    1 thought on “A Thousand Sons

    1. This was a blast of a re-read! Totally forgot the Cthulhu Mythos references to the Pnakotic Manuscripts and "Mad Alhazred", but the best one was the vision about the Dawn of War videogame series Blood Ravens!The tragic tale about Magnus the Red and his Thousand Sons fall is still my most favourite one Horus Heresy tale.The last hundred pages with the Space Wolves assault and the razing of Prospero were a real page turner.Just a shame Mcneill messed continuity later with "The Outcast Dead" but th [...]

    2. Review:Picked up the book last evening, finished reading and turned out the light at exactly 3:33am. Coincidence?My review? Go out and buy the book, absorb it in one sitting.That's it?I have to admit that is this is a difficult book to read and review as I am forced to set aside any fanboy glee for what is my personal favorite Legion (1ksons) and the Horus Heresy novel I've been waiting for since the beginning. Deep breath. I'm a pro. Objectivity. GO!WOW!A Thousand Sons is a story about one loya [...]

    3. I recently re-read this book, and damn I'd forgotten how good it was. Tragic, enthralling, and filled with cool moments of action. Wonderful read. 4 out of 5 stars.

    4. The most misunderstood of the legions, A Thousand Sons provides an excellent tale of brotherhood and betrayal who showcase truly awesome feats of power. Definitely more human-like Astartes in the Sons, much to McNeill's credit. Their pursuit of knowledge and its preservation has me conflicted in my feelings for the Space Wolves, who are among my favorites, who seek to destroy it utterly. Favorite of the Heresy series so far.

    5. This being my fstep into sci-fi I give it 4 stars for representing the genre. It was well written and kindly let me live in tthis other world for awhile.

    6. The first part of a duology, followed by Prospero Burns. The duology focusses on an event in the Horus Heresy where the Space Wolves are sent to sack the homeworld of the Thousand Sons, Prospero, to punish them for practicing the forbidden arts of sorcery.Interestingly enough, the writers switched places while doing the preparations and brainstorming. Although the rough Space Wolves chapter was more McNeill's 'thing', he took on the challenge to write the subtle Thousand Sons. While Dan Abnett w [...]

    7. What is wisdom without debate? Why condemn everyone around you in order to punish yourself? This book, which should've been named A Thousand Bad Decisions, all made with the absolute best of intentions, is Ahzek Ahriman's attempt to set the record straight about what his father did and why. In the 41st millennium, Ahriman is one of the most murderous sorcerors to ever plague the Imperium, but 10,000 years before that he was a loyal son and devoted scholar.Long before the dropsite massacre, Amlod [...]

    8. After the last few duds in the series, A Thousand Sons provides a strong comeback for the series. The richness of the Horus Heresy history flows through this book as we're treated to both the Coronation of Horus at Ullinor and the Council of Nikaea. Unlike the Dark Angels books where we're only told of their Primarch from afar, in this book we not only have Magnus, the Primarch of the Thousand Sons, but also plenty of scenes with the Emperor, Lehman Russ and also minor appearances of other Prima [...]

    9. "Gut wrenching" and "Insane" describe this book for me. It's so awesome and awful at the same time. An AMAZING book, but you'd better be really prepared. It's like "OMGSH! Why must they be so screwed in every possible way chaos can invent." And in the end you seriously wish they'd all died and be spared such a horribly extensive fate. Oh what a roller coaster! Fulgrim was still worse though(as in sadder), don't worry. WHY DO YOU HAVE TO LOVE MAGNUS AND THE THOUSAND SONS SOOOOOOO MUCH!?!?!? Magnu [...]

    10. I love how Chaos just leaves you guessing about how much they really influence these "gods" aka Primarchs. I also felt incredible sympathy for the Thousand Sons and like the return of the Rememberancers. I wished there was more about Ahriman's Rubric though it just mentions that he has this powerful spell that will help his brothers resist the flesh change. All-in-all one of my favorite Horus Heresy books!

    11. An epic telling of the backstory of the Thousand Sons, and one of the best installments of the Horus Heresy series I have read thus far (in order).

    12. A Thousand Sons.The Thousand Sons are perhaps one of the most interesting and tragic Legions to fall during the Horus Heresy. Their Legion organization and operation was amazing, having all the different cults work together was phenomenal to read. There were many really key events in this novel, and it really stretched to cover a lot of time, and I would have definitely liked to see a lot more of the in-between such astounding events.At the same time, getting to see The Triumph at Ullanor first [...]

    13. I read this immediately after reading Nick Kyme's Tome of Fire Trilogy. I was willing to read this entirely because I liked those books so much. This one was also recommended to me by the same friend who lent me the Tome of Fire Trilogy, because he knew I liked the Thousand Sons. In short, I was a little underwhelmed. This story is VERY slow, which I don't usually mind, but this is a very long book where remarkably little actually happens. And while the battles are described in excruciating deta [...]

    14. When you read a series of books that you enjoy a sense of complacency can start to set in. You can almost become accustomed to certain things and after you read an entry you’re left with a feeling of like, “Okay. That was fun. On to the next one.” Sometimes though an entry comes along in a series that is so good it’s like a refreshing blast of cold water or even slap in the face. It wakes you up and reminds you of why you fell in love with a particular series in the first place and shows [...]

    15. OK simply put I liked this book a lot it probably really only deserved 4 stars but I liked it so much it gets 5.I like Magnus, he defiantly has a problem with hubris but to me in some way he seemed so innocent, him trying to do what was best for his legion and to prove himself to his father.Another point that really stuck out to me in this book was that Magnus did things that made me feel he really viewed his legion as his sons and would do almost anything to save them. Something I had never fel [...]

    16. Absolutely top flightagic and profoundd has a little homage to H.P. Lovecraft relating to the quest for forbidden knowledge.

    17. Good read. They captured the actual fall of Prospero very satisfactorily. Taking a literary break from the Horus Heresy and then I'll tackle "Prospero Burns".

    18. This second Black Library book (both were purchased at an airport to see me through two days away) fares somewhat better than the previous in my estimation. McNeill's tale of the Thousand Sons during the Horus Heresy doesn't strike me as particularly imaginitive or insightful, but manages its job well enough.Magnus has always seemed a rather sympathetic figure to me, and unsurprisingly this book provides support for that angle. Magnus was loyal, and probably not corrupted, and generally just (ri [...]

    19. My problems with the book and story were several. First of all I could not relate to any of the characters and did not find them as interesting as I did say Little Horus with one exception for Ahriman. Second Magnus, well I kinda get his deal but again other primarchs were much more intriguing or interesting to me personally, the likes of the Khan or Perturabo put me on edge several times in their novels while Magnus here was exhaustingly vague and frustratingly arrogant (I get that is his deal [...]

    20. This was a pretty awesome addition to the series, and showed the Thousand Sons in a pretty great light. All of the characters were memorable, and while Graham McNeil is rather hit and miss for me (with some of his work being among my favorite, and some being far less noteworthy), this one was rather excellent. Ahriman was an awesome central protagonist, and his view on Magnus really made for a dynamic conflict within the legion. The human characters were also very engaging and and I wish there'd [...]

    21. A Thousand Sons, written by Graham McNeil, is the twelfth instalment in the Warhammer 40,000: Horus Heresy series. The novel's story revolves around the Egyptian-themed Chapter called “Thousand Sons”, an Imperial military contingent that draws its power from the Warp and their usage of eldritch, deadly sorceries. Led by their Primarch, Magnus the Red, a sorcerer supreme in the Empire of Mankind, these Adeptus Astartes are masters of forbidden lore, knowledge and communication inside the Warp [...]

    22. The tragedy of the Thousand Sons is one of the more compelling subplots of the overall Horus Heresy narrative, and McNeill handles it with aplomb.This book suffers a little bit in that the beginnings are bogged down with exposition and the plot itself doesn't really get going until the Council of Nikea over halfway through.The futility of good intentions by Magnus the Red make for fine narrative heft and it's told well. This is a very good book, however the usual "for gaming fiction" caveat does [...]

    23. The thousand sons is possibly my favorite Astartes legion in the 40k universe and seeing there origin of becoming what they are now is the biggest satisfaction for me as a fan. The book itself is a solid stand alone to other Horus Heresy books in my opinion even with few insights to the whole heresy story arc it didn't get you lose in the story, and that's the biggest applause in this book. It's not just action pack, it's also full of memorable characters and drama that makes you're typical YA b [...]

    24. this book gave me more than I expected. it was a case of misunderstanding and then clarity when it's too late to change the outcome. the last half of the book gives you the sense of impeding doom for the Thousand Sons. it was like watching a person getting shot and all you can do is stand there and watch. I don't really know why but I really liked the story and connected with it more than a lot of books that I have read recently.

    25. I have read the first four Horus Heresy novels. This is my fifth. It felt quite different than the others. It was a longer read than the others. Story was slow and took time to pickup. The female characters were strong and it gave the book a lighter feel. Don't let that fool you. Some of the scenes made me squirm. I will read the followup to this - Prospero Burns.

    26. Brilliant, in depth look at the tragedy of Magnus' fall and the legions curse, motives and views during the crusade/heresy.Council of Nikea was covered really well and Ahriman was fleshed out brilliantly. Cool to see a primarch realize he was being manipulated all along by the powers of chaos
