Magnus wasn't punished for actually playing around with minor spells, whatever bans Nikaea stipulated. He was punished for practicing sorcery on such a scale that it not only lasted two years, managing to overcome the most formidable array of psychic defenses in the Imperium (defenses which, I would assume were being constantly bolstered throughout those two years), but also caused considerable morale damage among the population, when it eventually broke out (IN the middle of a Galaxy-spanning civil war).
I couldn't agree more.

Angel of Blood Listen on straight after, nothing else is spoiled by it.

Apfeljunge My memory is bit fuzzy on this one, so take it with a grain of salt but I think you should be safe. Wolf Hunt only deals with the aftermath of TOD, I think.

HamsterExAstris I'm about to reach The Outcast Dead in my HH read-through. (Well, mostly listen-through from this point forward.) Will I be "safe" to listen to Wolf Hunt right after, or is there some intermediate material that I should read first?

Phoebus If that's the explanation behind the timeline screw up in 'The Outcast Dead', then I wish Graham would have just said either, ...

1. "Sorry, I totally screwed up on my research," or...
2. "Sorry, I should have just said as much in my novel, rather than leaving people waiting for an anti-climactic explanation for something that would have appeared to be a blatant error to anyone who has read this series."
