Dark Imperium: Plague War is a 2018 novel by Guy Haley, published by Black Library. It is the second book of the Dark Imperium series.

Cover description

In the void and upon the worlds of Greater Ultramar, the battle for the Imperium continues. Intent on rebuilding his home realm and using it as base to reconstruct the ravaged stellar empire of mankind, the returned primarch Roboute Guilliman proceeds with his war to drive Mortarion and his Death Guard Traitor Legion from the domain of the Ultramarines. But when Guilliman brings his brother to battle upon the diseased plains of Parmenio, the intervention of a greater power in their fraternal struggle threatens to upend the Imperial Regent’s understanding of the galaxy, and his place within it. Primarchs and ideologies clash in this second, thrilling part of the Dark Imperium trilogy.[1]

Second edition

A second edition of the novel was released alongside the original Dark Imperium in 2021 to coincide with the release of Dark Imperium: Godblight. Alongside minor editorial and name changes, the 2nd edition of Plague War maintains that only 12 years have passed since the start of the Indomitus Crusade instead of the original 100.[2]
