About this deal

You can’t keep a good duardin down, as the saying goes. Gotrek and Amara return to the wilds of Ghyran, where Nurgle’s Garden has manifested in Richard Strachan’s Blightslayer . It is The End. After more than 20 years of gripping novels the final moments of the Horus Heresy are in sight. Hundreds of characters have fought tooth and nail to reach this epic conclusion, and many millions more lie dead in their wake as worlds burn across the galaxy.

While exploring the Imperial library Loken finds a door that didn't exist previously and it takes him to the Vengeful Spirit. The book ends with him entering the ship We’re not going to go into every little detail of the plot here. I can’t promise this will be spoiler free, but we’ll give it a go.The centrepiece of part two is Sanguinius vs Horus. And that is very different in every respect to the centrepiece of part three, which is Horus vs the Emperor. There was a very deliberate attempt on my part to make sure those things didn’t just become just more of the same.”

I could not find any information about a possible release date or any info about length or whatever about the book. With the war at this critical juncture, Sanguinius, primarch of the loyalist Blood Angels, braves the horrors of the Warmaster’s flagship, The Vengeful Spirit, with a single purpose in mind – to slay his brother Horus, decapitate the Heresy once and for all, and stop the forces of Chaos from taking Terra. The End and the Death is the eighth and final novel of the Siege of Terra series. [1] It will be split into an unknown number of parts. [2]

But at the whim of a Warmaster fallen so far from grace, the Dark Gods will not make Sanguinius’ task easy. As the war edges towards its explosive, bloody conclusion, events are about to unfold that could either save humanity or plunge it headlong into an eternity of darkness. So what is it about? “It’s the final hours of the Siege, the confrontation between the Emperor and Horus, which is immense. And it’s also obviously the fallout of all the other major events that are going on at the time. It’s the end of the Heresy era and the beginning is something new. There is a sense of history, pivoting in the most dramatic sense, and a lot of very important loose ends come together.” Because the Emperor is on the first book's cover? And the clash between Sanguinius and Horus was really the dividing line for the Emperor- before Horus killed Sanguinius there was still some hope that he could be turned from his path, but once the Emperor saw Sanguinius (arguably his most noble son) dead by Horus' hand He knew that destroying Horus was the only way. The end is undoubtedly on its way, but tying up a series as sprawling and complex as the Horus Heresy isn’t so simple! Terra is besieged. The outcome of the war lies on a knife edge. The Warmaster Horus’ bloody seven-year crusade has led to this – the cradle of humanity, where he is to kill his father, the Emperor.
