When the traitorous allies of Horus and Kelbor-Hal seized Mars, they sent elite hunters to apprehend key targets and ensure that any loyal resistance would fail. One such target was the legendary technoarchaeologist Arkhan Land, the discoverer of many lost treasures and curiosities from mankind's Golden Age — and the Imperial Fists cannot allow such a valuable mind to fall into the hands of the enemy. Does Land have good reason to fear his apparent saviours?.

Shunned by the rest of the Legions after the destruction of their home world, the Night Lords have fought without their disgraced primarch Konrad Curze for many years. But now the self-proclaimed ‘Night Haunter’ has returned and will lead them to the backwater world of Isstvan V, where a great treachery is unfolding, and the grim legionaries of First Claw will soon be forced to embrace their dark destiny.
Angron, gladiator-primarch of the XIIth Legion, is renowned across the galaxy for his savagery and brutal martial code. But amidst the ruins of Isstvan III, even as he slaughters his own wayward sons, he finds a unique serenity in the carnage of warfare... no matter whose blood he spills. And for what does the Eater of Worlds hunger above all else? Nothing more than freedom.
Malgré d'assez bonnes nouvelles dans l'ensemble, il sera difficile de ne pas comparer ce recueil aux autres. Moins épique et moins varié il sera difficile de le conseiller malgré ses bonnes idées.
The Navigator Nisha Andrasta has served the XIIth Legion for over a century. She saw the War Hounds reunited with their progenitor, Lord Angron.

She looked on in confusion and horror as the primarch joined Horus’s rebellion, and now she has seen him betrayed by Lorgar Aurelian, becoming the maddened monster he was always destined to be. Now, as the character of the XIIth changes along with their father, what course of action yet remains to this loyal daughter of Terra?.
Heart of the Conqueror est le genre d'initiative que nous voudrions voir plus souvent de la part des auteurs de la Black Library. L'histoire passionne en quelques pages seulement et l'on prend rapidement conscience qu'il est inutile de tirer des coups de bolt pour nous vendre ...
A Space Wolves pack rails at being sent back to Terra to watch over Rogal Dorn.
Si l'on occulte les fausses attentes données par la couverture et le manque de pertinence des nouvelles, il n'y aura malheureusement pas grand chose à retenir de ce petit recueil que nous devrions seulement considérer comme un bonus... et encore.
