And a quick note on theme. From left to right: Essentially what is viewed as BAD eisenyorn those who are sporting moustaches and drinking cups of whatever the staunch Imperial brew is! Some may have some gripes about it, like the flat female characters, the slow spots that are encountered, but all-in-all this is a hugely entertaining read. Of the supporting characters, I most enjoyed Bequin as she serves as a nice contrast even as I wonder how a Null can end up as a high class prostitute since the psyker field suppression causes anyone inside it to hate the person involved or at least be disgusted by them NERD TRIVIA!
He killed twelve thousand people, by the way.
This is one of those books where you van you’ll just read one more chapter before bed and next thing you know it is 3 am. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys sci-fi in general.

All I know is that the races are awesome. I know there is another set of trilogy featuring Ravenor and thought he would play a bigger part in the story but didn’t expect him to be taken out so quickly. Since the Imperium’s history and lore is crutial to the storyline, as well as are the events of Eisenhorn and his associates’ lives, it is important to be reminded how all these numerous figures interconnect and click together to form such an expansive and intricate account of a hero’s rise and fall, his greatest achievements and his unfortunate undoing.

I never was one much for what you might call police procedural type books.
For some reason, the Eisenhorn trilogy is only available as an omnibus edition at this point, and contains the three books: When we first meet him Eisenhorn is a veteran Inquisitor; dogged, determined, and ultra professional.
