Summary

Hunted by his former allies as a radical and enemy of the Imperium, Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn must fight to prove that he remains loyal as he tracks down a dangerous heretic whom the Inquisition believes dead, the dread former Inquisitor Quixos. As he grows more desperate for victory, Eisenhorn uses ever darker means to achieve his goals, but how far can he go using the weapons of the enemy until he becomes that very enemy and no different to the traitor he hunts?

Really enjoyed this trilogy

The narrator did the book justice! Really good choice! Someone who understood the grim dark universe of 40k

Thrilling End

Brilliant end to trilogy, hooks you in early and drags you along, very hard to stop, you alway want just one chapter more, then unfortunately you run out of them.

Required reading for any 40K fan

If touve got as for as book 3 then you dont need me to tell you that this is the seminal 40k trilogy, and whilst its a few years old now it stands up to most of the books in that universe. Dan Abnett is a master wordsmith of the 40k universe, and this narrator compliments the rhe tones and emotions of the books to perfection.

Slow burner but worth finishing.

After the initial action there's a lot of slugging through - I loved the first two, but this one struggles to provide equal entertainment. There are some great parts, but it felt (to me) a laborious journey between them - unlike the previous two. However, I did listen to all three in succession, so that may have had an effect.

A story you will remember

A story with characters you will love and miss. The story of Gregor Eisenhorn is one worth listening to. Keeps you pinned and keep listening. Great character developments and storytelling. Best 40k story ive heard so far.

Loved it but not the best voice performance

I ordinarily Love Toby‘s work, but it sounds like he has a bit of a cold in this. It took away from my immersion, but the story is great and Toby normally rocks it. Just wish they would’ve let him have a few more days to recover if it was a cold, certain words are blurry.

Relatively Disappointing, and an Unfitting End

Compared to the previous books, this last entry is extremely dissapointing, and unfortunately showcase Dan Abnett's Jack-Of-Trades nature, and especislly his weaker writer earlier in his career. Almost every single event, scene, plot twist, and the entire book for me personally was entirely predictable and almost insufferably generic, down to the last sentence. It plays out even more akin to generic action adventure novels a dime and a dozen that both Xenos and Malleus did, and lacks all of the previous charm in this respect. It perpetually feels rushed, sometimes boiling down extremely important events and scenes to four sentences of vague, expositional summary, instead of a legitimate narrative. I still suggest reading this, but don't pay too much for it, and do not get your hopes up.

When it comes to the performance of Toby Longworth, it comes close to saving it. A legendary voice actor in my mind, Longworth''s performance throughout the Eisenhorn series, contrary to the actual writing, was consistent, and absolutely stellar.
