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.

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.

Another high bar for narration

After finishing the first book, I had to wait to get the second on my free credit. But this was worth the wait. Once again, the narrator did a phenomenal job, firmly placing the bar into the top spot for me. Just like the first book, this one had me from the first word to the last. Never a dull moment. Never felt like I had to slog through boring bits. Never felt like a chore. This series has become a favorite, and I'm definitely going to be listening to them again.

Excellent. Purge the alien.

Exactly what I hope for from the Warhammer universe. Plenty of battle, Xenos slaying and a good pace overall.

could not put this down!

I've never played 40K , but if I did I would want to bass my Army around this book! characters are awesome ,the struggles seem as real as you could get in a fantasy story. if every book in 40K fluff is this good I don't think I'll ever run out of reading material.

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.

It was a little jump cutty, but worth a listen if you like the universe. lots of characters too, which made it harder to follow than last story

Eisenhorns Journey Towards the Darkside Begins in

A hundred years have past since we last fought the powers of Chaos at Gregor and his retinues side.
A Demonic entity mistakes another Inquisitor for Eisenhorn talking to him in a friendly manner before realising it's mistake. This event raises eyebrows and turns the suspicious eye of the Holy Inquisition of the God Emperor firmly in Eisenhorn's direction. Then all hell breaks loose.
Old friends reunited and new faces join the fray in a race across the galaxy in an effort to thwart the dark enemy.
excellent book, well written and as ever perfect narration.

Eisenhorn is really OP and this can be a bit cheesy at times but it's still an engaging and interesting story.

an excellent 40k story

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