Publisher's Summary

The Emperor is enraged. Primarch Magnus the Red of the Thousand Sons Legion has made a terrible mistake that endangers the very safety of Terra. With no other choice, the Emperor charges Leman Russ, Primarch of the Space Wolves, with the apprehension of his brother from the Thousand Sons home world of Prospero.

This planet of sorcerers will not be easy to overcome, but Russ and his Space Wolves are not easily deterred. With wrath in his heart, Russ is determined to bring Magnus to justice and bring about the fall of Prospero.

This Was Heartbreaking/Psychologically Intense.

Imagine finding out you were living out the plot of a malicious entity as a pawn used for deception, having spent your whole life believing you had agency over your own actions. Imagine the heartbreak of lost love and grand opportunities, in a life you've lived which was not your own. Imagine living to old age and being totally remade, but still holding all your memories. And imagine if you knew all these things, and the only ones willing to befriend and aid you were a bunch of hulking superstitious, superhuman space vikings, who act like a pack of wolves. Imagine going to war, as one of them. Imagine this book.

The entire productionwas great. I wish the music were more Gregorian or Vikingesque.

The wolves of Fenris

wow loves this story, right when I thought I would hate the wolves after The Thousand Sons. nice rounds the story of the two chapters' encounters. makes you feel for both sides of the battle. when the bad guys are good guys and the good, bad.

My favorite in the series thus far; bravo!

"Prospero Burns" is a bit of a slow burn, but the payoff is worth it; both in the epic action that fans of 40K crave, as well as in the further enrichment of the lore that makes it such a compelling universe. The Space Wolves have always been, in my opinion, one of the most interesting Astartes legions, and getting to better know them from the point of view of a mortal man certainly deepened my appreciation for them. A well written and thoroughly enjoyable read; I highly recommend it to any fan of Warhammer 40K.

Not as good as some of the other WH40k books

I really enjoy the WH40k books but this one is a bit hit and miss. The performance is good but the story is slow to start and does not contain as much action as the others and the linkage to the wider heresy is only brought in right at the end.

Slow to get going but worth it.

A bit confusing and random early on but it comes together and tells a good story about the Space Wolves. The narrator really brings it all to life and I was sorry to finally reach the end.

good read

a good WH40K story, with a particularly good ending. a worthy read for fans of the 40,000 universe.
