The Primarchs is an anthology and the 20th book in the Horus Heresy Series, which was released on May 29, 2012.[1]

It is the seventh volume in the Horus Heresy series to make the New York Times bestseller list, and the second such anthology, after Age of Darkness. It was later included in "The Novels: Volume 4" eBook collection.


Gathered within this anthology are four novellas focusing on some of the mightiest warriors and leaders that mankind has ever known – Fulgrim, Lion El'Jonson, Ferrus Manus and Alpharius Omegon – and the roles that they may have yet to play in a war which threatens to change the face of the Imperium forever.[1]

The Lion

by Gav Thorpe
