Novellas - L'Hérésie d'Horus

Sons of the Forge

Unscarred, unbroken
Charged with a solemn duty by the primarch himself, Forgefather T’kell of the Salamanders prepares for what may well be his final journey. Along with a chosen few of the Legion’s elite Firedrakes, he must bear the last seven of Vulkan’s greatest weapons away to the secret vault known as the Wrought, putting them forever beyond the reach of treacherous enemy and well-intentioned ally alike. But word has already spread of these legendary artefacts, and there are many who would see T’kell’s endeavour fail for their own gain – the Salamanders must remain true, no matter what horrors they might ...

Garro : Vow of Faith

The Emperor protects
Returning to the start of his spiritual journey, Nathaniel Garro abandons his duties to search instead for Euphrati Keeler, the Living Saint, and any answers she can give him….

The Unburdened

Betrrayal at Calth
Long considering themselves persecuted by the rest of the Imperium, the apostles of the XVIIth Legion have courted sedition, betrayal and even open heresy for decades. But for Kurtha Sedd of the Third Hand Chapter, the Word Bearers’ assault on Calth has proven… troubling. Drawn into the haunted shadows of the planet’s underworld, the Chaplain and his devout brethren must now put aside all other concerns and continue to wage war against the Ultramarines, no matter the ultimate cost.

The Honoured

Betrayal At Calth
In the immediate aftermath of the Word Bearers’ attack on Calth, survivors from both sides were driven into the subterranean arcology shelters by the tortured Veridian star. While their primarch Roboute Guilliman had planned for many seemingly unthinkable eventualities, the Ultramarines now face a new war in the underworld – could Steloc Aethon, renowned captain of ‘the Honoured 19th’ Company, be the one to lead them to ultimate victory over the traitors? Perhaps, if he can master his own bitter desire for vengeance….

Wolf King

The Lord of Winter and War
The Space Wolves were set upon by the forces of the Alpha Legion before they had even recovered from the Razing of Prospero – hounded to the edge of the Alaxxes Nebula, in desperation Leman Russ called out to his primarch brothers for aid. None came. Now, with their fleet stranded and supplies dwindling, the warriors of the Rout face almost certain death amidst the rust-red clouds of the nebula. But what a glorious end it shall be, worthy of the sagas of old, and Alpharius’s sons will soon learn that a cornered wolf is always the most deadly.
4.5/5

Wolf King est à la fois audacieux, intelligent et pose un véritable dilemme au lecteur, surtout lorsque la légion des Space Wolves ne vous laisse pas indifférent. Une novella qui vous invitera à repenser la 6ème, ses croyances comme ses obligations.

Cybernetica

Mars must be purged
Soon after word reached Terra of Horus’s nascent rebellion, Mars fell. Rogue elements within the Mechanicum priesthood, stirred by the Warmaster’s promises of independence and prosperity, turned against the Imperium and forced the primarch Rogal Dorn to order an impenetrable blockade of the Red Planet. Now it has become clear that the corruption has spread too deep, and that more drastic measures must be taken if the Forge World Principal is to be reclaimed. Calling upon the expertise of those who witnessed the so-called ‘Death of Innocence’ firsthand, Lord Dorn and Malcador the Sigillite c...
4/5

Si un technoprêtre lisait Cybernetica, il suinterait probablement de l'huile. Cet novella est sans équivoque pour tous les fans du culte de Mars mais aussi pour tous les autres qui y trouveront un récit dynamique, orienté vers l'action et saupoudré de tonnes de références au Mechanicum.

Corax : Soulforge

Victory is Vengeance
In spite of the corruption of Corax’s plans to rebuild his Legion after the Dropsite Massacre, the surviving Raven Guard remain defiant. Happening upon a stricken Word Bearers vessel far behind the front lines, they find evidence of a new alliance between the traitors and the forge world of Constanix II – with rumours of terrifying new war machines stalking battlefields across the sector, it is a threat too great to ignore. The primarch Corax must infiltrate the heart of the Mechanicum priesthood on Constanix if he is to win any allies for the war to come, though he will likely be forced to...

Tallarn : Ironclad

The darkness beneath...
The battle for Tallarn rages between the traitor Iron Warriors and the Imperial Army. A carpet of armour covers the surface of the toxic planet: Dreadnoughts versus tanks versus Titans. But what secret purpose drives the Iron Warriors onwards to war?.
3.5/5

Avec Tallarn : Ironclad vous allez en apprendre plus sur les forces s'affrontant sur Tallarn, mais l'impression que tout cela n'est qu'un apport superficiel à la saga donnera un manque de saveur à l’œuvre, comme si l’existence même de toute cette histoire n'était pas légi...

The Seventh Serpent

Cut off the head and the body dies
The crew of the Sisypheum join a covert assault on a hidden Alpha Legion outpost. Who but the legendary Iron Hands warleader Shadrak Meduson would dare to make such a bold move...?.
5/5

Avec Seventh Serpent, Graham McNeill a pris les devants pour son Crimson King mais a aussi donné suffisamment au fan de l'Alpha Légion pour le faire patienter et continuer de spéculer. Ajouter à cela des personnages captivants comme Alpharius, Wayland et Sharrokyn et vous avez une histoire q...

The Purge

Behind a loyal mask
The Shadow Crusade spreads across Ultramar, with the Word Bearers 34th Company falling upon the isolated world of Percepton Primus. As the fighting draws out into a programme of extermination, embittered commander Sor Talgron begins to question his part in Lorgar’s grander scheme – for one who stood beside primarchs and high lords in the grand halls of the Imperial Palace, what glory can there now be in punishing Guilliman’s upstart sons? But the price of doubt is known all too well, and if the Word Bearers are ever to return to Terra in triumph then they must purge the last remnants of suc...
3.5/5

The Purge nous narre de façon habile une double trame aux conséquences mystérieuses mais puissantes vues du bord Word Bearer. De son côté, Sor Talgron offrira au lecteur un malaise persistant quant aux choix de sa légion ainsi qu'à l'hostilité qu'il éprouve envers ses propres frère...
