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.

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.

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.

Thorn wishes Talon...

This is a FANTASTIC piece of entertainment. If it's been a while, and you have time, I would suggest a brush-up on the original complete Eisenhorn and Ravenor to better understand some of the relationships. I only have one qualm with this book, and that is the way it started. The separate short stories make it seem that that's all you're getting, when in fact they serve a greater purpose for the complete story. Dan Abnett is one hell of a talent and Toby Longworth is on par with the great Roy Dotrice!

Great Story

What started out looking like a series of mini stories eventually all ties together into a grand tale is a very cool way. Also interesting is how for the majority of the time, the story is seen by the eyes of someone who isn’t Eisenhorn, which I enjoyed.

fantastic

starting with the Esienhorn trilogy, then Ravenor trilogy, closing with the Magos is perfect. Love the series.

A weak part of a great series.

I really wanted to like this book. The narration, as usual, was fantastic. I just felt the book was kind of jumbled and the tone was all over the place. I enjoyed most of the short stories, but things began to fall apart with the actual new novel. In particular, the title character, the Magos I found to be very annoying and out of place in the overall story. His tone was way too comedic and quippy in a way that wouldn't be out of a place in a Marvel movie. I just don't feel like it fit. Also, I had no idea what he was even doing in the novel, as he didn't seem to have any purpose to the mission the inquisitor was on as opposed to being a contrarian to Eisenhorn. Also, the central...device at the heart of the story felt like a McGuffin that was never explained despite it's importance.

My favorite release of 2018

By far, this compilation and subsequent novel kept me entertained more than any other book I've had the pleasure of listening to this year. Thank you Mr. Abnett for your books and thank you, Mr. Longworth for excellent voice work.

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.

As pet usual for this pairing, Dan Abnett's outstanding work is narrated and performed to an extremely high level by Toby Longworth. A hugely enjoyable experienced all round.

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.

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.
