Discover tensions between Imperial servants on Varangantua as an extremely odd pair of detectives seek to solve a murder
Born into riches, Probator Symeon Noctis attempts to atone for his past sins by championing the powerless of Nearsteel district. But the sprawling city of Varangantua is uncaring of its masses, and when a bisected corpse is discovered in the neutral zone between Nearsteel and the Adeptus Mechanicus enclave of Steelmound, Noctis finds himself cast into his most dangerous case yet.
Partnering with the tech-priest Rho-1 Lux of the Collegiate Extremis, Noctis is drawn into a murky world of tech-heresy, illegal servitors, and exploitation that could end his career, or his life.
Written by Guy Haley
Gregor Eisenhorn meets Magnum P.I. (and maybe a little David & Maddie eventually)
Simply amazing. An impressive amount of world building, but enough of the established setting to make the 40K fan buy-in worthwhile.
This is obviously the first in a series of many, and I can’t wait for the next Noctis & Lux installment.
