Okay, so the writing can be ever so slightly ropey in places, but it’s more than made up for as the vocabulary and intelligence of the book shines through.

Eisenhorn Trilogy Series in Order – Dan Abnett – FictionDB

And that’s all I need or expect from these books. This leads to a fun little exposition moment where Eiesnhorn again talks directly to the reader. If you’re looking, however, for something to pass the time, a good adventure in a different time and place, that requires little mental investment on your part, then this would be a good bet.

Inquisitors are given absolute authority to root out and destroy any and all threats to humanity. Nevertheless, I’m overwhelmed with joy of finally having gotten through to the end of this fictional account of the universe-spanning advantures of Gregor Eisenhorn, in a very far away future I sure hope never to be reincarnated in, and having found out how Eisenhorn’s odyssey ends.

Mar 19, Traci Lee rated it it was amazing Shelves: If there’s anything in the book that could be improved upon, it’s chopping down around the edges on the scrupulously detailed made-up martial art terminology within the rapidly paced battle scenes that slow the reading down as I’m I believe eisenhogn to try following through with the names of the slicing and dicing moves made by the protagonist.

Him and his Space Marine Chapter hunt down chaos. They always choose brilliant narrators, and Toby Longworth does a brilliant job. I love this book. Decisamente consigliato per chi adora la eisenhofn fantastica. Despite his protestations, arguably the arc of the series is Eisenhorn’s fall from a puritan outlook to that of a radical and eisehnorn element of imperial society.


Plus a strong bond of friendship forms between Eisenhorn and his staff members that do survive. Obviously, I would recommend this book to anyone who has a lot of time on their hands and is looking for a great book to fill that time up with. Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for in the grim dark future there is only war.

This is my first run of the Warhammer Universe, something I didn’t think I was interested in. They feel compelled to do what he says. That gave us Warhammer Fantasy Battle. As a wargamer I have read the fluff in the army codexes and enjoyed it and used it in games. He is a Inquisitor that is more or less a puritan at his own discipline.

Knowledge that gives power of taming the enemy’s secret tainted lore and its might of damnation, sadly a force beyond reckoning.

At what point does using the tactics of the enemy cause him to become that which he is sworn to destroy?

Dan Abnett bibliography – Wikipedia

In the grim future of mankind there is only war and I’ve enjoyed it immensely. It is one of my favorites to date and I loved being drawn into the dirty underbelly of the Imperium. At no point did I get bored. It’s exactly the turning toward radicalism in the name of all that’s good and pure that’s taking his unknowing mind, yet suspecting of his own faults, further into confusing right with wrong, as it were, when one person’s death is justified by saving millions in turn.

Overall, I really like the Eisenhorn series. Sometimes you just want to sit down and get lost in a crazy adventure.

I generally do not like thrillers, but still found myself soaking up the story of Inquisitor Eisenhorn’s adventures through the universe of Warhammer 40k’s more civilized well, for Warhammer locales as he battles evil space demons yes, that is what he battles and while I love science fiction, Eisenhorn is more like science fantasy, but that does not keep the novel from being both fun and exciting.

Also, he had a goatee, so evil is confirmed. The books continue on as he tracks down an agent of Chaos the realm of dark gods and daemons and has to resort to increasingly heretical methods to make progress. So as a word of warning, don’t get too attached to Eisenhorn’s crew. The story starts by portraying Eisenhorn as something of a progressive Inquisitor, but a zealous one none the less, who puts his faith in the Emperor of Mankind and does his duty. Audio plays and audiobooks include:.

I think one of the best aspects of the Eisenhorn series is the pace. This is such a plot driven story, rather than bolt-porn, it’s, well a relief and a joy to read in parts. No man can control the power of Chaos, after all, but he’s willing to get on the back of a bucking bronco in order to resolve the current problems he has. Here was a world that mixed Lovecraftian horror, with fantasy, and the sci- I have a vague memory of hanging out with some friends in elementary school as they rolled some dice and moved around some painted science fiction themed miniatures on a pool table.
