However stick them into another setting such as my apparently eternal Warhammer dive and I am all over them.
How enjoyable would this series be to someone who knows nothing about Warhammer? The easy answer is to say that no one was right – they’re all flawed human beings simply making the best decisions they could, and it’s only a work of fiction, so get over yourself. What can you say when characters you love, oh I don’t know, are locked up in prison with no resolution to their fate, or perhaps turned into a host for a daemon this has happened MORE THAN ONCEor perhaps in order to combat the evil and darkness they hate they have to give in to its power and use it becoming the very thing they hate?

And I have to admit If you are looking for thoughtful, provocative sci-fi that somehow makes you think about your present day world, then move on to something like Starship Troopers or Stranger in a Strange Land. I knew almost nothing about the Warhammer 40k world, so there was a large learning curve. And I guess that’s why dqn book sold me.

Eisenhorn : Dan Abnett :
Abnett is an amazing writer. However with further inspection, Eisenhorn and his retinue finds that there is a certain pattern leading to the death. Retrieved from ” https: 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.
This is the first book published by Black Library that I ever read.
Or maybe the first thing that needs consideration is how all the ensuing events unravelled, delivering Eisenhorn to making decisions whether to abnettt or not an innocent person? But this book hooked me on the 40k books. This is one that stands out in it’s own right and deserves a place among the best of sci-fi. Con un po’ d’immaginazione, le avventure di Gregor Eisenhorn ed i suoi compagni, raccontate dal punto ean vista dell’Inquisitore, possono dare al lettore ore ed ore di divertimento ed emozioni.
Ironically the name of the various Ordos or Orders within the Inquisition.
Besides Eisenhorn of course. I’m still not quite clear and finished with my decision whether Eisenhorn is doomed for heresy 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 avnett to better the Chaos-rotten Imperium by all means necessary.
They always choose brilliant narrators, and Toby Longworth does eisenhorj brilliant job.
Still, the tale leading up to these forced endings more then made up for their shallowness. Well, you probably have Warhammer to thank for that.
Dan Abnett bibliography – Wikipedia
The fact that one cares and fears about the characters sliding toward radicalism in their behaviours speaking highly of his excellent writing. There are also two very short anett, which sort of link in with the dah storyline, somewhere. I will say upfront that in my list of favorite characters in science fiction, Eisenhorn is on that list. More than just a space adventure, it is similar to “the name of the Rose”, but in space.

The cover of the rerelease of Hereticus. I have gone back and read several times and am preparing to do it again, before I read Pariah by Dan Abnett. Return to Book Page. A dark, massively dark world eisenhorm helps appreciate all the light in ours. It’s the story of an Inquisitor of the Order Xenos despite never really going after Xenos who finds himself eisenhogn down the slippery slope from a conservative to a radical.
Retrieved 12 September Additionally, I love getting a chance to see the elements of the 40k universe which are not typically depicted in the game; it’s nice to see what Imperial planets look like before they are invaded by Orks and burned to a crisp. That said – this book was good enough that, down the road, I won’t be so hesitant to pick up a Warhammer novel. What am I actually reviewing? Abentt 40k fans, what a treat!

Recently though I took another look at the concept and was blown away. Stop being weird and start turning the pages. Just a brilliant character among brilliant characters. 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.
That’s not to suggest the path of the Radical is easy.
