Censured at the Council of Nikea for his flagrant use of sorcery, Magnus the Red and his Thousand Sons Legion retreat to their homeworld of Prospero to continue their use of the arcane arts in secret. But when the ill-fated primarch forsees the treachery of Warmaster Horus and warns the Emperor with the very powers he was forbidden to use, the Master of Mankind dispatches fellow primarch Leman Russ to attack Prospero itself. But Magnus has seen more than the betrayal of Horus and the witnessed revelations will change the fate of his fallen Legion, and its primarch, forever.
This book was found very interesting and helped me pick my team. The book is long and enjoyable which is how I like them. Plus, it gives me something to do in my spare time.
Best so far
If you're after the extended battle reports of some of the other Heresy novels (looking at you Dark Angels borefests...) this isn't for you. A much longer story than the others and more concerned with corruption and hubris - that makes much better reading than another 400 pages of body counts. When you find yourself cheering for the 'traitors' against all odds - that's probably a sign of a good writer.
