Little Horus

A Horus Heresy short story

On Dwell, a simple pacification goes wrong as Little Horus Aximand finds himself facing other Space Marines, as well as his own doubts, in a battle that will change him forever.

It explores the aftermath of the battle for the Sons of Horus' souls and the fight that tore the Mournival apart and claimed two of their number. Find out how Little Horus feels about those events and the changed nature of the Legion.

'Little' Horus Aximand is uneasy about the direction that the Sons of Horus have taken. As he leads the Warmaster's forces in their attempt to bring the mausoleums of Dwell under their sway, he faces his own doubts, the planet's natives... and Space Marines of the Iron Hands. As battle rages with his erstwhile brothers, Little Horus faces a challenge that will change his life forever, if it doesn't end it altogether.

Written by Dan Abnett. This story also appears in Age of Darkness, book XVI of the Horus Heresy.

The audiobook edition has a running time of 56 minutes and is read by Martyn Ellis.
