Fresh from their conquest of Chondax and the discovery of Horus's rebellion, Jaghatai Khan's warriors stand divided. Long considered one of the less trustworthy Legions, many of the White Scars claim to owe their loyalty exclusively to Terra, and others still to the Warmaster and his warrior lodges. But when a distress call from Leman Russ of the Space Wolves brings the wrath of the Alpha Legion to Chondax, the Khan's hand is forced and the decision must be made - in the great war for the Imperium, will he side with the Emperor or Horus?
Chris Wraight is a writer of fantasy and science fiction, whose first novel was published in 2008. He's written several books set in the Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 universes, including the bestselling Space Marine Battles novel Battle of the Fang. He doesn't own a cat, dog, or augmented hamster (which technically disqualifies him from writing for Black Library), but would quite like to own a tortoise one day. He's based in a leafy bit of south-west England, and when not struggling to meet deadlines enjoys running through scenic parts of it.
