      I liked this book the least out of the three One thing that really bugs me is that we all know Eisenhorn can t smile after what happened in book 1 but there have been numerous mentions of him smiling in the following books He might be feeling happy or amused, but he definitely wasn t smiling.The ending felt really rushed, and there were story lines that weren t resolved view spoiler What happened to Cherubael How did Eisenhorn explain himself so he avoided the heresy charges Another nit pick was [...]

      Usually when we read a series, its quality goes down The cliches appear, the setting gets stale, and the story is taken for a ride Eisenhorn, I am very happy to say, breaks that trend.Hereticus is a book of great sadness, a tome which brings the career of a celebrated Inquisitor and a great character to a close The book is a good way to actually understand just how much you care for these characters Abnett plays with the readers in a masterful way, making us hang on to every word, and he does so [...]

      English but not so good ItalianoThe story is very fascinating, especially as regards the relationship with Godwyn Fischig, with Cherubael, and the slow but steady approach of the protagonist to radicalism a dangerous dance with heresy The clashes are surprising, and I m not talking about those against Vessor janissaries, where despite the notorious name it s enough Eisenhorn alone to defeat them although I admit that the one on the Trans Atenate Express was nice it also has recycled the corpse o [...]

    4. David Andrews says:

      A great end to the Eisenhorn trilogy, leaving us wondering exactly where Eisenhorn s path leads while also wrapping up a great deal of character arcs Eisenhorn continues to straddle the line of Inquisitor and heretic while still ultimately serving mankind in a wonderfully gray capacity Once again, the only real downside I felt in the book was the usage of obscure, fictional words to describe sword stances and strikes I really don t feel that it added much, and in many cases it detracted from the [...]

      If Malleus was about choices then Hereticus is about consequences.It s said that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, in which case Hereticus details the reaction to the choices that the main character, Gregor Eisenhorn, has made up to the start of this novel The choices that he made during his career as an Imperial Inquisitor have not always been easy They have been hard, controversial, and some damn right blasphemous but they were all made in service to the Emperor and the [...]

      Nice read, though I thought the resolution was a bit quick.

    7. Adam Whitehead says:

      Gregor Eisenhorn has survived clashes with the forces of Chaos, an encounter with a little known alien species and internal politicking within the Order But it may be that he cannot survive his own hubris When his residence is destroyed and most of his staff assassinated by unknown attackers, Eisenhorn discovers that an old enemy has returned to plague him, an enemy whose actions he himself must take responsibility for To defeat this foe Eisenhorn has to invoke the very powers he is pledged to d [...]

      As I have mentioned before, in my review of Rapture, the last book of Kameron Hurley s incredible Bel Dame Apocrypha trilogy, I have a hard time staying away from the last book in a trilogy Under normal circumstances I would space out my reading, but when I m so close to the conclusion of a series I can practically taste it, this self imposed rule tends to get broken for the sake of finding out, once and for all, just what happened to the characters in the book I just finished.And this is the ca [...]

      So, I have to admit that I m a sucker for the happy ending, butThe Eisenhorn trilogy doesn t necessarily have a happy or tragic ending It just takes the path needed to resolve and tie up the ends of the plot lines that needed to be completed for the series to come to a logical end I have completely enjoyed this trilogy even though I don t play these games This morning, before I even started to write my review, I went online to find a list of the books published by the Black Library so I can read [...]

      Some spoilers in 2nd paragraphAnother great novel from Abnett, and a fitting conclusion to the trilogy Eisenhorn s evolution throughout the series is magnificently written, and widens the scope of his powers and possibilities as it progresses I feel like Abnett uses Deus Ex Machina a bit too often, and that the build up to the ending was too long from the attack on the estate to the world of Gh l The meeting between Eisenhorn and Ravenor is great, and I would have liked to learn about the Eldar [...]

    13. Travis says:

      It was a good ending to this trilogy, but there were a few spelling errors Finding errors disrupts immersion into the story Some of the scenes felt indulgent than value added, meaning they did not add to the story and could have been removed without any consequence Overall, it was still a good adventure Not the strongest of the 3.

    14. Christopher Bowley says:

      Dan Abnett shows us yet again that he isn t afraid to kill off some of his characters, making the reader invested in the story and making it believable There s some cracking scenes in this, the best book of the series.

    15. Jeff Sinclair says:

      A wonderful ending to a brilliant trilogy.

      The Emperor craps himself at the sound of my name Spectacular.

    17. Eileen says:

      In which Eisenhorn s life reaches levels of suck that would horrify Harry Dresden.

    18. Keri Honea says:

      UnpredictableSo much death and betrayalLoose ends all tied up

    19. Cloak88 says:

      Good, but not the best of the series.Having reached a rank and status beyond respect, Eisenhorn is a living example of what the Ordos stand for With that position however also come a toll Having slowly realized that not only has his fight against chaos and the warp taken it s physical toll, but also his soul, Eisenhorn is haunted by an enemy long sinds dead and defeated This is the final closing chapter in the Eisenhorn Trilogy As all previous novel in the series this is a compelling thriller se [...]

      Excellent finale for the Eisenhorn Trilogy Dan Abnett is a natural for Warhammer 40k.

    21. Hermes Vasconcellos netto says:

      WARNING THERE ARE SEVERAL SPOILERS IN MY REVIEW.This is the last Book on the Eisenhorn trilogy Dan Abnett creates an interesting group of characters and specially an excellent protagonist in Gregor Eisenhorn However, at times, i dislike his depiction of the 40k universe In this book for exemple some of the universe feels too much like generic sci fi, the whole part where Eisenhorn and his followers escape from his state feels too much like that It is an interesting feeling since in other books A [...]

    22. Big Pete says:

      Hereticus is the final book in the Eisenhorn cycle It does not disappoint Eisenhorn and most of his team are old now, but he s almost as spry as he used to be The story is pretty great, though not quite as good as that of Malleus The novel is a mixture of chase and pursuit, it never being quite clear who is the cat and who is the mouse It shares the same hybrid detective interplanetary epic feel as the rest of the novels, though lacks the noir aspect that Malleus possessed Eisenhorn is somewhat [...]

    23. Ken says:

      In Hereticus we witness Eisenhorn s change to radicalism, almost crossing over to becoming heretical as he goes against the very thoughts he once believed in and uses the power of the Warp against agents of the Warp We see him struggle with his choices and the decisions over the use of the tainted knowledge His organisation is destroyed and is hunted by a man know as Khanjar the Sharp To make things worse, Eisenhorn is once again declared as a Heretic by the Inquisition for his involvement with [...]

    27. Adriana says:

      This is, to me, the most awesome of EVEN Dan Abnett s books.The Pontius was likely the best enemy in any book I ve read in my life thus far There s a sort of mixture of emotions towards the character purely because he and Eisenhorn would be the greatest of friends had he not turned to Chaos and he s so intelligent that we can t help but feel a certain amount of respect, as well as even pity for the fact that he spent years upon years as what was essentially a rock.Hereticus is the culmination of [...]

    28. Doomsnake Nestrobber says:

      This series was really good, and i liked it, but i just feel like i need to point this out.For those of you who are familiar with this book, you will know that Gregor Eisenhorn cannot smile The muscles in his face were severely damaged during an interrogation by Gorgone Locke, a shipmaster from the first book.I bring this to your attention because im fairly certain that in this book, or maybe the one before it, there was a bit of dialogue where one of Eisenhorn s team says something amusing, and [...]

    29. Mel says:

      I m not a huge fan of Dan Abnett yet I did quite enjoy this There s just way too much action and not enough character building or world building I really love the 40K setting but it seems that in far too many of the novels it just becomes a bit of background colour and nothing The most interesting parts in this involved the inquisitor and his use of heretic magic and the demon But there was no growth or development that came out of this I would love to read a strongly driven character novel tha [...]
