The Beheading is the twelfth and final volume in The Beast Arises series of novels.
Across the length and breadth of the galaxy, humankind celebrates its salvation, and relishes the prospect of a return to peace. But the war against the Orks has riven the political bedrock of the Imperium, exposing its rotten core. One man, one powerful man, decides he has the solution, and launches a campaign of destruction so terrible that thousands of Terran years later his actions will still be viewed with horror, and known as The Beheading.
