My friend was right, I love the concept of an inquisitor and now will have to read all the books on inquisitor characters.

The series seemed to have been toned down a bit since the other novels I read. A truly brilliant reading of the first in Abnett’s Eisenhorn trilogy.

A novel I can recommend to any 40K fans who like to read something other than the usual Space Gregor Eisenhorn is ddan Inquisitor in the grim future of the 41 millennium.

My personal favorite abneyt the creepy Lovecraftian parts which were well-executed. Can’t wait to get my next credit for the next in the series!
