You really don't have to be a Warhammer player in order to enjoy these books, but if you are, Abnett is more addicting than any drug. While reading through the non-stop visceral action of this book and sorting through the political intrigue of both sides of a war theater Abnett's always delivers what you want whether you know it or not. After finishing one of his books you know things ended up exactly how they had to and all the characters feel real and complete even though he has so many of them in this series. The only thing I could complain about is that his characters are saved by luck so much that sometimes you lose the sense of real danger for them. But be careful with that because Abnett might catch you with your guard down...

Like most of Dan Abnett's writting, its a good read with lots of movement and quality stories.

Easily the best omnibus of the Gaunt's Ghosts series, the Lost is filled to the brim with interesting characters that are not afraid to dabble in the gray areas of morality. But, perhaps that is what makes this series all the more legendary. Dan Abnett is a master of painting the battlefields with such realistic seaquences that you can almost see that rusty chain sword screaming at your face. From the dark and murky swamps of Gereon to the craggy and dusty landscape of Jago, the worlds and the stakes only become more vivid and dangerous.

First off, let me begin by saying I have been waiting forever for this Omnibus to come out because I've only ever been able to read Traitor General in the single book format. I preordered this and was definitely not disappointed. Mr. Abnett continues to impress as he develope his characters as well as introduce new ones

Dan Abnett is back and better than ever in this omnibus continuation of his amazing Warhammer 40,000 series Gaunt's Ghosts. The Lost contains the stories: Traitor General, His Last Command, The Armour of Contempt and Only in Death which are some of his best works to date. Throughout these stories, Abnett continues to build upon already strong characters and continuously introduces new ones while constantly bombarding the reader with suspense, action and plot twists that would make Stephen King's jaw drop. This is an amazing book and the best series I've ever read. Although I do not reccomend it to someone with no background knowledge of the Warhammer 40,000 universe or someone who has not read the previous books in the series.
