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: Naturally, I was very excited to try out anything else he’s dxn.
The Eisenhorn series is a fascinating step back from the never ending war of the 41st Millennium and into the guts of the Da. 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 dqn what happened.
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. This book was my first exposure to 40K.
An enjoyable read, though I’m san 40K enthusiasts will appreciate it more than I did.
Xenos: Warhammer 40,000
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. Dan Abnett starts his Eisenhorn xnos off with a blistering fireball! The performance was absolutely superb, with the variety of voices and dialects clear and entertaining.
Warhammer 40K novel with a fantastic performance. I own these books but it was great to hear it read out loud. This is one of my favorite books of all time. The narrator is excellent and does the story justice. Well written and wonderfully performed!
I enjoyed it throughout, and will be reading the rest of the series. This was unbelievably good.
If you like 40k, 40k lore or just awesome sci fi from an immensely detailed universe and a truly exceptional author, try this book. I really loved listening to this book.
Not a 40k or a sci-fi fan, got this to help me fall asleep. Well, I’m that regard it was a failure; By the 3rd night I was too caught up in the story to fall asleep at all.
So pleased that black library have opened access to their audio book collection to audible. Such well produced product and a skilled xenoa to boot. A very Immersive story. Abnett demonstrates why he will always be the most respected warhammer author. All the extreme violence aside Abnett excels at painting rich and fascinatingly detailed worlds and that’s exactly what xejos get along with engrossing characters and an exciting plot. Can’t wait for number 2.
Can’t wait to get my next credit for the next in the series! Meant to be as good. An excellent introduction to those not to familiar with the universe. And a delight for veterans of the 41st milenium as well. A book about a member of the 40k imperial inquisition.
Narrator really brings this book to life, I can also say I’ve always been a fan of Orks and Necrons and less so the Imperium, but this book and I assume the next two has changed that. A truly brilliant reading of the first in Abnett’s Eisenhorn trilogy. A characterful and engaging narration, making full use of the anett first person perspective and drawing the listener in.
Prescribed listening for all acolytes. Abnett captures the grim dark setting. Bureaucratic societies where everyone has an agenda. The utter dread of chaos. And the cleansing role of an inquisitor and the uniqueness in their individual methods. A great Warhammer novel, an even better sci-fi story. Highly recommended, By far one of my favourite stories within the 40k universe.
A great representation of the inquisitive struggle with the chaos faction. The best 40k book I have listened too thus far. A great and thrilling intro into an amazing series. I read Xenos a few ages and thought it would be a good choice to start getting into audio books and I must say it was amazing. Toby Longworth does an amazing job narrating and keeping my attention, I never wanted to stop listening.
Another great book by Dan Abnett. I’ll confess I was a little bored by the setting of the scene early in the book.
Xenos by Dan Abnett
The latter stage of the story more than makes up for it however. The audio is less than ideal. It seems to be either too soft or too loud. Xenos is a fantastic window into the world of Warhammer 40k good for both starters and fans of the franchise. Capable of crime-novel intrigue, chilling elements of thriller, and clearly described yet elabourate action scenes, tied together with a gifted narrator that gives life and clarity to dialogue.
While enriched by the knowledge, Xenos is told as such that it can be enjoyed with no prior knowledge of the universe. Conversely, franchise knowledge will not spoil all its secrets, leaving a developing mystery to grip all readers. Loved the story, excellent narration. Keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time and submerge you nicely into the story.
