The Dark King & The Lightning Tower

The Horus Heresy

The Dark King & The Lightning Tower

A Horus Heresy audio drama collection

Konrad Curze’s madness and Rogal Dorn’s fears for the war ahead are exposed in a pair of audio dramas that take in the Great Crusade and the rebuilding of the Imperial Palace.

They provide insight into the madness of the Night Haunter and how Rogal Dorn feels about the war his brothers have begun. And for the first time, delve into the labyrinthine halls of the Imperial Palace and see the preparations for Horus' invasion.

The Dark King by Graham McNeill
The acts of terror and warmongering by Konrad Curze, Primarch of the Night Lords Legion, have earned the ire of his brother primarch, Rogal Dorn. Wracked by terrible visions of the future, Curze is driven insane and attacks Dorn, setting the Night Lord on an inexorable course towards eternal damnation.

The Lightning Tower by Dan Abnett
Rogal Dorn, Primarch of the Imperial Fists Legion, faces a stark reality - he must tear down the magnificence of the Emperor's Palace, a shining beacon in a galaxy of darkness, and turn it into a fortress. With the army of Horus drawing ever closer, as he blights the Palace with gunports and defence towers, Dorn must face a difficult question: "What are you afraid of?"

Running Time 76 Minutes. Performed by Danny Webb. Directed by Jason Haigh-Ellery
