Now Peals Midnight is the sixty-forth short story published in The Horus Heresy series that was not originally part of an anthology novel. Now Peals Midnight was first published on day 9 of the Black Library's 2017 Advent Calendar.
Midnight is coming. For long years, the defenders of Terra have stood sentinel, awaiting the inevitable: the coming of the Warmaster, the Traitor Horus and his horde. For Rogal Dorn, his brother Primarchs and his loyal sons -- among the billions of others awaiting the breaking of the storm -- the wait is almost over. The sun is setting and night falling. And the enemy comes.
