A Horus Heresy story

Night is falling. The greatest darkness in Terra’s history is coming. Rogal Dorn and his fellows look to the skies, as they await the coming of Horus. And he is near…

John French is the master of the quiet moment, the calm before the storm, and this story is the last calm before the greatest storm that has ever hit the Throneworld…

Midnight is coming. For long years, the defenders of Terra have stood sentinel, awaiting the inevitable: the coming of the Warmaster, the traitor Horus and his horde. For Rogal Dorn, his brother primarchs and his loyal sons – among the billions of others awaiting the breaking of the storm – the wait is almost over. The sun is setting and night falling. And the enemy comes.

Written by John French

It’s always darkest before the Dorn…

  • SilentPony

    This one was really good. The build up of tension, because we know what’s happening…woof.

    “How long before we see the fist lights?”
    “Two hours.”
    Two hours.

    Great stuff!

  • But but but the comment section told me we’ll never reach the Siege of Terra, and now we got three short stories leading right up to it! This can’t be right.

    • SilentPony

      No, not they we’ll never reach, but that we should never reach. Because they can’t possibly do justice to billions
      if not trillions strong armies of Legions, daemons and men fighting it out over an entire planet surface for 9 months.
