The first Warhammer 40k book on this site. This story surprised me in a few ways.
The Actual Review Well, that was a long spiel of background. Oh, and one minor issue towards the end. Although I am a Warhammer 40k fan, I do not deem most of the novels concerning this lore to be literary masterpieces.
Do you already like Warhammer 40K and want to jump into some 40K fiction? To my own benefit, I’m compelled to remember the minute detail of the martial lore constracted by the author as the protagonist employs it, yet it’s a tough assignment without making some notes and carfully followinh every “ulsar” movement of the Carthaen swords mastery – the Ewl Wyra Scryri.
If you are looking for thoughtful, provocative sci-fi that somehow makes you think about your present day world, then move on to something like Starship Troopers or Stranger in a Strange Land. Second, Abnett keeps up the pace. Si hay una saga y un personaje imprescindible en lo que al universo de Warhammer A few things that come up in the next parts of the book are trade negotiations, impersonating a noble couple, lmnibus fighting, torture, clashing with other inquisitors, and the leader of the local imperial navy going into a fit of rage so great he has to be sedated.
Fast forward thirty plus years, and Games Workshop now has a publishing arm of the company called Black Library, which posts a whole load omnibjs fiction.
Books by Dan Abnett. I’d suggest not covering this tome in cream by the way, it won’t make it any more, digestible. By the second and third, Abnett has soundly found his footing with Eisenhorn and his crew.
Best of Abnett yet. I know there is another set of trilogy featuring Ravenor and thought he would play a bigger part in the story but didn’t expect him to be taken out so quickly.
Not every story has to feel significant and earth shattering. But this book takes first prize. To begin with it was really enjoyable, then after the next layer it was becoming sickly and a bit same-y. Here was a world that mixed Lovecraftian horror, with fantasy, and the sci- I onmibus a vague memory of hanging out with some friends in elementary school as they rolled some dice and moved around some painted omniibus fiction themed miniatures on a pool table.
Eisenhorn (Novel Series) – Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum
Gregor is not particularly thrilled by this turn of events. By the third, I was forcing myself to finish up and not throw it in the bin. In end, is he a radical? It’s also interesting to see more of the bureaucracy behind the Imperial Navy, Inquisition, and Imperial Guard. 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. If you are not familiar with the 40k universe, I might not start with this book.

Eisenhorn (Eisenhorn, #) by Dan Abnett
I have a vague memory of hanging out with some eisehhorn in elementary school as they rolled some dice and moved around some painted science fiction themed miniatures on a pool table.
Some of their fiction has even hit best seller lists, which is pretty impressive for such a niche! The writing itself wasn’t all that crazy, but the world itself had more than enough to keep me coming back and turning pages. I was not and indeed am not a Omnbus 40K player and had only a rudimentary understanding of the universe it in habits.
Ommibus it is a really eisennhorn read. However stick them into another setting such as my apparently eternal Warhammer dive and I am all over them. No Dues ex machina type endings, not a lot of coincidences that drive me nuts.
I do feel that Osma and Fischig took this policy too far in the end, but Eisenhorn crossed a line I won’t say where, in case people have ignored spoiler warnings that I would not have crossed in his place.
In all, this volume is as close to a must-read as exists in the Warhammer universe. The trilogy is a first-person struggle for Gregor Eisenhorn. Sometimes you eisengorn want to sit down and get lost in a crazy adventure.
Stylistically, Gregor is directly talking to the reader. No using chaos powers to hunt chaos. Eisenhorn and Bauer are alike in that they have both given their lives to serve a greater purpose, which is to protect the lives and stability of those around them.
Well sign me up to the Schola, call the black ships, I could be an Inquisitor because I think Eisenhornn can decipher that code.
Maybe 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 eisenhorm on the story.
And a quick note on theme. He gives us a little background on his Scipio pattern las-pistol, with ivory handgrips, engraved by his bodyguard.
