that, I'm confident Abnett won't make that mistake.
