Josh Reynolds: Clonelord

Leírhatatlanul nagyszerű és lenyűgöző egy regény.
Fabius Bile mint mindig most is egyszerűen zseniális. Josh Reynolds remek munkát végzett ezzel a karakterrel. Sőt egyszerűen olyannyira sikerült összehoznia, hogy az már szinte irodalmi magasságokban van. A vége több mint hihetetlen volt, egyszerűen csak néztem, ahogy az író lezárta a könyv szinte összes kérdéses történetszálát.
Nem nagy spoiler, hogy a könyvben szerepelnek a necron faj képviselői is. Ugyanis ezt az információt már maga a borító is ellövi, amiért szerintem elég kár. Persze sokat gondolkodtam, hogy mégis miért és hogyan fognak benne szerepelni necron-ok, és teljesen meglepődtem az eredményen. Nagyon átgondoltan és nagyszerűen vannak benne reprezentálva.
Kihagyhatatlan egy regény minden W40k rajongónak. Nem gondoltam volna, hogy felülmúlja az előző epizódot, és azt sem hogy azt teljesen túl fogja szárnyalni. De most ez történt.

'What fate? Fate is the name the ignorant give to causality. It is a factor, not of cosmic rigour, but of simple action and reaction. One made a choice, and all that happened after sprang from that choice. Ripples in a pond. But those ripples were not preordained. They could not be.'
To believe in fate was to resign oneself to the limits of one's existence. Something Fabius Bile had never been able to do. Fate said he should have succumbed to the blight that ravaged his body. Fate said he should have sunk deep into the mire of depravity that had claimed his brothers. Fate said he should have been dead a thousand times over. 'Yet here I stand, unbowed, if not unbent'.

Once, she had admired them – to her, they had seemed the apex of the universe. Angels wrought in the shape of men. When they had come to her little agri world, seeking slaves and supplies, she had gone with them willingly, as a bride to her groom, draped in the blood and skin of her family. She had offered up the hearts of kin, and been made a serf for a Legion that had forgotten what such things were for. She had worn a golden torc about her throat, and endured pain and pleasure in such gross quantity, that one had bled into the other, until it was impossible to tell which was which.
She had sacrificed a life of grey drudgery on the altar of sensation, and remade herself beneath the loving gaze of a god. Her old life had offered her but one path – Governer's daughter to Governor's wife to Govenor's mother, and finally, to Governor's widow. A flat circle of placid moments. But now, her life was a web of possibility, with a million strands. That alone was worth all that she had endured, and would yet endure. A gift from the gods.
