The Horus Heresy is a series of novels, anthologies and audiobooks based on the historic events known as the Great Crusade and the Horus Heresy, about 10,000 standard years before the present 41st millennium. The novels are written by different authors, but follow the same storyline - the fall of Warmaster Horus and his campaign of treachery to usurp the Emperor as ruler of the Imperium.

The publishing order of the books does not reflect an attempt to tell the overall storyline chronologically; the stories are set are various points within the overall meta-plot, gradually illuminating the whole tale from various perspectives. There are directly connected works within this structure, however. For instance, the first three novels are a distinct trilogy, the eleventh is a sequel (of sorts) to the sixth, and the 12th and 15th are intended by the authors to be a duology.

Official Books

As of 2019 there have been 54 Horus Heresy main novels published by Games Workshop. Of them, sixteen are anthologies of Horus Heresy novellas, short stories and audio dramas. Unabridged audio books of every entry have also been released.

Following the 54th novel, The Buried Dagger, the Horus Heresy main series concluded and was replaced by the Siege of Terra series.

Siege of Terra

Following the 54th Horus Heresy novel The Buried Dagger the series reset and rebranded itself under the The Horus Heresy: Siege of Terra label. Though rebooted and renumbered, the Siege of Terra is a continuation of the story that began in the Horus Heresy series. The Siege of Terra will see the finale of the overall Horus Heresy story and is set during the events of the Battle of Terra.

The Siege of Terra will span eight main novels and an unknown number of novellas.

The Primarchs

Horus Heresy: The Primarchs is a series in which each book will cover a different Primarch before the coming of the Horus Heresy.
