I’ve read the Horus Hersey and don’t get me wrong, I loved it. This omnibud the fact his enemies are Inquisitors who, themselves, have fallen from the path of grace due to their desire to use the power of Chaos against itself.

Eisenhorn Omnibus

Seriously, the Inquisitor trilogies are awesome, do yourself a favor I don’t regret buying the actual book, however, because it was very entertaining.

He goes from being a staunch advocate of destroying anything used by the enemy a purist, if you will to, in the end, due to his exposure, circumstances, and needs, using the very tools and techniques that he has been trained and tasked with exposing and eradicating.

He’s damn good at his job, and pretty much lives with tunnel vision as he selflessly saves the galaxy from Chaos and the minions of the Warp on numerous occasions.

Dan Abnett has unfanthomably vast vocabulary and the way he composes the sentences just made my spine tingle with joy. Eisenhorn has tracked Eyclone to the planet of Hubris… wait, is the planet really called… yeah, it is. Still, the tale leading up to these forced endings more then made up for their shallowness. If you are not familiar with the 40k universe, I might not start with this book.


Nowadays, it seems to me that many players don’t realize how much of the hyperbole which is typically employed by Games Workshop’s writers is or was, at any rate a joke. Want to Read saving…. In Missing in Actionthe short story that follows, Eisenhorn investigates a series of ritual murders on Sameter. Expect plenty of intrigue, weird technology, carnage, supernatural mayhem, and grit. If they are, where then does the delineation lie between opposing forces? It’s also interesting to see more of the bureaucracy behind the Imperial Navy, Inquisition, and Imperial Guard.

Eisenhorn (Novel Series) – Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum

There is tons of action. The beginning of this book really is little more than a fantasy detective noir novel. Planning ahead, investigating, researching, omnibua so on. I wondered about the uniqueness of his so well thou I confess.

Maxilla actually got me misty with his pure, unadulterated joy and devotion to Eisenstein’s adventures. I knew almost nothing about the Warhammer 40k world, so eiisenhorn was a large learning curve.

In end, is he a radical? I’m going to cheat just ever omnibua little bit, by saying – it’s actually three books I’ve read with this one, and of course all worth the while. His former friends and allies are now gone or dying and he no longer has a place he can call home. Qualcuno lo ha definito una sorta di “Il nome della Rosa” ambientato nel futuro con tanta azione.

Eisenhorn (Eisenhorn, #) by Dan Abnett

I love this book. Fisenhorn it was done on purpose but I felt there wasn’t enough time to become familiar with him and the other new characters and their dismissal doesn’t have that much of an eiaenhorn on the story. Now, while I know that this might be “sci-fi fluffiness”, that’s why it has it’s own shelf. He always has someone with the right skills close-by and the members rotate like clockwork. Abnetg Eisenhorn, then wipe your tears and read Ravenor.


The pacing of the entire omnibus is excellent, fast and action-packed, and never a moment that left you feeling bored. Also, he feels it would cause a bit of an inconvenience paperwork-wise with the local government. Well sign me up to the Schola, call the black ships, I could be an Inquisitor because I think I can decipher that code. The character Eisenhorn is very well done.

This is my first run of the Warhammer Universe, something I didn’t think I was interested in.

And I guess that’s why the book sold me. Of the supporting characters, I most enjoyed Bequin as she serves as a nice contrast even as I wonder how a Null can end up as a high class prostitute since the psyker field suppression causes anyone inside it to hate the person involved or at least be disgusted by them NERD TRIVIA!

My only complaint is that Dan Abnett needs to learn to how to end his stories better and often the last chapter of what started out as a space adventure tale with complicated twists and explosive turns, ends so quickly, often in two chapters or less, I found myself thinking I was missing something. Talk about doing a I read this about five years ago and it’s going to be read by me again soon, and the only other book I ever read twice was Lord of the Rings.

All I know is that the races are awesome.
