The Eagle's Talon is the twenty-ninth audio drama for the The Horus Heresy series that was not originally released as part of an anthology or other release. The Eagle's Talon was pre-released together with the audio drama Iron Corpses in January 2015 at the 2015 Horus Heresy Weekender by the Black Library. The title was later published in prose format as part of "Summer of Reading 2015: Week 1 Collection", and again as part of the Eye of Terra main series anthology novel.

Official Synopsis

In desperation, a covert team of Imperial Fists resort to seemingly unthinkable measures in order to regain the upper hand - but will their mission to seize the macro-transporter Eagle's Talon ensure victory, or merely spell doom for their loyal allies on the surface below?
