This week sees the second book of the Siege of Terra series – Guy Haley’s The Lost and the Damned – available to pre-order, alongside a novel from the Age of Sigmar and no fewer than four Warhammer 40,000 paperbacks. Read on to find out more.
The Lost and the Damned continues the tale of the Siege of Terra where The Solar War left off – the Traitor fleet has defeated the defensive armada and surrounds the Throneworld. The bombardment has begun… and now the focus switches to the ground war. Billions of conscripted soldiers man barricades, determined to see off the first assault. Yet they have no idea what lies in store for them, for the Traitors have weapons beyond imagining, fuelled by the powers of the warp.
The novel shows a ground-level view of the war for Terra, with ordinary soldiers seeing the horror of an enemy twisted by Chaos, as well as taking inspiration from the might of the Space Marines, primarchs and even towering Battle Titans. It’s epic in every sense of the word. As well as the battles on the ground, it showcases the metaphysical battles taking place between the Emperor and Chaos, and how the fate of one is inextricably linked with that of the other.
You can pre-order The Lost and the Damned in hardback, eBook and MP3 audiobook editions now.
The next book in the Horus Heresy – Gav Thorpe’s The Last Wall – is coming your way soon. We have a funny feeling you might want to get a good look at the artwork that will adorn the cover, along with that of Sons of the Selenar, a forthcoming Siege of Terra novel by Graham McNeill. You’re in luck – here they are! Enjoy…
In the Mortal Realms, the Blood Queen Neferata fights a war on several fronts. In Neferata: The Dominion of Bones by David Annandale, the armies of Khorne gather to rip her from her throne* while Sigmar’s Stormcast Eternals seek to tear down everything Nagash and his undying servants have built. Worst of all, treachery is afoot within Neferatia. It will take all of Neferata’s guile and strength to prevail…
A quartet of paperbacks from the 41st Millennium complete this week’s releases. The Space Marines of Talon Squad take the battle to xenos foes in Steve Parker’s novels Deathwatch and Shadowbreaker. In the first book, the team must enter a Genestealer lair and purge the alien abominations before they corrupt a world. The sequel sees Talon Squad on the hunt for a missing inquisitor on a T’au Empire-controlled planet – but all is not as it seems.
Peter Fehervari’s Requiem Infernal turns the spotlight onto the Adepta Sororitas. An obscure order on a distant world have their quiet lives disrupted by outsiders, who bring danger with them and awaken yet more on their hosts’ planet – and perhaps within their very souls.
Finally, Lords and Tyrants is an anthology of 16 short stories from across the Imperium, including tales of vile Chaos warlords like Lucius the Eternal, alien horrors from a variety of races, and many great heroes of the Imperium, from the brave soldiers of the Astra Militarum to lords of the Adeptus Astartes.
Each of these four books sheds light on different corners of the Warhammer 40,000 universe, giving you a look at brave warriors, soulless villains, outrageous horrors and thrilling heroism. All are available to pre-order now in paperback.
