Review of 'Malleus (The Eisenhorn Trilogy, Book 2)' on 'Goodreads'
This one felt harder to follow than the first one. Perhaps because I was kind of trying to rush through it, perhaps because it felt like it was referencing a lot more places and people that all sound the same to me. I think it helps these books that they have come from a tabletop phenomenon. From time to time I try to imagine what the events taking place would look like as meticulously painted figurines on an unreasonably large table and I like what I imagine.
The story itself is very... the good guys are definitely also the bad guys. More so than in the first book. It's all loyalties and allegiances and long preparation for short bursts of bloody violence. Really well done.
