This results in public and humiliating censure of Lorgar and the entire assembled Legion, by the Emperor himself. The despairing Lorgar is subsequently swayed by two of his most trusted lieutenants, who are in secret allegiance with Chaos; eventually both Primarch and Legion covertly embrace and promote the Primordial Truth , many years before Horus' corruption.
The story is largely told from the point of view of Argel Tal , a Captain of the Word Bearers, who becomes commander of a Chaos- possessed elite Legion unit. Prospero Burns: The Wolves unleashed Prospero Burns is part of the story arc of Book 12 , however it follows a different but related timeline. The story begins more than a century before the Space Wolves-led mission to Prospero , and the concurrent start of the Heresy.
On the surface it is his story; the important understory concerns the long-term machinations of Chaos, whose aim is the destruction of both Space Wolves and Thousand Sons. While this confrontation is taking place, Horus' previously covert rebellion becomes visible Book 3. The novel also adds background to Horus' fall and to the planning of the Heresy campaign by Chaos and its forces.
Age of Darkness Age of Darkness is a compilation of nine short stories by various authors. The stories present various facets of the unfolding conflict, as suspicion, insecurity, and paranoia spread through the galaxy on the wake of the Warmaster's betrayal. Subjects include: a Primarch prepares for the end of the Imperium; a Traitor PSYOP topples an Imperial planet; an unusual diplomatic contest will decide which side will be chosen by a world on the fence; a non-combatant may be a rebel agent or a herald of unpalatable truths for the Imperium; a Loyalist Space Marine in a Traitor Legion holds his own against his erstwhile brothers.
Several of the included stories are linked through continuity; some are also prequels or sequels to stories in other series books.
The Outcast Dead: The truth lies within The Outcast Dead is the first novel-length story in the series to take place almost entirely on Terra. It covers a relatively short period, starting several months before Magnus ' catastrophic psychic visit at the Imperial Palace Book 12 , and concluding several months after this event. The unauthorised visit is central to the story: apart from damaging the Emperor's top secret project Book 1 and the planet's defense, it massively disrupts Terra's long-range communications infrastructure.
The ensuing isolation and confusion cause indecision and delays for the Loyalist side. The story's main character is Kai Zulane , previously a gifted Imperial astropath attached to the Ultramarines Legion. He unwittingly becomes the keeper of a secret that could decide the victor in the developing galactic civil war.
The secret has additional implications regarding the Heresy's conclusion and the future course of the Imperium of Man. However, operatives and the Primarch of the Alpha Legion play a prominent role.
Arriving at Terra a few months after the events described in The Outcast Dead take place, Corax convinces the Emperor to impart to him the knowledge and material that may accelerate the rebuilding of his Legion. The novel features the reappearance of The Cabal Book 7 , and of other well-known characters; it also adds information about the developing strategies and subterfuge applied by the opposing sides, including reasons for Horus' timetable and for the Emperor's actions during the initial stages of the Heresy.
It is planned and led by the Traitor Word Bearers Legion, now fully and openly committed to the spread of the Primordial Truth.
The narrative starts close to where the timelines of Book 8 and Book 14 converge in their respective conclusions , with the invasion force en route to, or near the planet.
The rebel mission has aims beyond just delivering a crippling blow to the Ultramarines Legion and their home system; its objectives may affect the entire Heresy campaign. The story tracks the Calth assault from its opening covert phases, and the actions of several characters. Unaware of the developing rebellion and the Word Bearers' true role and allegiance, Primarch Roboute Guilliman and his Ultramarines are unprepared for the underhand invasion: it is total, bloody war, with ritualistic undertones, scorched earth tactics, decisive use of technology, and the considerable involvement of Chaos ; the inconceivable treachery and its implications forever change the Loyalists' view of reality.
The Primarchs The Primarchs is a compilation of four novellas by different authors, each story starring one of the "sons" of the Emperor. Book 21 to Book 30[ edit ] The plan almost succeeds; yet conflicting agendas among anti-Imperial protagonists, as well as the fortitude and unorthodox tactics of quick-to-adapt Blood Angels, narrowly result in Loyalist victory.
In the meantime Horus' rebellion erupts openly and the Loyalists suffer catastrophic losses in the Dropsite Massacre Book 5. Shadows of Treachery Shadows of Treachery is a compilation that collects five short stories previously published in limited editions , art books , or other formats, and also contains two new novellas.
Other Legions and Primarchs are also featured, while one short story takes place on Mars and illuminates an aspect of the Traitor Mechanicum's conspiracy. The narratives of all stories fill gaps in the series or add further details about the Heresy and its actors; they cover periods that range from several decades before the conflict to around the time frame of Book 18 one short story is a prequel to that novel.
Angel Exterminatus: Flesh and iron Angel Exterminatus covers a Traitor operation in uncharted and dangerous galactic space, that may purportedly decide the war in favour of the rebels. The story provides further glimpses of disparate motivations and conflicting objectives among traitor factions as the Heresy campaign continues.
However the core plot is set in motion by Fulgrim and the Emperor's Children, who share the spotlight. The embittered Iron Warriors have aligned with Horus out of frustration with the ignominious and unheralded role assigned them by the Imperium; before the story begins, they lash out in unforgivable genocide.
In the story, they are invited to the freelance operation which is unknown to the Warmaster by Fulgrim and his Legion, who have their own agenda. The operation's true goal is kept secret from Perturabo and his Space Marines, who come to realise that not all fellow rebels can be trusted. A side thread involves Fabius Bile , the chief medical officer of the Emperor's Children, and the Traitors' top geneticist ; he is on a no-holds-barred quest to exceed the Emperor's genetic achievements.
Betrayer: Blood for the Blood God Betrayer returns the series to the action in the Ultramar theatre ; it starts around the time the events of Book 19 begin to unfold.
In tenuous and fragile cooperation, the two very different Traitor Legions lay waste to worlds across Ultramar; it is a "Shadow Crusade" meticulously planned by Primarch Lorgar of the Word Bearers, who deploys Abyss -class spaceships.
The campaign's strategic goal is the destruction or isolation of the powerful Ultramarines Legion, its home star system, and the system's considerable resources; removing Ultramar as a factor in the war is one of Horus' primary objectives.
The scheming Primarch of the Word Bearers orchestrates genocide in unprecedented scale, as a way to summon the powers of Chaos. With their help, he hopes to generate the so-called Ruinstorm, an immense interdimensional disturbance that will create an impenetrable veil around Ultramar.
As the final piece of his plan, Lorgar engineers the "ascension" into daemonhood of the increasingly unstable Angron: the event is to act as the conduit for the unnatural storm. Mark of Calth Mark of Calth is the fifth compilation to appear in the series; it contains seven short stories and one novella, each by a different author.
