Shadowhawk reviews Dan Abnett’s first audio drama for his Inquisition novels, Thorn and Talon, featuring characters from the Eisenhorn and Ravenor trilogies.

“Thorn and Talon is some of Dan’s finest work ever and shows why he really understands the more domestic side of the Warhammer 40,000 setting.” ~ The Founding Fields

Thorn and Talon is one of the newest audio dramas from Black Library, coming straight from the master of the setting himself, Dan Abnett. Does that sound like high praise? Good,...more
This collection of 3 short stories made me like the Inquisitors a lot more than some of the Space Marines in their own novellas.

Master Imus's Transgression - I love the atmosphere described in this story - it being dark and creepy, as narrated by Master Imus, a clerk of the Imperium (the voice acting is superb). Inquisitor Eisenhorn investigates Imus' connection to a small crime of fraudulence and it ends up in a delightful discovery, both for Master Imus and the tale's end. A felt a tinge of Lo...more
Master Imus's Transgression
Interesting story of no good deed goes unpunished. Some mathy aspects which were fun. Cool to see Eisenhorn early in his career.

Regia Occulta
Cool almost Jack the Ripper story. Bummed who "Jack" was, but really cool how they got there.

Thorn Wishes Talon
Fun to see Ravenor later in life and interesting to see what had happened to Eisenhorn.
Let me begin with, I am not a gamer so I did not come to these stories from that direction. That makes a bit of difference but not enough to keep me away. I had done a little research as to where to start and in the end, I just jumped in here.

With that said, I just stumbled upon the Warhammer 40k series and I have begun with the Thorn and Talon short stories. I am enthralled with this new reality and yet lost at the same time but just enough to make we want to read more and more to learn more a...more
In my humble opinion, this is one of the better listens(reads)of the audio books selection that provided by the folk at Black Library.
The three stories all work seamlessly well transposed to the audio format and that is mostly due to the fact that Dan Abnett is a good writer and that the characters in the stories are not gene enhanced space marines, who tend to be given pompous, bombastic vocal tones that would be better attributed to an intro to a Manowar song.
I've had the pleasure of reading t...more
Great to have more Eisenhorn and Ravenor stories.

I was initially surprised at the first story being set back in Eisenhorns Interrogator days and had to check I'd got the correct item. Serves me right for not paying attention to the blurbs.

So the first story was interesting and all but lets be fair we're all here for Thorn and Talon.

I loved the story. It bridges story arcs, it shows the genuine affection between the Inquisitors and if you're like me it's going to make you go and re-read the Raven...more

A nice collection of stories that whet my appetite for the upcoming Bequin trilogy (i.e. Eisenhorn vs Ravenor). Thorn Wishes talon fits in between the books of the Ravenor trilogy while Master Imus's Transgression and Regia Occulta give us a nice look at the early career of Gregor Eisenhorn. The stories are all great, but no surprises there, and I really must comment on how good the production was in this audio book.

Very good short stories of the Ordos' greatest inquisitor.

I liked "Regia occulta" the most. And it's a tie between the other two. Made me want to re-re-read Eisenhorn, before I finally get to read the Ravenor trilogy.

Excellent production value !
Oh man. Now I have to go back and read both trilogies again. There were a couple places where it was difficult to hear the narration due to the background audio, but overall it was really fun and made my commute super interesting
Always good to hear abour the inquisitors...
