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.

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.

Another fantastic tale by Dan Abnett.

A marvelous and deep crafting of the Warhammer 40k universe into an accessible adventure and mystery. Dramatic improvement in narration over the previous audio book, but the audio quality could use improvement.

In a universe far far away … it is the dark ages.

Malleus: Warhammer 40,000
Dan Abnett

A long time ago in a universe far far away … it is the dark ages.

This is Star Wars… but envisioned by Clive Barker, with detailed notes from H.P. Lovecraft, and rocking to a heavy-metal beat.

THE SETTING:
The Future. Man-kind's Emperium covers the universe. Humans travel great distances by sailing star-ships through "warp space". Manned by psychics who can guide ships through warp space.

THE DANGER:
Unfortunately, "the Warp" is not just the empty space between stars. It's another dimension. The big unspoken truth of this universe is the Warp might be hell. It's full of horrible ghosts. Human and alien dead. Some have evolved into vastly powerful demonic beings & monster-gods. Unfortunately, by the time man-kind figured this out, the Emperium is as wide, and to travel anywhere you HAVE too use the warp.

A DARK UNIVERSE:
The battle to save the human race from corruption from the Warp has been waging for many thousands of years … and is not going well.
Like in the middle ages, much knowledge has been lost.
Superstition has risen.
Science has devolved into a religion where tech-priests pray to machine-spirits.
Ancient and gigantic, battle-ships travel through the void. Many of their gothic-cathedral interiors are now dark and vacant as humanity's armies decrease.

A DARK UNIVERSE so dangerous, so lavish in gothic, dark detail it teeters your mind on the edge of insanity. Mutant-monsters from the WARP threaten the human universe in a epic war that has no end.

WHAT WILL SAVE US?
What will save humanity from this EXTREMELY frightening vision of the future?

The most powerful thing in the universe is… love.

Dan Abnett's beautifully written characters.
No matter how dire or vile their situation, they are bound together by the greatest power in the universe: LOVE.

Warm-heartfelt friendship, respect, love for their "Master" Eisenhorn, and each other - These friends and comrades fight vast darkness with strength, wit, warmth, humor, and a a eternal feeling that the human spirit will always rise above all the chaotic darkness out of the WARP.

This is brilliant literature not to be missed.

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.

A great book with the narrator

I really enjoyed the first eisenhorn book, and this one was even better. Further developing characters from the first book and Toby Longworth does a supreme job as narrator. Worth every penny!

The best 40k fiction.

Toby Longworths performance captures the atmosphere of the setting perfectly.

Having read the book myself several years ago I had my own ideas about the characters and environments. The audio performance enhanced rather than conflicted with my preconceptions.

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