On a misty cemetery world, three strangers are drawn together through mysterious circumstances. Each of them has a tale to tell of a narrow escape from death. Amid the toll of funerary bells and the creep and click of mortuary-servitors, the truth is confessed. But whose story can be trusted? Whose recollection is warped, even unto themselves?

If i was reviewing this as simply short stories then I'd say they we're decent enough 40k stories, but with the exception of the 2nd story, the horror aspect was a little lacking for me. That said, Doug Bradley brilliantly narrated the first story and the 2nd story had a decent horror feel to it. Overall, not a bad listen, but one that i could havr missed.

After a long and gruelling conflict, the traitors at last close upon Terra. But time is dwindling for an attack. Both Guilliman and the Lion are returning with all haste, and their armies could turn the tide. The hosts of the Warmaster must unite, for only then can they attack the Throneworld itself. While Mortarion is sent on ahead as the fleet’s vanguard, it falls to Lorgar and Perturabo to marshal Fulgrim and Angron, both now elevated to daemonhood and perhaps beyond even the will of the Warmaster to command.

A book that shows the fragility of the sons of Horus wirhout the warmaster and the traitor alliances as a whole. Also gives a great insight into the differences between the ascended and non-daemon Primarchs and their allegiances. A story that shows just how much of a knife edge the traitors were on just prior to the final assault on Terra. A must reas for heresy fans.

Since the dark days of the Great Awakening, the scattered remnants of humanity have clung to a bleak existence, surviving howsoever they can, no matter what the cost. Tamra, a voivode of the Rictus clans, fights one last, desperate battle for the survival of her tribe, the Drak. Now her people face their most relentless enemy ever - the lumbering minions of the Plague God. Where is their lord Nagash, the Undying King, when his people need him most?

For a Nagash book, Nagash featured very little in the book and this felt more like a Neferata book. Don't get me wrong, it's enjoyable enough, but i was really expecting an extension of the older Nagash books which this really didnt feel like.

Removed from the concerns of the galaxy at large and regarding the Warmaster's unfolding Heresy with cold detachment, he has dedicated his hollow existence to the preservation of all the knowledge once held in the great libraries of Tizca, should mankind ever seek such enlightenment again. But his sons can see the change in their primarch - he is a broken soul whose mind and memories are slipping away into the tumult of the warp.

Really enjoyed this, great story and great insight into the Heresy Ahriman and Magnus. There were times it felt like it was a bit meandering, but everything snaps back to an explosive climax.
