The Serpent Beneath

A Horus Heresy novella

When a leak is detected at the covert Tenebrae installation, Omegon assembles an elite team of operatives to undertake a top secret mission – to infiltrate the Alpha Legion itself! 

It's as much of an insight into the secretive practices of the Alpha Legion and the differing agendas of their shadowy leaders as you're likely to get... assuming that you can trust any of it, of course!

When your entire existence is based around deceit, who can you trust? That's the question that plagues Omegon, one of the twin primarchs of the Alpha Legion, as he prepares a team of elite operatives for the most difficult and dangerous mission any of the Alpha Legion have ever attempted to infiltrate a secret installation controlled by the Alpha Legion itself!

Written by Rob Sanders. This story is also available in The Primarchs, book XX of the Horus Heresy series.

The audiobook edition has a running time of 3 and a half hours, and is read by Sean Barrett.
