Publisher's Summary

Book 3 in the Eisenhorn series.

Inquisitor Eisenhorn returns, and this time he’s on the edge of treachery. How far can he go before he crosses the line and becomes what he is sworn to hunt?

Listen to It Because:

Eisenhorn seeks the truth behind a string of disappearances centred around a travelling carnival and a pictographer whose images are more than they seem. Inquisitor Eisenhorn has saved worlds and beaten bad guys galore, in short, he's a hero. But he's also done some dodgy things, and they're coming back to haunt him... His struggle to justify his actions (especially the daemon summoning) make this an incredibly compelling read and rounds off the trilogy perfectly.

The Story:

Hunted by his former allies as a radical and enemy of the Imperium, Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn must fight to prove that he remains loyal as he tracks down a dangerous heretic whom the Inquisition believes dead, the dread former Inquisitor Quixos. As he grows more desperate for victory, Eisenhorn uses ever darker means to achieve his goals, but how far can he go using the weapons of the enemy until he becomes that very enemy, and no different to the traitor he hunts?

A Powerful Sendoff

Expertly written and performed, with a shift to darker tones. A chilling exploration of hubris.

Fitting end to a trilogy

The final arc of Eisenhorns trilogy. Abnett at his best. If you're reading this you've already read the other books and will love this.

A story with characters you will love and miss. The story of Gregor Eisenhorn is one worth listening to. Keeps you pinned and keep listening. Great character developments and storytelling. Best 40k story ive heard so far.

Story falls Short

Although the performance of the piece has gotten better, the story is weak. Eisenhorn's descent into the chaotic abyss isn't nuanced and is just over the top, while the character attempts to convince himself that he is doing the right thing is eye rolling. Frankly, it just feels relatively out of character, and immersion breaking. If you have to spend half the book telling your readers......I'm doing this for the right reasons....it gets old quick.
Overall, an incredible weak story with a rushed ending and a half-assed throwback villain. Read or Listen to the first book and enjoy. I truly believe Dan Abbot outdid himself on Xenos.

This was Tough

This isn't like the first two. This story is a hard one. I hated every moment that went by. It was painful. I don't mean the writing or narration; they were just as great, as is to be expected. The story was well done too. However, that story hurt. A lot.

I find myself like a huge progressive book more

so far as I've read through the eyes and horn books I have found each one better than the last. this one particularly does a good job of having slow moments when we get to learn more about Eisenhorn, as well as big moments of personal realization. also as usual the combat is fun and exciting.

Couldn’t stop listening!

Great series. Definitely made me a fan of Eisenhorn, not to mention the countless other characters that were skillfully fleshed out and brought to life.
