Chris Wraight


Even within the dread annals of the Horus Heresy, few events have provoked as much horror as the dropsite massacre on Isstvan V, when the Space Marines turned on their brothers in an orgy of slaughter. The Legions were torn apart, the civil war spiralling outwards to all corners of the Imperium, shattering the trust that once bound them together. Along with a handful of other renegade Death Guard legionaries, ex-Deathshroud Terminator Sergeant Khorak has begun to raid the fringes of the Imperium — until they are cornered by mysterious warriors in crudely painted black armour, l...

The Silent War

Chosen of the Sigillite
Across the galaxy, war rages… but while great battle and heroic deeds form the backbone of the war, the conflict extends much further, into darkness and shadow.

The Path of Heaven

Riding out from the storm
The Khan returns! After the events of Scars, the White Scars Legion have chosen their loyalties. Now, after years of battle against the traitors, it's time to return to Terra and prepare for the inevitable invasion. But first, Jaghatai and his warriors must brave a gauntlet of enemies and the terrors of the warp.

The Path of Heaven est un tome important dans la saga de L'Hérésie d'Horus et son auteur parvient à nous insuffler la force mais aussi la fragilité du Khagan et de ses fils dans un récit rythmé, riche par ses personnages et complet par sa trame. Les White Scars n'ont jamais autant ...

Eye of Terra

I am the Emperor's vigilance
The galaxy burns at Horus’s command, and a billion more lives are lost with each passing moment – though it was not always so. Once, the title of Warmaster stood for honour, loyalty and a fierce pride in the strength of the Space Marine Legions. But perhaps by following the myriad lines of destiny and defiance that were already woven around the primarchs and their sons, we may yet come to understand the bitterness that can eat away at even the most steadfast of souls….

Grey Talon

Audio Drama : 60 min
After the horrors of Isstvan, the XVIth Legion destroyer-class Grey Talon now flies under a loyalist crew on a campaign of retribution and vengeance, using her original colours to strike covertly at isolated traitor forces. Commanded by Bion Henricos of the Iron Hands, the ship is also home to many disgraced White Scars who have taken death-oaths to seek atonement – among them the peerless warrior Hibou Khan. But tensions run higher with each new engagement and, without a wider strategy to guide them, the crew of the Grey Talon will surely come to a grim and sudden end.

Il m'a fallu du temps pour apprécier Grey Talon à sa juste valeur, son narrateur m'empêchant de bien apprécier l'envergure de l’œuvre. Néanmoins après plusieurs écoutes, cet audio a beaucoup de qualités.

La Guerre Éternelle

Heresy Begets Retribution
La vision de L'Empereur pour l'humanité a été réduite en lambeaux, et la Grande Croisade n'est plus qu'un lointain souvenir. Et alors que les flammes de la rébellion d'Horus se répandent au travers de la galaxie et que la guerre engloutit chaque jour de nouveaux systèmes planétaires, certains osent poser la question qui brûle tant de lèvres : les signes n'étaient-ils pas visibles depuis le début? L'époque est sombre, et une seule chose est certaine : la galaxie ne sera plus jamais en paix, ni dans cette vie ni dans les mille à venir….

Wolf King

The Lord of Winter and War
The Space Wolves were set upon by the forces of the Alpha Legion before they had even recovered from the Razing of Prospero – hounded to the edge of the Alaxxes Nebula, in desperation Leman Russ called out to his primarch brothers for aid. None came. Now, with their fleet stranded and supplies dwindling, the warriors of the Rout face almost certain death amidst the rust-red clouds of the nebula. But what a glorious end it shall be, worthy of the sagas of old, and Alpharius’s sons will soon learn that a cornered wolf is always the most deadly.

Wolf King est à la fois audacieux, intelligent et pose un véritable dilemme au lecteur, surtout lorsque la légion des Space Wolves ne vous laisse pas indifférent. Une novella qui vous invitera à repenser la 6ème, ses croyances comme ses obligations.


Driven almost to the brink of self-destruction by the death of Ferrus Manus, the Iron Hands now seek vengeance for the many horrors of Isstvan V. Gathering survivors from the Raven Guard and the Salamanders aboard any vessels capable of warp travel, they wage a new campaign of annihilation against the traitor forces across the galaxy — a campaign masterminded by legendary warleader Shadrak Meduson.

The Hunt for Magnus

It is the end of the thirty-second millennium. For two thousand years, since the fall of Prospero, the Space Wolves have hunted their greatest foe, the quarry who escaped them on that benighted world: Magnus the Red, sorcerer-primarch of the Thousand Sons. Now, Great Wolf Harek Ironhelm has the traitor primarch’s scent... Determined to finish what Leman Russ began, Ironhelm sets out to capture and kill his prey, and the Hunt for Magnus begins.
