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.

    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.

    "A must listen...and then some."

    This a must listen, a fantastic book by no stretch of the imagination. Very well read by Toby Longworth, which brings all the characters alive. Though a long book it does not seem so and ends all not quickly with so many twists and turns it has your head spinning. But rest assured you won't get lost and thank the brilliant writing of Dan Abnett to that fact. Well worth the one credit purchase you will not regret it as its the author at his best. Can't wait to listen to the next book in the series, and the further adventures of Eisenhorn. Be confident in the fact you will not be bored as you hang on to every word of the inquisition keeping the imperium of man pure. And no I'm not giving the story away, don't want to spoil this one one bit.

    If you have never heard of the warhammer universe this is a great entry point. This along with the other books in the series are all well written and would stand alone out on their own.

    "Bit Slow to Start But Still Fantastic! "

    This is my first dip into the Warhammer 40K novels and it was really great. A little slow to start but the rest of the book was fantastic. Great story, very well read and very enjoyable.

    "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.

    "For The Emperor!"

    So glad to see the Black Library finally opening on Audible! Dan Abnett is an amazing writer and I for one cannot wait for Gaunt's Ghosts to arrive as well; he's able to easily create interesting and relatable characters in such a vivid fantasy setting that even new readers of the 40K franchise can follow along with the action and events.

    This plays out more like a personal log. An investigation through the imperium and out throughout the 40k universe. Amazingly done.
