False Gods by Graham McNeill
Graham McNeill continues the story of the single most important event in the history of the Warhammer 40,000 universe. For years, fans have been clamouring for novels about the Horus Heresy - the bloody civil war that set Space Marine against Space Marine and nearly spelled the end of mankind at the hands of the traitor Horus. The second book, in the initial trilogy, will be a springboard for a full range of books set during this terrible war - when gods walked amongst the stars and the Emperor of Mankind ascended to the Golden Throne. "False Gods" takes the epic story onwards as Horus struggles to keep his armies in line and the seeds of his downfall are sown.
