I believe a sword with special properties (like Barbarisater) could allow Eisenhorn to beat a SM
Mandragore was also supposedly extra special tough, to the point that the Space Marine Chapter Master wanted to ask Eisenhorn how he won, but was too shy to ask

He sure seemed to be an equal this time. Even charging together, and both bouncing away from the impact. I think Eisenhorn has learned a few things since Mandragore. Or at least he knew this fight was coming, and had all the appropriate tricks ready. And yeah, Barbarisater sure helps! heh

Yeah It's more, Eisenhorn and Barbarisater combined vs anyone he fights.

Beware Spoilers!!!

I for one don't think the yellow king is Ahriman as BL are doing a whole series based on him and would not want to over do it. I think it could be someone bigger, I dare say even a former Primarch; Lorgar maybe. Also the Alpha Legionarrie looked very familiar to the Emperors children Teke which by the way I really enjoyed reading about (it was the smile that got me ) maybe its Alpharius or Omegon.

Whoever they are, this book and series has my full attention and I cannot wait for the next one.

Cheers

I just don't see Abnett going so far as to include a Primarch as a primary antagonist or ally even. It would just up the scale to biblical and probably overkill proportions, where as we know Abnett is perfectly capable of writing engaging primary(and supporting antagonists for that matter), who most of the time are 'ordinary' humans, granted often augmented or with psychic powers, but humans none the less. Defeating a primarch or foiling his plots however, would just be a little bit much.

Haven't read this yet (waiting for price drop) but could the Yellow King be Inquisitor Czevak? The only human ever known to have accessed the Black Library?

Pure guess on my part, could easily be wrong.

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

I'm pretty sure Czevak isn't one of Abnett's characters. Intellectual property and all.

Czevak's adventures take place about 400 years after the events in Abnett's Inquisitor series.
