At the heart of a rift in space and time awaits a monster from the darkest imaginings of man, a daemonic being of immense power and evil. A lone Grey Knight, Brother Istafel, is sent on a desperate and suicidal mission to banish this dark entity. But as he approaches the Crucible rift, he realises that all is not as it seems... Why was he sent on this mission? What is the purpose? And do his masters expect him to survive?

The Grey Knights are all that stands between mankind and the ravages of Chaos. Since their secretive beginnings during the Horus Heresy, these legendary Space Marine daemon hunters have journeyed into the dark realms of the warp – and beyond – in pursuit of their supernatural enemies.
All is dust... Spurned by his former brothers and his father Magnus the Red, Ahriman is a wanderer, a sorcerer of Tzeentch whose actions condemned an entire Legion to an eternity of damnation.
On a distant world of the Imperium, an agent of Rogal Dorn finds himself the prisoner of a Legion whose loyalties may be divided.
