The Last Son of Dorn (Novel)
The Last Son of Dorn is a Black Library novel by David Guymer, the tenth in The Beast Arises series featuring the Imperial war against the Ork Warboss known as The Beast. It was published in October 2016.
The first attempt to attack the orks' home world has failed, but the Imperium is not defeated yet. New, more flexible fighting teams of Adeptus Astartes have been assembled – the Death Watch. Allies from the Imperium's past have also pledged their support - the legendary Sisters of Silence, female warriors with anti-psyker powers. With new troops, and revised tactics, Koorland leads a second attack against the orks' home world. This time, the attack goes better, and Koorland is able to confront the Beast in battle. But the creature is truly a monster, more than a match for even a primarch. How can the last son of Dorn possibly prevail?
