The next numbered instalment in the epic series is fast approaching. This novel is a major step on the road to Terra. Legions clash, night falls across the Imperium, and a battle rages whose consequences for the entire galaxy will echo 10.000 years into the future.
I thought initially it might be the War in the Webway, that it was just a teaser title to obscure The Master of Mankind. But it clearly looks like both Ultramarines and the Imperial Fists is involved. So how did the Ultras get to join with the Fists with the Ruinstorm in the way? Though if its somewhere truly closer to the Battle for Terra, then the Age of Darkness may be comming to an end soon.
An Imperial Fist. Literally. Who does it belong to?
Death from above! But what Legion are they?
Unexpected allies. What's brought them together?
Edit: According to blabber im picking up, it appears to be on Sotha, where the Night Lords is striking at what the Ultramarines is hiding there. Their empathic beacon. - And that the big fister is Alexis Pollux. So we might see Sevatar and perhaps Curze involved as well. So clearly a followup to that Night Lords short that saw their ragtag fleet arriving at Sotha.
I do wonder how this 'sidebattle' is going to be that important for the overall heresy fight. Or even getting any closer to Terra as claimed by the teaser.
Edit 2: With a bit of thinking, it strikes me that this novel's true name might be the long rumored Nightfall.
