The Iron Within

A Horus Heresy short story

The Iron Warriors, now traitors, return to a world they conquered long ago. But one of their number remains loyal to the Emperor, and battle is joined on the fortress-world.

Loyalist traitors! Iron Warriors battle Iron Warriors, and Barbaras Dantioch, a very important character in the Horus Heresy, is introduced.

Years ago, the Iron Warriors left Barabaras Dantioch, a crippled warsmith, on the world of Lesser Damantyne. Now, having declared their allegiance to the traitor Horus, they have returned. As the planet's garrison prepares for war, Dantioch must choose between loyalty to his legion or to the Emperor.

Written by Rob Sanders. This story is also available in Age of Darkness, book XVI of the Horus Heresy series.

The audiobook edition has a running time of 113 minutes and is read by Jonathan Keeble.
