I personally didnt like Prospero Burns. There is one scene in particular I am thinking of, very repetitive, I nearly found myself skipping it out. The main thing I didn't enjoy is, for me at least, it did little to counteract the view of the space wolves as presented in ATS. And as you can imagine in ATS there are a number of scenes that really make the Sons look kick-ass at the expense of the Wolves. I would have liked to have seen more of the battle at the end of the book to really show off why the wolves were sent after Magnus. I feel Russ himself was fairly well done but the Wolves came across as inferior for me. My finding from the duology was that the battle for Prospero was for the Thousand Sons to lose rather than the Space Wolves to win

I am reading ATS at the moment and so far it's my favourite 40k novel.

Now i know to have no expectations for Prospero Burns though...

Prospero burns isn't bad. It is a very interesting read if you skip the first 50 pages and skip a recurring scene. ATS is by far my fav as well. I am a big
Thousand Sons supporter and I felt the book really did them justice.
