Publisher's Summary

A Siege of Terra novella

In the midst of the Siege of Terra, Magnus the Red embarks on a very personal mission – one that will bring him face to face with the Emperor once more!

Listen to it because:

Discover the end of Magnus' journey from Prospero to treachery on Terra in a deeply moving and elegiac tale that sees him finally choose his side and take his place amongst his brothers.

The story:

Of all the Emperor’s sons who fell to Chaos, it is perhaps Magnus the Red whose tale is the most tragic. Sanctioned because of his desire for knowledge, chastised, judged, and shattered to his very elements – there is much for the Crimson King to feel vengeful for. Yet revenge is not the only thing that draws him to Terra alongside the Warmaster’s besieging armies. He seeks something, a fragment, the missing piece of himself that lies within the most impregnable place on the planet – the inner sanctum of the Imperial Palace. As the greatest conflict of the ages reaches fever pitch, Magnus fights his own inner battle. To be whole once more, he must not only overcome the fiercest of defences, but also face the one being whom he loves and hates with equal fervour more than any other – his errant father, the Emperor of Mankind.

Very good!

Exceptional narration, as always from JK. Story was very good but felt like it was rushed. Could have been 3-4 more hours. Regardless, an exciting part of the overall mythology that filled in the blanks nicely. Worth buying for sure.

An emotional and wonderful story!

Absolutely love this tale! Graham McNeil wrote a masterful piece of storytelling about Magnus and others that makes you just want to hear more and more. And once again Jonathan Keeble performs his characters and lines with such talent!

Great Book!

I am relieved!
Several Black Library offerings recently have been less than stellar. This work from Graham McNeill breaks that streak.

Keeble's narration is nearly flawless.

McNeill is reliably canon, detail oriented, and every one of his stories builds in intensity and tempo until the end.

For the experienced GW reader, you get a lot of solid lore and detail. For the newer reader, McNeill provides a look into the mind and heart of all the players.

It is easy to forget the quality of an author when you read a lot of books and haven't read one of their offerings in a while. I was just reminded of why I love the work of Graham McNeill!

I've been waiting for this

I've always liked the 15th legion. This story was vindicating and shows that Magnus was practically forced to betray the Emperor.

Weak

Insultingly bad. Not just to me, but to Magnus. He is one of the most interesting characters in the 40k universe and for his role in the Horus Heresy to be concluded in such an insubstantial and flimsy way is just.... disappointing.

An End and A Beginning

I love the Thousand Sons and have ravenously devoured all books related to them. Fury of Magnus weaves the many threads and characters from the Horus Heresy series that relate to the 15th Legion together and makes deft acknowledgement of the books and details from the 40K period books as well. Critically, it finds a satisfying way to present the long missing piece of how the Thousand Sons truly fell to Chaos. How the melancholic did Magnus and the Legion evolve into the evil warlocks of the 41st Millennium? Great wrongs done to them and impossible choices given lead them to the dark roads of the future in a fully satisfying way. Highly recommend you read Magnus the Red, Legion, False Gods, A Galaxy in Flames, Thousand Sons, Scars, A Path to Heaven, Vengeful Spirit, Crimson King, Master of Mankind, Slaves to Darkness, Solar War, Lost and the Damned, Saturnine, and then Fury of Magnus so that you can trace the narrative and characters more fully.

Magnus is still a idiot

Magnus had the chance for everything he wanted and he gave it away for the handful legionaries had have left. Bold move Cotten. Let’s see how this plays out for the next 10 millennium.

Magnificent!

Another beautiful, poignant chapter in this rich universe. I was captivated from the first sentence and not released until the very end. The writing and narration are top notch, as always. Highly recommended to anyone who's made it through the rest of the Siege of Terra series.

so much build up, but no payoff

One really can skip this book. It does a great job painting the devastation of this war. The ending really didn't sit well with me. It was predictable, wanting more, and just short.

story: The big E being so old and wise really needs to take a basic sales class. I mean come on. sure let's help find a way to help Magnus sons. Y not? Just keep an eye on them and not have them as enemies. so much build up and sacrifice to not find a basic solution. ugggghhh, Just disappointing

Best Book in the Seige of Terra

This is surprisingly better than Saturnine in terms of both plot and narration. Nuff said

Emotionally evoking

Although I feel as if these audio books would benefit greatly from more than one reader, Mr Keeble’s delivery was still great. Hearing the inner struggles of a Demi God among men as he bounces between honored Primarch of his legion and devoted son of the Emperor shows how human Magnus really is.
Although the relatable or sympathetic antagonist has become a very common trope among stories of all genres over the past decade, Magnus truly is a favorable character for the simple fact that he chooses to do what he feels is right, even when given a chance at redemption with his father. Like the Emperor, he fights to save his sons. Looking to protect them from both the imperium and the flesh changing curse of Tzeench he knows that abandoning his legion would be something he could never forgive himself for, even if the rest of humanity would.
Stories like this are why I love the black library and look forward to reading/listening to more like it.

I didn't see that one coming.

If your a fan of the seige of terra series this book is a must. so many epic characters interacting and none of them are the same afterwards. the Emperor, Magnus, Malcadore, even Loren and Garro. This one is worth your time.
