Just got my copy of Damocles in the mail today and a surprise was waiting on the book list inside. Another Apocalypse novel has been confirmed, Valedor by Guy Haley. And after looking that up and finding this, I am very very excited for it.
A book where the Tyranids win. Hasn't happened yet in BL, and Guy Haley's Genestealers in Death of Integrity were brilliantly done, so i'm looking forward to seeing how he handles the rest of the swarm. And a Space Marine Chapter that is extremely xenophobic even by Imperial standards, that too sounds like it will make for interesting characters and story.Defense of Valedor said:Defense of Valedor (997.M41) - The Tyranid Hive Fleet Leviathan overruns the Ecclesiarchy world of Valedor in a matter of hours, slaughtering the entire population of pilgrims and Ministorum Adepts, as well as overwhelming a Battle Barge of the Iron Lords Chapter. A small force of Battle-Sisters from the Order of the Sacred Rose represents the only humans to bear witness to the event, having barely fought their way clear of the carnage.
