A Great War is coming, and it will engulf the Imperium of Man. The Space Marines of the Alpha Legion, the last and most secretive of all the Astartes brotherhoods, arrive on a heathen world to support the Imperial Army in a pacification campaign against strange and uncanny forces. But what drives the Alpha Legion? Can they be trusted, and what side will they choose when the Great War begins? Loyalties are put to the test, and the cunning schemes of an alien intelligence revealed, as the fate of mankind hangs in the balance.
An absolutely stellar novel
Dan Abnett really hit it out of the park with this one. It's clear he did his research on covert operations, subterfuge, guerrilla warfare and so on before writing this book. It will keep you on the edge of your seat, thinking you've worked out what's going on behind the scenes before being blindsided yet again by another shocking revelation. 5/5, would recommend even to people unfamiliar with WH40k
Another great story from Dan abbnet. A must ready for 40k fans
