The Eisenhorn Omnibus

I think by now, when people hear Warhammer 40K, they hear Space Marines. But if they hear Warhammer 40K novels, they must hear Horus Heresy or Eisenhorn. He must be one of the most famous characters who originated in novel form. If we’re looking at a book as the Eisenhorn Omnibus, it must be the book most people recommend to their friends fresh into the Universe. The one that has a little bit for everyone, veterans, as well as newcomers.

And I am here to tell you I disagree partially. Or I agree partially. It’s up to you if you want to see the glass half-empty or half-full.
