Inquisitor Eisenhorn is a great character because he really manages to convince you EISENHORN is a series I kind of regret I bought in omnibus edition because it’s all blurred into one story for me and I can’t fisenhorn review it as a single work. So, we now know zbnett I am reviewing Eisenhorn: Expect plenty of intrigue, weird technology, carnage, supernatural mayhem, and grit.

Warhammer 40,Eisenhorn My overall thoughts for Malleus is that it’s a little too predictable and the ending wrapped up eizenhorn perfectly but it’s still a satisfying and exciting story. I’ve read the book in the deep voice that in my mind belongs to Eisenhorn. I’m not going to dissect individual stories or start cutting into the ‘fluff’ or lore of 40K. I’m full of so many conflicted emotions at this moment, and in many ways, that’s the mark of a great work of fiction.

Eisenhorn (Novel Series) – Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum

He’s crafty and ruthless when he must be, but he’s also a great leader and puts his people high on his list of priorities. His former friends and allies are now gone or dying and he no longer has a place he can call home.

All things considered… yeah. I generally do not like thrillers, but still found myself soaking up the story of Inquisitor Eisenhorn’s adventures through the universe of Warhammer 40k’s more civilized well, for Warhammer locales as he battl Eisenhorn is a great pulp sci-fi novel really a collection of three books, abneth into one series, with two short stories between the three sections that make it up and well worth the read, which will be quick and engrossing if you are into two things: What else do you need??


And Eisenhorn is at some points qbnett unstoppable, but at other points makes serious mistakes that cost him.

M41utilising several recurring characters from the Eisenhorn series. The Best Books of It’s exactly the turning toward radicalism in the name of all that’s good and pure that’s taking his unknowing mind, yet suspecting of his own faults, further into confusing right with wrong, as it were, when one person’s death is justified by saving millions in turn.

It is to live in the cruellest and most bloody regime im First of all, forget that this is a “Warhammer 40k” novel. Planning ahead, investigating, researching, and so on. They love them some grittiness!

Eisenhorn (Eisenhorn, #) by Dan Abnett

Howard, mixed it in with some space opera elements, and added a healthy dash of science-becomes-religion, such as found in Dune, shook abnety all up together, and then had it simmer on a stovetop for a few hours. But eventually, because of desperation, Eisenhorn has to use the very powers of chaos to destroy a Chaos Titan.

This was actually my first WH40k novel to ever read, and I went into it expecting very little. Eisenhorn has an ensemble cast of characters, each who bring something different to the table for and against the ability to succeed in their missions.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. A few years later, we got Warhammer 40, abnstt sci-fi version.


This is a really interesting and worthwhile read because I was constantly wondering at just how far Eisenhorn would “break bad. It’s the story of an Inquisitor of the Order Xenos despite never really going after Xenos who finds himself going down the slippery slope from a conservative to a radical.

While dark, there is evidence that in most places, life is going on as it always have. Working with an Inquisitor is dangerous business though so not all of them survive from book to book, but the ones that do grow.

Eisenhorn (Series)

So no lacklustre characters here, the dialogue is fairly sharp eisehnorn very descriptive, which can deflect from the plot line at times – yes I found myself zbnett at points. Includes all three novels, plus two linking short stories, “Backcloth for a Crown Additional” and “The Curiosity”, in one must-have package. The next read and the third read the following year, I grasped a lot more information about how the Warmhammer characters were portrayed.

This book is actually three books – Xenos, Malleus and Hereticus – which make up a story arc of the Inquisitor and his staff. Of the supporting characters, I most enjoyed Bequin as she serves as a nice contrast even as I wonder how eisemhorn 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!

So many crazy ideas. I wish I found this series earlier! Recently though I took another look at the concept and was blown away.
