Requiem Infernal (hardback): $27
On a distant world, an obscure order of the Adepta Sororitas study their founder’s visions. They live in solitude… which is about to be broken as danger approaches.
The Adepta Sororitas of the Last Candle have stood vigil over their sanctuary world for centuries, striving to decipher their founder’s tormented visions. Outsiders are unwelcome… yet still they come.
Decimated by an encounter with a lethal xenos entity, the survivors of an elite Astra Militarum company have journeyed to the Candleworld in search of healing, escorted by a woman who is no stranger there – Sister Hospitaller Asenath Hyades, who turned her back on the order decades ago.
As the seekers near the sect’s bastion, malign forces begin to stir among the planet’s storm-wracked spires, but the most insidious shadows lie in their own souls.
Written by Peter Fehervari
Palace of Memory & other Stories (audio book): $17.50
Hamilcar Bear-Eater, Lord-Castellan of the Astral Templars Stormhost, was warned not to venture into the twisted shadeglass labyrinth of Shadespire. Naturally, he headed there right away, because no one tells Hamilcar what he can’t do… Now he’s trapped, lost, alone, and haunted – both by the ghosts that inhabit the City of Mirrors and by the spectres of his own past, doubts and fears. Can he overcome these obstacles and escape to fight again? Probably – he is Hamilcar, mightiest of all the Stormcast Eternals, after all!

Warlords of Karak Eight Peaks (paperback): $21
During the Golden Age of the dwarfs, Karak Eight Peaks was a beacon of prosperity. Now it is beset by foes – skaven, goblins and more. The tales in this omnibus chart the desperate defence against these brutal enemies.
Once, during the great Golden Age of the dwarfs, Karak Eight Peaks was a beacon of prosperity and unbridled wealth. Many a dwarf king looked on with envious eyes at this sprawling mountain fastness. But the history of the dwarfs is riddled with tragedy and none more so than the lords of Eight Peaks whose holds were devastated by earthquakes and ravaged by the predatations of goblins, ratmen and even darker horrors.
This omnibus edition charts three bleak episodes in the history of the doomed Eight Peaks and its fall to annihilation and infamy. From warlords like the cunning goblin king Skarsnik and the murderous skaven chieftain Headtaker to the noble dwarfs seeking to save or reclaim these war-torn halls for their kin like Thorgrim Grudgebearer, all have a stake in the fate of the notorious Karak Eight Peaks.
Includes the novels Skarsnik and Headtaker, the novella Thorgim and several short stories.

Horus Heresy: Ruinstorm (paperback): $9.99
Imperium Secundus lies revealed as a heretical folly. Terra has not fallen, though it remains inaccessible. Sanguinius, Guilliman and the Lion El’Johnson, the primarchs of the Triumvirate, must reach Terra at all costs. They seek to defend the Emperor, and to atone for their sins. But the Ruinstorm, a galaxy-wide maelstrom of chaos, hides the Throneworld from the primarchs. Now the fleets of three Legions depart Macragge, and the primarchs will stop at nothing to overcome the Ruinstorm. Yet an insidious enemy watches their every move, and plots against the weaknesses of the errant sons of the Emperor. Each has his own inner storm, and each marches towards his own ruin.
