Cover Description

Only the Sigillite can save Revuel Arvida's body, and only his primarch can save his soul.[1]

His body ravaged by the flesh-change, Thousand Sons sorcerer Revuel Arvida clings to life by the merest thread. And even if Malcador the Sigillite can save him, what will remain?[1]

The Thousand Sons sorcerer Revuel Arvida guided his White Scars kinsmen through all the horrors of the ruinstorm, even though the psychic exertion almost killed him. Now on Terra, he clings to life by the merest thread, his body ravaged by the curse of his Legion - the insidious flesh-change. The primarch Jaghatai Khan demands that Arvida be saved, no matter the cost. But even if such a thing were possible, what would remain of his mind and soul?[1]
