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.

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.

Great book

This is a very clever book which ties things up and create more stories. Love the voice acting and the plot is great! Well worth the 20 hrs listening. I did not want it to end.

Excellent purchase!

Though this is a collection of stories, they do intermingle in some sense, it’s been fantastic to have a taste of the 40k universe that’s not around the usual types of characters. Then to have the story all come together at the end and to be so amazingly written? This was a real treat, I couldn’t recommend this collection more! Utterly loved it.

Abnett's absolute finest

This could be Abnett's best work yet. A beautifully woven set of stories that all tie together in a ripping novella.

Excellent listen! keep them coming Mr Abnett.

The original Eisenhorn trilogy remains one of my most loved book series. It is set in a rich and intricately detailed universe full of unique characters and the gritty realism you would expect from a series set in a distant dystopian future. This book is an excellent addition to that series and well worth a listen.

wonderful addition to the Eisenhorn saga

if you enjoyed the Eisenhorn trilogy, but were unsure what to go to next: this is it.

Toby Longworth returns to narrate the stories amazingly (though he has adjusted certain characters voices/accents), and gives a stellar performance throughout.
The book starts with a compilation of short stories that seem disconnected at first, but then goes on to the meat of the book, which is a new story (which the book is titled after, 'The Magos'), and then all of the short stories make much more sense as they all eventually play a part in this tale

I loved this audiobook immensely, and eagerly look forward to Eisenhorn's next adventure!

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.

Fantastic

I had no idea that Eisenhorn and his crew would be involved in this one. I was pleasantly surprised.

I think this is as good, if not better than any of the novels in the original Eisenhorn trilogy. For once, Abnett wrote a story where the ending doesn't feel rushed. The new characters are also very likeable and I hope to see them make a return in any future Inquisitor novels.

A fantastic read!

I fully recommend reading through the book again after you've finished. the second read through offers greater insights and a heartfelt bond with the characters.

Short Stories to Grande Story

When I first purchased this I did it under the pretense that it was a collection of short stories and initially that's what it was and satisfied me. However at the end there is a long grande story that relates to the prior short stories and makes it all amazing and worth while I highly recommend this book to anyone.

THE EMPEROR PROTECTS!!

very very well written and narrated. I wasn't able to put it down until it was finished. if you're a fan of the 40k universe you have to pick this up, but read the other 3 books first or you might not understand what's going on in full. really wish this book never ended lol.

My free download

This was my free download, nice choice as it is a free 20 hour book! Nice selection of short 40K stories.

Don’t know if I will get a membership, as it looks like most 40K books are in ITunes. This would be a $25.00 book.
