So last night, I finished reading "Xenos", book 1 of the Eisenhorn Trilogy by Dan Abnett. It chronicles the adventures of Gregor Eisenhorn, a Grand Inquisitor tasked with rooting out a heretical cult hell bent on claiming power through an alien book called the Necroteuch.
All in all, this book is highly recommended for the uninitiated reader looking to delve into the Warhammer universe. It's beautifully grim, ornate, extremely violent and compulsively readable. Pick it up and let me know what you think!
If you're so inclined, "Xenos", and its two other sequels, "Malleus" and "Hereticus" are all collected in the Eisenhorn Omnibus. It's pretty reasonably priced on Amazon so you won't have to buy all three separately!
