      I m still really enjoying Inquisitor Eisenhorn and crew This series has surprised me, I wasn t sure that I d like any of the W40k book since I never played the games I will definitely finish up this series and read the one that features Ravenor plus go back and try the Horus Heresies series.

    2. Martin says:

      Malleus is one of the better examples of novel Sequelitis What I mean by this is that the novel doesn t rehash the same old scenarios from the original but instead produce something new Malleus takes the characters and the world that was established in the original novel, Xenos , and then builds on it The stakes are higher, the threats are potent, and there is no guarantee of anyone s safety.Nothing highlights this point clearly than the Holy Novena on Thracian Primaris A victory parade so lar [...]

      English but not so good ItalianoThe Inquisitor this time is prey instead of hunter but I must say that the thing is perceived scarcely except the interrogatory and his sporadic clashes with the Witch Hunter Tantalid This, however, doesn t damage another exciting adventure made of intrigue as well as action, although I would have expected from the final fight versus the heretic But magnificent the epilogue with Cherubael, a character by now essential part of the saga, as well as nemesis of the p [...]

      It s been six years since I last read Malleus in full Six years during which I held the Eisenhorn trilogy in the highest regard Six years of rose tinted glasses, looking back fondly on that nostalgic trilogy Six years in which I have maintained that, to this day, the adventures of Gregor Eisenhorn, Inquisitor of the Ordo Xenos, still remains the best introduction a newcomer to Warhammer 40,000 can have when it comes to the fiction.Now, six years later, fresh out of a re read of Malleus, hotly an [...]

      You know, I ve always looked down on novels written within an already established universe Either be it a tabletop game, a movie or someone else s literary universe I think I had the prejudice that they weren t original and kind of lazy I ve asked What s so hard about writing a story within a ready made world with its lore and history but boy, was I wrong It was proven to me once by R.A Salvatore with his Night Elf stories and now I m yet again, shamed into admitting how wrong I was I found out [...]

      Malleus is every bit as compelling as its predecessor, and since Xenos did a wonderful job of bringing me into contact with the series and the universe, Malleus had to serve as a cautious expansion which balanced description with story and it did that perfectly Again, the greatest strength of the book is its setting, followed by the character development The first person narrative makes it very easy to see exactly how Eisenhorn s mind works, as he goes from moderate Puritanism to a pragmatic rad [...]

    7. Christopher Stilson says:

      For a first person narrative, it s awfully impersonal, though the sense of personal jeopardy is much stronger throughout than was the case with the first, which felt detached after the first few chapters and only became relevant again past the two thirds mark One thing Abnett is very good at portraying is the rot and stagnation of the WH40K universe, through his emphasis on the passage of time The primary disappointment is in how anticlimactic the climactic encounters are for a series based on a [...]

    8. Eeva Kulmala says:

      An exciting, epic space odyssey on a similar scale as the first one Xenos , but with better pacing and unified theme Again I had a very gut placed reaction to portions of this book which always impresses me about a book Action and disaster on an epic scale, as is befitting of the Warhammer 40,000 universe.If anything is to be criticized, it s that the book seems to end some fifty pages too short The end is very abrupt and unsatisfying from any other perspective than the main character s.

    9. Nathan says:

      The second book in Dan Abnett s Eisenhorn Trilogy, it s pretty much the same type of story as the first book Xenos.The plot is a little complex, the main character a little complex, and the action even better written than before.It s still a fluff book for the Warhammer 40k Universe, and if you aren t interested in that and haven t read the first book, it s probably not extraordinary enough to be worth a read.I am glad that I read it.

    10. Nate says:

      Review to come.

    11. Kam says:

      Oftentimes, when one is reading a novel or a series of novels, something will happen that will indicate that there is no turning back a decision is made, a course of action taken, or a death occurs that forever changes the course of the plot and, for better or worse, and nothing is the same ever again In Tolkien s The Lord of the Rings, that moment is, in my opinion, when the Fellowship breaks up after being attacked on the banks of the Bruinen in The Fellowship of the Ring from that point, the [...]

      After a century of hard fighting, the Ophidian sub sector has been reclaimed for the God Emperor A mighty triumph is held on Thracian Primaris to celebrate the victory, but the day is blighted by a tragedy so vast in scale it shocks even the battle weary Imperium Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn investigates the source of the atrocity, even though his own reputation has become blighted by reports of his unorthodox methods As the investigation unfolds, Eisenhorn discovers links with a case from a cent [...]

      Expertly, tightly plotted, with well written action sequences and memorable characters Aemos for MVP.__ Sorry to be so predictable Moral consistency is nothing to apologise for The first step of seduction is the knowledge An inquisitor must understand the basic traits of Chaos in order to fight it In a few years, he knows about the warp than most untutored cultists Then the second step the moment he breaks the rules and allows some aspect of Chaos to survive or remain so that he can study it an [...]

    16. Christopher says:

      So I ve finished yet another classic 40k novel, once again Dan Abnett delivers This novel or less follows on from Xenos give or take a few centuries as our protagonist, Gregor Eisenhorn, combats the forces of Chaos Given the jump in time we are greeted by an older and experienced Gregor, and the same can be said for his loyal band of followers some new and some old After being summoned to witness a grand triumph and upon hearing some interesting rumours about himself all hell breaks loose as a [...]

    17. Vernon Burt says:

      Dan Abnett is a great author, although this isn t his greatest series The setting is shown in great detail and its hard not to get drawn in to the magnificent and epic setting involved My only complaint is that characters can be a little two dimensional and nowhere near as deep as his other works The plot also tends to be somewhat straightforward in the novel as Eisenhorn is less of an investigator and of a battering ram that tramples his enemies underfoot.

    18. Mike Salamida says:

      Still good What s interesting in this installment is the framing, the re telling of the story from a much older Eisenhorn Highlights are Eisenhorn s rumination about his past, an added depth that I hope will color the final book.

    19. Kavinay says:

      Maybe it s just been a long time since Xenos, but this book seemed a bit flat for me Abnett s writing is great, but the Inquisitor hijinks plot just didn t grab me.

    21. Travis says:

      Another strong story with good development Enjoyable world, great character development, an excellent book.

    22. Stephen says:

      Loved the short story that went along.

    23. Daniel says:

      A short take This book is frickin awesome The story hits a number of locations of which Abnett takes full advantage, especially on the mining planet This book is like an epic fantasy with an intergalactic back drop More thoughts Who is this Abnett person, and why did it take me so long to get to these books Seriously, when it comes to adventurous fiction, these rank high in my reading history The shared world aspect leads to the odd reference I don t know, but otherwise this feels entirely autho [...]

    24. JM says:

      I have to say that Eisenhorn has kind of grown on me as a character Though I enjoyed the previous novel in the trilogy, I kinda thought the protagonist was a bit of an asshole as well as a hypocrite, but I guess Abnett wrote him that way on purpose Eisenhorn is, after all, an Imperial Inquisitor in the Oh So Edgy And Dark Warhammer 40,000 universe The running thread of this, much better, second novel is whether or not the ends justify the means, and to what extent, which I found an interesting a [...]

    25. Keelee James says:

      Dan Abnett is the master of conveying exactly what it s like to be a part of the Imperium of Man in the grim darkness of the 41st millennium Take this scene, wherein Eisenhorn visits the hallowed shrine world of Orbul Infanta It is beautiful It is awe inspiring Even I am kind of feeling my heart lift with wonder at the spectacle, praise for the God Emperor on my lips And then this happens At the top of the stairs, we entered the blessed cool of the streets, where the shadows of the buildings fel [...]

    26. Ken says:

      In Malleus, the Inquisition thinks that Eisenhorn is consorting with daemons and declares him Heretic and Extremis Diabolus Eisenhorn decides to go rogue in order to gather the evidence needed to prove his innocence.This story surprised me in a few ways First the story begins ninety eight years after the events of Xenos, which is a pretty big time jump and somewhere in the middle one of the crew members have died but not much is said of that particular event Second, in this book we also meet Eis [...]

    27. Chip Hunter says:

      While I enjoyed reading this book very much, it just didn t quite live up to my expectations after reading Xenos Malleus just didn t seem put together as carefully as Xenos, seeming a bit forced to me the whole way through Parts of the book were rushed by with hardly any explanation and other parts seemd included just as an attempt to get some immediate action At the same time some things about this book were better than the first one The interactions between Eisenhorn and Cherubael, as well as [...]

    29. Michael says:

      I am growing to appreciate both the Warhammer 40K universe and Dan Abnett s writing style with each book I read There is an amount of honesty I can appreciate in their unapologetic offerings of what I supposed could be considered pulp science fiction These books aren t Hemingway, but never claim or attempt to be I suppose if that s what I was looking for I could go read Hemingway.Malleus is an improvement over the preceding Eisenhorn entry, Xenos My only complaint is that the climax and d nouem [...]
