Best Warhammer author with surprisingly good narrating

I didn’t like Toby Longworth narrating “Mechanicum”, so I was worried I wouldn’t like him here.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that he reads the story perfectly.

I went from 15 books of the Horus Heresy to this title, and it seems to be a painless transition to the later Warhammer timeline.

It’s good but a bit dry

This was my first 40k book and I expected to love the inquisitor stuff but overall I was just a bit bored. Still solid audio and performances.
