Black Library Description

"When Brother Arkio claims to be a reincarnation of Sanguinius, the Blood Angels’ spiritual father, the message is clear: follow me or die. Rafen kneels before Arkio and swears an oath of devotion – but the words are ashes in his mouth, and in his heart, he knows that he and his brother will have a reckoning that only one of them will survive."[1]

Collected in this volume:

Deus Encarmine

"On the remote world of Cybele, the Adeptus Astartes of the Blood Angels Chapter fight a losing battle against the forces of Chaos. Battle-brother Arkio leads a counter-attack that has the enemy reeling, and there is talk that this is a holy sign. Is Arkio blessed by the spirit of Sanguinius, or is the turmoil for the Blood Angels just beginning?"[2]

Blood Debt

"Inquisitor Ramius Stele is desperate to escape a world being consumed by the dread forces of Chaos. As the corrupting influence of the Ruinous Powers threatens to consume his soul, salvation arrives in the form of Captain Erasmus Tycho and the Blood Angels. But Stele is hiding a deadly secret, and if the Blood Angels discover it, his life – and soul – will be forfeit. How far will the inquisitor go to hide the truth?"[3]

Deus Sanguinius

"The Blood Angels Chapter is on the verge of being torn apart by a religious schism in their midst. Brother Arkio claims to be a reincarnation of Sanguinius, the Blood Angels' Primarch, and spiritual father, and has laid down the law: follow me, or die. Arkio's brother, Rafen, must decide where he stands in the conflict in the explosive conclusion to the Blood Angels saga."[4]
