Gaunt's Ghosts is a series of novels written by Dan Abnett. It is a military science fiction series set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe

Gaunt's Ghosts is a series of novels written by Dan Abnett. It is a military science fiction series set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. As of 2019, the series spans 16 novels which document the efforts of the Tanith First, a highly skilled yet unappreciated light infantry regiment of the Imperial Guard, during the Sabbat Worlds Crusade. The protagonist is Colonel-Commissar Ibram Gaunt, one of the few political commissars of the Imperium to be officially awarded command of a regiment.

For three days, since the drop-ships landed them, there had been no other sound except the squelch of entrenching tools as work parties filled plastic sacks. No other sound except the chirrup of a billion insects.

Ghostmaker is the second novel in the Gaunt's Ghosts novel series by Dan Abnett

Ghostmaker is the second novel in the Gaunt's Ghosts novel series by Dan Abnett. As battle approaches, Gaunt walks the lines, raising his men's spirits and remembering their most heroic deeds - and the tragedies that have dogged Gaunt's Ghosts from the day of their founding on lost Tanith. The day that Gaunt became known as the Ghostmaker.

This is the second Gaunt's Ghosts book by Dan Abnett. This book was formed from a bunch of short stories that appeared in Inferno! magazine and I believe they were actually written before the first book. This book deals with the back story of a lot of the main characters, we learn their thoughts and emotions and what makes them human, and what makes them "real" in a sea of billions of Imperial Guardsmen.

For more than a hundred centuries the Emperor has sat immobile on the Golden Throne of Earth. He is the master of mankind by the will of the gods, and master of a million worlds by the might of his inexhaustible armies. He is a rotting carcass writhing invisibly with power from the Dark Age of Technology.

The Gaunt's Ghosts series follows the adventures of Colonel-Commissar Ibram Gaunt and the Astra Militarum regiment called the Tanith First and Only, better known as "Gaunt's Ghosts," as they take part in the Sabbat Worlds Crusade battling to free the Sabbat Worlds sector from the forces of Chaos

The tide of war begins to turn in the Sabbat Worlds Crusade as beleaguered Imperial forces begin a fierce counter-offensive against the dark armies of Chaos. For Commissar Ibram Gaunt and the Tanith First-and-Only, it is the beginning of a battle that may force them to sacrifice not only their lives, but their very souls.

Before I begin, I want to explain that 4 stars out of 5 is the highest rating I am willing to give. For me to give a 5 out of 5 rating for any book, it needs to be singularly profound in the effect it has on me. Since this novel is part of a series (as yet incomplete), I am not prepared to give it such recognition. However, I wholeheartedly endorse Dan Abnett as one of the best, if not THE BEST writer for Games Workshop and the Black Library.
"Ghostmaker" is the second installment of the Gaunt's Ghost series and to me, it seems like the single most important book in the series in terms of introducing us to certain signature characters. There are flashbacks to key events between Gaunt and each of these characters. It helps cement their place within the regiment and their unique relationship with the Colonel-Commissar. The main story taking place in the book is also noteworthy. You will be given a glimpse into the Inquisition and inquisitor Lilith, as well as, a first person perspective of one of WH40K's popular Xenos races, the Craftworld Eldar. The descriptions of war, internecine feuds, and general grist and gristle of a universe driven by incessant conflict will provide intriguing and engaging reading for everyone who appreciates such literary fare. If this is the first book you read from the series, I am sure you will end up ordering or otherwise trying to lay your hands on other books from the series as soon as you finish reading the final sentence on the final page of this one. It is that good. And who ever said more of a good thing was bad, eh?

Unlike most sequels, this book easily stands alone. Portions predate the first novel and the characters are well fleshed out, without relying on information from the previous book.
It is essentially a collection of short stories, linked together as flashbacks from a current situation. One story for each for the main players of the "inner circle" of Ghosts, and then a "finale" that finishes up the situation from which the flashbacks take place.
The format is both a strength and a weakness. It makes it possible to read a "chunk" at a time and put it down while reading something else without getting lost, and as observed above, reading the previous work is not necessary to the understanding of this one. However, some of the same expositionary material is repeated (thankfully not verbatim) in several stories. (My personal opinion is that they were written seperately before being linked together.)
Having a working knowledge of the Warhammer 40,000 universe will greatly add to the enjoyment of this novel, but is not absolutely necessary.
The quality of writing would have earned a "4" had it not been for the repetitive exposition. All-in-all a solidly entertaining bit of fluff.

This book, a collection of mainly short-stories with one slightly longer story to finish, is a nicely written piece of military sci-fi.

I was not happy with First and Only due to the rather awkward insertion of origin pieces of the various plot devices, but that tactic appears to have vanished in this work. The use of Lilith as a plot-resolving device in the last piece did seem rather abrupt, but what do I know.

Well worth reading if this is your genre.

Note that I have no knowledge of W40k universe outside of what I have read in abnett's novels. It really doesn't enter into the work in a overt or forced fashion as far as I can tell.

All in all, a great book

The second book in the Gaunt's Ghosts series loses a little of steam from where the first leaves off but still manages to finish strong. The first two-thirds of this book are comprised of short stories that further develop some of the more colorful characters of the Tannith First and Only. This fleshing out of the chacters seemed a little forced in some of the stories while others were quite good and I expect it will pay dividends down the road. The final third of the book picks up where the first book left off and leaves you hungry for more(thankfully Necropolis awaits). I did not enjoy it as much as I did the first book but it is written very well and definetly still worth reading.
Zieryn
Not as good as the first novel, this is actually a series of short stories, with each one highlighting a certain member of the Ghosts. Some were excellent, and some were just OK, and the book overall was worth the read. It was just that it did not feel like one of Mr. Abnett's better efforts.

For those new to 40k the Gaunt's Ghosts series are some of the best books to read. The grunt level warfare will offer a familiarity while slowly immersing you in the more imaginative aspects of 40k. This book can now be found in Gaunt's Ghosts: The Founding that contains the first three Gaunt's Ghosts novels. Highly recommended.

One of my favorite War hammer 40K series! Great addition to your collection!
The book arrived in time, and did not have any signs of wear and tear. As earlier reviews have indicated, this is a series of short stories revolving around the exploits of the Tanith First And Only during its early days (before the events in the book NECROPOLIS).
