SCIENCE FICTION AUDIO BOOK REVIEW: Warhammer 40K: Talon and Thorn - Dan Abnett

Release Date: 08/12/11


Thorn and Talon is available as a two-disk CD set or as an MP3 download. It contains three separate audio dramas featuring Inquisitors Eisenhorn and Ravenor.
Master Imus's Transgression

Master Imus, a mild-mannered clerk, has a confession to make - he has unwittingly conspired in a crime. Inquisitor Eisenhorn investigates, and finds that the trail laid by this unassuming servant of the Imperium leads to unexpected places and a dangerous showdown.
Regia Occulta

On a world wracked by storms, Inquisitor Eisenhorn investigates a series of bizarre murders. Aided by local officials and using arcane methods of detection, Eisenhorn must decipher the secret of Regia Occulta and stop the bestial killer before it strikes again.
Thorn Wishes Talon

Inquisitor Ravenor travels to a distant world, summoned by a mysterious message. Attacked by vicious Chaos cultists, Ravenor's faithful companions battle to survive, to meet their mysterious correspondent and to discover the meaning behind the message: Thorn Wishes Talon.


A cracking two disk Audio Book featuring stories written by Dan Abnett and wonderfully produced by Heavy Studio’s. It’s well written, the vocal talent does the job well and all in it’s a great way to spend some time with the Inquisition care of Eisenhorn and Ravenor. Add to this solid script, cracking dialogue and of course three tales that you can dip into for short periods and it’s a cracking title all round. I hope that more of these short tales are produced as it’s a great way to eke out excitement of the first listening for quite a while. Great stuff.
