This week, Black Library brings you a pair of books – an anthology of Warhammer 40,000 stories designed to be a great first read and a classic trio of Warhammer Chronicles novels about elves. Let’s take a closer look.
Nexus + Other Stories is a collection of tales from across the grim darkness of the far future which form a perfect entry point to the fiction of Warhammer 40,000.
It’s headed by the novella ‘Nexus’, in which Ultramarines Sergeant Allectius faces the necrons as their baleful influence spreads across the Pariah Nexus. This story is a great way to discover the latest hotspot in the Imperium’s war for survival and is a gripping tale of action and adventure.
‘Nexus’ is joined by a massive 15 short stories that will introduce you to the various factions of the Warhammer 40,000 universe, written by such luminaries as Rachel Harrison, Dan Abnett, Guy Haley, Danie Ware, and many more.
Guardians of the Forest details the Wood Elves of Athel Loren through the eyes of a Bretonnian knight who must ally with the fey folk to safeguard both their land and his from the depredations of Chaos.
The duology Defenders of Ulthuan and Sons of Ellyrion are set in the island realm of the High Elves as it comes under attack once more by the Witch King Malekith and his Dark Elves. A pair of brothers are destined to play vital roles in this great war – but torn asunder by their love for the same woman, will they save Ulthuan or doom it? This epic saga features appearances by many beloved characters and will immerse you in the culture of the High Elves.
French and German readers can also pre-order Nexus + Other Stories now, alongside other new releases. In French, Gaunt’s Ghosts are back in action in the omnibus The Saint: Part 2. This features the novels Straight Silver and Sabbat Martyr, the books which gave Dan Abnett’s series the reputation for being full of emotional tearjerkers where none of your favourite characters are safe… We’ll say no more for fear of spoilers.
German editions of a pair of epic Warhammer 40,000 novels join Nexus + Other Stories. The Indomitus Crusade begins in Guy Haley’s Avenging Son, as the returned Primarch Roboute Guilliman prepares the Imperium for war, giving you a look at the dawn of the Primaris Space Marines! The Infinite and the Divine focuses on the necrons Orikan the Diviner and Trazyn the Infinite as they play out a rivalry across the Imperium’s ten millennia of existence, with ancient knowledge of their race at stake.
