Eisenhorn vs Ravenor: Pariah (Book Review)
The trouble when talking about Pariah is, well, it's very existence. A great legacy hangs over the whole book, meaning that even when it stands out on its own you might be left feeling disappointed. It's like that lesser sequel you'll see to a smash hit, Psycho II for example. On it's own and judged by its own merits it's solid, perhaps even excellent. However, because it's so intrinsically tied to something far greater, with knowledge of that work required to enjoy it, it becomes extremely hard to appreciate the work on its own merits.
