Warhammer 40k


Brief Review of "A Thousand Sons" by Graham McNeill

So I've just finished reading "A Thousand Sons", from the Horus Heresy Series as many of you will know, and I absolutely loved it. I've always found the Thousand Sons legion interesting in its traitor and loyal forms, but this book really opened up on the roots of the legion and illustrated their fall to heresy perfectly. I felt the book did a good job of picking up what worked in the original three HH books which followed the loyal days of the Luna Wolves/Sons of Horus, using a mix of strong character building, often out of combat, with small but rich pieces of combat that made the journey feel more cohesive. It also stands as one of the most indepth looks at psyker astartes/librarians I've ever read, managing to show their world without making the story purely about the insanity most human psykers face. I hear there's a future HH book about Magnus being put out by the end of the year or something, not very clear on that though!

The point is this book was one of the most enjoyable BL experiences I've had in over a year and it brings you one of the great tragedies of the Heresy. If you enjoy good Black Library works, I strongly suggest buying the paperback and digging in.

Comment if you agree so we can love the Sons together! Or comment if you hate the book so we can fight.
