Another Monday, another new story. Last time, it was a comedy caper with the Old World’s dynamic duo, Gotrek and Felix. This time, we’re travelling to the year 40,000, and the far side of the galaxy with Varro Tigurius, Chief Librarian of the Ultramarines Space Marine Chapter.

As his warriors lead a desperate rearguard to allow the world’s citizens to evacuate, Chief Librarian Tigurius tackles a monstrous new presence – a beast whose psychic powers threaten to overwhelm even him. Can he survive his first encounter with this creature, or will he be lost to the might of the hive mind?
