Book 42: Garro – Weapon of Fate


The Horus Heresy Book 42
Exclusive to eBook for a limited time!

Death Guard. Battle-Captain. Knight Errant. Agentia Primus. Hero. Nathaniel Garro’s journey has been long and hard and now, you can read it all in one book, embellished and expanded from the original audio dramas.

Garro hasn’t reached the end of his journey quite yet – the Siege of Terra awaits him – but for the very first time, you can read his entire saga in a single volume, from his first mission as an agent of the Sigillite to his decision to break away and seek his own destiny.

From out of the shadows of the Silent War, a hero emerges. Clad all in grey, an errant warrior of the Legiones Astartes kneels before the Regent of Terra, and accepts a solemn new duty – Battle-Captain Garro, once commander of the Eisenstein, now Agentia Primus of Malcador the Sigillite. From the desolation of Isstvan to the halls of the Imperial Palace itself, he stands as a paragon of loyalty and protector of the innocent, ever ready to strike back at the traitorous allies of the Warmaster. But Garro is walking a path of his own, one that may lead him to question his own place in the Imperium… and what if he, too, should falter?

This book contains James Swallow’s complete saga of Nathaniel Garro in the Horus Heresy – the audio drama series is embellished and expanded in prose, with additional scenes to represent the author’s original vision. This all serves as prelude to the events of the novella Vow of Faith, bringing Garro closer to his inescapable destiny as the first true martyr of the Lectitio Divinitatus.

Written by James Swallow

This novel includes content from the audio dramas Garro: Oath of Moment, Garro: Legion of One, Garro: Sword of Truth, Garro: Shield of Lies, Burden of Duty and Garro: Ashes of Fealty, plus the novella Garro: Vow of Faith.

The eBook edition includes integrated illustrations of characters and events from the story, and an afterword that places the story in context within the series.


For those of you who just can’t get enough Bloodshed the Space Sharks are patrolling the void – and it’s about to get brutal!

Carcharadons: Red Tithe


A Warhammer 40,000 novel

Night has fallen on the prison world of Zartak. Renegades from the Imperium’s dawn stalk the complex, bringing pain and death. But something just as dangerous awaits them: the loyal, but brutal and predatory, Carcharodons.

A darkened prison, a pack of Night Lords and the Imperium’s most predatory Space Marines – what more could you want from a story?


On the prison world of Zartak, darkness has fallen on arbitrators and inmates alike. The Night Lords have come, and with them the shadow of fear and pain. But they are not the only ones with an interest in Zartak. From the void, running on silent, another fleet emerges. Its warriors are grey-clad and white-faced, and their eyes are as black as the Outer Dark – the savage Carcharodon Astra. As these two packs of ancient, merciless predators stalk the shadows of the prison colony, both seeking a single young inmate with unnatural talents, the corridors run red, and both factions will have to fight tooth and claw to leave Zartak alive.

Blood in the water. Blood in the Void!

  • BloodAngel

    The Carcharodon marine on the cover kind of has a face that looks a bit like a shark.

    • euansmith

      And a body that looks a bit like a whale 😉

    • Statham

      And a name that rhymes with ‘Spielberg’.

  • SilentPony

    So…the Garro book is just a reprint of all the other Garro stories, going back years, with a single new Novella that’s already spoiled in the tagline when they refer to him as “The First Martyr of the Lectitio Divinitatus”
    Way to go BL

    • Vow of Faith was released two years ago as a standalone novella.

      Laurie Goulding keeps stressing that this isn’t simply an anthology but actually partially rewritten, merged together and with plenty of new scenes and new context. Should be enough new material in it.

      • SilentPony

        Yeah, I can see it now:
        “In the scene where Garro talks to the Sigillite, I always wanted Dewbacks and Imperial ATSTs walking in the background, but I just didn’t have the word technology to make it a reality.
        And when Garro is walking down the hall, I wanted TIE Fighters to be flying outside the window, really to show off the scale of the scene.”

      ..which is exactly why I stopped buying any and all short stories, audio dramas and whatnot that BL produces years ago; they inevitably reprint them all again later together in an anthology.
