Cover Description[1]

When the world of Stern's Remembrance comes under attack by the forces of Chaos, it draws the attention of the Dark Angels. Company Master Zadakiel leads a squad of the Chapter's deadliest warriors – the Terminator armour-clad Deathwing – to purge the traitors and their dark master. But a greater plan is in action, and it falls to Deathwing Sergeant Balthasar to defend his commander from the machinations of the Ruinous Powers.
