Publisher's Summary

Book 4 in the Eisenhorn series

Inquisitor Eisenhorn makes his triumphant return in a brand new novel, collected together with every one of the short stories starring the tortured servant of the Throne.

Listen to It Because:

It's a brand new Eisenhorn novel by Dan Abnett! What other reason do you need!

The Story:

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 anti-hero 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 in print 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.

they all conect!

The short stories seem really disjointed at first, particularly the first one. I cept thinking back to it wondering why it was in this colection, but they are all bilding up to the final story, and it is great!

I am a huge fan of this auther, and the preformer adds some sweet voices to it as well.

pretty rad

in the grim darkness of the far future, there are still some down to earth people with down to earth concerns. the short stories comprising the first half of the story offer glimpses of imperial life from different perspectives while the main story ties them all together.

Excellent works from Dan Abnett

I have always enjoyed all the Eisenhorn books, but this one really is a great piece of work and the value is out of this world. There is a good 10 hours of other stories relating to Eisenhorn and his cases before the feature title 'The Magos' even begins. And rest assured, all these little stories are very good and many tie right in to main story itself. The narrator is also superb. Very pleased with this purchase. Dan Abnett has done it again!

Brilliant Addition to Eisenhorn and Ravenor Series

Fantastic book. Dan Abnet manages to deliver many short stories with a single longer narrative, more importantly the finally ties all the short stories together to make them meaningful and relevant. Toby Longworth is a master of his craft and makes it really difficult to listen to anyone else by raising the bar. I will recommend that this is a solid follow up after you've finished the Eisenhorn trilogy.(which are all phenomenal, same writer, same narrarator) because a lot of what's included here will carry more weight and sense, both with characters and timeline.

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.

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.

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.

Deepest of the Eisenhorn books

Having read all of the Eisenhorn and Ravenor books and short stories and enjoyed all of them to varying degrees, I can safely say that this one was my favorite. It has the action, the intrigue, the excitement of the other novels, but it's also much deeper and more human. I love books that make me think, that expand my perspective on life in some way. The earlier books were certainly exciting and well written, but I think this is the first one that caused that delicious perspective shift for me. Bravo, Dan Abnett!

Another great Eisenhorn adventure!

If you wanted more Eisenhorn you'll get it, but not fully. He takes almost a side character role for most of the Magos, but it's still a great tale. Toby Longworth took a little for me to get used to, especially his female performances, but by the end I was a fan!

Best in the series

At first it is difficult to tell where this book is going, but once it gets there it really comes together and does a great job of adding more to the internal life of Eisenhorn. I found the overall direction they took him was unexpected for me but very satisfying.

Just fantastic.

First of all, Toby Longworth has yet again done an exceptional job with Abnett’s cast of characters. Magos itself was great - a series of short stories that then are marvelously interwoven in the main book. Eisenhorn gains depth, and exquisite new characters introduced. Love it.

Must-have for Eisenhorn fans.

If you've heard/read the Eisenhorn trilogy you need to pick this up. The short stories alone would be worth the price, but The Magos is a great finale to Eisenhorn, is is sort of a book 4 to the trilogy.

Slowly building up to a good story

The first part of the book contains many little independent stories at first which build up characters, their background and experience. They all finally meet up in the second part of the book into another one of Eisenhorn's crazy adventures.
A nice touch in the continued series of Dan Abnett.
Love it.
