Fall of Damnos is the fifth novel in the Space Marine Battles Series. It was written by Nick Kyme and published in 2010, and re-published in Damnos (Anthology) in September 2013.

Cover Description

When Damnos is hit by cataclysmic earthquakes, an ancient force is awakened. Deep beneath the earth, the necrons rise from their slumber to decimate the human populace. All appears lost until salvation comes from the heavens — the Ultramarines brave an orbital bombardment to deploy their forces on Damnos, led by two legendary warriors — Captain Cato Sicarius and Chief Librarian Tigurius. They are the planet's last, great hope against the remorseless alien foes, but tensions within their ranks threaten to derail victory. As battle rages on Damnos, and the Ultramarines seek to defeat their soulless enemies, Tigurius receives a terrible vision — a vision telling of the death of a hero...

Synopsis

The novel follows Captain Cato Sicarius and the 2nd Company of the Ultramarines during the Damnos Incident, when the planet Damnos is overrun by awakening Necrons.
