The Beast Arises is a Black Library event series, twelve books over twelve months detailing the greatest war since the Horus Heresy. Every book is packed with outrageous action and unexpected revelations as the Imperium is rocked by an ork invasion that tears the galaxy apart.
Despite the Imperium’s best attempts to forestall the ork plague that is wreaking havoc in human space, an ork attack moon now hangs over Terra. As its malevolent presence gazes down at the Imperial Palace, terrified citizens run riot in the streets. In a last-ditch attempt to destroy the attack moon, a proletarian crusade is launched. Thousands of ships large and small head to the moon carrying billions of citizens, all eager to take the fight to the enemy. It seems the attack has a chance of success as the invasion force lands safely, but the orks have yet to spring their trap...
