Publisher's Summary

The Inquisition moves amongst mankind like an avenging shadow, striking down the enemies of humanity with uncompromising ruthlessness. When he finally corners an old foe, Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn is drawn into a sinister conspiracy. As events unfold and he gathers allies - and enemies - Eisenhorn faces a vast interstellar cabal and the dark power of daemons, all racing to recover an arcane text of abominable power: an ancient tome known as the Necroteuch.

    "Exciting and well developed sf classic"

    Abnett demonstrates why he will always be the most respected warhammer author. All the extreme violence aside Abnett excels at painting rich and fascinatingly detailed worlds and that's exactly what you get along with engrossing characters and an exciting plot. Can't wait for number 2.

    "Fantastic voice acting for a 40K classic"

    having read this book several times in the past i thought I would attempt the audiobook version. the voice acting is fantastic and perfectly captures the 40k atmosphere. can't recommend enough, especially for those familiar with or curious about the Warhammer 40k universe.

    "As good as the hype"

    Seen lots of hype for this series and it definitely lived up to the hype. Then when you have it read by Toby it brings the story to life, I can only imagine Eisenhorne sounding like Tony now.

    As a first experience of dan abnetts work I thoroughly enjoyed every second of this story and couldn't stop playing it. For anyone into 40k warhammer or even sci-fi in generally this is a great listen.

    "No one expects the Imperial Inquisition!"

    I've always been a fan of 40k books and Dan Abnett's "Gaunt's Ghosts" are some of the best out there. Naturally, I was very excited to try out anything else he's written. The Eisenhorn series is a fascinating step back from the never ending war of the 41st Millennium and into the guts of the Imperium. The book reads more as an investigation than a war story and really lets you appreciate the parts of the universe that aren't actively on fire all the time. It works incredibly well as an audiobook because it reads like Inquisitor Eisenhorn's personal account of what happened.

    "Thank the Emperor!!!!"

    Black Library books have finally come to Audible, and this is one of the greatest. I see many, many credits being spent for the foreseeable future.

    And the Eisenhorn Trilogy is a fantastic introduction for audible users with no experience in the Warhammer universe.

    "An excellent military science fiction novel"

    I've long been a fan of the Warhammer 40K universe for its bleak view of a future humanity forced to embrace the worst aspects of its own nature just to survive in an actively hostile universe. However I've always been very wary of the quality of any tie in fiction (in general, not just in this setting).

    I had heard that this trilogy was different and am pleased to say this is an excellent work of military science fiction outright. The protagonist is well realized and managed to avoid being a caricature of themselves. The settings are varied, the original alien race satisfyingly non humanoid and the all important pacing keeps everything moving along nicely.
