Publisher's Summary

Book 2 in the Eisenhorn series.

Inquisitor Eisenhorn must track down and defeat the forces who would destroy him or face the wrath of the Ordo Malleus....

Listen to It Because:

Eisenhorn's back in a classic thriller. What could be cooler than an inquisitor on the run for a crime he didn't commit? Not much. How much is Eisenhorn willing to compromise himself – and his closest friends – and risk his soul for a chance to clear his name?

The Story:

A century after his recovery of the alien Necroteuch, Gregor Eisenhorn is one of the Imperial Inquisition's most celebrated agents. But when a face from his past returns to haunt him, and he is implicated in a great tragedy that devastates the world of Thracian Primaris, Eisenhorn's universe crumbles around him. The daemon Cherubael is back, and seeks to bring the inquisitor to ruin - either by his death, or by turning him to the service of the Dark Gods.

Kirito Eisenhorn

This one didn't quite give the same feel as the first. All of Eisenhorn's problems get tidied up too nicely and too easily. The villains didn't feel as threatening, nor their plots as interesting. The reveal at the end, however, leaves me with so many questions I'm dying to have answered. While Eisenhorn's plot armor is amped up I feel like I saw a side to him that I hadn't seen before and I have to know more.

not as good as the first but still enjoyable

I thought it was a good story overall, the narration is it excellent. I just don't know if it was me and I zoned out here and there but sometimes I found it hard to follow and then I would snap back to and ask myself what is going on. It would take me some time to figure out what they were doing and where they were. Probably was just me getting distracted frequently throughout the book or it could have been the book just wasn't as enthralling as the first.

Excellent

loved it. Longworth brings a stunning performance to a wonderful piece of fiction.

I will admit that I found it slow to start after the opening scene, but I stuck with it and thoroughly enjoyed the payoff. Largely, this can be attributes to Longworth's narration and rendition of each character.

The story is quite good indeed, a great read... but Longworth makes the entire piece excellent.

The Quintessential Eisenhorn book

Of the 3 books and collected anthology, this is the best. It is Act II in a 3 act play, this is the part where the characters shine.

Toby Longworth is an excellent narrator.

Toby Longworth really stands out to me as an excellent narrator, and his ability to be consistent with both subtle and not so subtle character identities is impressive. The story itself is one of the most iconic set to the Warhammer 40,000 backdrop.

Loved it

Narration great but cringed slightly at the mutant "twist" dialogue. Listening to the evil characters with some noise cancelling headphones is truly harrowing.

Story also good but ending felt very rushed - you spend 9 hours going through the story and then it is all wrapped up in the space of a few minutes with a comment along the lines of "everything was sorted". It felt like a cop-out given the amount of time given to fairly trivial parts of the story. I suspect the author was struggling to cut the story down to an acceptable length.

Another outstanding performance by the narrator who manages to capture our beloved inquisitor's voice perfectly.

Gets bombarded with characters

the first Eisenhorn book was excellent, exciting and well told which a plot that kept you thinking. This following 100 years after the first book starts off the same and continues till about half way where I felt it got overwhelmed with new characters and monologuing.

Fantastic book, keeps you hooked in the series.

Eisenhorn is Warhammer 40k, the story is filled with grimdark delights and swashbuckling heroics, I would recommend this to anyone who like dark tales in dark times and those that are stand against the shadows

Dan Abnett at his finest

Can a pure man slide into damnation without changing a single ideal? This is the underlying theme of the Eisenhorn trilogy.
Beautifully constructed characters and a storyline right out of epic Greek tragedy, this book is a great example of how a skilled author can take even rhe most chaotic setting (pun intended) and uplifts it into a story that resonates to the reader.

Pretty Good but...

The reading is immersive and the story for the most part makes sense. But, there are several occasions where it seems like the author forgot Eisenhorn's inability to make facial expressions, kind of brole the immersion at times but all around still a nice book.

an excellent 40k story

Dan Abnett is an exceptional writer, and Toby Longworth's performance leaves little to be desired.
