Publisher's Summary

In the hellish sprawl of Imperial Terra, Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor Erasmus Crowl serves as a stalwart and vigilant protector, for even the Throneworld is not immune to the predations of its enemies. In the course of his Emperor-sworn duty, Crowl becomes embroiled in a dark conspiracy, one that leads all the way to the halls of the Imperial Palace.

As he plunges deeper into the shadowy underbelly of the many palace districts, his investigation attracts the attention of hidden forces, and soon he and his acolyte Spinoza are being hunted - by heretics, xenos, servants of the Dark Powers, or perhaps even rival elements of the Inquisition itself. Soon they discover a terrible truth, one that if allowed to get out could undermine the very fabric of the Imperium itself.

    "Ceremite flying picket."

    The dude on the cover looks like an up armoured Arthur Scargil, thats a good enough reason for me to read this book.

    "excellent, I highly recommend."

    such a vast and immersive universe, I don't understand why it has never made it main stream.

    "Oh... Wow. Where to start."

    This book started well... But quickly took a deep plunge into the warp without the gellar field right away. Interrogator Spinoza was given a Crozius Arcanum by the imperial fist Chaplain she had served with because she is so good at fighting.

    If you know warhammer, thats like an inquisitor lord just handing over his Rosette to some random guardsman. It is very literally the symbol of his station as a symbol of prayer for the space marines that follow him, and a weapon he takes into holy battle. That is the pope handing over his Papal ferula to some random guy on the street. It reeks of mary sue-dom and bad writing to make his character look all the more awesome.

    Eisenhorn was given a hand crafted masterwork bolt pistol by the deathwatch in recognition of his deeds in uncovering a major heretic plot, destroying an infamous tome of chaotic lore, killing a chaos marine in single combat, and intelligence in suggesting a means of training imperial guard to operate in a pocket realm of alien geometry. That was an amazing moment.

    This is trite, forced, hackneyed, and just bad. have it be a power maul, or sword, or whatever. Not one of the most important things a Chaplain wields. For some more perspective, a spent bolt shell fired from a space marine is a Holy Relic. Not like, "i saw jesus in the burn pattern of my toast", but "This is one of the nails used to crucify Peter" There are shrine worlds that their main draw is that they have a single bone from a space marine. And with that people will undergo pilgrimages that will only be finished by their great great great great great grandchildren.

    "Good overview of life on Terra"

    Good listen but not as gripping as The Emperor's Legion. I like these new books exploring life on Terra and additional time spent with the Inquisition.

    "I finally feel like a menial hive scrub"

    It was good, the day to day description of life was disturbing and the characters were charming enough.

    "Life on Terra"

    This book provides excellent insight on life in the 40k grim dark. This is a must listen for everyone that plays 40k.

    "Great listen for the ride home from work"

    I started listing to audible books for the ride home in LA traffic. I have always read 40k books and decided to start out with this book as my first foray into audible books. I was very impressed with the detail that described Terra and the story itself had me sitting in my car parked outside the house saying just 1 more minute, till the wife texted me saying to get my butt inside. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book and recommend it to those who love 40k books

    "Warhammer comes to Audible !!!"

    I was so excited about Warhammer coming to Audible, this was good, always good to visit this empire- but not the best one to start with on Audible, my son has done the Beast Arises Series and says they're great- we just purchased all the hardcover books and then they came to Audible, bummer- try Caiphas Cain and the Space WOlves, once you get into the world, then do this one when you have more background. I was very disappointed that they didn't read the intro at the beginning, love that in all the books and read it every time!!!
    So glad these books have come for out listening pleasure !!!
