What a strange story. I’ve finished “Xenos” by Dan Abnett, first book in the Eisenhorn trilogy, and a part of Warhammer 40.000 universe. To say it’s unique would be an understatement.
About the Book: Inquisitor Eisenhorn has finally caught up with his enemy in this desolate planet, encased in ice and darkness. But the victory soon turned sour by the death toll it took and the awful realization that this man was merely a cog in a far greater, Chaos fueled machine. Now Eisenhorn is in a hurry to follow up the trail before it got cold and hopefully stop the catastrophe before it starts wrecking havoc.
My Opinion: For starters, this was a pleasure to read, the way it is written, the language used. Good pacing, a very interesting story, extremely rich lore. This will be unlike anything you’ve read before, as you’ll begin to listen to this mighty Inquisitor hop planets both accommodating and harsh, meet strange people and beings, fight extreme battles, and get ever closer to the Chaos, unimaginable, maddening…
Definitely a good read. A 5 out of 5.
