science fiction > military science fiction, anthology
Across the galaxy, war rages... but while great battle and heroic deeds form the backbone of the war, the conflict extends much further, into darkness and shadow...
While loyalist and traitor forces clash on a thousand battlefields across the galaxy, a very different kind of war is being fought in the shadows – a war of subtlety and subterfuge, unknown to many, but one that surely holds the key to victory for either side. Rogal Dorn and his Legion prepare to defend the Solar System against the armies of Warmaster Horus, even as Malcador the Sigillite charges his many agents and spies with missions of the utmost secrecy. The future of the Imperium is being shaped by unseen hands...
The mysterious Malcador the Sigillite and his secretive minions take centre stage in a collection of short stories – plus one novella – that expand the Horus Heresy into the darkness with thrilling tales of subterfuge and treachery, many of them in print for the first time.
