Publisher Description

What can be said about Horus Rising that hasn’t been said before? The Horus Heresy was a brand new venture, and had it not been for Dan’s masterful portrayal of the Warmaster as a force for good, the series might not have taken off in the way did.


The Story
At the dawn of the 31st millennium, the Imperium of Man has reasserted its dominance over the galaxy. It is a golden age of rediscovery and conquest, and the Emperor’s Great Crusade has placed his superhuman primarch sons at the head of the mighty Space Marine Legions – the most powerful military force ever assembled. Newly promoted to serve as the Emperor’s Warmaster, the idealistic Horus now stands above his brothers, even as the Crusade enters what must surely be its final stages and dark, cosmic truths begin to reveal themselves. Far beyond the alien threat of malignant xenos breeds or rogue human civilisations, a war now looms that could threaten the final extinction of mankind... The first novel in the epic series, detailing the fall of mankind at the peak of the Great Crusade. Warmaster Horus leads his Legion in the name of the Emperor... but for how long?

40k Perfect

This is, by far, one of the best sci-fi novels I have read to date. As a fan of the 40k universe, TT and rts, it is nice to read about the stories and see them done well.

Luprical !

From a person just getting their taste of the warhammer universe, this book was amazing start to finish. I highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys fiction.

It begins!

True to an Abnett novel, you will be rooted to the words. This novel gives an in-depth, controversial look to the Astartes loyalty that will forever stick in your mind.
