Review of Prodigal

Prodigal is a short story by Josh Reynolds about Fabius Bile release as part of Advent 2016.

"When Fabius Bile is attacked by daemons aboard his frigate Versalius, he is surprised to be rescued by an old friend, one of his very first experiments. But does the prodigal’s return bode well or ill?"

Prodigal is a quick read tie in with Fabius Bile: Primogenitor.  The short story is similar to that novel insofar as it reveals a surprising human aspect to a man that is renown as one of the most feared monsters in the Warhammer universe.

The short story is an interesting read, and provides greater insight into Fabius' motivations, his relationship with Fulgrim, and his future legacy.  Being a short story there are not necessary any references to the Horus Heresy in the reading, but there is nevertheless some interesting Emperor's Children information to be gleaned.  Overall it is a tale worth hearing.  When Fabius Bile is involved, the rules that normally bind other space marines do not apply.

Overall I give it a *** out of five.
