Publisher's Summary

Lord of the mystical and uncanny, Magnus the Red has long studied the ancient crafts of sorcery. A psyker without peer, save only for the Emperor himself, he commands his loyal followers of the Thousand Sons Legion in the Great Crusade, though also vigilant for any lost knowledge they might recover from the remains of dead human civilisations.

Now, fighting alongside his brother Perturabo of the Iron Warriors, Magnus begins to foresee an approaching nexus of fate - will he remain true to their mutual aims or divert his own efforts towards furthering his own mastery of the warp?

A Chapter In The Greatest Story Ever Told:

This story illustrates The Crimson King before and after the fall of Prospero. It shows Magnus at his best and at his worst, his most powerful and most vulnerable. To any who wish to learn the tale of the Thousand Sons in full, this book will be a great pleasure.

Excessive Excess

There's a decent amount of good stuff here, I enjoyed it for sure. But there were so many moments of such extreme that it could fill several books with an appropriate volume of tension. Between the hand-waving magic stuff and constant escalation of crisis, its teeth were made dull by the end.

Through the eyes of a Tragic Hero/Villian

Great read! One of my faves of the Horus Heresy
Primarch novels! Jonathan Keeble delivers another great performance narrative of this novel. Magnus the Red the tragic hero or villian? You can decide after you see it through his eyes.

Magnus the Red Audiobook

As with prior audiobooks in this series as well as Horus heresy series the voice acting really brings the universe to life. This is a really interesting travel into Magnus the Reds character. Highly recommend listen.

Brothers

It's gratifying to see these two act like brothers. I look forward to seeing how Magnus went chaotic...

Crimson King

It’s a good book overall. But I feel it could do more to elaborate on the details inside the story.

An Interesting Albeit Brief Look into Magnus

Very well put together, and beautiful naration as always from Keeble. This books focuses slightly more on the thousand sons than Magnus, giving brief insights into relationships between them and other Astartes as well as their psychic powers.

Not what you expect.

I was hoping for a little more information about Magnus apart from his abilities on Morningstar, and against Shi'tan (hope that's how you spell it). But I did thoroughly enjoy the story, and now I think the offshoot book about Aharmani. The narrator Keeble first class as always, I do think he puts all his talents into every character, how he remembers which voice goes to which of the characters is brilliant. But Not enough information about Magnus The Red. Book should have been called 'The Desolation of Morningstar' and maybe only 3🌟 for that reason.

Not quite what I expected.

Whilst certainly an enjoyable look at the events surrounding Morningstar, I was hoping for more of a life and times of Magnus and his thought processes and actions leading to and during his fall from grace.

This was my first “Primarchs” novel and therefore I perhaps misunderstood what the stories individual Primarch books would tell.

Still an enjoyable listen but not what I expected.

Jonathan Keeble’s delivery is top notch as I’ve come to expect.
