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.

At long last

An excellent introduction to those not to familiar with the universe. And a delight for veterans of the 41st milenium as well

More enjoyable than I expected!

In all honesty I wasn't expecting this to be brilliant. I'm a former occasional wargamer and find this as a daily deal, so I decided it was worth a go. And I am very pleasantly surprised! Good story line set in the 40k universe with baked and betrayals aplenty add you'd expect. Good pace to the story, never left feeling bored.

In short a very pleasant surprise and I will look for more in the series now.

Fantastic

As someone who loved Warhammer 40k as a child, I've come back to it as I have my own son now who is into the gaming. I always enjoyed the lore or 40k, and decided to delve into the books. I am very pleased that I chose Xenos as one of my first books. The story is excellent, and the narration by Toby Longworth is really first rate. What really stands out is the story stands so well on its own, you don't have to be a fan of the 40k universe to enjoy.

Classic of its town

I listened to the audiobook of this as a freebie from Audible.

I knew Dan Abnett from comics and so was reasdured that this would be more than a war based gore fest. despite playing the game for six or so years this is the first 40k book I've read, and I loved it. it's strength is the gradual build up of universe detail from the citizen upwards, and the unit that Eisenhorn runs. they have enough quirks to hold attention as he moved through a steady plot towards a big finale.

as a Deathwatch player I got a buzz when they popped up. definitely getting next two.

Eisenhorn

This Warhammer 40,000 tale is a slow burn but stick with it to the end.

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.

Annette at his harrowing best!

Dan Abnett starts his Eisenhorn trilogy off with a blistering fireball! The performance was absolutely superb, with the variety of voices and dialects clear and entertaining.

Warhammer 40K novel with a fantastic performance. I own these books but it was great to hear it read out loud.

Amazing Adaptation of Excellent Book

This is one of my favorite books of all time. The narrator is excellent and does the story justice.

A great start to one of the best 40k series

I enjoyed this audiobook greatly. The story is well written and the performance is great as well. This great way to get into the 40k universe.

great book

first 40k book I've heard. it was great. the story was engaging and having some basic understanding of the world allowed me to make assumptions that turned out to be true later on. also the performance was great. if sometimes comical.

Gold Standard for Narration

This was my first book on audible. First audio book in general, at that. However, the Eisenhorn books came highly recommended, and they did not disappoint. From start to finish, this book had my attention, to the point I sometimes had to stop listening because I forgot what I was doing, which isn't good when you're driving. The Narrator set a very high bar for me. He was perfect, and having now listened to several other audio books, I find myself wishing he had narrated them. As it was for me, I Highly recommend this book, and even this series, to anyone that loves scifi.
