All three books contained and the two short stories were a first person narrative of Eisenhorn, a inquisitor who searchers for influences of Chaos though the galaxy. The Gaunt’s series is amazing, if you have read those and not been pissed off every time DA kills off a character you are not reading it right.

Eisenhorn (Novel Series) – Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum
Abnett dodged that scathing bullet from me with grace and aplomb. Many players who are now introduced to the game seem to think that the sky really is falling. And I guess that’s why the book sold me. Third, however, Abnett is not a silly writer, and despite the pace it is a smart set of novels.

If I had gotten to the end of Ravenor and not be assured there was more to come I may have ordered an Exterminatus on Nottingham. That’s not to suggest the path of the Radical is easy.
At no point did I get bored. If eisehorn like science fiction, particularly fan technology blended with mysticism and religion, I can’t recommend this one highly enough. How enjoyable would this series be to someone who knows nothing about Warhammer?
