Following on from Urdesh: The Serpent and the Saint, the focus is once again on a small handful of Space Marines in the city of Ghereppan on Urdesh. The Iron Snakes must decide for themselves if the cryptic message of Saint Sabbat can be taken for the truth or if the sinister Magister Sek is leading them all into a trap.
READ IT BECAUSE This intimate story gives us a new perspective on how Space Marines fit into the broader context of an Astra Militarum-led war effort. The actions of a single squad of superhuman warriors can have far-reaching effects on the campaign.
THE STORY Saint Sabbat has brought a miracle to the war-torn city of Ghereppan, but one battle is not the war. The voice of Magister Sek still haunts the Imperial forces, defying their victory, mocking their faith.
Between the trickery of the Archenemy and the mercurial visions of the Saint, the Space Marines of Damocles Squad must find the truth: is this their one chance for a final victory on Urdesh, or is it a trap that could destroy them all? Written by Matthew Farrer.
