Publisher's Summary

After the razing of Prospero, Magnus the Red spirited the Thousand Sons away to the aptly unnamed Planet of the Sorcerers, deep within the Eye of Terror.

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.

Only by returning to the scenes of his greatest triumphs and tragedies can they hope to restore him and allow the Crimson King to be crowned anew by the Ruinous Powers

    "Good book but the wolves are hard to like"

    Always good to see more Thousand sons and Magnus, the story arc of both Arhiman and Amon was also interesting to follow. The wolves however were a bit one dimensional and were hard to like or enjoy. I think the book would have been better off without them

    "Another classic from the Horus Heresy series."

    Really enjoyed this, great story and great insight into the Heresy Ahriman and Magnus. There were times it felt like it was a bit meandering, but everything snaps back to an explosive climax.

    "Wonderful"

    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.
