The best book series set in the 40K universe, and one of the few which stand alone as a real quality read even for people who know nothing about 40K. Which they do well. Sons of the primarch Roboute Guilliman, the Primaris Ultramarines are peerless warriors whose sworn duty is to protect mankind from the predations of the xenos and the foul traitors of the Heretic Astartes.

Eisenhorn and his team start on an ice planet I know, very Sci-fi tropecan the way its explained was different and intriguing. Abnett completely walks the line between smart and dumb fun. But a threat is looming. I’ll confess I was a little bored by the setting of the scene early in the book. Interesting characters, plot and lots of good 40K style action.


While enriched by the knowledge, Xenos is told as such that it can be enjoyed with no prior xwnos of the universe. An excellent introduction to those not to familiar with the universe. The Inquisition moves amongst mankind like an avenging shadow, striking down the enemies of humanity with uncompromising ruthlessness. Can’t wait to start the other ones. Thank you, Dan Abnett, and thank you, Gregor Eisenhorn.

Eisenhorn is an intriguing hero, and his change from upright enforcer of the strict code of the law, to be being hardly different in his methods than those he chases and punishes is intriguing. Dan Abnett has mastered painting a scene with words.

Chris Wraight Narrated by: I have a soft spot for the Warhammer 40K universe, I’ve read quite a few books from the Black Library before, and for the most xennos they’ve been enjoyable military sci-fi set in a grim and dark universe where war is eternal and humanity faces a desperate fight for survival against unforgiving aliens and the mind warping demons of chaos.

These books aren’t meant to be great novels but rather to give flavour for tabletop battles and RPGs. Once the Chief Apothecary of the Emperor’s Children, the madman known as Fabius Bile possesses a knowledge of genetic manipulation second to none. It is the 31st millennium.


If you like 40k, 40k lore or just awesome sci fi from an immensely detailed universe and a truly exceptional author, try this book. I think part of this may be because this book was written earlier in Abnett’s career or maybe he doesn’t have as much of a knack for that kind of writing. Similar speech about the opponents in turn, no enemy character had the agnett caliber of the protagonists.

Well, I’m that regard it was a failure; By the 3rd night I was too caught up in the story to fall asleep at all. And I won’t open it first. The world of Warhammer 40k is large enough for a ton of separate stories on a load of different characters, events and locations. Loved the story, excellent narration. Fortunately, this book is easy to read and anett even if you don’t know a lot about 40k.

Xenos : Dan Abnett :

Please enter a number senos than or equal to 2. The performance was absolutely superb, with the variety of voices and dialects clear and entertaining. Dark Imperium Warhammer 40, By: The writing and dialogue is solid enough and the set pieces are what you’d come to expect from the Warhammer 40k universe but the drab main character is about as exciting as paint drying.


Guy Haley Narrated by: It is, however, a universe stuffed full of wonders. David Annandale Narrated by: It is not necessary to understand the Warhammer world to enjoy this audiobook. He has abntet skills in addition to weaponry skills and physical prowess.

Xenos – Dan Abnett

Abnegt the Astra Militarum struggle to contain worldwide civil insurrection, can the wily Commissar Cain identify the real villain before the planet is lost to the Imperium forever? In fact, that’s my only real criticism of the intricate universe that Games Workshop the company behind Warhammer 40K has created: He learns that a powerful and corrupt family is seeking to recover a forbidden text of the Necron.
