This latest addition to the series, written by renowned Black Library author Graham McNeill, focuses on the master of siege Perturabo and his legion of Iron Warriors. Joining forces with the Emperor’s Children, Perturabo leads his force in search of an ancient xenos weapon capable of extreme destructive potential, all the while being hounded by the survivors of Isstvan  V and the remnants of an Eldar craftworld.

As well as being published in hardback, this new novel in the popular Warhammer 40k series will contain exclusive artwork by Karl Richardson.
