    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.

    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 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.

    Not as good as the previous 3 books

    The character after which this book is named honestly made this book kind of unenjoyable. It’s very odd how in one moment he acts like a complete coward and then very quickly becomes this brave and competent character. There’s not really any progression to it, it’s more like the flipping of a switch. I actually don’t mind him in the 2 short stories he appears in but there’s some odd tonal shift that happens with him in the main novel itself which just kind of takes you out of moment. Also there’s a few scenes where characters talk about the extreme urgency of the situation and the need to move but then will stand around talking to each other for extended periods of time. Lots of little things like that in this book which just made me roll my eyes. I also feel like they tried really hard to come up with a reason for why Eisenhorn and his team so desperately needed the magos’ help but again it just seemed a little far fetched. I just got the impression the author loved this character for some reason and was trying to shoehorn him into the main plot.

    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!

    Amazing

    This book is the sole reason I play Inqusition on the table top. Eisenhorn and his band are some of the best developed characters in the Black Library reporter.

    Started odd, developed well

    I had trouble getting into this at first. It seemed like a random bunch of barely related stories, barely even about our expected main character. But if keep going it is worth it.

    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.

    The worst Eisenhorn, but still one of the best WH

    This book man... By the time the short stories ended - sometimes thinking 'what tf has this to do with Eisenhorn?', sometimes thinking 'how is this not a longer book?' - I didn't even recognize that the main story had finally started. While I appreciate the nods to the short stories and their characters, a few of the connections drawn were superficial at best and unnecessary at worst. The protagonist for the main story was in my opinion way too weak to carry the story forward and I had no sympathies for him left. I wanted Eisenhorn or any other of his consorts but not the one Dan ultimately chose. He was unlikable, and while acting as a moral counterpart to Eisenhorn, the story didn't result in a real change to Eisenhorn. Instead the protagonist got one, the one I thought I would not mind dying. Same for his love interest to be frank. The fun thing about this book is, that the parts where the author chose another point of view- namely any other than the protagonist's - it was so good. It left me wanting more. Just not like this. If the Black Library ever chooses to publish another one of these I think I'd rather skip it.

    Marvelous

    Now that collection of story's, explaining the background and the sidecharacters of Gregors adventures is amazing. The reader, the stories, mind blowing! I couldn't stop listening! Even if you do not know Gregor Eisenhorns books, that one is fascinating! Standing ovations!!! For reader and writer!

    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
