1809. Viscount Wellington and Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte have made their mark as military commanders. Lifelong enemies, they both believe their armies are strong enough to destroy any rival. But in war victory can never be certain. While Wellington's success continues in Spain, Napoleon feels the sting of failure. Yet despite a disastrous Russian campaign and humiliating defeat at Leipzig, he persists in fighting on.

Simon Scarrow shines in this rendering of the end of the Napolonic wars. Well constructed from both sides (Napoleon and Duke of Wellington) this book was long but I️ seriously couldn’t stop listening til the conclusion of the Waterloo campaign.
Plus Jonathan Keeble’s voice and incredible diction could make the ingredients on a soup can riveting.

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.

I’ve waited for years for the black library to come to audible and I’m glad they offer the 3 credits for $35 because I’ll be binging every Warhammer I can get my hands on.

However, this is the series that got me hooked.
Incredible voice and character depth throughout the novel.
Eisenhorn is supremely well written and gripping and Toby Longworth does the classic sci-fi work credit with his pace and deep tonal quality. I’m so stoked to wrap up the series!

I LOVED Cartwright's Cavaliers and this was a pretty good story too. I'm not even that picky about language but have you ever heard someone use so much profanity that you think "do you have more than 10 words in your vocabulary?" That's how I felt about this writer. Literally uses "f**k" 7 times in a single run-on sentence. Lame :/

Captain Ben Stiger captured Castle Vrell and rid it of a minion of a dark god. Now he finds himself cut off from the empire, with a hostile rebel army marching on the legion's fortress where they guard the entrance to Vrell Valley. It is not in Stiger's nature to simply wait for the enemy. Badly outnumbered and facing odds greater than 20 to one, he sets out to impede the enemy's advance and show them the steel that the legions are made of.

As a big fan of Douglas Jackson's "Hero of Rome" etc and the occasional fantasy romp I was pleased with the detailed look at a new concept.. a Roman legionary surrounded by elves, dwarves, and magic!
