Publisher's Summary

The Inquisition moves amongst mankind like an avenging shadow, striking down the enemies of humanity with uncompromising ruthlessness. When he finally corners an old foe, Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn is drawn into a sinister conspiracy. As events unfold and he gathers allies - and enemies - Eisenhorn faces a vast interstellar cabal and the dark power of daemons, all racing to recover an arcane text of abominable power: an ancient tome known as the Necroteuch.

No one expects the Imperial Inquisition!

I've always been a fan of 40k books and Dan Abnett's "Gaunt's Ghosts" are some of the best out there. Naturally, I was very excited to try out anything else he's written. The Eisenhorn series is a fascinating step back from the never ending war of the 41st Millennium and into the guts of the Imperium. The book reads more as an investigation than a war story and really lets you appreciate the parts of the universe that aren't actively on fire all the time. It works incredibly well as an audiobook because it reads like Inquisitor Eisenhorn's personal account of what happened.

Thank the Emperor!!!!

Black Library books have finally come to Audible, and this is one of the greatest. I see many, many credits being spent for the foreseeable future.

And the Eisenhorn Trilogy is a fantastic introduction for audible users with no experience in the Warhammer universe.

Annette at his harrowing best!

Dan Abnett starts his Eisenhorn trilogy off with a blistering fireball! The performance was absolutely superb, with the variety of voices and dialects clear and entertaining.

Warhammer 40K novel with a fantastic performance. I own these books but it was great to hear it read out loud.

Maybe the best introduction to this universe

This was my first Warhammer 40k novel and it was rather fun. The author did a fine job in making sure not to get too arcane with their references and leaving a new comer confused with the mythos.

Eiseshorn got some mad plot armor

It is suspenseful and vivid. Eiseshorn has some powerful plot armor though. Probably will read the next book.

Exciting and well developed sf classic

Abnett demonstrates why he will always be the most respected warhammer author. All the extreme violence aside Abnett excels at painting rich and fascinatingly detailed worlds and that's exactly what you get along with engrossing characters and an exciting plot. Can't wait for number 2.

Another good Dan Abnet book.

I've always struggled reading the eisenhorn books, but listening is 100x better.
The style and language us much more immersive when been read too. I'll have to revisit the rest of the eisonhorn books as audio books now.

Inquisition at its finest

Abnett captures the grim dark setting. Bureaucratic societies where everyone has an agenda. The utter dread of chaos. And the cleansing role of an inquisitor and the uniqueness in their individual methods. A great Warhammer novel, an even better sci-fi story.

One of 40k best stories.

Highly recommended, By far one of my favourite stories within the 40k universe.

A great representation of the inquisitive struggle with the chaos faction.

Compelling story, told well

Xenos is a fantastic window into the world of Warhammer 40k good for both starters and fans of the franchise. Capable of crime-novel intrigue, chilling elements of thriller, and clearly described yet elabourate action scenes, tied together with a gifted narrator that gives life and clarity to dialogue.

While enriched by the knowledge, Xenos is told as such that it can be enjoyed with no prior knowledge of the universe. Conversely, franchise knowledge will not spoil all its secrets, leaving a developing mystery to grip all readers.

great entry into the 40k world of the inquisition.

Loved the story, excellent narration. Keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time and submerge you nicely into the story.
