Publisher's Summary

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 it 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.

Simply the best

The audio work in the book is unbelievable. The story is breathtaking and fully immerses you in this quest for vengeance. Compared to other 40k audiobooks and even the other inquisition series books this series is by far the most action pack and heartbreaking.

Good 2nd Entry

not quite as good imo as the first book. i found myself getting lost and bored with some of the scenes and characters, but still worth a liste. i think its just a bit too far removed from the first book. same characters and universe, but set like 80 years later from the first book. narrator is the same as the first book so hes still awesome. ill be picking up the third next

A wonderful introduction to warhammer

the 2nd book in the series that got me into warhammer and broke my bank account via the need to read and play warhammer. My wallet might protest but I will forever fondly remember this series as the start of a hobby I have enjoyed for a very long time.

Another great book

the performance was good as previous, but I feel the story was slightly weaker than the previous. it felt like 9 hours of set up with the pay off happening in 1 chapter. unlike the first book where there were constant discoveries and intrigue.

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.

Great book, great narration

Dan Abnett is possibly my favourite writer of current times. This book is a prime example of his class. Loved it from start to finish and can't wait to complete the trilogy. Toby Longworth could narrate tax returns and make them sound like poetry. 100% recommend.

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.

A cracking yarn of intrigue and adventure

Well worth a listen. I read these books years ago and have now discovered a new way in which to enjoy them, albeit with some interruptions - I listen to them in the car on the way to and from work. A great tale that established the Inquisition back in the day when Kasrkin models were new to the scene!

an excellent 40k story

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