Publisher's Summary

When his body is hideously damaged in an enemy attack, it looks as though Inquisitor Gideon Ravenor's promising career would be abruptly brought short. Now, encased in a life support sytem that keeps him alive but forever cuts him off from the physical world, Ravenor utilises his formidable mental powers to continue his investigations. Along with his retinue of warriors and assassins, Gideon Ravenor fights to protect an Imperium he can no longer see, hear or feel.

Magnificent!

First impressions made me think it was a little crass(adult language), but after listening to its entirety, I am glad I finished the book. Top marks for characters; from backstory to in-story implementation, everything fits together perfectly. only criticism follows; one character is voiced differently throughout the book, starting with one voice before switching to a distinctly different voice and manner. however, this is toward the end of the book and the character has few lines, less than a dozen. So only a very minor issue.

Thank you for writing this book(Dan Abnett) and for providing such a fantastic oration(Toby Longworth)!

Great story. I have a new favorite Character.

It is best summed up as a deep story building. Defiinatly in for the long haul. I like it better even than the eisenhorn books. And that is saying something. However I now cannot wait to start book two.

This voice actor is the best I've ever heard.

The performance is amazing, and the story is great. Like a well written DnD game.

Fantastic Novel, Fantastic Audio Book

Really enjoyed this not only as a novel but also as an audio book.
Toby Longworth is amazing. The voices for each character are good.
Dan Abnett knocked it out of the park again. The climax of the book feels like a film!
An excellent start to the Ravenor Trilogy.

Forgot how good it started

Really enjoyed experiencing this book again. Had me riveted from beginning to end, amazing read.
Get the Eisenhorn trilogy first, then dive in to this.

simply amazing

I have to admit after the eisenhorn series was not sure how this series would stand up to it. it matched it toe for toe and I will now go to the next two ravanor books.

Great story, not whisper synchrd

While as always Dan Abnett does a fantastic job with the story, I found the volume fluctuated between characters greatly.
It was very easy for external noise to drown out some of them, even with noise cancelling headphones.

One of the best performances I ever heard

Loved the performance. The voices may not be to everyones likeing but its easy to distinguish the individual characters. As for the story its ok with a few twists but mostly builds for the future. If your on the fence, plunge right in to an interesting world.
