The first in a new trilogy from veteran Salamanders author Nick Kyme, available in trade paperback for the first time.
Five years have passed since war came to Nocturne. While Third Company recovers its strength, the Salamanders of Fifth Company must now wage war. On Heletine, the Black Legion has come in the name of Chaos and only Brother-Captain Drakgaard’s warriors stand in the way of their dark glory. Victory for the Imperium hinges on the alliance between the Salamanders and the Sisters of the Ebon Chalice, warrior zealots and devout servants of the Ecclesiarchy. But there is more to this Promethean War than conquest, and only as the conflict grinds on are the true motives of the enemy revealed…
