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 foresees 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.

A Thousand Sons review

3 stars

A Thousand Sons is a novel about the Thousand Suns legion, and their time leading up to and during the Burning of Prospero. The novel is longer than many other Heresy no els but I’ll keep the review brief. The novel is fine, and unfortunately thats all I can really say. Magnus is a somewhat interesting character, and Ahriman is decent too, but I can’t say anything positive or negative about any of the other characters, they’re all just there and don’t feel important to the story. None of the other characters were particularly engaging and should have, in my opinion, been cut to focus on the almost titular faction. Regardless though, the novel wasn’t downright bad, just average, which is rather sad for such an interesting faction.
