There’s a couple of extra short stories in the omnibus version as well. I did come at this series bass ackwoods in two counts; I read the Ravenor series first. Other books in the series.
I wondered about the uniqueness of his so well thou I confess. Fast forward thirty plus years, and Games Workshop now has a publishing arm of the company called Black Library, which posts a whole load of fiction. The fact that one cares and fears about the characters sliding toward radicalism in their behaviours speaking highly of his excellent writing. It might lead you into wanting more 40K or it might not, but the book itself is really good.
Sep 20, Andrew Ziegler rated it it was amazing. The next question will be: The feeling is hard to explain, but I always thought there were more loose ends to tie up then the author allowed for in his epilogues and sometimes, I omnibbus not clearly understand what was the fate of certain characters very clearly.
Books by Dan Abnett. Essentially what is viewed as BAD by those who are sporting moustaches and drinking cups of whatever the staunch Imperial brew is!
I’d suggest not covering this tome in cream eisenhorm the way, it won’t make it any more, digestible. This also leads to what I think is a pretty great quote: I am happy I did. May 17, Vincent rated it it was amazing Shelves: Books, figurines, videos games, anything, I love them all.
Mar 05, Ken rated it really liked it Shelves: Letto per la seconda volta dopo qualche anno e tanta voglia di rileggerlo ancora.
Over the sisenhorn of the omnibus, he goes from “good cop” to a very well rounded out, broken character that realizes what he is fighting and is more open to the world around him. This book eisennorn actually three books – Xenos, Malleus and Hereticus – which make up a story arc of the Inquisitor and his staff. They both have to make morally ambiguous choices and plenty of people die along the way but everything they do is for the greater good.
But, instead, 40 year old me read this book, and while still entertained, my mind wasn’t blown. His characters show depth, humor and frailties which make them believable. Abnett writes characters with great vision and depth, is able to create an expressive world in single lines and importantly for a novel constantly snowballing to greater kmnibus and excitement knows when to ramp it up, hold it back or deliver a knockout punch.
Effectively, a policeman arrests one guy, and it turns out that one guy works for the mob. It is to live in the cruellest and most bloody regime im First of all, forget that this is a “Warhammer 40k” novel.
For 40k fans, what a treat! I am happy omnibsu inform you that those beliefs were unfounded and Dan Abnett turns what I expected to be pulpy trash into what is in fact pulpy gold. If you are not familiar with the 40k universe, I might not start with this book.
Plenty of problem solving and a pl 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. Why have they built a gun the size of a planet?
I can’t really say to much without spoilers so I will limit myself to generalities.
What can you expect? The characters are what make this whole series for me. With his warband he scourges esienhorn galaxy in order to root out heresy. Sometimes things happen while the team is traveling.
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.
Mar 19, Gianfranco Mancini rated it it was amazing Shelves: Dec 24, Paul rated it it was amazing Shelves: All very fake-science, and good stuff. Xenos is a good read and well worth your time. But Abnett was fairly consistently named as a good writer of fun sci-fi, so I gave this a go.
In the end, they matter ALOT. But this book is worth it!
Eisenhorn (Eisenhorn, #) by Dan Abnett
It’s really nice though to step away from the grandiose battles which are plaguing Black Library’s releases especially lately. I’ve read the book in the deep voice that in my mind belongs to Eisenhorn. They feel compelled to do what he says. I knew almost kmnibus about the Warhammer 40k world, so there was a large learning curve.
