Default "H.H. - Child of the Night" E-short by J. French.

John French has a new short released today. I think it looks interesting, especially with this character that just appeared in a small "cameo" in ATS. Also that he sounds like a loyalist is exciting. I'll hold off with buying until for now, as I bet it will be released in a anthology later on. But French has some good writing in the past and I love the NL.

The story:
In the dark hive sumps beneath Terra, Chief Librarian Fel Zharost of the Night Lords Legion is being hunted. Having abandoned his insane primarch and brothers many years ago, he doesn’t know what he’s done wrong, but he’s sure he doesn’t want to be captured. What will happen when he discovers that his Legion has fallen into heresy? And where will his loyalties lie?

I hope it's long enough to flesh out a good story, the plot souds interesting. I smell Garro...
It's a shame but I can't remember the ATS cameo that you mentioned OP.

He was mentioned as one of the 12 Librarians who spoke out in favour of Magnus's position at the Council of Nikaea.

Given the price (£1.99) it will be very short, unfortunately. I'm going to get a copy and read it later and report back.

Please not a loyalist Night Lord. Sounds ridiculous.

Why? In a Legion with anywhere from 80,000-100,000 members, it's conceivable that not every single one of them is a raging psychopath.

Plus the Night Lord in question is named as the Chief Librarian of the Night Lords legion. Definitely not a nobody.

Just finished it. For a very short story, it was quite good.

If anyone wishes to know the plot:

Night Lord Librarian? Commander-Keen.

I hope this short tidbit can lead to something bigger in the HH (that isn't solely Garro related, even if that makes the most sense).

Not really. Not any more absurd than loyalist World Eater
