I recall enjoying the various stories, but did it set my world on fire? Dan Abnett has unfanthomably vast vocabulary and the way he composes the sentences just made my spine tingle with joy. I knew almost nothing about the Warhammer 40k world, so there was a large learning curve. Lastly, let me say the second short story included is the reason I often feel sorry for tie-in writers though I know they choose the world they write in. Oct 21, Eisrnhorn Lynd rated it it was amazing Shelves: Part of what I really enjoy is the way in which it was founded as a grim satire of the utopian sci-fi of the early-mid s. But Abnett was fairly consistently named as a good writer of fun sci-fi, so I gave this a go.

Ironically the name of the various Ordos or Orders within the Inquisition. There are also two very short stories, which sort of link in with the main storyline, somewhere. What can you expect? So I read this many years ago, whenever it was released. I recall enjoying the various stories, but did it set my world on fire? Not really. So no lacklustre characters here, the dialogue is fairly sharp and very descriptive, which can deflect from the plot line at times - yes I found myself yawning at points.
Eisenhorn novels are known to have set a precedents when introducing certain fluff into the universe, this is something Dan Abnett excels at.
Xenos is a great read and one I recommend to readers, especially if they are looking to introduce themselves into Warhammer 40K. A academic for life if you will, he is a character I can relate to in the sense of seeking complex problems and solving them. I mentioned him above. That being toying with the unknown, employing questionable skills and techniques.
Essentially what is viewed as BAD by those who are sporting moustaches and drinking cups of whatever the staunch Imperial brew is! As you may have noticed, this took me over a month to read; Christmas, New Years, studying and life admin.
To begin with it was really enjoyable, then after the next layer it was becoming sickly and a bit same-y. By the third, I was forcing myself to finish up and not throw it in the bin. So yes, the ending in Hereticus is a bit same-y and rushed, much like that last gutful of baked goodness.
Share Eisenhorn is a series of novels and short stories by Dan Abnett , following the adventures of Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn. Eisenhorn was a named character in the game with his own model, as was his antagonist and ally, the Daemonhost Cherubael. No other characters from the game appear, but the types of characters in the game -- Arbiters , Rogue Traders , Deathwatch Space Marines , savants, Mechanicum Magi and so on, are featured as key characters in the series. Inspired by these and the content of the game, Abnett wrote the initial trilogy, with Xenos, the first novel, released at the same time as the game. This is obviously going back always. And he sent to me simply because he thought I might be interested in and inspired by the images in Gaunt.
