SCIENCE FICTION REVIEW: Audio Book Unabridged: Horus Heresy: A Thousand Sons - Graham McNeill

Release Date: 27/03/12


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.


Alongside Dan Abnett, Graham McNeill is perhaps one of the other heavy hitters for the Black Library’s 40K line. The writing is not only crisp but the action is heavy with blood, guts and gore that will keep the reader hooked within especially as its Marine Vs. Marine in this none stop action thriller set during the Horus Heresy.

It’s dark, the audio medium works well and when you add that you’re getting the full force of the authors writing talent as none of the text is slashed then you know that you’re in for something special. Great stuff all in and a real treat for all.
