He is known by many names - Clonelord, Manflayer, Primogenitor. He is the epitome of deceit and perversion, and feared by man and monster alike. Once the Chief Apothecary of the Emperor's Children, the madman known as Fabius Bile possesses a knowledge of genetic manipulation second to none.

One of the best 40k novels, and I have read/heard plenty. a truly complex character is our fabius, gifted, twisted, cruel, idealistic. Many of the other characters were absolute peaches also (greetings from slaanesh radiant king). The voice performance was fantastic, the character sounded just as I would have imagined them. fabius bile... mad bad and dangerous to know.

On the warship Messenger of Hermes, Ahzek Ahriman and his servant, Ignis, study a most unusual prisoner - a metal construct containing the consciousness of a member of a long-extinct race - the necrontyr.

As they interrogate the necron Setekh, he is also learning about them - over and over again as he uses ancient technology to relive the moment and plot his escape. Will he succeed, or will Ahriman prevail?

Removed from the concerns of the galaxy at large and regarding the Warmaster's unfolding Heresy with cold detachment, he has dedicated his hollow existence to the preservation of all the knowledge once held in the great libraries of Tizca, should mankind ever seek such enlightenment again. But his sons can see the change in their primarch - he is a broken soul whose mind and memories are slipping away into the tumult of the warp.

The story of Magnus and the thousand sons is a favourite of mine in the WH40K universe and Graham McNeill's superlative imagination and writing brings it entirely to glorious life. the voice performance was superb also, I admire these performers greatly.

this series is great. it has a wide ranging scope and cast of characters which I found daunting at first but it's coming together nicely.
