Alpharius: Head of the Hydra
A Primarchs novel
Who better to relate the tale of Alpharius than the primarch himself? As he tells of his deeds, bear one thing in mind: nothing can be trusted when it comes from serpent's mouth.
READ IT BECAUSE
I am Alpharius… and so are you.
Legends abound of the glorious – or infamous – deeds of the Emperor's sons. Yet almost nothing is known of Alpharius, the most mysterious of them all, for the Lord of the Alpha Legion is unparalleled in the art of obfuscation. Such are his gifts of secrecy and deceit that even his rediscovery has remained an enigma – until now. But when the tale comes from the serpent’s mouth, where do the lies end and the truth begin?
Mike Brooks was born in Ipswich, Suffolk and now lives in Nottingham with his wife, cats, snakes and a collection of tropical fish. He worked for a homelessness charity for over fifteen years, before deciding that he preferred making up stories for a living. When not writing, he plays guitar with his punk band and DJs wherever anyone will tolerate him.
It's the start of a brand new series of 18 books focusing on the greatest of heroes, the primarchs themselves. This volume kicks it all off with a tale of Roboute Guilliman at the height of his powers, leading his legion into battle at the apex of the Great Crusade.
