Summary

When his body is hideously damaged in an enemy attack, it looks as though Inquisitor Gideon Ravenor's promising career would be abruptly brought short. Now, encased in a life support sytem that keeps him alive but forever cuts him off from the physical world, Ravenor utilises his formidable mental powers to continue his investigations. Along with his retinue of warriors and assassins, Gideon Ravenor fights to protect an Imperium he can no longer see, hear or feel.

Fantastic Novel, Fantastic Audio Book

Really enjoyed this not only as a novel but also as an audio book.
Toby Longworth is amazing. The voices for each character are good.
Dan Abnett knocked it out of the park again. The climax of the book feels like a film!
An excellent start to the Ravenor Trilogy.

Efter avslutat Eisenhorn

Efter att avslutat Eisenhorn trilogin så är detta en mycket bra fortättningsserie, Om du inte har får nog av inquisitionen .
Endel av karaktärerna ifrån Eisenhorn är också med och de refererats till de tidigare böckerna .
Du behöver inte ha läst de andra böckerna men det skadar inte.
För att förstå ordentligt behöver man ha en grundläggande kunskap om de universum som böckerna utspelas i. Men har man bestämt sig för denna bok så finns den kunskapen redan skulle jag tro.
Tycker att detta var en bra och välskriven bok ,om en ny och spännande karaktär Ravenor.

Excellent cottage entertainment!

As my first experience with the venerable Audible service, I had to go for Ravenor. Longworth reads with an atmosphere that is fitting with my ideas of Warhammer 40k, although I had to adjust a bit for the female voice-acting. This, however, was entirely my fault as a listener rather than any on Longworth's part.

Story itself is what I expected of Dan Abnett, and I've found he writes Inquisition and stories of its servants best. A solid listen for those interested or versed with the verse, as I could use this as an introduction to the "grim darkness of 41st millennia".

Sadly not as good as Eysenhorn to me.

With Dan's other books in the inquisitors line they have had a slow start abd picked up taking the story somewhere else and making it feel longer but with this it was so slow paced when it did pick up it was nearly finished. I will be geting the other Ravenor book though not right now.

Great story, fantastic cast of characters. starts a little slow and has some plot holes and Deus ex machinas, but on the whole a great listen!

Grim and Glorious.

I came to this after the Eisenhorn books. Ravenor continues the fight! He is an equally (for me sometimes even more) excellent and compelling hero as Eisenhorn. I like how he is incredibly formidable, yet limited at the same time though being forced to survive in a support chair. It gives his staff more of a chance to shine, and creates some unique dynamics that separate this trilogy from the Eisenhorn one in an interesting way.

Ravenor inherited some team members from Eisenhorn so familiar faces are back. There are new members too so it's cool to see the familiar characters within this new ensemble while also appreciating how much fun the new people are. It's not just a rehash of the Eisenhorn books.

Toby Longworth is so super good as a narrator. It's an easy and satisfyingly intense experience to listen to his read of this. I liked the presence of Xenos as well as Chaos elements in the book and the mix of on the ground and ship based action.

This voice actor is the best I've ever heard.

The performance is amazing, and the story is great. Like a well written DnD game.

Magnificent!

First impressions made me think it was a little crass(adult language), but after listening to its entirety, I am glad I finished the book. Top marks for characters; from backstory to in-story implementation, everything fits together perfectly. only criticism follows; one character is voiced differently throughout the book, starting with one voice before switching to a distinctly different voice and manner. however, this is toward the end of the book and the character has few lines, less than a dozen. So only a very minor issue.

Thank you for writing this book(Dan Abnett) and for providing such a fantastic oration(Toby Longworth)!

A good starter for new 40k readers

A slow burn of engaging characters and masterful world building set in the 40k universe.

inquisition at its best

Perfectly in theme with the dark and brutal world of warhammer, it dives right into its fast paced stoyline.
Toby Longworth makes this experience even better with his talented voice .

Great book

Start with Eisenhorn or you won't get a lot of references. Outstanding book by Abnett.
