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.

Read it Because
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.
No and don’t read
No one cares or has ever cared about the ultra Smurf’s or the imperial cysts...stop making them your main characters. I enjoyed every moment of abartes and civilian dialogue but those two space marine chapters are trash. Being said no one from GW will read this, and some might have other opinions. This is barely a necron novel, and a mediocre attempt at validating two over written and Mary Sue chapters, of space marines, while zero respect is payed to actual necron characters or plot development. End illiterate rant.
