When the reincarnation of Saint Sabbat herself appears on the brutal, fiery battlefields of Urdesh, the Iron Snakes Chapter must race to secure that which may decide the ultimate fate of the world – and the Sabbat Worlds Crusade at large.
READ IT BECAUSE
The Iron Snakes return in an action-packed clash between spirituality and brutal practicality, in the first story of a new series set against the backdrop of the Sabbat Worlds Crusade.
The mighty world of Urdesh is burning. The smoke of war mingles with the ash of her countless volcanoes. The wreckage of battle litters her forge-cities and chokes her once-fertile seas. Until the warriors of the Imperium can free Urdesh from the grip of the Anarch, the future of the entire Sabbat Worlds Crusade will hang in the balance.
Across these blasted battlefields strides Brother-Captain Priad and the warriors of Damocles Squad. They must keep safe one of the Imperium’s greatest weapons: the Beati, the reincarnation of Saint Sabbat herself, whose very presence on Urdesh inspires the Imperial armies on to glory. But the enemy has plans for the Saint too, and against the malice of the Anarch and the trickery of the warp, the Iron Snakes may truly need a miracle to prevail…
