I’ve said it before, but if anyone can take the unremittingly grim, guns-and-gore drenched building blocks of the Warhammer 40k world and create something worth reading out of it, it’s Dan Abnett.
The first short story wasn’t as interesting as it might have been, but only because it really did require that you know something about Eisenhorn, which I frankly don’t though that’s on my to-do list.

It is nice science fiction and a pretty good example of tie-in writing.
Besides that the omnibus was phenomenal. Zeph Mathuin – Silent ex-bounty hunter. The author employs meaning into every word in the novel, since each action and each confrontation with the main characters has at the very least a significant effect on the plot. In the wake of Ravenor’s investigation to uncover the source of the flects, Zael gets taken along for being able raavenor “hear” the telepathic communication between Ravenor and Nayl.
Ravenor: The Omnibus
The story sets up the major tension for the next 2 books: Not my favorite Abnett story thus far, but Ravenor is a worthy successor to the amazing Eisenhorn. This book went deeper, into the societies and worlds and support structure, the secret war against Chaos and it showed us some of the reasons people work for the Emperor’s cause and why it’s important that they do so.

I got this book to read about an inquisitor, not his support staff. He can cast his mind out over the cityscape of Eustis Majoris and experience the plethora of human misery there is to be had within a Hive City.
