Summary

Inquisitor Gideon Ravenor and his retinue are believed dead, and with shadowy forces moving against them, they'd like to keep it that way. Returning to the planet Eustis Majoris, they go undercover, investigating a brutal ring of smugglers moving stolen arcane technology within the Imperium. 

As they descend deeper into the organisation, it becomes clear that a terrible plot is unravelling. The ancient machines contain the unthinkable, and Ravenor must summon all of his wits to thwart the conspirators before the ultimate secrets of Chaos itself are laid bare!

Vast improvement

If you are like me, then you might have been put off by the first ravenor book. especially if you came from the Eisenhorn series. I originally didnt like the way it was presented, with the titular character getting sidelined so much, but the characters grew on me and the second book has what I think to be a somewhat better plot, although this may be my prejudice on the first book talking. The one thing that still irks me with the narrator (who is godly) is his portrayal of the women in the books he narrates. Honestly he makes them sound like old ladies, though without using a second narrator like in the Caiaphas Cain books I doubt it's possible. It's hard for me to imagine Kiss being all sexy and lithe as described in the book when she sounds like Helbrecht.

Absolutely love Dan Abnett's inquisition books - great depth & detail which really add to the Warhammer 40k universe.

outstanding


loved it, I read this many years ago in paperback form and enjoyed it. Toby Longworth again did an outstanding job, hands down the best 40k audiobook narrator to date.

Best Inquisition Book Yet

For me this is the best of all the inquisition books so far including the Eisenhorn series. I like the way it’s a slow burn over all the books with Ravenor. Felt the team really gelled in this one.

Dan and Toby are a knockout team

Dan Abnett is slowly becoming one of my favorite authors, and with that, Toby Longworth is a perfect fit for everything he writes. Can't recommend these books enough.

Outstanding!

What is there to say? Abnett towers over the Black Library like a Colossus. Everything about this series, much like his Eisenhorn trilogy, is top notch. If you are a 40k fan, I dont know that it gets better.

Good but you have to like psykers

Amazing narration as always. Maude and Karl’s stories are the most compelling- definitely a must if you’ve read the previous book. I found ravenor interesting at first but now I don’t really get compelled by his character. There is little growth or direction for him.

Plot was fun though. Unravel the mystery, stop the baddies. Overall a great success from Dan and Toby.

Another win for Abnett and Longworth!

A great mix of intrigue, awesome conspiracy and fast paced action.
I liked this one even better than the first, and this is a direct continuation of the events in the first book.
Toby Longworth's acting conveys the story at least as well as would a cast of A-list actors.

Well worth your time

The book starts out rather chaotic, but the threads are rapidly assembled into a captivating and well told epic adventure. This is probably my favorite 40k book so far…
Toby Longworth reading pushed it even further. Fantastic listen. Highly recommended.
