5.0 out of 5 stars Removes a weak spot in the heresy..., 20 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Thousand Sons (The Horus Heresy) (Paperback)
For me the story of Magnus the Red and the Thousand Sons was one of the weakest links in the whole Heresy story. The previous lore just didn't really make that much sense and left more questions than answers. But Graham has now resolved all of these issues in this outstanding book.

All of the characters really connect and you're left sympathising with Magnus for his folly whilst at the same time now understanding the actions of the Emperor and why he turns against Magnus in such dramatic fashion. He also really manages to capture the horror of the various participants as their knowledge of what Chaos and the warp actually is grows through the book until the stunning conclusion. The last few hundred pages sees so much detail being put on previously sketchy but critical events in the Heresy that I was left desperate to turn pages and see what was next!

I really hope that Dan provides further insights into the Emperors activities on Terra in his follow up Prospero Burns.

One of the best books in the series so far (and that's one hell of an achievement!)
