Age of Darkness, edited by Christian Dunn, is the sixteenth book in the Horus Heresy Series, and the second anthology in that series. A number of authors contribute to the series, but the storyline follows the same characters through Horus' descent into Chaos. It was first published in May 2011.[1]

The anthology is one of seven volumes in the Horus Heresy series to make the New York Times bestseller list. It was later included in "The Novels: Volume 4" eBook collection.

Book Description

After the betrayal at Isstvan, Horus begins his campaign against the Emperor, a galaxy-wide war that can lead only to Terra. But the road to the final confrontation between father and son is a long one – seven years filled with secrecy and silence, plans and foundations being formed across distant stars. An unknown history is about to be unveiled as light is shed on the darkest years of the Horus Heresy, and revelations will surface that will shake the Imperium to its very foundation...[1]
