It’s been a long time, but Gaunt’s Ghosts are back! After the dangers of Salvation’s Reach, the Tanith are thrown into something new and different for them, but just as dangerous as their previous adventures…
After the success of their desperate mission to Salvation’s Reach, Colonel-Commissar Gaunt and the Tanith First race to the strategically vital forge world of Urdesh, besieged by the brutal armies of Anarch Sek. However, there may be more at stake than just a planet. The Imperial forces have made an attempt to divide and conquer their enemy, but with Warmaster Macaroth himself commanding the Urdesh campaign, it is possible that the Archenemy assault has a different purpose – to decapitate the Imperial command structure with a single blow. Has the Warmaster allowed himself to become an unwitting target? And can Gaunt’s Ghosts possibly defend him against the assembled killers and war machines of Chaos?

If you’ve never experienced the start of Black Library’s longest-running Warhammer 40,000 series, now’s your chance. And if you have, you can read them again, like revisiting old friends.
In the Chaos-infested Sabbat system, the massed ranks of the Imperial Guard stand shoulder to shoulder as they counter an invasion by heretical forces. Amongst the Guard are the troops of the Tanith First and Only, a displaced army forced to flee their home planet before it succumbed to the unrelenting assault of Chaos. Nicknamed the Ghosts, their specialist scouting role has thrown them into the thickest of the fighting, trying to complete whatever desperate mission their uncaring commanders have volunteered them for. Now, their leader Ibram Gaunt must evade the treacherous scheming of rival regiments and the lethal firepower of the enemy if he is to win through and lead his Ghosts to victory.

First and Only
A Horus Heresy novel
The First Legion go to war, and their primarch’s brutal actions threaten to tear apart the fragile alliance of Imperium Secundus.
READ IT BECAUSE
There was no way Imperium Secundus was going to last (or we’d know about it in the 41st millennium, wouldn’t we?) and this is the beginning of the end…
With the Dark Angels spread across a hundred systems, primarch Lion El’Jonson stands as Lord Protector of Ultramar – though his true motives are known to few indeed, and old rivalries on the home world threaten to tear the Legion in half. But when word comes of the Night Lords’ attack on Sotha, the Lion’s brutal actions bring Imperium Secundus once again to the brink of civil war. Not even the most fearsome warriors of the Dreadwing, nor any arcane secret of the Order, can guarantee victory if he sets himself against his loyal brothers.
