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?

Pick up this audiobook

Incredible story and voice acting. Pick it up if you love the 40k universe. Completely worth it.

Crimson King

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

very disappointing.

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.
