If anyone knows any different and has a link to a legit page with dates on releases, please share them with me.
In the first edition of the novel, his opening sentence in the foreword is:

"Right now, I'm wrapping up The Talon of Horus and looking ahead to Book II."

Trust us, it is going to be a series.

To be honest, I don't take the word of the author until I hear from Black Library. The author may have planned a book two, but that doesn't mean BL picked it up.

Lets hope they do. However, that could explain why I haven't found any info on it from any other source than ADB.

From the BL website: http://www.blacklibrary.com/all-prod...rus-ebook.html

"READ IT BECAUSE...
This is the first novel in a brand new series that deals with the ultimate bad guy of the 41st millennium, written by the master of Warhammer 40,000 anti-heroes Aaron Dembski-Bowden. The Talon of Horus is the beginning of the most anticipated new Black Library series of 2014 and a must read for any fan of Warhammer 40,000 or the Horus Heresy."

Emphasis mine

Considering that the mass influx of orders for The Talon of Horus first edition crashed the BL website when it was opened for purchase, it would be quite crazy if they did not take on his following books in the series. It sold like hotcakes.

The Black Legion is the next in the series, should be featuring Abbadon forming it with his new lieutenants.

But no hard date yet? Probably told early. Thanks for the link, Matcap.

And the newly born Legion going to war with Sigismund and his Black Templars.

Yes...it would be stupid not to release a second book...but BL hasn't exactly been very smart lately

They aren't dumb enough not to release it. How much they charge for it? Well that's another matter.
