Description

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.

Magnificent Voice beautifully narrated

I was impressed by the different characters one can incorporate. The sci fi fantasy story is complex, structured and creative.

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.

A great listen even for a warhammer 40K novice.

I've never read any Warhammer 40K books and have little knowledge of the universe but I ended up loving this book.

I was hesitant at the beginning thinking I wouldn't understand what was going on but the book delivers the listener just enough information to understand the universe without it being overwhelming, the story itself was far more interesting and rich than I initially thought and I got really involved with it by the end.

Great voice acting from the cast.

I would recommend this book to any who likes scf-fi.

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.

First foray into Warhammer 40k universe...Awesome

After knowing of the WH40K universe for quite some time but never exploring it, I decided to take in a few youtube videos about the overall storyline.

After that, i decided to try one of the many books on Audible and decided based on reviews and ratings this was a good place to start.

It is. The book is an interesting and exciting listen. The narrator does an amazing job and his voice suits the characters and universe perfectly. Especially when he goes extra deep for the terrifying and commanding voices of a chaos marine, or to deliver an especially powerful psychic command.

Ill be continuing immediately onto books 2 and 3 and look forward to hear and learn more about this dark, gritty and morbidly terrifying universe.

Great Warhammer Starter

This is a great story to listen to if you’re a fan of science fiction or the Warhammer universe. I just started Warhammer 40k and this book really gave me a good intro into the lore.

The imperium, space marines, chaos cabals, chaos marines, and a sliver of xenos (it’s in the name of the book so you think there would be more, but the xenos race only comes into play in the last few chapters of the book). The story is great, Eisenhorn following bread crumbs it seems like and investigating where/how he can (often getting himself into a bind) to uncover a greater threat.

Great read, worth your time. Finished in a week and a half (to and from my work commutes).

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

Amazing Adaptation of Excellent Book

This is one of my favorite books of all time. The narrator is excellent and does the story justice.

Not for the uninitiated.

This book was my first exposure to 40K. An enjoyable read, though I'm sure 40K enthusiasts will appreciate it more than I did. The book avoids descriptions of common vehicles, equipment, and world building which assumes a level of familiarity I did not posses. At best it made the story difficult to visualize, at worst there were segments of the story that devolved into word salad.

I would not recommend this book to 40K noobs like me.

Großartig für Fans, Gut für noch nicht Fans

Das Hörbuch ist hervorragend produziert. Der Sprecher haucht allen Chakteren Leben ein. Besonders Longworths Eisenhorn ist beeindruckend.

Die Geschichte ist, wenn auch kein Meisterwerk, spannend und schlüssig. Selbst mit nur einfachen Englisch Kenntnissen sollte die Geschichte gut verständlich sein bis auf meinen einzig nennenswerten Kritikpunkt.

Einziger Kritikpunkt: Sehr viele Fachausdrücke. Für mich als langjähriger Warhammer 40K Kenner kein Problem für Einsteiger könnte das ganze jedoch manchmal hakelig werden.

Die Geschichte ist konstant aus der Perspektive des Hauptcharakters geschrieben und als erfahrener Inquisitor ist so einiges selbstverständlich für den guten Gregor Eisenhorn was Einsteiger in die Welt von Warhammer 40.000 verwirren könnte.

Dennoch aus meiner Sicht ein sehr empfehlenswertes Buch. Im Vergleich zu anderen Büchern wird in dieser Reihe auch das "normale" Leben der Bürger des Imperiums geschildert und die Abgründe die sich auftun können.

Mein erster Schritt ins 41. Millenium!

Das erste Buch der Eisenhorn-Trilogie wurde mir als guter Einstieg in die umfangreiche Welt des 41. Milleniums empfohlen und das Hörbuch hat mich definitiv nicht entäuscht. Eine spannende, actionreiche Geschichte mit dichter Atmosphäre. Da ich aus anderen Quellen einiges an Vorwissen mitbringe konnte ich mich gut in der Story zurecht finden, für absolute Neueinsteiger könnte die Story jedoch hier und da etwas erschlagend sein.
Toby Longworth ist ein ausgezeichneter Leser, der jeder wichtigen Figur eine eigene Stimme verleiht. Es sollte lediglich angemerkt sein, dass die relativ hohe Dichte Warhammer-eigener Fachbegriffe und Abnett's sehr deskriptiver Schreibstil ein fortgeschrittenes englisches Sprachverständnis erfordern.
Wenn das kein Problem ist kann ich das Hörbuch nur wärmsten weiterempfehlen. Ich bin schon gespannt auf die Fortsetzung und gerade im audible-Abo sind die 10€ definitiv ein fairer Preis!

Fine read Story from Abnett

It's the start of the famous Eisenhorn/Ravenor saga.
Although you might want to get the Magos book first, since it holds stories before and in-between the original published books. So to properly start this book, you might start with the first one or two novels from the Magos.

But back to this specific book.

The story is a very well written, well timed hunt for an heretic artefact. And the author avoids the annoying habit of constantly repeating himself. A trait many other books suffer from.
The reader has also done a very good job. Once again a good job on timing and speed.
The only shortcoming is the little quality of the recording. It seems the compression removed most of the upper and lower frequencies and so it sounds very flat. Which is sad. A little more on the lower frequencies would have improved the listening experience by far.
But it's still OK.

All in all a very good audio book and a great story.

Endlich!

Großer Fan des warhammer Universum. Endlich auch auf audible! Habe mich ja schon sehr gefreut, im kindle zu lesen, denn die paperback sind stapeln sich langsam. Tolles Gefühl beim Hören und klasse Effekte! Geschichte eine der großen der Serie. Als erstbuch vielleicht ein wenig anspruchsvoll, da Begriffe und Sprache fordernd sind. Wer aber nicht an Zahlen denkt, wenn er warp hört, sollte es versuchen!
