Aemos, Bequin, Bure, Glaw, even Cherubael in his few scenes throughout the years. The Gaunt’s series is amazing, if you have read those and not been pissed eisenhorh every time DA kills off a eisenjorn you are not reading it right. Let’s be honest, worshipping a dead idol is holding back the Imperium Eisenhorn, Warhammer 40,s answer to Sherlock Holmes and Judge Dredd rolled into one.
Now, the blurb for Xenos is rather generic, and I could easily use that excuse to go through the entire book. By the second and third, Abnett has eissenhorn found his footing with Eisenhorn and his crew. A few things that come up in the next parts of the book are trade negotiations, impersonating a noble couple, pit fighting, torture, clashing with other inquisitors, and the leader of the local imperial navy eisnehorn into a fit of rage so great he has to be sedated.
I shed a single tear. Jul 24, C. 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.
Eisenhorn: Xenos – Wikipedia
But eventually, because of desperation, Eisenhorn has to use the very powers of chaos to destroy a Chaos Titan. Do I think Eisenhorn was right? Despite all the changes made in the intervening years, 40K is still very 80s glamrock over the topness. This omnibus is really a great solid piece of work and once again shows why Abnett is considered one of the best writers at Black Library.
While I’m not privy yet to any of the discussions that have, I’m sure, taken place in the ten years since Eisenhorn’s release, I’m sure the central question of “Was Eisenhorn right?
Inquisitor Eisenhorn is one on the most senior members of the Imperial Inquisition.
I can hardly live for my shame. Dec 22, Stuart rated it really liked it Shelves: When that heresy is found to infiltrate the hierarchy of the Imperium and the Inquisition itself, he must rely on himself alone to deal with it – even if it means making deals with the enemy. I love a book that doesn’t tell me what to think, instead giving me all the information I need to form my own opinions about what I’ve read. Forget the power of technology and science, for so much has been forgotten, never to be re-learned.
You’ll have to decide. But Abnett was fairly consistently named as a good writer of fun sci-fi, so I gave this a go. Jul 15, Nicholas rated it liked it Shelves: Warhammer 40, 1 – 10 of books.
Well, there it is, possibly my longest review ever on Goodreads, and it is for something that almost no one else I know would ever read.
I can see why it is held in such high regards by the fans. The gameplay centers around the Inquisition that moves amongst mankind like an avenging shadow, eisenhirn down the enemies of humanity with complete ruthlessness.
Gregor Eisenhorn – 1d4chan
But this book is worth it! He misses, but only thanks to the mass of people between them. This was kind of an experiment.
Feb 04, Darrel Vater von Katzen rated it it was amazing. Paperbackpages.
The fact that it is written in the first person, I think, makes it a bit more accessible, and a little more intense, such as when Eisenhorn is tortured more than once, mind you. Working with an Inquisitor is dangerous business though so not all of them survive from book to book, eizenhorn the ones that do grow. All of this is to the good, so why the 3 stars? Inquisitor Eisenhorn is a great character because he really manages to convince you eisehorn has everything under control for the entirety of the series while increasingly losing his grip.
This leads to a fun little exposition moment where Gregor again talks directly to the reader.
