Tallarn by John French is the forty-fifth book in the Horus Heresy Series. It was published in July 2017 as a hard cover novel, an ebook, and in audio format. The audio has a run time of 12 hours and 54 minutes, and it is narrated by Jonathan Keeble and Peter Wickham.

The anthology collects previously released material: a novel, a novella and two short stories.


As the Warmaster's campaign of galactic domination continues, his generals seek out fresh battlefields to conquer. After leaving the Crone World of Iydris behind, Perturabo strikes for Tallarn. A bitter, vengeful primarch, the lord of the Iron Warriors unleashes a deadly bombardment against the world, killing millions but entrenching the survivors. A brutal, all-consuming armoured conflict ensues, the greatest of the war, and one that grinds down all combatants over more than a year of relentless battles. But Perturabo's reasons for the attack are about more than unleashing punitive destruction against the Imperium - he has an entirely darker purpose in mind.
