The Horus Heresy is a war of Space Marine vs Space Marines, but other combatants lurk in the shadows... Here we see the precursors to Warhammer 40,000's Assassinorum temples in action, even as Horus despatches a monstrous assassin of his own.
After the horrors of Istvaan V, Horus declares outright war against the Imperium. In the shadows of the Emperor's Palace, powerful figures convene. Their plan is to send a team of assassins to execute the arch-traitor Horus and end the war for the galaxy of mankind before it's even begun. But what they cannot know is that another assassin is abroad already, with his sights firmly set on killing the Emperor.
