Description

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.

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.

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!

A True Warhammer Novelle Series

These stories are something to experience and wallow in over and over. The descriptive nature let's you imagine a world that is for not this renegades actions saving the galaxy from internal and eventual doom by the worst and best intention evil. A great story to say in the least.

Amazing book, I only wish there was a sequel to this. Once I got into the book that was it, it was too good to put down for too long.

Fantastic.

The only issue I had with the original Eisenhorn trilogy was that it ended, this solves that and more. If you really want to get the most out of this book though you'll want to have listened to both the Eisenhorn and Ravenor trilogies. Toby Longworth is a masterful narrator, knowing exactly when and where to really go over the top without ever seeming too much, His Cherubael is probably the best non human voice I've ever listened to.

I really can't recommend these books enough, Dan Abnett and Toby Longworth are Warhammers Jordan and Pippen,

Phenomenal work

This masterpiece involves a dozen or so shorter, but still excellent, stories about Eisenhorn and his companions over the span of his career. Along with a certain magos. While it may seem like a series of unrelated tales at first they weave together an essential tapestry that all comes together in the much larger story of magos. All of it crescendoing in a tale of an inquisitor's need to bring holy retribution down upon the ruinous powers and those who bow to them. Toby Longworth is an excellent narrator who brings the characters to life and gives you that level of immersion that makes the ride all the more exciting. Cannot recommend this enough.

Hot damn!

Bester Eisenhorn bisher!

Grandioses Fundament in den Shorts
Herrlicher Mix von Stilelementen, Epochen, Humor, Grusel, Lovecraftian Horror, Weird Fiction, Krimi, Noir, Military..

Ich habe sehr wenig Hemmungen, dieses Buch/diese Sammlung als Abnetts bestes Werk zu bezeichnen (von allem, was ich bisher kenne).

Normalerweise schreibe ich gar keine Rezensionen. Aber verdammte Hacke.. What a ride!

Most perturbatory

This (audio-)book has only one flaw, it's supposed to be the final Gregor Eisenhorn novel, but it's not. Everyone who knows the ending understands that Hereticus really was the final chapter in Eisenhorn's story. Magos Biologis Valantin Drusher is the protagonist of the main story , which entails a support character whose name happens to be Gregor Eisenhorn, but hadn't I been told that this inquisitor is Eisenhorn I surely wouldn't have recognized him. As a matter of fact I probably wouldn't have recognized anyone who belongs to his entourage and bears a name that is familiar to me because I know the actual Eisenhorn novels. But it's not all that bad. Due to two short stories, featuring Drusher and his "partner" Germaine Macks, you already know some of their backstory when the actual novel begins. And their story actually is pretty good. The only inhibition it suffers stems from that one flaw the book has, as the plot tries hard to string a number of otherwise disconnected short stories into a tale that aims to provide some philosophically deep and profound insights into Eisenhorn's persona. It might not come as a surprise that specifically these excursions into Eisenhorn's psyche felt like what I can only describe as a convoluted tedium. In summary, it's a cool novella about an unequal duo of a tech-priest and an Arbiter, and a not so good Eisenhorn story nobody really needed.

Another fantastic entry in the Eisenhorn series

Possibly even my favorite of the four Eisenhorn novels written so far. Even more enjoyable thanks to the fantastic performace of Toby Longworth, whose voicework is absolutely flawless and mesmerizing. Recommended to any Warhammer or dark scifi enthusiast in general.

Good one

I really liked the book although it sometimes was a bit confusing because of the different storylines and timelines. The speaker though was good and I like the 40k Universe
