Space Marines from multiple Chapters unite alongside Titan Legions and the Astra Militarum to defend the world of Armageddon from ork warlord Ghazghkull Thraka.
In the bleak 41st millennium, the planet Armageddon is on the cusp of annihilation. The strategically vital hive world has captured the attention of infamous ork warlord Ghazghkull Thraka, and when the Astra Militarum and whole Titan Legions prove unable to halt the invasion, it is feared that both the planet and the wider sector will be lost to the greenskins. But the Imperium refuses to succumb and unleashes the Space Marines - genetically engineered warriors who thirst for naught but blood and victory. But can even this alliance of mankind's greatest warriors hope to turn the tide against Ghazghkull and his endless ork horde? This high-octane omnibus contains the classic novel Helsreach by New York Times bestselling author Aaron Dembski-Bowden, alongside four novellas and a host of short stories by some of Black Library best-known authors, including Guy Haley, Nick Kyme, Chris Wraight and Josh Reynolds.
About the Author
Robbie MacNiven is a Highlands-born History graduate from the University of Edinburgh. He has written the Warhammer Age of Sigmar novel Scourge of Fate and Gotrek Gurnisson novella The Bone Desert, as well as the Warhammer 40,000 novels Blood of Iax, The Last Hunt, Carcharodons: Red Tithe, Carcharodons: Outer Dark and Legacy of Russ.

Nick Horth is the author of the novels City of Secrets and Callis and Toll: The Silver Shard, the novella Heart of Winter, as well as several short stories for Age of Sigmar. Nick works as a background writer for Games Workshop, crafting the worlds of Warhammer Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40,000. He lives in Nottingham, UK. Evan Dicken's first story for Black Library was ‘The Path to Glory’, and he has since penned several more tales set in the Age of Sigmar, including the novella The Red Hours, and short fiction for the anthologies Gods & Mortals and Myths & Revenants. He has been an avid reader of Black Library novels since he found dog-eared copies of Trollslayer, Xenos and First and Only nestled in the “Used Fantasy/Sci-fi” rack of his local gaming store. He still considers himself an avid hobbyist, although the unpainted Chaos Warband languishing in his basement would beg to differ. By day, he studies old Japanese maps and crunches data at The Ohio State University.
Darius Hinks’ first novel, Warrior Priest, won the David Gemmell Morningstar Award for best newcomer. Since then he has carved a bloody swathe through the Warhammer world with Island of Blood, Sigvald, Razumov’s Tomb and the Orion trilogy.
