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.

None came. Now, with their fleet stranded and supplies dwindling, the warriors of the Rout face almost certain death amidst the rust-red clouds of the nebula. But what a glorious end it shall be, worthy of the sagas of old, and Alpharius’s sons will soon learn that a cornered wolf is always the most deadly.

Sons of Wrath laissera un gout d'inachevé, comme si l'auteur n'avait développé que le Chapitre des Flesh Tearers au détriment du reste. Une note assez dure il est vrai, au regard de la qualité d'écriture d'Andy et de l'ambiance criante de vérité qui nous est offerte.
For millennia, the writings of Chaplain Daenyathos have been the guiding force behind the Soul Drinkers, his wisdom taking them from strength to strength. But a dark secret lurks at the heart of Daenaythos’s Catechisms Martial, a cancer that will eat away at the Soul Drinkers and ultimately damn them.
