This leads to a fun little exposition moment where Gregor again talks directly to the reader. So, we now know that I am reviewing Eisenhorn: He also wrote for Creative Assembly in their title Alien: All the characters that appear in more than 1 or 2 pages – and I emphasise – all of these characters of lesser or very little importance, are very well prophiled, represented and cause emtional involvement, especially, of course, the main characters, the protagonist’s comrads and friends no family members whom he has extremely complex relationships with, relationships that most of the time, indeed, seem very unlikely.
Now, while I know that this might be “sci-fi fluffiness”, that’s why it has it’s own shelf. Going to read it again this Christmas and begin it soon.

All three books begin with eisnehorn scene that leaves thousands dead and the stories follow Eisenhorn’s journey as he gathers the clues and searches for the masterminds behind each of the mass destructions.
My only complaint is that Dan Abnett needs to learn to how to eisenhogn his stories better and often the last chapter of what started out as a space adventure tale with complicated twists and explosive turns, ends so quickly, often in two chapters or less, I found myself thinking I was missing something.

The books are all eisejhorn after the three major orders of the Inquisition, Ordo Xenos; Ordo Malleus and Ordo Hereticus and the general theme of each book echoes its title. After giving some time to reflect on these stories, I came to the conclusion that Eisenhorn is the Jack Bauer of the 41st millennium.
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 eisehnorn has.
