Publisher's Summary

Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn has spent his life stalking the darkest and most dangerous limits of the Imperium in pursuit of heresy and Chaos. But how long can a man walk that path without succumbing to the lure of the Warp? Is Eisenhorn still a champion of the Throne, or has he been seduced by the very evil that he hunts? 

Warhammer 40,000’s most beloved antihero finally returns in a stunning new novel that pits him against his oldest and most constant foe and forces him to confront the true darkness of his own self. For the first time ever, the Black Library presents the definitive casebook of Gregor Eisenhorn, collecting all of Dan Abnett’s celebrated Inquisitor short stories into a single epic volume. The stories, some of which have never been released before, have been compiled and introduced by the author to serve as an indispensable companion to the acclaimed Eisenhorn trilogy and to act as an essential prologue to The Magos, a brand-new full-length Eisenhorn novel.

I loved it.

The short-stories seem disconnected at first, just fun filler to flesh out the world, its characters and Eisenhorn himself.

But all of them, in greater or lesser degree, build up the Magos story in ways unseen fully until the end. It felt like going through a short series and as somebody who never read or listened to a single thing in the Eisenhorn series, I damn well will now.

One of Dan Abnett's best

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, although I would say to fully enjoy the book you have to have read the others in the series

What did you like best about this story?

Wrapped up the character Eisenhorn. There is a wee bit of deus machina towards the end but otherwise fantasic book

What does Toby Longworth bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Yes, I love him as a voice actor.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Magos Dursha was the best. Seeing a normal imperial citizen thrust into the enormity that was the closing of this chapter in Eisenhorns career gave the whole story charm and contrast.

Any additional comments?

Read the others in the series (Xenos, Hereiticus, Maleus) before you read this one.

Good story bad audio

The short stories were good, some publish before and new content which were tied nicely together in the main novel at the end.

The conversation between Eisenhorn and Alizebeth sent chills across my skin - so good Dan!

Whoever process the audio has not finalised it properly, making hard d to listen to. It’s not too bassly but it’s as if the mods are too high or something has been striped and the balance is off.
The narrator is the same as in the Warmaster (Gaunt’s Ghost novel) and the audio was fine in that production.
The result was that I couldn’t use Airpods ( not great sound but ok for spoken word and convenience ) as the sound was uncomfortable/harsh but had to used closed backed headphones. This help round out the deficiency.

Before you read

I think it is important to understand that this is laid out as a set of short stories, but the final story (normal length) has it all tie together.

The best 40k book

A return to form for Dan Abnett, this is the best work of his for years. Going into it blind it first seemed to be a collection of short stories, but they do all come together eventually.

Short stories, no just phases in the same story.

Short stories, no just phases in the same story.

half way through started getting the next chapter for a character, introduced earlier.
By the end, it was pulling all the parts together, triggering the "Hang on a minute" response as you started to know more than the characters did.

Entertaining, well written, excellent narration and well worth your time.

The Magos is an Intelligently wrought, deftly written collection of short tales crowned by a novella that falls just a little short of sparkling towards the end.

Abnett has a master wordsmith’s command of the language of fantastical imaginings. The only thing that holds the world that he build back from being entirely a submersive experience is a lack of playing by the rules of verisimilitude in the last quarter or so of the book.

In order to enjoy fantasy seriously, there is a certain amount of suspension of disbelief required. And an adequate combination of grit, realism, consistency and adherence to the basic laws of whatever worlds that you’re going to build are requirements to get jaded and cynical readers like me to hop on board.

If you’re going to start madly pulling rabbits out of hats that no one remembered seeing worn into the show in the first place, my interest in sticking around for more begins to wane.

The narrator did an energetic & thoroughly outstanding job.

Great story's a little slow

Great to read the works of gregor eishenhorn in one audio book. Very happy. The final book seemed to drag a little and the magos takes some time to become a member of the team. Some great moments from a great series.

Eisenhorns back!

I've always enjoyed Eisenhorns adventures but thought his solo stories were done. So I was very interested when I saw The Magos. And I was not disappointed. Good story with some familiar and some new characters. A wee bit drawn out towards the end but somewhat necessarily I suppose.
Great narration by Toby Longworth.
