Black Library is still in a festive move – it’s the 12 Days of Christmas countdown!
Hello BoLS Readers – I hope your Holidays are going smooth! With the end of Advent, I figured the Black Library was going to take a bit of a break, but apparently not! They are in the Christmas Spirit and are running “The 12 Days of Christmas” from Black Library. It looks like they are taking the classic Christmas Song and putting their own spin on things. Check it out:

12 Days of Christmas: Day 1
A Warhammer 40,000 short story
Brother Loraeus, the newest recruit to the Ultramarines Librarius, is given a simple task by Chief Librarian Tigurius – but when danger strikes, Loraeus must use all his wits and cunning to survive.
READ IT BECAUSE
It’s a small insight into the trials that would-be Librarians must face in order to be accepted into their Chapter’s secretive brotherhood of psykers. Also, it has nurglings in it.
Within the great brotherhoods of the Space Marine Chapters, there are those who stand apart. The Librarians – powerful battle-psykers who use their connection to the roiling currents of the warp to devastate their foes – are feared and misunderstood by those they call brother, but are loyal servants of the Emperor nonetheless. One such warrior, new to his powers, Brother Loraeus is given his first task as a member of the Ultramarines Librarius. But when disaster strikes and enemies attack, Loraeus must channel his power to defeat them and save his life – and perhaps his soul.

Cassius by Ben Counter
When a tyranid hive fleet is detected dangerously close to the Sol system, two entire companies of Ultramarines are sent to find and destroy the aliens. Led by their legendary Chaplain, Cassius, the Ultramarines must stop the tyranids, no matter what the cost. With typical bravery, courage and honour, the Ultramarines set about their task, but faced with impossible odds, and Cassius’s impetuous nature, victory is far from certain.
Shrike by George Mann
Vaunted warrior of the Raven Guard, Shrike has ascended the ranks of this most mysterious and deadly brotherhood all the way to Chapter Master. He is a legend amongst his battle-brothers, one that began humbly enough in the wilds of Kiavahr. Shrike has fought and bested many foes, but one in particular, the Ork Warlord Gorkrusha, dogged him throughout many campaigns. From veteran to Shadow Captain, Shrike clashed with his old nemesis time and again, determined to bring about a final reckoning and bloody vengeance to the greenskin.
