Publisher's Summary

From out of the shadows of the Silent War, a hero emerges. Clad all in grey, an errant warrior of the Legiones Astartes kneels before the Regent of Terra, and accepts a solemn new duty - Battle-Captain Garro, once commander of the Eisenstein, now Agentia Primus of Malcador the Sigillite.

From the desolation of Isstvan to the halls of the Imperial Palace itself, he stands as a paragon of loyalty and protector of the innocent, ever ready to strike back at the traitorous allies of the Warmaster. But Garro is walking a path of his own, one that may lead him to question his own place in the Imperium...and what if he, too, should falter?

This audiobook contains James Swallow's complete saga of Nathaniel Garro in the Horus Heresy - the audio drama series is embellished and expanded in prose, with additional scenes to represent the author's original vision. This all serves as prelude to the events of the novella Vow of Faith, bringing Garro closer to his inescapable destiny as the first true martyr of the Lectitio Divinitatus.

Critic Reviews

" Garro is not a collection of short stories - it's James Swallow's full novelisation of Nathaniel Garro's story arc, something we've previously only seen (in part) in the audio dramas and novella. There are new and extended scenes, whole new chapters in fact, making this just about the most definitive exploration of the founding of the Knights Errant, and everything that comes after...." (Laurie Goulding, The Horus Heresy series editor)

Great Anthology of Garro stories.

Great set of books about the legendary Garro. Shows Garro's growth from Malcador's puppet to true believer of the Imperial Creed.

Great work!

There needs to be more stories written about Garro especially during the Siege of Terra. It would be an exciting read to imagine Garro and the other Ghosts become the first Grey Knights.

My first Black Library audio book

I've read many from the Horus Heresy but this was my first audio book from the series. After much deliberating which book to pick first I'm extremely glade Garro was my first. A must for anyone interested in the 40K world.

The Emperor protects.

Not sure where to go after reading/listening to Flight of The Eisenstein? This is the book to pick up.

Great character follow

Even though this is an amalgamation of shorter stories, this really is the best example to tell of Garro once you've read Flight of the Eisenstein. Great follow on for any fans of the early books of the HH series with a few characters being reprised present and their story arcs being continued.

One of the best HH books

I really enjoyed the book, great story and well read by my favourite reader Toby Longworth.

I'm not a great Garrod fan and in my opinion The Flight of Eisenstein is overrated, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It has just the right amount of intrigue, battle, drama and lore reveals. Can't recommend enough to any one interested in the Horus Heresy series!

Perfect. The Emperor approves.

Garro of the Eisentein, Agenta Primus, Legion of one, Knight Errant, 1st true Martyr of the Lecticio Divinatus. A mandatory reading for all Loyalists.

Hand of the Sigilite

A great story, overall. A few parts where it struggled a little, but overall fairly compelling and some interesting twists and turns!

The voice acting was great, particuarly Malcador and the Assassin.

Nathaniel Garro remains a firm favourite of the HH series!
