In fairness to Mcneill, I doubt a single novella as wrap-up was what he planned back when he wrote Seventh Serpent. He chose to focus on resolution for his crew, and while abandoned plothreads and rushed explanations rankle, I think his priority was in the right place. Fury of Magnus may also elaborate a bit on Magnus' interest, who knows?

My biggest annoyance with the ending:




It's just a wet rectal venting, in my eyes. There were plenty of missions for the Sysypheum crew to do in the Sol System - heck, they could've gone and did a thing or two for Mars, since that planet was basically forgotten, and the Iron Hands are supposedly pretty close to the whole machine thingything, but... nah.


At this point, I'm starting to think that McNeill only ever resorts to the same handful of characters because he can't keep track of more than those, if even that. He routinely forgets aspects of his own stories and character development, doesn't cross-check other overlapping works, doesn't invent compelling new stuff anymore, often retcons things or plays loose with the fluff... Honestly, a lot of it speaks of a lack of diligence and planning on his end.

Maybe if the Alpha Legion ever gets proper 40k lore, we'll see them put it to better use?

"The Alpha Legion has- in spirit if not in body- remained much the same since its creation."
