Mar 05, Ken rated it really liked it Shelves: I don’t know why I waited so long before I picked up this series. With the exception of a ill placed lightsabre energy sword, most of the tech in the world didn’t seem out of line. Since the Imperium’s history and lore is crutial to the storyline, as well as are the events of Eisenhorn and his associates’ lives, it is important to be reminded how all these numerous figures interconnect and click together to form such an expansive and intricate account of a hero’s rise and fall, his greatest achievements and his unfortunate undoing.

Aug 04, Andrew Bass rated it it was amazing. Third, however, Abnett is not a silly writer, and despite the pace it is a smart set of novels. Stop being weird and start turning the pages. He uses the demon Cherubael, who i think is ahnett of the most interesting characters in the ahnett. Martin’s one per week, a lot less to read this mere seven hundred and fifty something pager.

Eisenhorn (Novel Series) – Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum

The character Eisenhorn is very well done. Also, he had a goatee, so evil is confirmed.

Looking for beautiful books? 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 did not clearly understand what was eisenhlrn fate of certain characters very clearly. Still, the tale leading up to these forced endings more then made up for their shallowness. Maxilla actually got me misty with his pure, unadulterated joy and devotion to Eisenstein’s adventures.


Second, Abnett keeps up the pace. The trilogy is a first-person struggle for Gregor Eisenhorn.

Plenty of problem solving and a plot that has you thinking about those many detective programs you’ve watched on the BBC. The Inquisitor series is pretty much the same thing, only there are a lot fewer characters, and your heart breaks just a little bit more when one of them, well I wont say dies because that would be too easy.

Inquistors in Warhammer are basically the law, they keep chaos at bay and enforce the will of the emperor. Part detective story, part interplanetary epic, these are the very best tales produced by the Black Library so far. This was kind of an experiment. No using chaos powers to hunt chaos. Includes all three novels, plus two linking short stories, “Backcloth for a Crown Additional” and “The Curiosity”, in one must-have package.

I have my own opinion.

The writing itself wasn’t eisenuorn that crazy, but the world itself had more than enough to keep me coming back and turning pages. It eisenohrn not clear if the novels and stories eisfnhorn written in the same period, after Hereticusor are, as may be more likely, written intermittently during and after the events of the series.


Despite all the changes made in the intervening years, 40K is still very 80s glamrock over the topness. Jul 15, Nicholas rated it liked it Shelves: So you can imagine how surprised I was to be confronted with the quality of this work. It was actually better than I thought. And that’s what this novel was.

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 eisenhron me and I can’t really review it as a single work.
