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

Best introduction to 40k

I've been through many audiobooks. But I always find myself go back and listen to Xenos.

Toby Longworth really brings Eisenhorn to life, and I really wish there was a movie about Eisenhorn.

You really feel the characters. They aren't stiff and boring. Every character has their own life and their own ways of separating from the group.

If anything the Eisenhorn series is the best introduction to 40k. I tried Horus heresy but getting anything past Fulgrim becomes hard read. Even listening to. Eisenhorn and Ravenor however gives you the 40k experience .

Brilliant story and paints a very good picture

I like the way Dan Abnett writes these stories, he's very good at painting a picture of the different aspects of the imperium and what it looks like, Toby Longworth is also a very good narrator and he suits eisenhorn brilliantly, i would offer no substitute for Toby, as he also voices different characters well with a good distinction between accents

Well read. Very interesting story with a look into the world of the inquisition. Plenty of action coupled with an HP lovecraft vibe

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.

Great Narration, great story

I got a little distracted during the action scenes. Not sure what was missing, maybe a little more character building. Good story. Great writing.

Great Warhammer Starter

This is a great story to listen to if you’re a fan of science fiction or the Warhammer universe. I just started Warhammer 40k and this book really gave me a good intro into the lore.

The imperium, space marines, chaos cabals, chaos marines, and a sliver of xenos (it’s in the name of the book so you think there would be more, but the xenos race only comes into play in the last few chapters of the book). The story is great, Eisenhorn following bread crumbs it seems like and investigating where/how he can (often getting himself into a bind) to uncover a greater threat.

Great read, worth your time. Finished in a week and a half (to and from my work commutes).

Ruthless and Unstoppable!

The Eisenhorn trilogy was my favorite Warhammer book and I was glad to see the audio book version of the first chapter to listen to. Eisenhorn, the ruthless inquisitor- hunting down the heretics. Along the way, Abnett gives him a nice supporting cast- Although no Harlin Nail yet. It's also interesting since I know where Eisenhorn's arc takes him, watching his decisions unfold and seeing the changes he goes through. I can't wait to hear the next two novels. And when will Abnett finish the next book in the Bequin Trilogy? Well, At least have the next Eisenhorn audiobook to tie me over.
