Do Eagles Still Circle the Mountain?

An Ultramarines short story

On the ork-infested world of Sycorax, Ultramarines Captain Uriel Ventris is pushed into a fighting retreat when the battle goes awry. But his fight for survival turns into something very different as a long-buried mystery unfolds.

READ IT BECAUSE
Uriel Ventris returns! And in a way, this tale returns him to where he began in Nightbringer, as a new threat is revealed that may follow him into his future...

THE STORY
Captain Uriel Ventris and his battle-brothers descend on the world of Sycorax to cleanse it of the ork menace that has plagued it for centuries. But when the battle goes awry and all contact is lost with his fellow captain, Fabian, Ventris and his warriors are pushed into a fighting retreat. As the greenskins slowly overrun the Ultramarines positions, hope of survival rests on Mount Shokereth. But a mystery surrounds this ancient edifice, a secret lain dormant for millennia.
