Dec 22, Stuart rated it really liked it Shelves: I’ve read the Horus Hersey and don’t get me wrong, I loved it. All of this is to the good, so why the 3 stars?
This was kind of an experiment. Some of their fiction has even hit best seller lists, which is pretty impressive for such a niche! Eisenhoorn love this book. Aug 04, Van Bass rated it it was amazing.
Seems likely to me, although I sure would like to destroy the Chaos just as badly and madly if I were him, knowledge certainly giving the upper hand over the enemy’s unsuspecting mind.
Read Eisenhorn, then wipe your tears and read Ravenor. A superior authored tale of the 41st millenium. Refresh and try again. In the grim risenhorn of mankind there is only war and I’ve enjoyed it immensely. Other books in the series. Lists with This Book.
Eisenhorn (Novel Series) – Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum
Is this book worth your time? Abnett’s portrayal of the grim darkness of the far future sets an excellent backdrop for a morality play that’s as old as literature itself. Knowledge that gives power of taming the enemy’s secret tainted lore and its might of damnation, sadly a force beyond reckoning. Qualcuno lo ha definito una sorta di “Il daan della Rosa” ambientato nel futuro con tanta azione.
Mankind must suffer so that mankind can survive. He knows he is writing a fast paced action novel, and doesn’t disappoint.
They feel compelled to do what he says. It’s also interesting to see more of the bureaucracy behind the Imperial Navy, Inquisition, and Imperial Guard. I hated giving this three stars, but I felt that I had to. Want to Read saving…. I actually originally read “Xenos”, the first novel in the trilogy, as a stand alone novel I picked up in a secondhand bookshop and was so impressed I coughed up the money for the whole omnibus edition eiaenhorn after.
No Dues ex machina type endings, not a lot of coincidences that drive me nuts. Eisenhorn novels are known to have set a precedents when introducing certain fluff into the universe, this is something Dan Abnett excels at.
Eisemhorn my mind, they have the real abneett of grimdark, and anything else abnett a let down. But eventually, because of desperation, Eisenhorn has to use the very powers of chaos to destroy a Chaos Titan.
Retrieved 15 September One of the best warhammer 40k books i’ve read. Con un po’ d’immaginazione, le avventure di Gregor Eisenhorn ed i suoi compagni, raccontate dal punto di vista dell’Inquisitore, possono dare al lettore ore ed ore di divertimento ed emozioni.
I’ve always been fascinated by Warhammer and Warhammer 40, as games, and especially as settings. After this we come to Malleusthe Inquisition thinks that Eisenhorn is consorting with daemons and declares him Heretic and Extremis Diabolus. Maxilla actually got me abntt with his pure, unadulterated joy and devotion to Eisenstein’s adventures.
This is one of those books where you say you’ll just read one more chapter before bed and next thing you know it is 3 am.
The story itself is reasonably straightforward-Eisenhorn dxn an Inquisitor charged with hunting down individuals and organisations dangerous to the Imperium so in structure it is not unlike a detective novel, punctuated frequently by some awesome action scenes and unravelling of ever deeper mysteries.
I knew almost nothing about the Warhammer 40k world, so there was a large learning curve.
It is not clear if the novels and stories are written in the same period, after Hereticusor are, as may be more likely, written intermittently during and after the events of the series. What am I actually reviewing? Next, Gregor and his crew go along to the autopsy of the deceased bad guy.
I did come at this series bass ackwoods in two counts; I read the Ravenor series first. So many crazy ideas.
But this book is worth it! Jul 15, Nicholas rated it liked it Shelves: It’s really nice though to step away from the grandiose battles which are plaguing Black Library’s releases especially lately.
The feeling is hard to explain, but I always thought there were more loose ends to tie up then the author allowed for eisenhron his epilogues and sometimes, I did not clearly understand eisenhprn was the fate of certain characters very clearly. Well, you probably have Warhammer to thank for that. Part of what I really enjoy is the way in which it was founded as a grim satire of the utopian sci-fi of the early-mid s. Inquisitor Eisenhorn is one on the most senior members of the Imperial Inquisition.
