Publisher's Summary

Book 2 in the Eisenhorn series.

Inquisitor Eisenhorn must track down and defeat the forces who would destroy him or face the wrath of the Ordo Malleus....

Listen to It Because:

Eisenhorn's back in a classic thriller. What could be cooler than an inquisitor on the run for a crime he didn't commit? Not much. How much is Eisenhorn willing to compromise himself – and his closest friends – and risk his soul for a chance to clear his name?

The Story:

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 seeks to bring the inquisitor to ruin - either by his death, or by turning him to the service of the Dark Gods.

Good

Very good book but kind of fizzled out in the end. Still love the Eisenhorn universe though. The narrator is a perfect choice for this series, I enjoy the Audio book as much for the story as Toby Longworth’s reading of it. Well I’m off to get the third A-book in the series.

I really enjoyed the first Eisenhorn book, and dam. if I don't enjoy this one even more. Great writing, with such an interesting character, great narration, and overall an awesome place to keep dipping your toes into Warhammer 40K novels.

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.

Excellent

loved it. Longworth brings a stunning performance to a wonderful piece of fiction.

I will admit that I found it slow to start after the opening scene, but I stuck with it and thoroughly enjoyed the payoff. Largely, this can be attributes to Longworth's narration and rendition of each character.

The story is quite good indeed, a great read... but Longworth makes the entire piece excellent.

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.

Gregor Eisenhorn is a beast!

Can't wait to hear what happens in the next book! I will say that I really enjoy this series and in the realm of 40k what I find most refreshing in this vast universe, is how the inquisition seems to observe it from a centered focal point.
