Hunted by his former allies as a radical and enemy of the Imperium, Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn must fight to prove that he remains loyal as he tracks down a dangerous heretic whom the Inquisition believes dead, the dread former Inquisitor Quixos. As he grows more desperate for victory, Eisenhorn uses ever darker means to achieve his goals, but how far can he go using the weapons of the enemy until he becomes that very enemy and no different to the traitor he hunts?

I really loved this series sad to see it end! I felt like the ending of all three books seemed rushed and thrown together. but they were still enjoyable

It is the 32nd millennium, and the Imperium is at peace. The Traitor Legions of Chaos are but a distant memory, and the many alien races that have long plagued mankind are held in check by the Space Marines. When a mission to exterminate one such xenos breed on the world of Ardamantua draws in more of their forces, the Imperial Fists abandon the walls of Terra for the first time in more than a thousand years.

I really did not like this book. I thought there was going to be much more fighting. turns out its about 90 percent politics. seems like the book was rushed.

This book is a must read/listen, the narration is hands down the best I've heard, the voices of each character is amazing and gives such life to the book that I don't think I could muster in my head reading it quietly to myself.

I thought this book was good, but not as good as the prior three. I feel that the further I get into the series the less the books amaze me, but they are still great. I really have an issue with this audio book though. I think the prior 3 books narrated by Toby Longworth were superior. Jonathan Keeble made everyone sound like Skaven rats making all the characters sound pathetic, even Horus sounded like a skeevy little rat, This is my biggest issue with the audio book.
