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.

Great book, great narration

Dan Abnett is possibly my favourite writer of current times. This book is a prime example of his class. Loved it from start to finish and can't wait to complete the trilogy. Toby Longworth could narrate tax returns and make them sound like poetry. 100% recommend.

It was a little jump cutty, but worth a listen if you like the universe. lots of characters too, which made it harder to follow than last story

Eisenhorns Journey Towards the Darkside Begins in

A hundred years have past since we last fought the powers of Chaos at Gregor and his retinues side.
A Demonic entity mistakes another Inquisitor for Eisenhorn talking to him in a friendly manner before realising it's mistake. This event raises eyebrows and turns the suspicious eye of the Holy Inquisition of the God Emperor firmly in Eisenhorn's direction. Then all hell breaks loose.
Old friends reunited and new faces join the fray in a race across the galaxy in an effort to thwart the dark enemy.
excellent book, well written and as ever perfect narration.

A great book with the narrator

I really enjoyed the first eisenhorn book, and this one was even better. Further developing characters from the first book and Toby Longworth does a supreme job as narrator. Worth every penny!

Slow & Painfully Unimpressive

This book was worse than the 1st in the series. 90% of it is slow boring explanation with the last 10% at the very end of the story wrapping everything up.

Great WH40K action adventure....

I loved reading this series. Now I enjoy hearing them....
however, it seems that the first syllable of each chapter is cut off. not that big of a deal on it's own but a bit annoying considering what I paid to listen to it.

if you don't know Dan abnett, you don't know much.

you must read and listen to All of Dan abnetts collected works. Ever. he is my hero and he even messaged me back and forth on Facebook, showing how accessible and humble he is.

The Quintessential Eisenhorn book

Of the 3 books and collected anthology, this is the best. It is Act II in a 3 act play, this is the part where the characters shine.

Another fantastic tale by Dan Abnett.

A marvelous and deep crafting of the Warhammer 40k universe into an accessible adventure and mystery. Dramatic improvement in narration over the previous audio book, but the audio quality could use improvement.

In a universe far far away … it is the dark ages.

Malleus: Warhammer 40,000
Dan Abnett

A long time ago in a universe far far away … it is the dark ages.

This is Star Wars… but envisioned by Clive Barker, with detailed notes from H.P. Lovecraft, and rocking to a heavy-metal beat.

THE SETTING:
The Future. Man-kind's Emperium covers the universe. Humans travel great distances by sailing star-ships through "warp space". Manned by psychics who can guide ships through warp space.

THE DANGER:
Unfortunately, "the Warp" is not just the empty space between stars. It's another dimension. The big unspoken truth of this universe is the Warp might be hell. It's full of horrible ghosts. Human and alien dead. Some have evolved into vastly powerful demonic beings & monster-gods. Unfortunately, by the time man-kind figured this out, the Emperium is as wide, and to travel anywhere you HAVE too use the warp.

A DARK UNIVERSE:
The battle to save the human race from corruption from the Warp has been waging for many thousands of years … and is not going well.
Like in the middle ages, much knowledge has been lost.
Superstition has risen.
Science has devolved into a religion where tech-priests pray to machine-spirits.
Ancient and gigantic, battle-ships travel through the void. Many of their gothic-cathedral interiors are now dark and vacant as humanity's armies decrease.

A DARK UNIVERSE so dangerous, so lavish in gothic, dark detail it teeters your mind on the edge of insanity. Mutant-monsters from the WARP threaten the human universe in a epic war that has no end.

WHAT WILL SAVE US?
What will save humanity from this EXTREMELY frightening vision of the future?

The most powerful thing in the universe is… love.

Dan Abnett's beautifully written characters.
No matter how dire or vile their situation, they are bound together by the greatest power in the universe: LOVE.

Warm-heartfelt friendship, respect, love for their "Master" Eisenhorn, and each other - These friends and comrades fight vast darkness with strength, wit, warmth, humor, and a a eternal feeling that the human spirit will always rise above all the chaotic darkness out of the WARP.

This is brilliant literature not to be missed.
