Were you there the day Horus slew the Emperor? We certainly were, though it’s hard to believe that the Horus Heresy series has been around almost ten years. And shows no signs of slowing down with the thirty-second book in the series, Deathfire, available to pre-order now.
The book tells the tale of the XVIII Legion as they return to Nocturne with the body of their Primarch, Vulkan. Following on from the events that take place in The Unremembered Empire, Deathfire is a tragic tale, for the Salamanders have lost much, including many of their battle-brothers and the father of their legion who, for the first time, has not recovered from his wounds. It’s a harrowing journey for Artellus Numeon, former Captain of the Pyre Guard, who must lead his brothers against some of the most horrific foes the Emperor’s warriors have ever faced.
Like all new Horus Heresy books, Deathfire is a hefty hardback book complete with shiny dust jacket and four pieces of internal artwork that add to the excitement and depth of the story. The last piece of artwork in particular is a real show-stopper. Don’t skip ahead, though, you’ll ruin the surprise.
But that’s not all…
