Honour Guard is the fourth novel in the Gaunt's Ghosts novel series by Dan Abnett.

Cover Description[1]

In disgrace after a catastrophic war, Colonel-Commissar Ibram Gaunt and the Tanith First are sent to retrieve precious artefacts from a world lost to Chaos. With enemy all around them and time against them, Gaunt's Ghosts and their allies must prevent the holy relics of Saint Sabbat from falling into their foes' hands, and as mysterious events begin to occur, Gaunt begins to suspect that the Saint herself might be aiding them from beyond the grave.


The Tanith First and Only are in conflict on the Shrine World of Hagia against a cultist army, the Infardi. After the failed taking of the city of Holy Doctrinopolis, Gaunt is tasked with the recovery of certain holy relics from the Shrinehold of Saint Sabbat, as a psyker beacon is ignited, drawing Chaos forces to the world to reinforce it. It is now a race against time.
