Eisenhorn (Novel Series) – Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum
eosenhorn I love a book that doesn’t tell me what to think, instead giving oomnibus all the information I need to form my own opinions about what I’ve read. Mar 05, Ken rated it really liked it Shelves: Aug 19, Mark rated it liked it.
I watched him as he stepped off the path of the puritan and became a radical. This is another entertaining short story, one with a little less action but more than makes up for it with its eeriness. This despite the fact his enemies are Inquisitors who, themselves, have fallen from the path of grace due to their desire to use the power of Chaos against itself. The omnibus consists of three books and two short stories. One of the best warhammer 40k books i’ve read. Abnett un po’ d’immaginazione, le avventure di Gregor Eisenhorn ed i suoi compagni, raccontate dal punto di vista dell’Inquisitore, possono dare al lettore ore ed ore di divertimento ed emozioni.
Even Pontius Glaw, a major villain who can’t really DO much until the third book is given a strong sense of character when he converses with Eisenhorn. I’m still not quite clear and finished with my decision whether Eisenhorn is doomed for ommnibus since the line between pure intentions and malevolent righteosness is very fine in this book; Eisenhorn certainly impersonates the former, and most of his Inquisition colleagues fall victim to the latter, making Eisenhorn somewhat naive and blinded by his defenceless, somewhat faltering good will and readiness to better the Chaos-rotten Imperium by adn means necessary.
What am I actually reviewing? That said – this book was good enough that, down the road, I won’t be so hesitant to pick up a Warhammer novel. After giving some time to reflect on these stories, I came to the conclusion that Eisenhorn is the Jack Bauer of the 41st millennium. Some of the books, even now, are little more than advertisements for the latest little plastic men that Games Workshop has produced. Description The Inquisition moves amongst mankind like an avenging shadow, striking down daemons, aliens and heretics alike with uncompromising ruthlessness.
Eisenhorn (Eisenhorn, #) by Dan Abnett
Allo stesso modo i poteri del Caos citati, possono essere annoverati tra i Grandi Antichi creati dal solitario di Providence e dai suoi epigoni nel cosiddetto ciclo dei Miti di Cthulhu. Eisenhorn was a named character in the game with his own model, as was his antagonist and ally, the Daemonhost Cherubael.
For more totally unjustified snark, check out my review blog here! To make things worse, Eisenhorn is once again declared as a Heretic by the Inquisition for his involvement with the Malus Codicium.
Even without knowing anything about the 40k universe based on humanity in the 41,st centuryI couldn’t put this book down.
There is tons of action. To view it, click here. I can see why it is held in such high regards by the fans. Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for in the grim dark future there is only war. As a side note Abnett has one of the better Lovecraftian realisations in the characterisation of some of the Chaos elements I have ever read, and as a fan of much Cthulhu mythos fiction it is no small praise.

Stylistically, Gregor is directly talking to the reader. 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. All three books begin with a scene that leaves thousands dead and ejsenhorn stories follow Eisenhorn’s journey as he gathers the clues and searches for the masterminds behind each of the mass destructions.
Open Preview See a Problem? In the end, they matter ALOT. All three books of the Eisenho Inquisitor Eisenhorn is one on the most senior members of the Imperial Inquisition. 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. 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 the fate of certain characters very clearly.
He misses, but only thanks to the mass of people between them.
He killed twelve thousand people, by the way. This also leads to what I think is a pretty great quote:
