Default Black Librarys 2019 Advent Calendar!

Day 1: Illyrium


THE STORY
As the Ultramarines flagship Macragge's Honour comes under attack, Seargeant Ammon rushes to the quarters of Tarasha Euten, the primarch's chamberlain. Euten has been by Guilliman's side since he was a child, and counselled him across the decades. Old in body but still sharp and wise, she gives the sergeant a lesson in leadership, using an example from the primarch's youth. Prepare to discover how young Roboute conquered the hill tribes and brought peace to Macragge… just not in the way the history books record.

We've done this before so I will continue with this, this year too!

Day 2: The Crystal Cathedral.


THE STORY
On Caro, the smallest moon of the planet Lena Beta, there stands a miracle. In a gorge on the moon is a cathedral to the Emperor made from pure, black glass. Sister Augusta and her fellow Battle Sisters from the Order of the Bloody Rose stand guard over this most unexpected find, taking joy in its presence – for this place was built to honour fallen sisters of their order more than a millennium ago. Yet their peace cannot last. As they mark the moment with a solemn service, an unexpected attack leaves the sisters forced to bring death to this holy place, whether they want to or not.

There has been an increasing number of Adepta Sororitas-shorts as of late and I would appreciate if they made a anthology or collection with them all just to buy them in one go.

Day 3: Reflections in Steel


THE STORY
The town of Kyoshima has survived many perils, from vicious grot wolf riders to warbands of feral flesh-eaters. Now, doom has finally come in the form of Kravoth's Reavers, followers of the Dark Gods. The fortunate died quickly – young Kenji suffers a worse fate, rescued from death by the raiders' leader, Gharm, and taken as a slave. In his captivity, he sees just one hope of survival – to join his captors. Can Kenji walk the Eightfold path, or will he be consumed by the darkness?

Uninterested!

Day 4: A Question of Taste


THE STORY
In Necromunda's Hive Primus, life is very different for those who toil in the underhive and those who live up-hive, far above the planet's scarred surface. In the underhive, life is cheap. Up-hive, it is very, very expensive – and a commodity to be sold, not least by the guilds who grind down the remains of the dead into corpse-starch to feed the masses. When one such noble hosts a dinner with representatives of other guilds, the true cost of life becomes clear – as does one of the ways in which life is the same no matter where in the hive you live – there will always be war…

Might get this one!

Day 5: Augur of Despair Part 1


THE STORY
The Arch-Militant Neyam Shai Murad and the noble crusader Gotfret de Montbard have retrieved a great prize from the Blackstone Fortress – a cube they found with the help of an unscrupulous data-trader. This mysterious artefact may answer all their questions about the alien labyrinth… if they can return it to Precipice. Many dangers stand in their way, including a rampaging ambull, Negavolt cultists and the ever-shifting maze of the fortress itself. And even if they do return, they shall need aid to decipher the device, from a most untrustworthy ally…

I am intrigued by this, but I do love some lore regarding the Blackstone Fortress.

Day 6: Augur of Despair: Part 2


THE STORY
Disaster has befallen Neyam Shai Murad and Gotfred de Montbard. Trapped in Gandar Sett's laboratory and surrounded by the mad genetor's living experiments, they must fight to survive. However, Sett holds their future in his hands and he will not see his creatures harmed. Can the pair fend off the wild beasts long enough for the containment fields to reactivate, and defend the genetor in the process? Even if they do, they may not be able to trust Sett to help them unravel the mystery of the artefact they found in the Blackstone Fortress…

Day 7: Augur of Despair: Part 3


THE STORY
Neyam Shai Murad and Gotfred de Montbard have returned to the Blackstone Fortress, guided by a map projected by the mysterious artefact they found on their last expedition. With only the servitor X-101 to aid them, they seek a shrine they believe the map will lead them to – but the defences of the alien labyrinth stand against them, and should they find what they seek, they may discover that even greater foes await them, for many are the dangers that lurk within the Blackstone Fortress.


Chris Dows likes to work in trilogies. XD

Day 8: Strong Bones


THE STORY
Stugkor, Aldok and Chigger are young ogors, devotees of the Everwinter who follow their stomachs – even when they're told not to by their tribe's elders. Embarking on a raid on a human settlement, the trio find that their prey has already been taken – and turned into undead monsters of bone. Worst of all, their flesh has been abandoned to rot uneaten… The three ogors discover to their horror that their prey have now become the predators…

Day 9: Serpents of Ardemis


THE STORY
Lady Chettamandey and Lord Azariel of the Navigator House Brobantis visit the world of Ardemis for the governor's annual ball – but it's not just dancing and drinks on the agenda. Contracts and politics are at stake. When an anonymous note is left in their chambers providing just the information they need, it falls to Chetta and Azariel to untangle a twisted web of motivations and get to the heart of a mystery.

I'm interested in Mike Brooks Navigator-stuff so this is a must-buy later on for me!

Day 10: The Revelation of the Word


THE STORY
Long ago, the primarch Lorgar was humbled by his brother Guilliman for his belief in the Emperor's divinity. Led down a dark road by this shaming, Lorgar embraced Chaos. Now, he and his Word Bearers rampage across Guilliman's realm, burning his 500 worlds in the name of their new gods. But on such world, Lorgar finds a mystery that brings his past into the present and shines a new light on his endeavours. It seems that Lorgar's legacy may be greater than even he could have ever imagined…

So the regular HH-series is not over it seems. There will be anthologies FOR YEARS to come it seems like! Not sure what I feel about re-treading through the Shadow Crusade again.

THE STORY

A former member of the planet's militia, he lost his family fighting the orks a decade ago. Now the so-called 'warrior weed' threatens to take all that he has left. But fate has other plans for him… A chance encounter with a wounded woman sets him on a collision course with a group that plans to bring destruction to Ballard's Run – and nothing will stand in their way.
