Across the galaxy, an ancient evil rises to reclaim the remnants of its shattered empire. The dread necrons are a race of un-living metallic warriors. Long ago, they traded their fragile mortal bodies for the promise of immortality, only to find that had sacrificed their souls for an eternity of damnation.

This collection of seven stories gives an overview into one of the deadliest emerging threats to the Imperium, and captures the true horror of this ancient alien menace. The necrons embody the very essence of the Warhammer 40,000 universe: a faded shadow of a once great and powerful empire, and an ancient evil that will surely play its part in mankind's extinction.
