Publisher Description

Siege of Terra Book 2


The Solar War is over. The Siege of Terra has begun. As the Traitors unleash their deadliest weapons, the defenders of the Throneworld face nightmare and plague – but Terra must stand. 


READ IT BECAUSE

Discover the lengths to which Horus will go to claim Terra as his own – and the horrors he is willing to set upon its defenders.


THE STORY

On the thirteenth day of Secundus, the bombardment of Terra began. With the solar defences overcome through the devastating strength of the Traitor armada and the power of the warp, Horus launches his assault on the Throneworld in earnest. After withstanding a ferocious barrage of ordnance, an immense ground war commences outside the Palace with every inch gained paid for in the lives of billions. The front lines are beyond horrific and the very air is reduced to poison and blood. Bodies are thrown into the meat grinder but the outer redoubts cannot possibly hold for long, even with the loyal primarchs to reinforce them. For Horus has his own generals to call upon. Between the plague weapons of Mortarion and the fury of Angron, the defenders face a losing battle.

The battle in the trenches

I imagine it isn’t easy writing the first months of a siege proper knowing other authors get to handle all the payoff climax moments, but I think Guy Hayley does a sterling job here. Luckily, he did choose to show some lowly human perspectives. There’s still plenty of space marines bolt blasting things to aerosol bloody wrecks, but with the terrified humans, you get to see an epic war from the grunts’ POV. And a pretty harrowing view it is. It isn’t always Guy’s finest prose hour, but I think most readers here will forgive the lack of art for the grinding tedium/bursts of horror he conjures up - more reminiscent of a world war tale than a typical space battle. Telling the months of a siege where nobody really strikes a telling blow but keeps everything moving forward is a tough gig. Book 2 is better than expected.
