Summary

A century after his recovery of the alien Necroteuch, Gregor Eisenhorn is one of the Imperial Inquisition's most celebrated agents. But when a face from his past returns to haunt him, and he is implicated in a great tragedy that devastates the world of Thracian Primaris, Eisenhorn's universe crumbles around him. The daemon Cherubael is back, and it seeks to bring the inquisitor to ruin - either by his death or by turning him to the service of the Dark Gods.

Toby Longworth is an excellent narrator.

Toby Longworth really stands out to me as an excellent narrator, and his ability to be consistent with both subtle and not so subtle character identities is impressive. The story itself is one of the most iconic set to the Warhammer 40,000 backdrop.

Same as the previous review, perfection.

I love these guys, thank the God-Emporer for their blessed rememberances. I highly recommend any Abnett and Longworth audiobooks

Inquisitor Eisenhorn is knocking

Every 40k fan should read the Eisenhorn series ! They are widely regarded as the best books ever to emerge from the dark vaults of the Black Library and rightly so.
I first read these books years ago and jumped at the chance to listen to them in audiobook form, I was not disappointed Toby Longworth does a stellar job bringing the story and characters to life.
Can't recommend highly enough.

Always worth a listen

A great reading of a awesome book. Have read the series many times and it’s just as thrilling as a listen!!! If you like a bit of 40k intrigue, deception and adventure your in the right place!! I would highly advise the Eisenhorn Trilogy and the Ravanor Trilogy also!

Quick ending

Good story, but the ending felt very rushed - not as good in the first in the series.

Great listen. One of the best in the 40k setting.

A great read. Abnett catches the mood of the 40 setting really well. Griped me from start to finish.

Kirito Eisenhorn

This one didn't quite give the same feel as the first. All of Eisenhorn's problems get tidied up too nicely and too easily. The villains didn't feel as threatening, nor their plots as interesting. The reveal at the end, however, leaves me with so many questions I'm dying to have answered. While Eisenhorn's plot armor is amped up I feel like I saw a side to him that I hadn't seen before and I have to know more.

Amazingly Voiced!

Expertly written! The narrator really made this book come alive. He had a different voice for almost every character and at times describing battles made my hair stand on end!

Weakest in the series

Great action, cunning politics, but the resolution and some plot points are a little lazy.

Simply the best

The audio work in the book is unbelievable. The story is breathtaking and fully immerses you in this quest for vengeance. Compared to other 40k audiobooks and even the other inquisition series books this series is by far the most action pack and heartbreaking.

Good 2nd Entry

not quite as good imo as the first book. i found myself getting lost and bored with some of the scenes and characters, but still worth a liste. i think its just a bit too far removed from the first book. same characters and universe, but set like 80 years later from the first book. narrator is the same as the first book so hes still awesome. ill be picking up the third next
