- —Book's tag-line
Legacies of Betrayal is the thirty-first volume of the The Horus Heresy series of novels and is an anthology collection of short stories and a novella.
Only from out of great conflict can true heroes arise. With the galaxy aflame and war on an unimaginable scale tearing the Imperium apart, champions of light and darkness venture onto countless fields of battle in service to their masters. They ask not for remembrance or reward – simply to meet their destiny head-on, and only by embracing that destiny will they come to learn what the unseen future may yet hold for them...
